2 Peter 2

1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:

8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.

12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;

14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

  1. 20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

    21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

    22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
    Once we come to the knowledge of God and experience this great Holy Ghost.
    The knowledge of this great truth brings with it a responsibility to walk in the truth and never to allow yourself to be deceived by entangling in the world. I do not want to be like the dog and return to what I have been delivered from. We must pray everyday where we can keep our hearts from the desires of the flesh!

  2. 1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

    2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

    There is but one God, and Jesus is his name. Many speak against the oneness of god and believe the lie of the Trinity. Jesus is the Father in creation, Son in redemption and Holy Ghost in us.

  3. 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

    There is a way out. The Lord knows how much we can handle.
    1 Corinthians 10:13 (KJV) There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

    Sometimes, it may seem the Lord has miss-calculated and presented us with more than we truly can handle. However, His word does not lie. The Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever AMEN! It is our job to keep our faith and trust in the Lord and His wisdom in us. We can overcome!!
    Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

    2 Peter 2:7-9 NLT But God also rescued Lot out of Sodom because he was a righteous man who was sick of the shameful immorality of the wicked people around him. (8) Yes, Lot was a righteous man who was tormented in his soul by the wickedness he saw and heard day after day. (9) So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment.

    Lot was a righteous man and God delivered him from judgement, however, because of Lot’s choice to camp near Sodom, we find that he loses his family.

    We must count the costs of our decisions and even if we can handle being near to sin without it tainting our hearts we must decide if the sacrifice of our families is worth it.

  5. In reading this chapter, red flags are going left and right. But, so many don’t see them or they just don’t want too. We have to be careful who we are listening to….can you discern whose voice it is? Verses 17-19 MSG says “There’s nothing to these people—they’re dried-up fountains, storm-scattered clouds, headed for a black hole in hell. They are loudmouths, full of hot air, but still they’re dangerous. Men and women who have recently escaped from a deviant life are most susceptible to their brand of seduction. They promise these newcomers freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption, for if they’re addicted to corruption—and they are—they’re enslaved.” Do not buy back into this sinful world; but, hold on to Jesus, the One you know really loves you.

  6. 1. But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves.

    2. Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered.

    3. In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed.

    4. For God did not spare even the angels who sinned. He threw them into hell, in gloomy pits of darkness, where they are being held until the day of judgment. NLT

    God is pure and holy, and will not let un-repented sin go unpunished, even if it was by a prophet, minister, or an angel. There are many false ministers now preaching easy lies to get more followers and more money; be careful that you don’t believe their sales pitches and go down with them!

  7. More immersion

    2 Peter 2:19 (KJV Strong’s)
    19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

    Overcome – to overcome, worsted, to be conquered by one, forced to yield to one

    Bondage – to make a slave of, reduce to bondagemetaph. give myself wholly to one’s needs and service, make myself a bondman to him

    Immersion – to immerse, : to put (something) in a liquid so that all parts are completely covered
    : to make (yourself) fully involved in some activity or interest

    Whatever we give ourselves to is what will have control over our lives. Whether it be some activity, or inactivity. We will become like who we serve.

    When people are in the world they soon find themselves walking, talking, dressing, and acting like the shows, music, or stars that they immerse themselves in.

    When I had backslid the first few songs didn’t cause me to transform. However because of the immersion I soon went from dressing in jeans and t-shirts to wearing all black, trench coat, jewelry, and soon much worse.

    My choice of immersion converted be away from the Lord and his ways.

    To light up in blazing fire we can’t just have a little fuel. We must immerse ourselves in the fuel of his spirit. The more we immerse ourselves in his word and his presence the more we will become like him.

  8. 1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

    2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

    3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

    Today in our world there is so many religions that use some of the truth and mix it up with there own knowledge and understanding. They have made a living off of these false doctrines and teachings, enticing, converting and lieing to there congregations, to a point that God is not the center of there teachings any more. Which is why we must continue to gain more knowledge of His Word. We must not be content to know Jesus, but to really know about Him and what He has left in His Word. We must be hungry to truly know our God and Saviour because in doing this He will unlock even more mysteries that we have not seen yet and that should make us excited!! MORE KNOWLEDGE!

  9. DONT GO BACK

    20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
    21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    Typically it begins with a seeming simple display of stubbornness, stubbornness soon births resentment and then rebellion.

    17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
    18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
    19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

    The path back to the pit and the vomit of sin paved with pretend. The description Peter gave was there were “wells of water” with “no water”.

    They looked like a good source, they appeared to be a hopeful solution, they were equipped to provide resources, but they were empty, had nothing eternal to offer.

    Why?

    10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

    Selfish lust, they despised structure and accountability, presumed themselves to be better than others and spoke evil of leadership. We must guard ourselves against these people as they have nothing to offer. Only swelling words of false hope, but no real water. We must guard our hearts that we DONT GO BACK.

  10. 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

    Sometimes it seems like people get away doing bad things, they do something they know is wrong and nothing seems to happen to them, they don’t seem to receive their “just punishment”. But in the end we all get what is deserving of us, noone will get away with anything when the day of judgment comes for that person, and they won’t get any worse judgment then what is gonna be brought to them at the end of their lives.

    Philemon 3:19 Their end is their destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.

    And in this same verse, it tells how God will deliver us from the temptations of life. Notice it doesn’t say we won’t go through temptations. We will all go through some sort of temptations in life, but God will deliver us from them, he won’t keep in the season of temptation but he will deliver us out.

    1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not uncommon of to man. God is faithful and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

  11. 22 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
    21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    The lost. We all have been lost. We all have been tempted. This is why we must pray for the lost and praybthat God will use us to reach them. But this passage is talk more about the prodicals. Pray that they will see that they should come back home.

  12. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

    20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

    21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

    22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    So many people are delivered from the sin that has had them bound up, and then they turn back to it. We must not look back to the sins of our past, that is not who we are anymore, we have been set free!! Lord help me to overcome every sin and to not look back!!

  13. So God knows how to rescue the godly from evil trials. And he knows how to hold the feet of the wicked to the fire until Judgment Day. (‭2 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭9‬ MSG)

    We serve a mighty God. Who knows every smallest detail about our lives. I’m thankful for God has been my Rescue. 

  14. 9 So God knows how to rescue the godly from evil trials. And he knows how to hold the feet of the wicked to the fire until Judgment Day. (NLT)

    What a mighty God we serve! How is always on time!

  15. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    I can only speak for myself. In the 28 years of service to my Lord and Savior I left him 3 times. Before you jump into judging her me out, for we all have a good intention when we leave. It is not all of the sudden it is a slow thing. Little by little, so and so hurt me, I no longer agree to this or that, I don’t feel comfortable. SURE YOU DON’T FEEL COMFORTABLE FOR YOU HAVE BEEN HANGING WITH lucy TOO LONG. I first left after the death of my son. No one could understand, I couldn’t see why take my baby when I took care of him and it was my whole world. There are parents out there that abuse them and keep having babies like there is no tomorrow, but here I was empty hands, couldn’t see the blessing God had just given me 9 months prior, my sweet Gabby. Only saw the gap, the emptiness Tony (Gabby’s twin left) and now my almost 8 year old. Filled my heart with bitterness, anger, I kept saying I was protecting myself (coup out) no I was hurting others like I was hurting. So I left. But thank God for a praying Mamma my sweet mother in law. Never said a word, just prayed, never preached just prayed. I came back to church for about 3 years then I left again. You see I wanted my husband saved and our church had too many standards, too hard for him, it was made to weed out those that couldn’t make it. No fire, no desire to grow, etc…. excuses, just excuses. I was so sick and angry that it was just better to just leave. No one care enough to come ask how I was doing, or check on my husbands. One church did (NOT THE ONE WE WERE GOING TO) They came, they serve, they loved, without asking anything in return not even our attendance to the church. They come and ask my husband what can we do to make things better and he will answer and things were done the very next day THE LOVE OF GOD had no religion. I still remember that family with so much love. My husband knew the love of God by the love of the Meyers, Bill and Nelda, and a team that never let him lift a finger for my care or the care of Gabby. My health did not improve, the move to somewhere warm was unavoidable. Here comes the Boyds, full of the love that Christ can only put in their hearts. Helped us, through thick and thin, loved us when we felt unlovable, taught us what serving was about. My husband after 21 years of prayer got baptized in Jesus Name again at a church that knows what the love of Jesus is, what serving others is, what making everyone feel welcome is. The Pentecostals of Fort Worth. You find him there every Saturday serving and every Sunday Morning. I still pray for the Holy Ghost for I know the promises are for him and all of those to come. I love my church and will never leave it again. I share this because too many of us leave for silly, dumb, little reasons… but eternity is a high price to pay for a misunderstanding or just a situation that when you surrender them to God He WILL TURN IT AROUND FOR HIS GLORY AND BLESS YOU BEYOND OF WHAT YOU LOST.

  16. ” You are a slave to whatever controls you”

    What a statement! Wow!! This chapter is truly an eye opener!!!

    Deception is all around us as we speak, as we live, as we breath, the enemy ready to take souls captive! Quick and ready,” and to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” Only if we allow him to!!! This happens way to many times because we have a lack of a prayer life, a lack of worship unto GOD, and a lack of reading our bible! No relationship with the Saviour equals to no foundation. So it’s so easy for satan to suck the living day lights out of you!! I must be constant in prayer, in the word, in worship, and in relationship with Jesus!!

    Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. (‭1 John‬ ‭2‬:‭15-17‬ KJV)

  17. 19 They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you. (NLT)

    What or who controls you? Like pastor said last night, don’t blame the devil because he cannot force you to do anything but he sure can persuade you. Then once you make that decision, to which ever way you make it, you open yourself up to be controlled by it.

    I pray that our commitments last night to God would keep us from being those this chapter refers to as the dogs who return to their vomit and pigs to their mud. We know better and to deliberately turn away from God and go back to your sinful ways is just foolish. Be strong in the Lord and remember the greatness of His mercy and grace when He loved us enough to shed His blood for us.l and bring us salvation.

  18. 1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

    2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

    These people are like Ahimaaz that Pastor preached about last night, they are running with no message of truth. They have nothing to pass on in the race of life to eternity except deception and a twisted view of what truth really is. We must search ourselves daily that we be not deceived. The race is not to the one who runs the swiftest, but to the one that endures to the end – the same shall be saved! Hold on to the truth, love it, bind it to your heart so you have a legacy, an inheritance that is worth more than monies to pass on to your family.

  19. NLT 3 In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed. 15 They have wandered off the right road and followed the footsteps of Balaam son of Beor,f who loved to earn money by doing wrong. 16 But Balaam was stopped from his mad course when his donkey rebuked him with a human voice.

    Even though these prophets are gaining monies, God will one day judge them. They rely on deceptiveness, and prey on people who do not know any better. Individuals with a greed mentality are always looking for ways to steal money from the innocent. They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.

    Its great, it took a supposedly dumb and stubborn donkey to speak to Balaam. But a donkey are quite smart, they know the path they walk on. Once his Balaam’s eyes were opened to God, he ended up blessing the Israelites. God will use any method to try to steer you back to his ways.

  20. 8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

    9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

    We should be careful of the people we surround ourselves with.. one righteous man in a city of the ungodly must have encountered much and wavered often. In his faith, in his thinking, and in his roghteousness. If Lot hadn’t spent the majority of his life with Abraham listening, praying and seeking God he would have ended up just like his children. We must strive to have a relationship with God like Abraham did, that way when we find ourselves surrounded by the ungodly we are not moved, nor does our faith fail us.

  21. In this scripture are many warnings to observe. Keep in mind to be aware of false teachers & prophets and to not be ensnared of the things of this world, lusts, covetousness, etc. etc.

    Keep connected, repent, turn, focus on Jesus……

  22. 17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

    18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

    19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

    In scripture we find the blind leading the blind and both fall, but in this chapter, these people are maliciously leading others to destruction, counting their followers as merchandise. They promise salvation but are servants of corruption. We must know the truth and never waiver from it though men come and speak enticing words. Enticing words are just that-words designed to cause you to desire what they have to offer. If they offer something different than the truth we’ve been taught-one God, his name is Jesus and being born again of water and spirit, it isn’t truth!

  23. 2 Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

    Rev. 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

  24. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

    22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    Th danger that some Christians face. Most unknowingly bring damnation over there lives, and not even realize it. What can be worse that going to hell, being in eternal damnation, being tormented in eternal fire, in complete darkness separated from God for all eternity. I can not even begin to imagine what could be worse, just thinking that so many souls are headed that direction from just the people we as a church minister to on a weekly basis is such a heartbreaking feeling. We need to have the same sense of urgency an ER doctor has with a patient that is brought into the ER on a gurney from a ambulance. To do everything that we can to connect them with the one who can give them life everlasting.
    This is the call to all those that want to help in the POFW emergency room. Is it too late?
    Ecc 9:4 .”..while there is life, there is hope…”

  25. In each historic illustration God judged sinners-while at the same time delivering the godly. Lets not be too concerned about any troubles we experience here. Its what happens on Judgment day that counts.

  26. 7, “And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:”
    8, “(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
    9, “The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:”

    1 Cor. 10:13, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
    Heb. 2:18, “For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour (to give assistance to in time of need or distress; help; aid; relieve) them that are tempted.”

    What a MERCIFUL and FAITHFUL God we serve! He is our DELIVERER and HELP in time of need. Thank You JESUS!!

  27. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

    Hallelujah! What a powerful verse…it’s better for them to NOT have known the way of righteousness than to turn away after knowing it. Oh Jesus!!! Nothing is better than you Jesus I surrender all my life to you because you are great and powerful Jesus 🙂 sometimes us adults act like children in thinking we know what’s best for us and ignore our fathers guidance and advice! My God already overcame the devil for us and yet we act like if were standing on no foundation. My God has the all mighty power to do anything! Don’t be bound by all the things the enemy wants to throw at you and lie to you. The devil is under our feet!!!! Great move of God this weekend 🙂 HALLELUJAH! Let’s reach those that are lost and hungry for the Word of God 🙂

  28. “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment”. The Lord (Jesus) is just and loving, which is why one is given a life time, to make a choice on where one will spend eternity. Dear God, help me to see myself as you do, and repent over anything that is not right, while I have time; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. In God we trust! What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  29. 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

    God is still a deliverer. Temptations are going to come, but God is able to deliver us from them all. He will give you strength in your time of weakness. I praise the Lord because he is my savior.

  30. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

    My heart is grieved for back sliders Tonight. Know rightousness, living righteously , and enduring righteously through the test of time are three different thIngs. All have the same word in common but each come with it’s own price. If we are going to make heaven our home we must know it, live it, and endure in it until He returns.

  31. 1 But there were also lying prophets among the people then, just as there will be lying religious teachers among you. They’ll smuggle in destructive divisions, pitting you against each other – biting the hand of the One who gave them a chance to have their lives back! They’ve put themselves on a fast downhill slide to destruction, 2 but not before they recruit a crowd of mixed-up followers who can’t tell right from wrong. 3 They’re only out for themselves. They’ll say anything, anything, that sounds good to exploit you. They won’t, of course, get by with it. They’ll come to a bad end, for God has never just stood by and let that kind of thing go on. MSG
    Be careful who you are listening to. If someone tells you God said then make sure they have bible to back it up.

  32. In reading 2Peter 2:1 my mind went to Matthew 7: 16 by their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes or figs from the source? And Galatians 1 :8 but even if we are in angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preach to you let them be under God’s curse!

  33. 2 Peter 2: 2 NKJV
    And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.

    For many people it is easy to just go with the flow and attend a church where they preach what they want to hear.
    they look for the easy road and take it, or what fits them best.
    Many churches have been growing by thousands because they teach what everyone want to hear, not by what God’s demands of us.

    Its never easy to take a courageous stand for the truth. There is always a price.
    but I rather be a Noah and be rescued by God then died in the flood for my wicked ways.
    Or be a Lot that was spared by God mercy then to be destroy for the sin and their wicked corruption.

    LET US BE COURAGEOUS MAN AND WOMAN & STAND FOR WHAT IS TRUE!!!

  34. 8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

    His goodness and mercy followed Lot wherever he went

  35. This chapter discusses the false prophets who arose from the congregations and the punishment that they will suffer because of it. Peter uses OT examples to illustrate his point, even to include the angels who rebelled. He states that it would be better for them to never have known righteousness and turn away from it.

    It is important to observe that these false prophets did not arise from intellectual reasons but rather ethical ones. Many of them followed their sensuality, that is the lusts of their flesh. They were overtaken by sin (Gen 4:7).

    It behooves us to walk in the Spirit. When we indulge in the lusts of the flesh, the truth is not in us.

    4 Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, 5 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: 6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. (1 John 2:4-6)

  36. But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves. Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. (‭2 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭1-2‬ NLT)

    We must be careful about what our eyes and ears are watching and listening to. There are many ways that a person can get distracted if their heart isn’t in the right place. They will be led down a path of lies and false doctrine that are married to fear and anxiety. We must have a hold onto truth, we must have a relationship with Christ. Without Him we are nothing, without Him we walk the pathway leading to hell…

  37. Lord Jesus Christ I come to you tonite humble before you lord,for the passion,for I have for you God,for I need you in my life for I can’t live without you, you are my refugee through the darkest parts of the wilderness for your glory and grace shines off of you for you that is great that lives in me, for I show no fear through the darkest parts of the wilderness for you are my lamp that lives in me for your precious blood that you gave to me to live for you died for me father.! In Jesus Name Amen !!!!!!

  38. For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. (‭2 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭18‬ KJV)

    Beware of those around you who always flatter you. Have one ear to Jesus and you will always know the truth. It is sometimes difficulty to spot these things, but with the guidance of the Lord you will always have the surety that you are in his will.

  39. 2 Peter 2:2 Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them and their destruction has not been sleeping. For God did not spare angels when they sinned but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment, if he did not spare the ancient world he brought the flood on its ungodly people but protected Noah a preacher of righteousness and seven others .

  40. 1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

    Almost everyone that wants can publish a book or theory. There are speakers of all types, and preachers that manipulate the word. I’m am reminded of pastor preaching of more commitment and running and passing the Good News. The real doctrine and truth of God lies in the church that follows the doctrine given by Jesus to the apostles. Let’s not get tangled in but study the word and listen and obey the word of God being preached to us by his servant the man of God in our lives.

  41. v5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

    The people in Noah’s day as in this present time may scorn at GOD’S message . Peter called Noah
    ” a preacher of righteousness.
    We cannot ignore the TRUTH just because it may contradict his or her lifestyle.
    Those in Noah’s day were not just ignorant …but
    they were willfully ignorant . They chose to continue to disgrard the warnings of a GOD- fearing preacher of righteousness.
    Sadly to say it’s no different today.

  42. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

    20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

    21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

    22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

  43. 1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

    False prophets and denying of the Lord is happening all over the world. God doesn’t stand for that he has the power to destroy all evil.

    God will judge all and destroy the evil doers who refuse to follow him.

  44. Pollutions !!!! 20. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and savior Je’-sus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. Matt. 12 : 45; Heb. 6 : 4; 2 Pet. 1 : 2 21. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness,than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. I Love you Jesus !!!! I am victorious !!!! You have Risen !!!!
