Loving the Enemy (Part 1) (2 Peter 3:1-7)Tommy Boring, January 17, 2016
Part of the 2 Peter 3 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Some 2000 years later the scripture is still relevant. Be careful not to exclude the old testament from the new. Both old and new are just as relevant today as it was years ago. Those that choose to not believe the bible are scoffers, those that will mock the bible. Those that scoff are prideful in their own belief. They mock sin because they live in their own flesh. They will declare that what God has said is wrong and what they want is good. One of the reasons why people mock God is because no one stands against it. 60-70 years ago there was still a fear of God. So what's the truth? If God is truth then everything is a lie. There can be only one truth. The scoffers will mock salvation because they think they do not need it. The difference between the scoffers and the saved is simply the knowing. The saved were once scoffers. Those that scoff will mock the fact they are being told what to do. God is sovereign, completely in full control and the only way one can be saved. The unsaved will often mock the second coming. The truth is that they are willingly ignorant because they know there is a creation but choose to not believe in a creator. God came before and He WILL come again. He told the world that He would destroy them by flood afterwards giving a promise by a rainbow that He wouldn't destroy it again by a flood. He then said He would come by fire on the second return.

2 Peter 3:1-7
1This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: 3Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (KJV)
