1 Peter 1:5
5 Who [ho] are kept [phroureo] by [en] the power [dunamis] of God [theos] through [dia] faith [pistis] unto [eis] salvation [soteria] ready [hetoimos] to be revealed [apokalupto]
in [en] the last [eschatos] time [kairos].KJV-Interlinear
5 who are protected by the power
of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. NASB
Any person cannot
live for very long before he begins to understand his own weaknesses and
inabilities to control the world around him.
Look at the news in
recent days.Even a huge government, in
all of its branches, is seemingly run by incompetents.
Some are caught by
surprise, others try to manipulate for power and authority.All, lack the ability to control the many
aspects of an economy that has risen to great heights in recent decades.And all seemingly trying to take credit for
successes, or lay blame for its failures.None, when it comes right down to it, possess any authority or power to
do anything regarding the economy.
But for God, it is
different.God possess the authority,
the sovereignty, to command, to issue orders, and to gain complete and strict
obedience from the entire universe and its occupants.
God possesses the
power, the ability, to do whatever He wills.
Man can t control
anything.Man cannot control the weather,
the economy, or even his own heartbeat.It should be quit apparent that we all lack power and authority in life,
to control life.
But from the foundation
of the universe, from the very beginning of beginnings, God has preserved our
inheritance, our destiny, which is in heaven, the new heaven still to
come.And God has been watching over it and
preserving it and protecting it, just as a powerful army garrison protects its assigned
responsibilities, from any and all enemies.
At the proper time,
when all of human history has come to its completion, when our current dispensation
ends with the Rapture, after the Tribulation ends with the second advent of
Christ, when the millennium comes to its final end, when the universe in its
entirety is destroyed totally out of existence, when the new universe and heaven
combined are revealed, then our salvation, our permanent life with God, our inheritance,
will become a reality.
And God has been
keeping and preserving our inheritance since eternity past, since before man
was created, since before you were born.God has looked down through time and saw you and me and our pathetic
lives, and because of one commitment and only one commitment, which is faith in
Him, and for that reason only, He has kept, and will continue to keep our
inheritance for each one of us, until it is time to give it to us.
And that time will
occur, with certainty, because it is God who possesses the authority and power
to accomplish it.
No man can match the
work of God.No man can accomplish that
which God can accomplish.
Anyone, who looks to
the world, and its evil filled goals, will never receive anything permanent from
The world and man,
lack true authority, and true power to sustain, or accomplish, or to set his
own path through life.
Only by relying on
God, through doctrine, we can attain infinite success.Otherwise, all that any of us could possibly
have would be nothing.
