2 Peter 1:13
13 Yea [de], I think it [hegeomai] meet [dikaios], as long as [epi][hosos] I am [eimi] in [en] this [touto] tabernacle [skenoma], to
stir [diegeiro] you [humas] up [diegeiro] by [en] putting you in remembrance [hupomnesis]; KJV-Interlinear
13 And I consider it right, as
long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder,NASB
Your earthly dwelling,
is your physical body.Your physical
body is the flesh, bone, and blood, etc., that makes up your present carnal
Your physical body is
biological in nature, and is separate and apart from your real life your human
life, which resides in your soul.
As a believer in Christ
you are trichotomous.You consist of three vessels, and three lives,
each one housed in one for the three vessels.You are body in which resides biological life, and you are soul in which
resides human life, and finally you possess a human spirit in which resides
Of these three, only
the last two (soul and spirit) combined with their respective lives, are
permanent.Your physical body, with its
biological life), is temporary and designed for life on this earth only.
At some point in the
future, whether tomorrow or decades from now, God will pull you out of your
physical body, and whisk you off (soul and spirit), to heaven.
At an appointed time,
in our case, that time will be the Rapture, which ends this dispensation, you
will be reunited with a permanent body, which we call a resurrection body.It will be neither biological nor temporary,
but permanent and indestructible.
With no more aches and
pains, no more weaknesses or even ugliness's, you ll look pretty good in your
But for the time being,
we all have to live our lives in these physical bodies, together with all of
the frailties and defects that they come with.
And while in these
bodies, as Peter says here, we need to be reminded over and over again, of the
truth of life and of the dangers of our ignoring truth.
Your Bible study is not
a one time learning exercise and then you are done, but a daily study and a
repetitive reminder of God, of Christ, of doctrine, of your spiritual life, of
the expectations from God, and of your responsibilities in life.
In growing up, you will
never, in this life, attain complete growth to some predetermined ending
point.Growth is ongoing for this life,
and I would imagine that in eternity, there will be so much more to learn, that
we will never know it all, in any subject you can think of, and in the subjects
that no one has ever imagined yet.
Your daily study is
intended to help you learn and grow up in life, but most of your studies
constitute reminders of what you already know, and serve as reinforcements of
your spiritual life.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
