2 Peter 1:11
11 For [gar] so [houto] an entrance [eisodos] shall
be ministered [epichoregeo] unto you [humin] abundantly [plousios] into [eis] the everlasting [aionios]
kingdom [basileia] of our [hemon] Lord [kurios] and [kai] Saviour [soter] Jesus [Iesous] Christ [Christos]. KJV-Interlinear
11 for in this way the entrance
into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly
supplied to you. NASB
Peter is addressing
believers in Christ.He is not
addressing unbelievers in this letter.Review verse one of this chapter.
All believers will go
to heaven, regardless of how they live their life here on this earth.Whether good or bad, makes no difference.
Once saved, always saved. There is no one, and nothing, that can take salvation
away from you once you have believed in Christ.
All believers however,
do not live their spiritual lives in the same manner.Many disregard their spiritual life in favor
of their carnal life.Many live some
sort of hybrid spiritual life of their own design.Many oscillate in and out of their spiritual
The book of Revelation,
describes the various attitudes toward ones spiritual life as cold, cool,
lukewarm, and even warm, for the greater portion of believers that do not advance
in their spiritual lives.Only a very
few believers, from throughout all of human history, pursue their spiritual
life with the hot emotion and desire that it calls for.
All believers will
enter into heaven, but for the very few, the mature, their entrance will be
And that is described here
as abundantly supplied.
Heaven will be a
phenomenal place for all who enter, but for those who hear the instructions of the
Bible, there will be greater reward, and abundantly supplied, herein means
more than you could ever expect, and infinitely beyond that which all believers
will expect in heaven.
Just believing in
Christ gives you a phenomenal blessing and saves you from the Lake of Fire.But that is not all there is to
salvation.You are expected to grow up
and to become and behave, as mature adults in your spiritual life.
And not only that, you
are expected to be productive and contributors to your life.Not selfish and lazy burdens on society.
production is your measure of your spiritual life, and is measured by your
legitimate application of spiritual principles in your daily life, and benefits
you as well as anyone around you.
As the Bible has
pointed out, when you advance in your spiritual life you are not useless.When you do not advance in your spiritual
life, you are useless as a human being.
How do you receive an
abundant entrance into heaven?By
advancing in your spiritual life, here in this life.
You will only live here
on this earth for a few decades, then you will die.What then?
Fools will ridicule
this question, even in the face of the fact of their ultimate demise.Fools will chase after philosophies and
beliefs and hobbies and attitudes, which have no semblance in fact.Fools are historical filler and useless.
Do not waste your life
away in a useless mode, but rather pursue you spiritual life and eventually and
with certainty, gain possession of the vast blessings that God has waiting for
you in heaven.
We have just completed
another year in our lives.The year,
2008, will either go down as a year of change in your life or another wasted
year.Make the coming year, everyday of
the coming year, be your best growth year for your spiritual life, yet.
Pursue your daily study
without flinching, no matter what circumstances you might face. The world is
full of enticements, distractions, and doubt, designed to derail your faith.Just stick to your spiritual guns and you
will be a winner in Gods eyes, and all of heaven will celebrate your victories,
even though no one else on this planet will ever know that you exist.
The world does not
matter. Only Gods opinion matters.
From my family to
yours, have a happy New Year, and an even greater spiritual life yet to come.
And now to Him who is
able to keep you from falling, and to present you without blemish, before the
presence of His glory, with exceeding joy, even Jesus Christ of Savior.
Stop worrying about
anything, but in everything through prayer and supplication, let your requests
be made known unto God.Cast all your
cares on Him, for He cares for you.Cast
your burdens upon the Lord for He cares for you.He will sustain you, He will never suffer the
righteous to be moved.And the peace of
God will garrison your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.For of Him, and through Him and to Him are
all things, even Jesus Christ our Lord.To Him be glory and majesty, dominion and power, before time, now and
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.
