2 Peter 3:14
14 Wherefore [dio], beloved [agapetos], seeing that ye look for [prosdokao] such things [tauta], be
diligent [spoudazo] that ye may be found [heurisko] of him [autos] in [en] peace [eirene], without
spot [aspilos], and [kai] blameless [amometos]. KJV-Interlinear
14 Therefore, beloved, since you
look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and
A number of passages
reflect the principle which Peter is drawing from here, Eph. 5:27, 1 Cor. 15:58,
Rom. 8:18, 2 Cor. 4:16-18, Phil. 2:15, as well as many of the Parables of
Looking for these
things, the things which we have been mentioning here recently and throughout
all of our studies, simply means that you are now aware of them.
Whether you believe any
of this or not, is irrelevant.
What you choose to
believe or not believe in life impacts only your own individual spiritual
life.Your beliefs have no impact on
truth or reality whatsoever.
Don t believe in the
moon?Well it will rise and fall daily
and monthly, regardless of what you think about it.
Don t believe in the
weather?Do you think that the sunshne
and rain care what you think?Will all
activity in the universe change because of your attitude?
What you believe is
irrelevant as far as truth and reality are concerned. What does matter is that
the Bible teaches truth, and reality does match up perfectly with that truth,
and that you are aware of it.
With that, you can make
up your mind as to whether or not you will believe the Bible and adjust your
life accordingly, or not.
The Bible makes life
and the repercussions of life, very clear.
You were born into this
world, and one day you are going to leave this world.
Your life is human life
which resides in your eternal soul, which are separate and apart from your
One day there is going
to be a resurrection.
One day there is going to
be a judgment before Christ.
The result of that
judgment will determine your entire eternal future.
Those who respond to
truth (the Bible) will be properly rewarded with phenomenal rewards.
Those who reject the Bible
(truth), by default embrace lies, and they will be the recipients of very
little or no reward.
The Bible also makes a
distinction between the finite and the infinite.
The finite is your
temporal life.Your temporal life has
severe limitations, including whatever you might have or are able to do in this
The infinite never ends
and anything related to infinite blessing, far exceeds the limited blessings of
Therefore is you have a
choice to prepare for the infinite.But
if you and instead only focus on the finite, then aren t you missing out on the
whole point of life and your ultimate destiny?
Those who are prepared
spiritually, will receive blessings beyond imagination.Those who do not prepare themselves
spiritually, will not.
Those who look only to
this world, to politics, to social improvements, to standards established by
man, only to the hustle and bustle of life, knowing that God has something far
better prepared for them, will have no excuse when truth finally crashes all
Life as we all know it,
will come to an end one day.There is
going to be a Rapture.There is going to
be a terrible period in history called the Tribulation. There is going to be a
Second Advent.There is going to be a
Millennial reign of Christ.There is
going to be a final judgment.There is
going to be a destruction of everything in this universe. And, there is going to be a brand new universe
created and established as our final and permanent home.
Your life in that new
universe is determined by your decisions today.
And what does God look
for in you?
Peace, spotless, and
Peace is the state of
spiritual maturity, achieved only by your faithful daily study of the Word for God.Your spiritual objective for life.
Spotless is your
spiritual state of residing in fellowship, by means of the confession
principle.This is your moment by moment
Blameless is the result
of your spiritual production which is determined by the application of Biblical
principles to your daily life.
Together these present
a picture of your life, your pattern of life, as decided by your daily, even moment-by-moment
decisions in life, throughout your life.
boasting, being belligerent, argumentative, prove this, prove that, in your
life, rather than seeking out truth by your own effort, only indicates a veil
of indifference being used to hide your otherwise negative attitude toward God.
To those who have a
genuine desire to learn, God reveals all truth.To those who really do not want to learn, God allows the delusion of
their beliefs to rule them.
Your future is before
you, and even though God controls history, and will guide history to His predetermined
conclusion, He will not interfere with your choice as to what side of history
you want to be on.
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.
