2 Peter

What does it look like to live in a world that is not our home? What does it mean to suffer well? How do we fix our hope now on the future return of Jesus? How do we live prepared to give a reason for the hope that is within us? In the epistles we now know as 1 & 2 Peter, the apostle Peter writes to the elect exiles in the first century who were facing difficult persecution and severe suffering. He calls the believers then and now to look to Jesus, the one who endured suffering before us, who has promised to return, and who alone is our living hope!

2 Peter 2:17-22 Take Care! There Will Be False Teachers Among You Part 2

October 9, 2022 Message by Paul Mermilliod 2 Peter 2:17-22 [17] These are waterless springs and mists driven by a storm. For them the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved. [18] For, speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely escaping from those who live in error. [19] They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved. [20]…

Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction…

[4] And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. [5] And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make…
