BE ALERT BIBLE
VERSE MEANING WITH BE ALERT BIBLE
There were false
prophets among the people then too, just as there will be false teachers
among you, who in secret will bring in wrong teachings, even denying the
Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many
will follow their evil ways; and speak evil of the TRUTH because of them.
And through greed they will make a mockery of you with false words, but
their judgment will be here in no time, and their damnation will not sleep.
If God didnít
spare the angels that sinned (see
The Book of Enoch), but cast them down to
hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to wait until judgment;
and didnít spare the ancient world, but saved
Noah, the eighth person, a
preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the
ungodly; and turning the cities of
Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned
them with an overthrow, making them an example to those that afterward
choose to live ungodly; and delivered just Lot, troubled with the filthy
manner of the wicked: (For that righteous man living among them, in seeing
and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful
deeds;) the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to
reserve the unjust until the day of judgment to be punished: but mainly
those who walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise
government (belittle control). Presumptuous are they (overstepping their
bounds), self-willed, they arenít afraid to speak evil of the worthy.
But angels, which
are greater in power and might, donít bring railing accusations against them
before the Lord. But these, as natural brute beasts (wild animals), made to
be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they donít
understand; and will utterly perish in their own corruption; and will
receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to
riot in the day time (only the wicked find it acceptable to do such evil so
that all can see).

LESSON WITH BE ALERT BIBLE VERSE STUDY EXPLANATION
They are spots and
blemishes, entertaining themselves with their own deceivings while they
share your good things; having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot say no
to sin; dishonest, weak souls: an heart they have trained with covetous
practices; cursed children. They have turned away from the right way, and
have gone astray, following the way of
Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved
the wages of unrighteousness; but was rebuked for his iniquity: the
speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
These are wells
without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of
darkness is reserved for ever. And when they speak great swelling words of
vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness,
those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they
promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of
whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
Because if after
they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in it, and overcome,
the end is worse with them than the beginning (Matthew 12:45,
Hebrews 6:4-6). It would be better for them not to have known the way of
righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy
commandment delivered to them (Luke 12:47).
But it is happened
to them according to the true proverb, The dog returns to his own vomit
again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire (Proverbs
Well, letís take a
little look at our modern day world and see if what Peter said was true.
Quite recently in the news, there is a man who is a polygamist (where a
spouse may possess a plurality of mates at the same time), who has quite a
large following in different places in the United States, and his followers
are compelled (by him) to give him all their money. Some of the women
followers and daughters of the followers are sold to other men in the group.
If you disagree with any of his practices or principles, you are made to
feel like you are dishonoring God. If that doesnít describe what Peter is
talking about, I donít know what does. (If indeed these are the true facts.
How many times are the things reported on the news embellished and twisted
for the sake of media hype?)
