The Second Epistle of Peter
Be Alert Bible Verse Truth
How to Be Alert in Chaos
Nice to have you back again to share more Daily Bread together. In
this second letter from Peter, we left off as he was saying that
prophecy wasn't something that was made up in the mind of man, but
holy men of God, spoke things that they were told by the Holy Ghost.
Let's continue now and see what Peter has to say next.
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 didn't 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 didn't 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 aren't afraid to speak
evil of the worthy.
But Angels, which are greater in power and might, don't 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 don't 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).
Be Alert Bible Verse Danger
How to Be Alert Path Quest
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 donkey
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
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

How to Be Alert Today
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 26:11).
Well, let's take a little look at our modern day world and see if
what Peter said was true. Quite recently (in our generation) 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 doesn't describe what Peter is talking about, I don't know what
Be Alert Bible Verse Promise
How to Be Alert Path
Peter goes on to say that God has a special place reserved just for
them, but I promise you, they're not gonna like it. Then he tells us
a very important thing. If you've come to know Jesus Christ, you
change your ways, you see the light, you walk in Truth, you are a
child of God ...
And then if you get tangled up in your previous way of living
once again and permanently renounce your faith ... If you think
things were bad off before you knew the Lord ... Things will be even
worse. Peter says, it would be better if you never learned the Truth,
rather than to learn it and choose to turn your back on it. Again,
the more you know, the more you're responsible for. You shouldn't
view wisdom as a punishment either. This is a privilege.
False teachers are here in this day and age, just as they've been in
every day and age. They're not only the obvious suspects either.
Peter is warning that they're running around using our name
(Christians) as their own, so you may want to be alert. You not only
have to deal with those from outside the Faith, but those that are

How to Be Alert Conclusion
That doesn't mean that you should become paranoid, and treat everyone
as suspicious, but if there's ever anything that raises a red flag in
your mind, it's in your best interest to pray about it, and prove all
things. Remember that Jesus said they will deceive even the elect if
24:24). Peter points out that even though God may be patient in
sending judgment, inevitably, it will come.
Our next study is the last chapter of Peter's second epistle, so be

more together, right here at Daily Bread.
