2 Peter 3 - Summary

Outline - Be Mindful

the purpose of the epistle: to keep the believers mindful
scoffers walk after their evil desires, purposefully deceiving themselves that the Lord will be lax about His promise to return
like God created the world, and like He destroyed it with a flood, he will destroy the heavens and earth with fire
the reason that the Lord has not returned yet, is just to give everybody a chance to repent
knowing that the Lord will come, and all the elements will melt with a fervent heat, we really ought to be diligent to walk in holiness
Paul's epistles are part of the Scriptures, even if some of things in them are hard to understand. It is unstable and unlearned people who twist the Scriptures.
instead of being complacent and getting led away, we should be steadfast and grow in the Lord


That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

We should be mindful that the Lord really is going to come back and judge sin and reward righteousness.


Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know [these things] before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

I'll keep the reality of the Lord's promises in mind, while I work for Him.
