I'd Like You To Remember The Words
I'd like you to remember the words that the holy prohpets spoke long ago and the command that our Lord and Savior gave through the apostles.
This is the first thing you should know: In the last days, some people will make fun of you, laughing as they do it.
They will follow their own desires, they will ask,"When is Jesus coming back as he promised? Where is he? Since our ancestors died, from the beginning of time, everything continues the same way!"
But they forgot on purpose that the heavens existed long ago and God's word used water to make the land come from water.
It was with water that the old world was destroyed.
Today's heavens and earth have been reserved for fire by the same word of God, kept for the Judgement Day to destroy ungodly people.
Don't forget this one thing; One of the Lord's days is like 1000 years to us, to Him 1000 years is like one day, the Lord is not slow to keep His promise as some people think of slow.
No, He is patient with us, He wants everyone to find room for a change in their hearts.
He doesn't want anyone lost.
The Day of the Lord will come suddenly, like a robber, the heavens will pass away with a whizzing noise, the elements will be destroyed with heat, the earth and every force in it will be gone.
In this way everything will be destroyed, so, what kind of people should you be? you must live holy and godly lives, while you are expecting the Day of God to come.
On that day everything will be destroyed by heat and melt away, then a new heaven and earth will come just as God had promised, righteousness will live there.
Think about this: the delay of the coming of the Lord means more time for people to be saved.
So, dear friends, since you know this guard what you know and don't fall away from the truth.
Grow in the gracious love and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, give Him glory now and forever. Amen.
