Today’s scripture: 2 Peter 3:3-7
I’ve probably written this before, but anyone who reads the Bible—really reads
it—cannot deny its truth. Prophecy upon prophecy fulfilled. Prophecy upon
prophecy to be fulfilled. Both Peter and Paul prophesied how it would be in the
In these verses, Peter predicted that many will mock the God of Christianity by
saying, “You say Jesus is coming again. They’ve been saying that for
generations, and nothing.” And isn’t true? Mockers right and left. The earth
just “happened.” There is no truth, no morality.
“It escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago
…” God created heavens and earth. He created the first man and woman and gave
them the choice to follow Him. When they chose their own way, mankind separated
from its Creator. God had a plan to reconcile with His created. First through
sacrifice of a spotless lamb; then through the sacrifice of the Lamb of God.
Isaiah prophesied Christ’s first coming. And it happened. Paul and John
prophesied of His second coming. It will happen.
Let the mockers say what they will. The Bible is truth. Christ will return. So
what should we who do know truth do? Take every opportunity to tell others
exactly what the Bible says—about the past and what has happened, and about the
future and what will happen.
