Some Thoughts From Peter, John, And Jude

text size A A A

2 Peter 2:1-17

But there were also false prophets (Unbelievers) among the People, even as there will be false teachers (Unbelievers) among YOU (Believers), who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying The Lord (Jesus Christ) who bought them (Unbelievers), and bring on themselves (Unbelievers) swift Destruction. And many will follow their (Unbelievers) destructive ways, because of whom (Unbelievers) The Way of Truth (The Gospel of Jesus Christ) will be blasphemed. By covetousness they (Unbelievers) will exploit YOU (Believers) with deceptive words; for a long time their (Unbelievers) Judgment has NOT been idle, and their (Unbelievers) Destruction does NOT slumber.

For if God (God Almighty) did NOT spare the angels who sinned, but Cast them (the angels who sinned) down to Hell and Delivered them (the angels who sinned) into Chains of Darkness, to be Reserved for Judgment; and did NOT spare The Ancient World, but Saved Noah, One of Eight People, a Preacher of Righteousness, bringing in The Flood on the World of the ungodly (Unbelievers); and turning The Cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, Condemned them (Sodom and Gomorrah) to Destruction, making them (Sodom and Gomorrah) an example to those (Unbelievers) who afterward would live ungodly; and Delivered Righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked (for that Righteous Man, dwelling among them, tormented His Righteous Soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds), then The Lord (God Almighty) knows how to Deliver The Godly (Believers) out of temptations and to Reserve the unjust (Unbelievers) under Punishment for The Day of Judgment, and especially those (Unbelievers) who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They (Unbelievers) are presumptuous, self-willed. They (Unbelievers) are NOT afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, whereas Angels, who are Greater in Power and Might, do NOT bring a reviling accusation against them before The Lord (God Almighty).

But these (Unbelievers), like natural brute beasts made to be Caught and Destroyed, speak evil of The Things they (Unbelievers) do NOT understand, and will utterly perish in their (Unbelievers) own corruption, and will Receive The Wages of Unrighteousness, as those (Unbelievers) who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime. They (Unbelievers) are spots and blemishes, carousing in their (Unbelievers) own deceptions while they (Unbelievers) feast with YOU (Believers), having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin, enticing Unstable Souls. They (Unbelievers) have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children. They (Unbelievers) have Forsaken The Right Way (The Gospel of Jesus Christ) and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; but he was rebuked for his iniquity: a dumb donkey speaking with a man’s voice restrained the madness of the prophet. These (Unbelievers) are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is Reserved The Blackness of Darkness Forever.

1 John 4:1-6

Beloved, do NOT believe every spirit, but Test The Spirits, whether they are of God (God Almighty); because many false prophets (Unbelievers) have gone out into the World. By this YOU (Believers) KNOW The Spirit (The Holy Spirit) of God (God Almighty): Every Spirit that Confesses that Jesus Christ has Come in The Flesh is of God (God Almighty), and every spirit (Unbelievers) that does NOT Confess that Jesus Christ has Come in The Flesh is NOT of God (God Almighty). And this is The Spirit of The Antichrist, which YOU (Believers) have heard was coming, and is now already in the World. YOU (Believers) are of God (God Almighty), Little Children, and have overcome them (Unbelievers), because He (Jesus Christ) who is in YOU (Believers) is Greater Than he (the devil) who is in the World. They (Unbelievers) are of the World. Therefore they (Unbelievers) speak as of the World, and the World hears them (Unbelievers). We (Believers) are of God (God Almighty). He (Believers) who KNOWS God (God Almighty) HEARS Us (Believers); he (Unbelievers) who is NOT of God (God Almighty) does NOT hear Us (Believers). By this We (Believers) KNOW The Spirit of Truth (Believers) and the spirit of error (Unbelievers).

Jude 1:3-19

Beloved, while I (Jude) was very diligent to write to YOU (Believers) concerning Our Common Salvation, I (Jude) found it necessary to write to YOU (Believers) exhorting YOU (Believers) to Contend Earnestly for The Faith (The Gospel of Jesus Christ) which was Once for All Delivered to The Saints (Believers). For certain men (Unbelievers) have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men (Unbelievers), who turn The Grace of Our God (God Almighty) into lewdness and deny The ONLY Lord God (God Almighty) and Our Lord Jesus Christ.

But I (Jude) want to remind YOU (Believers), though YOU (Believers) once knew this, that The Lord (God Almighty), having Saved The People Out of The Land of Egypt, afterward Destroyed those (Unbelievers) who did NOT believe. And the angels who did NOT keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He (God Almighty) has Reserved in Everlasting Chains Under Darkness for The Judgment of The Great Day; as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the Cities around them (Sodom and Gomorrah) in a similar manner to these (Unbelievers), having given themselves (Unbelievers) over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an Example, suffering The Vengeance of Eternal Fire.

Likewise also these dreamers (Unbelievers) defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries. Yet Michael The Archangel, in contending with the devil, when he (the devil) disputed about The Body of Moses, dared NOT bring against him (the devil) a Reviling Accusation, but said, “The Lord (God Almighty) Rebuke you (the devil)!” But these (Unbelievers) speak evil of whatever they (Unbelievers) do NOT know; and whatever they (Unbelievers) know naturally, like brute beasts, in These Things they (Unbelievers) corrupt themselves (Unbelievers). Woe to them (Unbelievers)! For they (Unbelievers) have gone in The Way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.

These (Unbelievers) are spots in Your (Believers) Love Feasts, while they (Unbelievers) feast with YOU (Believers) without fear, serving only themselves (Unbelievers). They (Unbelievers) are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming up their (Unbelievers) own shame; wandering stars for whom is Reserved The Blackness of Darkness Forever.

Now Enoch, The Seventh from Adam, Prophesied about these men (Unbelievers) also, saying, “Behold, The Lord (Jesus Christ) Comes with Ten Thousands of His (Jesus Christ’s) Saints (Believers), to Execute Judgment on All (Unbelievers), to Convict All (Unbelievers) who are ungodly among them (Unbelievers) of all their (Unbelievers) ungodly deeds which they (Unbelievers) have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners (Unbelievers) have spoken against Him (Jesus Christ).”

These (Unbelievers) are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their (Unbelievers) own lusts; and they (Unbelievers) mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. But YOU (Believers), Beloved, Remember The Words (The Holy Bible) which were Spoken before by The Apostles of Our Lord Jesus Christ: how They (Jesus’ Disciples) told YOU (Believers) that there would be mockers (Unbelievers) in The Last Time who would walk according to their (Unbelievers) own ungodly lusts. These (Unbelievers) are sensual persons, who cause divisions, NOT having The Spirit (The Holy Spirit).

Fellow Believers, does this sound like the World We (Believers) live in Today? Well, I have news for YOU (Believers), it is NOT going to get any better, in fact, it’s going to get much worse. My prayer for each of YOU (Believers), is that YOU (Believers) have Put On The Full Armor Of God Almighty, keep Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as close to YOU (Believers) as YOU (Believers) possibly can, because from here on out, it’s a Battle to Save Souls. Are YOU (Believers) up to The Challenge?
