2 Peter 3:1-18

3:1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:

3:2 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:

3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

3:17 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.

3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Even the weather is getting freakier; they don't even know if it was a tornado:

Tropical Storm Fred in the Atlantic is gaining strength and expected to be a hurricane soon. There are so many threats coming at us from so many directions and it is a waiting game to see which one will be what changes the world as we think we know it - if their plans get that far. It could be an economic crash, a 'natural' disaster, false flag or the pandemic. Surely they want us to think something dreadful is coming our way. And it has a lot of people uptight and on edge, even the ones pretending not to notice that our world is crumbling.

The truth is something wonderful is coming. To those who believe, nothing matters so much as to what is coming to this world other than the Lord God Almighty Himself. This is all about Jesus.

Many are looking for a major revelation to come in September, and indeed, the temporary powers that be have warned us as such. The deadline for Iran is the end of September, and Israel is defying the Obama adm. with the building of hundreds of settlement homes in the West Bank, the anniversary of 911 is coming, tomorrow is 9/9/9 and it all makes me think of 'harvest time' especially coupled with the unsettling, revealing news of those who say they are Jews and are not, harvesting body parts. When you think it can't get any worse, it does. Never think it can't get worse! It will get worse before it gets better, but better it will get. Thank you Lord for all you do and all that is to come.

We are not to know the day or the hour, and for good reasons that we can and cannot understand, but our Father in Heaven always knows best and that is more than sufficient for me. All is in His hands; everything in the whole world. Take comfort in knowing that everything we are witnessing is just as He foretold.

Our God is the greatest.

Hold fast to your faith in this momentous time we are living. It is and will be difficult, but a most blessed time as well.

Love and peace are coming to reign forever...something far, far better is on the way and He is more than worth the wait and whatever it takes to shake this world apart at the seams for His glory. All for His glory.
