For this week’s Sunday message, I need to bring to your attention some upcoming events that have been predicted with numerous examples throughout the Bible. Although much has been said on video and written about on this blog and a multitude of others, there are books and chapters from the 12 apostles that are lesser known because not enough is being said about them, as if what they left behind weren’t as important as the writings of the others. The first and second books written (or possibly dictated to scribes) by the apostle Peter are two such examples. For this week’s message I will be quoting from 2nd Peter chapter 3, the very last chapter composed by Peter not long before he was martyred for the Faith.

The Apostle Peter’s Warning to the Saints of Jesus Christ

Peter the apostle composed some words of warning concerning life in the Last Days in which we are currently living. This does not mean that I think this will happen in the coming days, or anything like that. There is too much Biblical prophecy that remains unfulfilled to be able to claim impending doom for any of us, so you need not worry about that. One such example can be found in the second book of Peter chapter three. I will begin at verse 3 and end at verse 14. Although there is still more, I encourage each of you to research that on your own, which you can do from this link. But for now, let’s go to the text, which reads as follows:

Study Verses For Your Enrichment

3) Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. 4) They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” 5) But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came
