The Day of the Lord

3Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking.G5026G1208G1992G27G1125G2235G1125G5213G1722G3739G1326G5216G1506G1271G1722G5280 2I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles.G3415G4487G4280G5259G40G4396G2532G1785G2257G652G2962G2532G4990 3First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.G1097G5124G4412G3754G2064G1909G2078G2250G1703G4198G2596G846G2398G1939 4They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation."G2532G3004G4226G2076G1860G846G3952G1063G575G3739G3962G2837G3956G3779G1265G575G746G2937 5But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water.G1063G5124G846G2309G2990G3754G3056G2316G3772G2258G1597G2532G1093G4921G1537G5204G2532G1223G5204 6By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.G1223G3739G2889G5119G2626G5204G622 7By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.G1161G3772G2532G1093G3568G846G3056G1526G2343G5083G4442G1519G2250G2920G2532G684G765G444 8But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.G1161G27G2990G3361G5209G2990G1520G5124G3754G3391G2250G3844G2962G5613G5507G2094G2532G5507G2094G5613G3391G2250 9The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.G2962G1019G3756G1019G1860G5613G5100G2233G1022G235G3114G1519G2248G3361G1014G5100G622G235G3956G5562G1519G3341 10But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.G1161G2250G2962G2240G5613G2812G1722G3571G1722G3739G3772G3928G4500G1161G4747G3089G2741G1093G2532G2532G2041G1722G846G2618 11Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly livesG3767G3956G5130G3089G4217G1163G5209G5225G1722G40G391G2532G2150 12as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat.G4328G2532G4692G3952G2250G2316G1223G3739G3772G4448G3089G2532G4747G5080G2741 13But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.G1161G4328G2596G846G1862G4328G2537G3772G2532G2537G1093G1722G3739G2730G1343 14So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.G1352G27G4328G5023G4704G2147G846G1722G1515G784G2532G298 15Bear in mind that our Lord's patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him.G2532G2233G3115G2257G2962G4991G2531G2257G27G80G3972G2532G2596G4678G1325G846G1125G5213 16He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.G5613G2532G1722G3956G1992G2980G1722G846G4012G5130G1722G3739G2076G5100G1425G3739G261G2532G793G4761G5613G2532G3062G1124G4314G846G2398G684 17Therefore, dear friends, since you already know this, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of lawless men and fall from your secure position.G5210G3767G27G4267G5442G3363G1601G4879G4106G113G1601G2398G4740 18But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.G1161G837G1722G5485G2532G1108G2257G2962G2532G4990G2424G5547G846G1391G2532G3568G2532G1519G165G2250G281
