2Pe 1:12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.
2Pe 1:13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
I know many times I say a lot of the same thing, but as this portion of the bible reads, it is the duty, the call, of a minister to bring to your remembrance, things you already know, in repeating's, we learn, and we get them settled deeper and deeper in our hearts. I would be in neglect if I did not do so.
Many want something new, different, wild, a deep revelation, a dream, even if it's not from God, and this is why I remind, so people do not look to the false and stay the coarse with the real, and so this post is to once again to put you in remembrance about things many know, but it must be repeated.
2Pe 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2Pe 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
2Pe 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
2Pe 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
2Pe 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
2Pe 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
2Pe 2:7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
2Pe 2:8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
2Pe 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
2Pe 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
2Pe 2:11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
2Pe 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
Notice Peter is using what I always say dual events as dual prophecies or judgment on the false prophets. vrs 4-6 all past judgments on the wicked, the lord changes not and his judgments do not change. In this portion of the bible we read many truth concerning false prophets, and a lot of info coming their way, now and more soon. America is like Sodom and Gomorrah. I have said that, it needs to be said again, with bible proof that the lords Punishments and Judgments will, are, the same as Peter is pointing out in this Ch 2.
Vrs 5 and 7 show the believer in the midst of all this the lords wrath is not on his people, he is not putting his true people under judgment, and so it is a sober warning spiced with promise, We are not the ones that are appointed unto wrath. If you make your calling and election sure.
Notice what these false Christians were doing, they were speaking evil of things they understand not, think of that, someone speaks evil of you, your to radical, your a Jesus freak, a bible thumb-er, an insane person that believes in an old book, out of touch with the relevant message, and so on, these are so called Christians speaking evil of the very thing they know nothing about.
I do not know about you, but I know whom I have believed in, I am not ashamed of the gospel, or my lord, I love the bible, I pray in a funny language sometimes to those that may hear it, and they speak evil of something they have no idea about, it is a heavenly language of angels so be careful what you say. Paul said I speak in the tongues of men and of angles, so angles is not an earthly language as was displayed in acts 2, this is 100% different, not a human language a heavenly prayer language.
False Churches are the biggest reason our nation is going down, they said nothing, did nothing, blind leaders of the blind, the church and it's false prophets, the lord keeps telling me are under serious judgment and it will increase, soon all the millions they are used to making will be reduced to nothing and they will be exposed.
It is the true believers job to expose the fruitless deeds and doctrines of darkness. Have you done any exposing, or in timidity do you remain silent, if so you are as guilty as the apostate anything goes Church. It is our duty, our call, to expose, and in love rebuke, correct, exhort with all authority, have you done that, or have you been silent.
This new silence of the remnant, says, 'well we all believe different, I do not want to make waves', look your called to stand up, and out for Jesus, you are called to speak against folly and false doctrines, you are called to stir up the waters and turn this dark world upside down, so this week, rock the boat, swim against the tide, if a salmon knows to do this, why do the remnant Christians not do the same
