Size up the Scoffers of the Second Coming


Victorious Living in a Dangerous Disappearing World // 2 Peter 3:1-9





By Dr. Jerry Rueb

For followers of Jesus, living in this present world is like a sailing a tiny boat to Paradise through troubled seas.  Hurricane force winds of false teachers and their false doctrines threaten to blow you off course.  Strong undercurrents of godless culture surround you tempting to pull you under the angry tide. In the middle of your messy voyage you receive a letter from the apostle Peter who is a veteran at spiritual survival. The brave old fisher of men reminds you that your journey is preplanned by God to be filled with adventure and holy purpose that will build your character.  He warns you of the dangerous people you will encounter and he gives advance insight into the coming disastrous end of this present world. Then he fills his letter with hope and victory when he tells you that God has already guaranteed your safe arrival in heaven. The book of 2 Peter is truly a wayfarer’s map to Victorious Living in a Dangerous Disappearing World!  Bon voyage!
