One of the tools on the Bible Study Start Page (BSSP) is the King James Bible Online. If I want to put a direct quote in a post this is were it comes from. The KJV is in the public domain so no worries. I like to then link the reference address to another tool like Bible Hub, also on the BSSP, where the verse displays in many translations and commentaries.
Verse of the Day for Friday, March 12, 2021…
“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.”
2 Peter 3:10 (KJV)
“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.” –2 Peter 3:10
Note: If you click on the text of the Verse of the Day you will be transported to a very nice presentation including comments and discussion.
2 Peter 3:10 will Preach! The topic: The Day of the Lord is a good study. “the works that are therein shall be burned up” –our works are as filthy rags (cf. Isaiah 64:6) -works: not of works — we know salvation is by grace through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: lest any man should boast. (cf. Ephesians 2:1-10)
Note: I linked to Biblia by Faithlife this time because it handles a range of verses better. It also displays commentary. You can change translations as well as commentary. Faithlife is the company behind Logos Bible software, used by many in vocational ministry. It is pricey but included in your tuition, at least with a thM degree from DTS. The logos Web App is on the BSSP and you can get some resources free from Faithlife and Logos.
“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” –2 Peter 1:4 (cf. 2 Peter 1:1-21)
partakers of the divine nature: divine nature -A nature is that which makes something what it is, those attributes that define it. For example, the divine nature is marked by divine attributes such as omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence, self-existence, eternity, and so on. To have a divine nature is to possess all the attributes that make God who He is.
By these ye might be partakers: by these -all things that pertain unto life and godliness.
Exceeding great and precious promises: For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Unfortunately it is time to go, there is so much more to unpack here. We have looked, in brief, at 2 Peter 1 and 3 -Wonder what is in chapter 2? false prophets — false teachers — judgment and damnation — dogs and sows, Oh My. Read all about it 2 peter is short and a good read. You might want to study both of Peter’s epistles. You can find study tools; links to sites with commentaries, notes and outlines on the BSSP. Here is a study found on Bible Study Tools.
