The Christian's Call and Election
2 Peter 1:3-21
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the acknowledging of him that hath called us unto glory and virtue.
4 Whereby most great and precious promises are given unto us, that by them ye should be partakers of the divine nature, in that ye flee the corruption, which is in the world through lust.
5 Therefore give even all diligence thereunto, join moreover virtue with your faith, and with virtue, knowledge;
6 And with knowledge, temperance, and with temperance, patience, and with patience, godliness,
7 And with godliness, brotherly kindness, and with brotherly kindness, love.
8 For if these things be among you, and abound, they will make you that ye neither shall be idle, nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ;
9 For he that hath not these things is blind, and cannot see far off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
10 Wherefore, brethren, give rather diligence to make your calling and election sure; for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall;
11 For by this means an entering shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
12 Wherefore, I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though that ye have knowledge, and be stablished in the present truth.
13 For I think it meet as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance,
14 Seeing I know that the time is at hand that I must lay down this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.
15 I will endeavor therefore always, that ye also may be able to have remembrance of these things after my departing.
16 For we followed not deceivable fables, when we opened unto you the power, and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but with our eyes we saw his majesty;
17 For he received of God the Father honor and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent Glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
18 And this voice we heard when it came from heaven, being with him in the Holy mount.
19 We have also a most sure word of the Prophets, to the which ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.
20 So that ye first know this, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation.
21 For the Prophecy came not in old time by the will of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the holy Ghost.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?

Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
