The Promise of the Lord's Coming
2 Peter 3:1-13
1 This second Epistle I now write unto you, beloved, wherewith I stir up, and warn your pure minds,
2 To call to remembrance the words, which were told before of the holy Prophets, and also the commandment of us the Apostles of the Lord and Saviour.
3 This first understand, that there shall come in the last days, mockers, which will walk after their lusts,
4 And say, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers died, all things continue alike from the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly know not, that the heavens were of old, and the earth that was of the water, and by the water, by the word of God.
6 Wherefore the world that then was, perished, overflowed with the water.
7 But the heavens and earth, which are now, are kept by the same word in store, and reserved unto fire against the day of judgment, and of the destruction of ungodly men.
8 Dearly beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise (as some men count slackness) but is patient toward us, and would have no man to perish, but would all men to come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which the heavens shall pass away with a noise, and the elements shall melt with heat, and the earth with the works that are therein, shall be burned up.
11 Seeing therefore that all these things must be dissolved, what manner persons ought ye to be in holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking for, and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, by the which the heavens being on fire, shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with heat?
13 But we look for new heavens, and a new earth, according to his promise, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
