How is Peter stirring up their sincere mind
By way of reminder
What should they know first of all
That scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing
What are the scoffers following
Their own sinful desires
What will the scoffers say
Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fatheres fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation
What do they deliberately overlook
That the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the Word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished.
What are we not to overlook
That with the LORD one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day.
What is the LORD not slow to as some count slowness
He is not slow in fulfilling his promise
How will the day of the LORD come
Like a theif in the night
What will happen when the day of the LORD comes
The heavens will pass away with a roar, the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.
What sort of people ought we to be according to 2 Peter 3:11
We should live holy and godly lives, waiting and hastening the day of God.
What are we waiting for according to his promise
New heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
Since we are waiting for these things what should we do
Be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish and at peace and coun the patience of our LORD as salvation
About what should we take care
That we are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose our own stability
What are we to grow in
The Grace and Knowledge (Gnosis) of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.
