2 Peter 3:9 (TNIV) “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
The promise of the Blessed Hope of Christ’s return shall come to pass when God has played His hand fully. Scripture is clear; He doesn’t want anyone to go to hell for all eternity. That flies in the face of the Calvinist doctrine of ‘predestination’ where some are born to go to heaven and some to hell and there is nothing they can do to alter their predestined fate, as it were. This is no time for impatience. Believers need not be concerned about their eternal destination if they are being faithful to their calling to follow Christ. It is those who are playing with the fine points of salvation, who like to go right up to the edge of the ledge that should be concerned, very concerned.
God doesn’t make promises that He intends to break. His word is His bond; He is faithful and true … now and always. Above all else God can be trusted and relied upon to fulfill His plan for us all. Have you read His word today? Neither have I just yet, but we both need to. Look for His promises and know that they will KEEP those promises. It happens in His time.
2 Peter 3:8 (TNIV) “… do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.”
WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!!
