In the last days scoffers will come
It is fitting that Matthew comes first in the New Testament, for two reasons: first, from the opening sentence it has deliberate and direct ties to the Old Testament; second.
A guided tour that helps you understand the important elements of every book in the Bible and how the different pieces of the Bible fit together as a coherent whole.
- Who does the Bible say I am in Christ Jesus?
- If I am being shaped by Christ’s love, how am I living it out?
- Remembering Ananias and Sapphira, what areas of my life am I keeping back from God?
- What changes do I need to make in my life to show I am a child of God?
2 Peter 3:10-13
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.[a]
11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.[b] That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.
