Thanksgiving: I Thank The Lord for Patience, For we know the Day of the Lord shall be upon us like a thief in the night! I Thank The Lord for Perseverance, For we continue with the Faith though we are mocked by the World! I Thank The Lord for His Word, For this world shall pass away and we the faithful shall be rewarded!
It is Written, “Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking. I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles. Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. But 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. 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. 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.” 2 Peter 3:1-10
Prayer: Father, I pray that we as your Sons and Daughters of the Most High God continue on the good fight of Salvation through these changing times! For we who were the many are now becoming the few. For what men kept in darkness is now be heralded as the new light. I pray that we kept Christ alive as we are condemned for honoring your Word in Jesus Name, Amen!
