  • 2 Pet.1 gave us a spiritual “regimen” for true Godlikeness: 4 By these He has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires. 5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge, 6 …self-control, …endurance, … godliness, 7 …brotherly affection, and …love. 8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they will keep you from being useless or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 The person who lacks these things is blind and shortsighted and has forgotten the cleansing from his past sins. 10 Therefore, brothers, make every effort to confirm your calling and election, because if you do these things you will never stumble. 11 For in this way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly supplied to you.

  • 2 Tim. 2:12 – the “showdown” of attitudes: 11 This saying is trustworthy: For if we have died with Him, we will also live with Him;  Saved 12 if we endure, we will also reign with Him;  Rewarded if we deny Him, He will also deny us;  Tested 13 if we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself. 

    1. 1. Living withTroublemakersLesson Passage: 2 Peter 2:1-3, 12-14; Jude 16-25Background:2 Peter 2:1-22; Jude 1-25
    2. 2. 1. Beware of Deception (2 Pet. 2:1-3,12-13a)2. Beware of Sinful Lifestyles (2 Pet. 2:13b-14; Jude 16-19)1. Be Positive in Response (Jude 20-23)2. Be Dependent on God (Jude 24-25)
    3. 3. Lead-in from 2 Peter 12 Pet. 1 says that God has given (through relationship with Christ) Hisdivine power to help you escape destruction (i.e., be saved):3 His divine power has given us everything required for life andgodliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own gloryand goodness. 4 By these He has given us very great and preciouspromises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature,escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires.Remember, in the parable of the sower, the shallow-rooted plant?Peter lists “add-ons” for believers, to help them really secure theirrelationship in Christ. Once you have faith, add to it: + excellent character + knowledge + self-control + patient endurance + godliness + brotherly love + God’s Love 7 steps to develop Christ’s Life in your life!10 Therefore, brothers, make every effort to confirm your calling andelection, because if you do these things you will never stumble. 11 For inthis way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus
    4. 4. Lead-in from 2 Peter 1, cont’dPeter reminds them of the truth of his testimony, and that they shouldstudy God’s words that He has given – not extraneous “man’s”teachings: Can you imagine being a fireman, sent on a mission“..you do well if you* pay attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dark to rescue trappedplace, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your families…hearts, 20 recognizing this above all, that every prophecy of scripturedoes not come about from one’s own interpretation, 21 for no prophecywas ever produced by the will of man, but men carried along by theHoly Spirit spoke from God.
    5. 5. … but finding you firsthad to work thru thismaze, to reach them?
    6. 6. 1. Beware of Deception (2 Pet. 2:1-3,12-13a)1 But there were also false prophets among the people, as there will befalse teachers among you also, who will bring in destructive heresies,even denying the Master who bought them, thus bringing onthemselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their licentiousways, because of whom the way of truth will be reviled. 3 And ingreediness they will exploit you with false words, whose condemnationfrom long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.… 12 But these persons, like irrational animals born only with naturalinstincts for capture and killing, blaspheming about things they do notunderstand, in their destruction will also be destroyed, 13 being harmedas the wages of unrighteousness. …The OT had false prophets. How did they harm God’s people?Is it possible even for NT believers to be ‘untrue’? (2 Pet. 3:16-18)Demonic doctrines are involved, straight from hell (1 Tim. 4:1, Rev. 2-3)Can people carry Demonic Diseased Doctrines? (Jam. 3:6)We are to become teachers only carefully & accountably (Jam. 3:1)Do false teachers realize they are heretic, or are they blind to this?(Matt. 15:14, Rom. 1:32)
    7. 7. Well, ..versed? (HCSB)2 Peter 3: 16 He speaks about these things in all his letters in which there aresome matters that are hard to understand. The untaught and unstable twistthem to their own destruction, as they also do with the rest of the Scriptures.17 Therefore, dear friends, since you know this in advance, be on your guard,so that you are not led away by the error of lawless people and fall from yourown stability. 18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and SaviorJesus Christ. ..1 Timothy 4:1 (Demonic Influence) 4 Now the Spirit explicitly says that in latertimes some will depart from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and theteachings of demons…James 3: (Controlling the Tongue) 3 Not many should become teachers, mybrothers, knowing that we will receive a stricter judgment,… 6 And the tongueis a fire. The tongue, a world of unrighteousness, is placed among the parts ofour bodies. It pollutes the whole body, sets the course of life on fire, and is seton fire by hell.Matthew 15: 14 “Leave them alone! They are blind guides. And if the blindguide the blind, both will fall into a pit.”Romans 1: 32 Although they know full well God’s just sentence—that thosewho practice such things deserve to die—they not only do them, but evenapplaud others who practice them.
    8. 8. 2. Beware of Sinful Lifestyles (2 Pet. 2:13b-14; Jude 16-19) [Lexham]13… Considering reveling in the daytime a pleasure, they are stains andblemishes, carousing in their deceitful pleasures when they feasttogether with you, 14 having eyes full of desire for an adulteress andunceasing from sin, enticing unstable persons, and having heartstrained for greediness. Accursed children!Rather than being and leading others in the Way of righteousness(dying to self with God’s help, Rom. 8:13), these ‘leaders’ enjoy theirsinning (for a season), and entice others to follow (2 Tim.4:3)Their ‘superiority’ carries a ‘license to sin’, not taking it serious/truthfully– like the Pharisees who lusted on the back end of their lives, neglectingthe real laws of God’s love.Evil men and imposters will be found out (2 Tim. 3:13)Do you see “major” false leaders today, who fit this pattern?Do you see similar stains in local fellowships?What must we watch out for in our own behavior?How are we responsible to God to keep our garments clean? (Jam.1:26-27. See also Eph. 5:3 true purity; 1 Tim. 5:2)
    9. 9. “Well, ..versed?” (HCSB)Romans 8: 13 for if you live according to the flesh, you are going todie. But if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you willlive.2 Timothy 4: 3 For the time will come when they will not tolerate sounddoctrine, but according to their own desires, will multiply teachers forthemselves because they have an itch to hear something new.2 Timothy 3: 13 Evil people and impostors will become worse,deceiving and being deceived.James 1: 26 If anyone thinks he is religious without controlling histongue, then his religion is useless and he deceives himself. 27 Pureand undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look afterorphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained bythe world.Ephesians 5: 3 But sexual immorality and any impurity or greed shouldnot even be heard of among you, as is proper for saints.1 Timothy 5: 2 [treat] older women as mothers, and with all propriety,the younger women as sisters.
    10. 10. 3. Be Positive in Response (Jude 20-23) HCSB20 But you, dear friends, as you build yourselves up in your most holyfaith and pray in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God,expecting the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ for eternal life. 22 Havemercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them from thefire; have mercy on others but with fear, hating even the garment defiledby the flesh.:20 How do we ‘build ourselves up’? (2 Pet.1:4-11, Eph.2:22,1 Pet.2:5)How does praying in the Spirit help us? (Rom.8:26-27;Jn.14:26,16:13)How do we keep ourselves in God’s Love?Love Him (Jn. 14:15, 21) and others (1 Jn. 4:8):21 Look forward to His ultimate mercy (1 Jn. 3:3)The more you “try” to help others, the more you realize you yourselfneed to apply Mercy, the same you have receivedBe on God’s Mercy Mission, to rescue others from eternal Fire!
    11. 11. “Well, ..versed?” (HCSB)Eph. 2:22 You also are being built together for God’s dwelling in the Spirit.1 Peter 2:5 you yourselves, as living stones, are being built into a spiritualhouse for a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to Godthrough Jesus Christ.Romans 8: 26 In the same way the Spirit also joins to help in our weakness,because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit Himselfintercedes for us with unspoken groanings. 27 And He who searches the heartsknows the Spirit’s mind-set, because He intercedes for the saints according tothe will of God.John 14: 26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit—the Father will send Him in Myname—will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.John 16: 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth.For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak whatever He hears. He willalso declare to you what is to come.John 14: (Another Counselor Promised) 15 “If you love Me, you will keep Mycommands... 21 The one who has My commands and keeps them is the onewho loves Me. And the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father. I also willlove him and will reveal Myself to him.”1 Jn.4:8 The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love.1 Jn. 3:3 everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself just as He is pure.
    12. 12. 4. Be Dependent on God (Jude 24-25) Now to the one who is able to protect you from stumbling and make24you to stand before his glory blameless with exultation, 25 to the onlyGod our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty,power, and authority before all time and now and for all eternity. Amen.Consider your calling: 2 Timothy 2: 20 Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver bowls, but also those of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable. 21 So if anyone purifies himself from anything dishonorable, he will be a special instrument, set apart, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work. 2 Tim. 1:12-14 If you are committed to God, and guard the truths in your heart, then He will protect and keep you
