Scoffers and The Coming Judgment | 2 Peter 3:1-7
Peter’s message is straightforward despite scoffers scoffing at Christ’s coming again. God’s word promises that He will come again in judgment of the whole world. Throughout these verses, notice that Peter’s emphasis is entirely on God’s Word. He mentions it in verse 2 as the authoritative message that we must remember. He refers to it again in verses 5 and 6 as the means by which he created the world and brought the judgment of the flood upon the wicked; he refers to it again in verse 7 as the basis to which we know that there is a terrifying day of judgment to come.
