You made a claim, "No show."
And so does the bible HERE>>>. “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.”2Peter 3:4
that^^^^^^^ sounds like a no show to me sunshine.
Repeat, repeat, repeat, without justification.
The bible at 2Peter 3:4 justified my question and my claim. You are on the ropes sunshine and have proven nothing.
Please note, reader, Stephen has not answered one of my questions yet again.
No, it does not. Peter is speaking to the elect about the mockers and scoffers. He explains,
"9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not willing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance."
The "you" refers to the elect. To the elect Peter says,
13 But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells...since you look for these things, be diligent to be found spotless and blameless by Him, at peace, 15 and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation."
Again, the elect are looking for these things, a new heaven and new earth. The scoffers keep scoffing.
The Lord's patience is towards the elect, not the mockers. As for the mockers, Peter says,
in which there are some things that are hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction... be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of [e]unscrupulous people."
Take note of the underlined, Stephen.
Remember in Peter's first letter to these people he said,
7 The end of all things [f]is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of [g]prayer. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin [m]with the household of God; and if it begins [n]with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
Because Peter warned them the end of all things was NEAR when it did not come as quickly as expected, some scoffers mockers the second coming. That is the gist of the context of 2 Peter 3.
"... this is now the second letter I am writing to you in which I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of a reminder, 2 to remember the words spoken beforehand by the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior spoken by your apostles."
The reminder was the day of the Lord was close, and it would come like a thief in the night when the ungodly were not expecting it.
oldest propaganda trick going
You must have missed this princess>
Please stop using derogatory names when you address me.
Peter, not to mention those that took him to task admitted that the Christ hadn't return and this is the reason he was forced to move the goal posts from " a generation " to a thousand years!<<<<< this is the "oldest propaganda trick" that has been peddled for TWO THOUSAND YEARS!!!!
Where do you see the goalposts moving? Where is the word generation mentioned? A generation has a particular meaning in Scripture.
In accordance with the number of days that you spied out the land, forty days, for every day you shall suffer the punishment for your guilt a year, that is, forty years, and you will know My opposition.
7 Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says,
“Today if you hear His voice,
8 Do not harden your hearts as [d]when they provoked Me,
As on the day of trial in the wilderness,
9 Where your fathers put Me to the test,
And saw My works for forty years.
10 Therefore I was angry with this generation,
And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart,
And they did not know My ways’;
11 As I swore in My anger,
‘They certainly shall not enter My rest.’”
Just as with the first exodus, so with the second. God judged that wilderness generation for their sins of unbelief, just as there was danger of with this, another generation who were about to enter the new promised land.
Here are some of the parallels:
Moses leads his people out of the land of bondage in Egypt.
Jesus leads His people out of the land of sin and spiritual bondage.
Moses provides manna from heaven for the people to eat.
Jesus is the bread of heaven and provides the food for us to eat, His word of salvation.
Moses is told to construct the tabernacle and its items according to a pattern.
That pattern is Jesus Christ. He comes to tabernacle with His people.
A sacrifice of atonement is made for the people every year.
Jesus makes a one-time sacrifice that is sufficient for all time.
Moses strikes a rock in the wilderness, and water flowed out of it.
Jesus is the rock that provides water of everlasting life to His people. He tells the crowd He is the water of life.
Moses, at Sinai, receives the Ten Commandments. The people make a covenant with God there, agreeing to do all that the LORD commanded in exchange for Him being their God and they being His people.
Jesus, at Golgotha, Calvery. He made a covenant with His people.
Moses leads the people to the Promised Land but he cannot enter.
Jesus takes His people into the Promised Land.
There are numerous parallels not mentioned.
The "thousand years like one day" is figurative language. Therefore, it is not to be taken literally. The expression is used to denote that to God time is of no consequence. He is patient, not willing that any of the elect should perish.
8 But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. 9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not willing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance.
A New Heaven and Earth
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and [c]its works will be [d]discovered.
11 Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! 13 But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.
Obviously, Peter is speaking to the elect of Israel "scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, who are chosen 2 according to the foreknowledge of God the Father...
" How do we know this? The fathers
are mentioned and prophets
were sent to Israel, not the Gentiles.
And I see that you are still no closer to starting your own thread .
Nope, I am here to show others your "no show" is a misunderstanding on your part. You never supplied the rest of the context or how it related to other passages of Scripture.
