Adding to Your Faith: Part 2

Adding to Your Faith: Part 2

7/12/2016


Don't miss the continuation of this critical and timely message, "Adding to Your Faith"

2 Peter 1:2-16 says,

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, THROUGH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having ESCAPED THE CORRUPTION IN THE WORLD THROUGH LUST.

And BESIDE THIS, GIVING ALL DILIGENCE, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that you shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

Wherefore the rather, brethren, GIVE DILIGENCE TO MAKE YOUR CALLING AND ELECTION SURE: for if you do these things, you shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Wherefore I WILL NOT NEGLIGENT TO PUT YOU ALWAYS IN REMEMBRANCE OF THESE THINGS, though you know them, and be established in the present truth. Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ has showed me.

Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to HAVE THESE THINGS ALWAYS IN REMEMBRANCE. For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

Therefore, as the people and ministers of God who are looking for the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, we must be diligent to continue to "add to our faith", making our calling and election sure.
