2 Peter 1
If you are a believer in Jesus, you have as the Apostle Peter says in 2 Peter 1:3, “everything necessary for life and godliness.” This week Chris takes us to 2 Peter 1:3-4. There is a lot of invaluable truth in those two verses.
We will learn that as believers we have a unique connection to God through the Holy Spirit. That it is because of Him that we have a connection with the Father and Jesus. When we become believers in Jesus we weren’t simply left to survive on our own. We were filled with the Holy Spirit the moment we were saved.
This truth should give us comfort and boldness as we live day-to-day in this world, warring against our own flesh and the trials of this world. The Holy Spirit is our advocate, our guide, and our help. God did not leave us here to fend for ourselves and for that we have much to be thankful for.
II Peter: Standing Fast in the Last Days
by Elwood McQuaid
The book of Second Peter tells us virtually everything we need to know to be equipped to function in these uncertain days. Elwood McQuaid takes us on a journey through the book of Second Peter where we learn to identify and expose false teachers, their character, methods, and the carnage they create. It also explains why the Lord has tarried His Second Coming. Don’t miss this excellent commentary loved by many.
2 Peter 1, Continued
Chris continues in 2 Peter 1 and breaks down even more what being partakers of the divine nature (2 Peter 1:4) means in believer’s day-to-day life. We’ll learn that the whole purpose of 2 Peter 1:3-8 is that we might live out the divine nature God has given to us by the ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives so that we may be both effective and productive in knowing Jesus Christ more.
Apples of Gold
Zvi began working in a Jerusalem hospital and soon after starting, he ran into a man who was not well. God began to make it very clear why Zvi was there with this man, also a Polish Jewish man, at this time. The man’s life-story was filled with wrong decisions and consequences but as you will hear, made the saving grace of the gospel even sweeter.
Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.
More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.
The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
