Second Letter by Peter

“Peter’s second letter is similar in content both to Jude’s letter, which warned against false teachers, and to Paul’s discussion of the second coming in his two letters to the Thessalonians.

Peter begins his letter by stressing the importance of true spiritual knowledge.  he warns his readers to beware of those who might pervert the gospel of Christ by teaching a counterfeit doctrine.  Peter concludes by clarifying once again that, although Christ has not reappeared as quickly as some have expected, both his coming and the judgment of man are as certain as God’s Word itself.  The strong implication is that some of his readers ought to be thankful that the Lord has not yet come again, because if he had, they would not have been ready!”
