~ Mockers shall come in the last Yomim with mocking, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “ Where is the promise of His coming?
For since the father’s fell asleep, all continues as from the beginning of creation.” For they choose to have this hidden from them: that the shamayim were of old, and THE ARETS (Earth) STANDING OUT OF WATER AND IN THE WATER, by the Word of Alahim, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water.
And the present shamayim and the arets are treasured up by the same Word, being kept for fire, to a yom (day) of judgement and destruction of wicked men.
But, beloved ones, let not this one thing be hidden from you: that with YAHUAH one yom (day) is as 1,000 years, and 1,000 years as one yom.
YAHUAH IS NOT SLOW in regard to the PROMISE, AS SOME count slowness, but is patient toward us, NOT wishing that any should perish but that all should come to REPENTANCE.
But the yom of YAHUAH shall come as a thief in the lailah (night), in which the shamayim shall pass away with GREAT NOISE, and the elements shall melt with intense heat, and the arets and the works that are in it shall be burned up. Seeing all these are to be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be in set-apart behavior and reverence, looking for and hastening the COMING of the YOM of Alahim, thought which the shamayim shall be destroyed, being set on FIRE 🔥, and the elements melt with intense heat!
But according to His promise we wait for a renewed shamayim and a renewed arets, in which uprightness dwells. So then, looking forward to this, DO YOUR UTMOST TO BE FOUND by Him in PEACE, SPOTLESS, and BLAMELESS....
2 Kefa (Peter) 3:3-14
....concerning these matters, in which those who are untaught and unstable TWIST to their own destruction, as do also the other Scriptures.
