The End of the World as We Know It (2 Peter 3:8-13)

Jason Roddy, February 2, 2014
Part of the Exposition of 2 Peter series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

* * *
As it is written, the Lord that created the universe will indeed destroy the heavens and earth when He establishes His eternal kingdom.

This prophetic view of the future is a striking revelation and has an affect on the way that every Bible beliving Christian leads their life.

The day of the Lord will come, and according to His promise we are awaiting the new heavens and earth where only righteousness will dwell.

2 Peter 3:8-13

But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

11 Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, 12 waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! 13 But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. (ESV)
