2 Peter 3:1-9  "Where Is He?"

After stressing the point of being watchful of false teachers in chapter 2, now Peter turns to the return of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  The persecuted church always has found comfort in the fact that someday Christ will return for the church and evil people will then face the horrors of the tribulation and then judgment by God.  Peter says very clearly that the process told of such a day and Christ did also.  So when someone tries to put doubts in our minds remember what God has said.  He also reminds them, remember what God has done by His creating this world and also at the time by His hand of destruction.  So remember He will come back and destroy this present earth and heaven.  To us today, do not let the world get to you because someday Jesus will come for His church.
