Passage: 2 Peter 2:9-11
Series: 2 Peter (2019)
Duration: 1 hr 14 mins 42 secs
Are you getting too comfortable with the pagan worldview around you? Listen to this lesson to be reminded that God always punishes the ungodly but delivers those who believe in Him. Hear a description of those who are guided by the lusts of their sin natures. See what message and ideas false teachers are bringing. Keep in mind that although we live in the devil’s world we can stand firm and know that God is protecting us.

What happens to a country when its citizens reject God? Listen to this lesson to learn that when a country goes its own independent way with no regard for the laws of divine establishment, the result is chaos, tyranny, and unhappiness. Find out a time in Israel’s history when they followed their own desires and for many years they suffered defeat and misery. When we find ourselves crying out to God for help for our country, remember that we must humble ourselves and trust God to win our battles for us.

Would you like to know the secret to handling problems in life without panicking or falling apart? Listen to this lesson to learn that the answer is to “stand in grace”.
