2 Peter (2019)

2 Peter (2019)

May 2019 - May 2021

“Fake News” has become an often-used term since the 2016 election in the USA. In the days of the early church, the problem became fake teachers. Fake teachers taught fake doctrine, fake theology. Fake teaching and fake theology lead to an impotent and phony spiritual life—a pseudo spirituality which has eternal consequences for the individual.

In this short epistle Peter warns of the soon-to-come false teachers in the churches who will lead people astray and will destroy spiritual lives and churches. However, before he developed that theme, he first reminded his readers of the foundation of faith, that they might be forearmed to stand against the Satanic counterfeits that would soon come and then, as now, take captive those believers who were still willingly in bondage to their sin natures. This study will open your eyes to the dangers and deceptions Satan instigates and the only true solution, growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Passage: 2 Peter 2:4-5
Series: 2 Peter (2019)
Duration: 1 hr 15 mins 15 secs
Are you spitting mad at what’s happening today when evil people seem to be getting away with their lies and arrogant deeds? Listen to this message to learn that God is not ignoring this but is actively involved in judging all evil going on in the world. Hear about a time when some fallen angels left Heaven, married women, and had offspring in an attempt to stop God’s plan from sending a Savior to the world. Hear how these angels were cast into deep darkness and are being held for a future time when they will receive their final punishment. Remember, just because we don’t see God’s judgment we can trust God will always handle rightly all things done unjustly.
