2Pe 1:2May grace and peace be lavished on you as you grow in the rich knowledge of YHWH and of Yhshwa our Lord!
2Pe 1:3I can pray this because his divine power has bestowed on us everything necessary for life and godliness through the rich knowledge of the one who called us by his own glory and excellence.
2Pe 1:4Through these things he has bestowed on us his precious and most magnificent promises, so that by means of what was promised you may become partakers of the divine nature, after escaping the worldly corruption that is produced by evil desire.
2Pe 1:5For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith excellence, to excellence, knowledge;
- to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness;
2Pe 1:7to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection, unselfish love.
2Pe 1:8For if these things are really yours and are continually increasing, they will keep you from becoming ineffective and unproductive in your pursuit of knowing our Lord Yhshwa more intimately.
- But concerning the one who lacks such things - he is blind. That is to say, he is nearsighted, since he has forgotten about the cleansing of his past sins.
2Pe 1:10Therefore, brothers and sisters, make every effort to be sure of your calling and election. For by doing this you will never stumble into sin.
2Pe 1:11For thus an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Yhshwa will be richly provided for you.
2Pe 1:12Therefore, I intend to remind you constantly of these things even though you know them and are well established in the truth that you now have.
2Pe 1:16For we did not follow cleverly concocted fables when we made known to you the power and return of our Lord Yhshwa; no, we were eyewitnesses of his grandeur.
2Pe 1:17For he received honor and glory from YHWH the Father, when that voice was conveyed to him by the Majestic Glory: "This is my dear Son, in whom I am delighted."
2Pe 1:18When this voice was conveyed from heaven, we ourselves heard it, for we were with him on the holy mountain.
2Pe 1:19Moreover, we possess the prophetic word as an altogether reliable thing. You do well if you pay attention to this as you would to a light shining in a murky place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
2Pe 1:20Above all, you do well if you recognize this: No prophecy of scripture ever comes about by the prophet's own imagination,
2Pe 1:21for no prophecy was ever borne of human impulse; rather, men carried along by the Holy Spirit spoke from YHWH.
(The distinguishing factor in this last sentence is, are modern day imposters now teaching human impulse purporting to the sheeples that their vision is from the Holy Spirit, but is only their own vision, which is false? Wolves prey on the vunerable and attach their agenda to scripture to validate their false claims causing calamity when others follow the hireling false shepherds. Beware.)
