Some Things Hard To Be Understood
By-Evangelist Gary Huckaby D.D.
Heavenly father, Please speak to us today through this message. We need Thee Lord. As best as I know how, I yield myself to You. Use these lips to proclaim Your great truths to this people today. Revive the Saved, and Save the lost for Jesus sake. In the name of Christ our Lord. Amen!
Our Text today comes from the book of 2 Peter 3. Please turn with me to this portion of God’s Word and read along with me if you will. I would like to read the whole chapter and please notice verse 16 from which I take the title for this message.
2Pe 3:1-18; "This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen."
There are a great number of things that we all do not understand today. Many have questions that can not, nor will be answered until we are in the presence of the Lord. Questions such as; Why does God allow good people, to suffer bad things in their life? Or, why do wicked men and women seem to get away with their evil deeds? Why doesn’t God do something about people who murder other people?
How can terrorist people kill themselves and thousands of innocent other people and not have to pay for their actions? How can a young man or woman, strap explosives to their bodies and blow themselves up in a crowded place hoping to take the lives of others, and then think that they will be rewarded for their actions? How can a grown man or woman cause pain for a young child or infant, and then just act as if it is ok.to commit such an evil act? How can Doctors take unborn innocent lives from their mothers womb and feel that they have not committed a great sin against God? It is hard for me and I hope many of you to understand why people can not get along with one another? Why a husband wants to take the life of his spouse, or visa, versa/ How can a man exchange the natural God given use of his body to commit an act which is clearly forbidden by God with another man, or a woman with another woman?
