2 Peter 3:9 – The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. In this study, we will examine Peter’s explanation for the length of time that has elapsed between the prophesy being made, and the prophesy being fulfilled.
Proverbs 11:7 -When a wicked man dies, his hope perishes; all he expected from his power comes to nothing. Solomon here departs from his norm and emphasizes on the same point rather than use an antithesis to parallel his point. In this study we will look at the relevance of this emphasis, and ponder a little on the Christian hope.
