Storm Clouds Arise

- Sermons - Storms

Preached at the Sunday Morning service on May 22, 2011 by Pastor Ray Bertolet.
Part of the Storms series.

If you every stood on a hill looking into the valley and watched a storm cloud roll in you know that feeling of seeing something and having nothing that you can do to stop it. You can see a funnel cloud and there isn't anything you can do to change things. As we head to 2 Peter we find Peter near the end of his life and there are things that are happen that prompt Peter to write this second letter to those who had previously received his letter.

In 2 Peter we see that apostasy is approaching, the storm is coming. How are we to prepare to meet it? There is only one way, Peter says, and that is through knowledge. Not only through faith in Christ, not only by believing in Him, but also to know Christ. “And this is life eternal,” the Lord Jesus said, “that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” (John 17:3). We are to know Him and not only know about Him. (McGee, J. Vernon (1990). Thru the Bible 1-5 (5 Volume Set) (Kindle Locations 137998-138002). Grupo Nelson. Kindle Edition.)

    Pastor Ray – Harry and I just listened to your message. Again, very soul searching and thought provoking. I think of the Scripture passage that says “Examine yourself and see if your in the faith”. This is a daily walk – keep on being filled with the Spirit – confessing sin and renewing right fellowship with the Lord. Good exhortation! Blessings, H&S

    God wants us to Himself, with no idols before Him. This message helps us to realize how easy it is to become distracted from the things of the Lord in our daily lives.
