2 PETER (#6)
There's a Great Day Coming
by Bob Young
Text: 2 Pet. 3:7-11

Throughout 2 Peter, throughout the Bible, we have repeated promises of the coming of Jesus. The OT and NT are filled with such promises--1845 OT references, 17 OT books give prominence to this theme, 318 NT references, 1/30 of all NT verses. In the New Testament, 23 of the 27 books focus on this great truth in one way of another.
God has been telling us of the second coming of Jesus for at least 2000 years, and even longer through the OT prophets. Jesus Christ told us of his coming before he left this earth.

Peter makes clear…

Many choose to deliberately ignore this great truth, but it is to be remembered, an event to avoid. A destiny to anticipate. In this chapter we read about (1) Denial, 3-5; (2) Destruction, 5-7; (3) Delay, 8-9; (4) Destiny, 10-12; and (5) Diligence, 11-18. We will organize these five themes under two headings and a conclusion.

I. Jesus is coming.

II. A Day of Judgment is coming.
A day of judgment is certain (Eccl. 12:13,14; Heb. 9:27; Acts 10:42; 17:31). It will be a great day for those who are prepared. It will be a day of destruction for those who are not prepared.

A Description of That Day
When that day comes, we will be part of the greatest crowd ever assembled.

Give diligence therefore, 11-18
