Bible Verse Meaning – 2 Peter 3:9-13.

bible verse meaning

In this post, we are going to look at the meaning of the bible verse 2 Peter 3:9-13 which says:

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, 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 which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 

Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 

Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

This bible verse talks about the day of the Lord.

A dreadful day, a frightful day.

In fact, the bible curses those who long for that day; because it will be a day of darkness and not of light. (Amos 5:18).

It’s rather unfortunate that so many people hold the view that the day of the Lord has tarried so much in coming, and as a result of that, we should not expect it again.

But the bible tells us that God is extending that day to give us a chance to repent and be saved.
