NT
1 Peter 1:1-25
nkjv
Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,
To the pilgrims of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,
in sanctification of the Spirit,
ideaexplanation
for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ:
actionpurpose
Grace to you and peace be multiplied.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who according to His abundant mercy
has begotten us again to a living hope
actionmanner
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
to an inheritance
incorruptible
and undefiled
and that does not fade away,
series
reserved in heaven for you,
who are kept by the power of God
through faith for salvation
ready to be revealed
in the last time.
temporal
locative
In this you greatly rejoice,
though now for a little while,
if need be,
you have been grieved by various trials ,
conditional
concessive
that the genuineness of your faith,
being much more precious than gold that perishes,
though it is tested by fire ,
may be found to praise,
honor,
and glory
at the revelation of Jesus Christ,
whom having not seen you love .
Though now you do not see Him,
yet believing,
you rejoice with joy inexpressible
and full of glory,
receiving the end of your faith—
the salvation of your souls.
actionresult
Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully,
who prophesied of the grace that would come to you,
searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ
who was in them was indicating
when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ
and the glories that would follow.
progression
To them it was revealed that,
not to themselves,
but to us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you
through those who have preached the gospel to you
by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—
things which angels desire to look into.
negativepositive
Therefore gird up the loins of your mind,
be sober,
and rest your hope fully upon the grace
that is to be brought to you
at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
as obedient children,
not conforming yourselves to the former lusts,
as in your ignorance ;
comparison
but as He who called you is holy,
you also be holy in all your conduct,
because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”
ground
And if you call on the Father,
who without partiality judges according to each one’s work,
conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear;
knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things,
like silver or gold,
from your aimless conduct
received by tradition from your fathers,
but with the precious blood of Christ,
as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
He indeed was foreordained
before the foundation of the world,
but was manifest in these last times for you
who through Him believe in God,
who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory,
so that your faith and hope are in God.
inference
Since you have purified your souls
in obeying the truth
through the Spirit
in sincere love of the brethren,
love one another fervently
with a pure heart,
having been born again,
not of corruptible seed
but incorruptible,
through the word of God
which lives and abides forever,
because “All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away,
But the word of the Lord endures forever.”
Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.
Peter, under the authority of Christ, writes to see the elect increasing in grace and peace. Grace and peace is multiplied by God through the Gospel of which Peter is just about to write.
What prophesies for example?
Which prophets?
Disobedience results from former lusts
An obedient child is informed and lives in that truth. An obedient child follows and imitates his Father who is holy
He was foreordained but was not manifested at that time. He was manifest in these last times.
Interesting link. Why do we love on another fervently? Because the things seen will perishes but the word of the Lord endures forever.
What salvation? 5a only saved people are kept for the reserved inheritance A salvation revealed in the last time 5c-d Peter speaks about final salvation at the revelation of Jesus Christ 7g. Paul refers this to the redemption of our bodies Rm 8:23
Believing though not seeing Him is loving and rejoicing in Him.
