him him him him to our less safe time and can we've been using our study time here to get a few different books of the Bible and we've gone through Daniel revelation and see various and now are going to take a look at the book of first Peter and first Peter is of course written by the apostle Peter and there is such also we may want probably the second hitter first here considering that a certain continuation some similar themes before we get into your study for this one while we balance her worker father in heaven we send you for the Santa Fe that we can come together and study award we pray for a special blessing as we start the study of a new book the first here that we will have special understanding that you will give us guidance to help us understand the message for the times in which we live now this is my current uses minimum serve how many of you here have made a study of the book of first Peter and also second Peter is so not so much as it's an epistle that we sometimes read through devotional volume it is a very messy as we go through this life there is a lot of need here for us as some demonstrations in the last days if you look at the base theme of the first year and is sometimes helpful to you that we start the study of a book you look at the scene the first him on here starts off with a greeting like most of the data and then in the first ten verses or so he talks about the wonders for salvation that has been given to us starting about from verse thirteen through the end of chapter four is a hall to ensure jobs to live steadfastly in the Christian faith and the examples he uses chapter one we have a we have the trial of our faith sojourn of the wind of your mind and be sober be obedient we are born again incorruptible see chapter two is the example of Jesus shoot was steadfast in his experience here on near Jesus in first Peter chapter to see was the one issue when he was when he suffered he threatened Nottingham reviled reviled not again there was no guile found in his mouth and so we see in the example of Jesus was steadfastly here on this earth chapter three gives us some examples of some counseling husbands and wives talked about being ready always to give an answer in the hope that is in us and chapter four again talked about Harry Christ suffered for us in the flush arm yourselves likewise with the same mind and the idea that's been painted here is what God has given us a great salvation zero here in chapter one we have this great salvation that while we live here on this earth and we may suffer through very severe trial the trial of our faith that Christ suffered for us as well so learn to look to Jesus and arm yourselves with the same mind him out as the hope of salvation that we have in Christ is given us an example of how to live in chapter five he ends with some counsel and exhortation to the elders in the numbers of the Christian church is sort of an overview of the theme of the first few years when we go ahead and get into first gear and I like to volunteer to read verses one through three person in first Peter chapter one a time so there started the introduction to first Peter and Peter is introducing himself here in verse one Cedar is also of Jesus Christ Peter was one of the twelve he was one of the twelve team plans and with Jesus and learn from for three and a half years so here Peter under the direction of the Holy Spirit is going to share with us the word of God and Steve was an apostle to live directly with Jesus so his testimony is of high value now fourth the router model rider seat in the directly with Jesus is not as a mate 's year as more and more important merits all I'm saying is sheer as someone who was an eyewitness to Jesus so it's a frivolous issue study the word of God from someone who was inspired by the Holy Spirit and was an eyewitness to Jesus Christ that makes this a very powerful but the study because of Peter as an apostle of Christ was an eye witness to Jesus Christ for three and a half years he saw the miracles he somehow Jesus lived his life he was the one who denied Jesus he was the one who recounted he is the one to Jesus gave them a chance to redeem himself by saying you love me Peter three times for the same three times that Peter denied and Peter is one with the apostle to the Jewish nation and who eventually was taken around and was crucified upside down so we know that Peter after his conversion to Jesus and when you are converted strengthen your brethren we know Peter was converted so what he says in the successful is a message from a converted man under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit which will give us an understanding of how to live a convert of life here on this Earth such year is an apostle of Jesus Christ to the stranger scattered throughout response installations at the narration Asia and by sending us if you look at the map and what that actually means of Venice Bible commentary you can see the names of all these towns are the one name are probably most familiar with is the way should the word Asian as familiar as well this is what we would call Asia minor or modern-day Turkey would be the region that Peter was addressing so this is the idea that you're all soon went beyond Jerusalem and Judea into other places to minister herself here as we've read Pearson is a wax according to the foreknowledge of God the father through sanctification of the Spirit unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ Grayson a year and peace be multiplied now do you know what the word along what he is yes it means chosen of God so Peter is rioting sugar for people who are you what for the chosen of God and how are the people that he is writing to a wife or chosen of God while the verse says according to the foreknowledge of God the father through sanctification of the Spirit is currently chosen of God through the fourth foreknowledge of God through sanctification Spirit unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ said when God considers us of water chosen as the people who are alike the report shows are going to have an experience of sanctification and immediate so as to say that you are a Christian to say that you are an evil act or the chosen of God and to live apart from Christ in every way in your life or happen the way of your life would not demonstrating the yearly allotted shows God demonstration in a watch is through sanctification of the Spirit is through the spirit and his Holy Spirit to give his heart to be sanctified once you will be now I just cross-referenced the world lacks in Romans chapter theme and this is probably one of the famous passages that uses this word lucky numbers starting in verse thirty one in Romans chapter eight sorry furniture starting in verse thirty one false is what shall we say to these things of God before us who can be against us and he that spared not his own son but delivered him up for us all how shall he not with him also freely give us all things first thirty three shall lay anything to the charge of God the way it is God that justify sonatas and landing into the charge of the optimize to or the lack of the elect those Yorkshire who can money anything to the charge of those in God 's chosen because is God who justifies an artist in Romans says those you are alive have been justified by God in first Peter a Scheer says those that have those you are evil acts are chosen by God when a sanctifying life of obedience through the power the Holy Spirit and an end both Mrs. Paula saying in Romans saving a life for God 's chosen ones if you are saved they are justified in first Peter Peterson via what are God 's chosen ones worse I save the lives of our lives and all so what you see in Romans and first Cedar in the hundred inspiration of the Holy Spirit the writers of the Bible say God the way those that are chosen of God that was you are saying found justification and sanctification the Bible writers do not separate the mountain of God the water justified in sanctification is a fruit of salvation that has nothing to do it the Bible writers say God so why are justified in Anderson I so if we let the Bible ensured for itself it answers the question of the role of justification and sanctification salvation nonselective justified and sanctified and it's all through the power the Holy Spirit and thirteen in a center that even hear the birth of second Thessalonians two thirteen very important for Scott as she was a new from the beginning to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit so once again we see sanctification is part of the salvation process and again it's the work of the Holy Spirit is not our work it's God 's word is so as you can see here is explaining the process of salvation and interesting that the very first thing he describes in the salvation process of sanctification we both apparently the emphasis the Holy Spirit wanted the place in this chapter in this book selections according to the foreknowledge of God the father through sanctification of the Spirit unto the he is sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ of course is the lot of Jesus Christ is what justifies you certainly see the concept of justification in the servers on Justin were justified by his blood is not of her own words it's only through his one that has organizations through faith in his blood we not only receive justification the officer received through the power of the Holy Spirit sanctification and yet a common it could be a question as to what is it looked like in practical terms is not justification and sanctification with ramp these terms and that's a very good point you will see as you go through first theater going to the trial of your faith there is no better way to experience application meant to be tried a fiery trial of faith that is what helps us to grow and race on as Ellen White's health Center location is the work of a lifetime that doesn't mean we never get anything every day we die to the Lord here's how I explain in basic terms is not thank you much time it is it is like a justification sanctification and its most basic term justification by faith America taken our along to subscribe justification by faith we accept Christ's sacrifice in the Army now and if you look at the book of Romans to be justified as a means of the Sunni study that for a meeting series of hemophilia a and a long white actually says in certain works page one hundred John requires the entire surrender the heart before justification can take place so what happens if we see Jesus on the cross like that we are a sinner in need of the grace of Christ we see what he did for us on the cross and we surrender our lives one hundred percent she was a being who is so lovely and so wonderfully or so we surrender to Jesus Christ we read in and in that young side of repentance and surrender we are justified by faith sanctification which is the work of a lifetime is the vacation this manual day by day die to self domains hang our salvation justification experience is there every day is a new day with Christ yesterday we live by faith in today's a new day some also first Corinthians fifteen I die daily and provision is the work of a lifetime because every day we die to self and so that's what it looks like an popular one justifications the moment we never market price for the first time you were justified by faith we keep that experience as we continue to walk in faith through sanctification and both together are part of the salvation experience now continuing on verse three uses Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a livelihood by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead mother son powerful illustrations and powerful points in verse three so we should be known where to give our praise and thanks to receive God surely God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ is the last time we thank him we praise him because according to the London mercy of the father Jesus Christ is then raised again from the dead and because of that we haven't gotten again zero why we have wanted that need to be gotten to know why we hope that you study the phrase there is basically describing meeting the morning so if you can be gotten again that means you are in a new child again are you experiencing everything else basically what policies are Peter Sam's attention from Paul's as anyone am not for Peter is saying and being God we know this is even the Bible John three sixteen got some of the world he gave his only begotten son them in Hebrews we see that Jesus was the first begotten of the dead and the book of Romans we see that we can beat errors with God and joint heirs with Christ does Jesus was resurrected again so Jesus went from being the only begotten to being the first begotten which implies to all those who live by faith are also mean Jan of the father a second or fourth the phenomenon as many as voice so that there is a little bit more to it than this is according to the abundant mercy of God and he has we got nothing you have sent you a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the news is there anywhere else in Scripture that he awaits the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dad with our salvation experience because if you think about this way many Christians when they think about Christ's the end of the salvation experience and that the cross and they don't think about anything else that happens with respect to salvation what crisis this across personal salvation as well as across the top were not here and there's no point in having the best that Peter is talking about salvation with respect to the resurrection from the dead is what you talking about does anyone else talk about Scripture and if you are back to the room and the love that surrounds you Romans four family on time to explain all of Romans for the bottom line is Roman sources driving the faith of Abraham and the faith of Abraham was seeing Sarah were past childbearing age they couldn't have children and goddesses as the stars in the heavens I sure your CV and a rambling will have Eleazar you can be my service he can be the air God does not come from your own bowel movement in Genesis fifteen as a relay advertising the Romans for Abraham the months of the stars and luckily I got is created what was I thinking he can do whatever he wants and and if you look at the language in Romans four starting in verse nineteen for example he was not weak in faith verse twenty he was strong in faith giving glory to God verse twenty one is being fully persuaded that what God promised he was able also to performers twenty two therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness Abraham 's fully persuaded that what God promises I will give your child even though your dad and the the analogy or the allegory is God promised Abraham that even though it was an awesome he would have a new birth and his family and the illustrations arises a weird dead in trespasses and sins it is impossible to live a life that's according to the spirit except as we remember that if we live by faith and believe in the creator Howard God will we will have that new birth experiences with the Abraham did in verse twenty chooses therefore was imputed to him for righteousness but not his first twenty three as now was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him verse twenty four but for us all to seek initial be imputed as if we believe on that reason Jesus our Lord from the dead it was delivered for our offenses and was raised again for our justification now in first year Peter says we have been begotten again sure why we throw through the resurrection of Jesus from the dead and if you study the rest of Scripture like oh yeah righteousness will be imputed to us all so if we believe on him which is the father who raised Jesus from the dead so righteousness was imputed Abraham because he was fully persuaded and righteousness will be imputed to will be imputed to us if we believe on him who raised Jesus from the dead now what's the point what is Paul trying to make if your Romans chapter six and starting in verse three Paul says know ye not that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized and is therefore we are buried with him by baptism and the that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the father even so we also should walk in newness of life for if we've been planted together in the likeness of his death we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection knowing this that our old man is crucified with him the body of sin might be destroyed that henceforth we should not serve sin for he that is dead is freed from sin and the marginal reading for free terms of so far and that is justified so what's Paul Sand and the commencement here saying that we've been begotten to a widely held by the resurrection from the dead dwell in white as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the father even so we also should walk in newness of life who raised Jesus from the dead through the glory of the father can we believe that we believe in the father one of the father to you he raised up Jesus from the dead what will she do you if we believe in him who raised Jesus from the raise us up to walk in newness of life in the same miraculous manner that Jesus was resurrected from the dead and if you believe that righteousness is imputed to the justification and exactly fit without faith it is impossible to please God that he don't believe you have faith enough possible minutes not going to happen today it's interesting numbers three peters as we've even been begotten again unto a lively code is a powerful of the living by the resurrection of Jesus Christ two minutes and because Jesus was raised from the dead we have a being raised to walk in newness of life and Jesus was raised from the dead thing on enrollment services pricing rates from the dead dies no more because death has no more dominion over him when we can raise walk in newness of life sin has no more dominion avarice so the comparison prices regimen that were raised to walk in newness of life and death is no more dominion over Christ sin has no more dominion over the believer and that's the experience of sanctification so you have justification by faith you will be back razor walk in newness of life you have a new birth experience sanctification is the continual why not halfway know if you continue on numbers for describing this experience resources and we been begun in July whenever the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead verse for its human inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that fate is not a way reserved in heaven for you not yet understand the audience that Peter is right C this is the soul is believed to have been written around the same time they look at Hebrews was written around sixty six eighty and the Christian church by this time had gone through tremendous persecution there is a tremendous amount of bloodshed started here the apostle surprising when one of the three to hear him say hey that we have a focus in an inheritance that incorruptible and undefiled and that scene is not away reserved in heaven for you and I had to be a powerful source of encouragement because in listening and imagine moving day-to-day week to week wandering is the persecution and heat up again in a matter of interest in the prison identify the death and hear the apostle Peter say hey you have an incorruptible inheritance reserved in heaven for that to be a tremendous source of encouragement and the believers at that time he makes me wonder sometimes you know how passive and slip them we can be him when we talk about how the Pentagon the incorruptible inheritance that God has reserved for each one of us do we really appreciate what Jesus went through year after his death to make it possible for us to be really appreciate what the early Christian church went through to preserve the faith that we now have the in in the first sympathy is a low-level job in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution make you wonder if there is not persecution nine are we really living the godly life in Christ Jesus that Peter is going to describe this she is going to go through whatever he wants a traveling if anything much more precious than all the parishes with fire might be found in the praise honor and glory at the hearing in Jesus Christ he has on a single mother is not strange the fiery trial that is a try now having said that there maybe some of you here today that are going through some very severe drought that I don't know so I'm not saying they were just all living in decadent lives and not being tried I'm not saying that maybe some of you are silently suffering is more of a self-examination and why just going with the flow every time a testing point some sunlight is a compromise the fittings on you rock that I don't ruffle feathers and at the end of the day got been persecuted because you have nothing to stand for something you should ask yourself alone with God in your quiet time with you today we haven't from seventy in corruptible inheritances undefiled faith not awaits its reserved in heaven for us section this incorruptible inheritance is reserved for the Allies those you are chosen of God lives you have this area is sanctification and to provide incentives about the world means only what that earlier that those who love God will keep his commands they will obey verse five short by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time so now is this URL what are chosen of God chose to experience Santa Fe vacation in obedience atmospheric there was to have an inheritance incorruptible but faith not a Windows reserved in heaven arts happens by the power of God through faith so we understand and that saying says we stayed already in this chapter is the leading and job your rate of Jesus from the dead but he will raise us up to walk in newness of life and when we believe that when we have that faith we artists have by the power of God and what is the power of God we've seen in this chapter John is so powerful that he can raised Jesus from the dead and he argued and only raised Jesus from the dead he's raising others from the these racing now determined that please raised Lazarus from the dead the winner of namesake son from the dead there's others and you know Abraham and Hebrews eleven even though there'd never been a resurrection because God thinking that seed Houston walked out on me so I think God is so powerful he'll does raise my son Isaac from the dead continued promises he always an easy testing my faith for faith is believing in the impossible and so we hear that by the power of God through faith so we believe that God generally I want someone you know this seems impossible we look at our past experience with a hour to my phone was at the record of African singing the following into rebellion is how can God really give me a life of faith to walk in newness of life where I am really done this summer the old man was crucified and Christ lives in me and when we believe in the power of God we surrender allies every day asking him to come into our hearts by saying the power of God work in our lives analysis people she does size by the power of God and the salvation making a mortgage that makes you think of June twenty four juices now and him who is able to see you from falling so we are snapped by the power of God through faith unto salvation some notices this phase believing in this type of power and having the experience of having sat from falling into from the top is through the power of God by the power of God is the experience of salvation that is the experience of salvation through your attempt by the power of God through faith unto salvation is not a smartphone to be revealed ready to be revealed in the last time now Peter wrote this in sixty six A.D. this was four years before the destruction of Jerusalem that he studied Matthew twenty four one energy see how Christ describes the end of the world he ties in the destruction of Jerusalem to see that and see receptor one Paul also says these last times that yet the book is not only written for the Jesus before the distraction and you I also written for God 's people nominee under design and also Peterson hey just before the destruction of Jerusalem got to have a group of people who were kept by the power of God through faith in the salvation and it will be revealed just before Jerusalem is destroyed but under the personal voice for the application was also there that just before Jesus comes the second time there'll be a group of people who will be kept by the power of God through faith and salvation they will be revealed in the last time there will be a group of people who will be capped by the power of God through faith will when everybody else says is impossible to live according to what the Bible says there will be a group of people he said I would by the word of God and were not alone she kept by the power of his word and now were not a Time for today the sister of the introduction is a good skin gets read a couple more verses here before move up three more like the verse six says wherein he greatly rejoice though now for a season if you need me here and having us through manifold temptations so why would Peter say where in the greatly rejoice because we have an incorruptible inheritance reserved in heaven for us and that we are swept by the power of God and the salvation we have the promise of uninterruptible inheritance in heaven we have the promise that we are being kept by the power of God and so therefore we greatly rejoice praise God for what he is providing for us than he is on the system we greatly rejoice though now for the time being though now for a season if need be we are in heaviness through manifold temptations ahead here's a promised that we can really rejoice in the azure on the server in our money time and server seven him Ryland your faith being much more precious than gold the parishes will be tried with fire might be found in the praise and honor and glory is that the appearing of Jesus Christ none of this works Cedar is saying is talking about the shrine health of our faith and how it's more precious than all the parents of the fire and when you think about gold in the fire what happens when you could build on the fire purify wheelman is and what policies are leaders say is the trials of our faith are what sera five is intimately sleeps us in our salvation experience in the power of God keeps us if we hold on to him through faith during these experiences in these experiences make our faith stronger and makes our salvation were sure each time we get through a trial and were kept by the power of God 's word so the trial that were fatal more precious than gold and tried in part because it's Shira fine a group of people to argue what shows God to experience certification for the spirit until the shoe part to believe that as Jesus was raised from the dead so we can be raised up to want someone who are sent by the power of God so that even when we are to assess the even when we are tried we found it here or mingle and it's interesting if you like in first Peter chapter seat is he missing Rachel Malone can a human being go through a common experience first Peter to answer the questions as what Jesus when he suffered he threatened wrong he was reviled reviled not again no guy was found in his mouth and he commanded all the same or so we wanted to as an example of how to live when we have our faith and try to absorb and continue our study is through the diversity we've done the first seven verses on the line in this election will look forward to continue to study is when you want me to close with one of her father in heaven we thank you for this study today may we be found faithful when you're revealed you come in the clouds may we learn to trust in you every step of the way this is my current uses
