There Shall Be Scoffers

Concerning the return of the Lord, Peter reminded us that there shall be scoffers who will challenge the message of the church that the Lord is to return, “knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation'” (2 Peter 3:3-4).
These scoffers might be in the church or out of the church, but either way they will not believe in the Lord’s promise of His return. What motivates them are a couple of things.
First, they will walk according to their own lusts, not the will of God.
Second, their knowledge of history and of the word of God will be seriously deficient. While they will be aware of the Lord’s promise to return, yet, they will not remember biblical history. They will say that nothing has changed since the beginning of creation. However, Peter will show that they have forgotten a major worldwide event of the past that portends the major worldwide event of the future.
Dear friends, this is why you must continue your daily reading and meditation in the word of God. You do not want to make the same mistake as these scoffers.
