2 Peter 3:1-5 (Pt. 3)  Thought/Prayer:  “From Of Old”.  Topics:  2 at end.

“This is now, beloved, the second letter that I have written to you; and in both of them I stir up your sincere mind by reminding you; that you should remember the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and the commandments of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior:  knowing this first, that in the last days mockers will come, walking after their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where is the promise of his coming? For, from the day that the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.’ For this they willfully forget, that there were heavens from of old, and an earth formed out of water and amid water, by the word of God; . . . ”  (WEB)  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

“Heavens from of old.”  Almost every Bible translation listed in one of the Bible-translation sites has “of old” as the descriptor regarding the existence of the heavens.  Guess that means “waaaaaay back.”  Well, actually, from forever, at least after God formed them. 

The thing is, is it not comforting to know that, however far back, God was there?  All of the heavens from old were formed by His Word (And the Word is Jesus Christ); and since Christ came to Earth, we know much of God who is The Word.  Jesus modeled Him to us.  As Jesus tells Phillip (John 14:9, WEB), “He who has seen me has seen the Father.”  Because the Bible tells us about this, we do not need to feel lost in space, just whirling around without meaning.  No, we have the God “from of old,” and He came to Earth to show us Himself, and He is current with us today and is speaking with us still, through the Word that He gave us, the Bible.

We can, then, give comfort to those who do feel lost and that they are perhaps just whirling around in space without meaning.  We can assure them that the God who was of old is still here and living and active today, never sleeping, always mindful of each and every detail of our lives on Earth.  We can tell someone in the midst of great struggle with LIFE issues that they are not alone; that God has always “been,” and that He loves them just as Jesus showed us how God loves.

Lord, thank you for Yourself Who has always been; for Jesus who taught us what You are like; and for the present witness of Christians to those who are hurting and who can benefit from the knowledge of You, Lord, who are the Beginning.  Help us to be faithful to pray for those who do not know that you are waaaay back of old and yet present to help them today.

Topics:  Pray for words – and words in prayer – to call God’s present power of LIFE to those who need Him so.
