Escape Decay!

As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble
— 2 Peter 1:3-10
By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature.
— 2 Peter 1:4 AMPC

God’s Word is POWERFUL! There’s enough dynamite in one scripture to blow up every problem sent from hell! Did you know when you read and learn about God, He makes you a shareholder of His divine nature? That’s the purpose of you being here on the earth! God doesn't want you to go through the same problems everyone goes through!  It’s called “being saved” for a reason!

 

Scripturally, upon salvation you were saved from eternal damnation but it did not stop there. The word saved is translated “sozo” in the greek which means… “to save, keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction; to save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e. one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health.” To be saved is to be made whole FULLY; spirit, body and mind! 

 

The promise of verse 4 is contingent on the knowledge of God as stated in the previous verse! You can escape from the corruption, rottenness and decay of this world because you share in the God’s divine nature! The DNA that flows through you is no longer yours, it’s shared with God! No cancer, no addiction, no macular degeneration can live under the potency of God’s blood running through your veins! You are now ONE with Christ Jesus! What isn't allowed to permeate God’s body cannot permeate yours! Hallelujah! 

 

Don’t stop reading the Word! Read another chapter right now! Allow God’s Word to heal your body once and for all, in Jesus name! No more set backs! No more digression!
