This is Peter’s last letter and he writes with a sense of urgency, knowing that his time on earth is coming to an end. He’s writing to stir them up in their faith, preparing them for the trials and difficulties he knows will soon be upon them.
Earlier he wrote that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness through His divine power and that He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, in order that by them we might become partakers of the divine nature. In fact, it’s only in partaking of the divine nature that a person is transformed.
Here in chapter 3, he writes prophetically about the condition of the last days, that mockers will come in their mocking, saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? Nothing has changed, everything is as it has been from the beginning.”
But when they maintain this, it escapes their notice, Peter writes, that the earth was formed out of water, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded in the days of Noah. In other words, God has destroyed the world before through a cataclysmic flood in the last days, and the world will be destroyed again, but this time through fire.
What’s interesting is that in Matthew 24, Jesus said, “The coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, they were marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so shall the coming of the Son of Man be.”
When you look at what’s happening in the world today, there is a striking resemblance to the days of Noah. Therefore, Peter’s words are sent by God to stir us up in our faith because difficult days are coming upon the earth and there needs to be a sense of urgency in how we live right now.
