    Php 3:20 Heb 9:28

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:14

    Por lo cual, oh amados, estando en esperanza de estas cosas, procurad con diligencia que seis hallados de l sin mcula, y sin reprensin, en paz.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Peter 3:14

    Verse 14. Seeing that ye look for such things] As ye profess that such a
    state of things shall take place, and have the expectation of enjoying the blessedness of it, be diligent in the use of every means and influence of grace, that ye may be found of him - the Lord Jesus, the Judge of quick and dead, without spot - any contagion of sin in your souls, and blameless - being not only holy and innocent, but useful in your lives.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. Wherefore,
    beloved, seeing ye look for these things , etc.] For the burning of the heavens and the earth, for the coming of Christ, and for the new heavens and new earth, be diligent that ye may be found of him ; Christ, or autw , in him, as in ( Philippians 3:9); for such as are in Christ will have an undoubted right to the new heavens and the new earth, and will certainly dwell in them, because they will be found not in their own righteousness, but in the righteousness of Christ: or before him, as the Arabic version renders it; before him the Judge of all, at whose tribunal they must stand; but being clothed with his righteousness, and so without spot and blemish, they will not be ashamed before him: or by him; Christ first finds his in redemption, and next in the effectual calling, and last of all at his coming, when all the elect will be looked up, gathered in, and presented first to himself, and then to his Father, complete and perfect, not one wanting: and thus to be found in him, and before him, and by him, should be the concern of all that look for the glorious things here spoken of, and particularly that they be found in the following situation and circumstances: in peace; interested in that peace Christ has made by the blood of his cross; for such as are reconciled to God by his death, shall be saved by his life, and live with him in the new heavens and new earth, and for ever in the ultimate glory; and in enjoying that peace of conscience which he himself gives, and which flows from his blood, righteousness, and atonement; so that the day of his coming by death, or at judgment, will not be terrifying to them, but they will look for these things with great delight and satisfaction: or in peace one with another; for peace makers and keepers are called the children of God, and so heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; or in happiness and glory, expressed by peace, which is the end of the righteous man, which he enters into at death, and will rest in to all eternity: without spot and blemish ; no man is so in himself, sanctification is imperfect, and many are the slips and falls of the saints, though their desire is to be harmless and inoffensive, and to give no just occasion for blame or scandal; but the saints are so in Christ Jesus, being washed in his blood, and clothed with his righteousness, and will be found so by him when he comes again, when he will present them to himself a glorious church, without spot or wrinkle, and also before the presence of his Father's glory, as faultless, with exceeding joy; and so will they be fit and meet to be the inhabitants of the new heavens and new earth, and reign with him therein, and be with him to all eternity.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-18 - From the
    doctrine of Christ's second coming, we are exhorted to purit and godliness. This is the effect of real knowledge. Very exact an universal holiness is enjoined, not resting in any low measure of degree. True Christians look for new heavens and a new earth; free from the vanity to which things present are subject, and the sin the are polluted with. Those only who are clothed with the righteousness of Christ, and sanctified by the Holy Ghost, shall be admitted to dwell in this holy place. He is faithful, who has promised. Those, whose sin are pardoned, and their peace made with God, are the only safe an happy people; therefore follow after peace, and that with all men follow after holiness as well as peace. Never expect to be found a that day of God in peace, if you are lazy and idle in this your day, in which we must finish the work given us to do. Only the diligen Christian will be the happy Christian in the day of the Lord. Our Lor will suddenly come to us, or shortly call us to him; and shall he fin us idle? Learn to make a right use of the patience of our Lord, who a yet delays his coming. Proud, carnal, and corrupt men, seek to wres some things into a seeming agreement with their wicked doctrines. But this is no reason why St. Paul's epistles, or any other part of the Scriptures, should be laid aside; for men, left to themselves, perver every gift of God. Then let us seek to have our minds prepared for receiving things hard to be understood, by putting in practice thing which are more easy to be understood. But there must be self-denial an suspicion of ourselves, and submission to the authority of Chris Jesus, before we can heartily receive all the truths of the gospel therefore we are in great danger of rejecting the truth. And whateve opinions and thoughts of men are not according to the law of God, an warranted by it, the believer disclaims and abhors. Those who are le away by error, fall from their own stedfastness. And that we may avoi being led away, we must seek to grow in all grace, in faith, an virtue, and knowledge. Labour to know Christ more clearly, and mor fully; to know him so as to be more like him, and to love him better This is the knowledge of Christ, which the apostle Paul reached after and desired to attain; and those who taste this effect of the knowledg of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, will, upon receiving such grac from him, give thanks and praise him, and join in ascribing glory to him now, in the full assurance of doing the same hereafter, for ever __________________________________________________________________
