2 Peter 3:5–6 ESV
For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished.
What does the Word of God say concerning the heavens and the earth?
They are kept in store and reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
What should we be careful not to forget?
That time is meaningless to the Lord.
With the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
The will Lord come after a grand heavenly proclamation
False
