At the revelation of Jesus Christ
Jesus the Rock, The Rock of Offence, our rock, The Rock cut from The Mountain with out hands signifies the divine origin of Christ our Lord, broke into pieces and is consuming all the other kingdoms.
Solomon built him an house. Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? Hath not my hand made all these things?
Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.
Book 60 1Peter
Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered
throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,
through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and
sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ Grace unto you, and
peace, be multiplied.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which
according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a
lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that
fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation
ready to be revealed in the last time.
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need
be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations
That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of
gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be
found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of
Whom having not seen, ye love in whom, though now ye see him
not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full
Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your
Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched
diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto
Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ
which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand
the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto
us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto
you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the
Holy Ghost sent down from heaven which things the angels
desire to look into.
Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope
to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the
revelation of Jesus Christ
As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to
the former lusts in your ignorance
But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all
manner of conversation
Because it is written, Be ye holy for I am holy.
And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons
judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your
sojourning here in fear
Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with
corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain
conversation received by tradition from your fathers
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without
blemish and without spot
Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the
world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the
dead, and gave him glory that your faith and hope might be in
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth
through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see
that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of
incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth
For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the
flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof
But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the
word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and
hypocrisies, and envies, all evil speakings,
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye
may grow thereby
If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of
men, but chosen of God, and precious,
Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an
holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable
to God by Jesus Christ.
Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay
in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious and he that
believeth on him shall not be confounded.
Unto you therefore which believe he is precious but unto them
which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed,
the same is made the head of the corner,
And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them
which stumble at the word, being disobedient whereunto also
they were appointed.
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy
nation, a peculiar people that ye should shew forth the
praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his
Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people
of God which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims,
abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul
