When Jesus was born, he came in weakness as an infant. Peter tells believers that scoffers will come who will mock God’s Word. To answer them, Peter shows how God’s word was active in creation and the flood. God’s word is also active in preserving the present world for God’s judgment to come. Peter explains that God is not subject to time the way we are, rather he rules over time. God is not delaying his coming, instead, he is patient longing for everyone to repent and come to Jesus. Scoffers or not, the day of the Lord, though, will come like a thief!
