"Knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ" (II Peter
1:8b) and godliness

All of you must read the following words from Peter, and from the Word of
God, allowing them to sink in.  Just these 10 verses express as none other,
the multiple Bible emphasis of SunGrist for this coming year of 2014.
You will find here:  "The Christian View of Life and Living", "The Prophet
Messiah", "Religion without God and the Power of God", and more.  It will
provide also an introduction to the new series of 2014 on a subject harmony
of the epistles of Peter and Paul, as listed above.  This will be both one of the
most exciting and informative Bible studies of your life, and surprisingly a very
practical Apology for the consistency of the Bible, illustrating that the Bible is
the Word of God!

"Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of
Jesus our Lord,
as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and
godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and
virtue,
by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious
promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature,
having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith
virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control
perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly
kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.
For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor
unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

For he who lacks these things is short sighted, even to blindness, and
has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and
election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble.
for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the
everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."  (II Peter
1:2-11)

1.  A Bible Introduction to God likeness.

NOTE:  Through the following months and years of this Bible study
series on "Knowledge of Jesus and godliness", the real Bible may
necessitate the modification of certain preconceived concepts of
theology on sanctification, godliness, anointing, and the filling with the
Holy Spirit, even the speaking in unknown tongues as evidence of the
filling with the Holy Spirit. Of course Jesus, as on all matters of the
Christian view of life and living, set the example on "godliness", and we
are reminded in the words of I Timothy 3:16 that without any
controversy "great is the mystery of godliness".

2.   "Come and See".

NOTE:  Knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ is both personal,
experienced and manifested (John 14:22-24) in a way which the world
can not see; and a matter of Bible faith based on Bible truth--"faith
cometh by hearing {or reading}, and hearing or reading by the word of
God" (Romans 10:17)

The call and appeal from Jesus to first disciples was a pragmatic appeal
to "Come and See" (John 1:39), and today through the continuing and
awesome work of the Holy Spirit (John 16:7-11) is still a practical,
pragmatic, and very personal appeal to more disciples.
