Audio Series:

kjv@2Peter:1:2 @ "Grace and Peace Multiplied Through the Knowledge of.."



kjv@2Peter:1:2 @ Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

Grace and peace certainly wouldn't be a bad thing for us to start with; no doubt. How often can anyone of us say that we have made it to that point in any given situation? It is more likely that we find ourselves at the opposite point in the spectrum. Right?

More than just the words of an introduction however, Peter intends to convey an essential truth to his readers by combining the common introduction "grace and peace" with the uncommon multiplying effect of the knowledge of God and Jesus Christ. The Greek word he used here that we've translated in English as knowledge indicates something more than a mere intellectual knowledge. It would benefit us greatly to better know this all important word and the direct objects it is multiplying.

Along with this being a formative audio series, I would also like to present to you my many study resources and notes. Please, like any good Berrean, utilize these many links to formulate your own educated opinions of these life changing doctrinal matters.

1. Grace.

Quoted resource: strongs 'G5485'

2. Peace.

Quoted resource: strongs 'G1515'

G1515 @ εἰρήνη eirēnē i-rah'-nay Probably from a primary verb εἴρω eirō (to join); peace (literally or figuratively); by implication prosperity: - one peace quietness rest + set at one again.

Sermon Outline

Grace and Peace Multiplied Through the Knowledge of

kjv@2Peter:1:2 @ Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

    Let's examine:
  1. Where does this type spoken of by Peter come from?
  2. How is it either diminished or multiplied?
  3. If multiplied through the knowledge of God/Christ what is this knowledge?
  4. kjv@Colossians:2:2 @ ..to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

    kjv@Philemon:1:6 @ That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

    What this might mean to us here today?
  1. In the past had we operated within this divinely given Grace/Peace it is very likely that we wouldn't be facing the same lack of fruit that effects us now.
  2. In the past had we operated within this grace and peace, we would better know our God and Lord by experience so as to multiply the grace and peace required now.
  3. There is a certainty that how you go about this will greatly effect your effort in terms of our faith virtue knowledge temperance patience godliness kindness agape
  4. knowing the availability of this spiritual process now would it not be better to get on board with the servant and apostles Peter's form of grace and peace and multiplication instead of our own?

There will be more needing to be said regarding this element and how best to apply it into our daily lives. For now it may be best bath in some reconciliation scripture:
