I Peter and Christ’s Direct Teachings in the Gospels and Revelation:
 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
**Why call them strangers? Because believers are no longer citizens of this fake world system.
 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.
**No hand picked believers exist. God’s electorate are those He has known will believe since the foundation of the world.
** Only those who have the Spirit of Christ are set apart by God to live for the eternal.
 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,
**God has provided His Spirit to beget us again which is the second birth of our spirits and regenerates us into His Image.
 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.
**We can never turn away from God’s Truth.
 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 Jesus Christ:
**Satan’s world will hate you and mock you and ridicule you and persecute you and murder you soon.
 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
**True faith puts His Spirit in us and we will never turn from this faith.
 Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
**Remember the mysteries of Christ.
 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.
The prophets of the Old Testament testified through the Holy Spirit (Whom would come upon God’s prophets) to give His Old Testament Scriptures temporarily. Now God shows us that after our Lord Ascended all who believe will have the Holy Spirit indwelling them for the rest of their physical lives. The Holy Spirit's indwelling of God's Children is no longer intermittent nor temporary.
 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;
**Vain imaginations of the wicked is what Satan’s world wide religions are all about including all sects of so called “Christianity”.
 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 God.
 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 ever.
**Faith comes by hearing the Word of God, Faith increases by hearing the Word of God.
 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
**Believers look past this dying and fake world of Satan and look only to eternity and our Lord.
 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and 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.
**When we first start to believe, we become more interested in His Word and growth and we also understand that Satan will distract and deflect and use the speed of the world to keep us FROM walking with God. Satan wants us too busy for the Lord. This is why we must pray all the day long for the Spirit’s conviction and power in us to DIE TO THE FLESH AND THIS FAKE WORLD AND TO LIVE ONLY UNTO CHRIST.
 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.
God is a Spirit and those who worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth AND NOT THE LETTERS OF ANY LAWS OR RULES.
 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.
The religious are reprobate in the faith and will not turn to the Living God from men’s traditions.
 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 marvellous light:
 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.
**Remember the gentiles were not included when Christ came, only after national Israel’s rejection of the True Messiah did God grant Grace to the gentiles BECAUSE HE KNEW WE WOULD HEAR IT.
 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.
**Remember they mock us now but soon will see the Truth when it is too late for them and many will Glorify God because of our sacrifice for Him as HE sacrificed for us.
 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.
**Follow the rules set forth by the institutions God has allowed and ordained to prevent the chaos that existed prior to the Flood of Noah's day.
 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
**Remember our Romans study, we worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth and nothing is sinful in itself. However, we are not to flaunt this liberty in Christ.
 Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.
 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.
 For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.
 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
** Give the wicked no earthly thing that they can turn against us. We must follow their rules all the time UNTIL their human laws contradict our Lord’s Teachings.
Remember God is not saying obey specific people in these positions. It has nothing to do with people and God installs NO ONE during this last time we live in. Satan is the "god" of this world since Christ's Ascension. Satan alone raises and lowers kings and principalities and powers in this current age or "time".
 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: GOD THE FATHER
 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
**Praise God that we hear and believed and came back to Him in Spirit and in Truth.
 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
**Notice He is specifically referring to women, more evidence that man is a generic term that applies to both male and female.
**These are the rewards for women who believe and follow the Lord.
 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
Do not laugh at the promises of God as did Sarah and then later feared her outburst and lack of faith.
 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
** We are all different and have different roles but we should all approach them only in the power of the Holy Spirit through walking with God in His Word and prayer.
 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
**More of the Sermon on the Mount.
 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
**More evidence that the Lord will not hear the fleshly prayers of the lost.
 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
**And they will be at the time of their judgement. They will understand shame and regret.
Mark 9:43, And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
The lost dead carcasses will be in hell burning, their souls intact and conscious.
DON'T YOU GET IT YET? The Lord is saying that when you open your eyes in hell at the end of this life, you will look back and frantically wish that you would have listened and believed. You will realize then the Words of our Lord: that you would have gladly cut out your eyes and cut off your feet and lived blind and maimed temporarily than come to this horrible torment for eternity.
 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
**If we deserve suffering for our actions contrary to God’s Word than we get what we deserve but if we suffer for His Namesake, we will have eternal reward from God.
 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
**During the three days and three nights our Lord was in hell, He preached the truths they all missed in the Old Testament Scriptures.
 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
**Noah preached God’s Everlasting Gospel for 120 years while preparing the ark. God did not tell Noah to soften the message or change it to make it more palatable for the wicked. God did not tell Noah, he must convince the wicked. God simply told Noah to preach the Truth of God to them. What they do with the Truth is between them and God.
 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
**Our baptisms are the outward declaration of what has happened in our hearts through faith. Just as the FLOOD of Noah’s day showed the world God’s Wrath against the disobedient. The flood showed the world the consequences of disbelief, just as baptism shows the world the Resurrection and Hope we have in Christ.
 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
**This is proof of the final steps of faith unto salvation…When we realize the cost of our belief ON CHRIST we willingly suffer for His Name Sake. This is death to self and separation from this fake world's systems all controlled by Satan.
 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
**When we believe, the unbelievers around us will lose us. They will not want to be around the preaching of the Cross and God’s Truth. They think it strange that you have changed and will no longer party with them.
 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.
 For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
 Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
**More direct teachings of our Lord in the Gospels.
 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
** There is no Word of God apart from His Written and Complete Word.
 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
**Don’t be afraid with any amazement at the persecutions you will endure. God allows it for His Glory. This and ONLY THIS is how God receives Glory in the last time. To endure suffering for HIS NAME SAKE.
 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
AGAIN: Don’t do wrong in this world. We are to suffer only false accusation and persecution for His Namesake. We must ensure that their accusations against us are false and only for the Name of Christ.
 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
Lets remember this since our time is coming soon. As Jesus said, if they have hated Me they shall also hate you because you conform into HIS IMAGE through His Word and His Spirit. Because of your testimony in Christ and your keeping of the True Sayings of God, the principalities and powers of the world (under Satan's direct control) can not hide their sin. They desperately need to cloak their sins and they will rid themselves of us very soon.
 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
God will recompense their evil against you . In ways that we cannot possible match or even fathom.
 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
** Only elders are considered pastors to God and these are in their home churches.
 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
 Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
**Men are not to be seekers of mammon or title or respect or position but rather follow our Lord Jesus Christ and consider themselves servants to all.
 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Even nature itself teaches us that a position of responsibility and wisdom cannot be held by the young in any setting containing persons of more experience and wisdom. The young can never oversee or instruct elders (according to the I Timothy and Titus among others). This idea of physically young men being placed as spiritual leaders came directly from Rome and is found nowhere in Scripture.
 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
**Satan attacks true believers the most and we are the only people on the planet that he attacks DIRECTLY because of our faith. He works diligently to put doubt in our minds. His world's cultural and social systems blind the wicked by their own choice. He has no need to directly attack them because his governments do, his media does, his public education does. As long as satan's world systems keep you in blindness he has no personal interest in you.
James 4: 7,8: Resist the devil and he will flee from you, draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
This suffering is but for a short time and pales in comparison to the Glory yet to be revealed in us. Because of one thing only: Our faith!
 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
 By Silvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God wherein ye stand.
 The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son.
14] Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
