2 Peter 1:3-4 – His Divine Power

“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”

The operative word in this verse is ‘everything.’ There is nothing from the world that can add to our life of godliness if we know Yeshua and his glory and goodness. Through the promises of Elohim brought to fruition in Messiah Yeshua, we can through the Ruach haKodesh (the Spirit of God), the divine nature of Elohim, escape the corruption in the world caused by our evil fleshly desires.

This verse also encompasses ‘everything’ that we can see and know in the created world and life around us. His divine power can be seen in ‘everything’ from the moment Elohim said, “Let there be light” until He rested. Every science can be found in the days of creation from the physics of life to the study of the atmosphere to the study of plants and animals – sea, air and land – to sociology. His divine power is seen in the sun, moon and stars, the planets, the birds, the fish, and most importantly the glory of His creation, mankind.

“For ever since the creation of the universe his invisible qualities — both his eternal power and his divine nature — have been clearly seen, because they can be understood from what he has made” (Romans 1:20).
