1 peter 5:10 commentary

This cruel error causes many to question their faith when they need it most. Second, what to do about the devil. God will not continue the trials of his people longer than their good requires: when this end is secured, he will bring them forth as gold from the furnace, purer and better fitted for pure and eternal joys. In the best texts, these verbs are future. All this is to take place at the close of the short spell of suffering which is the means to it. It was proper in their anticipated trials to direct them to God, and to breathe forth in their behalf an earnest and affectionate prayer that they might be supported. Establish; you in the hope and peace of the gospel. After that ye have suffered. The process was equally necessary in their new fishing and the word was naturally applied to the mending of the Churches or individual Christians who by their good behaviour must catch men (see e.g., 1 Corinthians 1:10). вость (ст. 10.Over against the fearful picture just drawn is the brighter one of eternal glory. (See 1 Peter 1:12; 1 Peter 1:25, and Notes.) 1 Peter 5:10. 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. A secondary purpose is to encourage Christians to face persecution and suffering (1 Pe 1… He encourages them by explaining that none of their suffering is in vain, but is meant to produce spiritual fruit as a “refining fire” for the Christian (1 Peter 1:6-7). [Note: Davids, p196.]. 10), поклонение (ст. Compare in this regard 1 Peter 1:4-5; 1 Peter 1:9; 1 Peter 1:13; 1 Peter 1:11; 1 Peter 1:21; 1 Peter 3:15; 1 Peter 4:13. So the idea behind it is to make sure and strong, to restore and refresh. ‘suffered for a little while’-Eternity always places everything in the right perspective. The purpose of 1 Peter is to enable Christians to come to grips with the grace of God in suffering (1 Pe 5:12). For we have even now ‘been called out of darkness into His most marvellous light’ (1 Peter 2:9), while ‘the glories that will follow’ (1 Peter 1:11) include the triumphs of His people in the present age, as He sees the incoming of His seed and the bringing about of God’s pleasure (Isaiah 53:10). We have nothing that we don’t receive from him. He makes the amazing statement in chapter four that “it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God” (1 Pt 4:17)? As to the three words which follow, some copies have them in the ablative case, which may be rendered in Latin by gerunds (fulciendo, roborando, stabiliendo ) by supporting, by strengthening, by establishing. Besides, Peter intends the same thing by all these words, even to confirm the faithful; and he uses these several words for this purpose, that we may know that to follow our course is a matter of no common difficulty, and that therefore we need the special grace of God. Grudem notes, ‘and we should add…that he will settle…them in any rightful place from which the suffering has wrongfully removed them. Through their suffering God will produce a fully restored… confirmed character in them.’ (Davids p. 195), ‘confirm’-‘strengthen, make firm’ (Thayer p. 588) (Luke 22:32; Romans 16:25; 1 Thessalonians 3:2; 1 Thessalonians 3:13; 2 Thessalonians 2:17; 2 Thessalonians 3:3; 2 Peter 1:12; Revelation 3:2). But - only do you watch and resist the foe: God will perform the rest (Bengel). Make you perfect—So that in your religious life will remain no defect. The opposite is "in the world" (1 Peter 5:9). Thus for to a certain limited extent we are already enjoying the inheritance of the saints in light (Colossians 1:12; Ephesians 5:8-10; John 8:12; John 12:46). The last part of the verse is a wish on behalf of the brethren for certain blessings to be given to them by the God of all grace. They have been experiencing trials (1:6), so he is encouraging them by reminding them of their prospects for glory and salvation (1:8-9). Both our calling and our glory are in Christ. Close. Note thirdly, however, that this royal summons (‘called’) from the One Who has all dominion (1 Peter 5:11) is a call to eternal glory. So by His sufficiency of grace He will ‘make whole, establish and strengthen them’. 1. 8. “Compared to the joys of Eternity, the sufferings of this life are both light and brief!” Compare 2 Corinthians 4:16-18. 1 Pedro 5 – Para Pastores y Ovejas A. After ye have suffered a little while ... who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Jesus Christ, After that ye have suffered awhile, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you, After that ye have suffered a little while, σὺ ποτὲ ἐπιστρέψας στήρισον τοὺς ἀδελφούς σου. And ended his prayer with a doxology to God, expressive … Will himself perfect you. but the texts omit "Jesus". To bear God’s image is to be given a will and a delegated authority to make decisions. Let them then also remember that He has called them to His eternal glory in Christ, and has sufficiency of grace for every situation. (; 4:10; 5:5) The God who gives ‘grace’ for every situation, the God who ensures that there never exists a hardship which is beyond our ability to endure (1 Corinthians 10:13; 2 Corinthians 12:9). It may also be right, by the way, to observe that when he says that we are called in Christ, first, our calling is established, because it is rightly founded; and secondly, that all respect to our worthiness and merit is excluded; for that God, by the preaching of the gospel, invites us to himself, it is altogether gratuitous; and it is still a greater grace that he efficaciously touches our hearts so as to lead us to obey his voice. A very cruel error is being proclaimed from some pulpits, especially by certain television preachers seeking to attract followers and supporters. 1. ‘to share in his eternal glory’ (Mon) 2. ‘in Christ’-The acceptance of the calling happens ‘in Christ’. What an amazing promise this is for those who resist the evil one as he attempts to devour the church through suffering and persecution (1 Pt 5:8-9). "What Peter has done is pile up a number of closely related terms that together by their reinforcing one another give a multiple underscoring of the good that God is intending for them and even now is producing in their suffering." “Compared to the joys of Eternity, the sufferings of this life are both, which Christians expect to share in Eternity. 8, 9), надежду (ст. ‘And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after that you have suffered a little while, will himself make whole, establish, strengthen you.’. This is one of the great benedictions of the Bible. Hence the opening ‘but,’ or ‘moreover’ (not ‘and’). Or St. Peter may use the word ολιγον, here rendered a while, and which means a little, in respect of the degree as well as of the duration of suffering; for, compared with the joys of heaven, the sufferings of this life are light as well as momentary, 2 Corinthians 4:17. The same God who begins must Himself complete the work. Endurance in James 1:2 is same word as perseverance in 2 Peter 1:5. So it is fitting that the one into whose heart the glory of Jesus had been burned by his experience on the Mount of Transfiguration, should now be the one to make known to God’s people the promise of participation in the eternal glory that he had momentarily experienced there. NKJV But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. No suffering will last forever for the believer in Christ. ‘The radical notion of the verb is, therefore, adjustment---the putting of all the parts into right relation and connection.’ (Vincent p. 671). As it is God’s part that Peter is now urging for the final comfort of his readers, that name is set emphatically first, and the solemn ‘Himself’ (which is missed by Tyndale, Cranmer, and the A. V., but caught by Wycliffe and the Versions of Geneva and Rheims) is brought in before the verbs which state the things which He is certain to do (cf. Log In/Sign Up New International Version ... 1 Peter 5:10 in all English translations. These four verbs describe God"s working, not after, but during the suffering. All blessings flow from the throne of God. All time is short in comparison of what comes after. He will not let His purpose fall short of completion (1 Samuel 3:12). NIV And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. The climax requires rather a verb of completing the work of grace, than founding it. The whole letter is aiming towards this. Who hath called us This, as I have said, serves to increase confidence, because God is led not only by his goodness, but also by his gracious benevolence, to aid us more and more. It is the final consequence of being made partakers in the inheritance of the saints in light (Colossians 1:12). That said, the Bible is also clear that, because of our sinful nature, we are unable to come to God apart from his will to draw us to him (Jn 6:44). The title is itself a consolation. Such things they must expect from the adversary, but what may they not expect from God? Of all grace - (cf. 10. II. Suffering, as a preliminary to glory, was contemplated in God's calling. One day they willlive with God in heaven and share God’s *glory. settle = ground, as on a foundation. This assurance is introduced as a contrast with, or qualification of, what has been said of the burdens of believers. In other words He is the source and provider of unlimited supplies of His gracious and powerful working on behalf of all who are His own (compare Ephesians 3:16-19). The God who now bestows all grace, by the giving of that grace calls us into glory. The final stage of our own process of salvation and sanctification is also called “glorification” (Ro 8:30). But its double mention in these verses emphasises how much Peter also saw us as ‘in Christ’. Unless so great an object is to be frustrated, it must be that God will carry them through their sufferings, and make these the means of perfecting, stablishing, and strengthening them with a view to that glory. 2. Benedictions, salutations, and conclusion, 1 Peter 5:10-14. Will himself make you perfect. Tyndale is better—‘after ye have suffered a little affliction.’ What Peter has in mind is not the need of suffering at least for a time, but the shortness of the suffering. Though you are called on to watch and resist the foe, God Himself [ autos (Greek #846)] must do all in and through you. It is never in vain. Strengthen, that you may overcome all force brought against you.” The word for “to settle” means “to found,” to give a solid foundation. Christ saw his death and resurrection as his “glorification” (Jn 12:23). But Peter could also refer to the fact that the persecution would terminate at the death of Nero, and there would be a period of peace.

In 1 Peter 1:2 we were ‘chosen by God the Father, through sanctification in the Spirit, unto the obedience of Jesus Christ and the sprinkling of His blood’, with the result that we had become just sojourners in the world (1 Peter 1:1; 1 Peter 2:13), called by Him into His most marvellous light (1 Peter 2:9), but with the recognition that we must be purified in the crucible of life (1 Peter 1:7; ). The glorious promise to Christian sufferers,1 Peter 5:10 b. Stablish imports the curing of our natural lightness and inconstancy. Now Peter especially addresses the faithful; he therefore connects the efficacious power of the Spirit with the outward doctrine. God wants to share heaven with all many as possible. Karen H. Jobes.

They assure their audience that Christ’s death on Calvary means the end of suffering and of Satan—for all who have sufficient faith. 1 Peter 5:10 After you have suffered for a little while, thea God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you. And yet it confirms that their journey is not yet over, but that they will be given full strength and sustenance in the way (compare Isaiah 40:31; Isaiah 43:2). And this example ought to be followed by all the ministers of God, that is, to pray that he may give success to their labors; for otherwise they effect nothing either by planting or by watering. John Piper @JohnPiper. 2 Peter 1:5-10 New International Version (NIV). Make you perfect.—Strictly these are futures, “shall (or, will) make you perfect” &c. This verb occurs again in 1 Thessalonians 3:10, and elsewhere. But the God of all grace, who called you unto his eternal glory in Christ, after that ye have Buffered a little while, will himself perfect, stablish, strengthen you. Take heart when you are suffering. After that ye have suffered a while — Such trials as his infinite wisdom shall see fit to appoint. The concept of self-denial is at the heart of Paul's teaching on submission to God: We have died with Christ and must sacrifice our lives for Him. It appears that Peter is saying that the suffering we face on earth is some kind of deposit on judgment. ‘Refers to fixity and immobility of those who rely on the Lord.’ (Woods p. 132). For as a result of that suffering they will be made all the stronger (1 Peter 1:7; 1 Peter 4:1-2). KJV 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. In verses 5 to 11 Peter speaks to ordinary Christians in the church. Thus the apostle, being converted, does now strengthen his brethren. 1. Heeding his words ma… Colossians 1:23, and App-146. At the same time, the Apostle, by praying God, confirms those to whom he was writing, for when he calls God the author of all grace, and reminds them that they were called to eternal glory, his purpose no doubt was, to confirm them in the conviction, that the work of their salvation, which he had begun, would be completed. Compare. Bengel speaks of them as ‘language worthy of Peter (a rock),’ and gives the points briefly thus—perfect—so that no defect can remain in you; stablish—so that nothing shall shake you; strengthen—so that ye may overcome every opposing force. Here’s a very helpful verse to go through while we’re waiting on God: “And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” – 1 Peter 5:10, NIV. The same contrast between temporary affliction and the eternal glory is drawn by St. Paul in 2 Corinthians 4:17, ’ , where in addition to the antithesis between eternal glory and temporary suffering the weight of glory (play on meanings of root ) is opposed to the lightness of tribulation.— has the force of (1 Thessalonians 5:24).— , shall perfect. Divested of this peculiarity, the words would run thus: “may he establish, strengthen, confirm, perfect you;” that is, to give the words more literally, “may he put you on a solid foundation, render you strong, render you firm, make you perfect.” — Ed. 1 Peter 5:10 Parallel Verses [⇓ See commentary ⇓] 1 Peter 5:10, NIV: "And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."

God of all grace. (56) And he mentions expressly all grace, first that they might learn that every blessing is to be ascribed to God; and secondly, that one grace is connected with another, so that they might hope in future for the addition of those graces in which they were hitherto wanting. This last chapter divides itself naturally into three parts. Thus He will firmly and strongly renew, refresh, establish, make sure, and strengthen them for what lies ahead. The second (sterizo) is found in Psalms 51:12 LXX, ‘renew(restore) a right (directing) spirit within me’; in Psalms 104:15 LXX, ‘and bread whichstrengthens(nourishes) man’s heart’; in Psalms 111:7-8 LXX, ‘The works of His hands are truth and judgment, all his commandments are sure,establishedfor ever and ever’; in Psalms 112:8 (LXX), ‘His heart isestablished, he will not be afraid’; in Proverbs 15:25 (LXX), ‘heestablishesthe border of the widow’; Psalm 16:30 LXX (compare Psalm 27:20 LXX), ‘and the man who fixes his eyes devises perverse things.’ These examples demonstrate that it covers a similar area to katartizo.

In Him the two are drawn inseparably together. 2d, May he strengthen you, that no power of earth or hell may move you from that foundation. They are themselves appointed to the trying duty of strenuous resistance; but, if so, God also will act with them in the perilous situation. Los ancianos deben ser pastores fieles. And the reason that we can show forth His excellencies (1 Peter 2:9) is precisely because we ourselves have seen the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6), a vision that has transformed our lives. Peter encourages us to consider that our pain will not last. He had called them in His Son (by uniting them with Him), and that with the very object of bringing them in the end to His eternal glory. If the former, how short the suffering prelude to the eternity of glow; if the latter, how light the affliction in view of the “far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory!”. Yet the space of suffering will be brief. Christ is He in virtue of, and in union with, whom believers are called to glory. He is called the God of all grace from the effect, from the gifts he bestows, according to the Hebrew manner.
