1 Peter 4:7

 7 But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober for prayer.

2 Peter 3:12

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 12 While waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of Christ,3 in which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? [Notice! If you can hasten the coming of the day of God, then obviously it is a personal experience. Waiting for God hastens the day of Christ, when Jesus appears in a purified heart, when you are translated out of the physical dimension to the Kingdom of Heaven; the world passes away and disappears. 1 John 2:7. To wait on God is to listen, watch, and obey.]

2 Peter 1:16

 16 For we did not make known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ by following cleverly concocted fables, but were eyewitnesses of his grandeur.

1 Peter 1:5-7

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith to salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

 6 In that greatly rejoice though it is necessary to suffer a few griefs now through various trials, [To receive salvation and the kingdom you first must suffer through tribulations and hardships. This has been mistranslated to be: you may have to suffer; there is no mention of may or if necessary in the Greek. Indeed, all who are determined to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 2 Tim 3:12. The same sufferings are being experienced by all your brothers in the world. 1 Pet 5:9. Salvation comes after suffering. "For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and scourges every son whom he accepts. If you are without chastisement [correcting rebuke and discipline], of which all [true sons of God] must share, then you are illegitimate, and not sons." Heb 12:6,8]

 7 So that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tried with fire, might result in praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 4:12-13

 12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial, which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;

 13 But rejoice, since you are partakers of Christ's sufferings, so that when his glory is revealed, you may be glad with exceeding joy.4
