Until the Day Dawns

Purpose: To exhort the church of Jesus Christ to be devoted to the prophetic word so that they're able to be diligent when it comes to holiness and discerning when it comes to heretics.

Key Verses:

"And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts..." (2 Peter 1:19)

"You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen." (2 Peter 3:17–18)
