2Peter 3:1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you in which my intention is to stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance.
Or, bring those things of sincerity again to the forefront of their minds.
2Peter 3:2 That you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets and of the commandment of us the apostles.(messengers).of the Lord and Saviour.

2Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days.scoffers walking after their own lusts,

2Peter 3:4 And saying Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
People have thought similarly all through history. When's God coming? When will we see God? Is Christ coming back visibly?

Note."since the fathers fell asleep".is a description that can also be applied today, where many are asleep to what is going on and has gone on, here on Earth. And asleep people generally don't want to be awakened, here speaking spiritually. In this they are willingly ignorant:.2Peter 3:5. They would rather be soothed with lies than activated by truth:.Isaiah 30:10.

Jeremiah 17:15 "Behold, they say unto me, Where is the word of the Lord? let it come now."
Ezekiel 12:22-27 "Son of man, what is that proverb that you have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged and every vision fails? Tell them therefore, Thus says the Lord God, I will make this proverb to cease and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel, but say unto them, The days and the effect of every vision are at hand. For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel. For I am the Lord. I will speak and the word that I speak shall come to pass. It shall be no more prolonged. For in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word and perform it, says the Lord God. Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he sees is for many days to come and he prophesies of the times that are far off."
Matthew 24:48 "But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delays his coming."

But, this coming already happened long ago. And He's left something fo us; a gift (1Corinthians 6:19) and with that He'll always be with us:.Hebrews 13:5.

The universe acts consistently according to the patterns God set down for it to do so, why?

2Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of.(they don't want to know things apart from their carnal lifestyles; such as has been the cabal:.Romans 1:28), that by the word of God the heavens were of old and the earth standing out of the water and in the water.
Genesis 1:6.

How old is the Earth?

2Peter 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished..(?)

2Peter 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men..(?)

2Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day..(?)
People today are ignorant of exactly what it is that God is.
2Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack.(but what then is He doing?).concerning his promise.(1John 2:25).as some men count slackness but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish.(John 3:17; Hebrews 7:25), but that all should come to repentance.
Revelation 3:20.
2Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
No more harmful satanic physical world. The new Earth has been implemented and the old is now gone.
2Peter 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 

2Peter 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
A time coming when this universe will not exist as we have known it. And for those in God?.1Corinthians 2:9. Gene Decode explains much more on it. See the one starting with words 'Cain bloodlines'.
2Peter 3:13.Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth.(one that is manifested from the high consciousness of Christ and those in Christ; one needs high consciousness to dwell in that realm of the Creator.{*}), wherein dwells righteousness.(evil is gone and not to come back).
Isaiah 65:17; 66:22; Revelation 21:1.
2Peter 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be diligent.(in what?).that you may be found of him in peace, without spot and blameless.
Verse is saying that one is not in the frame of mind of knowing that he has been made righteous if guilt predominates. If one sees sin in himself, he thinks guilt and is therefore 'unrighteous', even though he may be a good person doing good things; deal with guilt if you have it over something:.2Chronicles 15:7.
2Peter 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation.(the Creator's main concern is the saving of all humanity, but God is patient, never overriding, never forcing, but always daily quietly guiding with many prompts in His gentle leading of humanity toward Him:.Titus 3:4,5); even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you;

2Peter 3:16 As also in all his.(Peter here writing about Paul's letters, letters Paul had sent out to the various churches back then he had visited).epistles speaking in them of these things in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures.(Exodus 23:1,2), unto their own destruction.
Important to get all you can in answering any questions you may have, so you end up with the proper meaning that's helpful for you.

Barnes Notes:."The writings of Paul were in the hands of the people, else how could they wrest and pervert them?".What people and what did they do?

2Peter 3:17 You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
2Peter 3:17 You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked.(the 'error of the wicked' is the established low consciousness belief of gain is godliness, that is 'I have money {1Timothy 6:5} and exemplified in the previous chapter, chapter 2; believing the physical life will provide themselves with the ultimate great life), fall from your own stedfastness.(be alert for feelings that can nip away at a balanced life).
2Peter 3:18 But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Emmanuel Christ. To him be glory both now and forever.
2Peter 3:18 But grow.(study helps to grow and so do the main spiritual disciplines).in grace and in the knowledge.(*).of our Lord.(what's the 'Lord' mean?).and Saviour Emmanuel Christ. To him be glory both now and forever.
....next New Testament book is 1John
