There is no end of time (2 Pet 3:4)

“These scoffers will say,

‘Where is the promise

Of his coming?

Ever since our ancestors


All things continue

As they were

From the beginning

Of creation.’”

καὶ λέγοντες Ποῦ ἐστιν ἡ ἐπαγγελία τῆς παρουσίας αὐτοῦ; ἀφ’ ἧς γὰρ οἱ πατέρες ἐκοιμήθησαν, πάντα οὕτως διαμένει ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς κτίσεως.

This author said, “These scoffers will say (καὶ λέγοντες), ‘Where is (Ποῦ ἐστιν) the promise (ἡ ἐπαγγελία) of his coming (τῆς παρουσίας αὐτοῦ)?  Ever since (ἀφ’ ἧς γὰρ) our ancestors (οἱ πατέρες) died (ἐκοιμήθησαν), all things continue (πάντα οὕτως διαμένει) as they were from the beginning of creation (ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς κτίσεως).’”  These mocking scoffing false teachers will mock the second coming of Jesus Christ, the Parousia (παρουσίας).  Instead, they will say that their ancestors have died, both those of long ago and more recently.  Despite their death, life goes on.  Everything continues the same as it has from the beginning of creation.  They were mocking the concept of the second coming or the judgment day.  Do you believe in the judgment day of the second coming of Jesus Christ?
