2 Peter 3:1-4: This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets and of the commandment of us the Apostles of the Lord and Savior: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts 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.’
Psalms 2:1-5: Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His anointed, saying ‘Let us break their bands asunder and cast away their cords from us.’ He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh. The Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath and vex them in His sore displeasure.
