Today we read the first chapter of the first letter of the Apostle Peter and one chapter of Ezekiel.
1 Peter 1. The apostle Paul was greeting his fellow elect pilgrims of the dispersion and reminded them of their heavenly inheritance, as they were living before God their Father. In so doing they must be holy, having been regenerated (translated born again) and redeemed by Jesus Christ, the risen Savior, foreordained before the foundation of the world.
Ezekiel 39. Things will be going bad for Gog. His armies will be destroyed and he himself will be buried in Israel, there will be a triumphant festival and Israel will be restored to the land.
