Repentance in 2 Peter 3:9

 

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

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.

5       For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

6       Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

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.

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.

9       The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

 

Subject Repenting, not repenting, etc.:        Scoffers who mock the Christian faith, and who are willingly ignorant of God's creation, and judgment on the world that was through the flood of Noah.

 

Object of Repentance:                  The object of repentance is not expressly stated.  Since repentance means "a change of mind," we can only inferentially determine the object of repentance by determining what the men who are called to repentance "believed" or "thought" or "supposed."  We are told that the Scoffers  mock the Christians who await the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, that they are "willingly ignorant" that God created the universe, and that He judged the world that was by water (through the flood of Noah.)  Accordingly, they need to change their mind about Jesus, about the Creator, and recognize that judgment faces them if they refuse to repent.

 

Consequence of not repenting:   The implication from the context is that God will judge the world just as He judged the world that was in the Days of Noah, and those who do not change their mind about God as the Creator, and the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ, will be judged as surely as the men in the day's of Noah.
