An Apostle Is A Person Whom Jesus Directly Called. If A Person Was Not Directly Called By Jesus Christ They Can't Be Called An "Apostle".
Scattered-To Be "Left Behind" When Jesus Raptures God Approved Christians Into Heaven. The Disobedient Israelites And Christians Are The "Third" Of Heaven (Stars, Host, Saints, Elect, Ram (Lamb) With Two Horns) Which Will Be Left Behind For The Great Tribulation (Ezekiel 5:12; Ezekiel 6:5; Matthew 9:36; Matthew 26:31; John 16:32; Daniel 8:1-17; Revelation 12:1-16; Daniel 7:25; Revelation 13:11-18; Matthew 24:24-31; Luke 18:7).
Strangers-Anyone Who Hasn't Been God Approved To Enter Heaven (Ephesians 2:12-22; Matthew 25:1-12; Matthew 7:13-29).
1 Peter 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
"Elect" These Are Jesus' Disobedient Servants Which Will Be "Left Behind" On Planet Earth During The Great Tribualtion (Matthew 24:24-31; Luke 18:7).
Multiplied-Great Multitude Which Comes Out Of The Great Tribulation (Revelation 7:14).
1 Peter 1:3 Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
Praise God! Peter Shares The Wonderful Christian Gospel To These Readers (John 3:16).
1 Peter 1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 1 Peter 1:5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Revealed-The Revelation When Jesus Is Revealed By Rapture In Heaven And The Man Of Sin Beast Is Revealed On Earth At The Same Time (2 Thessalonians 2:1-17; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17).
1 Peter 1:6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
A Season-This Prophetically Points To The Great Tribulation Where God The Spirit Leaves His Disobedient Servants In The "Wilderness" To Be Tempted Of The Dragon Devil Wild Beast (Mark 1:10-13; Matthew 4:1-11; Matthew 25:1-12; Matthew 7:13-29; John 4:24; Numbers 21:5-9; John 3:14; Job 1:1-10; Job 2:1-10; Job 41:1-22; Psalm 104:24-27; 1 Peter 5:8-10; Revelation 12:1-17).
1 Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 1 Peter 1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see [him] not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
Appearing Of Jesus Christ-The Rapture And The Great Tribulation (Weeping And Gnashing Of Teeth) Both Begin At The Rapture (Appearing) Of Jesus Christ (Matthew 25:1-12).
The Great Tribulation Is The Trial Which Will Force Disobedient (Fleshly) Servants Of God To "Cry Out" And Accept The Blood (Grace Not Works Or Law) Of Jesus Christ. This Trial Is The Winepress Trodding (Psalm 69:1-4, 14; Matthew 23:37-39; Revelation 14:1-24; Romans 5:9; Romans 10:4; 1 John 1:7-10; 2 Corinthians 3:1-17; Luke 21:20-24; Daniel 8:1-17).
Jesus Christ Whom (You) Have Not Seen-Those Entering Heaven At The Rapture Will See Jesus (God) As He Is (1 John 3:2). Those "Left Behind" Will Not See Jesus During The Great Tribulation. The Will Be "Sleep (Spiritually Dead)" When Jesus Arrives (Matthew 25:1-12).
1 Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, [even] the salvation of [your] souls.
The End And Salvation-The Great Tribulation Will End When These Disobedient Servants Of God Repent And Cry Out To Jesus Christ To Save Them (Luke 18:7).
1 Peter 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace [that should come] unto you:
Most "Christian" And Israeli Religions Are "Priestly". This Is Blasphemy As Jesus Christ Is Our High Priest And The Only One Who Can Gain Us Heavenly Entry (Hebrews 3:1).
Most "Christian" And Israeli Religions Observe Some Aspect Of The Mosaic Law. Thus They Reject Jesus By Their Self Righteous Works (Romans 10:4).
None Of These Worshippers Can Enter Heaven Until They Forsake What Is "Lawful (Of The Law)" And Accept That God's Grace Is All They Need. This Is Why God Will Allow Them To Be Buffetted And Afflicted During The Great Tribulation (2 Corinthians 12:1-15; Matthew 26:60-66; Romans 10:4; 2 Corinthians 3:1-17).

Grace- Any Heaven Bound Christian Is Saved By Grace And GRACE Alone (Ephesians 2:5-8)!
1 Peter 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 1 Peter 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. 1 Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
Signify-The "Sign" Of Jesus Christ Concerns His Appearing And Message To His "Seven (Complete)" Churches. The Message Includes Heavenly Rewards But Also Earthly Sufferings (Revelation 1:1-20; 1 Peter 1:1).
Holy Ghost Sent Down From Heaven- Jesus Christ's Baptism Prophetically Pointed To The "Baptism Of Holy Spirit" Which Is The Raptures Fiery Regeneration. This Holy Spirit Which Came Down As A Dove Immediately Took Jesus Into The Wilderness To Be Tempted (Tribulation) (Matthew 3:11-17; Matthew 4:1-11; Deuteronomy 4:24; Psalm 104:1-5; Matthew 22:30).
End Grace-This Has Been Explained In Above Paragraphs.
1 Peter 1:14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 1 Peter 1:15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 1 Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Holy-Only Holy People Can Enter Heaven (Matthew 5:8; Hebrews 12:14). Godly Holiness Is Equivalent To Obeying Jesus Christ. Christians Must Make Sure That Their Conversation Is Holy (Luke 4:26; John 15:10-15; Exodus 20:1-6).
1 Peter 1:17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning [here] in fear: 1 Peter 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain conversation [received] by tradition from your fathers;
Vain Conversation And Father's Tradition- The Apostle Peter Once Again Tells Christians To Reject The Traditions And Conversations The Centered Around The Mosaic Law Which Was Given To The Fathers (Elders) By Moses (Matthew 15:1-9).
1 Peter 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 1 Peter 1:20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 1 Peter 1:21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. 1 Peter 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, [see that ye] love one another with a pure heart fervently:
Precious Blood Of Grace- Heaven Bound Christians Are Saved Into Heaven Through The Precious Blood Of Jesus Christ And God's Grace (Epheisans 2:5-8; Romans 5:9; 1 John 1:7-10; John 3:16).
Faith And Hope Might Be In God- Heaven Bound Christians Are To Accept The Blood Of Jesus And Forsake The Corruptible Law (1 Peter 1:21).
Purifying Your Souls By Obeying The Truth (Jesus)- Any Servant Of God Who Disobeys Him Will Be Purged (Scattered) Into Obedience (Daniel 11:35; Malachi 3:3-12; Matthew 24:29-34; Luke 3:17; 1 Corinthians 5:7; Matthew 16:11-12; Hebrews 9:14; 1 Corinthians 5:6; Galatians 5:9); John 14:4-7; John 4:24; John 13:33-35).
1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 1 Peter 1:24 For all flesh [is] as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 1 Peter 1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
Born Again-A Truly "Born Again" Person Must Forsake The Corruptible Dark Mosaic Law And Abide Forever In The Light Of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ Is The Word Of The Lord Which Is Holy Spirit. It Is This Word And Not The Mosaic Law Which Endures Forever (John 3:1-16; Exodus 201-6, 21; Exodus 19:9-17; 2 Corinthians 3:1-17; 1 John 1:1-5; John 1:1-20; John 6:63).
The Apostle Peter Connected Obedience To The (Priestly) Mosaic Law With Suffering During The Coming Great Tribulation. May We Forsake The Priestly Linen Of The Mosaic Law And Flee With Jesus Into Heavenly Rapture (Mark 14:51-52; Matthew 24:13-22; Exodus 28:4-31).
