1 Day is like 1,000 Years

2 Peter 2:9, “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” Peter is not adding years to creation rather he used a figure of speech known as a simile to compare a day to a thousand years. IOW, all things past, present, and future, are ever before God: the delay of a thousand years cannot be so much to Him, as putting off any thing for a day or for an hour is to us. Essentially God is giving us more time to get our lives in order so that we may bring Him Glory before His 2nd coming!
