II Peter 2:4-10 NKJV
4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;
5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people , a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly;
6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly;
7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked
8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)
9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment,
10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries,
The lord knows how to deliver the righteous and He knows how to spare them from the coming punishment or destruction. Noah was not destroyed in the flood because he is a righteous man, Lot was not destroyed in Sodom and Gomorrah's destruction because he was righteous.
The Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness. Let us do all within our reach to stay righteous, this is all we can do to please the Lord.
Have a wonderful week
