1 Peter 1:11; 1 Peter 4:13; 1 Peter 5:1; 1 Peter 5:9
trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.
But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.
To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder, a witness of Christ's sufferings and one who also will share in the glory to be revealed:
Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
