5 [a]Which are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation, which is prepared to be showed in the [b]last time.
6 Wherein ye rejoice, though now for a season (if need require) ye are in heaviness, through manifold tentations,
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perisheth (though it be tried with fire) might be found unto your praise, and honor and glory at the [c]appearing of Jesus Christ:
1 Peter 1:5Now he showeth by what way we come unto that glory, to wit, through all kinds of afflictions, wherein notwithstanding faith maketh us so secure, that we are not only not overcome with sorrow, but also through the beholding of God himself (who otherwise is invisible) with the eyes of faith are unspeakably joyful: because all such things, as they are but for a time, so are they not applied unto us to destroy us, but as it were by fire to purge us, and to make us perfect, that at the length we may obtain salvation.
1 Peter 1:5This is that time which Daniel calleth the time of the end, when as that great restoring of all things shall be, which all creatures look for. Rom. 8:19.
