1 Peter 1:13-16 Gird Up the Loins of Your Mind--hope to the End for the Grace--at The Revelation of Jesus Christ--Be Ye Holy; For I Am Holy

 

1 Peter 1:13-16 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation [Apokalupsis: removal of a covering or veil] of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation [every aspect of your life]; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

The battle is over the mind.  The enemy of our souls desires to keep control of our minds.  Our old Adam, that carnal mind that we all have, has it's own lusts, desires.  We want what we want.  We want to do things our own way.  We want to do our own thing.  We are dull of hearing because we don't really want to give up our own will.  Peter asks us to gird up the loins of our minds.  He says to be sober, that is, be serious about this.  He asks up to hope to the end.   This is not an "I hope so" hope.  This is true hope.  True hope seed that vision that comes from the throne of God, not a vision out of our own hearts, our own minds.  The grace, that free gift of freedom from sin, righteousness, holiness, redemption, and all the rest of what God freely gives, is brought to us now as Jesus is revealed from our innermost being, since we have received Him and He lives in our hearts.  When He does His work through us, He is unveiled.  Submission to the Spirit of God is what is needed so that the grace of God can do His work in us rather than us fashioning ourselves according to our former desires.  This will make us holy by the washing of regeneration.  It will be from glory to glory, and line on line and precept on precept.

Apocalypse (two Greek words, apokalupsis, and apokalupto meaning approximately the same thing) Literally, it means the removal of a covering or a veil. God often provides the interpretation of Scripture within Scripture. There is one Scripture that gives us the key to the word, veil. Hebrew 10:19-20 says, Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
