2 Pet. 1:12 Therefore I will be ready always to remind you concerning these things, even though you know them and have been established in the present truth.

2 Pet. 1:12 Therefore I will be ready always to remind you concerning these things, even though you know them and have been established in the present truth. (Holy Bible, Recovery Version)

In 2 Peter 1:12 the present truth can also be rendered “the up-to-date truth”. Although all the truths are in the Bible, through man’s foolishness, unfaithfulness, negligence, and disobedience many truths were lost and hidden from man (cf. 2 Kings 22:8). Freshly revealed truths are not God’s new inventions; rather, they are man’s new discoveries; every worker of the Lord should inquire before God as to what the present truth is. God’s truths are cumulative; later truths do not negate former ones; what we see today are the cumulative revelations of God. May God be gracious to us that we do not become the castaways of “the present truth”; may we be watchful, and may we not allow the flesh to come in or the self to gain any ground.
