By examining verses in the books written by Peter, it can be determined that his writing is to the believing remnant of Israel, not to the church, the body of Christ.

1 Peter 1:1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,

 Israel was referred to as strangers when they were in Egypt in Exodus 22:21. The Lord called them strangers in Leviticus 25:23. Gentiles were called strangers, because they were not of the house of Israel (Leviticus 17:8).

 Israel rebelled against the Lord and would not walk in his statutes, neither would they keep his judgements, so the Lord purposed to scatter them through the countries in Ezekiel 20:21-23 (Psalm 44:11).

 The believing remnant of Israel was also scattered in Acts 8:1.

 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

 Peter says the remnant of Israel has been begotten again by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Israel could have the firm hope that Christ was raised from the dead to sit on the throne of David in the kingdom on earth (Acts 2:30 Luke 1:32-33).

 The remnant of Israel was promised to reign with Christ over the nations when Christ comes to establish his kingdom on earth (Exodus 19:5-6 Isaiah 61:6 Isaiah 60:3).

 Israel was the firstborn of God (Exodus 4:22), and to enter the kingdom, Israel had to be born again of the Spirit (John 3:3-5).

 1:5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

 For the remnant of Israel, salvation will be revealed at the last time, after the tribulation period, at the coming of Christ. They however, had to be steadfast, and endure til the end (Acts 3:21 Hebrews 3:14 Mark 13:13).

 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

 Israel will be tried by fire, and refined, to be purified and prepared for the coming of Christ (Isaiah 48:10 Malachi 3:2-3 Zechariah 13:7-9 Matthew 3:11).

 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

 If the remnant remained faithful until the end, they would inherit the promise of the kingdom (Hebrews 10:36-39 Luke 21:19).

 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

 At the revelation of Christ, at his coming, Israel will receive salvation. Israel will receive grace by the fulfillment of the new covenant. Under the new covenant, God will, by his Spirit, cause Israel to keep the law for righteousness, give them the promised land, and forgive their iniquity (Zechariah 12:10 Romans 11:26 Jeremiah 31:31-34 Deuteronomy 30:5-9 Ezekiel 36:24-28).

 Peter preached unto Israel, to repent, and be converted, that their sins would be blotted out, at the coming of Christ Jesus (Acts 3:19). Israel, as a nation, had to wait until the coming of Christ to realize forgiveness.

 1:17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

 Peter, in Acts 10:34-35 says, that whoever works righteousness is accepted of God. Peter, in the above verse, is saying to the remnant, that their works would be judged to determine entrance into the kingdom on earth (Psalm 103:17-18).

 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

 Once again, Peter speaks of being born again, which pertains to Israel. Israel as a nation, was born of God (Exodus 4:22 Jeremiah 31:9). Jews were born of flesh as Israel but, had to be born again of the Spirit, to be the Israel of God, the Israel of faith (John 3:6-7 Romans 9:6-8 Galatians 6:16).

 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

 Peter says the remnant are lively stones, which should be compared to Matthew 3:9, in which, Israel was admonished not to think that just because they had Abraham as their father, they were accepted of God.

 The remnant of Israel would be the holy priesthood according to Exodus 19:5-6, Revelation 5:10, and Revelation 20:6.

 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

 Christ was to be received by Israel as the chief corner stone according to Psalm 118:22 (Isaiah 28:16 Romans 9:31-33 Matthew 21:42). The remnant of Israel believed on Christ Jesus.

 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

 It was the Israel of faith that received Jesus as Messiah, the Son of God, who are a royal priesthood, an holy nation. The earthly kingdom was taken from unbelieving Israel, and given to believing Israel, as seen in Matthew 21:43 (Isaiah 61:6 Psalm 33:12 Genesis 12:2).

 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

 God said of the believing remnant of Israel, they are now the people of God (Hosea 1:9-11 and Hosea 2:23).

 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

 2:12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

 Peter, as in 1 Peter 1:1, appeals to the remnant as strangers, and futher identifies the audience of his epistles as Israel, by differentiating it from the Gentiles (Romans 2:24).

I strongly disagree and have shown you where you have crossed the line between what the Lord has said in His book (the Bible) and what your are trying to spread around out of words that did not come from Jesus.

I hope that others see your teaching for what it is and stray away from it.


1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
