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

  You Who are kept The inheritance is secure as long as we are secure. And how are we “kept”?   By the power of God The result is salvation. How does it come? “Through faith.” So we don’t get the power without the faith, and without the power, we lose the salvation which is the inheritance v9. See the same idea at ep0208.
  Salvation ready We must continually watch and pray mt2641. This keeps the faith channel open.   Revealed in the last time How is salvation thus revealed? The Lord, speaking through Malachi, says that, on a certain day, the faithful ones will be His. He has looked at the record books. See mal0316 and also the verse that follows it.   Last time At the time the preadvent judgment ends, human probation ends re2211, and Jesus comes in glory re2212.
 6 ¶ Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: .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:   Trial of your faith A challenge to our faith, the channel of grace, v5. Trial is real. It is hardship. It means loss of financial support, loss of people we love, oppression, and so on. How is it a blessing?   Gold that perisheth Gold is chemically very stable but it can be stolen. Its value can be lost by using it selfishly.   Found unto praise … at the appearing This points to the “last time” of v5.
 8  Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: .9  Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.   Not seen … love We think of Thomas jn2024 but it’s easy and common for this love to be theoretical.
.10 ¶ Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come
