Bible: 2 Pet 1:16-21

1:16 For we did not follow cleverly concocted fables when we made known to you the power and return 1  of our Lord Jesus Christ; 2  no, 3  we were 4  eyewitnesses of his 5  grandeur. 6  1:17 For he received honor and glory from God the Father, when that 7  voice was conveyed to him by the Majestic Glory: “This is my dear Son, in whom I am delighted.” 8  1:18 When this voice was conveyed from heaven, we ourselves 9  heard it, for we were with him on the holy mountain. 10  1:19 Moreover, 11  we 12  possess the prophetic word as an altogether reliable thing. 13  You do well if you pay attention 14  to this 15  as you would 16  to a light shining in a murky place, until the day dawns and the morning star 17  rises in your hearts. 18  1:20 Above all, you do well if you recognize 19  this: 20  No prophecy of scripture ever comes about by the prophet’s own imagination, 21  1:21 for no prophecy was ever borne of human impulse; rather, men 22  carried along by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
