Bible: 2 Pet 1:17-21

1:17 For he received honor and glory from God the Father, when that 1  voice was conveyed to him by the Majestic Glory: “This is my dear Son, in whom I am delighted.” 2  1:18 When this voice was conveyed from heaven, we ourselves 3  heard it, for we were with him on the holy mountain. 4  1:19 Moreover, 5  we 6  possess the prophetic word as an altogether reliable thing. 7  You do well if you pay attention 8  to this 9  as you would 10  to a light shining in a murky place, until the day dawns and the morning star 11  rises in your hearts. 12  1:20 Above all, you do well if you recognize 13  this: 14  No prophecy of scripture ever comes about by the prophet’s own imagination, 15  1:21 for no prophecy was ever borne of human impulse; rather, men 16  carried along by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
