Bible: 2 Peter 1:13-19

1:13 Indeed, as long as I am in this tabernacle, 1  I consider it right to stir you up by way of a reminder, 1:14 since I know that my tabernacle will soon be removed, 2  because 3  our Lord Jesus Christ revealed this to me. 4  1:15 Indeed, I will also make every effort that, after my departure, you have a testimony of these things. 5 

1:16 For we did not follow cleverly concocted fables when we made known to you the power and return 6  of our Lord Jesus Christ; 7  no, 8  we were 9  eyewitnesses of his 10  grandeur. 11  1:17 For he received honor and glory from God the Father, when that 12  voice was conveyed to him by the Majestic Glory: “This is my dear Son, in whom I am delighted.” 13  1:18 When this voice was conveyed from heaven, we ourselves 14  heard it, for we were with him on the holy mountain. 15  1:19 Moreover, 16  we 17  possess the prophetic word as an altogether reliable thing. 18  You do well if you pay attention 19  to this 20  as you would 21  to a light shining in a murky place, until the day dawns and the morning star 22  rises in your hearts. 23
