2 Peter 1:12-21 - Salvation Based On The Word Of God

12 Wherefore I will not neglect to put you always in mind of these things, though ye know them, and are established in the present truth. 13 And I think it my duty, while I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by way of remembrance: 14 knowing that I must soon lay down this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. 15 And I will endeavour that after my departure also ye may always be able to call these things to remembrance.

16 For we did not follow artfully devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; but were eye-witnesses of his majesty. 17 For He received from God the Father honor and glory when a voice came to Him from the magnificent glory, saying, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

18 And this voice, from heaven we heard, when we were with Him in the holy mount. 19 We have also the more sure word of the prophets, to which ye do well to attend, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, till the day dawn, and the morning-star rise in your hearts: 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of private interpretation; 21 for prophecy was not delivered of old at the will of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the holy Spirit.
