2 Peter 1:16-21 - The Reliable Prophetic Word Of Testimony
16 For they were no fictitious stories that we followed when we informed you of the power of our Lord Jesus Christ and of his coming, but we had been eye-witnesses of his majesty. 17 For when he was so honored and glorified by God the Father and from the supreme glory there were borne to him such words as these: "This is my Son, my Beloved! He is my Chosen!"??18 we heard these words borne from heaven when we were with him on that sacred mountain. 19 So we have the message of the prophets more fully guaranteed. Please pay attention to that message as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 You must understand this in the first place, that no prophecy in Scripture can be understood through one's own powers, 21 for no prophecy ever originated in the human will, but under the influence of the holy Spirit men spoke for God.
