Text: 2 Peter 1:16-21; Daniel 9: 10.
“Knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the Will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit,” (verses 20-21). Peter is telling us that the prophetic testimony in Scripture comes from God. All prophecy is of divine origin, a revelation of the mind of God. The prophets spoke and wrote what was the mind of God. Therefore the Word of God has authority of God Himself. You must obey it.
Reflect on verses 20-21, how do these verses encourage you? How are you going to apply verse 19 to your life?
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, thank You for the Word of truth You have given me. Help me to always obey it. Amen.
