2 Peter 2 : 16-19
16 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty.
17 For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
18 And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.
19 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts;
What a wonderful truth the apostle Peter is passing on to us here. He who puts his
trust in our Lord Jesus Christ and in His Word alone has something far better than
the “cunningly devised fables” that are so numerous today. Peter heard the voice of
God the Father as He expressed His pleasure concerning His Beloved Son. This was in
complete harmony with the prophecy in God’s Word, for from the beginning Biblical
prophecy knows only one subject, namely, the coming in glory of the Man in God’s
image and in God’s likeness.
Every biblical prophecy in one way or another sheds light on the coming in glory of that Son of God, Who is also Son of man. The very solid prophetic word gives us clear insight into God’s Plan and the way in which He reveals Himself through time and makes a new creation. It provides a very reliable insight into the past, present and future. A believer does well to let this light shine into his heart by paying attention to the prophecies in the Bible.
