Read the complete passage
think about it.
What goes into your life to help you be fruitful and effective as a believer (1:3-8)? Where does the prophetic word come from and why (1:16-21)? How does this encourage you to study Bible prophecy?
The Bible isn't a compilation of made-up stories and predictions put together by a handful of men. Instead, it is the account of eyewitnesses to Jesus (people who were there and saw what happened) and not only that, but were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the message God wanted shared. Peter lays this out pretty clearly in 2 Peter 1:12-21. What a good and helpful reminder for us of the origin and reliability of every single word of the Bible.
So what confidence does 2 Peter 1:12-21 give us? How can you use or what are you going to do with this passage this week? Tami W.
