Msg #1826 A More Sure Word

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

When the Apostle Peter writes “We have also a more sure word of prophecy” (2Peter 1:19) comprehend what he is saying. Peter was an eyewitness of Christ's majesty (vr.16). He was present and saw with his own eyes when Christ “received from God the Father honour and glory.” There on that mount of transfiguration they saw “The Son of man coming in his Kingdom” (Matthew 16:28). Peter, James, and John saw Moses and Elias talking with Christ, the only begotten Son of God. “His face did shine as the sun, and his raiment as white as the light” (17:2). Then Peter heard out of the bright cloud that overshadowed them, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him” (vr.5). But now, in the close of Peter's ministry, he writes that, concerning the power and coming of our Lord Jesus, we have a more sure word of prophecy. The Holy-Bible we hold in our hand is a more sure word of prophecy concerning the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ than is the eyewitness of Peter who saw all these things. At the time of Peter's writing twenty-two of the twenty-seven books of the New Testament had been penned. These and all thirty-nine in the Old Testament were perfect inerrant, infallible, verbally inspired writings of God, and Peter declares it so with the label “more sure prophecy.” He goes on to say, “Where unto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.” Don't let the ecumenical modernists tell you there is no inerrant, inspired Bible today. Hold your Holy-Bible close, it is a more sure word of prophecy than Peter in person.
