For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His Majesty. For He received from GOD the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to Him from the excellent glory, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with Him in the holy mount. We have also a more sure Word of prophecy; whereunto 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: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of GOD spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2Pe 1:16-21)
Forty authors from various walks of life and backgrounds, all with one thing in common, they were obedient servants of the Most High GOD, who transmitted His Words through their writings, and preserved them along the way, that we would have His Word just as He promised. The Word which reveals Jesus Christ, as our Creator, our Redeemer, and our King. The Word which reveals the work of GOD in love, in judgment, in mercy and grace, and in justice and correction. The Word that tells the beginning to the end, from the first Hallelujah, where the angels rejoiced in His perfect creation to the last Amen, when Christ has consummated all things. The Word that tells us of our sin and rebellion, the destruction of the world in Noah's day, and the confusion of languages at the tower of Babel, also tells of God's plan to save those who will come to Him in surrender to Him on His terms, Jew and Gentile, whom He is redeeming through His Son and their faith in Him and His finished work on the Cross of Calvary for sin and Salvation.
We, the people of GOD, His ministers and ambassadors are to take the Word of reconciliation, the word of comfort, and the word of righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, to those around us who are hurting and in need. The family of GOD, adopted into the fellowship of the saints, though strangers here in this world, are to love one another and disciple one another in His Word that we may grow thereby, fully equipped, encouraged, edified, and empowered to do His will and accomplish His work of ministry and missions, discipleship and mentoring, and reaching the lost of this broken and sinful world that they might be saved. For GOD has also commissioned His church, His body, the host of the Lord, to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Word of God to all nations, and as we go in the power of the Holy Spirit proclaiming to all who will hear the Good News of forgiveness of sin through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in Him that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
