The light that shines in a dark place.

The light that shines in a dark place.

16 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables, when we made known
unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were
eyewitnesses of his majesty.
17 For he received from God the Father honor
and glory, when there was borne such a voice to him by the Majestic
Glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased:
18 and this
voice we ourselves heard borne out of heaven, when we were with him in
the holy mount.
19 And we have the word of prophecy made more sure; whereunto ye do
well that ye take heed, as unto a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day
dawn, and the day-star arise in your hearts:
20 knowing this first, that no
prophecy of scripture is of private interpretation.
21 For no prophecy ever
came by the will of man: but men spake from God, being moved by the
Holy Spirit.
8 Look to yourselves, that ye lose not the things which we have
wrought, but that ye receive a full reward.
9 Whosoever goeth onward and
abideth not in the teaching of Christ, hath not God: he that abideth in the
teaching, the same hath both the Father and the Son.
10 If any one cometh unto you, and bringeth not this teaching, receive him
not into your house, and give him no greeting:
11 for he that giveth him
greeting partaketh in his evil works.
