Video: God's Word: So inspiring! (2 Peter 1: 20-21)

The Very Words of God: In Sync! 

2 Peter 1: 20-21 (NLT)

Above all, you must realize that no prophecy in Scripture ever came from the prophet's own understanding, or from human initiative. No, those prophets were moved by the Holy Spirit, and they spoke from God.

Can we trust God's Word? Is it only a bunch of mish mashed pieces of words from contemplative old men of antiquity that got strung together for good advice? 

The Word of God is not just a bunch of wise sayings. It is the very word of God. The Holy Spirit moved men of God, men who heard the whisper of God in their ears, their heart, and their very soul to write down their story, and what God had for His people to know. He used these people to write down words that are surprizingly in sync with each other through centuries and across cultures.

The Bible was written over a period of 1400 years with over 40 different authors who came from a variety of backgrounds. Some were prophets and priests. But others came from a background like a tax collector, a doctor, shepherds and more! 

See how this process is decribed in 2 Peter 1:20-21.
