“For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made know unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty…We have a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shinneth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts” (II Peter 1:16, 19).
First we see Peter declaring that the message he brought was not like the fables produced by men—no fables. We note that there are many warning given concerning false prophets and their message. We then see that Peter presented on an eyewitness account. And then we consider what they heard. So why would you believe a fable or seek some unknown power when we have the testimony of an eyewitness of the glory of Jesus Christ and that He is the Son of God. We have a sure word that we can rely on.
