2 Peter 1:21
21 For [gar] the prophecy [propheteia] came [phero] not [ou] in old time [pote] by the
will [thelema] of man [anthropos]: but [alla] holy [hagios] men [anthropos] of God [theos] spake [laleo] as they were
moved [phero] by [hupo] the Holy [hagios] Ghost [pneuma]. KJV-Interlinear
21 for no prophecy was ever made
by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.NASB
Prophecy is typically
thought to be divine revelation or foretelling, of some future event.But this word is a more general definition
for all information which comes from God.Not only does prophecy originate from God, but all doctrine, comes from
In every other
religion, whether Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, or other more recent cults or
systems of philosophies, in all of them, their doctrines originated from mans
imagination and invention, and therefore contain no truths within them.
Anything that is not
founded in truth, is a lie, and therefore false, deceitful, misleading, and
All scripture is God
breathed, and therefore has no taint within it from mans interference,
writings, bogus interpretations and so forth.
So how do we sort it all
Well, in Gods mechanism
for learning doctrine, ie. confession leading to residence in fellowship, and
therefore placement of your soul under the control of the Holy Spirit, then all
information is sorted out by the Holy Spirit, and made discernable and clear to
This is not an
emotional event.You cannot feel or
sense in any way, the presence, or indwelling of the Holy Spirit within
you.Likewise, since you are indwelled
by all three members of the Godhead, you cannot sense, feel, detect, or have
any overt or mental sensation of their presence, and yet they are present
within you, and have been ever since you believed in Christ.
When you have the time,
you might review the study on Bible Blessings in the Special Studies section.It is a lengthy list.
All scripture, all
prophecy, all information of divine nature, came from God, revealed to men, and
then subsequently written down by man for mans inculcation and growth.
The Holy Spirit sorts
out all truth and all falsities.With
repeated study, you will, sooner or later, begin to understand what is the
truth and what is the lie, what is the clear path to spiritual success and what
is fad or marketing schemes.
history have used the name of God, to advance their causes.Wars have been fought, schemes have been
unleashed, policies have been established, laws have been set, in order to
obtain some political, religious, or tyrannical end.This does not mean that God has authorized
any of them.
Only doctrine in your
soul, obtained from a consistent and daily study, will help you to sort out the
truth from the lies and games that people play when they use religion to
without the Holy Spirit sorting things out for you, you would never know what
was right verses what was wrong in life.
Witch burnings would seem
perfectly fine.Terrorist suicides would
seem reasonable.Stealing could be
rationalized if it were only from the rich.In fact, anything that you can imagine as a standard for social conduct,
could be adopted and made to be right.
But truth separates out
the lies and makes life clear and discernable.And more than that, truth reveals the repercussions of every thought or
So, if you think you
can get through life, by making up your own rules, by modifying Gods mandates,
principles, rules for life, then you are totally wrong.
Though truth covers a
broad spectrum of life, it is nonetheless rigid and unbending in its content
Only the non-truths of
this world seek to modify truth and introduce and legitimize components of sin
into its midst.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
