The Holy Spirit & Inspiration (2 Peter 1:16-21)Phillip Stuckey, January 23, 2022
Part of the A Study of the Holy Spirit series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
The Bible stresses the need of knowing the Holy Spirit (1 John 4:4-6; Rom. 8:9-11). Last time we considered the impact of the Spirit in the life of the Christian surrounding the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22). Of course, bearing that fruit requires us to heed the teaching of the Spirit found in the Bible. This, of course, leads us to think about the Bible’s inspiration. What is the Spirit’s involvement in inspiration, in God communicating His will to mankind?

2 Peter 1:16–21 (Listen)
16 For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased,” 18 we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain. 19 And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 20 knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. 21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
