Wesley's Notes for 2 Peter 1:19

1:19 And we - St. Peter here speaks in the name of all Christians. Have the word of prophecy - The words of Moses, Isaiah, and all the prophets, are one and the same word, every way consistent with itself. St. Peter does not cite any particular passage, but speaks of their entire testimony. More confirmed - By that display of his glorious majesty. To which word ye do well that ye take heed, as to a lamp which shone in a dark place - Wherein there was neither light nor window. Such anciently was the whole world, except that little spot where this lamp shone. Till the day should dawn - Till the full light of the gospel should break through the darkness. As is the difference between the light of a lamp and that of the day, such is that between the light of the Old Testament and of the New. And the morning star - Jesus Christ, #Rev 22:16|. Arise in your hearts - Be revealed in you.

 

People's Bible Notes for 2 Peter 1:19

2Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy. Prophecy was a sure word, but when fulfilled in Christ and the gospel it seemed more sure. No class of evidence had more power with Jews than to show them that Jesus was the Christ of whom the prophets spoke. Whereunto. To prophecy. Ye do well that ye take heed. Heed its predictions and statements concerning Christ. As unto a light that shineth in a dark place. It was a lamp shining in the darkness of the past and giving some light before the day star arose. Until the day dawn. The full light of the New Testament. And the day-star arise. Christ. See Re 22:16.

Apostle Placid's comment on 2014-05-24 16:48:41:

We don 't need those people who die and come back to scatter the church which Christ has build through His ministers. We can 't believe the word of God then our faith is lie

 

Don Wade's comment on 2012-12-20 12:25:25:

A word of prophecy MORE SURE THAN WHAT? From the context in verses immediately preceding this verse is a declaration that the things being declared are not mere fables - as attested to by the voice of God from the Holy mount - and EVEN MORE SO ["more sure"] by the unfaltering fulfillment of all prophecy. This is God's assurance that He is the only God - Isaiah 46:9-10 KJV, Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, {10} Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.
