Wesley's Notes for 2 Peter 1:21

1:21 For prophecy came not of old by the will of man - Of any mere man whatever. But the holy men of God - Devoted to him, and set apart by him for that purpose, spake and wrote. Being moved - Literally, carried. They were purely passive therein.

It is as it is written. They were moved by the spirit as they stood.Stand up so I may speak with the. As they stood the spirit moved them in ways that mimic their writing. For instance if you stand up place your feet together then without moving your feet move your body in a circle that 's an O the rest of the letters R made by the movements that correspond to that letter.Being moved by the holy spirit means just that anything else is false. The only way to receive the word of GOD is to be moved by the spirit.

There is a man, Harold Camping. He is the one who "guaranteed" that Jesus was coming back on 21st May 2011. He was wrong, but his followers give him NO blame. He has told them to stay out of churches and to get out if they are currently attending one. After May 21 came and Jesus did not come back, he said Jesus did come in spirit and has gone about judging all the churches and now there is NO more forgiveness and the Holy Spirit has been taken from the Earth. He ignores most bible verses and instead gives his own ideas. His followers are so misled. I cannot get any of them to just believe the Bible, especially when it says that No man knows the hour or day when Jesus returns not even Jesus. But he says that when that verse says “not even the Son of God”, that refers to Satan! What can I say to some friends who call me an "unbeliever" because I do NOT believe on H. Camping? Is this man following Satan and leading people AWAY from God? I think so.

 

Rev. LeeCoy Tobias's comment on 2013-01-30 11:13:23:

True Prophecy can only come by the will and desire of Almighty God through the Holy Spirit; it is not of man’s desire, belief, or will, nor can it ever be.
