Being an Eyewitness (Part 6) (2 Peter 1:16-21)Tommy Boring, December 20, 2015
Part of the 2 Peter 1 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Everyone has opinions but when it come to God's, ours simply do not matter. Some of us had great examples of what a Christian was to be but that doesn't mean they were gospel. Just because the preacher says it doesn't mean it's the truth. Only the gospel, the Word of God is the truth. In biblical times there were eyewitnesses that seen Jesus perform. Today we only have God's spirit that lives inside us that bares witness. One can only speak about their own experience with Christ. One does not know another's experience or if there ever was one. The one thing that a saved person can not do is to deny Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is not just a fable or a story that's shared, it the gospel and it's the only way that you can be saved. If you are not positive that a pastor is not saved, you better find another one. If they are not saved how can they know what they are preaching? Just because a person has the worldly teaching or a degree doesn't mean they have been saved by God. The bible is not simply a letter or a newspaper, it's a living, breathing, book of life. How is the Word of God meaningful to you? Because God has declared us all a sinner and a sinner will live eternally in hell unless they are saved. In the last days people will want teachers to simply entertainment them, not wanting to be told they are wrong.

2 Peter 1:16-21
16For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 18And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. 19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (KJV)
