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, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. 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. (2 Peter 1:19-21 ESV)
И притом мы имеем вернейшее пророческое слово; и вы хорошо делаете, что обращаетесь к нему, как к светильнику, сияющему в темном месте, доколе не начнет рассветать день и не взойдет утренняя звезда в сердцах ваших, зная прежде всего то, что никакого пророчества в Писании нельзя разрешить самому собою. Ибо никогда пророчество не было произносимо по воле человеческой, но изрекали его святые Божии человеки, будучи движимы Духом Святым.(2-e Петра 1:19-21 Russian)
O LORD my God ~ thank you, dear Heavenly Father, for the wonders of your great love for all people in the world – even those who refuse to acknowledge your existence. Lord, open the eyes of faith to people who live in spiritual darkness without the hope that comes from knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Restore wholehearted respect for the Scriptures, so that people will seize this time of not having or even allowed to do their normal jobs and become serious students of your precious message that is for all people in the world. Snuff out the influence of those false leaders who throw cold water on the final authority of your Word. Cut off their voices so that young people will be able to grow up with deep respect for the Bible as the source of truth, faith, hope and love and all things that are of the utmost importance in this life in good times and bad. We fervently pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
