                    A.        So

1.    we have the prophetic word

                                                    a.        made more sure,

                                                    b.        to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place,

                                                                     I.        until

                                                                                     I.        the day dawns and

                                                                                   II.        the morning star arises in your hearts.

2.    But

                                                    a.        know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation,

                                                    b.        for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will,

                                                                     I.        but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
