Our final passage covering the context of Scripture is found in 2 Peter 1:20-21.
“But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:20-21).
This is a beautiful, even poetic passage which once again affirms the divine origin of what has come to be known to us as the Bible.
Once again, through the hands of Peter we are to understand that the instruction of Scripture was not the wild convention of ideology from the human mind. This is a valid reminder to counter assault that such a subjective contrivance would be of little value or authority to the benefit of mankind.
Rather, these human agents were utilized to pen these words given by God’s Spirit. The imagery is clear … The words emanate from God’s Holy Spirit and are “moving” men to scribe His will. The words evoke and are meant to evoke a nautical picture, a picture of sails, being yielded to the winds, the breath of God, and filled which propels the hand to convey the will, the instruction of God.
