“[Jesus] received honor and glory from God the Father when that voice
was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, saying, ‘This is my beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased.’ And this voice we heard coming out of heaven
when we were with him on the holy mountain. And yet, we have
a more certain prophetic word, to which you do well to give heed,
as to a light shining in a gloomy place, until the day breaks
and the Morning Star rises in your hearts.”
What could be more certain than hearing God’s own voice coming out of heaven? Hearing God’s voice coming out of you! When the holy Ghost comes into your mortal body and moves you to speak, that is more certain than hearing God’s voice coming from anywhere else! And we would all do well to give heed to that, just as our brother Peter said.
