2 Peter 1:19 So we have the prophetic message more fully confirmed. You will do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. * * * * * * * The prophetic message is the eye witness accounts of the words and actions of Jesus. This testimony comes to us from ancient stories told from person to person, written on scrolls, reprinted and bound as a book, translated and retranslated over the years. We have all known or still know the loneliness of doubt and the paralyzing nature of fear. Our head does what it can to take in the stories and use the senses of what can be seen and heard to hold our reluctant souls through the dark night until the morning star nudges our hearts to warm us back to life. * * * * * * * With head and heart, we move with faith. Amen.
