II Peter 1:16-21. – 16For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased,” 18we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on(G) the holy mountain. 19And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, 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, 20knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. 21For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Peter saw Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration talking to Moses and Elijah regarding His work of death and resurrection and then he tells us that we have a “more sure word” of prophecy – the Scriptures. The Scriptures are a more sure word than seeing Jesus talking face to face with Moses and Elijah. The hunt/wish/prayer for something “more” is foolhardy at best. God has already given us what is better than the very things we wish we had. The Word of God is better than a vision, a visitation from heaven, a dream, a voice etc. It is a great treasure of truth from God to His people. It is a marvelous privilege to be able to hear from God in His Word. Read the Book and marvel at its treasure. It is no wonder that countless thousands of Christians have died throughout the centuries for the sake of thie communication from God to us.
