2 Peter 1

2 Peter 1:20
No prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation.

The Word of God is not private property, rather it’s public domain. We can’t hang a ‘no trespassing’ sign on any interpretation of Scripture. All interpretation belongs to one and all. So, beware of anyone who comes to you saying, “I’ve cracked the code. I’ve got the secret sauce.” No one has a corner on the market. We all know in part, and prophesy in part. No one has the entire picture. That’s why biblical interpretation is best done in community. Not one pastor; not one church; not one denomination; not one country; not one period of history owns the key. We all have access to the truth of God’s word and we will all get through together.
