As I add new translations to the BHT, I thought it would be good to also publish a blog post noting each specific addition, so that you may know about those updates.
The following is a translation today of 2 Peter 1:19-21, which concerns the scriptures and prophetic revelation and interpretation of the Word.
19 And because of this experience we are sure in knowing the thoughts of God, through prophecy, which is our coming into the consciousness of God, and it would be beautiful if you brought your own mind into that same consciousness. This consciousness is like a light that shines in the dark night of the soul, and continues shining until the morning breaks and the Bright Sunlight of Christ Consciousness arises in your heart, mind, and soul.
20 Here is the main point that you should know: no true prophecy of the Holy Word comes from one’s own egoic intellectual interpretation in the human mind, from the “natural man’s” rational translation and logical explanation.
21 No true prophecy has ever come to a human through their own egoic will, through their typical mental faculties and drives. But rather Holy people spoke in God’s voice only as they were brought into oneness with God’s consciousness, even as they were carried into it and inspired by the Spirit of God’s Being deep within themselves.
