2 Peter 1:19

"And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts." NIV translation

Peter reminds us that the Old Testament prophets spoke about things that had not yet been seen but he was an eyewitness to many of the events that they spoke about. It is a time of darkness in the world right now but Jesus is the bright morning star. In nature, the morning star follows after a night of darkness and appears just before the dawning of a new day.

2 Peter 1:20

"Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit." NIV translation

Biblical prophecy does not come from man but from God speaking to the hearts of men. It is not about what the man wants but is simply delivering a message that God has for a person or persons.
