Jesus was transfigured!

In Mark 9:1 Jesus said, "Assuredly, I say to you that there are some standing here who will not taste death till they see the kingdom of God present with power.

Now six days later, Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up on a high mountain to pray; and He was transfigured before them. 

He took Peter, James, and John as eyewitnesses; to observe and record the transfiguration.

So as he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white, and suddenly, two men appeared, Moses and Elijah were talking with him. Luke 9:31 says, "They appeared in glory and were speaking of his departure, which he was about to accomplish in Jerusalem."

And a cloud came and overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!

Suddenly the disciples, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus. As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. So they kept this word to themselves, questioning what the rising from the dead meant.

Later on after Jesus had risen from the dead Apostle Peter wrote, "we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount." 2 Peter 1:16-18.

Now, the transfiguration happened to confirm Peter’s great confession, "Thou art the Christ" Mark 8:29.

Earlier he had asked his disciples, "Whom do men say that I am?" "And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets." Mark 8:28. "And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.

Now the transfiguration happened to clear the air, and Elijah and Moses appeared representing the Prophets and the Law, talking with Jesus of how he would be glorified, and a voice coming out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!

With all that said and done, Peter, James, and John, saw or witnessed the Kingdom of God arrive in great power at the mount of transfiguration.

God bless,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

The Great Flood

May the LORD say to you, " Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation, " Genesis 7:1. Yes, may it become true of you that you are righteous, right standing before Him in this generation. If it’s the case, The LORD will shut you in, He will spread his royal pavilion over you. David says, " For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock, " Psalm 27:5.  My friend, you need the Lord like never before, to hide you when all living things around you are destroyed by this great flood, this pandemic of our time. But like Noah, remain alive in the ark my friend. Similar Posts  Let there be light The history of creation Life in God’s garden Trees are good Where is your brother?

The sons of God saw the daughters of men

God created man, both male and female he created them; he first formed man, Adam, " of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being, " Genesis 2:7. Secondly, the LORD God said, " It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him, " Genesis 2:18. The LORD then caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, " and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: "This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man, " Genesis 2:21-23. I hear Paul say, " For man is not from woman, but woman from man, " 1 Corinthians 11:8. And Moses says man are sons of God, and women are daughters of men. Eve when she conceived and bore Cain, she said, " I have acquired a
