And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with Him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye Him. (Mat 17:1-5)
Jesus, the Lord of all, revealed part of His glory to His disciples in this vision of His glorified body and visitation by Moses and Elijah. This precursor to the witnesses of the Tribulation and the Glory that shall be revealed in Christ when He was resurrected gave those who were with them pause for it was beyond their experience. But, when they put Jesus on the same level as Moses and Elijah, who were just men and served the Lord they were meeting with, GOD the Father spoke from Heaven and gave His approval of Jesus and command for us to hear Him.
The words which Moses and Elijah spoke and wrote into Scripture were the Words of the Lord, and those which they would testify during the judgments of the Lord to come would be that which the Lord had spoken. We are to shout from the rooftops what GOD has told us in our devotions, but only the Scriptures, not our private interpretation or hidden meanings that wrest the Scriptures to our own destruction. GOD says what He means, and means what He says, and if there is any confusion, or misunderstanding, of seeming contradiction in the Scriptures, we are to reexamine our study and our understanding, for we are to hear Him.
He speaks and we hear, and our faith grows. He has written, and we read, and are blessed. We seek Him in the pages of Scripture, studying to shew ourselves approved unto GOD, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. We hide His Word in our heart, that we might not sIn against GOD. We think on the things of Scripture, and meditate on all the words therein, that we might know Him and the fellowship of His sufferings. We apply all that He tells us, as we live His life, and He in us, that all may know we are His disciples.
As His disciples, ministers of reconciliation, we minister to the hurting and in need as GOD gives the increase, so others may see Christ in us, the Hope of Glory. We disciple one another in love and in His Word that we may grow thereby and become more like Him. Above all, we proclaim the Good News of forgiveness from GOD by faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary to those who will hear. As we go, we share The Gospel of Jesus Christ: His message of love, mercy and grace to those who hear and believe, that in believing they might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
