“Jesus Tells All” sounds like the title of a supermarket checkout line tabloid. While it’s true that all of Scriptures testify about our Lord Jesus, the account of the Transfiguration from the Matthew 17 is the perfect way to end the Epiphany season.
The veiled gospel that the Apostle Paul was talking about isn’t difficult to find or understand. It is veiled by the god of this world – the devil. There are many different angles of attack for him. In our message this Sunday we looked at the causes of spiritual blindness and how God reveals the light of salvation.
I know my sheep and my sheep know me.” Jesus is our Good Shepherd and we find protection and provision under his care. Because of Easter, there is No Fear under the Good Shepherd.
How do you never forget something? There is a science to memory. God created us so that it is possible to burn images, feelings, and events into our minds. Transfiguration was one of those events. For the Apostles who witnessed Jesus glory on this side of the grave they were never the same. This week we behold Jesus in all his glory before starting our journey to the cross during the season of Lent.
Can you imagine God in all his glory? I was recently blinded by the sun while driving and didn’t enjoy it. Blinding light is painful. Why do we need to see Jesus in all his glory a few days before Lent? Because spending time focusing on our sin can be a dark experience. Can our God handle the worst we can throw at him? Watch to find out!
