A GLIMPSE OF THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM, ECWA DEVOTIONAL
WEDNESDAY, 5 AUGUST
TEXT: MARK 9: 2 – 10
TOPIC: A GLIMPSE OF THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM
This passage is the actual fulfillment of the Lord’s statement of Mark 9:1. It states that, just after Christ led Peter, James and John to the mountain, the Lord had a heavenly revelation for them. The mountain experience was a special revelation of the heavenly nature. Indeed, it was a glimpse of heaven! Christ was transfigured into a glorious body and a cloud overshadowed them. Then they heard a voice from heaven which God declared Christ as the Beloved Son who should be listened to! That was a great moment the three disciples would never forget. No wonder, John later stated that what he saw, heard and touched with their hands (1 John 1:1). Peter was so happy that he forgot the remaining disciples at the foot of the mountain in his attempt to make the top of the mountain their permanent residence. We also have a great hope of being with the Lord Jesus Christ.
QUESTION: Are you happy as you look ahead to the glorious celebration with the Lord?
PRAYER: Lord, lead us to start celebrating Your second coming from today, Amen!
