Writing today from Gardiner, MT

As the offer was made by Jesus to the nation of Israel to repent, believe in Him and receive the Kingdom, few listened to or understood His words. The disciples themselves struggled to grasp the meaning and timing of the Kingdom.

At the Transfiguration, Jesus showed His glory and what it would be like in the Kingdom, but the response from the disciples was not belief, but fear.  When Jesus told of His resurrection, the disciples were “sorrowful,” and “did not understand.” Much was “hidden from them so that they did not perceive it.”

The future is not revealed completely to us either–it is progressively illuminated.  As each day passes and knowledge increases, we begin to see and understand the relation of the Second Coming of our Lord and the world events surrounding us.  “For now we see in a mirror dimly.”

Read Matthew 17:1-27; Mark 9:1-50; Luke 9:28-62
