Luke-A glimpse of Glory

A Glimpse of Glory   Luke 9:27  But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.  

This was spoken over two thousand years ago. Some refer to this verse to prove the Bible to not be the truth. The Bible is all true.  

2 Pet 3:3  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2 Pet 3:4  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

Here is the coming of the kingdom of heaven in the glorified Christ. Remember that Jesus brought the kingdom of heaven with him, the presence of God with man.   Mat

12:28  But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

Luke 9:28  And it cameto pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.  

Some of them will see the kingdom of heaven, the glorified Lord Jesus Christ and the living of those who were from the past.

Luke 9:29  And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.  

Before their eyes they see the brightness of his glory. Jesus has prayed that we shall be with him forever, to see him as he is. Jesus came to complete the redemption of those who by faith receive the promise of eternal life in glory with him. Meditate on these things.  

John 17:24  Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Luke 9:30  And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:  

Moses and Elijah, the law giver and the beloved prophet of God, standing before him, alive, alive forevermore. A proof of our eternal life in Christ Jesus. They are not dead. There is no death for those who trust in Jesus. We receive a new glorified body. God is the God of the living!  

Mark 12:26  And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?

Mark 12:27  He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.

Luke 9:31  Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.  

Moses and Elijah knew. They knew that Jesus must shed his blood, to fulfill the promise they had received by faith.  

Mat 26:28  For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.  

 The communion wine,a picture of the shed blood of Jesus Christ which was shed for all; Moses, Elijah, the old testament saints, and Jew and Gentile believers then, now and in the future. The blood is the power for our deliverance, from sin and the devil, to righteousness and eternal life. He would accomplish this in Jerusalem, the holy city of God.   Moses and Elijah speak these things before his disciples; Peter and John and James. They saw the kingdom of God and we have received the witness; Jesus is Lord and our savior.

As I wrote this, three Jehovah's witnesses came to the door. One was a small boy. They did not understand God's kingdom. I began to show them their error and to open the truth from the Bible. Jesus shall rule with God in the kingdom of heaven.   

Rev 22:3  And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 

 They turned away and left. Will you leave Jesus for another belief?
