293 - The transfiguration

Kathleen's thoughts

Matthew 16: 21-28, 17: 1-21
Mark 8: 27-38, 9:1 -13
Luke 9: 18-36

Peter's declaration Who do people say that I am?" They answered Him, "John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, one of the prophets" But you He ask them again, "Who do you say that I am?" Peter answered Him, "You are the Messiah!" And He strictly warned them to tell no one about Him.

Jesus speaks of His suffering and death Saying, "The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, be killed, and be raised third day"

Jesus speaks about self-denial Then Jesus said to His disciples. If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will find it.

For the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of Is Father, and then He will reward each according to what he has done.

The transfiguration He was transformed in front of them, and His face shone like the sun, Even His clothes became as white as the light. Suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them Talking with Him. While he was still speaking suddenly a bright cloud covered them and a voice from the cloud said; This is My beloved Son. I take delight in Him. Listen to Him.

Question about Elijah Then they began to question Him, Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
Elijah does come first and restores everything, He replied. "How then is it written about the Son of Man that He must suffer many things and be treated with contempt? But I tell you that Elijah really has come, and they did to him whatever they wanted, just as it is written about him"

Jesus' ministry of healing and deliverance Because of your little faith" He told them. For I assure you; If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will tell this mountain, Move from here to there' and it will move, Nothing will be impossible for you. However this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting.

But when you pray, go into your private room, shut your door, and pray to your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
