2 Peter 1:17
17 For [gar] he received [lambano] from [para] God [theos] the Father [pater] honour [time] and [kai] glory [doxa], when there came [phero]
such [toiosde] a voice [phone] to him [autos] from [hupo] the excellent [megaloprepes]
glory [doxa], This [houtos] is [esti] my [mou] beloved [agapetos] Son [huios], in [eis] whom [hos] I [ego] am well pleased [eudokeo]. KJV-Interlinear
17 For when He received honor and
glory from God the Father, such an utterance as this was made to Him by the
Majestic Glory, This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased NASB
While on the Mt. of
Transfiguration, Peter, James and John, all three heard a voice, which
thundered as no voice they, nor anyone, had ever heard.
This was the voice of
God the Father, giving them formal acknowledgement that this Jesus, was indeed
5 While he was still
speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and behold, a voice out of
the cloud, saying, This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen
to Him! NASB
26 There is none like
the God of Jeshurun, Who rides the heavens to your help, And through the skies
in His majesty.
27 The eternal God is [my
refuge] a dwelling place, And underneath are the everlasting arms; NASB
In this world all of
the honor and glory attributed to people, is at best pale, shallow, subjective,
biased, invented, made up for convenience, produced out of arrogance, ego, and approbation.After all, what person who consists of dust,
with life and talent imputed by God into it, can boast of their inherent
abilities (which do not exist).
Only God, and here,
only the Son, possesses inherent abilities, even life, even eternal life, which
never ends, and never had a beginning, and as such, is worthy of perfect honor
and glory.Who can boast of a greater aspect
of their life?
Peter was a witness of
this formal acknowledgement of the Son, and by God the Father, no less.There is no other greater power, or authority
which can make this statement, and carry the weight of unchallengeable truth.
And with this
statement, Peter, and God through His word, places each one of us on notice.
We are nothing when it
comes to our existence.As we are but a
speck in the universe, but a speck in history, but a speck on this planet.
What is it then that
makes man so wise as to reject the one and only creator and maintainer, of
everything?Or to reject the one and
only perfect plan for our eternal life, in favor of what?
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
