Eyewitnesses to the glory of Christ

Jesus had 12 eyewitnesses of His glory and those were the twelve disciples, they lived many incredible moments with the Master, moments that today we read them and we thought how good it would be to have had such privilege. The twelve disciples could be part of great miracles performed by Jesus, of great mercies, of words with a broadly celestial wisdom, they simply had the greatest privilege, but this was not everything, since many other people could witness these things, but they were simply there for the miracle, since at the time of Jesus being delivered, they were screaming: Release Barabbas and crucify Jesus!

It is not doubt that these disciples, later converted into the apostles of the early church, had to suffer much ignorance and lack of faith from other people to proclaim the name of Christ, and that is why Peter writes in his second letter:

16 But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey—an animal without speech—who spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness.

17 These people are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them. 18 For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of the flesh, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error.

2 Peter 2:16-18

In the first verse Peter is practically saying that he had not taught the gospel by emotion or by any fashion of the moment, or as if it were a fairy tale. He is telling them that the things he was teaching them he has see seen them, he had witnessed it at certain moments. Let us remember that moment when Peter was on a mountain and Jesus was transfigured. Peter was able to witness that glory and now he is talking about it and he does not do so out of emotion, he does it as an eyewitness, as he who saw with his own eyes multiple miracles done by Jesus.

Peter was one of those men who were willing to give everything for Jesus, and today we must have the same attitude: Give everything for Christ!

In the following verses Peter continues giving a brushstroke of the things he could live, key moments in which he witnessed that glory. It is no wonder that perhaps many people said that those experiences were just hallucinations, and it is the same thing that happens with us today, those who have given themselves the task of saying that God does not exist will tell us to give them proof, but , I ask you: What greater proof can we need than to feel Him every day and have all the wonders that we can see today?

We were not eyewitnesses of all the things performed by Jesus, but today we are witnesses of His manifest power in us through the death of Christ on the cross. May that faith of believing in Him remain in us until the day of His coming.

    Eyewitnesses to the glory of Christ

    The apostles of Christ were eyewitnesses to his glory, his miracles, they heard his voice, his words, how the Lord behaved with them.

    What a marvellous thing it would be to have been bodily in His presence! My mind wants to imagine it, but I should not do it because I have seen some hand-made images of Him and I remember:

    “You shall not make to you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth”
    (Exodus 20:4)

    The idea of seeing Jesus and his works is somehow impossible for us who remain in our imperfect flesh and human wickedness. But in a spiritual way we can see the wonder of Faith in us, the holy work to transform us day to day by Him in our lives.

    These works are still part of His glory and His power; things we can gather and think about.

    And now, a question:
    Are we able to be witnesses of Jesus Christ in this lost World and give all for Him?

    The Minister of the Lord who writes for us in this page, says:

    “Peter was one of those men who were willing to give everything for Jesus, and today we must have the same attitude: Give everything for Christ!
    those who have given themselves the task of saying that God does not exist will tell us to give them proof, but, I ask you: What greater proof can we need than to feel Him every day and have all the wonders that we can see today?
    We were not eyewitnesses of all the things performed by Jesus, but today we are witnesses of His manifest power in us through the death of Christ on the cross.
    May that faith of believing in Him remain in us until the day of His coming.”

    This resounds in me and I say
    Amen.
