All the events at the mount contributed to giving Jesus honor and glory from the Father – 2Pe 1:17 “For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased,”‘ The glorious transfiguration of Christ. The presence (and subsequent absence) of Moses and Elijah. The voice from heaven, acknowledging Christ as God’s Son.
What does God desire of us today…? Not tabernacles or temples erected in the memory of His Son, but for us to simply obey what God said at the mount: “Hear Him!” If we desire to add to the honor and glory that Jesus so richly deserves, and to one day behold His majesty in heaven, then be careful to heed what He himself said regarding His authority:
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Mt 28:18-20
