Eyewitnesses To The 2nd Coming
Q. Please could you spare a moment to tell me how you interpret Christ’s statement in Matthew 16:28? He says there were “those present who would not taste death until they saw the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” Some say it is evidence of Christ’s humanity – since He said that He didn’t know the time of His return. Others have said He was referring to the com ing of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. What is your interpretation?
A. Six days after Jesus said this, He took Peter, James and John to the top of a nearby mountain and was transfigured before them. Moses and Elijah were there and the voice of God spoke to them all (Matt. 17:1-8).
In 2 Peter 1:16-18 Peter recalled the event.
We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.
When Peter said this he was obviously talking about the 2nd Coming. This means the Lord’s transfiguration was the fulfillment of Matt. 16:29. Now this doesn’t mean the 2nd Coming has already taken place as some Preterists would have us believe. It just means that during their lifetimes the three disciples were eyewitnesses to the fact that it will.

Hello Friends, as usual we are fasting today and I came to request you to please pray for us as we pray for you, if you have any prayer request please let us know............ while we will lift up our hands in this evening service and hold you up in our prayers. God always performed wonders and miracles when we lifted our hands, so I welcome you to place your prayer requests. I have a special requ est, next month I am going to visit Orissa State where all our brethren were persecuted and tortured by the Hindu rebels. Last year I have distributed 500 Bibles and ministered in many places, this year I love to distribute the same amount of Bibles and some poor pastors also expecting cycles for their ministry, kindly pray for the needs to be fulfilled. If you have any questions or personal interest than please write me a private message (not on wall), thanks...........Pastor Y.S.Rao
The New Testament teaches that the resurrection of Jesus, which Easter celebrates, is a foundation of the Christian faith.The resurrection established Jesus as the powerful Son of God and is cited as proof that God will judge the world in righteousness.God has given Christians "a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead".Christians, through faith in the working of God are spiritually resurrected with Jesus so that they may walk in a new way of life.
