Chinese Sermon Note
Jesus Transfigured on the Mount
(Mark 9:1–13; Luke 9:27–36; 2 Pet. 1:16–18)
Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid. But Jesus came and touched them and said, “Arise, and do not be afraid.” When they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.
We want to do for God but God opened the heaven and said it is not what we do for Him but is listen to His beloved Son, Jesus. Listen to Him.
Do His work, which is believe Jesus, His finished work.
Listen to Jesus. The disciples were afraid when they heard God opened heaven and spoke.
Jesus came forward and touched His disciples and told them fear not.
When we are afraid, what does Jesus do? He come forward and embrace you.
Jesus embrace you and said stand up, fear not.
ℓσνє embrace you.
Even in your weakness, fear not.
Those who are in Christ are not condemn anymore.
Jesus said fear not, He is always with you and He always provide for you.
When they looked up, they saw no one but Jesus only
No One Knows the Day or Hour
(Mark 13:32–37; Luke 17:26, 27, 34, 35; 21:34–36)
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
When this dark season is over, the normal season will come. After the normal season we will go up supernatural. We will then be raptured. And after which there will be 7 years of dark seasons

1 Corinthians 2:7-9
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
Jesus is almighty, glorious and yet He came to be on the cross.
When you see the cross you see His ℓσνє for you
Yes there are a lot of pandemic but we are in Christ. We have shalom in Him
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
