“…a light-radiant cloud enveloped them, and sounding from deep in the cloud a voice: “This is my Son, marked by my love, focus of my delight. Listen to him.” (Mt 17:5).
God is saying no different today. It is his Son’s voice we should be hearing, the only voice worth listening to.
We will hear what the Lord God will speak and HE SPEAKS CHRIST the LIVING WORD OF GOD the TRUTH PERSONIFIED and …he comes to us with GRACE ON TOP OF GRACE.
Here God the Father from the realm of his most excellent glory. He SPEAKS in the presence of MOSES AND ELIJAH who embodies the spirit of the law and the prophets.
They were speaking of his coming death in Jerusalem.
THE LAW seen in MOSES was on STONE TABLETS exposed and convinced people of sin and showed their utter ruin because of sin.
THE PROPHETS seen in Elijah had the Spirit of Christ in them testifying spoke of salvation BY GRACE that should come to us through the suffering and glory of Christ.
CHRIST ALONE LOVED BY GOD THE FATHER IS NOW THE VOICE WE HEAR AS WE READ AND STUDY SCRIPTURE.
GOD the Father establishes here that it the by grace alone, through CHRIST alone that we can be saved. The grace of God reigns in our hearts through the IMPUTED righteousness of Christ and the grace of God came ABUNDANTLY in God’s dearly loved Son.
