“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.”
II Peter 1:16 (NIV)
The Bible makes it plain that there is a spiritual battle going on for the souls of mankind. It is more that good verses bad. Part of the satanic plan is to imitate God’s plan. We are warned that Satan often comes as a “angel of light.” For century’s fiction has imitated the Supernatural. Fairytales, myths, folk stories with magical powers and super heroes not only imitate the supernatural, they plant a seed of doubt in actually believing that the Bible is true. After all a fairytale is make believe so why believe the stories told in Scriptures. Peter knew this was happening. That is why he insisted that we know that he and the other disciples were not following some clever invented story. Instead they were sharing about what they actually witnessed. They witnessed the very power and majesty of Christ. Majesty, that splendor of character, greatness, authority and sovereign power that Christ exhibited in the way He lived. What if you and I could say with Peter that we were eyewitnesses of this same power and majesty today? We can you know. We can experience the real, living Christ today, just like the disciples. Ask Christ if it is true? Go ahead. Talk to Him about His power and majesty. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Today begin a deeper walk with Him. If you do, you too will join Peter and the millions of others, who through the centuries, have known His power and majesty.
Father, I want to know You in all Your power and majesty. I want to be an eyewitness of the same kinds of things that Peter experienced. Help me believe. Increase my faith. Make Your supernatural presence a reality in my life. I pray this in Jesus’ name.
