A Weird Meeting with Leaders

A Weird Meeting with Leaders

Great leaders meet together to help their countries get along.  Jesus did that too, but it was pretty weird. He spoke with Moses and Elijah. What’s so weird about that?

Well, Moses had died centuries before that day and Elijah had gone into the heavens on a fiery chariot centuries before that day. Both men stood and spoke to Jesus. Jesus didn’t look normal. His face shone and his clothes became dazzling white as he stood with them at the top of a mountain. No one knows what these three talked about.

Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt and out of slavery. Elijah, a prophet and spiritual leader, shared news of the coming of Jesus the Messiah. They may have been very excited to know Jesus at last had come and started his work on earth.

Even stranger, a voice came from heaven. Peter, John and James saw Jesus speaking to the men and heard God speak from a cloud. God said, “This is my chosen Son; listen to him.” Soon after the voice spoke, Jesus stood alone and the men disappeared.

People wonder about heaven and God and here we know that these two men still existed. They remind us that there is a heaven.

On earth, we can pray for our president, especially when he meets with foreign leaders, both those who are our friends, and those who are enemies.
