We need the cloud
Luke 9: 34-36 “While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and covered them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.” 36 When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves and did not tell anyone at that time what they had seen.
Look how similar this is to what happened previously with Moses in Exodus 24:15-16 “When Moses went up on the mountain, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the Lord settled on Mount Sinai. For six days the cloud covered the mountain, and on the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from within the cloud.”
A cloud appeared. Have you been experiencing change? It could be the cloud.
And covered them. Even the people who you are with may look like they are no longer with you. Your vision has gone and solitude has set in. Have you failed? Should you give up? No, it is the cloud. You are in the cloud.
And a voice came from the cloud. And what is the agenda? What is the voice saying? It will always be about these 3 things:
The revelation of Jesus: This is my Son.
The recognition of His love: Whom I love.
You being a disciple of Him: Listen to Him!
