Luke 9:27

Luke 9:27 (ESV): 27 But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God."

It's been said that there are two guarantees in life, death, and taxes. That is true for most but some will not experience (taste) death at all for they will be caught away (raptured) from this life to the next.

Three of the disciples that walked with Jesus didn't taste death UNTIL they saw His Kingdom at the transfiguration. They did die but not until they saw what the Kingdom would look like. Everyone has been appointed to die for the flesh cannot inherit the Kingdom of God but God can transfigure from perishable to imperishable in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye. God gave Peter, James, and John a glimpse of what the Kingdom and the rapture will be like at the transfiguration of Jesus.

Are you living in such a way that you are ready to see Jesus? No one knows the day or the hour but we do know the promise that not everyone shall sleep (1 Cor 15:51-52)! Like the transfiguration, the rapture of the church will happen suddenly. This should cause us to live like Jesus could take us home any moment. Are you ready? If not, it's time to get ready for Jesus is coming soon. Maranatha!

Father, we thank You that we shall not all see death. Jesus will take His church from this world in a moment and we shall be changed! Help us to live with this view in mind and keep our minds on things above in Jesus' name we pray, amen.
