Mark 9:5-6 ” Peter said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters–one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.”

The Scene: trees leaning toward each other to provide shade, shelter from the elements of the weather.

Peter was thinking, maybe, about creature comforts or about enjoying an eternal stay/visit with Jesus, Moses, and Elijah. However, that was not to be. For Jesus and Father God had a different plan.  Jesus took His disciples back down the Mount of Transfiguration to live according to His will a little longer.

Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.”

At the time Peter spoke, Jesus was thinking of holiness of the moment—God, the Almighty, Father God, would be there, in a cloud, to speak to the group. We are called to use Godly wisdom in all we do and to pray for God’s blessings on our activities–to get God’s help in all our doings.

*SHELTERS: Different translations of this Scripture say:  tabernacles, booths, shelters or tents
