"And he said to them, “I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power.”
Mark 9 verse 2 continues with the transfiguration story...
"After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus."
So some who had been standing there in verse 1 did see the power of God come with power, they witnessed the King in His kingdom.
I also think of the power of God coming on the day of Pentecost a few years later.
Can you think of other examples where the kingdom of God was visible and its power evident?
Have you experienced times in your own life where God's power felt near, and His reign felt close?
What do you think Jesus was talking about here?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
