A Sound Counsel From Spurgeon

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    In Luke 9 we read Jesus’ encounter with the “devil” after the Transfiguration and this is from Spurgeon’s commentary on that chapter, part of verses 28-42 from last week’s Bible study.
    3.What is being revealed when Jesus took Peter, John, and James with him up to the Mountain? (Luke 9: 28-42) Jesus’ sonship …. His honor.

    Spurgeon : Our Lord had been on the mountain, and had been transfigured; and when he came down, the first person that he met was the devil, with whom he had to come in contact. Whenever you or I get up on the mountain-top, and have a very happy and delightful experience, we may expect to be in a battle before long. Our joy is, however, a preparation for the conflict; it nerves our spirit, and makes us strong to meet the great enemy of our souls.

    This tells us to watch when we have had a beautiful revealing of the Truth. We must cherish it, understand its source , build more faith and understanding from the power of that Truth and grow stronger in our conviction of what is true, this way we are not thrown off if error rears its ugly, head but with understanding can see its nothingness!
