I walk Ozzie (our shit tzu) in the morning. It was between darkness and dawn but not yet twilight. The sun peaked through the trees and momentarily blinded me. I thought, “Oh, to have that kind of revelation of the Son.”
Peter, James and John don’t see the noon day Son (Beatific Vision) but something between darkness and dawn.
“No man can see God and live.”
The reason we don’t we see God face to face is because God loves our freedom to choose Him.
