Hail to the Chief

Hail to the Chief cues the President, of the United States, of America. He enters the room and all eyes turn in his direction. Others in attendance, reporters-to-dignitaries award him honor and respect fitting the office of a nation’s leader. Even those who oppose his presidency and policies, respect the position he holds. When announced, the person given the privilege, reads aloud a well-prepared introduction.

The scene is the Mount of Transfiguration. Peter, James, and John had just witnessed a divine appearance of Moses, Elijah, and Jesus in all his Glory. Peter, as spokesman for the disciples offered to erect structures for Jesus the Messiah, Moses, representing the Law, and Elijah as one of the prophets. He had not finished making his offer, before he received an unexpected affirmation of Jesus deity.

“While he was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him (Matthew 17:5 NIV)!” He not only introduced Jesus as his Son, but also showered him with adoration and words of sheer delight! He turned the direction of Peter, James, and John from temporary shelters, to Christ, the eternal refuge!
