Originally written on May 19, 2010 at 11:13am. Upon reading this I was confused as my words were not written in such a manner to convey what God had placed upon my heart to share. With that said, I shall edit this post today, being Monday (April 8, 2013) 7:13pm.
Children, as I ministered to a very close friend of mine yesterday for almost three hours, my heavenly Father shared many beautiful things with me and my great friend as I spoke to her concerning the “Transfiguration of Jesus.”
Definition of Transfiguration: The act of changing your outward form or appearance. In the Transfiguration of Jesus (read here), Jesus is united with the prophet Elijah and Moses. Why?
This is what my heavenly Father says and shows me: “Just as you all relate and have a purpose in this relationship— So did Jesus, with Moses and Elijah. Moses showed my great power, but sins of the flesh, kept him from entering the promise land on earth. Just as Jesus showed my great power, his flesh in which he took up all of sin of the world (John 1:29) for my purpose, kept Him from remaining on this earth.
As Elijah prophesied and a people were condemned by their very sin from the truth he testified to, so has my Son Jesus in testifying to the truth (John 18:37) saw a people condemned in their sin. Just as Elijah ascended (2 Kings 2) to me after my purpose for him was fulfilled on earth, my Son Jesus too, ascended (Acts 1:9-10) to me upon His completed work.
As Elisha took over from Elijah’s purpose, through God’s will and a transfer of ministry like a passing of a torch (2 Kings 2), Jesus’ disciples also carried on through their faith in Jesus Christ, God’s will through Jesus’ purpose on earth.” All praise be to God forever and ever. Amen!
The three disciples (James, John, and Peter) who bare witness to the transfiguration of Jesus, like Elisha bore witness to Elijah being carried away in a chariot of fire (2 Kings 2), received the very thing they were in need of— a great portion of the Lord’s Spirit to continue on in the same ministry, calling and purpose. The three, kneeling to the ground instead of taking it all in as they became afraid upon hearing God the Father’s voice, were like Elisha seperated from Elijah (2 Kings 2:11) from the things of heaven, though overwhelmed from such heavenly things they all still received the very blessing we all are in need of— God Himself! However, as so many of God’s children look away and turn away from God, let us take notice to what Elijah asked for of Elijah (2 Kings 2:9) and what the disciples did (though in haste) in response towards what heavenly things they saw (Matthew 17). We are to desire a double portion of God and to worship Him, rather than remain walking away and looking away from God, not claiming the victorious things God Himself has in store for us. Amen.
Children, DO NOT allow fear to seperate you from everything God has in store for you, even the greatest of blessings— to behold His beautiful Son Jesus who is the very faithful picture of grace and truth. Amen!
I look to you and you alone. Ah, my sovereign Lord. You keep me smiling indeed. My heart speeds up at the very thought of you and I am filled with endless joy from all that you are. It is you alone, that has me saying this aloud! Father, you are the captain of my fate and the master of my soul. To you beautiful Father I bow down to at the thought and mention of your Son’s holy name. All my love and adoration to you Father for blessing my very life; my very soul with such revelation and further insight into your heart. In Jesus Christ alone. Amen.
Your thankful son,
