TOPIC: LIGHT – KEY TO TRANSFIGURATION
Scripture :Matthew 17: 2. And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter. Yesterday, we established that your light is key to your prayer life. Today, we shall be considering how encounter with light is key to your transfiguration.
What is transfiguration?
Accepting to Merriam Webster Dictionary, transfiguration means metamorphosis which is a change of form or transformation.
Light has the power to transform a man from one form to another. The character we exhibit on a daily basis is a product of our encounter with light. Infact, everyone behaves to the best of their revelational knowledge of God. No man can act beyond what he knows because you can only give what you have.
*What is the result of encounter with light using Jesus as a case study(Matt.17:1-9)?:*
When Jesus went to the mountain to pray, He was transfigured as light broke out from heaven! Below are the results of that encounter:
1. Change of face(Matt.17:2);The first thing that happened was the alteration of countenance. The arrival of light produces a change of face. The face the disciples of Jesus knew before was altered the moment light came!
Beloved, this is to inform you that your light is a determinant of your change of form in life. Your status changes when your light comes! Life is in phases, there’s a phase of life that will open up to you the moment you encounter higher light.
There is a better version of you that will emerge the moment your light breaks out! You can literally change your story by accessing light from heaven because your shining in life is a product of your light (Isa.60:1).
2. A change of raiment (Matt. 17:2); Your raiment speaks of your clothing! Whatever clothing you are currently putting on now is at the mercy of light!
When you encounter the light from heaven you don’t need to be advised to change your dressing because your dressing is a reflection of your mindset.
This explains why you don’t change a mad man by changing his dressing, you change him by changing his mindset. As for the mad man he is referred to as one who has lost his mind, he has lost the capacity to use his mind.
It usually bothered me to see a Christian dress in rags like a mad man! But I now know better, because that is how much their mind can carry. So when you see a child of God who has encountered the Light of God, he /she dresses decently.
You cannot be dressing like a prostitute and you expect to walk freely on the street! You will certainly be embarrassed with unwanted attention. What the Holy Ghost is saying is that when your light comes, your dressing will be affected.
3. You access revelation cheaply(Matt. 17:3); There was a revelation of Moses with Elijah giving Jesus information.
Beloved, men with light are men of revelation. Revelation is the ladder you need to connect from the world of fantasy to a world of reality.
Revelation is the vehicle that passes information from the unseen realm to our world. And it comes via light, the moment you can access light in certain dimensions, you begin to see what others don’t see. And If you can see it then you can have it. How much you can see is how much you can possess! (Jer. 1:11,12)
4. He was in touch with the voice of God (Matt. 17:5); The arrival of Light is the arrival of the voice of God.
You cannot be in touch with Light and be bankrupt of the voice of God. Those who are under heavy lights are those in touch with the voice of God.
So if God must talk to you He sends you light because God’s medium of communication is light. Therefore to catch light is to catch the voice of God.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real! Eternity without Jesus is a painful eternity. Jesus loves you.
Prayer points :
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, help me to follow the footsteps of Jesus by engaging in activities that can bring my light in the name of Jesus.
Prophetic Declaration :
– I prophesy the release of your light that will usher you into your breakthrough in the name of Jesus.
