Terms and conditions of our Transfiguration. The Recognition of who we are and where we are going.
The way the Almighty God relates to us is with vanacular common to us. We call them parables and similes, sounds like and looks like, but not really like. Because God is different in make-up and design, He created a link between Himself and ourself called the gospel. This is our elevator and go between. Because God is everywhere all the time, the only barrier between Him and us are misunderstandings passed on to every one by the fall at the Garden of Eden and by mental constructs you adopt.
It is these that we must climb up and clammer out of, as our duty to the truth revealed to us through the Gospel, which takes us to the Father. This is why we were instructed to “boldly go to the throne room of grace.
That’s what the parable of the demon possessed man in the Gadarenes who encountered Jesus/Yeshua Christ is about. After a short time with Jesus Christ, the man was soon seen seated in his right mind.
This is a picture of what the gospel does to each one of us, and fulfills Paul’s words given to us in Ephesus saying “4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised (resurrected) us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus”.
Then since these things are yours, not if but since, you need to view the parable of the man at the Gardarenes as a description of what has already happened to you before some illusive second coming, for you to learn to believe to receive, then to activate the gift given at such a high price of the cross, lest you insult the gift giver.
The gift giver can be a taker and you find yourself unchanged. He comes to some as a thief in the night because the spirit of their minds remain darkened to His presence. There is no place for Gods word to take root in a darkened mind of rejection, because they won’t let the light of light in.
That’s why Christ said “who then is the wise steward whom the Lord will find them watching? Blessed is that one for so God will make them joint heir’s of all He has”.
This was another parable given for you to know what you really have as becoming an Elect, of those who take God at His word, implimented it and put it to work.
That’s what scripture is really for. All the old covenant accounts, walked out and put into stories, is for us to understand the invisible, while the New Covenant gives us things in writing, to help us fill in the blanks of our understanding.
Scripture is a map of the invisible for those blinded or asleep to Him who wisks about you at will, in hopes that you will just look up. Not like to the Sun. But in the regions of your mind. As Paul described his encounter as the light brighter than the noon day sun as something from another dimension we call the Heavens of the mind. That is where the bright light hit him and the place of his awakening of Him who wisks around at will.
That one ounce of the Eternal far out weighs all of time and matter associated with the 6 days of creation because long after the creation has expired in purpose and been recalled, that ounce of Eternity will still be around.
For this reason our mind needs the expanse of the Holy Spirit to hold all that God has given us. And because God is Spirit and Truth, the Holy Spirit is more than suitable for the task.
It is for this cause that “we as beholding the Lord as in a mirror, are being transfigured into His self same image, from the Glory to that Glory as by (the deposit God has given us in) the Spirit.
For this reason Paul also said “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ” as a foregone conclusion.
There is a corralation between creations. Things of the world only have a resemblance to the Heavenly, by way of contrasts.
For this reason we are transfigured, transformed and translated to His realm by the renewing the spirit of our mind to the things of God. (Romans 12.1) To become fully awake, aware and interactive with the One who is “at hand”, who is within reach to humans not carnally but to the understanding by way of being rescripted. Meaning, to have your mind re-fitted, formatted and re-scribed by scripture. That’s an erasing of old belief’s for new.
Even as Christ promised in John, “if you receive My words and My words abide in you, I and the Father will come to you and make our home in you”, and so they have. And since “In the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God, He was in the beginning with God”. When God sees a reflection of Himself of His only Begotten in us, God relates to us as if we are the only Begotten too. Because of this we are joint heirs. And good for us, God takes no account to the person carrying this package. We go to Him in Christ’s name and that’s all He sees. There is no reconning of the past. That was dealt with at the cross.
This is what we are trying to tell you. This is for your Transfiguration. For your transition from here to their, and the reason for the Gospel. Even as Paul said “I am not ashamed of the gospel message of Jesus Christ for it is the power (dunamus from the Greek meaning, power plant) of God for salvation”. And Peter “receiving the end of your faith, the salvation of your soul (meaning your invisible part fully restored). In the here and now before you leave this carnal experience.
The gospel has it’s completion in you now before your carnal departure. Which is more aptly understood as being unplugged from your carnal experience. And much like awakening from a bad dream to remember that you are imaged like God as was first given to Adam the same way as us. Gods word.
How else could it said that “of His fullness we have all received and grace upon grace” as heaping helpings over flowing for your indulgences into the things of Gods Holy Spirit.
Scripture is given for us to associate with Him who said “I am with you always, even to the ends of the age”. But you cannot see this reality of God the Father or His Son or Holy Spirit, because they are Ubiquitous in nature, meaning every where all the time for the consumption in the mind. “For all things are open and exposed to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do”.
However, because of this, we can see them with the eyes of our understanding as being something different than the eyes in our head.
Again from Paul that ” 18 the eyes of your [f]understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality[g] and [h]power and [i]might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.Ephesians 1.17)
This is how we interact with them. And because “God is Spirit and God is Truth” we must learn to abide in that realm to fully associate and assimilate them. To put the things on He has given us that are His. To “put on Christ”. That “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body, and you are complete in Him” if you’ve learned to assimilate Them in this way. Until the realization and the actualization is complete and you are competently using the things He has given you from His realm and His reality of something different from the carnal experience.
Even as Peter quoted from the old Covenant that was true for the and as well for us to, to “be ye Holy as I am Holy”. Meaning to be full of Gods things with no impurities. “You cannot partake of the table of Christ and of demons”. To be out with the old, and in with the new. For even Lot a righteous man tormented his own soul by seeing and hearing the lawless deeds of the wicked”. He lost his focus and became distracted by the barrage of illusions.
We have been instructed to “put on the new man in the image of Him who created us”. Of Christ whom no man has seen nor can see (1 Timothy 6.16. This is our transfiguration, one revelation at a time.
Here is what the Greek word “Koinania” is all about. It is translated as “fellowship”. It is a social intercourse. A discourse whereby the transferance of Gods things takes place from Him to us. Because it is not carnal we can’t show it to you any other way than our Father does which is word, Gods word called His Son.
Yes the gospel message is our imbelicle cord, meant to be understood as a conduit and a pipeline. It is the very delivery mechanism of things from God to us, to be assimilated first then activated, both by faith.
However many have stifled the message because they just cannot believe. They are now waiting for the next work of God they call a second coming, thinking God will save them from their short comings at the second coming, a phrase that’s not found once in scripture.
They are completely closed to what we say, and miss out on the provisions God has given us for today. For if He said “I will never leave you or forsake you” how is it you feel left out? You’re listening to the wrong message.
Hebrews 11.1 has this to say about our reliance on the invisible. Now faith is the [a]substance of things hoped for, the [b]evidence that there are things not seen. By this the elders obtained a good rapport with God”.
Meaning, we cannot provide for you the proof you need in a court of law with facts, or physical findings because physical God is not or God would not be Ubiquitous and timeless. Even as Hebrews 13.8 says “Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” describing His original unchangable constitution.
“God is Spirit and Truth and seeketh such. He would have to have a locality with maybe an address and a zip code, but that will never happen. Otherwise how could our Savior make good on His promise to “never leave us or forsake us”? A task He carries out for each of us simultaneously even till this day.
Some may have questions to the validity of that statement, but if you’ve experienced feeling abandoned, and we all have, it is usually because you don’t know how to stay under His covering of protections, provisions and care and have fled to others for social safety and social security. Those are the counterfeits.
Don’t be discouraged if you are feeling exposed right now (naked like Adam). Because your spot is still here with the Father. You can still return. That’s what repent means. To turn on your heals, make an about face and God will meet you right where you are.
Like the prodigal son. The Father ran to him and met him right where he was at. He was then seen back home feasting with his family as you are invited to do even now. The Fathers arms are wide open.
Now here’s the first truth you have to understand crystal clear.
God spoke through His Son to the rejected genome of the Jews saying “seeing with their eyes they see not and hearing with their ears they hear not for it is with the heart, be soul and mind that we must see and hear to assimilate the things of God”.
And this is the main point we would like to embellish today.
If you can learn to receive these things, you can enter “the land of promise” being our place with God “in Christ” different from the, promised land on earth called Israel.
What they had was pictorial. What we have is the invisible place where we assimilate the promises. Even as Paul said that “all the promises of God are yes! and amen! “in Christ”, which is Gods Israel. (Exodus 4.22) Thus sayeth the Lord, Israel is My Son, My Firstborn”. We know Him as Yeshua and Jesus. He is the land where all the promises have their reality confirmed.
To walk in His promises is not in a place like a city country or a state, but a state of mind where we hold these truths and activate them by faith as things we have received and implimented at the behest of Gods Holy Spirit. Even as Jesus Christ says that “the spirit will take what is mine and declare it to you”.
That declaration is the activation for the realization that Gods word is true for us today. The only waiting or hesitation is in your understanding. For some of us that wait has been over for years. In us dwells the fullness of the Godhead body and “we are complete in Him who is head over all principalities and powers”.
To bring it down to an expectation on earth is to cheapen it. It is to spend it. “For all the earth and all its works will be burned for the Eternal to remain”. That is like throwing it away.
For this reason, if you use it here you will loose it. But “those who loose their lives for My sake gains life for Eternity” because you left it where it belongs “in Christ”. We who are “in Christ” have made the distinction. We have as it were, moved in to Gods Heavenly Kingdom and made it our home. Our insides are much greater than the outside that you can look at. That is why Christ warned “they will say, look here and look there, but the Kingdom of God is within you”, right between your ears in the Spirit of your mind. This is your Transfiguration.
If all this seems too far fetched to you, you have to ask yourself why it is that Peter in his last letter spoke about the Transfiguration and said that “we were with Him in the Mount when we heard the most excellent Glory say, this is My Beloved in whome I am well pleased. Who also said this “for you to have a rememberance of this long after my departure” as the most important thing for you to know. Which is for us to participate in our completed Transfiguration gifted to us through scripture as being the highest mountain of all scripture, speaking again about pictures and parables of concurring, invisible realities opened up to us in Gods Word. That we being found in His word, and His word being found in us. That His word is our home and our word is His word, and His word is the proverbial ladder that takes us to Himself. Even as it says of one in John “you are the Messiah and Christ, the Son of God”. And with this confession the Heavens open up and he confessed “I see the Angels of God ascendind and descending upon the son of man, meaning Christ in the flesh. That because it happened to Jesus as a man, it can happen to you too. Their is nothing He had then that He hasn’t given you now, to experience before your own Exodus and departure.
When your carnal experience is over and you find yourself in full view of the Glories, just hope you don’t find yourself saying, just send one with his finger dipped in cold water for I am hot and parched, because of the great gulf between you and Christ.. For there is no place for you to enter there that you haven’t been given access here, and there are no garments for you to put on if you haven’t already been wearing them. Do not be like the unwise virgins who did not enter the feast. The Master of that feast said “depart from Me you workers of inequity for I do not know you from where you are from”. Why? Because you did not enter in. You could not receive it as it were by faith.
For this reason, The Kingdom of God, is still “At Hand”, momentarily. Amen!
