Sunday, February 26th, is the day the Church celebrates the Transfiguration of Jesus Christ. You are most likely familiar with Matthew 17 and the Transfiguration event. Jesus asks Peter, James and John to come with Him to a high mountain. It is there that Jesus becomes His Heavenly self instead of an earthly creature. He and His garments are whiter and brighter than a mortal can even take in. Moses and Elijah converse with Him and are possibly conveying what the immediate future holds or maybe even subjects concerning the Eternal Kingdom. Speculation is all we have because scripture does not go into detail … but we are painted a picture of what Jesus Christ’s appearance will be like when we get to our Heavenly reward.
“His face shone like the sun. Even His clothes became as white as the light”.
To be a Christian: …
This is what happens to us when we become a servant of our Lord and Savior; … not in physical appearance … but to our spirit, … our soul.
When we realize and confess that we are a sinner and beg for forgiveness and mercy; … when we ask Jesus to come into our heart; … when we finally realize how mortal we are and that there is no way we will ever have real joy and success in our life without turning that life over to Jesus Christ, … then our spiritual being, … the part of us that never dies, … is forever whiter than snow and brighter than the sun!
What a phenomenal Savior we have; … what a glorious God we serve!
Psalm 34: 5: … Those who look to Him are radiant with joy; their faces will never be ashamed.
