with Jeremy Westcott –
Jesus was transfigured here on earth and shone with glory.
That is God’s intention for all of us, to be shining with the glory of God. We can begin to manifest the glory of God through our lives as we become a channel of God living in us.
Now again, you may be suspicious of this because channelling is something New Age people do. But they have grasped a concept which is true, though they have applied it in a way which is ungodly.
God is on the inside of us, in our spirit, and if He wants to manifest on the outside of us then He needs to come through our soul and body. So we become a channel, an interface between God and the world around us, a means through which He can manifest. When Jesus did all the miracles and the things that He did, it was the Father in Him manifesting His works.
God is calling us into that same relationship, to do the things that we see the Father doing. It all springs from the revelation that comes as we are transformed from one degree of glory to another.
When we speak about ‘transformation’, it is not simply that our behaviour will change. That is what I was highlighting in yesterday’s post about our DNA. If we submit to the process of transformation, we will not just enjoy closer, more intimate times with God, or overcome besetting sins in our lives (important though those things are). No, we will be radically changed, transformed into ‘sons of light’.
Even the phrase ‘sons of light’ speaks of something far beyond what most people probably imagine it to mean. At the very least, we will recover some of the abilities latent within our DNA. They will be switched back on, restoring what Adam had before he sinned, and even beyond that.
We may not have grasped all the details – yet. Indeed, however much of this we have understood, God is able to do far more than we could ask or even imagine.
