BREAKOUT POSITIVE THOUGHTS. 422 ( Less is Greater, Greater is less .

“And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One; listen to him!”

We can be people who are a hard task masters over our own lives.

Jesus is not a task master. He is a lover.

God will not measure us by our works and devotion but by our fusing with and intimacy to Him. He has no axe to grind but only to bring us assurance of eternity, of His love and His adoration of each of us.

He has given us Jesus of whom He has said. “ This is my Son, my Chosen One; listen to him!”

‭At His transfiguration Moses and Elijah appeared also symbolic that the Laws of Moses and the Prophesy of Elijah were foundations from the past and our focus now was on Jesus.

God’s word appropriately for our lives right now. Jesus revealed not only from the spirit before creation but as the spirit speaking “Amen” “let it be so “into our lives now.

‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation.”

That moment that the disciples witnessed at the transfiguration is the same needed today in crisis.

A crisis in the world termed by social commentators as VUCA, Volatile, Uncertain. Complex, Ambiguous needs the unchangeable One, the One with the plan , the One who has the Amen to let it be the start and finish of what Will Be.

Jesus is never blind sided by anything, He is in control, He has a plan. He is limitless. He is our source. He loves us.

Our spiritual sickness or lack of health stems only from our own self reliance and we have become impoverished and stained in our damaged relationship.

Our spiritual health is proportional to our intimacy with Jesus.

The underlying problem lies in paying more attention to the world and its pandemic in the physical than to the Holy Spirit and allowing the contagion of His Pandemic on the Spiritual that could be our cure and redemption.

He died that He might love us and that we might love Him. His love flowing in and through us is powerful. We have to recognise our true identity and to learn to be the sons and daughters, the co-heirs in royal priesthood robes. Not the pitiful, blind, naked and soiled.

“For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.”

Jesus says “Here I Am.”

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.”

There is only one thing He has decided that He cannot do and that is: Open the door for us.

“I cannot make you love Me.”

It is the one thing that He wants us to do. He has grace to allow us to make that choice for ourselves.

His desire is that He can remove the grave clothes of death and clothe us in our right robes to transform us from being poor, blind and naked to being seated with Him in heavenly places right now in life.

May Jesus be as contagious to us all as any pandemic and may we welcome Him.

The illustration shows our closeness to Christ in His transfigured Light. The same that we become in union with Him to shine and push back the darkness.
