Transformed Part 3

  1. 1. Transformed: Part 3 Rev. Samuel Robles Jr., M.Div. July 19, 2009
  2. 2. Transformers: More than meets the eye
  3. 3. 7 days make one week 7 days without God makes one weak Transformation requires 100%!
  4. 4. The Transfiguration Matthew 17: 1-8
  5. 5. Six days later, three of them saw that glory. Jesus took Peter and the brothers, James and John, and led them up a high mountain. His appearance changed from the inside out, right before their eyes. Sunlight poured from his face. His clothes were filled with light. Then they realized that Moses and Elijah were also there in deep conversation with him. 4Peter broke in, "Master, this is a great moment! What would you think if I built three memorials here on the mountain one for you, one for Moses, one for Elijah?” 5While he was going on like this, babbling, a light-radiant cloud enveloped them, and sounding from deep in the cloud a voice: "This is my Son, marked by my love, focus of my delight. Listen to him.” 6-8When the disciples heard it, they fell flat on their faces, scared to death. But Jesus came over and touched them. "Don't be afraid." When they opened their eyes and looked around all they saw was Jesus, only Jesus. - The Message
  6. 6. A mountain experience  Mountains have been associated with God, worship, prayer, and events.  Moses spoke to God on Mount Sinai. (Exodus)  Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount” (Matt. 5-7)  Jesus was even tempted on a high mountain (Matt. 4:8)  Jesus sought the mountain for his own prayer and devotion (Matt.14:23)  It was on a high mountain that the disciples see Jesus transformed.
  7. 7. “listen to him”  God again affirms Jesus as His son.  Baptism of Jesus (Matt. 3:17)  They/We are still lacking faith.  They/We still need further instruction.
  8. 8. “Rise, and have no fear”  The disciples were scared.  But Jesus came to them.  Jesus touched them.  Jesus spoke to them.  Beautiful Christology!
  9. 9. 2 Chronicles 7:14 “…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
  10. 10. Be transformed by the true Transformer!
