And while He was praying, the appearance of His face became different, and His clothing became white and gleaming. And behold, two men were talking with Him; and they were Moses and Elijah, who, appearing in glory, were speaking of His exodus which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.
I wrote recently about my vision of the Exodus on a retreat this April. The next morning, Sunday the 24th, the vision continued. This time I saw the hands of God with His fingers in the dirt. He seemed to be working on something impossibly small, and He began speaking to me like a teacher.
"Amy, Israel could not respond to my glory. My fire terrified them and they would not look Me in the face, so they never learned my emotions, they never felt My love. Instead they made idols which would not burn, gods they could touch. But still my heart longed for Israel. I still yearned for a bride. And so I did another magic trick – one which confounded the heavens.
I hid My glory in the dirt. My Son became very, very small. He took on a face so men could look at Me and learn My heart, learn My emotions, learn My ways.
How could one man accomplish an Exodus? In Egypt, a million people beheld my glory at one time. This time my Son called each person by name – each man, woman, child."
And then Jesus began speaking to me.
"I was the Passover Lamb. And I descended into hell. And I opened a path from death into life. None can shut it until My return, and whoever will may come. The Father and I are one.
I have a glorious Bride from every tribe and nation and tongue and none can deny her because I have parted the expanse between heaven and earth.
When I rose from the dead, I was full of joy because I walked in both my natures – in glory and in humanity. I ascended to the Father and received the glory which was mine. But I am a man like you, and when you see me in glory you will be like Me for you will see Me as I am.
After the Resurrection, I breathed on you, I touched you, I ate with you so you would know that I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
