“This entire building is under construction and is continually growing under his supervision until it rises up completed as the holy temple of the Lord himself. This means that God is transforming each one of you into the Holy of Holies, his dwelling place, through the power of the Holy Spirit living in you!”
Ephesians 2:21-22 TPT
Bumblebee and Optimus Prime have nothing on the children of God.
These transforming figures (I know from my Son, Issac) were created as normal- every day vehicles that would transform into heroes in a crisis situation to save the day.
Bumblebee was an average, seemingly small Volkswagen Beetle by day, and powerful transformer by…. crisis…
bad things don’t always just happen in the night…
That’s a Word I sense for someone, right there, before I even get into the good stuff.
Some of you may be caught off guard that your life is under attack in broad daylight- spiritually speaking.
I know, because I’ve been there.
When you feel like because you’ve set your heart to walk in the light, there should be no shadow there.
But this is where feelings, and Truth cut ties.
The Word says:
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4
Notice there was a shadow of death.
A shadow can only be cast where light is present.
So, just because shadows are present, doesn’t mean you’ve failed to keep walking in the Light- or,
That the light isn’t working-
More Good News-
“And this Living Expression is the Light that bursts through gloom— the Light that darkness could not diminish!”John 1:5 TPT
I walked through the valley of shadows of death for a season, actually multiple seasons.
Each time I transformed.
And now, here I am, by the Grace of God, I came over.
And I want you to take this testimony today, and come on over as well.
You’re walking through it-
Whatever it is.
In all of those battles that the Transformers fought, they went through it–
But they overcame their enemies.
And you, precious one, have to see the GREATER ONE inside of you.
You’re not just an every day vehicle.
He is inside of you-
the Light that no amount of darkness could or can put out.
But I want to show you something that I’ve found in my transformation process.
“who were born, not of blood [natural conception], nor of the will of the flesh [physical impulse], nor of the will of man [that of a natural father], but of God [that is, a divine and supernatural birth—they are born of God—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].”
John 1:13 AMP
You and I- were His idea!
The idea of transforming to help save the world-
That was His idea, not mine or yours.
So, what’s the big revelation, then you ask?
The creator of the Transformers crafted them to do what He intended them to do.
But more than a craftsman is our Father.
The first line of business in His heart was for us to transform from one kingdom to another.
Jesus gave us that power.
“But those who embraced him and took hold of his name were given authority to become the children of God!”
John 1:12 TPT
When we were birthed into His Kingdom, we were equipped to do Kingdom things.
The equipping wasn’t on our own accord.
He knew what we would need and He sent it, Him, rather.
Jesus is our new ride- our vehicle, if you will.
We start from becoming His children, then we grow into His image-
or, I should say, everything He imagined us to be!
The more we allow Him to transform us, the more we help save the world.
It’s not our ability, as we read-
not by human initiative, or by your own striving that God chose you,
It’s because He longs to see you rise to your potential, and that happens through transformation.
Brothers and Sisters, don’t get weary in the process.
You’re going through.
Jesus has never lost a battle.
He made a spectacle of hell and the grave-
(that’s Truth, compared to what we feel.)
As we realize that, and allow our lives to transform and line up with that Truth, darkness is expelled.
We work with Him to save the world.
