The Account of the Transfiguration of Christ and what it means

Mark and Luke record the transfiguration of Christ, and the following is Luke's account

"And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.

And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:

Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.

But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him...

While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.

And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen." (Luke 9:28-36)

This is similar to what happened in the Americas, when Christ appeared to them as well.  

What Glorious words! That the Lord conversed with Moses and Elias about his coming atonement that he would "accomplish." 

Here is another example of the voice of the Father being heard, testifying of his Beloved Son.  The voice of the Father is only heard at sacred times, like the first vision.  

This confirms that the atonement was prefigured before the world began, and was a part of God's original plan to redeem his children.  Everything has happened according to God's plan.  

May we ever be grateful for that, and come unto Christ, is my prayer.
