Low Hanging Fruit

29 And while He was praying, the appearance of His face became different, and His clothing became white and gleaming. 30 And behold, two men were talking with Him; and they were Moses and Elijah, 31 who, appearing in glory, were speaking of His departure which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. Luke 9:29–31 (NAS)

I’m sure there’s an in-depth study to conduct here, but the low hanging fruit should be enough for now.

In glory, expect the form of your face to change, but to still be recognizable. I would surely hope so! I certainly expect to be issued a glorified body in glory. Now I would expect Jesus to stand out above the rest, but Moses and Elijah are reported here to appear in splendor.

You will have conversations with fellow glorified inhabitants of heaven, and dare say with Jesus. What would be the point of just being there with him if we can never converse with him. We’ve got all of eternity to get an appointment for heaven’s sake! There will also be able bodied backups for question and answer sessions in the meantime. We don’t have Jesus today but we do have Paul, and Daniel tomorrow.

As an important observation, if Moses and Elijah are available for this meeting, there is a resurrection. I can understand there might be an exception with Elijah, but Moses definitely died since a famous archangel had to argue with the devil over his body (Jude 9).

There is awareness in heaven of earthy activities below as well as an understanding of events yet future. This should be the case until there is a new heaven and earth. Perhaps we’ll have reception up there.

Lastly, there is a by and by with all this to look forward to, but I do recall Jesus, James, John and Peter having very important work to do before they got there.
