And as He was praying, the appearance of His countenance became altered (different), and His raiment became dazzling white [ flashing with the brilliance of lightning].
 And behold, two men were conversing with Him--Moses and Elijah,
 Who appeared in splendor and majesty and brightness and were speaking of His exit [from life], which He was about to bring to realization at Jerusalem.
 Now Peter and those with him were weighed down with sleep, but when they fully awoke, they saw His glory (splendor and majesty and brightness) and the two men who stood with Him.
What about Mose's mountain top experience?
When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the Testimony in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the LORD.~Ex. 34:29
Is it even possible today to have a mountaintop experience such as these? I believe so! We are to search our God out so desperately for these. It is when we meet God on our mountain top that we will proclaim Psalm 19:8:
Sometimes my mountaintop is my red paisley devotional chair. Sometimes it is within my church. Sometimes it is that special cabin tucked in the middle of Missouri that my husband and I try to escape to each year. God is there. And He is able to transform my heart, my mind, my countenance.
Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. ~Psalm 34:5
J.B. Cowman in his book "Stream in the Desert" wrote:
Joseph Parker, an English Congregationalist preacher of the nineteenth century, one said, "if we, as the church, do not get back to the spiritual visions, glimpses of heaven, and awareness of a greater glory and life, we will lose our faith. Our alter will become nothing but cold, empty stone, never blessed with a visit from heaven." And this is what the worlds need today-people who have seen their Lord...come close to Him! Perhaps He will take you today to the mountaintop-the same place He took Peter and his blundering, and James and John.
I want this mountain top experience. I need this mountain top expereince. To see Jesus, every day, in everything, and then to radiate His joy. That is my desire.
Have you been to your mountaintop today? Are you radiant?
