The transfiguration of Jesus is known as the time when, on a mountain top, he became a glorified, blazing ball of light (Luke 9:28-29). Transfiguration occurs when a person's spiritual energy is extremely high because of their level of purity and righteousness, and the intensity of the energy cannot be contained. Not unlike a storm surge that accompanies a flood, during a heightened spiritual experience such as prayer, the spiritual energy breaches the boundaries of the solar plexus and literally floods every cell of the body with light and energy. It also can be compared to a spiritual tornado that catapults out of every cell of the body anything and everything that could possibly block the reflection of God's light. Transfiguration is not a miracle that can be performed by the person. It is a miracle performed by the Holy Spirit of God. At the Second Coming of Jesus, the raptured disciples will all experience a permanent transfiguration (Revelation 7:13-14).
The opposite of transfiguration is demonization--a process by which the person is flooded with darkness. It is not as dramatic an occurrence as transfiguration because the effects generally are not as visible in the spiritual realm. It occurs primarily when someone takes a giant leap from being relatively righteous, and delves into sin, rebellion and transgression. In demonization, if the person has a visible aura, it suddenly begins to grow dark as Satan's demons and/or evil spirits surge into the body, blocking the cells from reflecting the light of God's glory.
Human beings were designed to be "plugged in" to God and to have an aura that glows with the reflection of God's light (see reference in Malachi 4:2 to the sun of righteousness). They are supposed to be the light of the world. Spiritual light from God connotes spiritual life. Darkness, or a dark aura, connotes spiritual death. Spiritual life is available to anyone who genuinely desires it, and is essential to generating spiritual power, the only weapon that can overcome the darkness and evil of today's world.
A growing number of individuals from all levels of society seem to believe that the source of power is alignment with Satan and with darkness. Their human spirits proudly proclaim to the world that they are demons, or are training to become demons. There is no training necessary to the life of a demon other than how to relinquish one's God-given life, spirit and creativity and become a slave to Satan. Instead, their goal should be to have a personal experience of transfiguration. They should be striving to become the brightest star on the earth, visible from the highest heavens. That is God's will for his human creation-life to the full (John 10:10).
