If Jesus has only been transfigured to you, you will be taken up with either physical manifestations (visions of Jesus/angels, etc.), or with intellectual or emotional religious fervor (Matthew 17:2-3).

This is what happened to Peter. He had received revelation of Jesus the Messiah directly from the Father (Matthew 16:17). Yet, deep down, he was not really seeking God’s interests (Matthew 16:23). As a result, six days later, he got carried away in the moment on the mountaintop and lost sight of the preeminence of Jesus (Matthew 17:4). So, the Father had to send a terrifying cloud over the disciples to remove the competing allegiances, and allow only Jesus to remain.

When we receive revelation from the Father, what we see of Jesus is His INNER life. This life is given to Jesus by the Father (John 5:19-26), and then given to us by Jesus (I John 5:11-12). It is this eternal abundant life that Jesus came to earth to give us (John 10:10).
