116. Caterpillars, Butterflies and Superheroes

Mike Parsons
with Jeremy Westcott – 

We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord the Spirit
(2 Corinthians 3:18).

Transformation, transfiguration, change, metamorphosis: they are all English translations of the same word in the Bible.

We are all in the process of change. You might have noticed we have a butterfly on our logo. A butterfly is not the same as a caterpillar, although it comes from a caterpillar. And sons of God, sons of light, will not be the same as we were before being transformed into the image of Jesus. As we saw, sons will have 12 active DNA strands; we will be actively fulfilling our destinies, and our full supernatural abilities will be restored.

I love films and TV programmes about superheroes. There are a whole load of them out there, because the writers are picking up on something that is coming out of heaven. Why do I like them so much? Because I know those are some of the abilities I am going to have. I am going to be like Superman, because that is what Jesus was like (except He didn’t have to worry about Kryptonite because the devil had nothing on Him). And He was like that in a perverse and unbelieving generation, whereas we are going to be in the midst of the greatest revival the world has ever seen, surrounded by millions of supernatural beings like ourselves, and we are going to do greater works than He did.

Let’s get back to the caterpillar. In the pupa stage, the caterpillar’s DNA is literally turned to complete mush. It’s a whole furnace of activity in there and eventually a butterfly comes out, which can fly. You can watch the whole thing in this short video clip:

Do you want to fly? I want to fly in my destiny. I don’t want to be a chicken flapping its wings and not going anywhere, I want to be an eagle, flying, fulfilling everything that God’s got for me. I am sure this is one reason prophetic people among us are seeing eagles.

For God who said ‘light shall shine out of darkness’ is the One who shone in our hearts, to give light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ
(2 Corinthians 4:6)

That light and that knowledge are shining into our hearts to transform us and bring us into the place where we are demonstrating the glory of God.

Now, if you don’t really know God, then firstly you need to meet Him for yourself, be re-connected to Him, and in relationship with Him surrender your life to Him day by day. Once you know God, you can start to engage your destiny, day one, now. Your past is forgiven and wiped out and you have a new future.

It’s our destiny, our inheritance, but we have to take it. We have to choose to line up with God’s desires for us, surrender to our destiny, and then we can be restored back to original creation. We can become what we were always supposed to be.
