“A second reason Elijah was chosen for the transfiguration”
by Morning Meditation   
December 10th, 2008

ANOTHER REASON MAY BE FOUND IN THE PECULIAR CIRCUMSTANCES UNDER WHICH THEY LEFT THE WORLD. Moses died, not by disease or by natural decay, but beneath the kiss of God. His spirit passed painlessly and mysteriously to glory, while God buried his body. Elijah did not die. Disease and old age had nothing to do in taking down the fabric of his being. He did not sleep; but he was "changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye." We may not penetrate into the secrets of that mysterious borderland, which these two passed and repassed, in their holy ministry to the Savior's spirit; but we feel that there was something in the method of their departure from our world, which made that passage easier. - F. B. Meyer
