Ascending unto His TRANSFIGURATION 
Matthew 17:1-5 (KJV)
17 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

By Degrees of GLORY—Ascend 
2 Corinthians 3:18 (KJV)
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMP)
18 And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit.
Many interpretations have been given for these ambiguous words. Here are a few of them:
a) In the Holy Temple courtyard, there was an ultra wide stairway that consisted of fifteen large, semi-circular steps that "ascended" into the inner section of the courtyard. 
b) The Levites, whose job it was to accompany the Temple service with song and instrumental music, would stand on these steps and sing these fifteen psalms.
c) These psalms were sung on a high "ascendant" musical note.
d) ) These psalms were sung starting in a low tone of voice and steadily ascending to a higher one.
e) These psalms were sung by the Jews who ascended from Babylon to Israel in the times of Ezra the Scribe.
f) These psalms were sung by the Jews when they would "ascend" to visit the Holy Temple three times annually for the festivals.
g) These psalms praise, exult and "elevate" God. (KEY)(In Pressure Praise Him)
g) aggadaic explanation Given:
"When King David was digging the Shitin [a stream that ran beneath the Holy Temple, into which the wine libations were poured], the water of the depths arose and threatened to flood the world. David said, 'Is there someone who knows whether it is permitted to write [God's] name on an earthenware shard and we will throw it into the depths and it will subside?' . . . Ahitophel responded, 'It is permitted.' [David] wrote the name on earthenware and threw it into the depths. The depths receded 16,000 cubits. When he saw that it receded greatly, he said, 'The higher the depths, the moister is the ground [which benefits agriculture].' He said the fifteen [songs of] ascents, and the depths rose 15,000 cubits."
His PASSION has Enabled you to BEAR YOURS
Ephesians 3:13 (KJV)

Ephesians 3:13 (AMP)
13 So I ask you not to lose heart at my sufferings on your behalf, for they are your glory and honor.
