Seeing God

WEDNESDAY

 

Believers will see God as He is. God is Spirit (John 4:24). Presently our existence is primarily MATERIAL/spiritual but in heaven our existence will be SPIRITUAL/glorified material, enabling us to see and experience our Creator, Sovereign God.

 

NAU 1 John 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.

 

NIV 1 John 3:2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

 

KJV 1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

    We have a lot to look forward to when we become Spiritual/glorified material which is a gift that has been given freely through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is an incomparable gift.

    My name is william and spirit appeared to me 11 years ago , i realise now after allthe years i had a incarnation. Since then all my changed from old to new , i got divorce to a woman i was with for 15 years and my plumbing and heating buisness ended, but still have a beautiful daughter grace. Seeing spirit was a total electric shock which changed my life completely since then the only information i found that explains about this experiance was a book by alice E baily the light of the soul.

    RESPONSE:

    William:

    I am delighted that you found my blog and have responded to me.

    However, I am also alarmed by the brief description that you have provided about ‘seeing a spirit’ 11 years ago, ‘having an incarnation’, and using Alice E Bailey’s writings to understand your experience. I do not doubt your experience BUT I must confidently assert that your experience is NOT with the unique, true, living God described in the Bible and portrayed on my blog. Rather, it describes an experience with the UNholy spirit (aka Satan or the devil) who is actively deceiving you and working to keep you from knowing the True and Only God.

    A true experience with God is authoritatively described in only one book – THE BIBLE! A careful reading of the Bible will show the following:

    1) The True God created the Heavens and the Earth (Genesis 1:1);
    2) The True God created a man and a woman, put them in a special area of creation, allowed the man and woman to experience His presence and gave them one command enabling them to continue living in His presence (Genesis 2);
    3) Man violated the True God’s one command after the woman was deceived by the false god (disguised as a serpent) which resulted in the man and woman being cast from the presence of God (Genesis 3);
    4) God promised the man and the woman a God-Man redeemer who would restore them into the presence of the True God (Genesis 3:15);
    5) This God-Man redeemer is identified by other Bible prophecies and in history as Jesus the Messiah who lived about 2,000 years ago who was virgin born (in fulfillment of the prophecy given in Isaiah 7:14) in the village of Bethlehem (in fulfillment of prophecy – Micah 5:2) as an heir of King David’s (again in fulfillment of prophecy – Isaiah 9:7) who was declared by God to be the Son of God (Matthew 3:17) and who claimed to be the Son of God (John 8:58) but died sacrificing Himself to the wrath of God on man’s behalf (in fulfillment of prophecy – Isaiah 53:5 and confirmed in Romans 5:6) so that mankind might re-enter into the presence of God having been DECLARED RIGHTEOUS after affirming confidence in these truths revealed in the Bible.

    William, we are warned that the false god appears as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14 ‘And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light’) whose goal is to deceive mankind and prevent them from being restored into the presence of the True God. He has many deceptive methods – one which you experienced 11 years ago and believe to be explained by Alice E Bailey. Your experience was not initiated by the True God, but the false god whose goal is to keep you from the truth. I would urge you to renounce your experience and the teachings of Alice E Bailey. Instead, I would encourage you to enter into the real spiritual experience revealed in the Bible, an experience that results from believing the Bible truths summarized above and affirming them to be realized not in this life but at your physical death.

    I have no doubt that you experienced something 11 years ago and that it changed your life. However, you cannot experience the True God unless you confidently affirm the Bible truths identified above. To reject these truths that identify Jesus the Messiah as mankind’s Redeemer is to remain separated from God not only in this life but in the life to come.

    I pray that the ‘eyes of your heart would be enlightened to understanding the hope of the calling that is in Jesus (Eph 1:18).
