Can We Ever See God or Not?: Yes, you can see Him and also be close to Him,
God loves His own and he always appears to them. Look at the way God appeared to Jacob at Bethel:
Jacob was sleeping, he dreamt and saw a raised staircase, the foundation on earth but the top in heaven
then angels were ascending and descending on it, and the LORD stood above it and said:
“I am the LORD God of Abraham, your father and the God of Isaac, the land on which you lie,
I will give to you and your descendants, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go
and I will bring you back to this land, for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you” In Genesis 28:10-15 (KJV).
Also when Moses was with the Lord at a meeting tent: Moses took a tent and pitched it outside a camp,
far away from the camp and he called it the meeting tent, anyone who wanted advice
from the Lord would go to the meeting tent. When Moses entered the tent, a column of cloud
would come down and stand at the tent’s entrance while the Lord talked with Moses,
when people saw the column of cloud standing at the tent’s entrance, they all bowed down to
the Lord, In this way, the Lord used to speak to Moses face-to-face, like two friends talking to
each other. In Exodus 33:7-11(KJV).
That’s why you can see Him and also be close to him. Let’s look at the way God appeared to Isaac:
When Isaac went up from Gerar to Beer-sheba, the Lord appeared to him at night and said,
“I am the God of your father Abraham, don’t be afraid because I am with you.
I will bless you and I’ll give you many children for my servant Abraham’s sake.”
So Isaac built an altar there and worshipped in the Lord’s name, Isaac pitched his tent there,
and his servants dug a well. In Genesis 26:23-25 (KJV).
With my eyes, can I see Him and be close to Him? Yes, you can see Him and also be close to
Him, when a woman gives birth to twins, it’s the one that raises his/her hands up that the mum
will carry, that is how it is between God and we humans, it depends on how close we are to Him
just like the child that raises his/her hands. can we ever see God or not?:
Jesus said in 1 John 4:17:Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness
in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world (KJV).
When God created adam, He always appeared to adam, He took adam as a friend, and when He
saw that adam is lonely, the Lord caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he was asleep and
He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh in its place, then the rib which the LORD had
taken from adam He made it into a woman,
and He brought her to him. in Genesis 2:21–22(KJV).
But when adam and eve ate the forbidden fruit, that’s how sins came into all human life.
Sin is the reason why we can’t see God because
the Lord despises sin a lot, if humans can flee from sin, we won’t only just see Him,
but He’ll live in us, the person that does evil to his fellow human,
God can’t live in that person, as I said earlier, sin is the reason why we can’t see God
because God wants us to live a righteous life,
Moses saw the Lord face to face, many times because he obeyed His word.
The Lord said in Isaiah 56 “Thus saith the Lord, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my
salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man that doeth
this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and
keepeth his hand from doing any evil. Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined
himself to the Lord, speak, saying, The Lord hath utterly separated me from his people: neither
let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.For thus saith the Lord unto the eunuchs that keep
my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;Even unto
them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and
of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. Also the sons of
the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord,
to be his servants, everyone that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my
covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of
prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine
house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.The Lord God, which gathereth the
outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto
him.All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest. His watchmen
are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down,
loving to slumber. Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are
shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to there own way, every one for his gain, from
his quarter. Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and
to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant (KJV).
I can see Him with my waking eyes: the Lord despises sin a lot, we should all wear the garment
of rightouesness, we should all take the Lord as our friend
because you won’t love to hurt your friend, whatever he despises, you also despise it,
why can’t we be the friends of He that created us? Because He created us in His image.
Jesus said in John 17:26:And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it:
that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them(KJV).
so we need to be like Him and work with Him so that he can work with us. The Lord we serve is a lovely God
but as I said earlier, God despises sin, our sins make Him stay away from us, if we persecute sin,
nothing will stop us from seeing Him right here on earth, just like the way he appeared to Moses,
Abraham, Adam, Noah, Elijah, Elisha, and many more. He can also appear to you and I, it
depends on the relationship between us and God.
Jesus said in 1 John 3:1:Behold,what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not (KJV).
He also said in John 14:1-3:Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again,
and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (KJV).
Hear what Jesus said, there are many mansions in the house of the Lord, and by the time you
and I finish our business on earth,
we ought to be in the mansion of the Lord up there, in heaven, as Jesus said. If you want to be in the mansion of the Lord,
you need to be His friend and when you’re His friend, you will surely see Him.
For you to see Him you need to live a righteous life so that He will be with you and not forsake you,
in times of peace and trouble, He won’t forsake you. The Bible says in Romans 8:38-39:
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,
nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord (KJV).
I Can See Him With My Waking Eyes:Behold, what you don’t know is bigger than you, you
shouldn’t hesitate to follow God so that you will see Him.
I pray into your life these prayers that:
1.You won’t just see God but you will make heaven and the power to rise without falling again shall abide in you in Jesus name Amen
