1 Corinthians 13:12
Amplified Bible (AMP)12 For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as [a]in a riddle or enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand [b]fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been [c]fully and clearly known and understood [[d]by God].
What this verse tells us is that right now, we can only see in part, because we are still in this body of flesh, we are still living in this world that is controlled by sin, AND WE HAVE ALL THIS STUFF GOING ON AROUND US DISTRACTING US. BUT DON’T YOU DARE WAIVER. DON’T YOU DARE DOUBT. DON’T YOU DARE LOSE YOUR HOPE (YOUR CONFIDENT EXPECTATION). However, there is going to come a day when we stand before God, and we are going to see ourselves AS HE HAS BEEN SEEING US ALL ALONG. We are going to see ourselves as HE SEE US RIGHT NOW: Perfect IN OUR SPIRITS. Because He is seeing us through the blood of Jesus, he is seeing us in our Spirit. But, if we could just perceive in our mind that it is God that is in us, then we can fully know who we are and that is a full fledge family member of God. But, the trials and the tribulations of this life interfere with us, and thus we have our warfare. BUT, IF WE CAN JUST PERCEIVE THAT RIGHT NOW WE ARE ONE WITH THE ALMIGHTY GOD IN CHRIST JESUS BY MEANS OF HIS HOLY SPIRIT, THEN WE CAN EXPERIENCE JESUS IN OUR FLESH TO THE DEGREE THAT WE CAN DO THE WORKS OF JESUS AND WE CAN SEE SIGNS AND WONDERS AND MIRACLES. THIS IS NO TALL TALE. THIS IS THE CRUX OF THE GOSPEL OF THE SHED BLOOD OF JESUS.
AND THAT IS JUST THE BOTTOM LINE TRUTH OF THE MATTER. Even church folk have a problem with this truth, but I am here to tell you one thing… I am going to preach this message until the day I die. I am going to renew my mind to this one fact until the day I die, because the Holy Spirit has revealed it to me. It is no vain philosophy of man. It is no mythological jargon of metaphysics or psychology. This is the WORD OF GOD AND THIS IS WHO WE ARE – HEIRS AND CO-HEIRS WITH JESUS CHRIST AND JUST AS HE IS, SO WE ARE IN THIS WORLD NOW, AND THERE IS COMING A DAY SOON WHEN WE ARE GOING TO PUT ON THE INCORRUPTIBLE AND THE IMMORTAL AND WE ARE GOING TO BE WITH THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS FOREVER AND FOREVER AND WE ARE GOING TO BE LIKE HIM. WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE. NO NO NO I DON’T DESERVE IT, YOU DON’T DESERVE IT, NOBODY DESERVES IT, BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT ISN’T MINE TO CLAIM BECAUSE HE HAS DONE IT FOR ME AND HIS LOVE, HIS GREAT AND MIGHTY LOVE DECREES AND DECLARES THAT I RECEIVE THE TRUTH REGARDLESS OF MY PAST AND SINS BECAUSE HE HAS PAID THE PRICE… IN FULL. That is the one single solitary truth that the enemy does not want us to realize.
Is that the most awesome thing we could ever hear. MY GOD WHAT AN AWESOME GOD WE SERVE. JESUS IS HIS NAME.
