God’s Face and Ours 2018-79

God’s Face and Ours  2018-79

A face that would be recognizable, I ask, not mine, His!!! The short answer would be YES, but the long one, has to be clarified. One God, three faces make for a convoluted answer.

Jesus would have been known by others back in His days, as a distinct person and was known by His looks, not as we see Him on pictures being portrayed today or the near past times, but as He was in His time frame. The Son of God, had features then and will have them in the hereafter that will be seen and known as being Jesus, the Son. BUT what He, the Son, looked like then, may not be what He looks like now in Heaven, for all to see.  Well, maybe so, don’t actually know.

Not even Moses had seen the “Father God” the God of the Universe, nor anyone else, then or now. (Genesis 13:20).  So, does He, have facial form, or is His aura that of an unknown, yet, recognizable entity, even in the hereafter? The guess would be, that He DOES have facial form, or the same form we will have, and ALL will know who the “Father God” is, when observed.

Ponder this: The face of God, will be a mirror image of us, each of us. IF you were to look into the eyes of another, or can see by the look, you will see God, and if you look closely, you will see yourself, and by doing so, see God again. Not comparable to others, of another color, creed, or anything Earthly, but more personal to each one of us here on Earth. That is what the “Fatherly God” will be seen to look like in Heaven.

Then there is the Holy Spirit, the third part of the Triune God.  The Holy Spirit is and has been the spirit and its form for identification is what it is, and that is what will be seen, the spirit of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will and has now, the form of the Spirit of God and transcends the normalcy of having to take a human form, unless It wants to do so. But It will be known by all in Heaven for what It is, the Holy Spirit, and all will know when they see It.

The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit will, again, be known without question.  But, also, one more tidbit of info, without any question of who we are, from one another, even with our forms being spiritual and NOT defined by human form, we will know who we are from each other.

The same goes for our more ancient ancestors, who we have no pictures of or data to dwell on for I.D.  We will just KNOW who they are and they will know us also. Their history, their personal stories of life, will be there to know, to observe, to experience and appreciate. The inner connections to one another will not require a DNA test to ascertain who is who, and the relationships; it will be just known by all.

This is going to be exciting for all of us; repeat ALL of us. To recap, the face of God is to be seen, the face of Jesus will be seen again, and the Holy Spirit will infuse us with the knowledge of what it is like. Those that have gone before us will be exposed for us to enjoy and to rejoin with the past.

Peace,

2010 “The Happening” Revisited 2017-08

 2010 “The Happening” Revisited    2017-08

 

7 Years ago on March 3, 2010— The day I was touched by Jesus Christ, found/saw the Glory of the Father and eventually heard the Holy Spirit.  This was the third week of Lent that year.

Someone I know said I was transformed then and became a child of God and disciple of Jesus Christ. Wow, what a moment and what a time period then and even now. The facts of “The Happening” are described in blog # 2015-69 and are in the archives of March of 2015 at my blog site, TheBettsDen.com

Before this date, I was a so- so Christian, going through the motions of being a believer of God and of Jesus Christ.  I was a drifter type religious person, not really committed or even believing wholeheartedly in a Divine being or a man-God who died so that I may have a chance of eternal life.

As I was in sort of a spiritual darkness previously, and as I began to see the light and life of Jesus, I was changed. I am NOT the man I was before then, and have since, become a student or disciple of Jesus in the process.

I struggled for understanding of what occurred. I tried to accept counseling of WHY and perhaps WHAT to do, or become and it was interesting for me.  But, in reality, time is a way of fleshing out the why’s and what’s of life and I believe I now know some of the answers.

My tenure as the lay leader President of the church I belong to, helped me to a degree. It gave me an insight as to the workings of the church and that was important to me at that time.  I learned and tried to lead as best as I could and in the process also found out some things; private things about myself.

Now I am basically on my own, learning more about the Scriptures, about Jesus and accepting the fact that it is about ME and my relationship with the Triune God. It is not about my possibly being an evangelist or anything like that. It is about my learning more about myself and my God and Savior Jesus Christ and I am finding it is a long process.

I had a Reaffirmation of Baptism a few years ago. That simple action meant much to me. That anniversary is coming up too and I look at that date as a milestone also. It was on the day before Easter which is called Paschal Vigil or Vigil Easter. My friend Paul, was my sponsor then and he continues to give me inspiration in my life.

As I have said before, I KNOW there is a God!    He is alive, He is active, He is aware by having His presence with us always. Praise be to God…………………………………………………………………………
