When I see a picture of one of my children or my wife it makes my heart flutter. There is just a special love I have for them, knowing that they are mine, and how precious they are, makes me feel special. The above verse states the obvious, that we have not seen Jesus, but through the eyes of faith we love him. Jesus told Thomas “because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed; blessed are those who have not seen me and believed. Jesus says about those of us who have not seen Jesus that we are blessed because we believe. If we are blessed even when we haven’t seen him, think about how blessed we will be when we do see him. Let us look as some verse that describe how amazing seeing Jesus will be.
The face of Christ is so wonderful that the bible declares: Rev 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
When Nebuchadnezzar saw Jesus in the fiery furnace his image was undeniable. Dan 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
When Balshazzar saw the hand of God it made him tremble with fear. Dan 5:5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king's palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.
Dan 5:6 Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another.
When Moses saw the glory of God it made his face shine.
Exo 33:18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.
Exo 34:29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.
The vision of the glorified Christ inspired Peter so much that he claimed that he would build a temple. Mat 17:2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
Mat 17:4 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.
Yes, the sight of Jesus is going to be wonderful, and there are some things that will happen when we see him.
1.) Our faith shall end in sight.
1Co 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
The reason charity is the greater of the 3 is because faith and hope will end the day we see Jesus.
Won’t it be wonderful not wondering what God wants us to do in life anymore. I remember all the times trying to determining if it was Gods will to get a certain job, or to move to Minnesota and start a church. All these things were acts of faith upon the peace that God had placed within my heart.
2.) Corruption shall end
1Jn 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.
When we see Jesus we will be like him, our corruptible body will be changed into an incorruptible body.
Our sinful nature will be gone as well, and there will be no more battle with sin.
3.) We will worship him
Mat 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
Looking forward to see Jesus,
