He who said I will never leave you or forsake you, also said I am coming again, providing for us a choice. Some of us choose Him as He is. Spirit and truth. He who is ubiquitous, who fills all and all”, need not to appear physically to come to us for His comings are many. He is not just 1st and 2nd comings. Even now He stands at the door and knocks. To those who open up He feeds. To those who want to see Him visually He is a thief. They fail to receive Him as He is and He leaves them empty handed. What He has to give to them is Himself and this they reject and wait for another.
He who said “lo I am with you throughout the ages” need not be manifest in any other way. He whose name no man can say, is called “The Word of God”. He needs no other introduction. Any name you use of Him is from a truncated understanding of “Him who fills everything every where” all the time. (Eph 4.9) He is “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13.8) He need not become manifest visually to become something more than He already is. He is the Great I Am, and not the soon to be coming king.
He appeared to some behind closed doors in their midst. Even as He said to Paul when He came to him “for this reason I have appeared to you”. Yes the Lord came in His natural construct of spirit “7 times brighter than the sun” . Of this Paul said “the gospel that I preach to you did not come by man, nor was taught by a man but by revelation of Jesus Christ “. Paul knew the Lord not as a carnal man saying “we once knew Christ in the flesh” as a man. “But from now on we know shim like that no more”. This agrees with the testimony of the Holy Spirit given to convict the world of sin. That Christ returned to the Father and we see Him no more (John 16.10) .Christ appeared as a man once at the end of the ages to put away sin and for us to see the attributes of the Father made understandable and manifest through Him. This is why Christ said “he who has seen Me has seen the Father”. Yes. He who is immortal, eternal, and invisible displayed Himself in His Son. I and the Father are one”. They were in the same vessel. Not that the vessel could contain God, but they can display God.
And this is what we are called to do. We are called to display the Father the same way. In this way Christ is “the way” and we are the people of “the way”. (Acts 9.2,19.9,19.23,22.4,24.14,24.22)
We are called saints for this cause. Saints meaning replicates of the Father. Holy and invisible. This is why “the world does not know us because it did not know Him” (1 John 3.1)
Saint means; holy ones who manifest the attributes of the Father. The Father by the Holy Spirit lives vicariously through us. These are the Lords delights.
It is the saints, the Holy ones who have been purified for good works of the spirit to be vessel of honor. He who used a donkey to speak to Balaam is more honored to use the Elect.
“Be careful lest you entertain angels unaware”. Those who carry on with the work of God. The message of salvation. The message that was never detracted.
The Kingdom of God is at hand. The keys are given to enter.
