Seeing God, it’s a big theological term, but all it means is , seeing Him in the situations ,in the functioning of our mundane lives….there are times when we are so lost in our efforts,so lost in our wanderings, we do not have a clue about why things are happening against our logic, against our best deductions, we cannot see beyond the problem ,beyond the mountain and our plans to conquer it….this is simply when we cannot see the work of God.
Therefore BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD
Even David had a time in his life when he dint realise how far he was from God.
The Pharisees saw God but their eyes were still blinded to know that it is the Messiah they were waiting for.
When we see God , our perception of our lives and things happening in it changes, we can never look at life the same way again, like Saul who encountered Christ, once we know the truth, however unwilling our hearts are we will still not be the same.
So then who can see God?
The pure….this was such a biblical and religious term, no one in their right mind can call themselves pure , so then no one can experience God.i thought it was a never ending loophole.
Purity is not the absence of sin or unrighteousness, it is not even the art of being holy
It is being an infant, a child , devoid of the corrupted Mind.
James 4: writes Purify your hearts, you double minded people…what exactly is this double mind?it is when we are one thing and think of ourselves to be one thing…we think we have our shit together, we think we are better than the people we despise because we don’t commit the same sins, we judge ourselves based on our actions, based on what suits us..on one hand we say we trust our lives with God , but on the other we still hope that all our deepest desires are fulfilled.,we are not who we think we are, we know we aren’t pure , but not because of the sins we label but because of the dark corners we compromised , the corners we don’t even consider wrong, the justifications we provide for them….
How do we know about our double mind?
Heb 12:4- The word, is a discerner of thoughts and intents of the heart, piercing through the division of Soul and spirit, bone and marrow,
If there is a part in you, that you yourself dint think to be true, allow it to fall on the sword of the truth..Because The Lord looks at the heart, at things we are blind to.
