WHO shall SEE the LORD?

 

The LORD JESUS said:

Matthew 18:3

King James Version

3 And said, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, 

and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter 

into the kingdom of heaven.


Ever seen the face of GOD?

JESUS has got the answer, when apostle Philip asked:

John 14:8

King James Version

8 Philip saith unto him, 

Lord, 

show us the Father, 

and it sufficeth us.


And the LORD replied:

John 14:9-12

King James Version

9 Jesus saith unto him, 

Have I been so long time with you, 

and yet hast thou not known me, 

Philip? 

he that hath seen me hath seen the Father

and how sayest thou then, 

Show us the Father?

10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, 

and the Father in me? 

the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: 

but the Father that dwelleth in me, 

he doeth the works.

11 Believe me that I am in the Father, 

and the Father in me

or else believe me for the very works' sake.

12 Verily, verily, 

I say unto you, 

He that believeth on me, 

the works that I do shall he do also; 

and greater works than these shall he do; 

because I go unto my Father.


The LORD tells us more:

Matthew 5:8

King James Version

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: 

for they shall see God.


Matthew 7:21-23

King James Version

21 Not every one that saith unto me, 

Lord, Lord, 

shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; 

but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, 

Lord, Lord, 

have we not prophesied in thy name? 

and in thy name have cast out devils? 

and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, 

 never knew you: 

depart from me, 

ye that work iniquity.


Matthew 23:39

King James Version

39 For I say unto you, 

Ye shall not see me henceforth, 

till ye shall say, 

Blessed is he that cometh 

in the name of the Lord.


John 14:6-7

King James Version

6 Jesus saith unto him, 

I am the way, 

the truth, 

and the life: 

no man cometh unto the Father, 

but by me.

7 If ye had known me, 

ye should have known my Father also: 

and from henceforth ye know him, 

and have seen him.


John 14:19-20

King James Version

19 Yet a little while, 

and the world seeth me no more; 

but ye see me: 

because I live, 

ye shall live also.

20 At that day ye shall know 

that I am in my Father, 

and ye in me, 

and I in you.


John 14:21

King James Version

21 He that hath my commandments, 

and keepeth them, 

he it is that loveth me: 

and he that loveth me 

shall be loved of my Father, 

and I will love him, 

and will manifest myself to him.


Apostle Paul wrote:

Hebrews 12:14

King James Version

14 Follow peace with all men, 

and holiness, 

without which no man shall see the Lord:


Apostle John wrote:

1 John 3:2

King James Version

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.


For all who long to see the LORD, seek Him first.

Psalm 14:2

King James Version

2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, 

to see if there were any that did understand, 

and seek God.


We must believe in JESUS.

John 14:1

King James Version

14 Let not your heart be troubled: 

ye believe in God, 

believe also in me.


We must follow His commandments.

John 14:15

King James Version

15 If ye love me, 

keep my commandments.


We must be born again.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


If we love JESUS, we won't merely see Him.

He will LIVE in us.

John 14:23

King James Version

23 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

If a man love me, 

he will keep my words: 

and my Father will love him, 

and we will come unto him, 

and make our abode with him.
