TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I have torn the veil to give you access to My Presence. Do not look for me in a sermon. Look for me in Goodness. I Am Good and you will find Me when you seek Me there.
IN A MIRROR DIMLY
There are a lot of mysteries in the Kingdom, but who Jesus is to you and who you are to King Jesus should not be one of those mysteries. That should be an ongoing dialogue that you have with God – a constant conversation.
It’s about unveiling Jesus and getting to know Him face to face. There are four different faces or ways you need to know Him. They are described in the four gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Matthew saw Jesus as King, a ruler and warrior. He experienced Jesus’ authority and majesty and it blew Matthew away. On the four faces of the cherubim circling the throne of God, this would be the face of the Lion. That’s how Matthew experienced Jesus.
Mark saw Jesus as a servant and wonder worker – docile, practical, hardworking and intentional. He was Mark’s burden bearer and yours as well. This would be the face of the ox on a cherubim.
Though Luke was not an original disciple of Jesus, he, like us, had a personal encounter with the Lord. It was important for Luke to show Jesus’ humanity. He felt our joy, pain and shame. He can empathize with us. This would be the face of the man on the cherubim.
John sees Jesus as God. Period. He writes about the miraculous, powerful, majestic side of Jesus. John saw Him as straight up supernatural. That would be the face of the eagle on the cherubim.
And if you know Him in these four, very different ways, you can have victory in every single part of your life. When you seek Jesus, you will find Him. When you do, you will experience Him and see Him for who He is – the Way, the Truth, the Life. He is the Word who created and the Redeemer who paid our debt. He is GOOD!
For now we see in a mirror dimly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. – 1 Corinthians 13:12
