TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I am hiding in plain sight waiting for you to ask for a personal encounter with me. I wish to be found by you and to be known by you, just as I know you. Ask for eyes to see Me.
The face of Jesus is not an image. It’s a personal revelation. The word “revelation” means personal, supernatural recognition. Revelation is literally the word “apocalypse.” Our society has a wrong understanding of what apocalypse means.
The definition of “apocalypse” is not total destruction or the end of the world as we know it. Apocalypse means “the unveiling.” It means to reveal something, like pulling a blanket off of something hidden under it.
How Jesus Christ is revealed to us is not through an image. Jesus Christ is revealed to us is through the Ta-Da! It’s the light bulb moment – the moment of clarity – the epiphany. It’s a bombshell, a lightning bolt, and it’s always personal. Always.
Have you had a personal experience with the Lord Jesus lately? Would you recognize it if you did? Look for Him. He shows up in new and different ways every time, but you will recognize one thread that runs through all Jesus encounters: Goodness.
Look for goodness, love, service and selflessness. Jesus is generally hanging out around those things. If you want to see Him, tell Him you want an apocalypse, now! He would love to unveil where He’s been hiding in plain sight.
Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight. – Luke 24:30-31
