The Bible gives us insight into the physical world we think is real; and into the invisible world that is true reality. The spiritual dimension is more real than our own existence. The physical realm is ending, but the spiritual realm is forever.
The Blind Will See…
Sounds familiar doesn’t it. This is one of the promises of God to those who believe in the coming of His Redeemer, Messiah…His Son Jesus. This promise is to those who have placed their faith in Christ. They will be able to step out in faith, into eternity to live in the Kingdom of God –forever.
Do you remember all of the promises?
• the blind will see… the deaf will hear… the dead will live again…
• the lame will leap …. the dumb will speak praises to the Lamb.
These promises will be kept because they were made by Jesus, the Lord of
ALL Creation who alone became the God/Man who…
• Walked on water! Came to save our sons and daughters!
• Came to deliver you! Calmed a storm with His hand!
• Walks where angels trod!
Jesus the Son of God, the Ancient of Days, the Great I AM of the Old Testament!
These promises and many more belong only to a Spiritually Born Again person. For unless you are Born Again, the physical eyes you see through are spiritually blind. Your physical journey here is like climbing a mountain to get to the top.
When you have arrived you will stand before a door. Your focus on your climb will have been so intense that you will not notice the small sign above the door.
Then you will eagerly reach out and grasp the handle to open the door to the fulfillment of your desires. The handle is painful to your touch…it’s so very hot ! But you will bear the pain and open the door because you will be consumed with what you heard awaits you.
Standing in the open doorway you see a light off in the distance, yet you seem to be standing in shadows. As you look out into the distance a faint path emerges that leads to the light. But as you look down you cannot see the place to put your foot on the path so that you can follow it to the Eternal Kingdom of Light.
Then you will look up and see the little sign. It says…“If you had SEEKED ME with all your heart, mind and soul you would have found me. You have lived your life in darkness yet you have seen a great light and now it is appointed to man once to die, and then the judgment”.
HIS words fall on a soul filled with shadows and a heart and mind that never became renewed; for you had lived your life deaf, dumb and blind to the truth.
Just under the sign is a pull chain attached to a light bulb.
Still not understanding the message you will reach up and pull the chain that’s attached to the light bulb expecting the light to come on and illuminate your path, but instead you will turn ON the Darkness.
Congratulations you have arrived at the place you personally have chosen to spend eternity. You now will be in outer darkness…blind and alone for eternity without hope in a place where …”the dead shall live again.”
Then you will hear HIS VOICE say to you…“ those who live in Darkness have seen a great light ”. And the words HE wanted you to read will now flood into your mind.
Matthew 4:16-17 the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light, and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned.” From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
