“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
(1 John 3:1,2)
I can’t help but think of a song Dottie Rambo wrote and sang years ago, “We Shall Behold Him.”
Let these words capture your heart as we ponder the Truth of today’s verse:
“The sky shall unfold, preparing His entrance;
The stars shall applaud Him with thunders of praise,
The sweet light in His eyes shall enhance those awaiting;
And we shall behold Him, then face to face.
“And we shall behold Him, We shall behold Him,
Face to face, in all of His glory.
O we shall behold Him, We shall behold him,
Face to face, our Savior and Lord.
“The angel shall sound the shout of His coming;
The sleeping shall rise from their slumbering place.
And those who remain shall be changed in a moment;
And we shall behold Him, then face to face.”
Dear friend, can you see it? Reach out with your spirit and let the Lord open your eyes to envision this glorious day that is coming. “We know that when He is revealed we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
Unfathomable joy and wonder!!
“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!”
Repeat after me…”I am a child of God!” Oh my goodness.
Father, open our eyes that we might see!! Open our hearts to receive your love, to understand how wide and how deep and how high your love is! WE are your children, Lord…help us to know how marvelous is Your love. We await Your coming with ready hearts. Praise You, Father!
I am praying for an awakening of Christians to a hunger and thirst for the Living God…to want to behold Him in all His Glory and the Glory of His Son… and I believe it is happening! I believe the separation of true believers from those who are just pew-sitters is taking place now. I want to be part of those who reflect the light of the Lord that will draw others to His Saving Grace!
Mid, that is the cry of my heart also. There is definitely a whole lot of shaking going on! I think that is one reason for Morning Glory – to teach the Word in little snippets for those who want to be set apart but have never been taught how. I love you too Mid. I left you a comment on Solitaire. It made me cry…
