9 Have I Seen Him?
that He appeared in another form unto two of them.” Mark 16:12
Being saved and seeing Jesus are not the
same thing. Many are partakers of God’s grace who have never seen Jesus. When
once you have seen Jesus, you can never be the same, other things do not appeal
as they used to do.
Always distinguish between what you see
Jesus to be, and what He has done for you. If you only know what He has done
for you, you have not a big enough God; but if you have had a vision of Jesus
as He is, experiences can come and go, you will endure “as seeing Him Who is
invisible.” The man blind from his birth did not know Who Jesus was until He
appeared and revealed Himself to him. Jesus appears to those for whom He has
done something; but we cannot dictate when He will come. Suddenly at any turn
He may come. “Now I see Him!”
Jesus must appear to your friend as well
as to you, no one can see Jesus with your eyes. Severance takes place where one
and not the other has seen Jesus. You cannot bring your friend unless God
brings him. Have you seen Jesus? Then you will want others to see Him too. “And
they went and told it unto the residue, neither believed they them.” You must
tell, although they do not believe.
“O could I tell, ye surely would believe
O could I only say what I have seen!
How should I tell or how can ye receive
How, till He bringeth you where I have
