Colossians 1:15 – “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”
This verse obviously refers to Christ, when read in context, and speaks to nature of one small aspect of Jesus’ role in the Trinity.
John 1 tells us that Jesus is the Word. The Father and the Spirit have not been seen, but the Word dwelt among men so that God could be seen. Even today, the Bible was preserved by God so that even our generation could look into the scriptures and see the image of God through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Although Christ is the image that we most often associate with Jehovah, even those that walked with Jesus glimpsed the smallest sliver of who God Almighty really is. Jesus is the visible face of the unseen and invisible God, but we cannot even begin to comprehend the fullness of God that is hidden by the sin cursed flesh in which we currently reside.
So many saints are satisfied with what they know about God already. They are lukewarm because they have grown used to the small image of God that they have seen in the Bible and posses no drive to learn more or have their zeal sparked aflame once more.
With revival only 2 days away, I hope that you share my desire to have God show up in such a way as to dumbfound even those that have diligently sought the face of God for decades. I adore the image of Christ, but even daily I desire to know more about those unseen and invisible things that further illuminate the glory, majesty and holiness of God.
To many people have grown accustomed to the image of God that they see when they attend the house of God. They have no desire to see anything else. This stagnation is why we don’t have revival. They’ve gotten bored with seeing Jesus and God will not reveal more of Himself to those that are unimpressed with His darling Son.
Your fellowservant in Christ,
