KING ETERNAL - PART 6
FRIDAY 23 JUNE 2023
Having analysed and looked at God's attributes in depth, such as King eternal and immortal, let's consider His invisible manifestations as an invisible God. More below!
Reference: 1 Timothy 1:17 New International Version (NIV) "Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen."
God is a Spirit. And that's why He is invisible. For instance, the Bible says, "The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, He will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you." God is a Spirit without a body, but His Son, Jesus Christ, is a Spirit with a body. And I will explain further - shortly.
Every human being on earth exists as a spirit being, and also existed as a spirit, even before they were born of a woman. So when your spirit was ready to put on the appearance of a human shape, your parents developed the unquenchable urge for sexual intimacy. However, from the spiritual standpoint, it was your spirit that inspired the urge that led to their copulation because you were ready to descend from the supernatural realm to the natural world, which requires a physical body. For this reason, every force that is needed to magnetize your parents under the influence of sexual intimacy had to be applied on earth realm.
Now that you have arrived in the human flesh, you must be born again in order to spend eternity with an invisible God (John 3:6 NLT). We serve an invisible God, who is a Spirit; He has no human body at all. But Jesus Himself has a glorified body right now in heaven. Why? It was because He had come in human flesh and experienced the earth's physical laws. Before Jesus was born of a woman, He was a pure Spirit, exactly like God, meaning that He was a Spirit without flesh and He functioned as the Word of God. Got it? However, anyone who has been born on earth has his spirit clothed in a body, including Jesus Christ. To that effect, Colossians 1:15 says, "Christ is the visible image of the invisible God..." (NLT). Notice that in this Scripture, Christ is God's visible image, but God is invisible. Christ has been seen in the human flesh, but God has never been in human flesh.
The Bible noted that Christ Jesus became flesh, but God has never become flesh. John 1:14 reads, "The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth" (NIV). More so, John 1:18 says, "No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is Himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made Him known" (NIV). How did Jesus make God known? By taking a look at all of creation which has been made or created through Christ and by Christ Himself, becoming flesh and making His dwelling among humankind. Zero wonder Romans 1:20 (VOICE) reads, "These people are not ignorant about what can be known of God, because He has shown it to them with great clarity. From the beginning, creation in its magnificence enlightens us to His nature. Creation itself makes His undying power and divine identity clear, even though they are invisible; and it voids the excuses and ignorant claims of these people."
God is invisible on earth, yet His Spirit and Kingdom are at work in those who believe in Jesus and have received salvation which is in Christ. As recorded in Luke 17:20-21, One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, "When will the Kingdom of God come?" Jesus replied, "The Kingdom of God can't be detected by visible signs. You won't be able to say, 'Here it is!' or 'It's over there!' For the Kingdom of God is already among you" (NLT). The Kingdom of God is blossoming in the new creation, although it is invisible here on earth. God's invisible Kingdom in us who are born again, is where He reigns as King because the saints have received His Kingdom by virtue of new birth, who now belong to the holy hill of Zion. Stay tuned for part 7, in order to gain notable insight into the revelation knowledge of Almighty God, as the only God. Shalom!
Scripture Reading - Exodus 33:20; Hebrews 11:27; 1 Timothy 6:16; 1 John 4:12.
Guided Prayer: Precious Father and supreme Deity, I thank you concerning the vastness of the riches of your glory, as well as the depth of the supernatural wisdom and knowledge in Christ. You are the invisible God, full of godly pleasures, boundless power, and glorious riches. I prove your wisdom often and I find it to be right; hence I'm enthralled and enraptured by your eternality, immortality and invisibility, which have blended my thought pattern with the code of your supreme perfections, in Jesus' Name, Amen!
