Jesus came to give us sight! Both physical and most of all spiritually. I want us to pray this morning. Lord open my eyes and ears to your truth, Lord give us pure hearts to see and hear your truth so that all spiritual darkness can be unveiled. I speak that into a life today. That today would be the day the scales would fall off your eyes, and you would have a good understanding of who Jesus Christ is. In Jesus’ name Amen.
In Luke this morning I saw a verse that stood out to me (Luke 24:31)
Then their eyes were opened, and they knew Him, and He vanished from their sight.
Now just so you have a better understanding and the context Jesus had already been crucified, dead and now risen. He had already appeared to the two women, and unto Peter, and now to two followers walking and talking about the Lord Jesus reportedly being resurrected while walking to Emmaus which is about 7 miles northwest of Jerusalem. Jesus asked them a question who are you discussing? They tell the risen Savior they are discussing Him! Jesus chided them for not understanding or believing. The followers should have known from the Old Testament what had happened! It wasn’t until after Jesus had broken bread that their eyes were opened and suddenly recognized Him. Their experience with Christ Jesus caused them to run back to Jerusalem and affirm the Ressurection. But even after the disciples had three reports they still did not understand or see how! So we know that Jesus once again appears and eats a broiled piece of fish to prove He is not a Ghost, also appearing with His wounds.
What I understood from this is Christ could appear right in front of us, He could send someone to give us a message from Him. He could eat with us but if we do not know His word we would not truly have the spiritual eyes, mind, or heart to understand, see, hear from our Risen Savior Jesus Christ. If we want to recognize our glorious Savior we have to read His word! So in time we will see Him in everywhere and everything! I’m praying against that veil that is covering your eyes. That the power of Christ will lift and expose His truth to you; He has risen! He tore the veil for you and me! If anyone lacks wisdom and understanding let him ask God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. (James 1:5)
When will you break bread and have your eyes opened and have an understanding? I can give you advice that is about it, but when you sit down with Christ and ask I believe with all my heart He will give you spiritual eyes and give you the understanding of who He is! We know as Christ followers
” For we walk by faith , not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7.
Jesus is active and alive through the counselor also known as the Holy Spirit. So we might not ever physically walk with Christ on this earth, but spiritually we do. He abides in our hearts, mind, and the defender of our souls. So we know by faith that Jesus the Son of God but fully man, also sinless He remained perfect, came to die on a crucifix given up to death for man’s rebellion against God (Sin). Not only did He receive punishment for all humankind but, He was placed in a tomb and sealed. He arose the third day and conquered death and sin declaring victory and restoring man back into eternal life with Him. After appearing to over 500 people Jesus Christ ascended back into heaven, Jesus the Son of God is seated at the right hand of God the Father. Alive and glorious and one day coming back to rule upon this earth. Thank you, Lord! Let us share and glorify You and You alone. In Jesus’s name Amen
