"Look! He is coming with the clouds and EVERY EYE WILL SEE HIM..." Revelation 1: 7
I am in a study of Revelation right now and oh what a blessing to dig into this blessed book. It is causing me to read every word and every phrase and to really THINK about what it is saying, trying to visualize it in my mind.
In conjunction with this study, I've been reading THE VISION OF HIS GLORY by Anne Graham Lotz. In regard to the verse quoted above, she wrote:
"On the day Jesus returns, everyone will be looking at Jesus. But, hav eyou ever considered where HE will be looking? He will be looking for you! He has told us ," I will come back and take you to be with me" John 14:3 His eyes will be searching the crowds of upturned faces, looking for you!"
That statement captivated me. As we turn to look at Him, He will be looking each of us in the face, eye to eye. Miraculous in that He can do that with EACH ONE OF US at the same time! But, He is God and He can do that. But to me, it just once again signifies how personal He is to each of us. I believe at that moment when our eyes meet is when every knee will bow. Just as John sees Jesus in Revelation and immediately He goes from describing His eyes to describing His feet . Why? Because the moment he saw Jesus eye to eye in His resurrected body, He fell on his face "as dead".
Still, the thought of Him looking at each of us as if we were the only person on earth reminds me once again of His great love. Oh how He loves us! Each of us, individually. He knows us by name. He knows the number of hairs on each of our heads. He knows each thought and the intent of our hearts....EACH OF US. And Psalms tells us that HIS thoughts toward us....each of us...is more than the sands of the sea!!!! Have you ever tried to count just a handful of sand? Multiply that by the billions to the umpteenth power!! That's how much He thinks about you and me. Our finite minds cannot even begin to scratch the surface of that kind of love.
We just cannot fathom that kind of love, but it real just the same. Today I hope you will think about that love...that love that is
Immeasureable.....there are absolutely no limits to His love for you
Infinite....it has no beginning and no end
Unconditional....there are no conditions to His love. There is nothing you can do to make Him love you more and nothing you can do will ever make Him love you less. Your performance does not affect His love for you. HE JUST LOVES....no strings attached.
I hope you know MY JESUS. Because He knows YOU and He loves you with an everlasting love. If you do not know Him, you can and I'd love to tell you how because one day you will see Him face to face, eye to eye and your knee will bow.
