This week Bro. Leo continues our study on seeing God with part two of “I will see God”.
Last week we seen three examples from the Bible of people who saw God and all three examples were of people who could only see a portion of God (Exo. 33:11, 13-15, Exo. 34:5-6, 8, Gen. 32:24-30, Acts 22:6-9).
This week Bro. Leo leads us on a study of two principles of seeing God, 1) the only condition that will allow us to fully see God and 2) How seeing God in our lives today changes our perspective of our lives today.
1) Our physical bodies have to be changed into glorified bodies (1John 3:2, Phil. 3:20-21, 1Cor. 15:51-52, 54-58, Rev. 21:1-4).
2) Knowing God’s promise of salvation to those who believe allows us to also know that God will deliver us from our trials and tribulations in this life (Psa. 56:13). Job is the perfect example of relying on God’s promise of salvation to also get Him through the many trials and tribulations of his life (Job 19:23-27, Job 16:19-20). We see God in our lives when we are activating His Spirit within us (2Cor. 3:13, 17).
