Why is God not visible ? Why the game of hide and seek ? I believe there is a God, but I have no idea as to why the hiding game. I know faith is suppose to enter into the whole thing according to the Christians, but it makes no sense to me. Why not expose yourself for all to see, and converse with, so that confusion about the nature of reality will no longer be confusion.
God wants very much to be seen. Perhaps God wants that more than anything.
Now, what would it look like to see God? According to the Bible ultimately it looks like the Man Jesus Christ. He was God manifested in the flesh.
This is how God WANTS to be seen, as a glorious and holy radiant righteousness eminating from a human being.
The Apostle John was with Jesus for three and one half years and wrote in his Gospel:
"No one has ever seen God; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him" (John 1:18)
The man Jesus Christ defined God the Father, manifested God the Father, and expressed God so that God could be seen. This is the way God wants to be seen. He wants to be seen as the life lived out in the person who is one with Him.
"Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father and it is sufficient for us.
Jesus said to him, Have I been so long a time with you, and you have not known Me Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how is it that you say, Show us the Father?
Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak from Myself, but the Father who abides in Me does His works.
Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; but if not, believe because of the works themselves." (John 14:8-11)
To see Jesus was to see God for He is the man united and mingled with God.
So what about today? God wants to manifest Himself not in one indivdual Man but in a corporate collective of those who follow Him to ALSO be one with the Father.
IF you are concerned about the seeing of God you should ask Christ to come into your life and wholely take over your heart. Then Jesus Christ will fill and saturate you - gradually more and more, and those around you will see God.
The key to seeing God is for us to allow God to come into our beings.
