"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 HAVE I SEEN HIM? by Oswald Chambers


"After that He appeared in another form unto two of them." Mark 16:12

Being saved and seeing Jesus are not the same thing. Many are partakers of God's grace who have never seen Jesus. When once you have seen Jesus, you can never be the same, other things do not appeal as they used to do.

Always distinguish between what you see Jesus to be, and what He has done for you. If you only know what He has done for you, you have not a big enough God; but if you have had a vision of Jesus as He is, experiences can come and go, you will endure "as seeing Him Who is invisible." The man blind from his birth did not know Who Jesus was until He appeared and revealed Himself to him. Jesus appears to those for whom He has done something; but we cannot dictate when He will come. Suddenly at any turn He may come. "Now I see Him!"

Jesus must appear to your friend as well as to you, no one can see Jesus with your eyes. Severance takes place where one and not the other has seen Jesus. You cannot bring your friend unless God brings him. Have you seen Jesus? Then you will want others to see Him too. "And they went and told it unto the residue, neither believed they them." You must tell, although they do not believe.

"O could I tell, ye surely would believe it!
O could I only say what I have seen!
How should I tell or how can ye receive it,
How, till He bringeth you where I have been?"

 Re: HAVE I SEEN HIM? by Oswald Chambers

I have had a clear view of Jesus. I have
seen Him, felt Him, and I have known Him
in a far deeper way than simply by outward
appearance. I have felt the reality of
His life begin to burn in my heart. I
have seen in Christ the glory of a life
that is totally yielded to the sovereignty
of GOD. That glory has begun to take hold
of me, and I have begun to see this is the
one life GOD expects of any man HE has
made in His image. I have seen the marks
of the cross put upon Him, and by His grace
the marks of the cross have been put upon
me and I am no longer my own; for I am
bought with a price, redeemed by His
precious blood. Yes, I have seen Him--
not in the physical sense only, but in
the inward sense of a deep spiritual
reality. I have had a clear view of
Jesus, and my life will never be the
same again!!
