“Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
for we shall see Him as He is
There will be a day when we will see Jesus with unhindered direct sight when we meet Him in His immediate presence. We will see Him in His resurrected body. We will not see Jesus hanging on the cross writhing in agony. No, we will see Him in His glorified state as the conquering Son of God.
When we see Jesus in His glorified state, it will transform us into His likeness.
The sight of Jesus face-to-face will transform us because like begets like. A scientific mind grasps scientific truths. We will be able to see Christ because we will be like Him. We become like the person we worship.
Re 1:17, “And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, ‘Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.’”
