A Start for looking at the unseen and the treasure to look forward to

Man can not see God and live (Exodus 10:28; 33:20) but the unseen God wants to connect to His creatures and we are demanded to pray to the unseen God, our Father Who is also the heavenly Father of Jesus, Abraham and many others who worshipped Only One True God, the God of Israel.

For man it is very difficult to believe in something what can not be seen. But the unseen is eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18) and man should know that there in the unseen is the Most High treasure.

Exodus 10:28 (RNKJV)
28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die.

Exodus 33:20 (RNKJV)
20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

2 Corinthians 4:18  (RNKJV)
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Most people have their eyes on the things we can see. They are often blinded by all the material this world can offer them. Materialism is killing many people on this earth in this system of things. instead of looking for perishable things we better look for the imperishable because all things we see have a limit of existence.

Genesis 6:17  (RNKJV)
And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

Job 4:20  (RNKJV)
They are destroyed from morning to evening: they perish for ever without any regarding it.

Jeremiah 6:21  (RNKJV)
Therefore thus saith יהוה, Behold, I will lay stumblingblocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish.

Luke 13:3 (RNKJV)
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Colossians 2:22  (RNKJV)
Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?

The world shall have to come to know that those who prefer the perishable goods could loose a much more interesting future with the imperishable. All of perishable seed, man shall have to work at his character making it set-apart, becoming a child of the seed God has sent forth so that believers in God will be judged and receive approval to enter the Kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 15:51-58 (RNKJV)
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to יהוה, which giveth us the victory through our Master Yahushua the Messiah. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of יהוה, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in Him.

In this world we often have to work very hard and some may think it is all for nothing. For some of them there also may never seem an end to it. But for those who believe in God and what He said there is hope and they look forward to enormous good prospects.

In case you are looking for a better life you should better look first for the One Who can give you a much better life than this perishable one.

You also may be sure that if you are looking for God, God will find you.

Ignatius of Loyola or Mother Teresa would have likewise believed that even as we are looking, and even when we mostly feel lost, God is somehow finding us, whether or not it feels that way to us. Ignatius believed (as I do) that when we set ourselves toward some worthy purpose that transcends our meager strength, we tap into a source of meaning, strength, peace, and courage that is beyond us. We come to realize, in a graced moment, that we are called to some great purpose, that we cannot do it on our own, but that we don’t have to do it on our own. That’s why Ignatius urges, in one after another of his Spiritual Exercises, that we speak to Jesus “in the way one friend speaks to another.” – {If you are looking for God God will find you}

When you start looking for God you have to open your mind and be willing to search the Scriptures, the set-apart Book of books, God has given the world to edify. Those words written down in His Name shall shed light on this world and on what to come. Written to whom it is about to be reckoned those 66 books put together are all connected with each other and should be taken as one unit. All the words in it shall show you the true face of Jehovah Who is the God Almighty, Host of hosts, greater than all gods and King above all kings. The Bible shall also show you who is who and bring you the right way to look for Christ, who is the Way to God.

By that Nazarene man it will be possible to figuratively see God, because he has shown God. At this website we also hope we shall be able to show you Who God is and What He is for us and the world.

We are pleased you found this site and do hope we shall be able to coach you along your way in your quest to God.

Looking forward to finish the race together in the near future.

Wishing you good luck and a good start.
