Good afternoon! Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Today we are testing ourselves with God's definition of revealed.
John 1v31 I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.
When we are baptized this does not give us the Holy Spirit automaticly we have to believe and have faith in the Son of God and Him being our Lord and Savior and be cleansed by His blood from the cross. It is all about what Jesus did for us on the cross sacrificing Himself for us so He could take our place in our hearts so we could change and receive the Holy Spirit. This is why John says here I did not know him, because he did not know Him personally through the Holy Spirit because that is the only true way He is revealed to us. His grace is what saves us from the faith we have in Him being our sacrifice on the cross. John then says I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. He remained and lived in him from that moment to show us when we receive the Holy Spirit it to will remain in us as long as we remain in Him. (John 15v3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you) We are one with the Father has He is one with the Father. Be Baptized with water is a symbol of your humility of accepting the washing of rebirth from the blood of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3v5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.) When our Father's love touches us through His Son Jesus Christ on the cross we will hear him say, "What do you want?" We will say where are you staying I want to live with you, I want to be saved by you and He will reveal Himself to us and say, "Come and you will see". Come and you will see my glory, come and you will see my love for you and the world, come and see how I save you from sin, from sickness, from poverty, from neglect, and from sorrow. Come and I will reveal myself to you if you want to be saved from this life, come and I will show you if you have faith in me you will see me, Come I will reveal myself to you and you will live with me forever! Do you know Him and more importantly does He know the true you? Is the Holy Spirit remaining in you and living in you? If not, you have not told Him what you want or what you want is not to live with Him where he is. Has his love been revealed in you?
Read John 1. I love you with all the love God gives me for you!
