 Know:

Since the beginning of creation, God has always appeared in person to His people. For example:

  • He walked with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day.
  • He appeared over and over to Abraham–yes, in person.
  • He visibly appeared to Moses, standing at the door of Moses’ tent to talk with him “face to face, as a man speaks to his friend” (Exodus 33:11).

And Jesus told us that it is still His will to appear to us–to encounter us in person.

In John 14:21, Jesus said:

‘He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.'”

Are you hungry for these kinds of personal encounters with Jesus?

More than hungry; are you lovesick for Him? Do you desire to know Him in this way? Do you yearn to see His face?

And more importantly, do you keep His commandments, so that He can fulfill this promise and manifest Himself to you?

If you don’t keep His commandments yet, don’t beat yourself up. Jesus doesn’t beat you up! Instead, Jesus uses questions like this to bring you awareness of the state of your own heart.

In John 15:4-5, Jesus spoke these encouraging words:

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”

If you do not yet keep Jesus’ commandments, He will help you begin today … if you want to!

Without Him, you can do nothing. But when you make your life all about Him, finding your life in Him, then you will bear much fruit. 🙂

He will help you so much.

Keeping His commandments will be a growing process. You won’t be perfect at it right away, but you will learn and grow as fast as you set your mind to do. And the whole time, you will grow closer and closer to Him.

Also, know that you cannot do it on your own; the only way you can do it is to keep your eyes on Jesus, and He will draw you so close to Himself that you won’t want to disobey Him anymore.

When you keep your eyes on Jesus, you will lose your appetite for anything that makes Him sad.

You will look on the face of the One that you love, and you will become so wasted with love for Him that no one, and nothing, but Him will matter.

When you decide to walk with Him, keep your eyes on Him, and live for Him in all your choices, then you can experience the fullness of all His promises–including His promises to manifest Himself to you in person. You will draw close to Him like this, even as you grow–and even if you make mistakes!

Do you want this?

Pray:

“Father God, in Jesus’ name, I desire to see You. I want to see Jesus. I want to see Your glory and Your face.

Lord Jesus, I know that I need to become obedient to You and keep Your commandments in order to be close to You like that. So please help me. Please draw me close to You, and help me to keep my eyes on Jesus.

And Jesus, please show me Your glory. Even as I learn and grow, please manifest Yourself to me personally. I want to look on Your face, for I love you. Thank You, Lord. Thank You, Father. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Listen:

“Show Me Your Glory” by Jesus Culture, featuring Kim Walker-Smith. This song is the cry of my heart, and I believe it will be yours too. Pray through this song as you listen!

  10. Rebecca L Jones says:

    I know people who would disagree, quoting that no man has seen God. But Jesus said if you have seen me, you’ve seen the Father, I think Jesus is who they walked with.

  11. Tamie Tyra says:

    A double portion blessing for me. I’ve seen the Lord’s presence manifesting in my life many times, Ive felt His touch during loss and during praise. The genteel touch of a rub upon my arm while morning the loss of my son’s father to suicide, the hand which smoothed the hair on my head when I in worship in song realized I had strayed, dancing within a beautiful golden rain which turned my skin gold then fell like diamonds all around me. The opportunity to catch many crab with just a child’s sand rake to finding cash money while doing yard work. I want to have a full encounter and look upon His face, right in front of me, to see the love in His eyes for me. I at one time as an abused child did have that Holy Encounter but as it was riddled with painful memories I am only able to remember a glimpse. While praying for the past pains to be removed after I was given the opportunity to face my abusers and forgive them and in one occasion serve him coffee Jesus took me into a wooded area where a little girl was crying, I couldn’t see her face but I knew who she was, as I went forward to comfort her Jesus stilled me with a touch of His hand. He told me I had been protecting her for to long and only He could save her. As He walked to her and picked her up, I realized the face I could now see was me. She smiled at me and snuggled her sweet face into the crook of His neck. I was so overwhelmed in the spirit that I feel onto the forest floor. Within moments I had been broken free of the continued nightmares and fleeting memories that held me bound. I could not have protected the child I was I could not heal that child, I am no longer that child. I pray for a full face to face encounter with the Lord. I want to just say thank you Daddy for the gift.
    Your sister in Christ
    Tamie.

    1. Yes Tamie you may share my testimony. I have found that this is the only way that any of us can be free! Once you begin to tell about those things that you have gone through and are delivered by the power of your testimony the devil has nothing to torment you with! By all means! Set free as many sisters, as well as, brothers who are struggling and wanting to be free!

  12. Maria Dimba says:

  14. Edward Hillary-Edjere says:

    Jamie, thanks for the inspiration. Remain blessed.

  15. Thanks soo much Jamie

  16. I had prayed a many of times back in the day to see the Hlory of God like Moses did. I too, had a vision of a little me. I was abused also. I was told by a very dear friend that the little girl was gone. I couldn’t let it go. I could still feel the hurt, the shame, and the pain. I went and laid before the Lord, like I always did and I had a vision. I was standing across the street in a doorway and to my surprise I saw Yeshua holding this little girl’s and walking in the opposite direction on the other side of the street. I wondered who the little girl was as they walked. As they continued up the street, she turned around with the biggest grin as they continued to walk. That’s when I knew that it was finally over! So yes, I want an encounter with Yeshua!
    Thank you again Jamie for your words of encouragement as you are being led if the Lord!

    1. Tamie Tyra says:

      Your testimony brought tears to my eyes. I felt a hug from the Holy Spirits presence. The knowing that God has given this gift to another is an answer to prayers. I’ve asked Him to do for others what He has done for me. May God bless you abundantly for sharing your testimony. You are the first Sister that He has revealed to me that has had the same encounter.
      May I share your testimony with other women He has given me to share with? For these past years I’ve only had unrelated testimonies to show how He comes. But yours is perfectly aligned with the one He gave me.
      Love your Sister in Christ
      Tamie.
