Do you want to see him right now?
What is stopping you?


No, really. There is a technique Addiction Counselors use, "Oh, you say you're not addicted?
Ok. I want you to stop using alcohol, (or cigarettes, etc) for a month."
Look at their face, lol...then ask..."How did that make you feel...imagining a month without xyz?"

When you thought of seeing Jesus right now...how did that make you feeeeel.

Some are overjoyed...some go, "What?"...some, if honest, don't care...some, if honest, gulp.
there is unworthiness or shame in them....whatever...

What happened to you?
Because if you are a believer you know he is 'still there/here'....accessible...
What is that 'thing' that makes you gulp....if so.
This is for you ...not for us here...unless you want to share.

It's a neat exercise...I practice it all the time. I have known exactly since 1973 my whole M.O.
(After a 5 day fast).

Nope, all you need to break out is a bottle of water!

I always prayed for a visitation so that somebody come down here to tell me what to do, but I always prayed for Judas to be sent, or some great sinner, If Jesus popped up in my office right now, I would be prostrate on the floor, terrified and ashamed.'' Please send Judas Lord.''

Seeing the Lord Jesus through His Spirit was the greatest thing to happen in My life .... But seeing Jesus Christ at the second coming of Jesus would be a horrible time and I would like to hope I don`t see that in my time in the earth .... I believe it will be a horrible time for Jesus Christ as well...........

I thought you were a believer? I'd jump over the roof if I woke up one day looking up and seeing it. Bad news only for the evil-doers and those destroying the Earth.

A believer will have been with Jesus in heaven during the tribulation, a time of celebration......be at rest in Christ and enjoy.....marvelous times are ahead....

Fascinating!

But, I would like to add...Hannie...you will not believe it...he is the easiest, most down to earth, familiar friend you will
ever meet...no shame (for long!)...and no terror...he will melt your heart...and what I know of you...you'll be a like
little girl crying with all the love. Wait til you meet what real love is all about....it's as warm as goin' to grandma's
on your birthday and being taken for your annual pony ride with ice cream and hugs.
