What is it that you see right now? Do not focus on what you look at, focus on what you SEE.
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
- Henry David Thoreau
What you see right now is light and it is in the form of an image, that image reveals the world around you. The image you see is the light of the
world, it is what illuminates the world around you. Without the image you see, there would only be darkness, you would be blind.
23 But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
What does the bible refer to Jesus as?
12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have
the light of life."
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
Jesus is the light of the world and the image of God. Mankind is made in God's image and in his likeness.
What if what the bible refers to as Jesus is actually the image that you see right now? What if Jesus calling himself the light of the world is him
describing what you are?
14 "You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Yes, when Jesus speaks of himself, he is also speaking of YOU. YOU are the light of the world just as Jesus was.
3 The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had
provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
If the Son is the exact representation or "likeness" of God's being, and if he is the image and radiance of God, and if we are made in the image and
likeness of God, wouldn't that mean that WE are God's image? The image we see IS the radiance and exact likeness and representation of God's being.
9 Jesus answered: "Don't you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.
How can you say, 'Show us the Father'?
Those who have seen Jesus have seen his Father; those who have seen the image have seen the Father; those who have seen the light of the world have
seen the Father.
You see the image right now as you read this, you see the light of the world as you read this. You see the Father right now, and the image of light
you see is the exact likeness of the Father. The perfection of the physical world is a representation of the perfection of the Father who is within
9 The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me.
What you are looking at right now is you seeing the one who sent Jesus. You see the image of God right now, it is pure light and it lights the
19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
What above anything else affirms that you live? The image of light that constitutes your vision. It is your identity, it is who you truly are. Because
you see the image, because Jesus (the image) lives, you also live. The image is the proof that you live.
The image you see is the radiance of God, it is his exact representation, just as the bible states.
2 Corinthians 4
4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is
the image of God.
Why do people not see the light of God? Because the god of this age, the Abrahamic god, has blinded them to it, they do not recognize the true light
that is the image of God, they fail to recognize the glory of Christ, which is his image. They believe in a false image, that of a man.
15 "So watch yourselves carefully, since you did not see any form on the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire, 16 so do
not corrupt yourselves by making an idol in any form-- whether of a man or a woman,
Those in power have made an idol in the form of Jesus, a man. This is idolatry and the worship of a graven image. The true image is right in front of
you, and it is TRUE life.
YOU are the image of God, YOU are the light of the world, YOU are the Son of God, and YOU are the exact likeness of God.
Stop being blinded by idols, stop being blinded by Jesus' sacrifice. Jesus' sacrifice is what blinds you to the true glory of God, which is the image
of light you see right now.
YOU are the image of God, and that image is eternal life.
