|FOR NOW WE SEE IN A MIRROR DIMLY BUT THEN FACE TO
FACE, NOW I KNOW IN PART BUT THEN I SHALL KNOW JUST AS I ALSO AM
KNOWN ................................................... 1 CORINTHIANS
A DIM VIEW NOW BUT
IN HEAVEN OMNI
(when we see Jesus face to face)
To start with I don't see peoples I know on earth today as
in 'a mirror dimly' unless of course I don't have my glasses on.
Hence this verse is by no means referring to knowing or being known by
'earthly loved ones when we get to heaven', if we get to heaven.
Baptist theology likes to think of it this way (it's convenient) but
these are only the
'thoughts' of men and women, not the paraclete.....click.
This verse is actually referring to 'knowledge' even the knowledge of
all things great and small. St. Paul says Yahweh has graciously given all
his bonafide saints who have been proven but 'a part' of his
knowledge as he wills for his specific purpose and the carrying out of his
ultimate Gospel Plan for mankind, after all he/Yah is Omni-Knowledgeable.
Just as St. Paul did not write all of the holy bible nor did any other
singular man save the 'son of man'.....Jesus the Christ.
It's not that God was not able to do it that way it was just that he didn't,
Father knows best. The day comes nearer to us all when 'the holy remnant'
will be granted the ability to comprehend, know all things even as he/Jesus
knows us but his saints will always be and remain created beings. Knowing
all things great and small will not place us in the position as little Jesus
or little God's but saints of omni-degree regarding knowledge for we shall
be living in another/infinitely omniscient world. We will be in a
'Celestial Surround' where earthbound abilities and the most
state-of -the-art equipment are considered mud.....click.
When we get to heaven, if we get to heaven, if Father accepts us, although
we may know our earthbound loved ones and who others are, our thoughts will
not be those of earthlings. This is because of the zone we shall be living
in. It will be celestial, Our God/Yahweh is called jealous he will have no
creature (or family member) before or above him ever and there will be
no sex in heaven, for sex is really primitive, limited, related to flesh, however it
does have a spiritual connection.....ref/when two lay together they
become one, at least until sin breaks that agreement, spiritual
covenant.....Matthew 19:28-30, Luke 21:36.
Father knows what he is doing, just imagine what things would be like if we
knew now as he/God knows us, while we are trapped in this body of flesh, I
say it would be a mad house indeed. Faith, hope and love do abide/live and
long for us to live there but remember what St. Paul said at Yahweh's
instruction, the greatest thing we can do while on earth is to 'truly
love Jesus the Christ' first and foremost......click.
● Holiness is....Honesty, truth and humility
with Mashiah as preeminent!....for without Jesus as preeminent our honesty,
truth and humility is no doubt second rate at best flawed. Without him I can
do nothing and be nothing of any lasting, quality value to him or anyone
