Itseems crazy I know but as I was thinking the other day; what if someone toldyou that they had seen something that was invisible and heard something thatwas not audible? The first impression would be there is no way, and logically thatwould be right. There again we don’t see electricity but it’s there! If a treefalls in the forest and no one is around it will still make a sound but we willnot hear it. Men and women have given their lives for what was invisible andnot audible yet they saw it and heard it. I know up to this point I have notmade much sense. Let me explain;
Hebrews11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidenceof things not seen. Here we see evidence of something that’s notseen
Hebrews 11:3Through faith we understand that the worlds were framedby the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things whichdo appear. Here it is seeing something that is seen but made of thingswhich does not appear
Hebrews11:27 By faith he forsookEgypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who isinvisible. Here seeing him who is invisible
Polycarp wasa second century Bishop of Smyma;he died a martyr when he wasstabbed after an attempt to burn him at the stake failed. Polycarp was asked to deny Christ and they would set him free. Listento what he told them; “Eighty and six years have I served him, and henever once wronged me; how then shall I blaspheme my King, Who hath savedme?” At the stake to which he was only tied, for he assured them he should standimmovable, the flames, on their kindling the fagots, encircled his body, likean arch, without touching him; and the executioner, on seeing this, was orderedto pierce him with a sword, when so great a quantity of blood flowed out asextinguished the fire. Polycarp saw someone who was invisible to all thosearound him but to him He was clearly seen. I guess it’s true men and women arewilling to suffer for what is invisible and not audible. Let me ask you, haveyou heard Him or seen Him today.
Matthew25:35 For I was an hungred,and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, andye took me in:
Matthew25:36 Naked, and ye clothedme: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Matthew25:37 Then shall therighteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee?or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
Matthew25:38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? ornaked, and clothed thee?
Matthew25:39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
Matthew25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I sayunto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these mybrethren, ye have done it unto me. Willyou see Jesus today? You will if you look in the right place. Will you see Himthis weekend? It will depend on how you look at others! Have a great weekend.
