|1 Chronicles 16:11 |
11 Seek the Lord and His strength; yearn for and seek His face, to be in His presence continually!1[Turn inward to seek God for what may be known of God is revealed in them, Rom 1:19; God and Christ are only known by revelation. Mat 11:27. The kingdom of God is within you and around you. Luke 17:21. Faith comes by hearing the word which is in your heart and mouth to obey, that is the word of faith we preach. Rom 10:8,17]
1 Seek the Lord and His strength; yearn for and seek His face, to be in His presence continually! This is a very strong command with two wonderful, but forgotten, promises: 1) to be able to see the face of God, and 2) to be in his presence continually.
Babylon does not want anyone to know of these promises, much less attain them. And so, those saints who have secured these promises were destroyed by the false church of Babylon:
And upon her forehead was a name written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus; and when I saw her, I wondered with great amazement. Rev 17:5-6.
