|Psalms 30:7 |
7 LORD, by your favor you have made my mountain stand strong; but when you hid your face1, I was troubled.
1 When you hid your face, I was troubled. David saw the face of God in his heart. When the Lord withdrew his face from being visible in David's heart, David was troubled. To see God's face is a prerequisite to salvation. When he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. Everyone with this hope purifies himself, just as he is pure. 1 John 3:2-3. Only those who are like him — pure — will see him appear. Call on the name of the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Tim 2:22. Your souls are purified in obeying the truth, through the spirit. 1 Pet 1:22. Your heart is purified by faith. Acts 15:9.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Mat 5:8. Without a pure heart, you are now, and will be, banned from heaven.
He appears to the purified heart of a believer — he is seen. This is his second appearance - this time to the purified in heart.
For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness,"made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 2 Cor 4:6. Christ is revealed in your heart; you see, and have knowledge of, the glory of God.
The morning star rises in your hearts. 2 Pet 1:19.
Jesus is resurrected in us to be our true Lord. 2 Cor 4:14, Col 2:11-12,3:1, Eph 2:6
Paul said Jesus was resurrected in him: I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.
So, seek his face, and keep on seeking until he appears.
