 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. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Mat 5:8. And every man who has this hope in him purifies himself, even as He [Jesus] is pure. John 3:3. From the Word of the Lord within: "We stand in His presence; in the kingdom we stand before God and His holy angels; we behold His beauty. We stand in the presence of God speaking forth His words as commanded. A perfect man hears what to do — a time of great joy."]

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.

  1. to be able to see the face of God,
    For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6.
    When You said, “Seek My face,”My heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.” Psa 27:8.
    And I — in righteousness I will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness. Psa 17:15.
    But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Cor 3:18.

  2. to be in his presence continually.
    I do not pray that you should take them out of the world, John 17:15.
    I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you have given me. John 17:24.

    truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. 1 John 1:3.
    And [he] has raised us up together [with Christ], and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Eph 2:6.
    that they may be one, even as we are one. I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one. John 17:22-23.

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.
