|Psalms 112 |
1 Praise the LORD. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth; the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
4 To the righteous, light arises in the darkness of his heart;1 he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5 A good man shows favor, and lends; he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6 Surely he shall not be moved forever; the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he sees his desire upon his enemies.
9 He has dispersed, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn shall be exalted with honor.
10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away. The desire of the wicked shall perish.

1 To the righteous, light arises in the darkness of his 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 2:12,3:1, 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. 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.
This is the second appearance, the revealing (revelation) of Christ, in the hearts of individual believers;
in those who have prepared the way for him in their hearts for the Lord to enter, be revealed, and rule as Lord.
He, who has been hidden within, is revealed. As Paul said: it has pleased the Father to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him.
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 with 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
The deficit sects teach that you don't have to be pure, you don't have to be perfect, you don't have to be holy.
If, as they incorrectly teach, he came back to the whole world, none of them would see him, because they are not pure.
The world will no longer see me; but you will see me. John 14:19.
Because if one has the hope of purity and seeing their savior, they will purify their hearts, by faith and grace, to see God appear within their hearts.
