Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father ‘? John 14:9
Philip says to Jesus “Show us the Father” meaning “Show us God”! Jesus is amazed , Philip has been with him for over 3 years and he still doesn’t get it. Even after all the miracles Jesus performed, and all the references he made to past revelations of God such as , Great I AM, Living Water, Bread of Life, these guys still are not getting it!
Even today , many Christians are still not getting it. Even after all the Revelation we have about Jesus, after all the prophecies Jesus fulfilled, after all the power Jesus has displayed, many just don’t understand his deity.
If you want to see God, Look at Jesus! If you want to know the will of God, Look at Jesus!
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. Colossians 1:15
Paul also describes Jesus as the image of the Invisible God! But what does Paul mean by “Firstborn of all Creation”? Is Paul saying Jesus was created by God? No, Paul is referring to the Resurrection of Christ! Because Jesus has defeated death and was resurrected on the 3rd day, he is the first fruits, the first born of all Creation!
Because of Christ we can live eternally with God, because of Christ we can now see God and have a relationship with Him Amen!
