I suddenly felt God’s heart and I have been in tears as He has been showing me how He feels about the fact that people can’t see past the way a person looks, to receive the Jesus whom they have to offer.
It is breaking my heart that many never get to experience the true beauty in a person.
I am sorry if you missed that in Jan Crouch (1938-2016), because you could never get past the hair and the eyelashes.
I personally received of her ministry from the time I was born again until now. And as they were having her memorial tonight, I realized how much she had done and what a beautiful soul she was. realized how much she impacted my life and many others.
But the reason I am sobbing now, is because we miss the Glory in each and every individual when we judge by the flesh. I feel God’s heart breaking over this and also breaking because He has so much to offer the world if they would accept Him in one another, but many times He offers Himself through a package that we deem strange or weird or funny looking, to see how we will receive all that He is!! If we are ever to experience the fullness of Christ we will have to accept one another as the many-faceted Grace of God,
Him shining through each one differently and with different colors and different gifts! None the same as the other but together becoming that one man in Christ.
So I am sorry if you missed the beauty in some, because you could not get past the container that they came in.
I heard Him weeping and saying, “It is time to begin to judge no man by the flesh, but to see all they are in Christ.
I have much to give them if they will accept the God who lives in one another!”
He is truly beautiful in His people.
“And the Lord their God will save them on that day as the flock of His people, for they shall be as the [precious] jewels of a crown, lifted high over and shining glitteringly upon His land,” Zechariah 9:16-17 (AMPC).
