Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Great Sermon! 2Co:5:16: Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
WHEN YOU KNOW CHRIST AFTER THE FLESH AS HE WAS 2000 YEARS AGO YOU CAN NEVER SEE HIM AS HE IS.
CHRIST IS NOT SOMEONE APART FROM US or away from us. The veil must be removed from where the Christ is concealed from us -- HE IS WITHIN OURSELVES, AS WE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST, the fullness of Him that filleth all in all. The Lord is not hidden in some far-off heaven somewhere, He has already come within us, for Christ is in us, except we be reprobates ‚ÄĒ counterfeits (II Cor. 13:5).
