Why Jesus Appears To People
Jesus appearing in Visions
Why does Jesus appear to some people?
Is it important to hear about how Jesus appears to people?
Is it real?
Maybe you thought that Jesus stopped appearing to people after the Bible was written?
Some people were taught by their church that Jesus cannot appear to people anymore.
If you look in the Bible and study the Bible, God has been appearing to people in visions, catching them up into Heaven, appearing in a dream, appearing even in a visible form upon the earth since the book of Genesis and all the way through to the Book of Revelation.
From God coming and walking in the garden to talk to Adam, and from God revealing Himself to Enoch, and just taking him to Heaven without even dying, and appearing to Abraham , and not to mention to Solomon, David, Isaiah, Ezekiel, to catching Paul up to Heaven and appearing in various visions, and of course John who was told to write a book about his experience in heaven, what is known as, the Book of Revelation, and more, we see that this is something that God did not limit to just particular times or places, but that this is part of His way of doing things!
Sometimes Jesus even appears to sinners, as he did to me when I was 16 years old, and he did the same thing to the Apostle Paul when Paul was his enemy!
Then I see that for people that get very serious with Him, it is a way that He lets you know that He recognizes your seriousness you have in the relationship you have together.
FOR HIS PURPOSE AND FOR OTHERS
He also appeared to people like Ananias when He needed him to go pray for Paul after Paul got saved . This was fulfilling the divine purposes of God for someone else , and Ananias was able to get blessed in the meantime to see Jesus!
Well, all in all, Jesus Christ can do whatever he desires to do according to how his father has arranged all things in the universe. Jesus promised in John 14 verse 21 this:
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
The word "manifest" means: to exhibit in person, to appear, to show.
So we see that Jesus makes this promise, that if people take his words and cling to them, that He will take notice of that person and even appear to them to manifest Himself to them, and of course this could happen in many ways..... by words, by revelation, and also by appearing to that person through a vision, are catching them up to heaven or even walking in their house physically!
There are benefits when Jesus Himself can appear to His people
To give them clear direction
Assure people of His will
To release anointings and callings
To release actual power into a person
So, there are many benefits and the best one is that you will know JESUS better when you see Him as He is!
