Is it true that I can talk “face to face” with both God and Jesus? Yes, it is true! And I would love to tell you about it, that you may experience it too! It is so simple that a small child can understand it! That is by the way one of the conditions… You can read it in Matthews 11:25.
I believe Jesus’ words just as He said it Himself in Joh.14:23, “Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.” So, if I am living according to the words Jesus has spoken to me from the Bible, verses He has made clear and alive for me – then I know that I fulfil this condition. And then I can expect Him and the Father to make their home with me. Because I believe this, I know I can always talk to them! And I experience that they talk back!! I can ask them advice about everything! About my inner life, my thoughts, how to get rid of, for example, anxiety. I can honestly tell them how I feel about things, and then I get guidance from them! I don’t hear voices, but they let Bible verses pop up in my mind and become alive to me. And about practical things? Yes, I ask them too! And I experience how words or ideas come into my mind, and things become so simple and clear! Things come up that I had never thought about!!
John was not vague about this life, and says in I Joh.1:3-4, “That which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship (conversations) with us; and truly our fellowship (conversation) is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.” John didn’t write, “Sorry! These conversations with the Father and the Son are only for a few very special people!” No, it is for you and me, common people, and John wants you and me to share in this life and joy!
When I hear and see and experience things that are coming from God and Jesus, and get guidance from them for my life, then I am truly filled with joy and thankfulness!
