Sir, we would see Jesus. (John 12:21b KJV)
How do you see Him? A babe in the manger? The twelve-year-old in the Temple? Being baptized by John? Teacher on a mount? Healer of the blind, deaf, lame? The accused? Convicted? Nailed to a cross?
Only in memories. We can learn about Him, but when He’s seen again, it will be as King.
Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; (1 Timothy 6:15 KJV)
These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. (Revelation 17:14 KJV)
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. …And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
(Revelation 19:11, 16 KJV)
When I hear that I can’t help but hear strains of Handel’s Messiah in the background.
Yes, sir, I would see Jesus.
