Are You Satisfied with Jesus?
I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me. If you had known me, you should have known my Father also: and from henceforth you know him, and have seen him. Philip said unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it will satisfy us.
If I went to your house and got out of my car, I would expect you to talk to me, not my car. My car is just my vehicle; it’s how I get around. The disciples knew Jesus’ vehicle. They knew His body. They knew Him in the natural, but they didn’t know Him by the spirit. If they would have known who Jesus was on the inside, the spiritual Him, they would have recognised that this was the Lord God Almighty. The reason they weren’t satisfied wasn’t because there was anything wrong with Jesus; it was because of how they perceived Him. They were carnal and only went by what they could see, taste, hear, smell, and feel.
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
Back in the Old Testament, Moses wanted to see the Lord, but the Lord said, “…no man can see me, and live” (Ex. 33:20). It’s not because God would kill you if you saw Him. It’s because you couldn’t stand it. You couldn’t contain it. God’s glory is so awesome that our physical bodies would explode if we saw Him.
