Around the Word in 365 Days, by Linda Sommer

Looking at the Unseen

Hebrews 11:17-31 As we continue our travels through the Book of Hebrews, underline or circle the phrases looking at or looking towards. Faith always looks at the eternal rather than the temporal. We can see the temporal, but we cannot usually see the eternal. In this chapter we see more stories from the Hall of Faith, and each story has one thing in common. These heroes of our faith were able to see the unseen by faith. We see the faith of Moses in the following passages: "By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible" (vv. 24-27, KJV).

Moses saw Christ with his spiritual eyes. He even saw the rewards Christ would give him on that great day when Jesus will reward the saints for their deeds and words on earth. Moses, like David, Job and Isaiah, saw Jesus Christ in the Spirit even though it was years before Jesus would be born on earth. These heroes of our faith were able to look into the unseen realm of the Spirit.

When Moses asked God to show him His glory, I believe Moses at that time saw much more than God the Father. I believe he saw the Trinity. He could only see the backside of God, who does have form even though He is a Spirit. He also saw Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The Spirit was represented by the fire in the burning bush, as the Spirit is often represented by fire. The golden candlestick in the tabernacle of Moses represented the sevenfold Spirit of God. I believe Moses also saw Jesus. God honored Moses' faith by allowing him to see Jesus not only in the Spirit but also in the flesh. This happened on the Mount of Transfiguration when Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus on the Mount.

If we want our lives to display the same kind of faith Moses and these other Bible heroes displayed, we must wear our spiritual glasses every day. These glasses correct our nearsightedness and allow us to see into the realms of God's glory.

Are you wearing your spiritual glasses today, or are you still blinded by the problem and trials of this world? Put on your glory glasses this morning and see into the unseen by faith. You will never be the same.

Lord, show me Your glory.
