John the Baptist sought to help Israel recognize its Messiah. They could see Him, but many did not recognize Him.
The same is true today. Among you stands one whom many of you do not recognize. Yes, there are many of you – including the Christian leaders among you – who do not recognize that Jesus Christ is fully present in the earth today. He has taken His stand on the earth as God Almighty and He will be standing this way for all eternity. The heavens are His throne and the earth is His footstool.
If you are looking for Him in the flesh, you are missing Him. Indeed, we once knew Him in the flesh, but we know Him thus no longer ( 2 Corinthians 5:16).
If the Lord Jesus Christ is fully present and filling the heavens and the earth, why do we act one way at church and another way elsewhere? And why do you so reverently acknowledge the Lord’s presence in your church services but in few other places?
Let us put away our idols and know Him who stands among us.
