Your eyes shall see the King in His beauty!
" Your eyes shall see the King in His beauty! They shall behold the land that is very far off." Isaiah 33:17
Now believers see Him who is fairer than the children of men, through a glass darkly—but hereafter they will see Him face to face! And when they see Him—they will be like Him! "It does not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that when He shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is." May I daily live under the influence of this blessed hope, and realize its purifying influence! For "every man who has this hope in Him purifies himself, even as He is pure."
The heavenly Canaan now often seems like a land afar off; but every "Israelite indeed" shall not only behold it, but enter upon possession of it! How ennobling is the thought of dwelling in that good land, in the presence of the King of kings, and of reigning with Him! How wondrous are the riches of the grace of our God! "He raises up the poor out of the dust, and the beggar from the dunghill—to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory!" He remembers us in our low estate, for His mercy endures forever. He awakens expectations of good too great for us fully to apprehend. But all that He has promised—He will perform.
" Yes, He is altogether lovely. This is my Beloved—and this is my Friend!" Song of Songs 5:16
"Yes, soon shall the veil be removed,
And around shall His brightness be poured;
I shall see Him whom absent I loved,
Whom, not having seen, I adored!"
