or are they ''attention seekers''.


Some people say they have seen Jesus Christ.
How is this
possible if Jesus is a spirit?

ANSWER: Those today who say they have literally seen Jesus Christ are either lying or suffering from mental instability! Peter says in 1 Peter 1:8 that we “see Him not,” and though we “see Him not” we can still love and believe in Him.

As a result, we can then “rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.” Christ says of His followers in John 20:29, “blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”

The apostle John tells us in 1 John 3:2 that we “know” when Christ appears we shall be like Him.
He also says that “it doth not yet appear what we shall be.”

Since the Bible says that we don’t yet know what we shall be like, it follows then that we have not yet seen Christ; nor know what He is like!

If we now knew what He was like, that is, if we had seen Him, then we would already know what we will be like! The fact that “it doth not yet appear what we shall be” is evidence of the fact that none today have seen Him!

The answer to the question is summed up in Paul’s statement of 2 Corinthians 5:7 that Christians (all Christians) “walk by faith and not by sight!”

If one today had really seen Jesus then he or she would be walking by sight and not by faith, thereby negating and contradicting how God said Christians are to walk! Those who claim that God literally appeared to them or that God talked directly to them do so in direct opposition to His Word. If these cannot be shown the error in which they engage, they need to be avoided as false teachers who “serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the heart of the simple”
(Romans 16:17-18).
