Seeing God


I am not sure how you would title my beliefs. I know that God is real. I believe Jesus came & died for our sins, but I don't believe in praying to Jesus. I believe the old Testament and that we should only pray to God.

I believe I saw God the other night. I was somewhere between awake and asleep. I saw a man in a white robe, older man with white long hair. He knelt towards me and with a kind smile extended his hand. I was both afraid & happy.

I have been calling out to God, asking for help. I am about to lose my house. I tried to kill myself because of it last April. I'm too that point again. I've been calling out to him but this is the 1st time I saw him. I believe I've heard him talk to me before. I just want out of this mess I created. I believe he doesn't want me to do it, but if it means my husband can keep his house I will. I have been dealing with depression for years now. I just want to be happy & keep my house. I know I am just one of many with the same problem, I just want help, I don't know what seeing him and having him extend his hand means but I hope it means help. I hope maybe I am not alone in seeing him and that he will help all the peoples in this situation. I don't want to hurt myself, but I keep hurting others by making a mess of my life.

Terri don't despair. God hears you. I haven't read the others comments and my kids just woke up but I'm sure they are saying the same thing:

GOD LOVES YOU and cares for you. I don"t know what is going on in your life, but I only had one point that I thought I'd kill myself. That night God showed me something that I'm still trying to understand but the message is that we have a purpose in this life and we are the light for the world and the darkness always seeks to destroy the light. Do not let the darkness win. Please email or IM me, do not despair for we care for you and God will keep you safe in His loving arms. At your worst moments is when you are most in need of prayer and if you have the spiritual eyes to see you will see the angels that guard you and would comfort you if you can find the ears to hear their words.

May the Peace of The Lord be with you,

Stvnkid, in the Revelations a man on a throne is mentioned who has snow-white hair though He is young. This image is interpreted as Jesus the Alpha and Omega, ever-young but older than the World. Thus, Christians do not have to limit their visions of the Lord to images of Jesus as we depict Him to-day. There also is, in the Revelations, a woman clothed in Sun, the Moon below Her feet, and twelve stars like a diadem round Her head. Thus if to a Christian the Virgin Mary appears, or "a Lady of divine light radiance" however She may be clothed, the vision is OK and scripture-based too.

The bible speaks about no man hath seen God because God is a Spirit. The way we know what God's flesh looks like is through 1 Timothy 3:16. It says God was manifested in to the flesh (Jesus' body). So...I'm not sure who you saw. But you have faith like a child, which is great!

God bless:)

Killing yourself may seem the easy way out, but it is not. Your hurt may linger on in your spirit for a little while longer after you pass, even though your body is no longer. God forgives all sins, but sometimes people don't forgive themselves.

We take our flaws too seriously. We should forgive ourselves like we would forgive our loved ones. Just try not to make the same silly mistake again. Try is all we human can. Scientists are now tell us that a lot of decisions we thought we consciously made are actually not. They were made as a momentum of our upbringing, our experiences, all the TV commercials being bombarded on us and so on.

After forgiving yourself like God would have forgiven you, then understand that you are dearly loved by God. It is a blessing that you saw God. Ask for God's help, and the help may come in the most marvelous ways. It may not come exactly in you keeping your house, but better.

If you have read some of the spiritual experiences on this site, you will realize that the most wonderful and life changing experiences that people have are after a dark period of struggle, like what you are experiencing now. So please see that when you are seeing the darkest in the tunnel, the brightest is not far ahead. Pray to God for strength to handle your situation, and then go do it. Do it with the knowledge that God is by your side. This may include getting some medical help for your depression. This may include how to handle losing your house with grace and love for everybody around you, including yourself. The best of your life is yet to come, if you allow it.

I will pray for you, if you allow it.

!...don't harm yourself... Think of the people who loves you. And its not a solution to your problems. God gave you the best gift-your life... Life is wonderful at the same time many challenges, but I know you can make it. Talk to someone who can listen to your problems. We can be your friends. Enjoy life even full of trials. God loves you! Take care and just be happy... Say "hihihi,god is with me"

2 very good posts from Scooby and NaturalScience. The Heavenly Father has always been there, is there with you right now, knows your pain, anguish and has been showing you the road ahead.

I am an ardent believer in we must learn to see or hear the answers to our prayers, but that is only the half of the issue. God could simply wave his hand and all would be perfect, for a moment, but the reasons for our problems wouldn't be removed. I believe we must look within ourselves and work with the Divine.

When we change our way of thinking about God and life, look inside and seek his glory within you. I have experienced this first-hand, couldn't see my way to the future, no hope in sight. When I was at my end I decided there is another path. I opened my heart and soul to God and Jesus, changed my outlook from "...why are things happening to me..." to "...this is who I am and Father I love you, please stand by my side as I move forward into the light of a new world..."

A bit dramatic, sorry, but that is how I changed my life, found God and awakened to the Divine and his Son. Since then my life has changed, money no longer occupies my 24-7 thoughts, only love of life and my fellow man.

When I made this leap everything changed, financially, family, everything. There is peace and love in our home that has not been present for a long time.

Terri, this is merely an example and not a definitive answer, but it shows that we are in control of many things in our life. When I changed from saying "...not enough of..." to "...I have more than I need..." things changed. There still wasn't any money in the bank at the end of the month, initially, but that didn't seem to mater any more. Life with family, love and God became important, we still do not hesitate to share with others, even when there is but a pittance of change in our pockets.

God is there Terri, look inside yourself and open yourself to the Father, the Divine is there...

May the Source of All Life, All Love be your guiding light and continue to bless you, for you are God's child, never forget that.

He opened His arms toward you.
"This is My beloved son, whom I am pleased with."
That's what He tells you.
Act in your life as one who now knows that instead of only having to believe it and your house has best chances to be saved. Nothing is impossible.

Please don't harm yourself. Taking your own life will hurt so many others and it will not fix anything. God loves you and I believe He is trying to tell you that He is here to help you. I am no expert, so all I can tell you is what I know from past experience. Pray for guidance and direction in your life. Pray for peace in your life. Then just take one day at a time. Sometimes you may think that He isn't listening, that He doesn't care when actually He is right with you. Things in your life happen for a reason. I always have to pray for clear direction because, I feel I am as dumb as a box of hammers sometimes and I 2nd guess myself like crazy. So, God knows He has to pretty much send a marching band to get my attention and when I know I am doing what I am supposed to do, I feel very strong and peaceful. Wrap your worries up and give them over to Him to handle. Let Him know you trust Him and whatever happens, happens. He will help you through this dark spot in your life. Trust Him, it gets better when you hand Him the reigns and say, "please take over, I cannot go any further." He'll do it gladly. I believe in the power of prayer. I believe that when God closes one door, another one opens. He will show you the way, just be patient and listen.
I will pray for peace in your life.
