Has anyone actually ever seen Jesus?

    sandra rinckposted 10 years ago

    Don't be a liar now....if you seen something and equate it to Jesus, it doesn't count.  If you felt something and assumed it was Jesus, it doesn't count. 

    So of all the people who say they have seen Jesus, how many of you have actually seen him?
    But if you hadn't and assumed it was Jesus, then what would lead you to believe it was him?

        I have not, can't wait until the day that I do, but my mother has. My mother was 6 years old. Just playing in her room. (At this point in her life her parents had never brought her to church or not ever told her about Jesus.) Anyway, she was just playing in her room when all a sudden someone came floating towards her window. This person had his arms stretched out, holes in his hands, a robe and no sandals on the feet. When he came all the way to the window he was only exposed from the shoulders down. He never showed her his face. She just stared at him for an moment in awe. She said she felt nothing but pure love coming from this person. After he left, she ran to her mother(keep in mind who was not a christian and never told her about Jesus) that Jesus just had visited her. My mom said automatically she knew who he was, it was just given to her in her thoughts, without him even saying a word. My grandmother was of course shocked. Later, because of this she ended up coming to Christ.

      Yes, I have had a few experiences that are biblical. I read the book of Esther, and fell asleep to a song called El Shaddai and had an experience where I saw a bright white cross shining throughout my whole body. It was the most amount of love and joy I have ever felt and in that He showed me that He loves and shines through His people and nothing can separate us from his love. I also went under really bad spiritual attack and saw a bunch of faces of the devil. I cried out to God, and a man started walking toward me in a field, His robes were so white I couldn't see His face. He started saying psalm 23 and I started saying it as if I knew it by heart when I didn't, and it felt like it was physically flowing from my heart. Another night I got attacked and a spirit was trying to touch me while I was asleep, but then I saw a hand that was pierced, I was surprised bc the blood was still fresh, like it wasn't healed. The hand was holding a shepherds staff. I didn't get attacked after I saw that.  Another experience with a homeless man that showed up on my street when I wanted to give to someone but didn't have a car. It was a high end neighborhood, and a random homeless man decided to walk down my street. It wasn't normal for the area.  the man didn't look like Jesus, didn't have a beard, but he had a really kind face and a really gentle demeaner. I got nervous and ended up thanking the man after I gave him what I had for him. He wasn't wearing any shoes, just holy socks. I've never seen a homeless man like him. People can laugh and make fun if they want, but it's real and they can't take that away from anyone. It is impossible to disprove the existence of God, and many people who try are very sad, and bitter and many are crying out for God to reveal himself because He seemed to be so silent their whole lives, but He never leaves us. He is with us through all the pain, and He heals us and sets us free. I don't know if anyone will see this post, because this thread is 8 years old, but I hope it helps someone.

        after I saw the man with robes so white and bright I couldn't see his face, I met a girl at a church who told me she saw the same exact figure, who told her that her uncle would be healed from cancer, and he was. Then I met a minister at an unrelated church and he told the congregation he saw God and described him the same way and couldn't see his face. I tried to squirt to see it, when I saw him, but it was too bright. There is also a book called Heaven Is So Real and the author describes the same figure. So it supports what I saw. It wasn't a hallucination, other people have seen the same thing. There was also a boy on YouTube who claims to have seen the wounds of Jesus and says his wounds were open like how I saw them.

        Paul claims an encounter on the road to Damascus.  Plus, no one really knows (for sure) if the apostles whom the gospels are credited to personally shared these in order for them to be written.

        Either way. None of that is important to the faithful. Have I seen Jesus? Certainly. He looks like you and me. And every human being who walks the earth. We should see him in all others and treat each human being as he would have treated them. Notice how many times he was seen and not immediately recognized after the resurrection.

        I don't think anyone quite understands how stagnant the faith would be if there were certainties. If we had proof positive and looked to one person in particular for guidance. Think Islam.

      Your comment stirred a memory.

      I was going through a tough time in my life and was walking into the post office--this was quite a few years back. A bum was out in the parking lot, just sitting on the curb. We made eye contact and did not speak and there was such an intensity in his eyes it took my breath away. The first thought that came to my mind was that I was looking into the eyes of Jesus.

      I know it sounds goofy now but it had a huge impact on me at the time--really rattled me.

      I'm not exactly a rabid Christian either, so its not like I go around looking for these kinds of experiences.

        The love that Jesus projects is the love that God has for us all (whetherYOU believe in him or not) Jesus, asks us to remember those less fortunate than ourselves.

        So to see a plea, for the love of Jesus, in the eyes of someone less fortunate, and have a strong feeling; of being drawn, to that plea in you heart, is really not so strange. The feeling is fed when you give. 

        There is also the fact that there but for the grace of God go I.

        And this is the is the most truthful answer to the question posted so far. For just like we see God in the things he created to sustain life.  We all see Jesus Christ's reflections of his Father/God, in the loving kindeness that we recieve form others, and pass-on to others, in our dalily living.

        It's a spiritual thing, experienced in a spiritual dimension, of understanding, no rockets necessary to achieve flight.  Just believe.

    I have  seen him in the  crying of a new  baby at
    the hospital near where an old man dies
    or along the edge of a river  in the maple trees
    where all colors of the rainbow lies

    Have I  seen him with  my eye's  or with the eyes

    Or will you see him in the sounds of the forest

            OK. I will say I find it odd that Muslims call Jesus a prophet. Completely ignoring the fact that a prophet cannot lie. If Jesus did die at 120 years old somewhere far away then he lied. Which would mean he wasn't a prophet. Which would mean the Koran lies.

            I'm always interested in the hoops people of faith are willing to jump through in order to prove their points while those hoops completely negate the value of the points one hopes to make.

                  Please search in the Catholic Encyclopedia , one will get to know that the gospels were anonymous writings and were named after the disciples just for credibility:
                  http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/06655b.htm

                  Nevertheless, the Gospels were never written, dicated or approved by Jesus.

                    The Catholic Encyclopedia? Well, if I were Catholic that might mean something. Biblical scholars are not all Catholic nor is there a consensus of them who agree with your statements. I understand why you would believe such. It supports your belief. That's OK. I simply don't agree with any of that.

                    As to Jesus not dictating anything. That is the beauty of Jesus and his teachings. Not like a religion such as Islam. No one is allowed independent thought. Only Mohammed's words dictate all action. No chance to evolve and grow. Stagnation is not in line with any aspect of the known universe and would therefor
                    not be in line with any aspect of God.

      Yes, I believe so. I had experienced seven years of paranormal activity and someone carried out intercessory prayer on my behalf. I received a healing but then got ill again shortly afterwards. I went home to meditate/pray myself and something bizarre happened - a golden cross kept appearing in my mind's eye. At first I thought it was my imagination and kept trying to clear my mind and start over again but every time I did it became more pronounced like it was forcing itself on me. In the end, I just relaxed and let it happen. Then everything came into view - the typical golden cross with a man stood up against it with arms outstretched and I thought to myself "is that.... is that.... JESUS!!!???" It became pretty clear to me that it was. I received a healing and a cleansing from him and was miraculously cured and no he doesn't look anything like in the typical images.
