I believe that we live blinded to the real world of the spirit. It’s almost like the movie, The Matrix, where we live in a false reality, disbelieving the actual world we don’t see. The Bible describes so many things that we assume are metaphorical, when I think it is describing reality.
For instance, I love this verse in Isaiah 61:10
For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
I think we are literally covered with salvation and righteousness in the spirit, and it is more beautiful than we know. God gave some serious thought to how to describe this. What is the one day that you will adorn yourself more carefully than any other day of your life?
If a girl is given the opportunity and means, she’s going to plan her wedding. She picks her earrings and shoes, and that dress is going to be amazing.
Well, think of that, times a million. That’s how God covers us with His salvation and righteousness. I can’t begin to imagine what it really looks like, but, I want to see it in the spirit.
