God is not HIDING
God does not hide, neither is He far away that people cannot see Him. It is because of sin that the world cannot see God, because sin separates man from God. Those who are pure in heart will see God.
The apostle Paul wrote in Romans 1:18 "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, HIS ETERNAL POWER AND DIVINE NATURE, HAVE BEEN CLEARLY SEEN, BEING UNDERSTOOD THROUGH WHAT HAS BEEN MADE, SO THAT THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE. 21For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
24Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. (HOMOSEXUALITY)
28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them."
That is what has become of the world today. That is what happened to churches today who are TOLERANT to sin and unrighteousness, who are worldly, who have turned their back on God. They have a form of godliness but they have denied the power thereof. They deny God.
God is HOLY and He is PURE, and if we cleanse our hearts of all unrighteousness and if we are pure in heart we will SEE God, we will experience Him, we will KNOW Him but the world does not know God because of SIN. God is not hiding Himself. Our sins and our iniquities have come between us and God and that is why we do not see God neither do we see His hand.
If you want to see God, get rid of your sin. Repent, turn away from sin, ask Jesus Christ for forgiveness, be baptized in water for the washing off of your sin and SIN NO MORE. Be HOLY, be RIGHTEOUS and you will EXPERIENCE God. Ask Jesus to give you His Holy Spirit to dwell in you because He only dwells in clean and holy temples, and you will walk with God, you will KNOW Him, you will SEE Him and He will not be hidden from you.
May Jesus bless you.
