For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection of reality as in a riddle or enigma, but then we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part, imperfectly, but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood by God. 1 Corinthians 13:12
For instance, can you see faith, hope, love? You can see the consequences of them but you can't actually see them. You can't look into a person's heart and see his or her character. You can't see angels or demons or God Himself or Heaven or Hell. Why? Because they exist in another dimension outside our physical world.
Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting 2 Corinthians 4:18
Wherever that other dimension is, God is trying to tell us that it is reality and it will last forever, while where we are now is not reality but a mere reflection and it will not last forever. Why do I tell you this? To give you Hope. Let's face it, life here is a bit blurry. It is a riddle or an enigma like the Scripture above says. It isn't pretty. It isn't clean. It isn't always happy and good and fun. Sometimes it's downright messy and painful. Most of the time it hurts. And you may be wondering what God is thinking? Does He care? Where is He?
