Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins, the gospel of our salvation, and repenting, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -

1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass darkly: but then face to face: now I know in part, but then shall I know even also as I am known.
darkly - the lack of clarity in old mirrors also reflecting the fact that what we see is in fact, backward, not reality.

Grosheide(#5), remarks in his commentary: "Our seeing in this dispensation is in a mirror darkly. The mirror in antiquity gave a very poor image (2 Corinthians 3:18). Seeing something through a mirror only was not seeing the reality. It was like considering a riddle, which makes one wonder what one really sees. Our vision is hampered by a twofold darkness and hence it is in part. We are unable to determine what in our vision is precisely lacking, for if we could we would have freed ourselves of the imperfection of the mirror. The only thing that can be said is that our Lord reveals in a figure which is formally perspicuous that we, when we see now, have not reached perfection. Our present vision is not untrue, but it is imperfect as to its degree. When perfection has been reached, we shall see face to face, ie, we shall with our eyes of our understanding look straight into the face of things reality ; there will be nothing between us and the things like GOD's face.

Consider: there were not spaces between words or ends of paragraphs in the the original texts so a sentence like: isawabundanceuponthetable when read by the cult of the dancing buns finds corroboration for their view in i saw a bun dance upon the table when in fact the words were written to mean i saw abundance upon the table.

This is the cause of many to be led astray who depend upon direct quotes to support a position, that is, it presupposes that there is only one pov and that pov is the speakers, who may be a dancing bun member.

With every post of a misunderstood, wrongly interpreted so called direct quote we see proof of the uselessness of not following the Holy Spirit. The quote is true, the interpretation can be as off the wall backwards as thru a particularly bad reflection in a mirror! Instead:
   Proverbs 3:5 
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

As time goes on,the Bible is revealed to us. An example is: those who fought in the civil war could not fathom the whole world being destroyed to the point that Jesus had to stop it before "all Flesh was destroyed", Yet, beginning in 1945, we see the beginning of this prophecy being fulfilled.

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
