OUR LORD DWELLS IN UNAPROACHABLE LIGHT
1 Timothy 6 verse 15 - 16 says, "He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.
Our Lord is the one and only sovereign God. He is the Most High and eternal God. He has absolute control over who can draw near to Him and when. His place of dwelling is beyond a veil of light that no human or spirit or any other creature can even approach.
That the Lord is even knowable is strictly a function of His allowance of a sliver of perception. Unless our God permitted it, there is no possible way we would have been able to gain knowledge of the God who made us.
In Jesus, we have an exact representation of the Father whom we can see and experience. Some people witnessed Jesus directly when He walked the land of Israel and their testimony informs the rest of us of their experience with God.
God is absolutely unapproachable but through His dear Son Jesus and His sacrifice of His life on the cross for us, we have access to the Father who is the Father of all spirits and who loves us.
