The vision of The Behold File is to provide a platform through which the Holy Spirit opens the eyes of men to see Jesus as he is; through his Word and through worship, so they can be changed to be like him.
We understand from scripture that as we behold the Lord, we are changed to be like him.
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. – 2 Corinthians 3:18
The scripture above explains that as we continuously behold the glory of the Lord, we are changed into the same image in a progressive manner that is from glory to glory. We also come to understand that this change is produced by the work of the “Spirit of the Lord” who is the Holy Spirit.
The question therefore is this “How do we behold the glory of the Lord so we can be changed to be like him?”
How are we changed to be more like Jesus Christ?
We see an explanation of how this happens in the scripture below:
But be ye doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a mirror; for he beholdeth himself, and then goeth his way and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. – James 1:22-25
We come to understand that looking into, hearing and practicing the Word of God is the same as beholding or looking into the Word. It also explains that whoever does this consistently will be blessed and changed to become more like our Lord Jesus Christ.
Psalm 106:19-20 also explains how we can behold the glory of the Lord through worship. The scripture says:
They made a calf in Horeb, and worshiped the molten image. Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass. – Psalm 106:19-20
This scripture refers to the time when the children of Israel made and worshiped a molten image after they had crossed the Red sea and how as a result of their worship, their glory was changed into that of the molten image. We come to see in essence that we are changed into what we worship. If we worship God, we will be changed to become more like him. This scripture is corroborated by 2 Corinthians 3:18 above.
We can conclude therefore that when we continuously behold the glory of the Lord in worship and through his Word by the help of the Holy Spirit, we are changed to be like him in a step by step, progressive manner.
The vision of The Behold File therefore is to provide a platform through which the Holy Spirit can reveal Jesus Christ through his Word and through worship so we can become more like him.
