The Disciple Whom JESUS Loved

Published by at 12:24 am under Spiritual

One evening while in deep prayer, I asked the LORD if He would bring John the Beloved to me so that I might inquire of him the reason for his particular closeness to JESUS. When he approached me in the Spirit, I posed my question thus: “John, dearest John, what was the secret behind your profound intimacy with our LORD?”John replied quite simply, “JESUS always dazzled me.” Dazzled me! I simply could not believe John’s choice of words. This was the beloved apostle speaking. Apparently he had been given a special grace to see the Divine LIGHT of GOD resident in JESUS, and the LIGHT DAZZLED him, perhaps almost intoxicating him with reverential love. He was overwhelmed by the Presence of JESUS Who responded to that deep love in John. To the beloved Apostle He entrusted His own Mother.

Does JESUS dazzle me?

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.”  Hebrews 12:1
