Does Jesus look the same to everyone?
really interested in your vision of Jesus. (click here
to read about Tom Brown's vision of Jesus) My daughter, Carissa, and I were in a
serious car wreak in 1987. She was five at the time and was hurt more than I
was, and was in intensive care. She had no life signs until she arrived at the
hospital. Her blood count was very low, and so she was suppose to stay in the
hospital for a long time. I called my husband to bring some clothing for my
daughter, but Carissa told me, "Mom, I won't need the clothes because Jesus
stood next to me and said that I was going home today."
I asked her how Jesus spoke to her and she said not with his
lips. She pointed to her heart. She also said that Jesus does not look like the
Jesus on television. She said that He had short hair like her daddy. He was
almost as tall as the ceiling. Anyway her blood count rose and she was quickly
dismissed from the hospital.
I'm wondering if the Lord shows Himself differently to
different people, because I know she saw Him.
Bible Answer: It's wonderful to see your
daughter healed after a vision of Christ. There is little girl in our church who
was healed in the same way, except through a dream of seeing Jesus.
Jesus definitely has a unique appearance, just as we all do.
He was incarnate and actually had a real appearance. As far as Jesus taking on
different appearances than the one that he actually has, Mark 16 tells us that
Jesus took on a different form: "Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of
them while they were walking in the country" (Mark 16:12).
In another passage we find that the disciples on the road to
Emmaus did not recognize Jesus. "As they talked and discussed these things with each
other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but
they were kept from recognizing him" (Luke 24:15-16).
Also, John, on the island of Patmos saw Jesus is a very
different form. He had white hair as wool. His legs were as bronze. So it is
quite possible that Jesus appears differently to various people.
One last thing, the vision your daughter had could have been
of an angel. Ask her if the man had a beard. We know for sure Jesus had a beard.
Isaiah prophesied about Christ's beatings and said, "I offered my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard; I did not hide my face from mocking and
spitting" (Isa 50:6).
