The first thing I said was, "Jesus Christ", and I knew (Knew).

“The first thing I said was, "Jesus Christ", and I knew (Knew)”

By

Doug Wall

What would you do if every day in your garage, you saw Jesus?

I got excited. I got very excited.

My wife was undergoing chemo and radiation for esophageal cancer. This had to be a sign.

I took a picture with my phone. It wasn’t as great picture, and had to be zoomed in to see the black and white portrait in the picture. I show the picture my wife. She saw several things, but not Jesus.

Then I showed the picture to my wife’s and my son. He is Christian in the best way, both in devoutness and by deeds. He did not see Jesus. Others see something, but they are not sure. One sister-in-law said something like, “If you see Jesus and that makes you feel better, then that’s a good thing.” I thought she was going to try to pat me on the head.

That was the first person to make me think, am I going nuts?

It has made me afraid to go further presenting this information, but every day I have to ask, why me?

I don’t know.

So, here is the picture, not modified, but zoomed in, and cropped.

Let me know what you think.

You probably saw Jesus because you needed to see Him. There is nothing wrong with that. I guess I don’t need to see Him in a picture of a wall right now.

It's very nice, but it's no grilled cheese sandwich.

I see the face between the folds of fabric or whatever it is.

A storage area, with a tent like cover (white) that has been folded down. I see this from my car window when I park.

I see what might be a face, but I don’t see the Lord. As someone said, if you see Him, its because you need to see Him. He’s with you, whatever happens. I will pray tonight for your wife’s recovery. God bless.

Having never met Jesus face to face, I don’t know what he looks like. I’ll leave this thread to those that have.

If you are looking for a bearded man, you can see a bearded man.

I can see it but I was also looking at the picture for a human face.

There’s a popular Christian song that has a line “to see the face of Jesus in every person standing by my side.” I know that if I go through my day with an open heart and mind, Jesus will fill it with love. What a wonderful experience you have had. God bless.

Prayers for this man.

My sister’s husband had half his stomach removed from cancer. And recently had brain surgery, but fortunately wasn’t cancer. He’s only 39 and has a 5 y/o daughter.

He is the 2nd most generous man I know after my Father.

If He wanted to appear, he would leave no doubt as to who He is. He would not look like a folded tablecloth.

No one has seen Jesus that is alive today. There are no pictures of Jesus, only imagined likenesses. The only description of Jesus in the Bible is that He is nondescript.

Having said that,...Prayers up for your wife’s recovery and treatment.

Things like this get my attention for whatever reason. Just like angels are babies with wings or women in nightgowns. Any angels we are told about are male men, not babies with wings or women. There are so many misconceptions by Christians not reading the Bible, it's getting critical, IMO. People that die don't become angels, they are saints. You frankly don't want to be an angel. Jesus didn't die for angels, He died for you. The angels long to look into our Salvation, they don't understand it. So may misconceptions about the Holy Spirit and many other subjects. People that say they see Mary in buttered toast or a Popsicle melting on concrete just make Christians look foolish.

I heard some very good advice from a TV preacher one day. He said If you are going to remain a Christian, at some point you will have to read the Bible.

Reading the books of Psalms and Isaiah will give you the most descriptive verses on Jesus in the Bible while Jesus was on the Earth, especially Isaiah 53:2. Of course, Revelation will describe Him as He returns in His glorified body, but nowhere does it say how tall He is, what He looks like, or even His hair color. Jews were to never cut their beards and the Bible says men should not have long hair. Most pics of Jesus show a European with long blonde hair and trimmed beard.

I don’t see Jesus there. But that doesn’t mean that He isn’t there, somehow, beside you as you go through challenging times. God bless you.
