So much talk about interpreting Scriptures and is JESUS present when we pray or participate in the Sacraments, and is Heaven a Future Place or is it a Present Reality? BELIEF is our mental acceptance and conviction in the Truth, Actuality and Validity which gives us Confidence and Trust. FAITH exists in the mind only when the HOLY SPIRIT places it upon our hearts. People can argue or "discuss" THINGS OF GOD to the point it confuses and frustrates. They cannot confuse the THINGS OF GOD and GOD HIMSELF that we have experienced, tasted and touched. To the UNFAITHFUL the Scriptures are still confusing, Communion is still argumentative and Heaven is.....well Heaven is just STILL. To the FAITHFUL, the Scriptures tell us how to have HEAVEN NOW AND IN THE FUTURE; Communion is giving ourselves to GOD, and taking GOD for ourselves. 1 Corinthians 1:9, "GOD is Faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of HIS SON..." Just as JESUS was present at the same place, the unfaithful never knew HIM, the FAITHFUL EXPERIENCED HIM FULLY. So is JESUS present or not? HE IS!
