In the Scriptures, Goliath, a giant, was David's nemesis and the nemesis of the Israelites. He teased and taunted them mercilessly and everyone, even the most adept warriors among them, was cowardly in the presence of Goliath. They saw him as bigger than he was because he caused them to look at his physical body instead of his spiritual body. When one looks at the physical body, one sees what is subject to corruption, influence, and caricature. However, the spiritual body reveals only truth.
If they had looked at Goliath's body in the spirit realm, they would have seen a creature that was three feet tall, a sharp contrast to the ten feet tall giant who stood before them. There is not enough space in this Blog to describe how a creature three feet tall in the spirit realm could morphe into an imposing giant that was ten feet tall, but even our science disciplines know it to be a distinct reality. The giant they saw was not just an illusion. He had a body that was as real as any other.
The Israelites made the same mistake when they looked at Jesus. They focused on his physical reality, his short stature, and his profession as a carpenter. They ignored the fact that in the spirit realm, he had an aura that was ten feet wide and ten feet tall, a crown of twelve stars on his head, representing the twelve tribes of Israel, and a white heart. Everything about Jesus' spiritual reality proved that he was sent from God. His white heart, by itself, was proof of the purity of his motivations.
