Oh, you think you might have a problem with that exercise? You might think that there are people of different nationalities, different customs, different religious beliefs, different political leaning, different behaviors and different social standings to whom you would have a problem treating as if they are already perfected.
Are you perfected yet? Are all of your behaviors and actions perfected? Are all of your thoughts only good and pure?
Yes, it is written that you are already seated with Jesus in the heavens. That means that every person with whom you have negative thoughts and feelings, people whose actions offend you, people who judge you, people who oppose you, people who confront you, people whom you consider to be unbelievers and hate mongers, they are also seated with Jesus In the heavens because they might accept Me in the future. There is room for all of you because you are already perfected spirits in My eyes.
You might argue, Father, but there are people who have not believed in and confessed Jesus as their savior. Tomorrow might be the very day they make the decision and are changed, yes, in the twinkling of an eye. That is not for you to judge and certainly not for you to decide that you will only treat them as perfected when they are fleshly perfected in your eyes.
When you imagine people as perfected, they will be perfected in your eyes because they are already perfected in My eyes.
Forgiveness is in the eyes of the beholder just like forgiveness is already extended from Me to all people. You can view every person as forgiven and perfected in your sight because they are perfected in My sight, washed as white as snow.
