27. How did Stephen see "Jesus standing on the right hand of God.See Acts7:55. Was God standing in His own right hand or are they separate beings?

Thanks for the wonderful question.

Consider the following verse:

“Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!”
Daniel 3:25 (NLT)

When three men were thrown into the fire, the king saw four men in the fire. It can be real and perceived. In the verse you referenced, Jesus was at "God's right hand." That could mean so many things, and the person perceiving it must have felt that it was what he was observing. It may be similar to waking up from a dream, and it could feel so real (and perhaps it truly is a divine word or vision from God).

The truth is, God speaks to us in ways beyond scientific means. God can show us things or make us to perceive things that we cannot explain. It would be easiest if we can accept that, but it is not easy in a world where scientific understanding is required first (I am a scientist and an engineer by the way).

Do you believe God can do miracles? Do you believe God can "show" you His glory? What if there was a man in that "glory" and you felt it was Jesus? In the end, we can always justify it was just a dream, or we can believe God was directing us to come to know Him. The Bible is full of sections where you may need faith to make sense of it, and this is one of them.

Prayer Tents is a Christian mission organization that serves Christians around the world and their local bodies to make disciples ("evangelize") more effectively in their communities. Prayer Tents provides resources to enable Christians to form discipleship-focused small groups and make their gatherings known so that other "interested" people may participate and experience Christ in their midst. Our Vision is to make disciples in all nations through the local churches so that anyone seeking God can come to know Him through relationships with other Christians near them.
