    God is invisible.
    Satan is invisible.
    Angels are invisible.

    ?

    Colossians 1:15
    He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.

    Why are all these being's invisible?

    Can someone explain this to me.

    They live in the spiritual realm....which is like a one-way mirror. They see us but unless we are given the spiritual faculty of sight...we can't see them.

    Oh unfair, you see if this was really true then people can monopolize others by convincing them they hold the golden ticket to Gods chocolate factory.

    You mean the saints?

    saints are humble. They won't tell you anything...they can keep a secret. Otherwise God would not reveal mysteries to them.

    So then try getting the truth out of someone who sees. You would have to get the question right.

    Humility already knows about God. It is a quick access portal.

    Sure. But that is more perceiving or sensing. People do bring spirits with them. On rare occasions....even the Holy Spirit.

    Yes, but who is able to see what? Some remain blind although they claim the ability to see.

    I would agree to a point, can maybe "see" the effects of the change in spirit but...you canot see the spirit behind that action?

    They are invisible because we are not like them.

    Therefore, unless one is born again of the spirit of God, then cannot enter into that spiritual realm and gain their sight for that higher plane of God and eternity. Without doing so, the life that we experience in the world is simply organic and short lived.

    There is nothing unfair about the open invitation that God has given. The golden ticket is not from men, but from God...and it is free. No one can give that ticket to another, except God.

    This is very likely because they have not been impressed or brainwashed with whatever their own parents or caretakers was selling. I don't mean this in an evil way, but even the best parents strongly influence their own children one way or the other. This comes back to Jesus's statement about coming as a little child. Very small children haven't been corrupted yet into a state of unbelief with regard to unacceptable sightings.

    Free means it can be turned down without consequences, otherwise it's not really free.

    Because Christians are to walk by faith, not by sight. We are to see what is invisible with our *spiritual eyes* (by the Spirit through our spirits).

    How does being born again make you see invisible thing's. OK if you're really born again and have some existential eye's to see into another world, then you should be able to describe it for me.
