They cannot see the dead.
And if we cannot see the dead, we certainly cannot see alive.
From my understanding, if we could see, we would not be dead!
It has something to do with the beginning and the end, the Alpha & Omega.
Yes, <GOD> is both, but dead comes before <ALIVE> and not the other way around.
When we can look in the mirror and see what Man has made of us, it will be proof positive that the life we were formed from is now active and is no longer dead!
