What Does God Look Like?

God continued, "But you may not see My face. No one can see Me and live."
Exodus 33:20 (The Message Bible).

God told Moses that no human can see Him and live (Exodus 33:20) and that is why no one knows what God looks like. In fact, God has no body because He is Spirit (John 4:24). Yet, the Holy Scriptures tell of many people who have had encounters with God although not directly.  For instance, Moses saw God’s “back” (Exodus 33:23). Isaiah saw God sitting on His throne high and lifted up (Isaiah 6:1–8). And Ezekiel saw God “like that of a man” (Ezekiel 1:26) clothed in fire and brilliant light (Ezekiel 1:27-28) standing above a storm cloud resembling a chariot (Ezekiel 1:1–28). Nevertheless, God has outdone these limits by sending His Son, Jesus. Jesus is God in human form (John 1:14; John 14:8–9; Colossians 1:15). With Jesus, humankind witnessed the fullness of God (Colossians 2:9)! In fact, Jesus promises to reveal Himself all those who believe (John 14:21).
