“One day this veil before our eyes will be removed, and we “shall see Him face to face” (1 Corinthians 13:12).
This is an interesting bible quote, I chose it because it challenged me to think about all those times when God could have been stood right in front of my eyes if I only had that special relationship with God, I would see him every time. It is one thing for me to speak with God while hearing His words answering me so clearly in my mind and quite another to see Him face to face.
When I remember the bible story where Moses was stood in the presence of God and he was told by God that he could not look upon God’s face and that he could only look when Gods back was turned. It made we ponder (consider) how was it then safe to gaze upon God’s back. In my own mind I justified this conundrum by imagining that an extremely bright light may have been emanating from Gods eyes so brightly that it would have blinded Moses like an eclipse if it caught his mortal stare. But if he or indeed I were a supernatural being we might have a similar light radiating from our eyes too so the impact of God’s light would be cancelled out. For this reason I look forward to the day when I shall revel in the experience of seeing Him face to face.
