In the garden of Eden, Adam saw God as He is. God walked and talked with Adam. He was the last man to see God’s glory face to face until Jesus came. Because of Adam’s sin, no man could stand in the presence of God without dying. Abraham saw God’s glory when God made a covenant with him. Moses, when he saw the burning bush, fell on his face and didn’t look up. On mount Sinai, Moses only saw God’s glory only as God was walking away. And all the saints of God that lived and died before Jesus, all wanted to see God and His glory. The thick veil in the Holy of Holies in the temple was there to prevent people looking upon the glory of God. And yet when Jesus died on the cross, the veil was rent in two. It was torn by the hand of God to signify our way back home. God not only wants to see us and for us to see Him, He want to talk to us as our Father. God wants to abide in us. Our flesh can’t enter into the presence of God because it is cursed. But our spirit can enter into His presence. The Bible says that as we are changed into the image and likeness of Jesus, we will see Him when He returns. The bible says by reading, praying and doing the word of God, we will be changed into His image. Then we will see the glory of God.
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14 KJV).
