2. The Vision of the Soul

Where faith is concerned, sight in makes exactly the same difference as it does in other things.
It gives a new sense of certainty, and a more vivid consciousness of spiritual things.

Jesus Christ declared that no man hath seen God at any time. When Moses prayed that he might see the Divine glory, Jehovah replied, 'Thou canst not see my face: for man shall not see me and live.'

God is a Spirit; invisible and intangible.
And yet people are commanded to seek His face that they may live.

All through the history of the world men have been seeing God.
They have found Him in nature and in history,
discerned Him in those to whom they have ministered and for whom they have suffered,
and have communed with Him in the exercise of worship and prayer.

In these words of Christ there is the promise of vision; not merely proofs and signs of His presence, or communications from Him,
but the open vision of God.
The promise is not future but present. Stephen and Paul, Peter and John beheld His glory, and so may we.

It is only through Jesus that we can come to the Father, but Jesus undertakes to reveal the Father to those who come to Him.
He makes atonement for sin, and restores men to God.
