Jesus Christ's Face
(Revelation 22.3-5)
Page 310

"No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever." (Revelation 22.3-5)✞

Face of God

Coming Soon ButterflyHere is the final excerpt of the description of the "City of God." There will not be any cursed thing there. That is to say, there will be none of the sins which harm the Christian life. The promise of Matthew 5.8 will come true that the pure in heart will see God. As Jesus said, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God."

Greater than Moses

MosesThe writer of the Book of Revelation says that they will see Jesus Christ's face. We may best understand the greatness of that promise to see the face of God by remembering that the Christian is promised a privilege which was denied even to Moses. He was told in Exodus 33.20, "But," he [God] said, "you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live. Then the Lord said, 'There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock. When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand and you will see my back; but my face must not be seen." It is in Jesus Christ's face alone that men and women, boys and girls can see God.✞
