FACE

Face and presence, expressed by the same word in Hebrew, are often put for the person himself, Genesis 48:11 Exodus 33:14 Isaiah 63:9. No man has seen the face of God, that is, had a full revelation of his glory, Exodus 33:20 John 1:18 1 Timothy 6:16. To see him "face to face," is to enjoy his presence, Genesis 32:30 Numbers 14:14 Deuteronomy 5:4, and have a clear manifestation of his nature and grace, 1 Corinthians 13:12.
