Question:

Why can't we see God?


Answer:

Adam and Eve died to God because of their sin. They once had direct contact with God because He walked in the Garden with them (Genesis 3:8). Mankind lost that close relationship and it will only be regained when sin is destroyed. "And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God"" (Revelation 21:3). Until that time, we cannot see the face of our God. "You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live" (Exodus 33:20).
