Even if we never see God in a vision, there will come a time when every human being, past and present – even those who crucified Jesus – will see God in person. This will be when Jesus returns to judge the world and calls every person who has ever lived to give an account of their lives. We will be there too.

Revelation 1:5-8 ESV  … Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth.  To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Romans 14:11-12 ESV  for it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.

No one has the ability to see God face-to-face in our physical human (and spiritually impure) state and live. His blazing fiery holiness will consume us. If we see God during our time on earth, it will be through our spiritual eyes in visions or dreams.

Exodus 33:18-20 ESV  Moses said, “Please show me your glory.” And he said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you my name ‘The Lord.’ And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for man shall not see me and live.”

Numbers 12:6 ESV  And he said, “Hear my words: If there is a prophet among you, I the Lord make myself known to him in a vision; I speak with him in a dream.
