#3- The Invisibility of God: Scripturally Speaking.

The Bible does not avoid the issue of invisibility – it is entirely upfront about it. And I want to be as upfront as the Scriptures are.

Take a look at John 1, and verse 18 in particular.

No one has ever seen God.

That is the 'Invisibility of God' in a nutshell.

People had only seen that which God allowed them to see, and that frustrated many. The Psalmists, Job, King David, Israel, many of the Prophets and Kings. They had a problem with the Invisibility of God. And they all cried something along the lines of: "Hide not your face from me."
