Seek The Face of GOD: For It Is Loaded With And Has The Unlimited POWER & Glory of GOD, ALL His Goodness.
The Face of GOD is unlimitedly so POWERFUL that, no man in this natural state can see It, and live.
As THE LORD said to Moses,
“You cannot see My Face; for no man shall see Me, and live.” Exodus 33:20.
But we can, and MUST seek The Face of GOD by prayer and see It by Faith, and we will be blessed and blessed and preserved in these turbulent times.
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7.
Just believe and pray for It like a little child.
By The Grace of GOD, THE LORD appears to me a lot. In one of His Appearances, I saw Him in a dream with His Face shining like the sun, as He ministered healing in a church, accompanied by about six angels, (Malachi 4:2).

NB. Although we can see The Face of JESUS now in this flesh because He is GOD manifested in the flesh, (1 Timothy 3:16), no one can see The Face of THE FATHER and THE SON in Their Divine Completeness, and live.
For GOD “alone has immortality, dwelling in Unapproachable Light, Whom no man has seen or can see, to Whom be Honor and Everlasting Power. Amen.” (1 Timothy 6:16).
I have heard various brethren who have seen THE FATHER on The Throne in Heaven, who all testify invariably that His Face was obscured and could not be seen.
His Grace and Love enable us to seek and see His Face dimly if we believe and pray so.
“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then Face to Face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” 1 Corinthians 13:12.
It’s all about fervent seeking.
When Jacob relentlessly sought THE LORD and did not let go of Him, He saw His Face, and was blessed and preserved.
“And He [THE LORD] said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.” But he [Jacob] said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!”...Then Jacob asked, saying, “Tell me Your NAME, I pray.” And He said, “Why is it that you ask about My NAME?” And He blessed him there. So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: “For I have seen God Face to Face, and my life is preserved.” Just as he crossed over Penuel the sun rose on him, and he limped on his hip.” Genesis 32:30-31.
THE LORD loves it when we seek Him, lay hold of Him and say like Jacob: “I will not let You go unless You bless me!”
When THE LORD rose from the dead, important men of GOD: Peter and John, after seeing The Empty Tomb “went away again to their own homes.” (John 20:10).
But Mary Magdalene stayed behind outside The Tomb weeping and seeking THE LORD’s Body, “discerning THE LORD’s Body.” (1 Corinthians 11:29) — The Offering of The Body of JESUS CHRIST to deliver us from the devil’s bondage of sin, (Hebrews 2:14-15;10:10).
As it turned out, she was the first person to see The Risen JESUS — even before THE FATHER Himself!
We must be unrelenting in seeking The Face of THE LORD. And He is sure to show up and bless us.
In the days we are in, only those who seek The Face of GOD fervently like Jacob will be blessed and preserved.
“When You said, “Seek My Face,” My heart said to You, “Your Face, LORD, I will seek.”” Psalm 27:8.
Everything of GOD, ALL His Goodness, Which is His Glory, is in His Face. The Power and The Glory in The Face of GOD are released to bless and preserve us when we seek Him.
This is why, the devil, knowing this, incited those mocking our LORD in the court of the high priest, and “they spat in His Face and beat Him”. “And having blindfolded Him, they struck Him on The Face”. (Matthew 26:67; Luke 22:64).
The Part of GOD having, hosting and releasing ALL His POWER and GREAT Glory, yes, ALL His Goodness, is the very Part they spat on!
It was an unthinkable, calculated blasphemy against The Living GOD! So unthinkable, it is horrifying with The Fear of GOD, squirming, DEEPLY discomforting and distressing to think of it – the sheer blatant blasphemy!
They chose to blaspheme What was to bless them!
“THE LORD bless you and keep you; THE LORD make His Face shine upon you, And be Gracious to you; THE LORD lift up His Countenance upon you, And give you Peace.” Numbers 6:24-26.
But the mockers chose not to be blessed by seeking and receiving “The Light of The Knowledge of The Glory of GOD in The Face of JESUS CHRIST.” (2 Corinthians 4:6).
‘When You said, “Seek My Face,” My heart said to You, “Your Face, LORD, I will seek.”’ Psalm 27:8.
THE LORD told Moses to bless the people by praying His Face and Countenance upon them. And He told David to seek His Face — so as to be blessed, empowered and have The Glory on Him.
But It was The Very Face the blasphemers spat on, chaired and championed by the high priest.
The Face of GOD is loaded with, and hosts The Power and ALL The Goodness of GOD for us to seek.
This is why GOD told David to seek It. His Face.
“When You said, “Seek My Face,” My heart said to You, “Your Face, LORD, I will seek.”” Psalm 27:8.
David so got the revelation and understood its indispensability that, He repeatedly pleaded with GOD to not hide His Face from Him.
“Do not hide Your Face from me…” Psalm 27:9.
“And do not hide Your Face from Your servant, for I am in trouble; Hear me speedily.” Psalm 69:17.
“Answer me speedily, O LORD; my spirit fails! Do not hide Your Face from me, Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.” Psalm 143:7.
The point is that, without seeking The Face of GOD, a person is like the dead, though breathing.
Can you imagine life on earth with the sun turned off? No daylight, no moonlight, no heat.
In fact, without the sun, all life on earth will die.
As NASA puts it,
“Without the Sun’s heat and light, the Earth would be a lifeless ball of ice-coated rock. The Sun warms our seas, stirs our atmosphere, generates our weather patterns, and gives energy to the growing green plants that provide the food and oxygen for life on Earth.”
Now, imagine having GOD shine His Face on you everyday with all His Glory and the blessings therein! Imagine GOD shining on you daily like the sun, as you pray so according to His WORD, (Numbers 6:23-27; Malachi 4:2).
You will be fresh and flourishing. You shall flourish like a palm tree, and grow like a cedar in Lebanon, (Psalm 92:12-15).
JESUS CHRIST is “The Sun of Righteousness with healing in His Wings” Who arises with blessings for those who know His NAME. Without Him, a person is dead (though he breaths) in this life, and in The Age To Come.
“But to you who fear My NAME The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His Wings; And you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves.” Malachi 4:2.
To “grow fat like stall-fed calves” is not advocating bodily obesity, but exceedingly abundant blessings.
Just as nothing can live on earth without the sun, so no one can live without The Sun of Righteousness With healing in His Wings: THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
And without seeking The Face of GOD, a believer is dead in his walk with GOD.
“For it is THE GOD Who commanded light to shine out of darkness, Who has shone in our hearts to give The Light of The Knowledge of The Glory of GOD in The Face of JESUS CHRIST.” 2 Corinthians 4:6.
The more we seek THE LORD and His Face, the more we become like Him and blessed with His Glory in His Glory.
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror The Glory of THE LORD, are being transformed into The Same Image from Glory to Glory, just as by THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD.” 2 Corinthians 3:18.
Only with a pure heart can we see GOD and be blessed.
As THE LORD has said, “Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see GOD.” (Matthew 5:8).
During His Humiliation and other Sufferings, the mockers of our LORD spat on His Face, but WE must pant for His Face always. For in His Face is The Power and The Glory, yes, all His Goodness for our good. Hallelu-YAH!
To Him be Glory and Honour and Dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Always pray THE LORD to cause His Face to shine upon you, to lift up His Countenance upon you: your life, family, ministry, business, career, finances, and all other things that pertain to life and GODliness concerning you. And you you will be blessed with His Power and Glory; all His Goodness.
For so He commanded Moses:
“And THE LORD spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them: “THE LORD bless you and keep you; THE LORD make His Face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; THE LORD lift up His Countenance upon you, And give you Peace.” ’ “So they shall put My NAME on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.” Numbers 6:22-27.
As priests of GOD (Revelation 1:6; 5:10) under The New Covenant far better than Aaron and his sons had, we can bless ourselves and others this way.
Do so and have THE NAME OF JESUS on you and others for Him to bless you.
Just as things live and thrive on the earth because the sun shines on them, if you pray The Face of THE LORD to shine on you and others, He is mighty to save, deliver all easily, and cause you to flourish, to live and thrive.
“Restore us, O GOD; Cause Your Face to shine, and we shall be saved! Restore us, O GOD of hosts; Cause Your Face to shine, And we shall be saved! Restore us, O LORD GOD of hosts; Cause Your Face to shine, And we shall be saved!” Psalm 80:3,7,19.
Seek THE LORD, seek His Strength, Power and Glory. Seek His Face always.
“Seek THE LORD and His Strength; Seek His Face evermore!” 1 Chronicles 16:11.
“Seek THE LORD and His Strength; Seek His Face evermore!” Psalm 105:4.
“When You said, “Seek My Face,” My heart said to You, “Your Face, LORD, I will seek.” “ Psalm 27:8.
“The LORD Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:22.
“Farewell” Acts 15:29.
~ Jacob Addison Awagah
Jacob, an apostle of JESUS CHRIST by The Will of GOD, according to The Promise of Life Which is in CHRIST JESUS, (2 Timothy 1:1).
Like John, I like to put my head to The Heart of JESUS so as to know and do His Will always. What’s in His Heart is what matters now and FOREVER. His Heart’s Desire is my only desire. My will is to do His Will.
As John was, I am the disciple whom JESUS loves. And like Paul, I am “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 3:1) for His Purpose forever: to obey Him always.
NB. Surely, the disciple whom JESUS loves and “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS”, like ALL The Promises of GOD, are available to every believer to obtain, just as John and Paul did.
“And having been perfected, He [JESUS] became The Author of Eternal Salvation to all who obey Him,” Hebrews 5:9.
