No One Has Seen God at Any Time

John 1:18  

No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

God the Father has never been seen or heard by human beings. Jesus Christ said, “And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form” (John 5:37).

The Word of God, also known as the Son of God and Jesus Christ, is the One who has interacted with humanity, both in the Old Testament and the New Testament. The apostle Paul explained that the spiritual Rock that ancient Israel drank from was Christ (1 Corinthians 10:4).

In His life here on this earth, Jesus Christ revealed the Father to us. Jesus told His disciples, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father” (John 14:9) since the Father dwelt in Him. Jesus also showed us the way to the Father: “No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).
