What does God actually look like?
.
This is a really good question and one which I think most Christians have considered at some point and to be perfectly frank, it’s something we’ll need to wait on until our day in glory to see however, there are some facts which scripture shows which we can be sure of in this time. Firstly, God comments in the book of Genesis by saying “let us make man in our image”, which tells us that our being is very much like God’s. He refers to his physical form countless times throughout the scriptures about inclining his ear, the word of his mouth, sweet smells, under his feet, by his right arm and so on.  Even in the emotional/heart/mind, he talks about being grieved, satisfied, joyful, sorrowful and happy which builds us up a picture of a very real, amazing, personal God toward us, as his children.
.
Aside from what he actually looks like, much of the above is confirmed very clearly in the scriptures through the coming of Jesus Christ walking among us. Jesus said if you’ve seen him you’ve seen the Father and it was true, Jesus displayed all those human traits of feeling and showing grief, sorrows, joy, frustrations and much more, as an example to us of God the Father. Jesus was and is, the express image of God as the scriptures tell us, so the more we get to know him, the more we’ll know the Father.
.
So, for what he actually looks like. Well, he tells us much about his physical form and even takes it further by saying he is not flesh and blood but spirit however, it’s just a fact that we will never know in this earthly lifetime what he actually looks like and it’s something we’ll need to wait until our time comes to find out. But oh boy, what an event to look forward to, seeing God’s face for the very first time in all his glory with nothing hidden, friend I can’t wait! Hope this answers your question. God bless…..
