God's Hidden Face

Sister Ruth Burrows
“God wills us to keep our eyes closed and not seek to peer into his face. Any attempt of that kind would lead to delusions which are only a form of idol making. Think of his word to Moses: 
‘You cannot see my face; for man shall not see me and live… Behold, there is a place by me where you shall stand upon the rock; and while my glory passes by I will put you in a cleft in the rock and I will cover you with my hand until I have passed; then I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back; but my face shall not be seen.’ 
Fire Upon the Earth
