Revelation 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Exodus Chapter 24:10 And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. 1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him for we shall see him as he is.

    open question; on exodus 24:10, what are the elders seeing here? Was this an interpretation of his presence constrained by human vocabulary/interpretation or simply the reverential description of the writer of this biblical book? Looking for insightful answers.

    Edwina Hawley, I by all Scripture disagree that Moses and his holy entourage actually saw God. Moses saw glimpses of God and his entourage saw even less over the years in the wilderness. This chapter talks about seeing clouds and a sapphire pavement for God 's feet but like Matthew Henry said in his commentary they did not see enough of God to create a sort of imagine. John 1:8 says, "No man hath seen God at anytime the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the father, he hath declared him ". 1 Cor. 13:12 says, "For now we see through a glass, darkly but then face to face: now I know in part but then shall I know even as also I am known ". To see God in his glory for a man would be like taking a trip to the Sun when he get near he would simply be destroyed. Imagine how bright our Holy God is. God bless us all and in the understanding of his Word. Glory be to Jehovah in the highest through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!

    God knows his own way to manifest us as his own people. His ways is higher than our ways and his thoughts is higher than our thoughts. He knows how to provide us his message and protection in any situation may have. Our God is true and there is no other God before him. Our Heavenly Father show 's his mercy and grace to his people because of his love he sent his only Son Jesus Christ to redeemed the world for us to be save and have life. Keep thanking God and praise Jesus for his blood that sheds for us. Jesus loves you and his words is true and purified 7 times.
  • I believe they saw Jesus. I believe the reason He said no one has seen the Father except the Son was because He was the Father and the Son. He was God Almighty and as Isaiah said it - the Everlasting Father. I can 't explain it but I believe it.
