Come and show us your face, O Lord, who are seated upon the Cherubim, and we will be saved. Cf. Psalm 80: 4, 2
Does God have a face? Indeed he does. It is true that His face appears in the faces of friends, and foes, and poor, and rich. But, all of that is because, once upon a time, on a specific date, at a specific place, at a specific hour of the day, God was born as a man among men. And in so doing, he satisfied centuries of longing on the part of His chosen people; they longed to see His face and live. For the Christian, God does indeed have a real, human face.
And at the same time, His face is the face of the eternal Word, whose throne is the outstretched hands of angels. Therefore, with the great gap bridged between heaven and earth, we can truly be saved.
