Perceiving God in all his fulness. Scripture stresses that God, as spirit, is invisible to sinful human beings. He has, however, been revealed in Jesus Christ, who is his perfect likeness, and he will be seen in all his glory at the end of history when he comes in judgment.

which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
