1 Thessalonians 2:13 "For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe."

I will begin by making this bold assumption ... that the English Bible of 1611 or any edition thereof, is the absolute inspired word of God in the English language.

I will not resort to the Hebrew or the Greek, for I believe we are not one whit at disadvantage than when the Apostle Paul's epistles were being read for the first time in the presence of the Corinthian church.

Not even the verb tense will be doubted. If this would be allowed, then error would creep in, or the temptation to wrest the Scripture to fit our own human experience might occur.

We should rather have God’s words judge us--rather than us judging God’s words.

Now, here we go!

Since the year A.D. 1900 mankind has achieved much progress towards a global utopia, not unlike what mankind attempted to accomplish in the days of Babel.

They wanted a one-world city without God. “And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” [Genesis 11:4]

This shows that mankind is very progressive by nature in his attitude towards God: a hater of God.

Do you doubt me?

Then check it out for yourself in the BOOK that God wrote to you. Go to the book of Romans, and find what the BOOK says concerning all men: “Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,” [Romans 1:30].

This is the opinion of God on the matter.

Contrariwise: This message is sent [from the messenger] in an attempt to turn you toward God — to become a lover of God … as in “lovers of God,” as found in the BOOK of God. [2 Timothy 3:4]

We will begin here in Second Corinthians, chapter four, verse six: “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

Now, here are the main points in this message:

1.The Look - 2.They Fell to Him The Muckraker & Faith

 Premise: The face of a person can be said to shine upon another person.

Further, it can be said: The face of God shining upon men is ... life.

• The face of God gives life.

• The face of God sustains life.

We live because of that shine!

 Question: What is a face?

A face is a surface of something.

The surface of particular interest is the view to the personality of a person.

Therefore, the face of a person is the window to the soul of a person – its likeness.

We have in the book of Ezekiel the likeness of four living creatures presented to us.

5. The Countenance of a Ruddy Man - 6. The Poker Face of the Beast The Face of the Son

 They feign to have a love for you, for the purpose of hurting you!

They have learned how to feign [to disconnect] their heart’s true intention from being revealed on the face’s countenance.

They can be said — to have mastered … the poker face.

7. The Face of God The Face of the Son

 This event was precursory to his revelation which will follow.

In the book of “The Revelation of Jesus Christ” we see through the eye of faith an awesome and very strange scene unfolding before us.

We see with great sight into the future where the Spirit of God shows the things “which must be hereafter.” [Revelation 4:1]
