    What Do You Think God Looks Like? How do you Perceive Him?

    When you think about the concept of God, how do you envision Him in your mind? Is it Energy, a man, a "being of light"?

    My Dear Sweet Friends,

    God lookest like, and is EVERYTHING.  When we lookest into the mirror we see God!  When we lookest at thyself we see God!   God is both the creating and destroying energy of all creation, and all creation is an expression of God in some form or other.  The tiniest insect is an expression of God, a form that God desire to be expressed in.

    God is not to look at. God is a feeling. Do not try to figure it out. I will give you brain freeze.

    (Tongue-in-cheek) ...

    Him? ... I always thought of God as a She? ;-)

    Are we projecting ourselves on the infinite when we try to hold God in mind and imagine him/her/it as like this or like that? My upbringing and conditioning keeps 'him' as a presence that exists somewhere ... but ...

    Another thought ... if God is infinite .. then by definition that includes everything otherwise God wouldn't be infinite! ... So God looks like everything seen and unseen!

    Hmmmm ... good question - trying to answer it tells us more about ourselves than anything.

    First of all!...God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. St John 4:24 He is not to be played with. He is a God of Love and a God of Wrath! You cannot see a spirit. A spirit is invisible. He is OUR CREATOR! He made everything your eyes behold. No man can look upon God and live because he is as a CONSUMING Fire! When he get's angry he send his wrath in forms of Natural Disasters. Can you feel the air? No! Can you feel the wind? Yet you know he is present without denial. Why do ppl call OMG when troubles come? Because he cannot be seen he needed a body to get into to be seen, in which he got into Jesus, that is the name. etc. The spirit of God got into Jesus. In Him we live, move and have our being.

    Man cannot conceive of a "look" of God because He is power, the great I AM that I AM. God is spirit. We are spirit yet we cannot "see" our spirit.

    Personally, I do not envision God in my mind. I communicate with Him in my spirit.  Love and peace.

    Forever His,

    In trying to perceive God, perhaps what you are truly searching for is an acceptance of what He would give for you to be. 

    We are the ones to seek this perception within our own line of thinking to subtly suggest that we are "ok" with God.  It would be my belief God would perceive us to be all we can be within His view.

    If you search your heart and the answer comes back, "NO", I would suggest you have a negative perception of what God is.

    God says we are created in His image. Look in a mirror and God is in the reflection, but you will only notice Him spiritually not physically.

    God is one, I can prove it according to my observation and by giving one simple example.

    if i say to you that find out a single person same as you, you cannot find it. each and every human being is unique in ths word according to his chracteristics. So we can say that God resides in each human being. So God is one. He who understand himself, he can understand God.

    Just look in the mirror. Or all around you. The Devine, All-That-Is, God or whatever name you give it is all around you. There is nothing else!

    God is a spirit and chooses to reveal himself in a frame that looks like that of a man.

    When I think about God, I see Him in Jesus, and He wasn't just a concept. God the Father showed Himself (His character) in His Son Jesus. I'm so glad He came to earth because we were pretty well in the dark until then.
    The whole Old Testament looked forward to Him, and now we look back and see Him more clearly. One day we'll see Him again!

    The books of Daniel and the Revelation in the Bible describe Jesus.
    He is glorious, and will be all the Light we need in the hereafter. All darkness will be finally removed because it cannot live in the presence of the Light.
    He refers to Himself as "He" (the masculine) so that is how we need to see Him.
    He is all powerful - all that moves and has breath are moved by the Word of His power. That is how He created all things.

    I agree with RevLady man cannot conceive of a "look" of God, I believe God is light, pure energy, the source of all energies.

    I've always imagined this myself. I've conjured up so many images and recently read a book called, “Heaven is For Real,” that put those images to rest.

    There was a four year old little boy named Colton Burpo who had died and went to Heaven.

    In the book Colton talks about meeting Jesus, John the Baptist, his great grandfather and seeing Satan!

    When the Colton came back from Heaven, one the questions his father asked was, What did Jesus look like?

    His father showed him a bunch of pictures of Jesus and he would scrunch up his face and say, Jesus didn't look like that. That's not Him.

    All of the pictures were of an old, feeble, meek-looking Jesus.

    So one day, Colton's dad showed him a painting of Jesus done by a Ukranian girl named Akiane whose mom was an atheist and who had never attented school and had NO concept or experience with God whatsoever. 

    (God is amazing!) So in her painting, Jesus was young, masculine, strong, had greenish-blue eyes – that Colton kept describing as beautiful – under bold brows, and a beard.

    When Colton saw the picture, he said, That one's right! That Jesus!

    Colton later said that when we die and go to Heaven we're not ourselves – nobody is old. We're youthful and strong, and all of the wear-and-tear that our bodies suffer here on Earth disappear!

    Well this is my honest answer and my opinion.

    I now know that the Shroud of Jesus is real, there is a lot of controversy on it, however go on utube and watch.


    this is the real face of Jesus revealed and I so believe it is Jesus, I can feel it in my bones and asked God for guidance and he led me here, to his scripture.

    this one in Gods words:.....occupying themselves with myths and endless genealogies. These myths and genealogies raise a lot of questions rather than promoting God’s plan, which centers in faith. 

    and here is here is the same scripture in KJV
    Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. Timothy 1:4

    It is very interesting.

    Now for Gods looks,  yes I do believe I know what he looks like. He came to me when I desperately asked for him to show himself. He came to my home (several times) left an outline on my table from the sun of his image.

    He also presented himself in a vision to me. Now we are not suppose to boast according to Gods words, I do not know if this is boasting, but I am simply answering the question to way I was presented it. It was quite a clear vivid vision.

    He looked like Jesus except his hair seemed shorter (from this video on the face of Jesus) he was wearing a long white robe, sandels and had a gold sasche (not sure how to spell that, after all I won the spelling bee according to my spelling teacher but I either lost my wonderful spelling talents as I got older or my teacher lied to me)around his waist.

    He and the whole experience was quite amazing.

    Have a good one
