Why can't we see God?

The simple answer is that humans in their current fallen state, simply couldn't handle it. In fact, even the encounters with angels that are recorded in the Bible are overwhelming at best, and terrifying at worse...and, that's only angels. Moses asked God to see His face, and God told him that if he looked directly into His face, he could not live through it (Ex 33:20)! However, because Moses had proven his love in their realtionship, God knew that the request was not out of casual curiousity. Therefore, God arranged for Moses to see the edge of His robe as He passed by, in a way that would keep Moses safe (Ex 33:18-23). God reveals Himself to each person in the way, measure, and timing that He knows you can handle. Father God's amazing compassion with humans is demonstrated when He comes to earth in a human body, as Jesus Christ, to reveal Himself and communicate on a human level (Rom 5:8). When Jesus Christ went to the cross and sacrificed Himself, He bridged the gap between man and God (1 Tim 2:5), making it possible for His Holy Spirit to be with us at all times (Jn 14:16). Therefore, He wants to refine your spiritual senses and connect with you on a deeper level than your natural senses.
