What Does God Look Like?

There is no consensus on what God looks like, as different religions and belief systems have different understandings of the divine. In many Abrahamic religions, God is believed to be incorporeal and transcendent, meaning that God is not confined to a physical body and exists beyond the material world. As a result, God is often depicted as being beyond human comprehension and beyond the ability of humans to fully grasp or understand.

In some religions, God is described as being formless and eternal, existing outside of time and space. In others, God is described as having a specific form or appearance, such as a human-like being or a celestial being with wings. Some depictions of God show God as being all-knowing and all-powerful, while others depict God as being loving and compassionate.

Despite the many different interpretations of what God looks like, the concept of God is often tied to the idea of a higher power or supreme being that is responsible for the creation and maintenance of the universe. This higher power is often seen as a source of morality and guidance, and is revered by believers as a divine being worthy of worship.

Overall, the appearance of God is a matter of personal belief and interpretation, and different people may have different understandings of what God looks like based on their own cultural, religious, and personal experiences.

If You Want to Know What God Looks Like, Then Ask What Jesus Looks Like

John 1:1 says “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

So, we know the Word was God.

And notice what the “word” did. Same author. Same letter.

John 1:14And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us; and we saw His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth”.

So clearly, Jesus is God in the flesh. So if we want to know what God looks like, we simply need to ask, what did Jesus look like?

There is no definitive answer to what Jesus looked like, as there are no physical descriptions of him in the Bible and no surviving portraits or images of him from his lifetime. However, many depictions of Jesus in art and literature throughout history have depicted him as a tall, athletic man with long, flowing brown hair and beard, and piercing blue or brown eyes.

These depictions are often based on artistic conventions and cultural expectations rather than historical fact. In reality, it is impossible to know exactly what Jesus looked like.

What we do know about Jesus is that he was a first-century Jewish man who lived in the region of Palestine, which is now Israel. He was likely born in the city of Bethlehem and raised in the town of Nazareth.

Despite the lack of concrete information about Jesus’ appearance, many people throughout the world continue to be deeply moved and inspired by his message of love, compassion, and forgiveness. Whether he looked like the traditional depictions or not, it is his teachings and actions that have had a lasting impact on humanity.

Jesus Will Always Be Enough Branded

Author: Mike Cynar

Mike Cynar was raised in a church setting where he frequently noticed that many attendees would eventually drift away. The church labeled these individuals as ‘back sliders’ or ‘fake Christians’ just looking for ‘fire insurance’. However, Mike realized the issue was rarely with these individuals but instead with the church’s message itself. The teachings heavily emphasized behavior improvement and one’s flaws, with only a fleeting mention of one’s identity in Christ. It felt as though every sermon was tailored to the church of Corinth, who as we know or committing sins that even unbelievers don’t partake in. This trend was noticeable not just in one denomination, but across Baptist, Catholic, Pentecostal, and many other churches. Upon understanding the true essence of the gospel – that our righteousness comes from Jesus’ actions, not our own – Mike was inspired to liberate believers from lifeless sermons and reconnect them with the genuine teachings of Jesus. He believes that one can nurture a vibrant and growing bond with Jesus, unhindered by rigid religious practices. And thus, “Jesus Without Religion” was born.

It turns out that it is grace that leads to repentance. And if our heart is to get others to walk in the Spirit and live a godly life, then the best approach is not a beat down sermon, but rather to remind other that it is only when we understand our true identity in Christ that we will live it out. Yes, it’s true, if you’re convinced that God thinks you’re a dirty sinner, you will ultimately continue a lifestyle that mirrors that view, but if you truly believe that even on your worst day, you are called holy, sanctified, justified, and will be presented blameless in the end, well, it turns out this is the secret to living out on the outside what has been worked in to the inside.
