I just love how God did allow them to see His face when they were on the mount during the transfiguration of Jesus.

In John 14:9 Jesus said, "Anyone who has seen me, has seen the father." What an awesome revelation that the 2 prophets who had to cover their face got to see Jesus in the flesh. What a blessing for all of us to know, one day we will get to see His face as well!
