Bill Johnson on God's face revealed in the outpouring of His Spirit
"God made a promise that combined two of the greatest experiences for the believer contained in the whole Bible - the outpouring of the Spirit and the encounter with His face. As we will see, they are in essence one and the same. He put it this way, "I will not hide My face from them any longer, for I will have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,' declares the Lord God" (Ezekiel 39:29). In this declaration, this extraordinary promise has been linked together with fulfillment of the ultimate quest.
This is stunning news - God's face is revealed in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit! When the Holy Spirit comes in power to transform lives, churches, and cities, the face of God is within reach. His face expresses the heart of who He is and what He is like."
