Kevin Hofsas has seen the face of God—an Impossible Event—needing the favor of God and the circumvention of the law of nature—‘for no man may see the face of God and live,’ Exodus 33:20. One condition for this encounter was set when Kevin wandered far from God on a counterfeit path of salvation. While there, a lesser event misappropriated the laws of life and death, circumventing the natural law God foreordained.
To understand the lesser event, first understand that humans are luminous beings. What is a luminous being? It is a creature of light. We cannot see it with our natural eyes, but in the realm of the spirit, every human is a luminous being. What does a luminous being look like? It appears as a lightning bright radiance that extends outward from a human body two feet and is egg shaped. It consists of countless billions of laser taunt, hair-fine strands of light. And every single strand is alive with a lightning bright brilliance. And, the luminous being perceives with . . . all of them. Why is it hidden from us? Because the luminous creature requires a person to mature through more levels than is humanly possible. A process derailed by Original Sin in the Garden of Eden.
Yet Jesus revealed this on the mount of transfiguration in Matthew 17:2. Multiple times in God’s word, angels have also shone brightly. Scripture points out God is light, He shines like the sun and promises to make us like him. Christ himself foretold of this transformation in Matthew 13:43, ‘Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.’
So to understand the event that permitted God to reveal his face to Kevin, one must first grasp this luminous aspect. It is a huge step to believe. Kevin, when he first read of it, thought, ‘If this is true, it’s the best thing that could ever happen!’ Launching into the unknown, he determined to find out if the claim was true. As it happened, while upon that false path, the luminous creature was awakened by a preposterous, unbelievable act—the act of tricking it with a false death.
The false death awakened the slumbering luminous creature and is why God did not break his own word when He revealed His face to Kevin. For the luminous creature cannot remotely be considered a man—and the event of tricking the luminous body with a false death still qualifies as death. God’s word remains true—no man may see the face of God and live.
In Kevin’s own words, “After the fruitlessness of that false path unfolded, God brought me back to himself through the matchless grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.” And it is for you, friend, that Kevin has written of his rapturous, mesmerizing, blessed encounters with the Most High God. The same God who created the universe. The God who created you. The God who loves you.
