How these men could "see God" and yet live (contrast Exodus 33:20), is perhaps resolved by the reference to this event in Deuteronomy 4:12: "And the Lord spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice." No man has seen God in His triune essence at any time (John 1:18). Thus no man can--or should ever attempt--to make an image of the Godhead. This supper in the presence of God after the great covenant of the Law had been accepted by the people and sealed with a blood sacrifice on the twelve-pillared altar is a type of the coming "marriage supper of the Lamb" (Revelation 19:6-9).
