Theres that verse in the NT where Jesus talks about "their angels in heaven" - when he refers to the little children (Matt 18:10) and their angels in heaven seeing the face of the Father in heaven. This verse shows people can have angels.
I have not seen in the new testament where no one could see Jesus' face. That to me is something solely attributed to His Father God Almighty Yahweh. Jesus came to earth as "Immanuel" - "God with us". The NT describes how Jesus looked with compassion and Im sure people were looking right back at Him. His face wasnt shrouded like Moses'. Also we all know He raised people back to life here on earth... I beleive that the person of Christ is definately linked with His Father and the Holy Spirit. Yet I am very careful about combining everything and how I do it because the bible clearly says that while Jesus has authority over everything His father is the only thing He is not sovreign over (1 cor.15:25-28)... I am non denominational by the way, Im just pointing out what the bible says. We definately see the Son following in His fathers foot steps and doing all He does. I dont understand how God separated Himself into three persons (and even more of an enigma is the seven Spirits of God/seven fold Spirit (rev 5:6). You clearly see all of the attributes I mentioned above in the bible... So I rest knowing little old me will never have it figured out and I attribute it to the awesome unfathomable nature of God...
Stay strong everyone.

Ps. I personally dont believe Jesus walks the earth today. When He returns we wil all see Him 4 sure. I believe He is seated at the right hand of the Father. I believe that its His Spirit, the Holy Spirit that is moving about the earth doing His will. Brings to mind the fruit of the Spirit. I looked at the Holy Spirit in a new light when I read the words "do not greive the Spirit of GOd". He wants us to have peace Joy and all those other attributes no matter what as we are filled with His Spirit. SO lets face those trials filled with the Spirit and holding on to the victory we have in Christ Jesus.


Trials and Temptations

(NIV)James 1:2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

God does test us but He does not tempt us. There's a very big difference. Trials and tribulations will be ours. We're assured of that. We grow through them.

The Word says we have specific angels assigned to us. I know they are very active in our lives. They are the army of the Lord, not us. We are His princes and princesses!

Many people saw the face of Jesus before and after the resurrection. I see nothing in the Scriptures that tell us we cannot see His face. You know that feeling when a baby is coming soon, be it yours or a loved one's child, and you literally ACHE to touch that baby's face and breathe in it's scent? I feel that so much for our Betrothed. He impressed upon me that the way I see His face now and touch His body now is through the church, which is His body on earth. He is visible and touchable right now through our brothers and sisters. I like that.

Yes I do Believe that Jesus is among us testing us and I also believe we are surrounded by angels guiding us, but I also believe that there are good and evil angels and we have the choice to do the right thing.
I do not remember ever reading this in the Bible but I could be wrong.

Do you believe that Jesus walks the earth testing your faith? Also, Do you believe that angels help us in our lives every day?

Finally, Does it say in the Bible that you cannot see Jesus face and live in your mortal body? I know it says that about God but what about Jesus? I had some tell me it was both in the Bible.

Thanks for your help.

I asked God to spare me pain. And God said "No," suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me. I asked God to make my spirit grow. And God said "No," I must grow on my own as he prunes me to make me fruitful. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. And God said "No," I will give you life that you may enjoy all things. I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me. And God said, "Now you got it!"
