“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” (John 1:18).
Therefore, for anyone to see and to be with God, this is only possible through Jesus, his only begotten Son (Matthew 11:27) (John 3:16-18, 14:6).
Jesus made it very clear when he was here on earth: “All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him” (Matthew 11:27).
“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture” (John 10:9).
“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
