Question: Whose face will they see in Revelation 22:4?

Answer: Revelation 22:3-4 says, 'And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.' Notice that even though this passage mentions God and the Lamb, the pronouns that immediately follow are singular (i.e His servants, His face, His name). This is because the Lamb is not a different being from God, but is the human manifestation of God. The throne, the face, and the name all belong to one and the same Almighty God, who took on human flesh and became the Lamb of God (the flesh of God) who bears away the sins of the world.
