The following is the results of your search for face.
Face: Means simply presence, as when it is recorded that Adam and Eve hid
themselves from the "face [R.V., 'presence'] of the Lord God"
(Exodus 33:14,15) where the same Hebrew word is rendered
"presence"). The "light of God's countenance" is his favour
(Daniel 9:17) "Face" signifies also anger, justice, severity
(Exodus 2:15; Psalms 68:1; Revelation 6:16) To "provoke God to his face"
(Isaiah 65:3) is to sin against him openly. The Jews prayed with their
faces toward the temple and Jerusalem
(1 Kings 8:38,44,48; Daniel 6:10) To "see
God's face" is to have access to him and to enjoy his favour
(Psalms 17:15; 27:8) This is the privilege of holy angels
(Luke 1:19) The "face of Jesus Christ"
(2 Corinthians 4:6) is the office and
person of Christ, the revealer of the glory of God
