The following is an interesting article by Tim Augustyn from Unlocking the Bible website. I had found it interesting because I know several Christians who were surprised (and some even in disagreement) upon hearing about this. However, none of us, including myself, could find any Biblical scripture to prove otherwise. I think it is something that most Christians either just assume will happen or they just don't even think about it. I would be interested to hear what anyone else here has to say on this matter. Enjoy the article:

Bible Q&A: Will We See God the Father in Heaven?

Will we see God the Father in heaven? The Bible teaches we will be like Jesus after the resurrection, so if we cannot see God the Father then does that mean Jesus can’t see him either?

The answer to your question is less about us and more about the nature of God. The reason we cannot “see” God the Father has to do with His nature:

“God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24)

God the Father is spirit. That means he does not have a physical body. He is invisible. He is present everywhere. And, he is not localized like we are. Any change in our nature wouldn’t help us see God, because it would take a change in His (invisible) nature.

God the Son, Jesus, is different. At the incarnation, Jesus took on human flesh and He became the God/man. That is the reason why you will be able to see Jesus and not the Father.

It is important to remember that God the Father and God the Son existed together in love in eternity past:

“Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17:24)

All this love between the Father and Son presumably happened without them “seeing” each other.

Also, while it is true that we will be like Jesus after the resurrection (sinless), we will not be like Jesus in every way (divinity).
