And this covers the consequences of seeing God. They were face to face, but God’s face was “held back” so as to not kill Moses.
Exodus 33 7 Now Moses used to take the R1060 tent and pitch it outside the camp, a good distance from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting. And everyone R1061 who sought the LORD would go out to the tent of meeting which was outside the camp… 9 Whenever Moses entered the tent, the R1062 pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the entrance of the tent; and R1063 the F737 LORD would speak with Moses. …11 a. Thus the R1064 LORD used to speak to Moses face to face, just as a man speaks to his friend. …23 "Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My R1082 face shall not be seen."
And it is believed that Saul/Paul saw Christ not in his body, but as God, in His full glory. (They described it as a bright light.) He was blinded and had to have a faithful Christian heal him…
Exodus 34 29 It came about when Moses was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two R1128 tablets of the testimony were in Moses' hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the R1129 skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him. 30 So when Aaron and all the sons of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they R1130 were afraid to come near him. … 33 When Moses had finished speaking with them, he R1131 put a veil over his face. 34 But whenever Moses went in before the LORD to speak with Him, he R1132 would take off the veil until he came out; and whenever he came out and spoke to the sons of Israel what he had been commanded, 35 the R1133 sons of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone. So Moses would replace the veil over his face until he went in to speak with Him.
They were asking Christ for a sign, proof that he was the son of God, and he told them there’d be no miracle but that of his resurrection (this problem does hold a parallel, think on it). It's nice to see the face, but what did it DO for you? What emotions? What change in life?
Mt 12:39 But he answered (5679) and said (5627) unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after (5719) a sign; and there shall no sign be given (5701) to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

Heb 13:2 Be not forgetful (5737) to entertain strangers: for thereby * * some have entertained (5660) angels unawares (5627).
