People have seen God

Genesis 17:1

And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, Jehovah appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

Genesis 18:1

And Jehovah appeared unto him by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day.

Exodus 24:9-11

Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel. And they saw the God of Israel; and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and as it were the very heaven for clearness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: and they beheld God, and did eat and drink.

Numbers 12:6-8

And he said, Hear now my words: if there be a prophet among you, I Jehovah will make myself known unto him in a vision, I will speak with him in a dream. My servant Moses is not so; he is faithful in all my house: with him will I speak mouth to mouth, even manifestly, and not in dark speeches; and the form of Jehovah shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant, against Moses?

Acts 7:2

And when he was cast out, Pharaoh’s daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son.

No One has Seen God

No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

And the Father that sent me, he hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.

John 6:46

Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he that is from God, he hath seen the Father.

1 Timothy 6:15-16

Which in its own times he shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen.

Issue

Has God been seen or not? Does this mean God is material?
