Whether it be an Old Testament vision of God's throne room (Isaiah 6:1): a small gathering on the Mount of Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-8); an Apostle in the Spirit on the Lord's day (Revelation 1:10); or a day when every eye will see Him (Revelation 1:7); Jesus will appear as He was before creation (John 17:5), and as He has appeared ever since His Ascension (Acts 1:9):  in all the Glory that belongs to our Great God and Savior, Jesus, the Christ (Titus 3:4)!

Isaiah 6:1  "In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple."

Matthew 17:2  "And (He) was transfigured before them: and His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light."

Revelation 1:13-16  "And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.  His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; and His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters.  And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength."

Revelation 19:11-16  "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war.  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.  And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.  And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.  And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS."

Sculptors and painters are incapable of rendering anything close to His glory!
