1. The glory of the Lord is like a consuming fire.
"And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel"
2. The glory of the Lord is like a pillar of fire that radiates light.
"And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people" (Exodus 13:21-22).
3. The glory of the Lord is like a fiery furnace.
"For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest.... For our God is a consuming fire" (Hebrews 12:18, 29).
4. The glory of the Lord is like a light that radiates splendor, a light that is so full of splendor that Peter called it "the excellent glory."
"For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased" (2 Peter 1:17).
5. The glory of the Lord is a light so glorious and brilliant that there is no need for a sun.
"Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.... And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof" (Rev. 21:11, 23).
6. The glory of the Lord is a light so brilliant that no man can approach it.
"Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting" (1 Tim. 6:16).
