Dark clouds surround him. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
For thick clouds swirl about him, and he cannot see us. He is way up there, walking on the vault of heaven.’
As the people stood in the distance, Moses approached the dark cloud where God was.
1 Timothy 6 16
He alone can never die, and he lives in light so brilliant that no human can approach him. No human eye has ever seen him, nor ever will. All honor and power to him forever! Amen.
No one else may come with you. In fact, no one is to appear anywhere on the mountain. Do not even let the flocks or herds graze near the mountain.”
1 Kings 8 12
Then Solomon prayed,“ O Lord, you have said that you would live in a thick cloud of darkness.
But you may not look directly at my face, for no one may see me and live.”The Lord continued,“ Look, stand near me on this rock.As my glorious presence passes by, I will hide you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by.Then I will remove my hand and let you see me from behind. But my face will not be seen.”
I see God moving across the deserts from Edom, the Holy One coming from Mount Paran. His brilliant splendor fills the heavens, and the earth is filled with his praise.His coming is as brilliant as the sunrise. Rays of light flash from his hands, where his awesome power is hidden.Pestilence marches before him; plague follows close behind.
