DAILY?READINGS: Gen. 50:1-26; Psalm 30:1-12; Matt. 27:27-44

The King of kings and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. 1 Timothy 6:15-16

In our present, weak, and mortal state we cannot, nor can the angels, bear the brilliance of the King of Kings. Angelic beings must employ two of their six wings to cover their faces, as they encircle the glory-filled throne, praising, and adoring the King of kings. Their God, and ours, is light and clothes Himself in light. We enjoy the sight by faith today, and will do so in reality throughout eternity when we are at home with the Lord. —Arnot P. McIntee

Only faintly now I see Him, with a darkling veil between;
But a blessed day is coming, when His glory shall be seen. —C. E. Breck
