I'm beginning to suspect that what Peter, James and John saw upon Jesus that day on the mount of transfiguration (Matthew 17) was there all along. Their eyes had been veiled from seeing it until that moment when, in God's sovereignty, the veil was removed so that a very few could see something of the fullness of His glory. Probably the angels always saw Him that way even while He was on earth. Have you ever noticed how babies seem to see with a different kind of eyes from ours as adults? They seem to see light or colors around people or places that we can't. At that age their eyes are not yet fully veiled by a more advanced stage of sinfulness. Which leads me also to suspect that there is a certain outraying of glory even around God's people on earth that our eyes are veiled from seeing, since they are the bearers of His infinite Presence spilling out to the world around them. It may not quite compare to what the disciples saw on the mount because that was the Only Begotten, but we forget that the Spirit of Almighty God dwells within us and overflows from us! In the day to day that is just too glorious to accurately behold and still be able to function. It could be said that, for the time being, we need for our vision to be veiled so as not to be completely blown away.
