The quality of fame won by deeds, not quite the same as renown. Glory is the quality of the ‘rush' won from victory, and as such was highly valued as a motivator by warriors and equally scorned by the church. Warriors and knights considered glory a good thing, one that drove men to greatness, a reward for excellence that was the right of the successful warrior. The church viewed glory as a force that drove men to recklessness, to vainglory, to excess.
When Moses asked God to show him His glory, God took Him back into the mountain and caused all His goodness to pass before him (Ex. 33:17-23). The remarkable effect on Moses was seen in his shining countenance for a long time thereafter. The concept of "Glory in the Church" beautifully portrays the manifest presence of Christ among His people in revival. Consider the delightful expressions that have been used to portray this aspect of revival: "Glory Filled the Land," "A Gracious Manifestation of God's Glory," "They Saw His Glory," and "The Whole Earth Was Filled with His Glory." Such expressions most certainly excite the believing heart to desire and expect the repetition of such "Glory Days" once again.
The divine splendor of God, or a specific manifestation of God's presence frequently likened to a cloud, smoke, or brilliant light. To serve and worship God is to glorify Him. Through the Holy Spirit, Christians are being changed to be like God and to reflect His glory. (See Ex. 19:9, 16-18; Is. 60:1; Luke 2:9; Rom. 8:16 18; 2 Cor. 3:18; 4:6.) See also SHEKINAH.
Glory is a fictional character from the comic book series created by Rob Liefeld. The character's full name is Gloriana Demeter, a half-Amazon, half-Demon warrior. The character was clearly meant to be a version of Wonder Woman in the Image universe, especially given the ties to mythology.
The circle of radiant light around the head or figures of God, Christ, the Virgin Mary, or a saint. When it surrounds the head only, it is called a halo or nimbus, when it surrounds the entire figure with a large oval it is called a mandorla (the Italian word for almond). It indicates divinity or holiness, though originally was placed around the heads of kings and gods as a mark of distinction.
An optical effect characterized by concentric rings of color (red outermost and violet innermost) surrounding the shadow of an observer's head when the shadow is cast onto a cloud deck below the observer's elevation (see Brocken specter).
A glory is an optical phenomenon produced by light backscattered (a combination of diffraction, reflection and refraction) towards its source by a cloud of uniformly-sized water droplets. A glory has multiple colored rings. The angular size is much smaller than a rainbow, about 5Â° to 20Â°, depending on the size of the droplets.
Glory is a KMFDM single from their album Angst. It contains three remixes of the title track "Glory" (as well as the version from Angst), plus remixes of the tracks "Lust" (by Chemlab) and "Move On", both originally from Angst. There is also a rough mix of "Trust" which would become a song on their album Nihil.
Glory is a 1989 drama based on the history of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Regiment during the American Civil War. The 54th was one of the first formal units of the U.S. Army to be made up entirely of African Americans (apart from the officers).
The Chinese Elm U. parvifolia cultivar Glory is one of the early American selections, best known for its winter hardiness. In trials at Holt, Missouri, by the Arborvillage nursery, it was found to be cold-hardy to - 29 deg. Celsius.
