New American Standard Version of the Bible"...and the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass."  Revelation 21:21  (NAS)

Have you ever seen pure gold that was like transparent glass?

The light for the city:

New American Standard Version of the BibleAnd I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God, the Almighty, and the Lamb, are its temple. 23And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine upon it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24And the nations shall walk by its light, and the kings of the earth shall bring their glory into it. Revelation 21:22-24 (NAS)

In this city that represented the bride of Christ (the church), there was no longer any need for the sun or moon to shine.  Its light is the glory of God...and its lamp is the Lamb of God.  This is consistent with the following scriptures:

New American Standard Version of the BibleIn the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. John 1:1-4 (NAS)

Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life." John 8:12(NAS)

"I have come as light into the world, that everyone who believes in Me may not remain in darkness. 47"And if anyone hears My sayings, and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 48"He who rejects Me, and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day. John 12:46-48 (NAS)

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9 (NAS)

And this is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. I John 1:5 (NAS)

The followers of God and Christ (the bride) - presented in all her glory:

New American Standard Version of the Bible"...that He (Jesus) might sanctify her (the church), having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she should be holy and blameless."  Eph 5:26-27  (NAS)

"Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.  Jude 1:24-25  (NAS)

"Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood."  Acts 20:28 (NAS)

If you were a Christian facing great persecution, how important would it be to you to know that Christ, through the blood that He shed on the cross, would be able to present you blameless and without blemish...and that you would be so wonderfully adorned in His presence?
