The Answer :

I saw one like the Son of Man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash across his chest. His head and his hair were white as white wool, white as snow; his eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of many waters.

But he placed his right hand on me, saying, ‘Do not be afraid.’

-from the Apocalypse of St. John
