When you see a rainbow….
I’ve always loved rainbows. When they appear it is always a beautiful surprise, sometimes there is just a portion, sometimes, it is a full bow in the sky, like the one in this picture, which I could only capture a portion of on my iPhone camera. Rainbows always remind me of God’s promise to Noah, but also remind me of the One enthroned in the heavens, coming again some day with great power, glory, might and salvation, our Lord Jesus.
“And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.” Genesis 9:12-13
“Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking.” Ez 1:28
“Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head, and his face was like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire.” Rev. 4:3
“And he who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian, and around the throne was a rainbow that had the appearance of an emerald.” Rev. 4:3
