The Upside Down Rainbow illustrated by Ava
I was looking into the sky the other day and I thought wow, this rainbow is really upside down isn’t it. Now I obviously know that the rainbow above the ground is seen as a hallo, but now I am seeing it below the ground from here in Arizona.
People say there’s nothing magically about rainbows, it’s all science.
Since when did science stop becoming the amazement factor and why does anyone ever consider this a point to take away from God as our creator? The science behind how God made things has always been there, we are the ones discovering it, not creating it.
This got me thinking about the symbolism of the upside-down rainbow.
The word Rainbow appears only 6 times in the Bible.
3 times it’s mentioned in the first book of the Bible Genesis chapter 9
Ezekiel was a prophet whose time overlapped with Daniel & Jeremiah. He has a vision of the throne of God, this is actually how God inaugurated him into the office of prophet, he sees Jesus, “Above the vault over their heads was what looked like a throne of lapis lazuli, and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a man. I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him. Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord.” That’s in Ezekiel Chapter 1. You might want to go read it and try to picture what he saw.
Then the rainbow is introduced once again in the Book of Revelations, this same throne is described in Revelations 4:3, “And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne.”
I’ve heard Christian mythological explanations of the rainbow that were cool visuals.
One story says If God were pulling back on an arrow in his wrath, the rainbow is a reminder that after the flood of all mankind except for Noah and his family, God placed the arch of the rainbow in the sky, to point towards heaven, he did not pull the bow towards people, rather himself. This was a promise to us, and that’s what we usually see is this beautiful rainbow,
Jesus comes and takes that wrath right!
Now check it out, here we see him in the End of the book clothed in this rainbow!
Revelations 10:1, “Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars.
The rainbow is a promise in the beginning, and a fulfilled promise in the end! How awesome is that.
I think the symbolism of this upside-down rainbow, which is actually our ability to see the halo affect of the rainbow is just how close we are getting to see Jesus.
It made me think that the bow has turned back around? That his wrath has once again flipped. This time we read that the earth will not be destroyed by a flood again,
2 Peter 3:10 ”But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.”
This sounds like a very bad nuclear war, asteroids, or volcanos, it could be many disastrous things but listen, for those who accept Christ
1 Thessalonians 5:9 “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Years ago I had a vision that rainbows started popping up all over in the sky and I knew in my spirit that it was time, Jesus was about to return, the time was finally up. My spirit leap with joy knowing he was going to return. The time is getting closer my friends.
If you haven’t met the rainbow maker, you can do that right where you are in this very moment.
Dear Jesus, I accept you as my savior, you are the rainbow maker. I’m so glad science is able to explain to me your wonderous ways. Help me not to doubt you. Bring me signs and strengthen my faith. In Jesus name, Amen.
