God’s Promise

Rainbow over Culpeper, Va

Rainbows are special don’t you agree? They just amaze me. Did you know that rainbows contain a continuum of around 1 million colors that are indistinguishable with the human eye. Instead, we can only really see seven color hues: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. I am just in awe when I see one as I generally stop what I am do gett ing and just watch them as they develop. The weather is pretty interesting during rainbows. Sometimes I feel a light mist, or the air is gently moving about me. Sometimes the sky is darker then normal which makes the rainbow standout. The location can also add drama to a rainbow. I am so impressed with rainbows, I remember what I was doing when the rainbow appeared. When I saw the rainbow above, I ran out of my townhome and up the street to capture it.


The rainbow is the “token” of God’s everlasting covenant that there shall be no more a flood to destroy the earth. The rainbow is also the token of God’s everlasting covenant in Christ—the New Covenant. Genesis 9:16; Malachi 4:2; Isaiah 44:22; 45:8; Ezekiel 1:28; Revelation 4:3. MEDM September 16, 1908, page 745.1.5

The rainbow of promise encircling the throne on high is an everlasting testimony that “God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). It testifies to the universe that God will never forsake His people in their struggle with evil! Desire of Ages, EGW

How do you feel when you see God’s Promise?
