A rainbow circle ...
It never ceases to astound me while reading God's Word suddenly
something stands out and jumps at you.
That is exactly what happened when I read Revelation 4.
The disciple John gives us a little peek into his ultimate experience.
To observe God's breath-taking mastery leaves me panting for more.
After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven,
and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking
with me, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place
after these things." Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne
was standing in heaven, and One sitting on the throne. And He who was
sitting was like a jasper stone and a sardius in appearance; and there was
a rainbow around the throne, like an emerald in appearance.
The words painted an amazing picture on the canvas of my mind.
Take this in ... the throne was standing in heaven! To me, it's suspended
midair with no foundation for support. It is simply a free-floating supernatural
phenomenon in the heavens. And upon the throne sat the One true King with
indescribable jewels not known to mankind. Then lastly, we are shown through
the eyes' lens the picture of the rainbow encircling the throne of God. That's
a spectacular sight!
The artistry of the Master Architect is spell-bounding!
Not long ago I witnessed a ring around a bright light here in Florida. It was
strange because I've never seen such a sight. The brightness was blinding
so you couldn't really gaze at it directly. A short time later my curiosity got
the better of me, and I glanced at it again. Lo and behold the sight left me
breathless. There was a perfect rainbow circle from the center of that
illuminating light. I was mystified while shouting out to my family to take
a look. We could not understand how in the heavens, there could be a
circular rainbow. We were awe struck to observe a rainbow halo that
completely circled the sun above our house.
Yes, of course, we've seen a double rainbow many times but now a rainbow ring?
How could that be? We didn't say anything because we felt no one would believe
us. A few days later we found out that a sun halo does occur in Florida.
O.K. that's all well and good but does it have a rainbow on it? I dared not ask!
(The exact date of that sight was on Monday 6/04/12 around 1:40 P.M.)
Truthfully I have no clue if anyone, in this particular area saw the ring with the
rainbow. Up to this present date I still don't know.
Now back to that beautiful scene ... the blinding light surrounded by a perfect
rainbow. I was giddish with child-like giggles, and if my body allowed me to
jump up and down I would have.
That awesome sight is just a glimpse of the true beauty of what is yet to be
revealed. We will be enthralled beyond belief witnessing the radiant central
light of the Lord on His throne. The Majesty of His throne will entail the perfect
rainbow circle around it exhibiting His Divine glory! WOW! It's beyond belief!
Sovereign Lord, to behold Your beauty ... there are no words on earth to describe it.
Heaven's realm contains the adequate words in which to portray the essence of You.
Thank You Lord for sprinkling my existence with minute specks of a future in Paradise.
Jesus You are worthy to be honored, glorified and praised forever. Amen.
"Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the
splendor of his holiness" Psalm 29:2
