Overcome by a Rainbow

rainbow and the throne

I can’t help myself. I have to explore the glorious rainbow a little further. I stumbled across a video on YouTube that left me speechless. The man’s reaction in the video is… contagious. His unbridled emotions upon seeing, or better yet, EXPERIENCING a double rainbow has moved me so deeply that I have to extend this topic. PLEASE take the time to watch this 3 minute video and ask yourself if you’ve ever been so completely overwhelmed by God’s creation. I think the only time I’ve ever came this close was with the birth of a child.

Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQSNhk5ICTI

Did you notice his question? While overcome with the majesty of God’s bow, he kept repeating, “What does it mean?” This man realizes that this rainbow was placed in the heavens just for him. He is humbled and awed to TEARS. The wonderment he experiences overcomes him completely.

While I couldn’t see this double bow in all its vividness and glory due to the camera’s limitations, this man’s response was so passionate — so worshipful – that tears poured down my face as well. While my research has deeply affected my thoughts on rainbows, this man’s response will forever be etched into my soul.

We know what the rainbow “means”. It is the sign of YHWH’s covenant with us. It is a picture of God’s glory, His majesty, His essence. But perhaps even more striking is that it is the closest thing on earth to standing in His presence at His throne!

What will our response be when we stand in His presence? I think it will be similar to this man’s reaction to the rainbow — with one exception. Our response will be far more exuberant — wow. Even those that never knew the King of Glory in this life will buckle to the ground in awe and adoration. And they will be pierced through with what it all “means” and will also be screaming, “OH MY GOD!”

I’ll post more on the rainbow soon, but I couldn’t wait to share this little piece. Since this video has about 37 million views, you may have watched it in the past. I urge you to “see” it again and be moved by the enormity of love found in the covenant YHWH has made with us.
