What is the Color of Salvation?
What do you think of the title for this morning’s study, “What is the Color of Salvation?” This is not a trick title to get your interest. We are really going to discover the color of salvation. We will also find out what our Heavenly Father’s favorite color is. For that matter, what Jesus’ color is, —and the color of the Holy Spirit.
“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2Cor. 4:6
As I prepared this study, this text became very special to me. As I was researching, this text would keep coming to my attention, so I will share it with you in the hope that you too will learn and apply it to your life, —as I have.
The more I studied into the rainbow around Jesus’ head, the more I realized that my spiritual vision, to a great extent, was black-and-white. And if there is one thing I have learned, it is that Jesus does not want us to look at salvation, the holy covenant He has made with us, in black-and-white. He has provided the Gospel Message in living color. He made us to see color, physically, for the specific reason that we would understand the meaning of color spiritually.
Let’s take a poll. How many would say that blue is the color of salvation? How many would say that red is the color of salvation? But how about green, orange, or yellow? Is it a single color, or is salvation a set of colors? And that is exactly why we are going to have fun studying the meaning of the rainbow around the head of Jesus.
“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire.” Revelation 10:1
As I was studying this verse one day, six questions came to mind, and as I continued to study I saw that the answers were rich with meaning and helped to establish the meaning of the rainbow around Jesus’ head.
It says in Jeremiah 33:3; “Call unto Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” (NIV)
