The Rainbow and the 4th of July
We have been saying for years that we Christians and patriots need to reclaim things that have been taken from us over the years—indeed, over the decades, centuries, millennia.
“Things” includes words and their proper usage. For look about us now and notice how the fulfillment of the prophecy of God through Isaiah (ca. 800 B.C.) is staring us right in the face.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
The examples are now so numerous that only the dullest of citizens, or those with an ostrich attitude (head in the sand) would be unable to give an example.
“Things” which we also need to reclaim are the colors of God’s creation. We must confess that some decades ago, when the fake news media, the BM, as we correctly call them (Babylonian Media), when they began color-coding their national maps at election times and labeled the Leftist states blue, and the conservative (middle of the spectrum) states as red, we were a bit miffed.
Why? Because for a very long time, red has been the color of the communists, the collectivists, going all the way back to Esau-Edom in the Bible, as we have traced in many of the lectures in our series, Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom.
But we are no longer miffed, because it occurred to us that we must reclaim all of God’s colors, including red. By the way, have you ever heard of “the lavender lobby?”
As we understand it—and we could be wrong—the “L” is for “Lesbian,” and somehow it also got adopted by the effeminate males and thus they took lavender for one of “their” colors.
In our own small ways, we are doing our part to reclaim everything for Jesus and His Kingdom; we are not “reclaiming” the perversions of His creation, but the truth of His creation. Therefore, when we needed a new golf-style shirt or two a few years ago, we found a nice blue one and another in the same style that was a lovely shade of lavender.
We wear it with pride (assuming our readers get the pun with the correct use of the word “pride.”
Speaking of colors, many years ago, we encouraged Christians to reclaim the rainbow. We used it as the cover art for our six albums in the Covenants of the Bible series. It looks like this:
Do you notice that there are seven distinct colors. For many years prior to the current generation, many of us school kids had a mnemonic to help us remember them in order. It was the ROY G. BIV mnemonic. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.
Nowadays, everywhere one looks in the “woke” culture, one sees the perversion of the sign of God’s covenant with all humanity.
Genesis 9:13 I do set my [rain] bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth
In the woke rainbow, there are six colors. I have never to this day seen one with seven colors in the “rainbow” flag, trinkets, etc. If I would ever see one, I would say that person did not get the memo from woke headquarters.
Even the famous NBC logo of the peacock has for decades pushed that bird’s plumage into our consciousness with six colors.
About a week ago, we saw one of several versions of a new advertisement being shown on Newsmax TV. When we first heard it we were delighted as it was calling for “believers” to “reclaim the rainbow.”
However, after seeing it a couple more times, and different versions of it, we noticed that while the generic “God” is mentioned a few times, that Jesus is not mentioned. That was when our antennae went up. Still later, we saw that some rabbi is one of the persons behind this organization.
No, thanks, and caveat emptor. (Let the buyer beware.)
2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
Now, as we conclude this little treatise on our reclamation projects, we were sent this amazing photo early yesterday.
We were given the person’s name who is alleged to have snapped this photo, but we shall not reveal that at this time.
The dear friend who sent it to us added that “(name withheld) took this picture at 30,000 feet altitude. It looks like a portal to the next heaven.”
We were stunned by the beauty of it! But… is it real?
We immediately went into critical thinking mode (as we all should), and here are some of the questions we are seeking the answers to:
* Who is the individual who is alleged to have taken it?
* Where did you find that picture? Online, emailed to you?
* 30,000 feet is the normal altitude for jetliners in the continental USA. Did (name withheld) take that picture from his seat on a commercial jet?
* When did that occur?
* Over what state, or where was the jet located?
* Most importantly, was the picture created with Photoshop? (Implying that it is fake…)
Our friend responded that it was sent to our friend by a cousin who flies extensively, but whether she (the cousin) was on the flight is unknown. That’s all we know at this time, but we thought it was such an utterly staggering and magnificent picture, that we wanted to share it with you all ASAP. We have seen double rainbows on a number of occasions, and the faint portion of a triple rainbow once, but we have never seen anything like this!
We would not doubt that it could be real, because jets fly above the clouds. It would be interesting to check with pilots to see if they have ever encountered one. If we do find out it was faked, we shall report that to you. We have not cropped or modified it in any way.
Even if it turns out to be someone’s handiwork with Photoshop (or similar creative photography tools), it is inspiring and makes me want to praise the Lord Jesus Christ who created all things. Let us reclaim the world for Jesus as we remember our blessings, especially tomorrow, the 4th of July!
