In Greek mythology, Iris, goddess of the rainbow sent messages from heaven to earth. Rainbows are more than a spectacular mix of colors painted after the rains. Rainbows are God speaking to us, yes, God is reminding us of His promise made to us so long ago. Many are familiar with the biblical story of Noah and the Ark. We are told that God made it rain 150 days and 150 nights there by flooding the whole earth and in doing so all living things would perish in the flood. After this God spoke to Noah and told him of the Rainbow,and then God placed the Rainbow in the sky as a promise to never to flood the earth again.
Today when we behold this marvel in the sky called Rainbow, God is speaking to us and He shows us again His enormous love and beauty, in the Rainbow.
The scientific explanation for Rainbows:
Rainbows are the result of sunlight bending through raindrops. This bending, called refraction, occurs when light passes through the water in the air.
What scientist cannot explain:
It is physically impossible to walk under a Rainbow.
Rainbows literally exist only in the eyes of the observer.
God speaks to us individually and universally and His promise–Rainbow
is too wonderful even for words.
