Photo of the Day: Magnificent rainbow in First District

Motorists traversing the soon to be renamed Francis Drake Highway pulled over in their vehicles while persons gathered on their porches or near windows to observe, photograph and marvel at a magnificent and clearly defined rainbow in West End in the First District this morning, September 21, 2021.

The colourful bow was thought to be positioned in the Towers/Romney Park area.

In Christianity, the rainbow is a sign of grace and a promise made by God to never flood the entire earth again.

The Promise


“This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh”- Genesis 9: 12-15 (NKJV).

Grace


Bible scholar John Gill states concerning the rainbow, “as it has in it a variety of beautiful colours, it may represent Christ, who is full of grace and truth, and fairer than the children of men; and may be considered as a symbol of peace and reconciliation by him, whom God looks unto, and remembers the covenant of his grace he has made with him and his chosen ones in him; and who is the rainbow round about the throne of God, and the way of access unto it.”

The colours of the rainbow are also used on a flag for the gay and lesbian movement.
