The Colors of Heaven

(NKJV) Revelation 4:3 And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and [there was] a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.

In Revelation 4 John has a hard time trying to put into words what he saw. God looking like precious stones? A rainbow enveloping Him?? An emerald rainbow?!? My mind kind of over heats a little just trying to comprehend what picture John could have been trying to convey when he wrote that. What a creative God!

I’ve heard it said that there are even new colors in heaven, ones that we haven’t even comprehended here on earth!! That’s when my mind begins to go into overdrive! With 3 primary colors we can make any color we want, the choices of shades and tints are almost infinite…right?? So how is it that there are colors that we haven’t yet seen on earth?? Wow.

Stemming from these ideas, I did a prophetic piece in about half an hour in the prayer room today. I wanted to convey the mystery and saturation that the colors of heaven would evoke. Since I can’t really color with heaven’s colored pencils (yet), I conceded and used earthly colors 😉

It’s a little messy, as is my style but I hope it spurs your imagination to dream in the colors of heaven tonight!
