Colours in the Bible

.....and their meaning...

 

Can you imagine a world without colour? Just imagine for a few moments:

The beauty of the rose
The wonderful colours of the Peacock's feathers
The thrill of a breathtaking sunset
The unfolding of God's carpets of green
The jewelled elegance of the snow flake
The glittering descent of a sparkling waterfall
The tranquillity of a peaceful sea, lapping its relaxed waves upon a Palm covered tropical Island

All these wonders of God's glorious creation would lose so much of their appeal were it not for the miracle of colour.

Have you ever thought about how that from early childhood, God indelibly impresses colour on our mind, through these wonders of His creation? The world of colour is not without purpose; in fact God has designed it so that if we should desire, we might have a foundation to learn and grow in the knowledge of Him.

This is the reason for the colours of the spectrum, in the rainbow; the curtains of the tabernacle; gem stones on the High Priests clothing; and the pillars of the New Jerusalem, to name only a few. They all teach spiritual lessons!

So lets look at the subject of colours which can help build knowledge, love and reverence of the One who has given His only begotten Son that we might find salvation.
