Introduction:What is a rainbow? Donald Ahrens describes a rainbow as "one of the most spectacular light shows observed on earth". A rainbow is a spectrum of light or colors that is in the sky caused by the reflection of the sun's rays in drops of rain or moisture. You will see a rainbow in the sky opposite of the sun. You may also see a rainbow near waterfalls or fountains due to the light reflecting off of it. Every color symbolizes something different both spiritually and how we feel.

  • 01

    Red

    Red is the color on the top of a rainbow. The color red gives us energy, enthusiasm, passion and security. For Christians, the red resembles the blood and God's sacrifice to save us from our sins and give us eternal life.

  • 02

    Yellow

    Yellow is the third color on a rainbow. Yellow resembles wisdom. Yellow, just like the yellow sun, gives us energy. It is said that yellow improves our mind and our memory. Spiritually, yellow resembles divine nature, glory and the perfection of God.

  • 03

    Green

    Green is the fourth color that you will see on a rainbow. Green is halfway between the top of the rainbow which is red and the bottom of the rainbow which is violet. It resembles life, balance, harmony and nature. We can see the green more than any other color of the rainbow. Spiritually, green resembles nature, eternity and prosperity. The color green in the rainbow also resembles a new beginning and a new life.

  • 04

    Blue

    Blue is the fifth color on a rainbow. The color blue resembles spirituality. It resembles the color of the oceans, sky and heaven. This color gives us peace and understanding. The color blue calms and relaxes us just like the sound of oceans. Spiritually, the bible describes the color blue as heavenly.

  • 05

    Violet

    Violet is the seventh or last color of the rainbow. The rainbow's violet color resembles the love for humanity, wisdom and royalty. Violet is at the opposite end of the rainbow of the color red. Violet is the combination of the colors red and blue.




Final Thoughts

There are seven colors in a rainbow spectrum. The seven colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. An easy way to remember the colors of the rainbow is to remember Roy G. Biv.

You will see rainbows displayed in many places other than just seeing one or even a double one in the sky. Rainbows are part of the gay community and has been since the 1970's. Their flag has the rainbow colors in them.

Rainbow colors have been known to have a tendency of cheering people out. The colors tend to give people energy and helps liven up their mood.

If you are a religious person, you may remember reading about rainbows in the bible. A rainbow resembles God's forgiveness. The rainbow colors also resembles God's power and glory. The seven colors of a rainbow also resembles the number of days that God created the heavens and the earth. Knowing what a rainbow means to a Christian, gives a Christian even more beautiful delight, happiness and meaning when we see a rainbow in the sky. The next time you see a rainbow, think about God's forgiveness and His love to us as His chosen children.
