This morning, as I was driving into work, while praying the Sorrowful Mystery’s of the rosary, I noticed a very faint rainbow peeking out through the storm clouds that were starting to dissipate. It was not very bold nor big. IT was just bright enough coming over the mountain, peaking through the storm clouds that were passing by. I continued to ponder and pray the rosary but with much less sorrow and much greater joy.
As I came around the pass through the mountain, to the other side I was able to capture the other side of the full rainbow. Both ends appeared but the center was not viable. I began to smile while praying, coming to understand the magnitude of our Lords suffering and sacrifice. Never again, shall another soul do what our Lord has done for all creation. Never again, I pondered as I see the very faint other side of the rainbow. As horrific and painful His suffering were, it was for us for all time.
Rather then destroying the earth and all creatures because of our wickedness and sins, our Lord destroyed our sins and our wickedness therefore conquering death for all time. Never again can another soul accomplish this as “It is Finished”. “The New Covenant.”
I don’t believe for a second that rainbow was very as faint it was for any other reason then, as faith is, some can see it and some are to preoccupied to see it. You didn’t have to look for it but you had to notice it. Once you notice it, you can’t take your eyes off it. It’s far to magnificent to do so.
Then seeing the other end of the rainbow, I was overtaken by: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” Revelation 22:13
Although the middle could not be seen, you know it is there.
“God said to Noah and to his sons with him: See, I am now establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you and with every living creature that was with you: the birds, the tame animals, and all the wild animals that were with you—all that came out of the ark. I will establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all creatures be destroyed by the waters of a flood; there shall not be another flood to devastate the earth. God said: This is the sign of the covenant that I am making between me and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I set my bow in the clouds to serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth, and the bow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and every living creature—every mortal being—so that the waters will never again become a flood to destroy every mortal being. When the bow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature—every mortal being that is on earth. God told Noah: This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and every mortal being that is on earth.” Genesis 9 8:17
