My blog post today may not be what you’re expecting. Just a head’s up.
I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Genesis 9:13
In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Acts 2:17
It was a simple dream.
I was standing
in next to Jesus looking down as He purposely set His foot in the sand.
As I watched His foot make an impression I remember I started thinking about that poem “Footprints in the Sand” but my thinking was abruptly halted as a powerful radiant rainbow aura of color expanded out around His entire foot.
Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking. Eze 1:28
I remember being impressed simply and quickly that Jesus was not just a man who’s foot makes an impression in the sand, but that everything touched by the impression of God is changed with His power. Shaken with the power of God.
A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. Revelation 4:3
Even a simple footprint of God is imbued with the power of God. And not just the footprint, but the sand and the world around it like the ripple effect of a pebble being dropped into water.
He reveals deep and hidden things…Daniel 2:22
I remember a short burst of peace.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
And then I woke up.
Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”
Jesus, I’m not sure why I had that dream, but I know it was from You. It was a beautiful dream. A peaceful dream. A powerful dream. I thank You that the rainbow and the power belongs to You and no one can snatch it away from You no matter how hard…in their pride…. they try to wrestle it from You. We love because You first loved us, Lord. May the power of God reach more and more people with the Truth about You and Your life, sanctifying work on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins, and Your resurrection 3 days later. May all who read believe, In Jesus’ name, Amen.
