The “Full Circle” phenomenon has been mentioned in the Bible twice only: Ezekiel 1:28 and revelation 4:3 which include the “full circle of the rainbow” of God’s glory. The day we come face to face with God, we shall begin to understand the full circle of His glory, His kindness to man, His love & wisdom.
We only see a part rainbow occasionally. God sees it continually. Rainbow had a special significance to Noah’s descendants, that the rain would never be again become an earth-engulfing flood. We know that it is the sun that shines through the rain which paints the beauty of the rainbow. To Noah’s descendants, they would never case to rejoice & praise God for the promise of the rainbow . . . and that then was not even a “Full Circular Rainbow”.
Spiritually, we also know that “when a person consciously sees the smile & love of God in the midst of present trouble that the the true glory & beauty of Christian life is revealed to the world around.”
My wife & I together with 13 others, after a dedication service, had the privilege of witnessing the “full circle of the rainbow” phenomenon on Perth Hill on Sunday, 28 September 1997 at 8.00 am.
Now, on a less serious note, it’s my pleasure to share with you some of the glorious sights of rainbow occurrences around the world. These are God’s gifts to feast your eyes. They are semicircular rainbows – still a rare sight to behold with some of them having a fainter secondary rainbow.
