The photo above is of a rainbow in the sky above the Dead Sea in Israel and was taken on November 23, 2010 at around 2:00 pm Israel time. Notice the treetops at the bottom right.
According to the Book of Genesis, chapter nine, the Rainbow appeared in the sky after the flood as a sign of God’s covenant–His promise that never again will He destroy the whole earth by the waters of a flood.
Another rainbow was described in the first chapter of Ezekiel as being around the throne of God, and in the Book of Revelation, chapter 10 and verse 1, we are told that a rainbow appeared above the head of a mighty angel that came down from heaven.
Most of the rainbows that I have seen start at the horizon-line, arching upward in bands of color and stretching halfway across the sky. I can only recall seeing one that arched from horizon-line to horizon-line.
Yet none of these rainbows touched the horizon-line, and all three photos were taken on the same day on the banks of the Dead Sea during my friend Dana's recent visit to Israel. All three photos were taken on November 23, 2010 around 2:00 pm Israel time, and the one called "rainbow angel" reminds me of what is described in Ezekiel, chapter one.
Apparently, photos of rainbows like these from ground level are very rare, and I can't help wondering. Are these photos a sort of sign of the end time?
