Guy photographs end of the rainbow

The UK Mirror published this one earlier in July, and made me laugh with delight:

There have been a lot of rainbows lately at the Arctic Circle. reports today, "For the past couple of months, sky watchers above the Arctic Circle say they've had trouble seeing the Northern Lights. What's the problem? Apparently, rainbows are getting in the way:

"This bright and beautiful rainbow appeared last night around 00:15 am," says photographer Therese van Nieuwenhoven of Laukvik, Norway. "It was caused by the midnight sun shining into a rain shower." Normally, midnight is the time for the aurora borealis, but with the Arctic summer sun on one side of the sky and rainbows on the other, Northern Lights don't stand a chance. This is how it will be until the sun sets in August."

Beautiful, aren't they!? The rainbow is a covenant and a promise from God to His people. In Genesis 9, God said to Noah after the Flood,

"God said, "This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations; I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth. "It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh." (Genesis 9:12-15)

When you see beautiful things like these rainbows and other natural delights, remember that God created all the world and He will renew it for His people after the Tribulation. It will be beautiful beyond imagining. Also remember that His promises are true and perfect. He will return for us, that promise is also sure ... He is sitting inside a rainbow right now: "And He who was sitting was like a jasper stone and a sardius in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, like an emerald in appearance." (Rev 4:3)

"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse." (Romans 1:20) His wonders to behold!
