My little cyber-space series on Colors Used in Scripture is wrapping up with this post. When I started this series, I was excited and had no idea why color or where I was going with it. As I dug into research, I prayed about what I felt the Lord leading me to do because with the amount of information already available it seemed redundant and overwhelming.
For whoever may eventually read what I’ve written or even if it’s just for myself, with studying colors used in Scripture I now understand the holiness of God better – which is a request I’ve prayed on for a while.
Wanting to understand the Lord’s holiness better started with a class that I took on the tabernacle a couple of years ago – you can check it out here The Tabernacle (2019-2020) – WOW! – Lake Havasu City (wowlhc.com). Talk about a study that can be overwhelming, especially in color! It left me craving more understanding as to how it applies today.
“Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of Lights, with whom
there is no variation or shadow due to change.”
James 1:17 keeps going off in my head – hammering home to me that the patterns and order that God established in every part of creation – including color – has never changed. But isn’t it interesting how they can be mixed? Check out this Color Blender tool Color Blender (meyerweb.com) which can show all kinds of in-betweens in color. And this is a great website on which to discover more Colors in Scripture (biblenews1.com).
The black and white of it all is growing closer to God by getting a better understanding of His ways. He is a Lord of order, and by understanding the priorities He has set for color helps to bring that into view. The black and white of it all is God’s Word.
“The sum of your word is truth,
and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.”
