Reversionism refers to rejection of God's solution. For the unbeliever, it is rejection of the Gospel, and for the believer it is refusal to Rebound. The reversionist has turned away from God's solution and is on the way to the Sin Unto Death. Since the reversionist has rejected God's solution, God resorts to punishment to get his attention. Reversionism differs from carnality in that carnality is generally considered to be temporary, while reversionism is long term. The carnal believer can recover by Rebound. However, the reversionist is locked in negative and does not Rebound.
The colors of carnality and reversionism are shown in the diagram. Sanctification is lost as soon as a person sins. The person who sins has rejected the authority of God, which requires him to be holy (Lev 11:45). The issue is different, however, for the believer and unbeliever. All sins were paid for on the Cross, and God does not punish people for sins. The sins of the believer are forgiven at Salvation. The only unforgivable sin is rejection of Salvation. God's punishment of the unbeliever is for rejection of Salvation, not sins. God's punishment of the believer is for insubordination to the Spiritual Life. When the believer sins, his Spiritual Life ends until he Rebounds and gets back in fellowship. Sin for the believer is rejection of the work of Christ on the Cross.
When the believer sins, he immediately loses the Filling of the Holy Spirit and falls into Spiritual Death and slavery to the Cosmic System. The carnal believer in sin is subject to the punishment of God, who deals with him as a father would discipline a child who is out of line. The carnal believer who rejected the Love of God to sin will be subject to the Justice of God in Warning Punishment. "Whom the Lord Loves, He punishes" (Heb 12:6a). This is symbolized by the color violet.
If the person continues in carnality and does not Rebound, Intensified Punishment follows. This includes Scar Tissue of the Soul,2 or Hardness of the Heart, as symbolized by the color blue in place of indigo. The indigo covering is removed in Scar Tissue of the Soul and replaced with blue, for unrighteousness and self-righteousness. Scar Tissue of the Soul blocks Divine Light and subjects the person to unrighteousness (including legalism), lawlessness, and darkness. This stage is an opportunity to wander even farther from the Spiritual Life and accumulate more Divine punishment.
For those who still refuse to Rebound, the last stage of punishment is the Sin Unto Death, as symbolized by the color orange. For the unbeliever, the Sin Unto Death is for rejecting the Gospel after God has given ample time to respond. The Sin Unto Death leads to the grave. However, a period of severe suffering usually precedes death. This is symbolized by the color red, for suffering due to rejecting the Blood of Christ. The darkness of death and the grave follows.
WHITE - Sanctification (Lev 11:45)
VIOLET - Judgment, Jealousy (Rom 13:13; 1 Cor 3:3; Jas 3:14-16), rebelling against God (Deut 1:26; 9:7; 31:27; Psa 78:8; Isa 30:9; Tit 1:10), sin of Satan (Isa 14:14; Rom 2:8); idolatry (Ezek 8:3); Warning Punishment
The color violet symbolizes Divine Judgment of the one who has rejected the Love and Sanctification of God by refusing to be holy (Lev 11:45). The person who sins uses his own arrogance and jealous desires to rebel against the will of God. Jealousy is also symbolized by violet. Arrogant ambition was the sin of Satan, who said, "I will make myself like the Most High" (Isa 14:14). The color violet symbolizes Warning Punishment, which is the first stage of Divine punishment.
BLUE (Absence of Indigo) - Scar Tissue of the Soul (Isa 6:9-10; Eph 4:19; 1 Tim 4:2); Hardness of Heart (Matthew 13:13-16; Mark 4:12; Luke 8:10; John 12:40); uncircumcised heart (Lev 26:41; Jer 9:25, 26; Ezek 44:7, 9; Acts 7:51), (Deut 10:16; 30:6; Jer 4:4; Rom 2:29); Blackout of the Soul (Jer 2:5; Rom 1:21; Eph 4:17-18); controlled by OSN (Jn 8:34; Rom 6:6; 7:23; Eph 2:3; 2 Pet 2:19) - Intensified Punishment
The color blue in the absence of indigo symbolizes the unrighteousness that replaces the covering of the soul with Scar Tissue of the Soul, also called Hardness of the Heart.6 Scar Tissue of the Soul is Intensified Punishment, which is the second stage of Divine punishment. God gives the scar tissue before the person behaves with insensitivity and hardness of the heart. Scar Tissue of the Soul sets the stage for the problems symbolized by the colors for sin. Blue symbolizes the result of sin, which is unrighteousness with its self-righteousness and legalism. Blue-green symbolizes bitterness. Green symbolizes lawlessness. And yellow, for life and light, symbolizes loss of capacity for life and darkness.
Scar Tissue of the Soul opens the heart (right lobe of the soul) to darkness, which opens a conduit to fill the subconscious with garbage. Garbage in the subconscious can lead to all manner of psychiatric and physical problems. Emotional Revolt of the Soul can flood the soul. And the darkness of the right lobe (heart) can cross over into the mentality and blackout the frontal lobes (Blackout of the Soul). Scar Tissue of the Soul is like a blind spot in the soul, which allows the Old Sin Nature access to control the soul apart from the power of the individual to resist.
BLUE - Unrighteousness (Rom 1:29-32; 2:8; 6:13; 1 Cor 6:9; 1 Jn 5:17); Arrogant - Self-righteousness (Matt 23:28, 35; Rom 3:10-18), legalism (Gal 6:12-13; Phil 3:2; Col 2:16-29); malicious gossip (Prov 11:13; 20:19; 2 Cor 12:20; 2 Tim 3:3), lying (Prov 12:22; 26:28; Ezek 13:6-9; Jn 8:44; Eph 4:25; Rev 21:27), hypocrites (Matt 23:13-35; Mk 12:38-40; 2 Tim 3:5)
Blue symbolizes the unrighteousness of sin, which replaces the Righteousness of God. Rather than demonstrate the Righteousness of God (X-axis) through humility and Grace, the person may exhibit his own arrogant self-righteousness. The person may stray from Grace in legalism or become involved in malicious gossip. There may be sins of the tongue, such as lying or boasting. And the overt behavior may be that of a hypocrite.
BLUE-GREEN - Bitterness (Acts 8:23; Rom 3:14; Eph 4:31; Heb 12:15; Jas 3:14)
Blue-green symbolizes bitterness, which is a sin of rejection of God and others. Bitterness destroys love. A bitter person cannot love God or anyone else.
GREEN - Lawlessness (Rom 6:19; 2 Cor 6:14; 2 Thess 2:3; 1 Pet 2:8; 1 Jn 3:4); luxurious green tree (Deut 12:2; Job 8:13, 16; Psa 37:35; Jer 2:20; 3:6, 13; Ezek 6:13; Hos 4:13); pleasure (2 Tim 3:4; 2 Pet 2:13-14; Jas 4:1-4); RPR (2 Pet 2:20-22); fornication (Phallic Reversionism) (1 Cor 6:18; Eph 5:3; Col 3:5; Heb 13:4); Like a bush in the desert (Jer 17:5-6)
The color green symbolizes lawlessness, which characterizes the person who does as he pleases and is not restrained by the commandments of God. The Old Sin Nature is allowed to enslave the soul and there is no Rebound. The green tree may symbolize the reversionist, who is thriving in his sin in his native soil (Psa 37:35) or reveling in promiscuity (Jer 2:20). The color green may symbolize pseudo happiness and unrestrained pursuit of pleasure. It may symbolize sexual promiscuity of Phallic Reversionism and Reverse Process Reversionism in which a person turns from the Right Man or Right Woman to pursue the paramour.
Lawlessness may provide pleasure for the moment, but it will lead to intensified punishment from God. Fornication and adultery will bring intensified punishment. In the end, lawlessness will lead to weakness and loss of capacity for life and love. The lawless person will end up like a dried up bush in the desert (Jer 17:5-6).
YELLOW - Glory of the world (Jn 5:41; 1 Pet 1:24); personal glory (Jn 7:18a; 8:54; 12:43); glory is shame (Phil 3:19); loss of Capacity for Life (Heb 12:12-13); antichrist (Matt 24:5; 2 Cor 11:13-15; 1 Jn 2:18, 22; 4:3; 2 Jn 7); darkened (pseudo) light (Matt 6:23; Luk 11:34-35), Blackout of Soul; comet (Jud 13)
Yellow symbolizes the glory of the world, which passes away like a flower in the grass (1 Pet 1:24). It includes the pursuit of personal glory rather than glorifying God, the source of blessing. Worldly glory may really be shame. And the light in the person may be pseudo light (or darkness). The light of an antichrist comes from Satan or his demons. Scar Tissue of the Soul may block out divine Light and leave the person in darkness and Blackout of the Soul. The reversionist who wanders in darkness is symbolized by a comet.
ORANGE - Sin
unto Death (2 Pet 2:12; 1 Jn 5:16); evil (Rom 12:21;
Col 1:21; 3:5, 9; Heb 3:12; Jas 3:16; 3 Jn 11); demonism (1 Tim 4:1); Mammon,
love of money (Matt 6:24; Lk 16:13; 1 Ti 3:3; 6:10; 2 Pet 2:15)
a. Cast out and trodden under feet of men (Matt 5:13)
b. Chaff, which the wind drives away (Job 21:18; Ps 1:4; 35:5; Is 17:13)
c. Emotional believer with no firm root (Matt 13:5-6; 20-21)
The color orange symbolizes the Sin Unto Death, or "sin leading to death" (1 Jn 5:16). The "sin leading to death" is the last sin that the reversionist commits before God sentences the person to death. The believer is sentenced to death for failure to Rebound. The unbeliever is sentenced to death for rejection of the Gospel. Analogies of the Sin Unto Death include: Salt that is cast out and trodden under feet of men; chaff, which the wind drives away; and the emotional believer with no firm root.
The color orange also symbolizes evil, which is Satan's policy. Evil includes demonism and doctrines of demons (1 Tim 4:1). It also includes Mammon, the god of money, and the love of money.
1 Timothy 6:10-11RED - Sin (Isa 1:18), Suffering (Heb 12:12-13; 1 Pet 5:9; 2 Pet 2:13), Worry (Matt 6:25-34; 13:22; Phil 4:6; 1 Pet 5:7); Dying (Gen 2:17); Physical punishment (Heb 12:6), sickness (Phil 2:26-27; 1 Cor 11:30; Jas 5:14-15); sowing to the wind (Hos 8:7)
10 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, the trap, and many foolish and harmful lusts which plunge people into ruin and destruction. 11 For you see, the root of all sorts of evil is the love of money, which some by striving after have gone astray from doctrine and have pierced themselves with many pangs.
Red is the color for sin, suffering, worry, fear, and dying. It is the color for the Blood of Christ, which the reversionist has rejected. Rejection of the Blood of Christ means rejection of the Gospel for the unbeliever and rejection of the Spiritual Life for the believer, who fails to Rebound. Red symbolizes suffering from divine punishment (Heb 12:6). It is the color for worry and fear. It symbolizes sickness and lameness, which symbolizes the reversionist. It symbolizes the suffering in dying the Sin Unto Death, which is usually a very horrible and painful suffering that is designed to make a person hurt like he is dying. And it symbolizes the suffering of volitional responsibility in sowing to the wind and reaping the whirlwind (Hos 8:7).
BLACK - Death (1 Cor 15:56; Jas 1:15); Darkness (Matt 25:30; Jn 3:19; Eph 5:11; Phil 3:19; 2 Pet 2:17; 1 Jn 2:9-11; Jud 13)
Black symbolizes death and darkness. There are two ways to die, Dying Grace or the Sin Unto Death. The reversionist will die the Sin Unto Death.
In the days to come Jacob will take root,If the citizens obeyed Bible Doctrine, the nation would prosper, become strong, and rise above other nations. God would provide the security and bless the nation as a Royal Priest Nation (Client Nation to God). The nation would be Holy for God's own possession. It would be like a symbolic marriage between the Lord and the citizens. And the Lord would dwell among His people as He did in the Tabernacle of Israel.
Israel will blossom and bud
And fill the surface of the globe with fruit. (Isaiah 27:6)
BLACK - Death and darkness of Gentile nations (Psa 9:17; Isa 9:2; 14:4, 9; Luk 1:79)
Black symbolizes death and darkness, which characterized the Gentile nations that surrounded Client Nation Israel. The Gentile nations were ungodly.
RED - Promised Land (Deut 8:6-10; 11:8-12, 24; Josh 21:43; Jer 2:7; Ezek 17:4; 37:25; 1 Cor 3:9), for sowing (Psa 80:8; Am 9:15; 1 Cor 3:6); Palestinian Covenant (Gen 12:7; 13:15; 15:18-21; 17:8; Acts 7:5); Keeping the Law, which defined sin (Deut 28:1), required animal sacrifices (Lev 1; Heb 9:18-22) and tithing (Mal 3:10); Other nations will fear you (Deut 28:10)
The color red symbolizes the Promised Land in which the symbolic seed of the tree of the nation can be sown. God provides the boundaries of the Client Nation, as He promised Abraham in the Palestinian Covenant. God promised Abraham a great nation in the Abrahamic Covenant before Abraham even had a son. The promise was unconditional, and God kept his promise.
Red also symbolizes the childhood stage of a nation, which requires learning and obeying Bible Doctrine. For Client Nation Israel, Bible Doctrine was contained in the Law, which defined sin and required animal sacrifices, both of which are symbolized by the color red. In this first stage of national growth, other nations would fear the rising Client Nation. Fear is also symbolized by the color red.
ORANGE - Rooted
(Founded) (Psa 80:9; Isa 27:6; 37:31; Hos 14:5):
Separation from world, Promotion above other nations (Deut 28:2); Categorical
defeat of the enemy ("flee seven ways") (Deut 28:7)
a. Israel, the root of the olive tree of believers (Rom 11:15-18)
b. Jesus Christ as the root of Jesse (or David) will rule in the Millennium (Isa 11:1, 10; Rom 15:12; Rev 5:5; 22:16)
c. Egypt founded (Ex 9:18); Zion founded (Isa 14:32; 28:16); Millennial Jerusalem (Isa 54:11)
d. Foundation of the righteous (Prov 10:25)
e. Banishment of evil beasts out from the land (Ezek 34:25)
The color orange symbolizes the rooting of the Client Nation per the tree analogy. Rooting corresponds to founding or establishing, per the building analogy. Just as a tree must be firmly rooted to grow strong and bear fruit, the nation must be firmly founded. The Lord founded Zion just as He is the root and foundation of the believer in Salvation. The Lord Jesus Christ as the root of Jesse (or David) will rule in the Millennium.
The color orange also symbolizes the separation of the Client Nation from the world. First the people would have to separate from the world, as symbolized by the wall of linen around the Tabernacle. Then the nation would have to be set apart from the surrounding nations; otherwise, it would be choked out like a young plant surrounded by weeds and brush. The rooting of the nation results in the nation being promoted above other nations (Deut 28:2). And the nation will defeat its enemies, who will "flee seven ways" (symbolizing categorical defeat) (Deut 28:7).
YELLOW - Client Nation Glory (Isa 62:1): Life, light, glory - Blessing of offspring of body and produce of land, herds, flocks (Deut 28:4); national beauty (Isa 28:4); glory of Solomon's kingdom (Matt 6:29; 1 Kin 10:47; 2 Chr 9:46, 2022), glory of Babylon (Dan 2:37-38; 4:22, 30)
The color yellow symbolizes the glory of the Client Nation. The glory of Solomon's kingdom was the greatest on Earth. His glory also included great wealth in shining gold. The Kingdom of Babylon, which God raised up to destroy Israel, had great glory under Nebuchadnezzar.
Yellow also symbolizes life and light. It symbolizes blessing of the offspring of body, the produce of land, the herds, and the flocks. It includes national beauty (Isa 28:4). Regarding light, Solomon was famous for his wisdom, or enlightenment.
GREEN - Fruitful (Prosperous) Nation (Isa 27:6; 37:31; Ezek 34:26-27a; Hos 14:5-7): Blessing, fruit (Isa 4:2) - Blessing in city and country (Deut 28:3); Economic prosperity, Blessing of fruit basket and kneading bowl (food production) (Deut 28:5, Lev 26:4-5); Blessing of agriculture and work (Deut 28:8, 12)
The color green symbolizes a fruitful (prosperous) nation. In an agricultural economy, prosperity is measured by the productivity of crops and plants. If Israel would turn from apostasy and obey Bible Doctrine, the Lord promised to make the nation like the cedars of Lebanon, the olive tree, and the grape vine (Hos 14:5-7). The green tree was a symbol of national prosperity. It is God who makes the plants grow and flourish. He sends rain, controls the temperature, and protects from pestilence. Economic prosperity extends into the city, where butchers, bakers, and food processors and distributors also flourish. The blessing also extends to a person's work, whether on the farm or off (Deut. 28:8, 12).
BLUE - Righteous
Nation (Isa 60:21; 61:3; 62:1-2); Windows of Heaven Blessing
- Blue Skies and Showers of Blessing (Ezek 34:26; Mal 3:10): Heaven,
sky, rain (Deut 11:11); Divine Good Production, rain in season (Lev 28:4-5),
blessing of work, financial prosperity (Deut 28:12); water (Ezek 17:5)
a. The Righteous Servants distinguished from the wicked (Gen 18:25; Mal 3:18)
b. Watering the vine in the Millennium (Isa 27:2-3)
c. Tree reaching into the sky (Ezk 19:11)
The color blue symbolizes a Righteous nation. As the tree grows to maturity, its top reaches into the blue sky, which symbolizes the Righteousness of Heaven. Blue skies symbolize good weather and blessing. If Israel would tithe (a requirement of the Law), the Lord promised to open up the windows of Heaven in blessing. Blue also symbolizes water and rain. There will be rain in its season. The Grace blessing of the rain for the crops symbolizes Divine Good production. There will also be blessing of work and financial prosperity.
The people of a Righteous nation are called "Righteous terebinths" and "the planting of the Lord" (Isa 61:3). This is the tree analogy. The mature tree has capacity for great prosperity. It stands tall and strong. It provides a home for the birds of the sky, which symbolize the angels. Those who obey Bible Doctrine are Righteous servants of God as distinguished from the wicked and evildoers. God can bless His own. Just as the color green symbolizes blessing and Happiness, the color blue symbolizes even more blessing and Happiness for the nation of Spiritually Mature believers.
INDIGO - Peace and Security (Ezek 34:28): Internal (criminal justice) and external (military) (Deut 28:6-7; Lev 26:5); Peace, freedom, protection (Lev 26:6; Isa 27:2-3; Ezek 34:27), protection from pestilence (Mal 3:11), preservation of the remnant (Isa 4:2-3; 10:20-22; 37:31-32; Mal 3:16-17; Rom 9:27-28), wall of fire (Zech 2:5)
The color indigo symbolizes peace and security, which God provides. Peace on Earth will not come, however, until the Millennium. Security includes internal (criminal justice) and external (military) security. It also includes freedom for the people and preservation of the remnant. And it includes protection from pestilence. The Lord will protect Israel like a wall of fire.
VIOLET - Royal Priest Nation (Ex 19:6; Isa 28:5; 62:3): Justice, Judgment; Client Nation Blessing (Lev 26:9-10; Deut 33:29), Kingdom of priests (Ex 19:6; Dan 7:27); Blessing of internal (government) and external gates (military) (Isa 28:6), Military victory (Deut 28:6-7; Lev 26:7-8); Head and not a tail (Deut 28:13)
The color violet symbolizes the Royal Priest Nation. Royalty comes from association with the Lord Jesus Christ, the King. Priest refers to a nation of priests, who worship God. The Priest Nation may also be called the Client Nation to God. The Royal Priest Nation is a kingdom of priests (Ex 19:6). It will be exalted over other nations (Mal 3:12), which will not be fully possible until the Millennium, when the Lord Jesus Christ rules Israel (the Royal Priest Nation) and the world, and the Church is His Royal Family.
Client Nation Blessing includes:
Abundant prosperity (Lev 26:9)In the Millennium when the Lord Jesus Christ reigns, blessing and happiness shall extend from the heavens to the Earth.
Plantation of Renown (Ezek 34:29)
Royal status, Kingdom of priests (Ex 19:6) - exalted over the nations (Mal 3:12), culminating in the Millennium
Confirmation of God's Covenants (Lev 26:9)
Psalm 96:11-12Abundant Happiness will be expressed in the heavens by the alignment of planetary configurations in the signs of the Zodiac. The symbolic meaning of the alignments will glorify God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who sits on the Throne of David. The plants of the field will exult. This is poetry, but the plants of the field will prosper and symbolize happiness. And the trees of the wood will celebrate with shouting. The trees are green, which symbolizes Happiness and Blessing from God. The trees will sway like dancers when aroused by the weather angels. Like dancers, they will appear to be shouting upward in celebration of the King who is reigning over the Earth.
11 The heavens shall have abundant Happiness, and the Earth shall rejoice;
The sea shall roar and its fulness.
12 The field shall exult and all in it;
Then all the trees of the wood shall celebrate with shouting,
WHITE - Holy Nation (Ex 19:6; Deut 28:9; Isa 4:3); Spiritual Rapport: God dwelling among the people who Love Him in the nation (Lev 26:11-12; Ezek 34:30-31), God's own possession (Ex 19:5; Deut 7:6; Is 43:21; 1 Pet 2:9); Marriage to the LORD (Isa 62:4-5)
The color white symbolizes a Holy Nation. It symbolizes a people in Spiritual Rapport with God and God dwelling among the people, who have a Love relationship with Him. The people of the nation are for God's own possession, which is like marriage to the Lord.
v. 23-24 Appointment of David as Shepherd (Davidic Covenant)
The appointment of David as Shepherd of Israel is another prophecy of the Davidic Covenant in which the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of David will rule in the Millennium.
v. 25 Covenant of Peace (New Covenant to Israel)
Orange - Banishment of evil beasts out from the land (Red)
Yellow - Living in Safety in the desert and forests
I will make a covenant of peace with them, and banish the evil beasts out from the land, so that they will dwell safely in the desert and sleep in the forests. (Ezekiel 34:25)The Covenant of Peace is the New Covenant to Israel for the Millennium. God will provide the peace on Earth. He will banish evil beasts out from the land. "Evil" is the Hebrew, ra`ah, which means evil. The color for evil is orange. Removing, or banishing the evil animals (beasts) out from the land is another picture of separation as symbolized by the color orange. "The land" is symbolized by the color red. The people will dwell (or live) in safety in the desert and forests. Living is symbolized by the color yellow, for life and light.
Green v. 26-27a. Showers of Blessing (rain in season), Fruit
Ezekiel 34:26-27aRain will fall in its season so the trees can produce their fruit and the land can yield its produce. There will be showers of blessing. Fruit, produce, and blessing are all associated with the color green, while rain may be attributed to the color blue, which follows.
26 I will make them and the places round my hill a blessing, and cause the rain to fall in its season: showers of blessing shall there be. V. 27a. The tree of the field will yield its fruit, and the land will yield its produce,
Blue v. 27b. Knowing the LORD, Safety, Freedom (return from exile)
and they will be safe in their land, and will know that I am the LORD, when I break the bars of their yoke in pieces, and deliver them out from the hand of those who made them slaves. (Ezekiel 34:27b)They "will know that I am the LORD" when the LORD delivers them miraculously from slavery in exile. Knowing the Lord comes from perception and application of Bible Doctrine, which characterizes the Righteous believer and Righteous Nation. This is symbolized by the color blue.
Indigo v. 28 External & Internal Security
They will no longer be a prey to the nations, and the beasts of the earth will not devour them; but they will live securely, and no one will terrify them. (Ezekiel 34:28)The color indigo symbolizes the security, which the Lord provides. Israel will have external security from other nations, and it will have internal security from such things as crime as symbolized by attacks from wild animals.
Violet v. 29 Plantation of Renown
I will establish for them a plantation of renown, so that they will no more be depleted by famine in the land, and shall no longer bear the reproach of the (Gentile) nations.Israel will have a plantation of renown established by the Lord for all the world to see. According to the agricultural analogy, this is like the new title of knighthood or royal status as symbolized by the color violet. The plantation of renown will give Israel prominence and historical significance.
White v. 30-31 Dwelling with God
Ezekiel 34:30-31The color white symbolizes the blessing of the Holy Nation in which God dwells with the people in Spiritual Rapport.
30 Then they will know that I, the Lord their God, am with them, and that they, the house of Israel, are My people, declares the Lord God. 31 As for you, My sheep, the flock of My pasture, you are men, and I am your God, declares the Lord God.
The cycles of national cursing are described in the Bible in terms of an agricultural economy. When the rains fail, the economy collapses and the people perish. As the population declines and weakens, it becomes prey to evil kingdoms, which have prospered. According to the tree analogy, the plants die during drought, and the people die from famine. The people who are cast out of the land during the fall of the nation are symbolized by the uprooted tree. Or, according to the salt of the Earth analogy, the salt is cast out and trodden under foot by men (Matt 5:13).
The cycles of national cursing were illustrated by the fall of the Northern and Southern Kingdoms of Israel. After the Kingdom of Israel rose to great power and glory under David, the people rejected Bible Doctrine. The Northern Kingdom was conquered by the Assyrians after the people rejected the Mosaic Law and the prophets and entered into the idolatry of Baal and Baalzebub. The Southern Kingdom rejected Bible Doctrine also, along with the ministry of Jeremiah, and the people entered into the idolatry of Baal and the Phallic Cult. The Southern Kingdom was conquered by the Chaldeans of the world's first great empire of Babylon.
WHITE - Sanctification (Ex 19:5-6; Lev 26:11-12; Deut 7:6-8; Isa 62:12)
The nation that obeys Bible Doctrine will be sanctified, separated from the world and consecrated to God. God will dwell in the nation and bless it. However, if the nation rejects Bible Doctrine, then the seven cycles of divine punishment will begin.
VIOLET - Cycle 1 Warning Judgment: Loss of Health and Prosperity (Lev 26:16-17): Divine Judgment - Harsh rulers, terrorism, deteriorating health (Deut 28:22), enemies, military losses, fear; Decline in production; Jealousy - rejection of Bible Doctrine (Lev 26:14-15; Deut 28:15; Hos 4:1)
The first cycle of divine punishment is Warning Judgment, as symbolized by the color violet. Each cycle of punishment is a complete category of punishment, which is called "seven times" (Lev. 26:18 and following). Warning Punishment includes loss of health and prosperity. The people will suffer from deteriorating health, including consumption, fever, mental problems, and discouragement. Problems with eyesight are also implied. There will be harsh rulers and a general decline in leadership. There will be terrorism, attacks from enemies, military losses, and fear. There will be a decline in crop yield and in productivity.
Note that rejection of Bible Doctrine has its roots in arrogance and jealousy. Jealousy causes the split from the truth and leads to rebellion against God. This was the devil's problem when he wanted to be like the Most High, and it is the problem of rejecting Bible Doctrine. Jealousy is also symbolized by the color violet.
INDIGO - Cycle 2 Drought: Economic Recession (Lev 26:18-20; Jer 14:1-6): Drought - Sky (covering) like iron, Earth (covering) like bronze (Deut 28:23-24; Jer 3:3; 14:3-6). Security Breakdown: Internal (criminal justice) and external (military) (Deut 28:19, 29; Isa 5:5); hardening the heart (Exodus 7:3; 10:20, Isa 63:17).
The second cycle of national cursing is drought, which is a major problem in an agricultural economy. Drought produces economic recession. Drought is symbolized by the color indigo because of the description of the sky (covering) like iron and the Earth (covering) like bronze (Lev 26:19). Indigo also symbolizes security. There will be a security breakdown, both internal (criminal justice) and external (military). There will also be hardening of the heart, as when the Lord hardened Pharaoh's heart in order to destroy Egypt (Ex 7:3; 10:20).2
BLUE - Cycle 3 - Death of Children: Population Decline (Lev 26:21-22): Children Taken to Heaven; Animals hardened and attack children (symbol of Baal), cattle, and people - resulting in population decline. Debilitating illnesses (Deut 28:27, 35), mental illness (Deut 28:28), oppression and criminality (Deut 28:29; Hos 4:2), breakdown of Marriage Culture (Deut 28:30; Hos 4:2), injustice (Deut 28:31).
In Cycle 3 animals will kill children, which will bereave the families. The children who die before reaching the age of accountability, however, will go to Heaven. Thus, the color blue, for Heaven, symbolizes Cycle 3. The people had hardened their hearts against Bible Doctrine, and God hardened the animals so that they attacked the children. One of the ways hardening is manifest is in the color, blue, for self-righteousness. The killing of the children by animals is a symbol of cursing from Baal, the enemy of children. The wild animals will also attack the cattle and the people. This will result in a population decline, which means a weaker nation. In addition there will be debilitating illnesses, mental illnesses, oppression, injustice, and criminality.
Because of rejection of Bible Doctrine, there will also be a breakdown in Marriage Culture, which is the root of society.
Hosea 4:1-2The breakdown in Marriage Culture leads to the breakdown in the moral fabric of society, which includes criminality, deception, injustice, and violence.
1 "Hear the word of the Lord, you citizens of Israel,
Because the Lord has a case against the inhabitants of the Land (Client Nation),
Because there is no doctrine, no grace, and no knowledge of God in the Land.
2. There is swearing and lying, murder, stealing, and adultery.
They erupt into violence so that bloodshed follows bloodshed.
GREEN - Cycle 4 Pestilence: Economic Depression (Lev 26:23-26): Cursing in city and country (Deut 28:16); Cursing of fruit basket and kneading bowl (food production) (Deut 28:17); Economic Depression, Pestilence destroys green crops (Deut 28:21); Invasion by foreign army (Deut 28:25-26), taking children as slaves (Deut 28:32-34); Destruction of Environment (Hos 4:3).
The color green symbolizes pestilence, which destroys crops. In an agricultural economy, this causes Economic Depression. There is cursing not only in the country, but also in the city. In addition to the food and economic problems, there is invasion of the nation by a foreign army, and children are taken as slaves.
There is also destruction of the environment, which began with the severe drought of Cycle #2.
"Therefore the land mourns, and every inhabitant in it wastes away,The immoral degeneracy of Cycle 3 results in environmental destruction in Cycle 4. Even the animals suffer and die in the environmental disaster.
Along with the animals of the country and the birds of the sky.
Even the fishes of the sea have perished." (Hosea 4:3)
YELLOW - Cycle 5 Loss of Life: Conquered, Destroyed by Foreign Army (Lev 26:27-32; Deut 28:49-63): Loss of life (Hos 9:16), Military defeat, desolation of the cities and the land; Holocaust; Cursing of offspring of body and produce of land, herds, flocks (Deut 28:18)
Cycle 5 is symbolized by yellow because of the loss of life from the conquest and destruction of the nation by a foreign army. Those who survived the famine and suffering of the previous four cycles of cursing, face the horror of death and destruction from an invading army. There will be desolation of the cities and the land - the holocaust. The weakened military will be destroyed, and the people will become prey to their evil foes. Those who are spared will be carried away into slavery, and all their possessions will become spoil for the conqueror.
ORANGE - Cycle 6 Cast Out and Enslaved in Foreign Lands (Lev 26:33-37; Deut 28:36-48, 64): Cast out of (separated from) the Land and taken into slavery in foreign lands (Psa 1:4, Hos 9:15, 17; Matt 5:13); uprooted (Deut 29:28; 2 Chr 7:20; Ps 52:5; Prov 2:22; Ezek 19:12; Matt 15:13); destroyed root (Amos 2:9); Asherim rooted out (Mic 5:14); cut down at the root (Matt 3:10; Luk 3:9); pruning (Jn 15:2); remnant of cowards left behind (Lev 26:36-37).
In Cycle 6 the people are cast out of the Land and taken into slavery in foreign lands. The separation from the Land is symbolized by the color orange. Because the people rejected Bible Doctrine and refused to separate from the world, they will be separated from the Land by force. The people who became evil slaves of the Cosmic System will become slaves of an evil conqueror. The people who are taken away into captivity are like the "chaff which the wind drives away" (Psa 1:4). They are like uprooted trees. They are like the salt of the Land that lost its savor and was good for nothing "except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men" (Matt 5:13).
After this Fifth Cycle of Discipline (or national cursing), there will be a remnant of cowards left behind. They are like a tree cut down at the root, or severely pruned.
RED - Cycle 7 Categorical Punishment: Suffering and Dying as Slaves while Homeland Rests (Lev 26:38-45; Deut 28:65-68): Suffering (Lev 26:39), Sin unto death; chaff burned (Mal 4:1), symbol of Baptism of Fire (Matt 3:11-12; Luk 3:16-17)
Cycle 7 is Categorical Punishment, which completes the cycles of national cursing. The Categorical Punishment includes suffering and dying as slaves in a foreign land while the homeland rests. The evil people are left to suffer in a foreign land to give the homeland a Sabbath rest from the cursing these people brought to it. Cycle 7 is symbolized by red for the suffering in a foreign land.
So those of you who may be left will rot away because of their iniquity in the lands of your enemies; and also because of the iniquities of their fathers, which are with them, they will rot away. (Leviticus 26:39)Cycle 7 is like the Sin Unto Death, which is a state of severe suffering that leads to death. The people who are dying are like the chaff, which is burned. This is also a symbol of the Baptism of Fire when unbelievers are burned up at the Second Advent.
BLACK - Death, Burial in Foreign Lands (Lev 26:38-39); Death from military defeat and other curses (Deut 28:26)
Black symbolizes all those who died and are buried in foreign lands. It also symbolizes all those who die from military defeat or other curses during the fall of the nation.
Psalm 104:29-30In all of Creation there are seven types of life. The seven types of life are sustained by seven Spirits from the Heavenly Control Room (Rev 5:6). The seven types of life are symbolized by the colors of the rainbow.
29 When You hide Your face, they are dismayed;
When You take away their spirit, they expire,
And return to their dust.
30 When You send forth Your Spirit, they are created;
And You renew the face of the ground.
BLACK - Death (Job 34:14-15; Ps 104:29; 146:4; Eccl 12:7)
RED - Animal Soul Life (Genesis 1:30; Lev. 17:14)
ORANGE - Biological (Cell) Life (Animals, Man - in the womb) (Job 10:9-11; Psa. 139:13)
YELLOW - Human Soul Life (neshamah) = spark of life) (Genesis 2:7; Psa 104:30; Isa. 2:22); a living person has light and glory (Job 33:30; Psa 8:5)
GREEN - Plant Life (Genesis 1:11-13)
BLUE - Human Spirit Life (identification with Heaven) (Job 10:12; Rom. 8:16; 1 Cor 2:13-15; 2 Cor. 7:13; Philemon 25; 1 Thess. 5:23)
INDIGO - Angelic Life (Psalm 33:6), clothing (Jn 20:12; Rev 10:1; 15:6); clothing like angels (Matt 17:2; Mark 9:2; Luke 9:29); covered the Mercy Seat (Ex 25:20)
The heavens are coverings and the angels were created to populate them (Psa 33:6)
VIOLET - Resurrection Life (Heb 2:7-9) (Rom 1:4; 1 Cor 15:42; 1 Pet 1:3, 3:21); Justification (Rom 4:25), Royalty (Phil 2:9-11; 1 Ti 6:15); Royal Family (Matt 19:28; 1 Pet 2:9; Rev 1:6; 5:10)
WHITE - Sanctification - "uncleanness" (Matt 23:27)
VIOLET - Justice, Judgment, Jealousy - "full of robbery and self-indulgence" (Matt 23:25-26)
INDIGO - Covering of Heaven - "shut off the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 23:13)
BLUE - Water - "travel about on sea and land to make one proselyte" (Matt 23:15)
GREEN - Plants - "tithe mint and dill and cummin" (Matt 23:23-24)
YELLOW - Life and Light - "blind guides" (Matt 23:16-22)
ORANGE - Separation - "full of dead men's bones" (Matt 23:27-28)
RED - Blood - "Righteous blood" on their hands (murderers) (Matt 23:29-35)
BLACK - Death - "dead men's bones and all uncleanness" (Matt 23:27)
The first planet inside the Asteroid Belt is the Red Planet, which symbolizes
the Blood of Christ, His substitutionary spiritual death for the sins of
the world. The next planet as viewed from Earth is the Morning Star,
which is orange, for separation. The Morning Star is the herald of
the dawn, which is the separation between the darkness of night and the
light of day. The Morning Star is the herald of the First and Second
Advents of the Lord Jesus Christ. In the First Advent, He was separated
on the Cross, where He alone paid for the sins of the world. He will
return at the Second Advent with His armies to destroy the enemies of Israel
from whom He has separated. He will also separate the sheep from
the goats and burn up the unbelievers in the Baptism of Fire. The
next planet is the Savior Planet, which is nearest the Sun and can only
be seen at twilight because of the Sun's glare. The Savior Planet
symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. The Savior saves
man's soul from spiritual death, and the believer becomes a child of God.
He gives Eternal Life, which enlightens every person (John 1:4).
Thus, the Savior Planet is symbolized by the color yellow, for Life
In the illustration at the right, the planets are arranged vertically in symbolic order. The first three planets inside the Asteroid Belt excluding Earth, the vantage point, are the Red Planet (red), the Morning Star (orange), and the Savior Planet (yellow). The three colors are in the correct sequential order of the rainbow.
The planets outside of the Asteroid Belt are in a different order. They are in the order of priority. The first planet outside the Asteroid Belt is the Almighty God Planet, which symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Almighty and Sovereign Ruler as King of kings and Lord of lords. This planet symbolizes the strategic victory of the Cross, which was the greatest victory ever. It is symbolized by the color violet.
The next planet is the God of the Covenants, or Ringed Planet, which symbolizes all of the covenants between God and man, including the New Covenants to Israel and the Church, as well as the Marriage Covenant between the Lord and His bride. The planet is covered with rings more than any of the other outer planets. The rings symbolize covenants, but they also symbolize clothing, or covering. Man is required to obey God, which means to be under (covered by) His covenants. This began in the Garden with the Edenic Covenant and continued with the Adamic and subsequent covenants.3 The Ringed Planet symbolizes God's covenants as well as the Queen for the King. In the Millennium, the Queen will be Israel as the Client Nation and the Church. The Ringed Planet is symbolized by the color indigo.
The next two planets, the Mediator and Redeemer planets, are in the correct color order for the completion of the rainbow. The orbits of these two planets are interlocked like a chain. The Mediator Planet symbolizes Jesus Christ as the Mediator between God and man. He satisfied all of the Righteous requirements of God, since He was God, and all of the needs of mankind, since He was perfect humanity. Thus, He became the Mediator between God and man at the Cross. Since God was satisfied with Christ; therefore, the believer is reconciled to God (Rom 5:10, 11; 2 Cor 5:18-20; Col 1:20-22; Heb 9:15). The color for the Mediator Planet is green. The actual planet is green or has a greenish tint, depending upon the photograph.
The Mediator Planet has its axis 90 degrees from the axes of the other planets. The axis points toward the Earth in one direction and toward Heaven in the other to symbolize a mediator between God and man. In other words, the axis points in the direction of a cross standing on the Earth. Green is the middle color of the rainbow (a symbol of a mediator). The foliage of a tree is suspended between Heaven and Earth, as Jesus Christ was on the Cross, which He called a tree (Luk 23:31). Thus, the orientation of the axis and the color green of the Mediator Planet, both symbolize a mediator. The crossbar of the Cross also symbolizes the Mediator. The crossbar is suspended between Heaven and Earth. As shown on the illustration, the planets of the Solar System form a giant Cross with the crossbar running through the axis of the Mediator Planet.
When Jesus Christ had finished His work on the Cross, He died physically and rose on the third day with a Resurrection body. The Redeemer planet, which is blue, symbolizes Jesus Christ in His Resurrection body. The spots that are red on the Almighty God Planet are white on the Redeemer Planet to symbolized scars that have healed. The Redeemer purchased mankind from the slave market of sin by means of His own precious blood (1 Pet 1:18-19). The interlocking orbits of the Redeemer and Mediator Planets symbolize the chain of slavery, which Christ broke when He set mankind free from sin. The Redeemer Planet is blue, which symbolizes Heaven. Jesus Christ came down from Heaven in the incarnation and ascended back to Heaven in His Resurrection body.
The seven colors of the rainbow correspond to the seven planets, as seen from Earth, which also correspond to the seven stars in the hand of Christ (Rev 1:16, 20; 2:1; 3:1). Although the Last Adam planet is not needed to complete the symbolism of the rainbow and the Great Cross in the sky, it easily fits into the picture. It is packed in ice, which symbolizes sanctification. The Lord Jesus Christ in His humanity was perfect and without sin. Thus, He was uniquely qualified to be a sin bearer.
The Sun symbolizes Jesus Christ, the bridegroom (Psa 19:4-6). And the Moon symbolizes His Bride, the congregation of believers. The Bride is the Church, since Israel rejected the Lord. The Bride will be dressed in white for the wedding feast, which lasts for a thousand years in the Millennium (Rev 19:7). The color of the Sun and the Moon is white, which symbolizes Sanctification and Love.
RED - Red Planet - Blood of Christ (Acts 20:28; Rom 3:25; 5:9; 1 Cor 10:16; Eph 2:13; Heb 9:14; 1 Pet 1:2, 19; 1 Jn 5:6; Rev 1:5); Sacrifice (Eph 5:2; Heb 9:26; 10:12); Blood of enemies of Christ killed at Armageddon (Rev 14:20)
The Red Planet symbolizes the Blood of Christ and the blood of the enemies of Christ killed at Armageddon. The Blood of Christ is a metaphor for His substitutionary spiritual death on the Cross for the sins of the world. The metaphor is based upon the blood of animal sacrifices.
How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself blameless to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God? (Hebrews 9:14)The blood of the enemies of Christ killed at Armageddon will run up to the horses' bridles for 183 miles (295 km) (Rev. 14:20).
ORANGE - Morning
Star - herald of the First and Second Advents: First Advent
- "a star shall come from Jacob" (Num 24:17; Matt 2:2); Second Advent (2
Pet 1:19; Rev 22:16)
a. The Morning Star is the herald of the dawn, which separates the light of day from the darkness of night (Gen 1:4).
b. Separation of the Father from Jesus Christ on the Cross (Matt 27:46)
c. Separation of Jesus Christ at Second Advent - He will separate from the enemies of Israel and kill them all by Himself (Rev 19:21).
I, Jesus, have sent My messenger to declare these things to you for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright Morning Star. (Revelation 22:16)The Morning Star planet is a shade of orange, which symbolizes separation. Jesus Christ called Himself the "root of David" and the "Morning Star." The root of a tree symbolizes separation. At the Second Advent, the Lord will be visible like the Morning Star as He circles the globe with His armies of angels and the Church. The Morning Star is the herald of the dawn, which separates daylight from night. The Morning Star is the herald of the First Advent of Christ, when Light came into the world (Matt 4:16; Jn 3:19; 12:46). When Jesus Christ was bearing the sins of the world, the Father separated from Him, and Jesus alone suffered for sin. At the Second Advent the Lord Jesus Christ will separate from the enemies of Israel and kill them all by Himself.
YELLOW - Savior Planet - Life, the Light of men (Jn 1:4; 9:5) (2 Ti 1:10; Tit 2:13-14; 1 Jn 4:14), saves and gives Eternal Life (Jn 3:16, 36; Rom 6:23; 1 Jn 5:11); nearest the Sun
The Savior Planet is symbolized by the color yellow, which represents Life and Light. The Savior saves and gives Eternal Life to those who are spiritually dead. The Savior Planet is the planet nearest the Sun. Because of the Sun's glare, it can only be seen at twilight.
GREEN - Mediator Planet - Ref. Colors of the Cross.
The Mediator Planet is green. The Mediator Planet symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ as the mediator between God and man. The Mediator provided the Redemption solution whereby mankind is reconciled to God.
BLUE - Redeemer Planet - purchased mankind from the slave market of sin by His own blood (Rom 3:24; 1 Cor 1:30; Eph 1:7); Redeemer (Ex 6:6; 15:13; Lev 25:48-49; Deut 7:8; 1 Chr 17:21; Neh 1:10; Psa 49:15; 69:18; 119:134, 154; 130:8; Hos 13:14; Gal 4:5; Tit 2:14) (Job 5:20; Psa 78:35; Isa 41:14; 44:6, 21-24; 49:7, 26; 54:5; 59:20; 60:16; 63:16; Jer 50:34), Alive (Job 19:25); Day of Redemption, the Rapture when Resurrection Body is received (Eph 1:13-14; 4:30)
The color blue symbolizes the Redeemer Planet, which symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ, who pays the ransom, or price of redemption. He redeemed Israel from slavery in Egypt.
"Say, therefore, to the sons of Israel, 'I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from their bondage. I will also redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. (Exodus 6:6)The Lord Jesus Christ purchased mankind from the slave market of sin by His death on the Cross. The Church Age believer in a body under bondage to the Old Sin Nature, will be redeemed with a Resurrection body at the Rapture. Client Nation Israel, which was redeemed on many occasions by the Lord, the Redeemer, will be redeemed by Him at the Second Advent from the enemies of the world.
Isaiah 44:6, 23-24INDIGO - Ringed, God of the Covenants Planet - Laws of God over mankind from Eden to Last Judgment;3 Covering (Rom 4:7), Unlimited Atonement, Propitiation (Dan 9:24; Rom 3:25; Heb 2:17; 1 John 2:2; 4:10); clothing of Covenants and Resurrection body (Matt 17:2; Mk 9:3; Lk 9:29; Rev 1:13; 19:13, 16); Eternal Security (Jn 10:28); the Queen for the King (Israel and the Church), Bride of Christ (Eph 5:27; Rev 19:7-8)
6 Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel
And his Redeemer, the Lord of the Armies: I am the first and I am the last,
And there is no God besides Me.
23 Shout for joy, O heavens, for the LORD has done it!
Shout joyfully, you depths of the earth;
Break forth into a shout of joy, you mountains,
O forest, and every tree in it;
For the Lord has redeemed Jacob
And in Israel He shows forth His glory.
24 Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the one who formed you outside of the womb,
"I, the LORD, am the maker of all things,
Stretching out the heavens by Myself,
And spreading out the Earth all alone,
Indigo symbolizes the Ringed, or God of the Covenants Planet, which symbolizes the covenants of God over mankind beginning with the Edenic Covenant and continuing to the Last Judgment.3 A ring symbolizes a covenant. The covering of rings of the planet symbolizes Unlimited Atonement and Propitiation. The rings symbolize the clothing of Christ's Resurrection body. They also symbolize Eternal Security based upon the promise of God.
The Ringed Planet also symbolizes the Queen of the King (Almighty God Planet). The Queen represents Client Nation Israel and the Bride of Christ, the Church. The Ringed Planet symbolizes the authority relationship in Marriage, whereas, the Moon symbolizes the love relationship and sanctification. In the Millennium when Jesus Christ rules the world from the Throne of David, Israel will be the Client Nation (God's chosen priest nation) and the Church will be the Bride of Christ.
VIOLET - Almighty God Planet - Highest, Sovereign authority (Isa 9:6; Matt 28:18; Phil 2:9-11; 1 Ti 6:15; 2 Ti 4:18; Rev 1:5; 17:14; 19:16), victory of the Cross (John 16:33; Rev 3:21; 5:5), seated on God's Throne (Eph 1:20-22; Heb 10:12-13; Rev 3:21); Justice (Psa 89:14; 97:1-9); Royalty, King of Jews (Matt 2:2; 27:37; Jn 19:19); Justification (Rom 3:24-26; 5:18); Millennial King (Psa 89:3-4, 146:10; Isa 24:23; 28:5; 62:3; Jer 23:5-6; 2 Ti 2:12; Rev 3:21; 20:6)
The Almighty God Planet symbolizes the highest, sovereign authority over all Creation. Following the strategic victory of Christ on the Cross, He was promoted from "King of the Jews" to "King of kings and Lord of lords." This title is above every title. The Great Red Spot on the Almighty God Planet symbolizes the place where the Roman spear pierced the side of Christ after He had finished bearing the sins of the world and had died physically. He had just finished winning the greatest victory ever. The color violet symbolizes the perfect Justice of God, which was satisfied when Jesus Christ was Judged for the sins of the world.
Violet symbolizes royalty. The Lord Jesus Christ will rule the world in the Millennium as King from the Throne of David. Violet also symbolizes the Throne of God's perfect Justice in the Third Heaven, where Jesus Christ is currently seated waiting for His enemies to be made a footstool for His feet.
WHITE - Sun,
Moon, Last Adam Planet
a. Sun - Jesus Christ, Bridegroom (Psa 19:4-6), the Light (Ex 25:21; Jn 1:4, 9; 12:35); Light of the world (Jn 3:19; 8:12; 9:5; 11:9; 12:46), glory (Matt 17:2; Rev 1:16); pure (SOS 6:10; Mal 1:11)
b. Moon - Bride, Church (Rev 19:7-8), Israel (Is 54:5-8; 62:4, 5; Hos 2:19)
c. Last Adam (2 Cor 5:21; Heb 4:15; 1 Pet 1:19; 2:22; 1 Jn 3:5) - impeccable human nature of Jesus Christ, who was without sin and uniquely qualified to bear the sins of the world.
The Sun is white. It symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ in the fulness of His glory. The other planets, which reflect the light of the Sun, represent specific parts of the person of Christ and His work of redemption. The Sun, which appears to be traveling around the Earth and through the signs of the Zodiac, symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Bridegroom. The Moon symbolizes His Bride, the Church and Israel. The Church will be arrayed in white linen in Resurrection bodies for the Wedding Feast of the Millennium. The white linen symbolizes sanctification.
The color white also symbolizes the Last Adam Planet, which is packed in ice. The Last Adam Planet symbolizes the perfect humanity of Jesus Christ in Hypostatic Union, who was without sin and able to bear the sins of the world.
What follows is that succeeding ages of history are symbolized by the colors of the rainbow along with corresponding planets and Feasts celebrated in Israel. Orange symbolizes separation of God from man after The Fall. The corresponding feast is the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Yellow, which symbolizes Life and Eternal Life, corresponds to the Age of Israel, which was analogous to the trunk of a tree. Israel was the caretaker of the Laws of God and the means of evangelizing the Gentiles. The Mosaic Law with the Levitical sacrifices portrayed the sacrifice for sins at the Cross as symbolized by the Passover.
The Church Age is symbolized by green for blessing or fruit bearing. It is the age of great Spiritual productivity, the fruit of the Spirit. It began at Pentecost, which celebrated the end of the wheat harvest. This corresponds to the world-wide evangelism of the Church Age.
The Millennium is symbolized by blue, for the Kingdom of Heaven. This corresponds to the Feast of Tabernacles, which was held in the seventh month, for categorical completion, at the end of the civil year. The Feast of Tabernacles signifies the Lord dwelling with His people on the Earth during the Millennium.
Indigo symbolizes the covering of the heavens and the subsequent destruction of the Universe after the Millennium. Violet symbolizes the Royal Family of God and corresponds to the creation of the new heavens and new Earth of the Eternal State. This is symbolized by the Feast of Lights, Purim, or Dedication. And white symbolizes holy sanctification corresponding to the glory of the New (Heavenly) Jerusalem.
RED - Earth
- Creation of the Heavens and the Earth (Universe) - Feast of New Moon
Planets: Earth, Moon, Red Planet
In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth (Genesis 1:1)The ages of time began with the creation of the heavens and the Earth, where the Earth was symbolized by the color red and the heavens by blue. The Earth is red, but appears blue when viewed from the heavens. After the creation of the Universe, God created angels. When Satan sinned, he was cast down to the Earth along with his demons. Later, man was created from the red Earth, and he also sinned. Thus, the red Earth also symbolizes sin. And because blood is the solution to sin, the color red also symbolizes blood, which corresponds to the meaning of the Red Planet, for the Blood of Christ.
The Hebrew calendar was lunar. Each month the Feast of the New Moon was observed (Nu 10:10; 28:11). Just as Genesis was the book of beginnings, the New Moon began the month and was a reminder of the beginning of time, which God created in the Universe. Time only exists in the Universe.
ORANGE - Separation
- The Fall, Separation from God - Feast of Unleavened Bread
Planet: Morning Star
The Fall usually applies to the sin of man. However, Satan also sinned and fell. When he sinned, he was cast out of Heaven, and fell to the Earth.
"How you have fallen from Heaven,Satan was trying to be like the Morning Star as the herald of the dawn. He was trying to be like the Most High when he sinned. When the Lord comes down from Heaven at the Second Advent to fight in the Armageddon War, He will be symbolized by the Morning Star. Thus, the Morning Star is associated with battle (Rev 2:28; 22:16).
O shining one (star), son (sun) of the dawn (Morning Star)!
You have been cut down to the Earth,
You who have laid low the nations! (Isaiah 14:12)
When man sinned, he was cast out of the Garden of Eden (Gen 3:22-24). Sin causes separation from God (Isa 59:2). God is Holy and can have nothing to do with sin.
YELLOW - Life,
Eternal Life - Age of Israel - Feast of Passover
The color yellow symbolizes Life and Eternal Life. It is the color of the trunk of a tree. Israel is symbolized by the olive tree, and the Church is symbolized by branches grafted into the tree (Rom 11:17). The people of Israel were God's own possession. They were the elect, the chosen, who were called out of the world into Salvation. Israel was a nation of believers, while the surrounding Gentile nations were unbelievers. The Lord dwelt in the camp of Israel. Israel was the custodian of the Holy scripture, and Client Nation Israel was responsible for evangelizing the world. During the wilderness wanderings, Israel was a theocracy with God as the head. It was called to be a holy nation.
The Mosaic Law defined sin, and the Levitical sacrifices established the requirements for forgiveness of sin. The function of the priesthood in the ministry of the Tabernacle established the requirements for a relationship with the Holy God. And the Feast of the Passover symbolized the Lamb who would take away the sins of the world. Israel established the patterns, types, and symbols in the temporal realm that would be fulfilled in the Spiritual realm in the incarnation and Church Age. Israel set the stage for the coming Savior and His work of Redemption and laid the foundation for the Church Age and Millennium to come.
GREEN - Blessing,
Fruit - Church Age - Feast of Pentecost
The color green corresponds to the leaves and branches that bear the fruit in a tree. Thus, green is the color for blessing and production. The Church Age is the age of grace blessing. It is the age of Spiritual production, the fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22). It includes world-wide evangelism such as never occurred in history. The fields are white for harvest (Jn 4:35). And the color green corresponds to the color of the Mediator Planet, which symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ, the Mediator between God and man (1 Tim 2:5) and the Mediator of the New Covenant to the Church (Heb 9:15).
The Church Age began on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1). Pentecost was the second of three major feasts in Israel (Ex 23:16; Lev 23:15-22; Nu 28:26-31; Deut 16:9-12). The others were the Passover and Tabernacles. Pentecost concluded the harvest of latter grains. It came at the end of the wheat harvest, fifty days after the Passover at the end of May or beginning of June. Pentecost is called the Feast of Weeks (Ex 34:22; Deut 16:10, 16; 2 Chron 8:13) and Feast of the Harvest (Ex 23:16). It is also called the Day of First Fruits to the LORD (Nu 28:26) when the first loaves made from the new grain were offered by a wave offering to the LORD (Lev 23:17) and then given to the priests (Lev 23:20).
Whereas, the Passover was associated with the sacrifice for sins, Pentecost was associated with the grain harvest. The Passover characterized the Age of Israel, while Pentecost characterized the Church Age. Reaping the grain during the harvest symbolized evangelism of the masses.
BLUE - Heaven
- Kingdom of Heaven, the Millennium - Feast of Tabernacles
Blue is the color for Heaven, and it symbolizes the Kingdom of Heaven, which is also called the Millennium. The Lord Jesus Christ will rule the world from the Throne of David for a thousand years. This will be a period of perfect environment, great prosperity, peace on the Earth, and spirituality, such as the world has never had. As the last great age of human history, it corresponds to the Feast of Tabernacles, which came in the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar at the end of the civil year.
The Feast of Tabernacles commemorated the time when the people of Israel lived in booths in the region of Succoth as they fled Egypt during the Exodus and before they lived in tents in the desert (Lev 23:42-43). The temporary shelters were God's Logistical Grace provision of shelter and came to symbolize the future dwellings in the Millennium when the Lord will dwell with His people again as He did with Israel. The celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles was heralded by the Feast of Trumpets, which coincided with the Feast of the New Moon on the first day of the seventh month (Lev 23:24-25; Nu 29:1-6). The Great Day of Atonement was celebrated on the tenth day (Lev 23:26-32; Nu 29:7-11), and the Feast of Tabernacles began on the fifteenth day (Lev 23:33-44; Nu 29:12-38).
INDIGO - Covering
- Destruction of the Universe
Planet: God of the Covenants
The color indigo symbolizes a covering. The planet with a covering is the Ringed Planet, the God of the Covenants. Covenants refer to agreements under which people operate. The Universe was created as the environment for angels and man. It is like a covering, clothing, or the backdrop of a stage. It declares the glory of God and reveals His grand design. Through it man reaches God consciousness and becomes aware of eternity and the existence of the Creator so that he can choose Salvation. When human history is completed at the end of the Millennium and the Great White Throne Judgment is completed, there will be no more need for the Universe of Time. Time will end and Eternity will begin. Then the Universe will be destroyed.5 Matter and energy will cease to exist.
But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a whish, and the elements being consumed by heat, will be destroyed; and the Earth and the works in it will be burned up. (2 Peter 3:10)Peter begins the description of the destruction of the Universe with a reference to the Second Advent in order to explain the necessity for right priorities in the Spiritual Life. The "Day of the Lord" refers to the Second Advent (Matt. 24:43; Luke 12:39; 1 Thess. 5:2; Rev. 3:3; 16:15). Then he immediately launches into a description of the destruction of the Universe at the end of the Millennium. The implication is that just as the Age of Israel will end suddenly with the Baptism of Fire, the world will also end with the destruction of heavens and the Earth.
"The heavens will pass away with a whish." The word, "whish," is the Greek roizhdovn (roizedon), which means with a hissing or crackling sound; the noise made by something passing swiftly through the air. "And the elements being consumed by heat, will be destroyed." The word, "elements," refers to the elementary forms of matter, like earth, air, fire, water. Although this is not the vocabulary of a nuclear physicist, the implication is that if the elementary substances are destroyed by heat, their building blocks will also be destroyed. "And the Earth and the works in it will be burned up." The Earth and everything on it will also be destroyed. The believers in Resurrection bodies will survive all this. Their bodies will be made of something that is eternal.
Since you eagerly look forward to and hasten the coming of the Day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by thermonuclear explosion and the elements, being consumed by nuclear fusion, will disintegrate. (2 Peter 3:12)The "Day of God" refers to the Eternal State, which will begin after the Universe is destroyed. A more detailed description of the destruction of the Universe follows. "The heavens will be destroyed by thermonuclear explosion." Here the Greek puroo means to burn; make red hot, cause to glow. However, in the context, "the heavens will pass away with a whish." The vast amounts of matter burning up instantaneously obviously refers to the disintegration of matter, which occurs in fusion when matter is converted to energy. In our vocabulary, this would be called a "thermonuclear explosion."
"And the elements, being consumed by nuclear fusion, will disintegrate." Here the Greek kausoo means to burn up; be consumed by heat. This is a description of nuclear fusion. Next, the Greek teko means to be melted, melt away, dissolve; therefore, to disintegrate. This refers to the transformation of matter into energy in which matter disappears. This occurs during nuclear fusion.
All the host of the heavens will disintegrate,Isaiah described a similar scenario. "All the host of the heavens will disintegrate." "Host" refers to the individual stars, planets, constellations, and other heavenly bodies. They will all disintegrate, which is the Hebrew maqaq, meaning to moulder away. They will fall to pieces like leaves. "The sky will vanish like smoke, and the Earth will wear out like a garment" (Isaiah 51:6).
And the heavens will be rolled up like a scroll;
All their hosts will also fall
As leaves fall from the vine,
And as leaves fall from the fig tree. (Isaiah 34:4)
Violet symbolizes royalty. The Lord will create a new heavens and Earth as the home of the Royal Family of God, where believers in Resurrection bodies will ever be with the Lord. The new heavens and Earth with the New Jerusalem is symbolized by the Feast of Lights (Hanukkah), which is also called Dedication (Jn 10:22), and is similar to Purim (Esth 9:24-32). The Feast of Lights commemorated the purifying of the Temple in the time of Judas Maccabeus, 164 BC, after it had been desecrated by pigs' blood.
But according to His promise we are looking for a new heavens and new earth, in which righteousness dwells. (2 Peter 3:13)In both these verses the word, "new," is the Greek kainos, which means new in kind. The new heavens and Earth will be made of an entirely new, eternal material, unlike the old. The sea will not exist on the new Earth because the sea symbolizes Political Babylon (Rev 13:1), home of the Prostitute of Babylon (Jude 13; Rev 17:1). The constellations of the current Universe will not exist in the future one. The creation of the new heavens and Earth are also described in Isaiah 65:17 and 66:22.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new Earth, for the first heaven and the first Earth passed away; and the sea no longer exists. (Revelation 21:1)
White is the color for holiness and sanctification. It symbolizes the glory of the New Jerusalem on the new Earth in the Eternal State. The New Jerusalem, or Heavenly Jerusalem, will be the home of the Church, not Israel. It is symbolized by the glory of the Sun.
Revelation 21:10-11The New Jerusalem is the same as the Heavenly Jerusalem (Hebrews 12:22-23; 13:14; Galatians 4:26), the home of the Church. The Royal Family of God has a higher calling, which is separate and distinct from Israel (Hebrews 13:10).
10 And he carried me away in the spiritual realm to a great, high mountain and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from the presence of God, 11 having the glory of God. Its splendor was like a precious stone, as a diamond stone glittering like a crystal.
And the city has no need of the Sun nor of the Moon to shine upon it; for you see, the glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb. (Revelation 21:23)
The Morning Star symbolizes the Christian as the herald of the dawn, which is an analogy of the Second Advent in relation to the Millennium that follows (1 Pet 1:19). As the Morning Star, the believer is a light that divides the darkness of the world to point to Christ, the Light. As the believer is enlightened, more light shines in his soul, and clothed with the armor of the Light, he is able to overcome the world as a winner believer in Spiritual Warfare. Thus, the Morning Star symbolizes the believer as a separatist in conflict with the world. The Christian life is not of this world.
The Savior Planet, which is the smallest on the chart (other than the Moon), symbolizes believers as sons of God with Eternal Life and Light. The Mediator Planet symbolizes the believer as a priest, who represents himself to God and intercedes for others in the world. The function of the priesthood includes prayer and praise along with a temple for God in the believer's body (1 Cor 6:19). The Redeemer Planet symbolizes the Christian as redeemed from the slave market of sin by Jesus Christ on the Cross. This is called the Spiritual Life in which the believer with the Filling of the Holy Spirit has power to overcome the influence of Old Sin Nature.
The God of the Covenants Planet (Ringed Planet) symbolizes the disciple of Christ, who is indoctrinated in the mystery doctrine (also called hidden doctrine) of the Church (Jn 8:31-32; Col 1:26; 2 Pet 3:18). This is the doctrine of the New Covenant to the Church contained in the epistles to the Church. The Christian is sanctified by the truth of Bible Doctrine.
The Almighty God Planet, the largest and boldest planet, symbolizes the Christian as a member of the Royal Family of God. This is the highest calling of Creation. The Church Age believer was called to be a part of the Royal Family of Christ. Christians will rule and reign with Christ in the Millennium, and be associated with Christ, the King, forever. As royalty, the Christian needs to learn to function as royalty in the Spiritual life.
Thus, the planets of the Solar System, which were previously defined in relation to Christ, can also viewed in relation to the Christian to define the major aspects of the Christian Life. The summary which follows will not include the definitions of the planets previously given, but will show their relation to the Christian life along with the respective colors of the rainbow.
RED - Red Planet - Salvation, Blood of Christ - Suffering
The Red Planet with its corresponding red color symbolizes Salvation, which was purchased by the Blood of Christ. Salvation includes not only being saved from death, but also recovery (Rebound), and deliverance from enemies. At Salvation, the Christian is identified with Jesus Christ in His substitutionary spiritual death on the Cross (Phil 3:10; 1 Pet 2:24).
He Himself carried our sins in His own body (humanity, Hypostatic Union) on the cross that we might die to sin and live to Righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. (1 Peter 2:24)The color red also symbolizes sin. The sins of the believer were purified by the Blood of Christ (Eph 5:26; Titus 2:14; Heb 1:3; 9:14; 2 Pet 1:9; 1 Jn 1:7). Because sins were paid for on the Cross, a recovery procedure (Rebound) is available to restore the Christian to fellowship with God when he sins after Salvation. Red is a color for suffering, which the Christian will have in the world (Rom 8:17; 2 Cor 1:5; Phil 3:10; 1 Pet 4:13).
Just as birth is the beginning of life, Salvation is the beginning of a new Christian life for the believer. God is the Father of the new Christian, and as a loving parent caring for a child, God provides for the new Christian's every need. The Christian has a calling, which includes a new life with a purpose and the means to fulfill his destiny. He has been born into the Royal Family of God and will have that royal status forever. He is destined for Spiritual Maturity and Spiritual Rapport in this life. He can enjoy a love relationship with God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. After being Baptized with the Holy Spirit at Salvation, he has the Filling of the Holy Spirit with the power to execute his new Spiritual life and overcome the world. And he has a home in Heaven, the promise of a Resurrection body, and rewards for Eternity.
ORANGE - Morning Star - Herald of the Dawn - Spiritual Warfare
The Morning Star symbolizes the Christian as the herald of the dawn. As the Morning Star separates the darkness of night from the light of day, the light of the Christian divides the darkness of the world and points to Christ the Light of the day. The Christian must put on the armor of the Light in order to overcome the darkness of the Cosmic System in Spiritual Warfare (Rom 13:12; Eph 6:11-13). The winner believer will be rewarded with the Order of the Morning Star (Rev 2:28). Just as the Morning Star is orange, for separation, the Christian is a separatist from the devil's world. The Morning Star symbolizes conflict, like war at the Second Advent when Christ, the Morning Star returns.
Yet, we possess a more reliable prophetic doctrine, to which you do well to pay attention, as a lamp shining in a squalid place, until the day dawns, and the Morning Star arises in your hearts. (2 Peter 1:19)The Christian is like "a lamp shining in a squalid place," which refers to the period of the Gospels, the First Advent of Christ. This corresponds to the revelation of the light of the Gospel in the heart (Isa 9:2; Matt 4:16; Luke 1:78-79; Eph 5:8). The beginning light of the Gospel will continue to grow to enlighten the believer after Salvation. The day dawning and Morning Star arising symbolizes the Second Advent and Millennium which follows. The Morning Star symbolizes Christ at the Second Advent (Rev 22:16). The day dawning symbolizes the Glory of the Lord on Zion at the Second Advent (Is 60:1; Mal 4:2). And this symbolizes the enlightenment of Christ in the heart of the Christian (Rom 13:12-13; 2 Cor 4:6; Eph 5:14; 1 Thess 5:5; 1 Jn 2:8).
YELLOW - Savior Planet - Sons of God - Eternal Life, Light
The small Savior Planet symbolizes born-again Christians as sons of God with Eternal Life and Light. The Christian becomes a son of God, a member of His family, at Salvation (Rom 8:14, 19; Gal 3:26). The Christian has God's Life, which is Eternal (John 3:36; 6:40; Rom 6:23; 1 Jn 2:25) and can never be lost (John 10:28). The Christian with Eternal Life also has God's Light (Jn 12:36; Eph 5:8; 1 Thess 5:5). Jesus Christ is the source of Light in the world (John 1:9); therefore, the Christian has the unique opportunity to walk in the Light in this world (1 Jn 1:7).
GREEN - Mediator Planet - Priest - Prayer, Temple
The Mediator Planet symbolizes the believer-priest in the Church, who prays to God and is the temple of God. Christ is the High Priest, and every Christian is a priest, who can represent himself before God and intercede for others. The body of the Christian is the temple of God (1 Cor 3:16; 2 Cor 6:16). The Holy Spirit indwells the Christian's body as a temple for the indwelling of the Father and the Son (1 Cor 6:19). The building of the temple is analogous to the erection of the Edification Complex of the Soul in the Christian (Eph 2:21-22). The building analogy symbolizes production of the priesthood (1 Pet 2:5). The color green corresponds to function of the priesthood in the Happiness of thanksgiving and praise, just as the color green symbolizes fruit bearing in the tree analogy. This includes songs and hymns of praise (Eph 5:19; Col 3:16).
BLUE - Redeemer Planet - Redeemed from Sin - Spirituality
The Redeemer Planet symbolizes the Christian, who is redeemed from the slave market of sin by the Blood of Christ on the Cross. With sins forgiven, the Christian is free to live the Spiritual life in the Filling of the Holy Spirit apart from the control of the Old Sin Nature (Rom 8:2-17). The Filling of the Holy Spirit enables the Christian to have fellowship with God (1 Jn 1:7). When fellowship is lost through sin, the Rebound procedure may be used to recover. The Holy Spirit is the Helper, Teacher, and Counselor of the believer (Jn 14:26; 15:26; Rom 8:26; 1 Jn 2:27). He is in constant contact with the Christian to lead him through every trial and exigency of life.
The Redeemer Planet is blue, which symbolizes Heaven. The blue planet with its white scooters, symbolizes the Resurrection Body of Christ with its scars. Just as the body of Christ was redeemed from the grave, the body of the Christian will be raised from the grave at the Rapture, which is called the Day of Redemption (Eph 1:13-14; 4:30).
The Spiritual life of the Christian begins at Salvation with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is the sanctifying ministry of the Holy Spirit in the Church Age believer at Salvation in which the Christian is entered into union with Christ, becomes a member of the Royal Family of God, and is given the Holy Spirit. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit includes the indwelling and filling of the Holy Spirit. The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit is a temple for the Indwelling of the Father and the Son. This is a sign of royalty. The Filling of the Holy Spirit is the control and power of the Holy Spirit in the soul of the Church Age Believer. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit provides every Christian with equal opportunity to execute the Spiritual Life (Gal 3:26-28). At Salvation every Christian also receives at least one Spiritual gift to fulfill the Spiritual life on this Earth.
INDIGO - God of the Covenants Planet - Disciple - Mystery Doctrine of the Church
The God of the Covenants (Ringed Planet) symbolizes a disciple of Christ. A Christian disciple is a serious student of the mystery doctrine of the Church, which is also called the New Covenant to the Church (1 Cor 11:25; Heb 9:15). This doctrine available only to the initiates is contained in the epistles to the Church. The God of the Covenants Planet corresponds to the color indigo, for a covering, because the planet is covered with rings. And those under a covenant are said to be covered by the covenant. Similarly, the mystery doctrine of the Church Age was hidden from previous ages (Eph 3:9).
The God of the Covenants Planet includes the authority relationship of the Marriage analogy between Christ and the Church. Whereas, the Moon symbolizes the love relationship of Christ and His Bride, the God of the Covenants symbolizes the Christian under the authority of the Marriage analogy with Christ. This begins with betrothal in this life (2 Cor 11:2). The only way to execute the Marriage relationship with Jesus Christ is by means of Bible Doctrine. Therefore, the Christian must be a disciple in order to learn the doctrine required to execute the Christian life and obey Christ, the Head.
The rings of the God of the Covenants Planet also symbolize the clothing of the believer in this life and in the Resurrection body. The clothing in this life includes the clothing of the soul with humility to learn and obey Bible Doctrine (1 Pet 5:5), and the clothing of sanctification (Rev 3:18). The future clothing in a Resurrection body will be based upon passing the tests in this life. Believers who reach Spiritual Rapport will have glorious clothing for their Resurrection bodies (1 Pet 1:8; Rev 3:5; 19:8).
VIOLET - Almighty God Planet - Royalty Family of God - Royalty
The Almighty God Planet as the largest and boldest planet symbolizes the sovereignty of the Royal Family of God. The planet symbolizes Jesus Christ, the King. The Church was called out to be the Royal Family of Christ (1 Pet 2:9). The Christian becomes royalty through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit at Salvation. And he is expected to learn to function as royalty in order to rule and reign with Christ in the Millennium (2 Tim 2:12; Rev 3:21; 20:6) and forever (Rev 22:5).
WHITE - Moon - Church, Bride of Christ - Sanctification, Reciprocal Love
The Moon symbolizes the Church, the Bride of Christ. The Moon has no light of its own but reflects the glory of the Sun, just as the Right Woman reflects the glory of the Right Man. The color white corresponds to sanctification and reciprocal love. The Moon symbolizes the Marriage Analogy of the Christian life in which the believer is betrothed to Christ and should become a pure virgin, without spot or wrinkle, to be the Bride of Christ in Resurrection Body (1 Cor 11:2; Eph 5:27-32; Col 1:22; Jude 24; Rev 19:7-8). The Christian responds with reciprocal love for God and Christ (2 Cor 5:14; Eph 3:17, 19; 5:26; Rom. 5:5; 1 Pet 1:8; 1 Jn 2:5; 4:17-19).
WHITE God the Father in Unapproachable Light, Love, Holiness
White symbolizes God the Father, who dwells in unapproachable Light (1 Tim 6:16). It also symbolizes God's Love (1 Jn 4:8) and Holiness (Rev 4:8).
VIOLET Royal Messiah Church (Royal Family)
The Lord Jesus Christ will be the Royal Messiah, the King and High Priest. He will rule from the Throne of God as King in a temporal function (Rev 22:3), and He will be the High Priest of the Church in a Spiritual function. The Church will rule and reign with Him (Eph 2:19; Heb 12:22, 28; Rev 22:5) and serve as the Priesthood (1 Pet 2:9; Rev 1:6; 5:10).
Consequently, therefore, you (Gentiles) are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow-citizens of the saints and members of the Family of God. (Ephesians 2:19)In the Church Age, the Gentiles are welcomed as fellow-citizens of the Kingdom of God. They were previously lawless unbelievers, like strangers and aliens from a foreign land. In Heaven, the Church will be members of the Family of God. They will not be considered Jews or Gentiles. They will live with God in the Spiritual Temple in the New Jerusalem. They will reign with the Lord Jesus Christ, the King. And, under the Lord Jesus Christ as the High Priest, they will be the only priesthood on the New Earth. The Family of God consists of the Father, the Son, and the Church (brothers and sisters). The Jews and Gentiles in Heaven will be like cousins of the Royal Family of God. The cousins will not live in the house with the Royal Family.
Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Himself being the cornerstone, (Ephesians 2:20)The Church is built "on the foundation of the apostles and prophets." The Old Testament prophets taught the doctrine about the future Savior and His work of Redemption. And the apostles provided the Church Age doctrine for the Church. The Lord Jesus Christ as the foundation cornerstone holds the building together. Race is not an issue in the Church. Jews and Gentiles lose their racial distinctions to become a new Spiritual species in Christ.
Veil City Wall
Indigo symbolizes the covering of the Spiritual Temple, the Veil of the Tabernacle, and the City Wall of the Heavenly Jerusalem.
In Whom the whole building, being joined together under construction, is growing into a holy temple in the sphere of the Lord (Ephesians 2:21)The collective Body of Christ (the Church) is analogous to a building in which individual Christians are joined together spiritually to form "a holy temple." The "holy temple" refers to the Church in the Heavenly Jerusalem (Gal 4:26; 2 Ti 4:18; Heb 12:22; 13:10-14), also called the "New Jerusalem" (Rev 3:12; 21:2, 10) and the "city of the Living God" (Heb 12:22).
In Whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the sphere of the Spirit. (Ephesians 2:22)Individual Christians are like the irregular stones that the masons of Israel fit together to construct a house. Each individual Christian is created with unique features as evidenced by individual Birth Charts. The Holy Spirit fits these individuals together to form a Spiritual temple in Heaven. The Spiritual temple will be the covering of the home of God the Father, the Lord Jesus Christ (High Priest), and the Church (Heavenly Priesthood). Just as the Holy Spirit forms a temple in the body of the individual Christian (1 Cor 6:19), the collective body, the Church, is also indwelt by the Holy Spirit to form a temple for the indwelling of the Father and the Son in Heaven.
There will be no physical temple in the Eternal State because the Lord God and the Lamb (Jesus Christ) will be its temple (Rev 21:22). Thus, the Spiritual Temple in Heaven is said to be "made without hands" (Mk 14:58; Acts 17:24). The Spiritual Temple in the New Jerusalem is symbolized by the Holy of Holies, which lies behind the Veil in the Tabernacle.
The New Jerusalem will be surrounded by a "great high wall" with twelve gates named after the twelve tribes of Israel (Rev 21:12). The purpose of the "great high wall" is to separate the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, which is like the capital, from the countries of the Jews and Gentiles. The Jews of Israel will live in a nation outside the city wall and be allowed to enter the gates to visit the city.
Resurrected Jews will be Righteous as denoted by the color, blue, but they will be separate and distinct from the Church, the Royal Family of God (Heb 13:10). They will live in cities (Heb 11:10, 16) in a nation (fatherland, country) that surrounds the New Jerusalem (Heb 11:14, 16). Jews will not come from the Church Age, but from the times of the Old Testament, Gospel period, Tribulation, and Millennium.
Resurrected Gentiles, like Job, will live in nations outside Israel on the New Earth. The Gentiles will serve Israel. They will not come from the Church Age, but from the times of the Old Testament, Gospel period, Tribulation, and Millennium.
YELLOW Glory of God
The Glory of God will illuminate the New Earth (Rev 21:23-26).
And the city has no need of the Sun nor of the Moon to shine upon it; for you see, the glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb. (Revelation 21:23)ORANGE Separation
The New Earth will be separated from the Lake of Fire and evil, lying, and unbelievers (Rev 21:27; 22:15).
RED Lake of Fire
The devil, fallen angels, and unbelievers will burn in the Lake of Fire in eternal Judgment (Rev 19:20; 20:10, 14, 15; 21:8).
