I find it interesting that ‘science’ is willing to accept the notion of additional dimensions, or that something can come from nothing, yet it refuses to even entertain the notion that there may well be a Spirit world as the Bible claims. How can a quantum physicist seriously assert that he has demonstrated that sub-atomic particles can ‘pop’ into and out of existence, while in the next breath, deny any possibility of what he would term ‘the supernatural?’ Doing so is a contradiction, which means the quantum physicist either lacks the fundamental understanding necessary to properly apply the scientific method, or he is irrational — in which case he cannot apply the scientific method properly. The Truth is there is much more indirect evidence to suggest the Bible is correct than there is to support any theory of evolution. The Biblical significance of the colors blue and red are just one example, but there are many more.
Before I explain, let me ask you to take a moment and consider the color red in connection to political ideologies. With what political ideologies, what political movements is it most often associated? If I may, I’ll give you some help. Google “picture communist flag,’ or ‘picture NAZI flag,’ or ‘picture socialist flag’ and see what you get. Now consider this: until the post-Reagan years, elections in America used the color blue to represent the Republican victories in election reports. Before that time, the color red had been associated with the Democrat Party. We will return to the likely reason behind the switch in a bit, but for now, we need to understand that since the days of Woodrow Wilson, the Democrat Party has been the home of the Progressive/Communist/Socialist movement in America. These ideologies are all different branches of the tree of Secular Humanism, which worships man as his own god. Keep that in mind and follow along.
In Scripture, the color blue represents the heavenly realm, or the divine nature of Scripture. Interestingly enough, the robe worn by the Hebrew Priests was blue (Ex 28). The Priest represents the interceder; the one who stands and pleads the Peoples’ case before the Lord. Christ is the High Priest in heaven (Heb 4:14), There is much more to this, but the point is, in Scripture, blue is associated with heaven and Christ, as the High Priest in Heaven.
Now consider the significance of the color red in Scripture. It can mean many things, but let’s look at the Hebrew word for red first. The root word is ‘adom.‘ In the ancient Hebrew, words derived from the same root word have similar meanings, or relay related concepts. For example, ‘adom‘ is related to the Hebrew word ‘dam,’ which means blood. “Adam‘ means man, and ‘adumah‘ means ground, especially of reddish soil. Finally, and most importantly, ‘Edom” is the nation which came from Esau, who was named according to his reddish complexion. Now, let’s look at what the color red signifies in Scripture.
Aside from blood and war, it also stands for the flesh, or carnal nature, as well as sin. In Scripture, Esua represent the flesh, or carnal nature of man. The war between his twin brother, Jacob and Esua is representative of the battle between the flesh (i.e. non-believers) and the Spirit (i.e. God). There is another another Hebrew word that is appropriate right now. It is ‘selah,’ which means to ‘pause and seriously reflect on this.’
Now look at these colors in our world. Blue represents God’s Kingdom, while red represents man’s. Until recently, blue used to represent the ‘conservative’ side of American politics. ‘Conservative’ means ‘to preserve,’ even in the political sense. This nation was founded by Christians and on Biblical principles, so ‘conservatives’ are trying to hold on to God and God’s laws. But the Secular Humanist is trying to destroy this nation, and has been doing so mainly by trying to destroy the moral foundations of this nation. They do so almost entirely by trying to destroy the Christian religion. These Secular Humanists are represented by the color red, and it was not assigned to them. They intentionally chose it for themselves, though I do not think they realized what they were doing. By choosing red, they were announcing to the Spirit world that they are on the side of man and at war with God.
Now, do you remember when I said we would return to the color switch to represent Republicans in American elections? Ronald Reagan was the last President who openly and sincerely sought God’s will. He was also the last Republican to have the color blue assigned to his victories. Since he left office, the Republicans have been represented by the color red — because they no longer seek or defend God’s word. This does not mean the Democrats are now on God’s side. It was a warning to those who have eyes that the two Parties are one — at least as far as God is concerned. Both are at war with God, and that makes both Parties enemies of man’s God-given rights and liberties!
So, to the scoffer who worships science to the point where he will accept on faith the things he cannot prove, I say that the evidence of the Spirit world which you continually demand is right before your eyes. You just need to see with Spiritual eyes rather than trying to look through closed eyes. It is easy for a blind man to imagine any sort of fantasy, but once his eyes are opened, he sees the way things really are. So, maybe you should consider this: if you are going to accept unseen dimensions because they make your ‘existence without the need for God’ theory work, how might those same unseen dimensions explain the parts of the Bible you call ‘supernatural?’ Or better yet, why are those unseen dimensions perfectly natural when they support your rejection of God, but ‘supernatural’ if they might actually explain how everything in the Bible can be exactly as the Scriptures claim?
[NOTE: the Scriptural symbolism in these colors was established hundreds of years before Christ, yet they have held ever since that time. People like to ask for proof of prophecy. Well, here is something better: a flat-out assertion of Spiritual meaning that has not changed since time began. Even when men are free to choose a different color, they still choose that color which God says reflects their Spiritual side in the war between God and evil.]
Incidentally, in Scripture, bronze represents imitation of the Divine and hardness of heart…
Oh, and I almost forgot, there is another enemy of God who picked his own Spiritually significant colors. However, you’ll have to excuse me because you can’t find pictures of him illustrating those colors. Those who draw them tend to loose their heads, but his followers still imitate him today:
Muslims — especially Jihadis — dye their beards red in imitation of Muhammad, who was also fond of wearing a green robe. Now, in Scripture, green is usually associated with life — except in one instance. The ‘pale’ horse in revelation is actually better translated ‘sickly green,’ not pale (look it up in the original Greek). In this case, it represents someone who is dying — especially a Spiritual death. So, again, Muhammad chose wisely: red for his opposition to God and green for his Spiritual death as a result. And all of this written long, long before Muhammad chose those colors.
Oh, and lest anyone think this is a one-way coincidence and there are no examples of blue in relation the God’s Law, I seem to remember blue being used in exactly this way:
Now, before anyone objects about the color red in this uniform, remember I said red has many meanings in Scripture. Notice blue dominates (because the Word of God is primary — especially where our founding was concerned), but red can also represent redemption through suffering. We do not see red and blue mixed in the clothing of the pictures I posted above, but we do here. That is because this nation was founded on a covenant with God, and the Spiritual nature of these events was — once again — reflected in this world. Color is just one of the ways this happens, but it is clear, and it holds throughout history.
BTW: One last thing. In Scripture, white represents purity, being washed clean of past sin and even the Lord, Christ — Himself. That’s right, my friend, the colors of our flag were no Spiritual accident 🙂
