A Stunning Rainbow Halo Surrounded by ‘Sun Dogs’ Brightens Croatian Skies

This dazzling and beautiful optical phenomenon, known as a Rainbow Halo is indeed the handiwork of our Heavenly Father.

According to scientists, the crystals cause the light to be refracted and reflected, leading to the rainbow coloured circle appearing around the sun.

The ice crystals responsible are suspended in clouds high in the upper troposphere. However, in colder weather they can float closer to the ground. When this happens, the crystals behave like prisms, refracting the light.

SCRIPTURE SAYS:

And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth. -Genesis 9:12-17 (KJV).

Zlatko Orbanic in the city of Pula in Croatia sent in this photo of a stunning rainbow halo. It shows a circular 22-degree halo surrounding a setting sun. Within the halo itself, on either side of the sun, you can see two prominent parhelia, also called sun dogs. Also within the halo, above the sun, you’ll see a hint of what’s called an upper tangent arc. And above that is a circumzenithal arc.

All of these phenomena are considered frequent halos by experts in sky optics. Les Cowley of Atmospheric Optics says:

Halos appear in our skies far more often than do rainbows. They can be seen on average twice a week in Europe and parts of the United States. The 22° radius circular halo and sundogs (parhelia) are the most frequent.

As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake. – Ezekiel 1:28 (KJV).

Regardless of how scientists explain this event, all things are created by our Heavenly Father.  When we look to the bible and the meaning of the rainbow and the sun, we see that JESUS represents the sun, the light, the truth for all.  The rainbow a sign of God’s covenant, and a symbol of his righteous judgment. There is more about this in the prophecy section below.

”..keep that which is avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so-called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith…” -1 Timothy 6:20-21 (KJV). 

“It’s very common. The thing is that people never look up.”

In the Faithful Service of Jesus Christ,

PROPHECY:

And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke (Acts 2:19 KJV).

”..keep that which is avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so-called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith…” -1 Timothy 6:20-21 (KJV). 

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork -Psalm 19:1 (KJV).

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee – Isaiah 60:1 (KJV). 

The Meaning of the Rainbow

  • The rainbow is a covenant of God, and was given after judgment and the baptism of the earth.  It is an everlasting promise that God will never flood the earth again.  But it is also a symbolic representation that God is the one who judges all the world, and the HE and HE ALONE controls earth.  He is the ARTIST for all the marvels in the sky, and despite “SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATIONS,” the rainbow is always a representation of GOD, NOT SCIENCE. 

And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth. -Genesis 9:12-17 (KJV).

As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake. – Ezekiel 1:28 (KJV).

And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. – Revelation 4:3 (KJV).

And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: –  Revelation 10:1 (KJV).
