I decided to research if there was a particular colour that represented God. I thought that it would be red or perhaps green for the following reasons. Red would represent the blood of Christ, love and the tongues of fire. Green would represent nature, nourishment, growth and the creation of the world. But to my surprise, I realize that all colours represent God, they all have different significance and meanings. Most are very logical. You can see below a list. God is the foundation of the world and all its beauty and emotions. Knowing that colours are part of our life, each colour represents all that we see and all that we feel in our hearts. Below are examples of colors and how they may be perceived by people. The shades can be unlimited, just as the personal meanings are unlimited.
Red - Blood of Christ, warfare, consuming fire, Blood Covenant, forgiveness
Gold - Kingship, Glory, His holiness, liberty, Authority
Silver - Redemption, Word of God, Wisdom, God's refining process
Amber - The glory and presence of God
Purple - Royalty, Majesty, the Kingdom, inheritance, Authority
Orange - Fire of God, harvest, fruitfulness, warrior
White - Purity, innocence, salvation, surrender to God, overcomer, Holy, undefiled, Worthy, honor, righteousness
Blue - Grace, mercy, the River of Life, revelation, hope, God's passion
Green - Healing, restoration, new beginnings, prosperity, Throne Room, flourishing
Pink - Faithfulness, humility, intimacy, child-like faith, First Love
Black - Bondage, death to self, without light, judgment, sin
Rainbow - God's promises, Radiance of God
Quoted from the bible, of Genesis I, it said, “In the beginning when God created the universe…everything was engulfed in total darkness…Then God commanded, “Let there be light” – and light appeared. Then he separated the light from the darkness, and he named the light “Day” and the darkness “Night”. Evening passed and morning came that was the first day.”
From this first verse in the Bible, we see that God makes reference to light and darkness. This is the first reference to colour in the Bible. He created many other colours from the blues in the sky and waters to the greens of the plants and trees. These first references to colours in nature give us the spectrum of colour as we know it today. The seven colours in the rainbow, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet represent the seven days when God created the earth. They represent God’s colour spectrum. This color spectrum is the same as the color wheel that we learn about in modern day art class. I never thought of such a wonderful connection.
