An Extremely Rare Rainbow-Colored Cloud Over Ethiopia

A couple of days ago, Esther Havens and I were working in Gondar in Northern Ethiopia… we got out of the car and looked up to see this incredible cloud structure overhead…

Time stood still as we sat there with eyes fixed upward, watching this irridescent orb slowly transform from one beauty to the next and I remain in awe at this display of the mystique of His Splendor.

[Psalms 19:1-4]  

The heavens declare the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech;

night after night they reveal knowledge.

They have no speech, they use no words;

no sound is heard from them.

Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,

their words to the ends of the world.

In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.

Perhaps, the majestic Rainbow of “Tisissat-Falls” is now beginning to float the Ethiopian skies to herald the good news? The greatest wonder is that we can see this phenomena and not wonder more.

In the year AD 312 an event occurred which utterly transformed the outward situation of the Church. As he was riding through France with his army, the Emperor Constantine looked up into the sky and saw a cross of light in front of the sun. With the cross there was an inscription: In this sign conquer. As a result of this vision, Constantine became the first Roman Emperor to embrace the Christian faith. On that day in France a train of events was set in motion which brought the first main period of Church history to an end, and which led to the creation of the Christian Empire of Byzantium
