The meaning of colors in the Bible

Ezekiel 1:28

Revelation 4.3

"And whoever sat there was like one in terms of appearance Jasper stone and one Sarders, and a Rainbow was around the throne, like one in appearance emerald"

■ Colors in the Bible

There are a myriad of topics to study in the Bible, such as numbers. The subject of "colors" is one of the most overlooked but fascinating subjects in the Bible. Colors are often used in the Word of God to represent the different facets of God's character and promises.

Why Study Colors in the Bible?

So why take the time to learn about color in the Bible?

Various colors are used throughout the Bible to symbolize deep spiritual truths about God and humanity. If God uses them, it means that they have an important meaning to us.

Just like with numbers, colors tell us about Jesus Christ by symbolizing his person and works. Thus colors in the Bible have a symbolic, spiritual and prophetic meaning, which reveals to us the great truth about the plans and counsel of God.

We will learn how God woven colors throughout the Bible to paint a bigger picture of His revelation. Understanding the different meanings the colors symbolize can help us understand the Word of God better.

In addition, it can bring clarity to what God wants to speak to us personally.

Spiritual meaning of colors

The term "spiritual" may be a very vague one for many, it means many things and can refer to New Age, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and a whole host of other things. Therefore, when looking for a meaning in a color, it is important to understand the source of the interpretation. It is easy to be misled if we are not vigilant and careful about what information we consume and what source we draw from.

In our case, "spiritual" means that we are referring to biblical truths. The meaning of each color is defined by the word of God.

Prophetic meaning of colors

The prophetic meaning of color is very similar to the spiritual meaning of color. The main difference, however, is what prophecy means. What is a prophet, a prophecy and what is prophecy (Gift of prophecy).

• What is a prophet

The word "prophet" goes back to the Greek word "prophetes" and literally means: "one who brings up or proclaims something". A prophet receives direct revelation from God and transmits prophecy to people in the name of God under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, one could actually call a prophet the" mouthpiece of God ".

• What is a prophecy

A prophecy (or prophecy) is a prediction of something to come. True biblical prophecy has its origin solely in God. The gift of prophecy is reported in 1 Corinthians 12 and 14, among others.

• What is prophecy (gift of prophecy)

The gift of prophecy (also prophecy) is the gift of the spirit (1 Cor. 12:10), through which God gives the right word at the right time to reveal his will for the respective situation or future. Prophecy is a supernatural ability to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit and to speak the thoughts and counsel of God. This gift does not show itself primarily in foreseeing future events. Rather, it enables people to speak a message from God into a very concrete situation.

When God gives "prophetic impressions" it can happen in many ways; E.g. he speaks through a thought, an inner "knowledge", a "feeling", through a certain Bible text, through dreams, through "pictures" (visions), through seeing or hearing words / messages and others. Not every "inner impression" is from God. The origin of "impressions" can also be found in ourselves (our personal inner desires, fears, ideas etc.) lie or at least mix with divine impulses. And it is also possible that Satan tries to fake divine impulses to lead us astray. Therefore it is important that the prophetic word be tested (1Thes 5:21; 1Cor 14:29).

The gift of prophecy is an important gift from Jesus to his church today, as it was then, through which the Holy Spirit reveals God's speeches to us and thus the church can be built up. Used correctly, it turns out to be a tremendous blessing. We must not and do not want to disregard or even reject them ("Prophetisches Speechen

does not despise "1Thes 5,20), but strive for it (1Cor 14,1), accept it gratefully and deal with it in God's way.

Prophecy serves not only the congregation of Christians but also individuals.

The three main goals are (1 Cor. 14: 3-4):

• Build up = build up, strengthen, make more effective

• Admonish = promote, encourage, correct

• Consoling = encouraging

So when looking for the prophetic meaning of colors, one wants to know whether God is speaking to you personally in the here and now or about the future.

Find the symbolism: colors that indicate Jesus Christ

There are many examples of colors in the Bible that indicate Jesus Christ. A good example is the gate or door of the court of the tabernacle.

At the entrance to the forecourt there was a curtain, which was then also called a door. The fabric of the curtain consisted of four colors: white (linen), blue, purple (purple) and crimson (red).

Exodus 27:16

"At the entrance to the forecourt, however, there is said to be a curtain, 20 cubits long, made of yarns of blue (blue) and red purple (lavender) and crimson (red) and twisted linen (white) in colored weaving, plus four pillars on their feet"

Jesus called himself the door (Jn 10: 9) and these four colors symbolize the four main meanings of his life. For this reason we also have four

Gospels, because each gospel focuses on one of these aspects of service. Furthermore, a being appears in Ezekiel 1:10 who has four faces, which in turn indicate these four aspects of the life of Jesus. In summary in a tabular overview:

• purple (lavender) | Gospel of Matthew | messianic king | Face of the lion

• Crimson Red | Gospel of Mark | our sacrifice | Face of the bull

• White | Gospel of Luke | Sinless Son of Man | Face of man

• Blue | Gospel of John | messenger from heaven | Face of eagle

The four colors mean that Jesus, the Son of God, was sent from heaven to earth to be born as a human being without sin and to die for us as a substitute sacrifice at the end of his earthly life. Through his resurrection from the dead and his return to heaven, he becomes (messianic) King of the whole world exalted, before whom every knee will bend.

● The colors of salvation

  • Black as a representation of sin (Rom 2:23)
  • Red stands for the blood of Jesus (Rom 3:35)
  • Blue for baptism (Mk 16:16)
  • White stands for purity (Ps 57: 1)
  • Green for spiritual growth (2 Peter 3:18)
  • Yellow for the sky (city of gold; Rev 21: 18-21)

Meaning of colors in dreams

God speaks to us in dreams, like he spoke to Joseph, for example, and sometimes certain colors are used to convey something to us. Dream interpretation is a very special topic that goes beyond the symbolism of colors.

In the case of dreams, the interpretation for the dreamer can be very personal. A symbolism can mean one thing at first and something different at another time. The accompanying circumstances are decisive here.

This is why Joseph was clear when he said:

Exodus 40: 8

"They replied to him [Joseph]: We have had a dream and there is no one to interpret it! Joseph said to them, Do not interpretations come from God? Tell me!"

Understanding biblical symbolism is important to us when looking for interpretation. This is always based on the Word of God and helps to put things together that the Holy Spirit shows us.

When highlighting a color in a dream or vision, I recommend doing the following steps to understand its meaning:

Write down the dream and note the distinctive colors that stood out (E.g. blue house).

See the Bible for the meaning of this color. Take notes, and when something becomes apparent in your mind, write it down. Pray about the dream and ask God to give clarity and revelation about the color and the object associated with the color. When you receive something from the Lord, write it down; because it can be of relevance again later. Share the dream and color you saw with mature brothers and sisters in Christ. Maybe even with your leadership or a prophet; with someone you trust and who can help you with this matter. Tell them how you are feeling and ask for their thoughts and advice. Pray about what the color means to you and take action when it seems like the Lord is speaking to you.

The meaning of the colors in the rainbow

Rainbow consist of seven colors (red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, dark blue, violet; Genesis 9: 8-17) and are one of the most beautiful events in our heaven. But these atmospheric phenomena are not only beautiful to look at. Rainbow symbolize something very beautiful and precious for our faith.

We find the rainbow in Genesis (after the flood), in Ezekiel (Vision of the throne room of heaven) and in Revelation (across the throne room).

It is interesting to note that the colors of the rainbow come from white light (Keep this in mind as you read the following verses).

Genesis 9:13

"I set my bow in the clouds, it should be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth"

The meaning of the rainbow in Genesis: covenant, promise, faithfulness of God

Ezekiel 1:28

"Just like the arch that appears in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the sheen all around. Such was the appearance of the appearance of the glory of the Lord. When I saw her, I fell on my face; and I heard the voice of one who was talking"

Ezekiel's Meaning of the Rainbow: God's Glory and Majesty

Revelation 10.1

"And I saw another strong angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud, and a rainbow was on his head; and his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire"

The meaning of the rainbow in Revelation: God's power and radiation (even his servants, the angels, show them)

Revelation 4.3

"And whoever sat on it looked like a jasper stone and a sardis stone; and there was a rainbow around the throne, which was like an emerald in appearance"

Here we see a green rainbow!

Every mention of rainbow in the Bible is directly related to the power, faithfulness and glory of God!

Now that we've looked at the rainbow as a whole, let's look at the individual colors that the Bible speaks of.

Colors of the precious stones in the Bible

We won't go into details on gemstones here as this is a study in itself and we'll be posting a separate post about it elsewhere.

Numerous types of gemstones are mentioned in the Bible. Here are just a few: agate, carnelian, emerald, jasper, sapphire, topaz, onyx, beryl.

The problem that arises from studying the color of gemstones in the Bible is that we cannot always be 100% sure which color refers to which stone. Some are easy to pinpoint, others less so. Here are two examples:

Onyx is one of the most frequently mentioned stones in the Bible. Most people know that this is a black stone. But the reality is that not all onyx is black. There are white onyx stones and other different colors.

The second example is sapphire. Sapphires are usually blue, but sapphires come in different colors such as yellow, pink, and green.

When it comes to understanding Bible gemstones and their colors, please study the Word of God carefully.

Colors in the Book of Revelation

The book of Revelation is full of symbolism. This sometimes makes it difficult to understand the meaning of certain parts of the book. Colors are common in Revelation. More than any other book in scripture. We will briefly discuss these colors and provide a listing of the colors used in the book of Revelation.

Throne room of heaven (Rev 4,3) Red, green, rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, dark blue, violet; Genesis 9,8-17)

The four riders (Rev 6: 1-8) white (first horse; victory), red (second horse; war & bloodshed); Black (third horse; famine); Light green-gray (fourth horse; death & epidemic)

Jesus Christ & the saints (Rev 19: 13-15) red (blood-dipped robe), white (pure canvas)

Army of God: The Elders (Saints), Angels & Horse

Elders (Rev 4,4) white (vestments), gold (victory wreaths)

Saints (Rev 7,9) white (vestments)

Angels (Rev 10: 1) rainbow

Horse (Rev 19:11) white

The enemy of God

Dragon (Rev 12: 3) red

Whore (Rev 17.4) purple (lilac), scarlet & gold

The new Jerusalem (Rev 21 & 22) multicolored

Celestial bodies (Rev 6,12-13)

Sun (black) & moon (red)

There are three basic colors in nature: red, yellow and blue, which are based on the mixture of light colors. These cannot be made by mixing other colors. You can mix these together or with black and white to get almost all colors. The three basic colors represent the trinity of God.

blue

Importance: Heaven, heavenly character, eternity, priesthood, fidelity, favor, revelation, knowledge, water, stream of life, Israel

Bible passages: Hes 1.26; 10.1; Joh 4,13-14; Rev 21: 6; Eze 47: 1-12

Blue is the color of the sky, so the color has a direct link to the sky. Blue was used in the tabernacle (Ex.25.4; 26.1.4) and in the temple (2Chr 2.7.14). The whole tabernacle was "a shadow of heavenly things" (Ex 26:28). Blue was used for the priests 'clothing and was used to line the hem of the priests' robes (Exodus 28: 5-6).

Just as green takes on a symbolic meaning through vegetation, we find the same with blue in water.

purple

• Importance: God's kingdom, dignity, power, fame, majesty, priesthood, intercession, humility, repentance

• Bible references: Prov 31:22; Hl 3.10; 7.6; Dan 5,7.16.29; Mt 27.28; Mk 15.17.20; Lk 16.19; Rev 17.4; 18.12.16

Purple is the general name for nuances between blue and red and a color that appears in the Bible in two different shades (blue & red purple; Ex 25.4), but both colors are usually mentioned in direct connection.

In ancient times, purple was the most valuable and intense dye used to dye fabrics and wool. The color lies between red, blue and purple and was obtained with great effort from the secretion of a snail that was found in the Mediterranean region. In each case, it depended on the additions and the length of the processing whether you wanted to achieve a red or more blue-violet hue.

Purple is the classic royal color and the symbolic meaning of the color purple is derived directly from the preciousness of the dye and its historical use.In ancient times, fabrics dyed with purple were mainly reserved for rulers. These colors were so expensive that they were usually only used for royal garments (Ezek 23.6, Est 8.15; Dan 5.29; Lk 16.19) and for priestly clothing (Exodus 28.5-6.8.15.28.31.33.37 ), the tabernacle (Exodus 25.4; 26.1.4.31.36; 27.16) or for curtains in the temple (2Chr 2,6.13; 2Chr 3,14).

The New Testament tells that a purple cloak was put on Jesus during the interrogation. He should be mocked as "King of the Jews" (Mt 27.28; Mk 15.17-20).

a)blue purple (lilac / violet)

• Importance: Kingship, royal house, priesthood, majesty, royal rule, commandments (Numbers 15: 38-40), heavenly character, reign with Christ in heavenly places, sonship, inheritance, wealth, abundance

• Bible references: Ex 25.4; 26,1.4.31.36; 27.16; 28.5-6.8.15.28.31.33.37; 35,6.23.25.35; Ri 8,16.26; 2Chr 2,7.14; 3.14; Est 1.6; 8.15; Eze 23.6; Joh 19,2)

It is interesting that this color is made by combining two colors (red & blue). By "blue purple" we mean a dark purple. Blue purple is an official color of the tabernacle and the priestly robes of Aaron (Exodus 26: 1; 28: 15-33). As such, purple represents kingship and priesthood.

b) red purple (red-purple)

• Importance: Christ's quality as king, Christ's blood, new covenant, new wine, cup of the new covenant

• Bible references: Ex 25.4; 26,1.31.36; 27.16; 28.5-6.8.15.33; 35,6.23.25.35; 2Chr 2,7.14; 3.14; Est 1.6; 8.15; Eze 37.16; Lk 22.20; 1 Corinthians 11.25

Red purple is also an official color of the tabernacle and the priestly robes of Aaron (Exodus 26: 1; 28: 15-33). As such, this color also represents royalty and priesthood.

red

• Importance: Blood of Jesus, redemption, atonement, sacrifice, life, human (adam, odem), covenant, love, fire, courage, war & warfare, boldness, judgment & anger

• Bible references: Ex 12.7; Leviticus 17:11; Heb 9.22; 1Petr 1,18-19; 1 John 1,7; Mt 26.28; Ex 24.8; Heb 9.18; Rev 6: 1-8; Near 2,3; Isa 63: 1-3; Rev 6: 12-13; Acts 2.20

Red is a primary color and cannot be made by mixing other colors. "Adom" is the Hebrew root word for Adam, Esau and Edom and means "red earth". Red is a warm color. Embers are red. Red is the color of blood and is associated with life.

First of all, red symbolizes the blood of Jesus Christ. Because of the blood, red symbolizes salvation, because through the blood of Jesus we are redeemed from sin. We have atonement through the blood of Jesus. Because of the blood of Jesus that was shed for us, red can also be used to speak of sacrifice. The Bible says that life is in the blood, so sometimes red is used as a symbol of life. Red is the color that represents fervent love, as in God's love for us or our love for him. Fire is said to be red-hot so that red represents the fire of God that cleanses. In addition, red stands for courage and war or warfare. Red is often referred to as the power color.

Crimson, scarlet, blood red

• Importance: Christ's earthly glory (crimson = worm), blood of Jesus, cross, kingship, power, government, sin, sinfulness, prosperity

• Bible references: Ex 25.4; Hi 25.6; Ps 22.7; Dan 5: 7, 16, 29, Mt 27: 28, Mk 15: 17, 20, John 19: 2; Rev 17.4; Isa 1:18; 2Sam 1,14, Prov 31,21, Klgl 4,5, Revelation 18,12,16

The name "crimson" is of Persian origin and means "worm". The worms of the Kermes scale insect were dried and pulverized. Processing the powder resulted in the red dye.

This color was used in the tabernacle: (Ex 25.4; 26.1.31.36; 27.16; 28.5-8.15).

In Isaiah 1:18 we read: "If your sins are (red) like crimson, they shall be white like snow." Revelation 17, verses 3 and 4, speaks of a woman dressed in crimson and scarlet, sitting on a scarlet beast.

Jeremiah 22:14 and Ezekiel 23:14 speak of a red color (vermilion).

orange

• Importance: Courage, passion, strength, fire, God's presence, purification, harvest, strength

• Bible references: Rust = corruption, transience (Ezek 24,6; Mt 6,19-20), iron ore = rebellion (Jer 6,28), ceramics (Ps 31,12; Hos 8,8), fire = purification, power of God (1Petr 1.7; Heb.12.29)

The color orange is not mentioned in the Bible. To understand the prophetic meaning of color, we can look at other symbols in Scripture that are orange. This is how we get a meaning of color.

Some elements or symbols from the Bible that are orange: rust, iron ore, ceramics, fire (multicolored).

green

• Importance: Life (especially new life, birth), eternal life, throne room, resurrection, new beginning, growth, freshness, spring, blooming, hope, restoration, kindness, prosperity (Jer 17: 8)

• Bible references: Jer 11:16; Isa 15,6; Eze 17.24; Ps 92: 13-14; Hos 14,8; Rev 4.3

When it comes to the color green, we automatically think of life and growth. And for a good reason. Plants, trees, flowers and other plants are associated with the color green. It is like the picture in Psalm 1,3 "It is like a tree, planted by watercourses, which bears its fruit in its time, and whose leaves do not wither ...".

From what we can learn in the scriptures, we know that the rainbow represents "covenant" and "green life / growth". This paints a picture of God's eternal blooming glory and majesty (Rev 4: 3).

Yellow or yellow-gold

• Importance: Glory of God, presence of God, light, shine, fire (multi-colored), anointing oil, anointing, olive oil (yellow color), faith of the saints, disease (leprosy)

• Bible references: Dan 10; Eze 1,4.27; 8.2; Exodus 30: 22-25; 1 Sam 16:13; Ps 92.10; Leviticus 13:30; Heb 12.29

Yellow is not mentioned often in the Bible. For this, yellow and gold are often used synonymously in the Bible.

Yellow is related to fire, which in turn is always related to the cleaning process.

Olive oil is naturally yellow in color and was used to make anointing oil (Ex. 30: 22-25).

gold

• Importance: Divinity, majesty, glory, splendor, abundance, royalty, New Jerusalem, wealth

• Bible references: Genesis 2,11-12; Sach 6: 10-11; Eze 7.14; Rev 21:18

Gold is a precious metal. To understand the symbolic meaning of gold, one has to look at it as a whole, not just as a color. Gold is mentioned many times in the Bible. That's a lot of gold. From this we can see how diverse this element is and how this color is only one side of the understanding of its symbolism.

Some important things to know about gold that are of great spiritual importance:

1. Pure gold does not tarnish or react

2. Pure gold never needs to be purified

3. Pure gold never ages

4. Our body contains approximately 0.2 milligrams of gold for a person weighing 70kg; most of it is in the heart and blood.

5. In order for gold to be refined, it must be heated

Gold symbolizes the glory of God revealed in His righteousness, holiness, truth, wisdom, power and love. This can be seen from the fact that in the interior of God's dwelling (initially the tabernacle and later the temple in Jerusalem) almost only gold could be seen (Ex.25; 26.15-30; 30.1-6; 1 Kings). The New Jerusalem, the Holy City, of which it is said: "And she had the glory of God", is made of pure gold (Rev 21:11, 18). The golden cherubim on the atonement cover of the ark are therefore called "cherubim of glory" (Heb. 9: 5).

silver

• Importance: Atonement, ransom, redemption, trial, purification, purity

Gray: Age, dignity, fame, honor, humility, repentance

• Bible references: Exodus 30: 11-16; Leviticus 5.15; 4Mo 3,44-51; 7.12-88; Ps 66:10; Dan 2,32-33; 1Petr 1,18-19

Like gold, silver is a precious metal. Just like gold, silver must be viewed as a whole, not just because of its color. Most of the time Scripture talks about silver, it is about the metal, not the color.

Jesus was betrayed and sold for 30 pieces of silver. Silver also had the meaning of atonement in the Old Testament (Exodus 30: 11-16).

In the Old Testament, a silver shekel was collected from all men and used for repairs to the tabernacle and temple in Jerusalem. This was called the shekel of salvation. During the Passover festival, the Jews use four silver chalices. Each cup represents an aspect of salvation from Egypt.

In the tabernacle, the foundations of the holy of holies were made of blocks of silver (our foundation of faith = redemption through JESUS!) The connecting nails (or hooks) of the individual pillars were made of silver and the holding rods and hooks for the linen cloths that separated the camp from the hut, were also made of silver (Lev. 5:15).

Silver flags, silver bells, cymbals or trumpets remind us: He has paid! We thus announce our salvation loudly and visibly. We agree with the Word of God "You know that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold ... but with the precious blood of Christ! As a lamb without faults and without spots" (1Petr 1,18-19) . Jesus paid the price! Silver reminds us of perfect redemption and the full price that Jesus paid, so it is a wonderful picture of atonement and redemption.

White

• Importance: Salvation, purity, holiness, bride of Christ, righteousness, righteousness, sun, light, spiritual insight; Wisdom, Holy Spirit, Shalom, creative freedom

Bible passages: Dan 7.9; Mk 9.3; Joh 20:12; Rev 2:17; 3.4; Ps 51.7; Isa 1:18; Rev 7: 9-14; Ecclesiastical 9.8

White is the brightest of all colors and stands for purity, holiness, righteousness and redemption (Ps 51: 7; Isa 1:18). Light is not yellow, but white and is represented by white. The bride of Christ is pure and flawless. The saints of God wear white robes (canvas), reflecting righteous deeds (Rev 19: 8, 14). In Revelation we see that Christ wears a white robe (Dan 7: 9; Rev 2:17; 20:11). We find many verses in which Jesus, angels and the saints are dressed in white. The Holy Spirit is symbolized as a dove. White hair is called a symbol of wisdom.

black

• Importance: divine secrets, secret plan, depth, fear of the Lord, judgment, night, mourning, death

• Bible references: Ex 20.21; Ps 18:11; Genesis 15.12; Ps 97.2; St. 1.5

Similar to white, we have some understanding of what black means. Mostly because it's seen as the opposite of white and light. When we think of black, we think of darkness.

But darkness is not always associated with evil. God uses the darkness to hide. But God is omnipresent, He is everywhere (Ps 139: 8). Light symbolizes his presence, his revealed word. The darkness symbolizes his presence, which is his hidden word.

brown

• Importance: Wood, humanity, earthenware vessels, earth, harvest, sowing, humility, sowing

• Bible references: Genesis 30: 24-42

Brown has a lot of symbolic meanings. Color is mentioned four times in the Bible, and all mentions are in Genesis 30.

Since brown is only mentioned in one chapter, we can get a better meaning of the color of brown objects (like orange).

For example, wood is brown. Wood symbolism is associated with salvation. Here are some key points about wood.

1. Fall of Man - tree - wood

2. Noah's Ark - wood saved mankind

3. The ark was made of wood

4. The cross was made of wood and led to the salvation of mankind

copper

• Importance: Humility before God, repentance, righteousness

• Bible references: Deuteronomy 8.9; 1 Kings 7: 13-47; 2Chr 4

In the Bible, copper and bronze are often referred to as "ore". In some passages in the Bible, bronze may be used instead of copper.

Ore is often associated with fire in God's Word.

All sacrificial devices were made of copper or coated with copper. In the tabernacle the feet, nails and rings of the pillars in the forecourt (Ex 27), the basin (Ex 30:18), the covering of the burnt offering altar and its utensils (Ex 27:31) were made of copper; in the temple of Solomon the brazen Sea, pillars, chairs, kettles and other equipment.

Copper also served as a means of payment (Mt 10.9). Ezekiel 27:13 speaks of the trade in copper utensils.

Ezra 8:27 speaks of fine copper that is "precious as gold".

Ore, or copper, is a picture of the righteousness shown in judgment.

bronze

• Importance: Strength, durability

• Bible references: 1Chr 15.19; 1 Kings 7.15-47

Bronze is an alloy (compound) of copper and tin. Extremely tough and durable, it was often used on items in the temple and the tabernacle. Many components and devices of the Temple of Solomon were made of bronze; E.g. the two columns "Jachin" and "Boaz", the large basin carried by twelve cattle and the tank wagons (1 Kings 7: 15-47).

In Revelation 1:15 are the feet of the Son of Man "bronze, as if they were glowing in the furnace".
