This evening after a wonderfully relaxing day of worship and rest, the sky was punctuated by a spectacular sunset. However, there was one addition to the evening sky that I had not seen before. My son termed it a “golden rainbow”. It was a streak or beam of light that emanated from the western horizon sunset and then progressed completely across the sky over our heads and ending in the eastern sky. I had seen beams of light before coming from behind the clouds as if Jesus is returning. However, I have never seen a particularly focused beam such as this. Additionally, I had never seen any of those beams of light stretch across the entire sky. It was truly amazing. It reminded me of the Bible verse below.

“He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.

They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” — Acts 1:7-11
