Ezekiel 1:28 Like the appearance of the rainbow that is in the cloud on a day of rain, such was the appearance of the brightness all around

Ezekiel 1:28 Like the appearance of the rainbow that is in the cloud on a day of rain, such was the appearance of the brightness all around. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Jehovah. And when I saw it, I fell on my face and I heard the voice of someone speaking.

Ezekiel 1:28 Like the appearance of the rainbow that is in the cloud on a day of rain, such was the appearance of the brightness all around. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Jehovah. And when I saw it, I fell on my face and I heard the voice of someone speaking. (Recovery Version)

The rainbow around God’s throne also signifies that Christ became wisdom to us from God: both righteousness and sanctification, and redemption (Revelation 4:3; Ezekiel 1:26-28). The three primary colors of the rainbow are blue (the color of the sapphire throne, which signifies God’s righteousness—v. 26; Psalms 89:14), red (the color of the sanctifying fire, which signifies God’s holiness—Ezekiel 1:4, 13, 27; Hebrews 12:29), and yellow (the color of the glowing electrum, which signifies God’s glory—Ezekiel 1:4, 27; Hebrews 1:3). In eternity as the New Jerusalem (a city whose foundations have the appearance of a rainbow—Revelation 21:19-20), we will be a rainbow to testify of God’s faithfulness to carry out His new covenant in making us exactly the same as He is as righteousness, holiness, and glory; this will display Christ as God’s multifarious wisdom through us to the whole universe (vv. 10-11). The spiritual reality of this rainbow should be manifest in the church today—we need to allow God to fill us with His presence of righteousness by giving Him the full opportunity to work in us as the fire of holiness for His splendor of glory through us (1 Corinthians 1:30). The rainbow is a sign of God’s faithfulness in keeping His covenant that there will be no more judgment of death; we must live under the new covenant and not believe in any failure, weakness, darkness, or negative thing; we are the covenanted people, and we have a verse of promise to meet every situation (Lamentations 3:22-23; Romans 8:1; 2 Corinthians 12:9; 2 Timothy 1:10; 2:1; Jude 24; 1 John 1:9; 1 Corinthians 1:9).
