Blue always attracts me to its depth. It makes me crazy. Whenever I sit on a rocks looking at the Bay of Bengal in the east or Arabian Sea in the west, I am deeply pulled to immense thoughts. Sitting on the shores of these seas, looking at the moving blue waves and following the huge cotton boulders moving in the blue sky beckon me towards the great creator of heaven. I sing with the Psalmist, “you stretch out the heavens like a tent, you build your upper rooms above the waters” (Ps.104:2). The blue color throws me crazy at the feet of the Eternal Lord
Blue Represents The Element Water
Blue, as per the Chinese traditions, is the color of the element water that brings life as well as death. I am a devoted fan of water because even though nothing on this whole wide world could ever be as smooth and yielding as water there is nothing that can truly withstand its might when it becomes a raging storm or a roaring wave. The torrents of water falling from the heavens flowing down the earth can move mountains with little struggle and its power can turn deserts into deep lagoons.
Blue Water Has Great Philosophy
Water is beautiful and in its blue color which manifests itself in a whole new way. Its blue color can teach us great philosophies. Through water blue has life and form, it has a temperature and a taste, and its variations are almost impossible to describe using mere human words. For how can a simple human tongue describe such a wonderful element using just words. Blue has greater symbolism beyond all human words.
Remember the eternal words of Jesus who promises to give the living water. “For the water that I shall give will become in them spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:14)
Blue In The Old Testament
The color blue is used quite extensively in the Old Testament to describe various meanings. The hangings in the holy places are blue used as a symbol of wealth. It is viewed as the heavenly color. In many places in the books of Exodus Numbers, Chronicles, Ezekiel and Esther we can find blue color mentioned to describe deep meanings.
Blue symbolizes heaven, holiness, purifying and solemnity. “In royal garments of blue and white, with a large golden crown an a cloak of purple and fine linen, Mordecai left the king’s presence” (Esther 8:15) We find the blue color is frequently associated with the tabernacle and temple furnishings.
“Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine woven linen and blue, purple, and scarlet thread; with artistic designs of cherubim you shall weave them.” (Exodus 26:1) Along with precious stones, the sky blue color of sapphire represents heavenly things. “And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone.” ( Ezek 1:26)
Blue In The New Testament
In the new testament blue is used in the symbols of water and sky representing purity and cleansing. John baptized with the water of Jordan. When Jesus was baptized and came up from the water, “the heavens opened and he saw he Spirit of God come down like a dove and rest upon him.” (Matthew 3:16)
Blue The Wonder Color
The blue color is a total wonder. The name denotes its absolute perfection. The feelings it evokes inside me always all are unique and unmatched. The forms in nature that the blue color represents are very precious to me. The color blue is unique and makes me crazy pulling me between heaven and earth.
