Queen Elizabeth II, England’s longest-reigning British monarch, died at Balmoral Castle, her country estate in Scotland, on Thursday.

As people gathered around Buckingham Palace to cry, a beautiful double rainbow appeared in the sky.

“What an inspiring backdrop for a global and difficult time of grief and loss,” Pastor Jesse Bradley, leader of Grace Community Church in the Seattle area of ​​Washington, DC, told Fox News Digital.

Calling Queen Elizabeth II a “gift to all nations”, he said “God also gives us many timely gifts in creation, such as double rainbows, which go beyond what humans can plan or manufacture”.

The late Queen leaned on her Christian faith during the COVID-19 isolation, as Fox News Digital has already reported this.

Her faith has always been an important part of her life for many, many years.

“The Queen wrote her own speeches every Christmas and she always managed to convey that the person who inspired her was Jesus Christ.”

Pastor Bradley said rainbows are of great biblical significance.

“The rainbow has been a deep spiritual symbol for thousands of years,” he noted.

“After the Flood, Noah and his family saw a rainbow given to them by God as they tried to get through difficult circumstances.”

He also said, “The rainbow was a means by which God communicated to them that he still had a plan.”

“After the trauma and loss of the flood, there is still hope thanks to God.”

“The beauty and vibrancy of the colors of a rainbow point us to heaven and remind us that we have a gracious and benevolent Creator who is rich in mercy,” Pastor Jesse Bradley said.

Noting that “the rainbow, as described in the book of Genesis in the Bible, continues to be a means by which God communicates to all generations that there will never be another flood global,” he said it was “also an enduring symbol of honoring God in our daily lives.”

The flood came “because of the rebellion of mankind”, he said – and the rainbow “directs our hearts to God with an exhortation not to return to sin”.

Calling the Queen’s life “incredibly dignified”, he said she had led “so many people to the Word of God and to walk with Jesus”.

“She was a diligent Christian,” Calvin Robinson, an Anglican deacon at Christ Church in London, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” this week.

“The Queen wrote her own speeches every Christmas and she always managed to convey that the person who inspired her was Jesus Christ.”

Pastor Bradley said we have a reminder of future glory in the rainbow – and we have one in the life of Queen Elizabeth II.

“The beauty and vibrancy of the colors of a rainbow point us to heaven and remind us that we have a gracious and benevolent Creator, rich in mercy and worthy of our praise and adoration at all times,” did he declare.

“The Queen’s life, like the double rainbow, directs our attention to the goodness of God.”

“The heavens proclaim the glory of God,” he added, quoting the Bible’s Psalm 19:1.
