Introduction to Color of Yahweh

Welcome everyone,

This blog is totally dedicated to the topic with the name of this blog i.e. COLOR OF YAHWEH.


To start with let us look at the scriptures:

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them,” (Gen. 1:27)

So what does this imply. The scripture doesn’t say that God created animals in His own image. Instead it says “So God created man in His own image…” The Bible is the truth that we actually cannot fathom with this worldly brains or levels of knowledge.

So to go deep into this topic I would like to point out few things. It is very clear from the scriptures that:

  • God has two eyes
  • God has a nose
  • God has a mouth
  • God has two hands with 5 fingers in each hand
  • God has two legs
  • God also has hairs
  • God has two ears

So above is a list of similarities that we can think a little about. Apart from these similarities there are millions more of similarities which I cannot enlist in this single blog. BUT then I was confused, what is the color of God’s skin and hair. What was the color of God’s eyes. Was God tall like those tall central Africans or shorter like some others, what was his height like?

So lets just start slowly. Let us look back to scriptures again,

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them,” (Gen. 1:27)


Now this scripture also tells that there is a concept of male and female in heavenly abode, even though it is usually preached that the angels are not bound to these classifications.

When I was in high school I have read about many creatures that God has created. I read through all the encyclopedia and later on I came to see in Discovery channel how the creatures in the deep seas look like. I saw that as you go deeper and deeper in the sea, the creatures start loosing skin color pigments. Like even a big fish or crab will be transparent enough to reveal their internal organs. Now here’s the turning point.


Back in high school when we read through biology books we get to know that the creatures of the deep seas are transparent in nature because they do not get the sunlight. That’s what even the Discovery channel says. We can even explain this fact with the  green leaves example. We know from the fact available in science that the leaves tend to be green in color because they absorb all the colors except green which they reflect and our naked eyes catch it.


So now that would mean light of sun plays an important role in manifesting surface colors of creatures, plant or animals. As you may know that people go to beaches for sunbath for tanning their skin to make them darker.

Let us look into scriptures again. In Genesis 1:14 it says,

And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years,”

So this scripture tells us the beginning of sun, and other related facts like times, days, and years.

Also that means from that day (Fourth Day) the sun started pouring its light over the surface of earth and its creatures.

So it is very much understood that the trees began to be green and other animals started to get varying colors on their skin. Whereas the deep sea creatures missed this chance and their skin surface became transparent. So I hope you believe in this fact that our skin color tend to get darker when exposed to sun for longer duration.

So here’s my point:

  • God was there before the sun was made. Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
  • We were made very similar to our God. Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them,”
  • Our features like hand, legs, nose, eyes, etc. and even including our skin were similar to God.

So if God was before the sun was made, when there was no light to differentiate day and night, that would mean God’s skin was not exposed at all to sun rays just like the deep sea creatures. So we can suppose that the skin color of God was transparent. Even His hairs were transparent too as it lacked exposure to sun.

And that’s what I want to put to all of humanity that the God we pray had a transparent skin and hair. He is not bound to any color. And not only that His whole body is transparent. And because of which we can not see Him but can only feel Him when He is even near us. 

 “who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.” 1 Timothy 6:16

We cannot see God because light cannot even touch the skin of God.

This small work of research was carried out just out of interest to know and make others know that God may want all humanity to be clear what He is and what powers He carries with Him. He is incomparable. Please feel free to share your thoughts with me in this blog.

This is for the glory of our God the Father. Amen.
