What is a rainbow?
A rainbow is defined as: an arc of colors formed by the sun shining through moisture.
Did you know that a rainbow is a symbol of a promise between you and God? If you’re familiar with the very true Bible story of Noah and the Flood, (Genesis 6-9) then you might remember that at the end of the flood God made a covenant with Noah. The sign or symbol that the Lord chose to represent this covenant is a rainbow.
“When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh…God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.” (Genesis 9:14-15,17 ESV) (emphasis added)
Isn’t the Lord merciful and gracious!?! Let us give thanks and praise Him for His mercy!
While the rainbow is and will always be a beautiful symbol of God’s grace and love for us, in today’s culture man has perverted the symbolism of a rainbow to symbolize the perversion, defiling, abomination and destruction of God’s divine design for a family.
I pray that you will not be swayed by the wickedness of today’s culture. Instead I pray that you will pick up God’s Holy Word, read it for yourself and live your life accordingly. “[S]o that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.” (Ephesians. 4:14)
Thanks for reading. Until next time…
