“Resetting the Rainbow”
Rainbows are visually beautiful and technically amazing. As sunlight refracts through water in the atmosphere it separates into component colors which always appear in the same order; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet.
As its creator God has the right to signify whatever He wishes with this beautiful, ephemeral apparition. He purposed that rainbows should remind us that He will never again destroy the earth with a whole-earth flood.
Genesis 9:12-17 God said, "This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations; (13) I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth. (14) "It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud, (15) and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh. (16) "When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth." (17) And God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth."
Many individuals and organizations now use the rainbow as their emblem. The goals of some of these organizations stand in direct opposition to the Lord’s will. None of their symbolisms are as significant as the Lord’s.
Next time you see a rainbow recall the Lord’s message, not the messages of men.
