Rainbow – The Hijacked Sign That Reminds Us of Noah’s Flood
The rainbow reminds us – or at least it should – of the biggest geological event between creation and our days.
The Flood was unique. Several geological features show that it was a real historical event. It even explains the ice age.
However, just like some people have attempted to usurp God’s place as Creator and replaced Genesis with an entirely naturalistic version of origins, so they have forgotten about the true meaning of the rainbow.
That includes Barack Obama, who celebrated the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision on allowing same sex “marriages” by displaying the colours of the rainbow in the white house.
He was not celebrating Genesis.
However, man cannot change that what God has decreed. He can only hurt himself in attempting to do so.
What many have forgotten is that God always wants that what is best for us. Genesis states that the initial creation was very good, and Luke’s Gospel shows us that He has “goodwill toward men” (Luke 2:14). According to Titus 3:4, “the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared” in Jesus Christ.
This does not mean that we are free to disregard the Bible’s clear teaching on marriage (one man, one woman), as many have done. “Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap”(Gal. 6:7).
After the devastating global Flood, God gave Noah and mankind the sign of the rainbow as a remembrance that He will never again punish sin by a worldwide flood.
God is merciful, but that does not mean we should try to challenge Him by misrepresenting the very sign that speaks of His mercy.
