“And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.”

Genesis 9:11 KJV

Most people when they see a rainbow, they just look in awe, an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, extremely powerful, or the like: in “AWE of GOD,” you should be !! This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations. God is talking about the Noahic Covenant, His promise not to use a universal flood to judge the world again. In the bible He says, “This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.” Genesis 9:12-15 KJV Interestingly, a rainbow is primarily mentioned in only the First Book, Genesis, and the Last Book, Revelation, in the bible. A reference to a rainbow is also found in the first chapter of the book of Ezekiel. In the Genesis account, a rainbow appears right after the great worldwide flood brought to remove sinful and evil-minded man from the earth. The rainbow symbolized God’s mercy and The Covenant He made with Noah (representing mankind) not to destroy the world in such a way again. In Ezekiel, his first vision from God, known as the “Wheel in the middle of a Wheel” vision, the prophet Ezekiel compares the Glory of God he saw with a rainbow. In the bible it says, “And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.” Ezekiel 1:26-28 KJV  Rainbows appear again in the prophetic book of Revelation, which foretell the end of man’s rule on the earth and the coming of Jesus to set up his Kingdom. The first mention of a rainbow in Revelation appears when the apostle John uses it to describe the glory and power of God on his throne. The bible says, “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.” Revelation 4:1-3 KJV  The second mention of a rainbow occurs when John describes the look of a mighty Angel. It says , “And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:” Revelation 10:1 KJV  So what about the colors in the rainbow ? What do they mean or symbolize ? The root meanings of the colors of the rainbow in scripture is the basis for recognizing the beauty of God’s grace production.  The sequence of colors in the rainbow matches the production of the seven days of re-creation, and everything in creation conforms to the Holiness, or Sanctification, of God.  The rainbow is produced by sanctification of white light, and all of creation conforms to the colors of the rainbow. Where there is light, there is God; but the true interpretation of that light is only possible by means of faith. Every scene of Life has meaning in the fulfillment of the Plan of God in the life of the believer. God is not the author of confusion.  And the colors in the scenes are always consistent with the definition from the Word of God. This is the Plan of God in the life of the believer.  Since God has laid out your life’s plan in the bible from Genesis to Revelation, and  from one end of the Rainbow to the other, now is the time to put your Trust and Faith in Jesus Christ today, as He is the one the paid the penalty for your sins when He died on the cross so that you could have the free gift of eternal life. And He is the “POT of GOLD” at the end of the Rainbow.  Amen
