I have always loved rainbows. God has used them in various ways in my life, and I treasure every time that I see one.
Because of the LGBTQ community that has adopted the rainbow for their own use, many look down on the rainbow, but God had the rainbow first.
In Genesis 9:13-17 it is used as the sign of the Covenant with God. It reads, “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. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.”
God gave us the rainbow to always remind us that he loves us. Years ago, a group of ladies, myself, and one older gentleman about 80 years of age were going to go to a prison to sing. Because we were mostly women we questioned if we were supposed to go. I asked the Lord to show us, and he did. Almost immediately three different rainbows appeared in the sky. I saw them first and told the rest of the group. We were all certain that God was showing us his answer to going, and it was a definite “yes.”
Then as we pulled into the prison property and parked a strange event occurred. The rainbow came inside of our vehicle. It was like a translucent soap bubble with all different colors glowing and radiating through the car. It was a moment of knowing that I will always remember. It was as if God himself stepped into that car.
God has a rainbow around his throne (Revelation 4:3). I truly believe it is there as a reminder of the covenant he made with man.
An ungodly group may identify with a rainbow, but it is not the rainbow of God’s covenant. I choose to use rainbows and choose to be reminded of what God has done and what He is still doing for me and for you. I will not let Satan steal it from God or me. I pray that you do the same.
