GENESIS 9:16

“When the rainbow is in the cloud, I will look at it, to remember the perpetual covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the land.”

AFTER THE FLOOD, GOD MADE A COVENANT WITH NOAH.

THE EARTH WAS DEVOID OF LIFE, AND SO NEEDED TO BE REPOPULATED, SO HE INSTRUCTED NOAH AND HIS PEOPLE TO REPRODUCE AND POPULATE THE EARTH. HE PROMISED THAT THE ANIMALS WOULD BE A FOOD SOURCE AND WOULD BE INSTILLED WITH AN INNATE FEAR OF HUMANS.

AFTER DEFINING ALL ASPECTS OF THE COVENANT, YAHWEH PROMISED THAT HE WOULD NEVER AGAIN COVER THE EARTH WITH FLOOD WATERS; THAT HE WAS GIVING A SIGN OF THIS PROMISE SO WE COULD ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS. HE CREATED A BEAUTIFUL COLOURFUL RAINBOW TO REPRESENT THIS PROMISE. (THE BAND OF COLOURS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GENDER/SEXUAL IDENTITY, OR ANY OF TODAY’S MISTAKEN REPRESENTATIONS. . .. ). THE RAINBOW REPRESENTS THE PROMISE IN THE COVENANT HE MADE WITH NOAH, THE PROMISE MADE NOT ONLY TO HUMANS, BUT TO THE ANIMAL WORLD AS WELL.  

MAY WE WALK IN A SPIRIT OF HUMILITY AND HUMBLE GRATEFULNESS THAT THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE TOOK SO MUCH COMPASSION ON FLAWED HUMANKIND, THAT NOT ONLY DID HE SPARE THEIR LIVES, AND ALLOW FOR A NEW BEGINNING, BUT HE ALSO PROMISED US THAT HE WOULD NEVER PUNISH US WITH A WORLDWIDE FLOOD AGAIN.
