GOD's RAINBOW

 

Genesis 9:13

King James Version

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, 

and it shall be for a token of a covenant 

between me and the earth.


The rainbow, is GOD's rainbow.

Used, according to His purpose.

We found THREE instances wherein GOD used a rainbow:


ONE, as testimony of His covenant with Noah, and his sons.

In total contrast to how the world is using it now.

Here's what the Bible says:

Genesis 9:8-17

King James Version

8 And God spake unto Noah, 

and to his sons with him, saying,

9 And I, 

behold, 

I establish my covenant with you, 

and with your seed after you;

10 And with every living creature that is with you, 

of the fowl, 

of the cattle, 

and of every beast of the earth with you; 

from all that go out of the ark, 

to every beast of the earth.

11 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.

12 And God said, 

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:

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, 

and it shall be for a token of a covenant 

between me and the earth.

14 And it shall come to pass, 

when I bring a cloud over the earth, 

that the bow shall 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 the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16 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.

17 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.


TWO, in reflection of His GLORY.

As shown in prophet Ezekiel's vision:

Ezekiel 1:28

King James Version

28 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.


THREE, used in manifestation of GOD's supreme power.

As shown on this third verse:

Revelation 10:1-4

King James Version

10 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:

2 And he had in his hand a little book open: 

and he set his right foot upon the sea, 

and his left foot on the earth,

3 And cried with a loud voice, 

as when a lion roareth: 

and when he had cried, 

seven thunders uttered their voices.

4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, 

I was about to write: 

and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, 

Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, 

and write them not.


Beware how we use the rainbow.

It cannot serve man's desecrating purpose.

The rainbow is GOD's rainbow.

It is sacred to the LORD.

Believers abide by that.
