Reclaiming the Rainbow!
Rainbows have long held (correctly) the symbol of hope for difficult causes. This symbol was first written by the Lord across the skies in His restoration of a post-flood world.
The rainbow flag originally adopted by the homosexual and lesbian community had eight stripes. Each color was to represent some aspect of life, e.g - yellow was for the sun, orange for healing etc. Arguably the flag arose from the San Francisco gay community in 1978 as a reusable symbol to be flown high in the Gay Freedom Day Parade.
And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.” (Genesis 9:12-16)
Rainbows are the celebration of restoration not destruction. They honor the good and not the shameful.
Understand that the rainbow flag has satan inspiring it. He has never had an original thought except to twist, rebel, deny and deform the righteousness of Heaven. Satan has bent God's promise into man's pride of sin. The rainbow flag as it is now flown celebrates pride in the shameful and not the loving promise of divine protection against worldwide flood.
I wonder - could the rainbow flag be in fact an invitation to further Divine intervention upon mankind's honor of wickedness, for rainbows were only formed after God's first judgement upon His earth? God had gazed down (He still does this) upon the earth and seen:
The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. (Genesis 6:5)
What then does God see today? Surely God witnesses today what He saw before recorded time?
The time is soon when the Christians who refuse to salute the rainbow flag will hear:
"You spoke the Truth and this Truth will stand when the world is on fire." (anonymous)
