Bringing back the real meaning of the rainbow


Recommended Posts

This has been covered a little before.  The rainbow has had its meaning hijacked in the past several years with the lgbtq agenda.  How would we restore its meaning of God's promise to never flood the world again?

I'm not so sure you're correct on that, Morales. The Bible gives the rainbow as a sign of a promise to mankind. Christians know what it means, and they still hold to what God gave the sign as. Nothing that the Lord gives as a promise will ever be overrun by the world on a complete and permanent basis. The world may seem to have a current hold on this sign, but, the Lord is the one who will ultimately decide whether the world will keep it or not.

That's true, God will always have His meaning of it that can't be taken away. 

Guess the problem here in NZ is that some churches use it that want to be affirming to the lgbtq crowd.

It's sad, but this is true almost everywhere these days. It's infiltrated nearly every facet of our society.

One of our church members lives in an independent living place. She gets so upset when "pride" month comes along because they really push it there. So she had me run off a copy of a meme that has a hand grabbing a rainbow and it says, "The LORD says Nope! This is mine. Give it back." 

She posted it on her door last year, and it mysteriously disappeared. So I got her another one. She didn't say anything about this year, so maybe it helped. lol

I heard someone say that if we got a cap or t-shirt with the real meaning, we would be playing into the lgbtq crowds hands.  Because it would be a war of ideas, and then I guess we would be flooded again with rainbows of the other meaning... again..

That's usually their intention. Because this subject came up in a thread on another venue, and because i quoted some Scripture, an also posted how God didn't put people into the wrong body, or make them "born that way," my niece and her husband got upset and cut ties with us. It doesn't affect the way I feel about them, but, it does make me wonder how they claim to be Christians and support this ideology.

Yeah I understand that.  I know people who post in another site who promote it and feel tempted to comment on it, but know it would lead to all kinds of trouble.

God will set the abusers right concerning the meaning of the flood rainbow. I've decided to look toward another.

Oh yeah.. this meaning.  I had overlooked Revelation in favour of looking at Genesis.  This is really good.

Too late...The Lord of Glory has claim to this one now.

He had and still does have claim to the old one. That won't change, no matter what perverted group of humans tries to hijack it. There will always be a remnant that remembers where it originated.

The one in Revelation 4 is a complete circle, not an arc. All around the throne.

I don't know that to be a sure thing, Jerry. That brings a nice picture of completeness to mind.

I'll know better when all the Greek is digested or, if it is always present, when I get there. I had never seen a circular rainbow before. You'll give me a little liberty on my rainbow, I hope?

Yes, you certainly can disagree or have a somewhat different opinion on this subject. There is not a lot in the passage to define it.

Though I agree - on earth, there has never (to my knowledge) been a circular rainbow - but this is something in heaven, and it is around a throne, not viewed in the sky - so perhaps that explains why it might be portrayed differently (from my understanding of the passage). Whether a symbol or a physical/spiritual reality (which I believe it is), it is a complete rainbow or circle surrounding the throne, implying that all that the person on the throne does is in accordance with what the rainbow symbolizes: mercy on man, mercy in the midst of judgement.

Habakkuk 3:2 O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.

Psalm 85:10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
