The Real Meaning of The Rainbow is in The Bible

After the monumental decision by the Supreme Court to allow same-sex couples to marry, I knew it was yet another inch closer to the days Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24, and His imminent return.

Let me first say that this post will not attempt to sway you in your views about the Supreme Courts ruling. It would be a waste of time as those who belong to God know and understand the sanctity of marriage and how it originated already.

I want to discuss the rainbow and its true meaning. The rainbow is one of those wonders that God created in the Earth that not only reminds us of Him, but also reminds Him of us. The true meaning of the rainbow comes from the Bible.

Genesis 9:13 says:
I set My bow [rainbow] in the cloud, and it shall be a token or sign of a covenant or solemn pledge between Me and the earth. (Amplified version)

What Do You See? The Lord has Given You the Promised Land, Do You Receive it?

When the children of Israel sent twelve spies to the Promised Land, there were 10 that came back with what the Bible calls "an evil report," while Joshua and Caleb reported that they were well able to conquer the land.

It is intriguing that the twelve spies went to the same land, saw the same giants, and spent the same amount of time surveying the land, yet only two had a good report.

Numbers 13:32-33 says:
And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eat up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. 
The Bible calls the report of the other ten spies evil because it was contrary to what God had already told them.

Whose report will you believe when faced with "facts" and "circumstances?" Are you like Joshua and Caleb who view the circumstance based on God's Word, or are you like the majority who fail to see things the way God says so and ultimately expect defeat?

How we view what we are going through is extremely important to the outcome. It was Joshua and Caleb who ultimately led the children of Israel into the Promised Land. They were also rewarded with more land for them and their families because of their faith in God's Word.

Our families will be positively or negatively impacted by our faith or lack thereof. But we cannot have faith in God when we do not read His Word. It is impossible.

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
