Bealach Na Ba on the Applecross Peninsula, Wester Ross, Scotland.

I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth.
When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”

Genesis 9:13, 16 (NASB)

Covenants are important, they are solemn promises often with legal strength. Deeds of Covenant are written legal agreements between two parties, usually with reference to land or property. Another form of covenant is the wedding ring that many wear, a permanent reminder of the promise to love your spouse “through thick and thin” as the saying goes.

Almighty God made a permanent Covenant with the earth and its inhabitants never to flood it globally again, and ending all life. The binding proof of this over the generations is not a document, but a rainbow in the sky after a rainstorm. The sight of these are beautiful reminders of the integrity of Almighty God, an encouragement of His love for us, His children. Yet sinful men have stolen the rainbow image as a banner to celebrate their sinfulness in the Pride flag, with only six colours instead of God’s perfect seven.

Dear readers, let us boldy reclaim His rainbow as a holy covenant! It is our sign of hope in the love of God, through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Each time you see a rainbow after rain utter a prayer of thankfulness to your Father God who loves you.

  1. This post is dear to my heart Alan and I was not aware that the pride flag only had six colours (number of man) versus the seven in the rainbow (number of completion) so I thank you for that one! Just had to repost this! Blessings!

  2. Thanks, Alan, for posting.
    Even in our village there are rainbow benches and also parking spots painted in the ‘rainbow’ colours.
    It is sad, but I wonder if the people who did the rainbow painting were ever told the story of Noah. πŸŒ·πŸ€—

    1. Thank you for your valuable comments Sally. I was in a local supermarket lately and the place was awash with pride flags, it disgusted me. The crazy thing is that homosexuals et. al. only make up about 5% of the population at most, yet you get the impression that they are a major demographic group.

  3. I love this post, Alan!
    And want to mention that in late 2022 the “rainbow” will be in my life as another work project. I will have a book out from Ambassador International Publishers (Emerald Publishers in England) titled: “The Same Rainbow’s End”. It’s a thrilling story of answered prayer and love. I wish it would not take so long to get a book published!!! Thank you for your faithful posting and the spirit in which you write.

  4. A-men I once saw an image on line which I was told later was Removed by Facebook. It showed A massive HAND coming out of the sky with words in capitals, I AM TAKING BACK MY RAINBOW FROM THE USE of SINFUL HUMANS, IT IS MINE IT REMAINS MINE ETERNALLY IT IS MY COVENENT PROMISE. I know I have the picture saved somewhere safe. Christmas without Christ shows the depth of fallen unredeemed humanity. Easter replaced by a bunny is another example. Footballers called messiahs and even some sports star was celebrated as being immortal. I look at the world of 2021 and marvel that His Hand of Judgment has not yet fallen . We are still living in the Grace years but how long? How long? He will come for His Bride. Thank yuou and keep writing Alan. Bless you.

    1. Such Grace sister Faye! It is well beyond our comprehension; it is utterly lovely and huge beyond belief. As you say so well, anything else by men is fraudulent and deserves judgement indeed. God bless you richly today sister.


  5. Excellent post Alan! It reminded me of a verse in Isaiah that I read this morning, “You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to Him who formed it, ‘He did not make me?” Can the pot say of the potter, “He knows nothing”? (Isaiah 29:16). I know I will sound like an echo of the others who have commented but the 6 versus 7 colors is new to me as well. I’ll be honest I cringe now whenever I see rainbow themed items at the store. When we were school supply shopping I found myself drawn to rainbow erasers and quickly put them back when I considered the message they might convey. And yet they truly may have been simply rainbow erasers. From your post I know now to count the number of colors represented. 7 will convey God’s perfect promise.

    1. Thank you Beth for your uplifting comments. I have been highly blessed to be able to point to the rainbow differences for the brethren. It is so important; often Satan will appear as a wolf in sheep’s clothing to lead God’s children astray, we must be so vigilant. May our Father bless you and your family this weekend sister.
