The story behind the rainbow....

Post by: Lola

Thanks for your sharing, Melvin.
I am encouraged as i read it....that indeed God has been faithful :)

Anyway, I wanted to blog on Sunday evening after i was blessed by Ps Gerald's Noahic Covenant on Sunday. For those of you who missed it, go download it from the website. It was a good sermon which ministered to me.

I believe many of us already know this....the meaning behind the rainbows that we so often see after the rain....but on Sunday, as i heard it preached again, it brought a smile somewhere in my heart....just to know that the promise God made to Noah has truly continued through the thousands of years....He is indeed a faithful God!

God was speaking to Noah, after the storm came to wipe up the rest of the earth:
Genesis 9:12 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:
13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 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.
16 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."
17 So God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth."

As I read/heard the paragraph, i remembered the picture on the left, where we saw the beautiful rainbow in Melahbou, Aceh last year during our humanitarian was a beautiful beautiful rainbow that just swept across the sky after a bout of rain....we stood there with the rest of the team for a good ten minutes taking pictures and just enjoying the sight....

So, the next time i see a rainbow, I will not forget the reason behind this beautiful is not just a scientific thing that happens, but truly a display of His splendor, AND a strong reminder of His faithfulness to all the promises He has ever spoken and given in the Bible, as well as to us individually!

God is so amazing............. :)
