The Rainbow, an End-Times Sign of Man's Rebellion Against God

Image result for white house rainbowFriday, June 26, 2015, it was announced that by a vote of 5-4 our Supreme Court has struck down every state law that prohibited gay marriage in their state. That night we saw the White House lit up in the colors of the rainbow. Many marched in solidarity carrying rainbow colored flags. And on Facebook, people are superimposing the rainbow colors over their profile pictures to show their support of the ruling. Several have remarked that it looks like a war broke out on Facebook between the Confederates and a Skittles Factory.

But all joking aside, I feel that it's time to address the question, "Why are they using a rainbow?" I believe to answer this question, we must first look at passages of Scripture where the Rainbow is seen. First, we see it mentioned in the Book of Genesis.

I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud
And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

So, the Rainbow was first used as a sign of God's Covenant with Noah after the flood that He would not destroy the Earth or mankind again with water.

In Revelation 4:3 we are told that there is a Rainbow round about the Throne in Heaven.

And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
According to J. Vernon McGee in his "Through the Bible" Commentary, this is a scene from Heaven just prior to the Great Tribulation, and God is showing that as the prophet Habbakkuk prayed, in Grace He will remember mercy.  So, the Rainbow here is again a sign of God's Covenant with the Earth, but more importantly His mercy upon the Earth and Mankind.

Finally, we are told in Revelation 10 of a Mighty Angel that comes down with a Rainbow on His Head. 

And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
Here, again Dr. McGee states that the rainbow is a sign of God's Covenant with man not to destroy Him with a flood.  So throughout Scripture, the Rainbow is consistently seen as a sign of God's Covenant with mankind not to destroy the Earth again with Water. 

Yet mankind was given a responsibility with His Covenant. He was according to Genesis 8:17 to be fruitful and multiply upon the Earth. Yet, today....


Furthermore, we see a rider of a White Horse in Revelation 6:2, whom many believe to be the Antichrist, arise with a bow and a crown. Some suggest that this rider is Christ, yet the word for Crown is not a Diadem (Permanent Crown) but a Temporary Crown, because his conquest is for a short time. The Bow, however is interesting to note.  According to Strong's Exhaustive Concordance the bow is...

  • Bow #5115 ~ toxon, a bow (as the simplest fabric): from the base of #5088 - tikto, a strengthened form of a primary; to produce (from seed, as a mother, a plant, the earth) lit. or fig. - bear, be born, bring forth, be delivered, be in travail.
So this bow of simplest fabric arises in a time of travail.  Jon Courson and others say that the bow is representative of a false covenant Antichrist will make between Israel and the Arabs ushering in a false and temporary peace.  But could it be something even more sinister? Listen to the words of Hosea.

  • Hosea 7:13,16 Woe unto them! for they have fled from Me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against Me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against Me. (16) They return, but not to the most High: they are like a deceitful bow: their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue: this shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.

A true bow is made of water and sunlight. This deceitful bow is made of fabric. Hosea talks of a group of people that had transgressed against God and His Covenant, that they are like a deceitful bow. True Children of God are faithful to God to stand under His True Bow/Covenant, but unregenerate man has always tried to make his own Covenant and are in essence standing under a Deceitful Rainbow.

The Truth is that Satan is a usurper and a Counterfeiter. He has a counterfeit for everything God has made as an original.

  • God made man. The Fallen Angels produced the Nephilim.
  • God made a Covenant with Man. Satan offers Man a False Covenant.
  • God has the Elect. Satan has his Apostates.
  • God offers genuine conversion and salvation (His Wheat). Satan sows Tares among the Wheat.
  • God has His Christ. Satan has his Antichrist.
  • God has His standards. Satan has his new morality.
  • God has His Truth. Satan has his Relative Truth.
  • God Alone is Worthy of Worship. Satan wants to steal God's glory and get worship for himself.

So why a Rainbow? Simply put, it is the Deception of Satan blinding mankind to spit in God's Face choosing wickedness and abominations over the Righteous Standards of God and His Word.  Even going to the point of flaunting it in public, and the Buildings of Government being painted with this Deceitful Bow.


God will get the last say! First of all, this is simply another sign that we are living in the Last Days!  Jesus said...

They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
Mankind continues in his rebellion against God, with false prophets giving mankind a false assurance of peace. Mankind continues to live his life in rebellion totally oblivious to the Wrath of God that will be revealed from Heaven against ALL UNRIGHTEOUNSESS.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

"Effiminate and Abuses or themselves with mankind" is simply translated, "Homosexuals and Sodomites." You can't live in open sin and rebellion and be a True Child of God!  And when you get right down to it, there are 2 types of people in this lifestyle: Those who have been abused and/or deceived or pressured into it by someone else, and Those who have willfully chosen it, while knowing the commandments of God. Those are in a far more precarious position, according to Scripture!

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Are these people the willful pawns of Satan in his feeble attempt to replace God and Usurp His Glory and gain worship for Himself? NO! Many though have willfully chosen to forsake God for their own sinful pleasures, and some have been "GIVEN UP!"

OTHERS THOUGH ARE IN THIS LIFESTYLE AND WANT OUT! You know it isn't right but don't know how to escape! RUN TO JESUS! 2 Corinthians 5:17 still states, "If any man be in Christ, HE IS A NEW CREATURE!" YOU CAN BE FREE IN JESUS! I

I URGE YOU! It is becoming more and more evident that we ARE IN THE LAST DAYS just before Jesus returns! SO PLEASE FLEE FROM THE WRATH TO COME! Throw yourself at God's Mercy and by His Grace and Faith in His Son be Saved!  Listen to the Words of John!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

To all those Saved but Discouraged about the Direction of our Country and the World, LOOK UP! JESUS IS COMING SOON! DON'T COMPROMISE! OUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH! MARANATHA!!!
