[Read Genesis Chapter 9]
The idea of a rainbow flag originated first with God. He was so displeased with the rampant sin which characterized the world that he destroyed everything with the breath of life in it except Noah, his family, and the animals he brought along on the ark. Three-hundred seventy days pass and Noah steps off the ark. He worships the Lord and receives a promise. God makes an oath to Noah that he would never again destroy the creation by water. Sin may abound from this day forth, but God would judge that sin another way. The Lord says:
“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: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 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. 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.” -Genesis 9:12–16
The rainbow was and is God’s flag over his creation to be a remembrance to him and a reminder for us of his promise. The LGBT community raises a six colored rainbow flag to be a remembrance to them and a reminder for us of their promise. That promise originating from our land which accepts their perspective and lifestyle as good and right. The LGBT community looks up at their banner to remind them they should not receive judgement from those on the earth. Those on the earth are suppose to look up at the banner to remind us not to send judgement upon those lifting the flag.
The real question I suppose comes down to who has the ultimate authority to say what is right and what is wrong? Does our morality begin with God as our standard of truth and come to us through our conscience and divine revelation (the Bible)? Or does it originate with man and come to us through government laws and community rallies?
God glances down upon his rainbow to remind him that he will never again bring water judgement upon those under his banner. The rainbow is suppose to remind us of God’s promise, not the governments promise to the LGBT community.
Our land is twisted and flipped upside down. And no amount of laws and regulations can change the fact that judgement is still coming; it’s coming by the flood of Jesus’ wrath when he comes full of tattoos, swinging a sword, and riding on a white horse.
Revelation 19:11–16 “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords.”
