Genesis 9:13, Rainbow. The rainbow is a glorious symbol of two opposing spiritual realities and forces relating to Elohim’s righteousness and holiness. It speaks of his grace in that he will not bring the cleansing judgment of water on the earth again. At the same time, it speaks of his judgment against the evil of the pre-flood world.
When the modern homosexual movement has appropriated the rainbow as its symbol, it fails to realize that the rainbow is a double edged sword representing both the mercy and the judgment of Elohim. It’s both ironic and prophetic that in looking to this as their representative symbol, homosexuals are unwittingly recognizing and even declaring the ultimate judgments of a righteous and set-apart Elohim against man’s wickedness and rebellion including the sin of homosexuality.
Although Elohim promised to never again judge man for his wickedness through drowning him in water and at the same time cleansing the earth of man’s wickedness, he will, at the end of the age, judge men by fire and at the same time purify the earth of the wickedness men have committed on it (2 Pet 3:7 cp. Isa 51:6; Rev 20:15; Matt 25:41). Water only partially cleans the surface of things. Fire cleanses more deeply.
It is necessary for the earth to experience a deep cleaning in preparation for it to be a suitable habitation for Elohim and his glorified sons and daughters in the New Jerusalem on the new earth.
Studying #Noach yesterday, I read how they suspect the tower of Babel to resemble a Ziggurat like structure. A pyramidal structure that was flat at the top with 4 / 7 levels. What caught my attention was this. Apparently every level was a different color. Because this was the biggest building in the city, it looked like a giant rainbow from afar. I found this interesting after the flood the Creator sent and the rainbow sign of the covenant that יהוה gave us. Shalom
It seems the distortion of יהוהs rainbow is older than we think.
So interesting what you researched Naomi. The fact that the Tower of Babel looked like a giant rainbow from afar. I must show other believers what you have researched they will be very interested
I am in awe…In the last few weeks I have been prompted to research the history of the rainbow in relation to the homosexual onslaught in society today; knowing it was a symbol of Yah’s covenant with Noah and all other creatures. He has been giving me the very revelation you speak of. Thank you Natan for blazing a trail where few will travel. The broad divide between Yah’s ‘set apart’ people and the world.increases with revelation and knowledge; and the road gets narrower.
Just an add on : water is a theme fellow believers & myself have been studying over the sabbath & last few days….interesting re research on sea levels rising & the poles shifting.. Creation groaning.?! ..( floods in many parts of the world also.) ..east coast of US., floods storms / west coast ..fires.. Etc.
Yes it is sad that man has perverted Elohims sign & covenant. The rainbow.
Reading verses in LUKE CHAPTER 21. Verse 25 …
And there shall be signs in the sun, moon,& stars; & upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea & the waves roaring. ….water theme again. WHOA. !!
Verse 26: Men’s hearts failing them for fear, & for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
Verse 27: And they shall see the son of man coming in a cloud with power & great glory.
Verse 28: And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, & lift up your heads your ( our ) redemption draws near.
Also Mark chapter 14: verses 24,25
Mathew chapter 24 .
Elohim will have his way & evil will be defeated eventually ..much to happen yet
Before Messiahs return…but we are getting closer…
It is also interesting to do an In depth study on signs in the sun, moon & stars ..relating these to the heavenly Mazeroth ..mentioned in the book of Job. & fortelling the birth of Messiah & his second coming in relation to Revelation chapter 12 …researched this in Sept. ..amazing what has opened up & all the relevant verses re the sun, the moon & the stars…found in book of revelation & Mathew, Mark & Luke.
