Good morning readers.
A few years back I had attended a youth camp and during this camp the guest preacher spoke about remembering passages that made you say “wow!” So today, I would like to share with you a “wow” that I found, while reading.
Please read a long. First we will start off in Revelation 4:3 in your KJV. It says: “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.”
I would like us to notice the bolded word “rainbow”. This word is only mentioned twice in Revelation – in chapter 4 and chapter 10, but we will only be looking at chapter 4. Now I want you all to turn your Bibles to Genesis 9:12-16. This passage says:
“ And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
 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 I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
 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.”
You may ask ‘okay, why is the word “bow” bolded?’ Well, you see, these are the first mentions of the bow. God had purified the earth with a flood, so Noah and his family were the only people left. The bow was a promise God made to Noah and himself that he would never flood the earth again. But I want you all to see the first bolded words- “my bow”. God had used this possessive pronoun, because if we remember back in Revelation God has a rainbow surrounding his throne.
This is not just a random bow God created! This rainbow, has been around his throne forever – before time began! It was God’s bow. And now, it is our promise from God to never flood the earth.
But now a days, people mess up the rainbow, the pride events to be an example. God’s promises is pure but it has been defiled. But God still loves those people, he sent Jesus to save them, and we aught to love them too, and try to win them to the Lord.
Thank you for joining me today. I hope you were wowed as much as I was.
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your scriptures and allowing us to read it in the freedom we have. Lord, many people who read your word may not be free in their country, but they are free in their spirit. So Lord, give us peace in our physical bondage, and help us to grasp the promises you have for us. Help us as well, Father, to love those that aschew your promises and change it’s meaning. We thank you for this day, and thank you for waking me up this morning. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
