Ezekiel 1:28, forgiveness, God's covenant with mankind, God's promise, God's sovereign will, Living in Jesus, Noah, Rainbow, Victory
Only God’s sovereign will can heal our independent wills. We are created beings, and only our Creator can truly heal our ways. Our beliefs, or opinions on what we think is true, what we want to be true, and what we believe is true, cannot change our Divine Creator’s truth. We have a relationship with God on His terms, not on ours. And we, separately, must choose to privately strip ourselves bare before Him, deciding to choose Him and His truth, over all things. Noah had a choice, and He chose God, and because of that was delivered from the great flood, a punishment over man’s faithlessness to God. And as a result, God declared the rainbow to represent the sign of His covenant with mankind to never again send something to destroy all of the human race. Our Beloved Creator humbled Himself, and vulnerably opened Himself up by making that powerful covenant with us, knowing that His creation is imperfect and can easily fall into being unfaithful to Him. And the beautiful, Divinely Declared Rainbow, became a symbol of God’s faithfulness and mercy, as well as a manifestation of God’s glory in the universe, mentioned again in Ezekiel 1:28~’As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of One that spake.’ A rainbow, used to describe the presence of God. May we have that same passion, commitment, and faithfulness to God! May His Beloved Holy Spirit intimately guide us into sacrificing our private opinions, beliefs, emotions and feelings, and instead, decide to honor God above all things. May the Holy Spirit protect you, and secure the powerful meaning and powerful existence of the beautiful rainbow deeply within you so that when you gaze upon one, you will automatically only ever associate it with God and His powerful declaration, while your heart passionately cries out to your Abba, “Blessed art Thou, O Lord our God, King of the universe, Who remembers the covenant, is faithful to His Covenant, and keeps His word.” All Glory and Honor unto the Lord our God, Hallelujah, the Lord God omnipotent reigns!
I recently heard of another deep definition of the rainbow that amazed and humbled me. A bow is also a weapon for destroying an enemy. When no longer at war, the man of the house would hang his bow up over the doorway. When you entered a town you could see if the village was at peace by whether the bows were hanging in the doorway or not. Out loving Savior has hung His bow up in the doorway of the sky to eternally remind us of his being at peace with us, no longer set out to destroy mankind, but to seek restoration. It is not merely a symbol of there not being another flood to destroy the world, but a weapon hung as a symbol of peace and restoration with Him.
