rainbow a current symbol of hope, of
Hope that we will get through this crisis.
Did you know that the first rainbow to appear was
a symbol of a covenant, a promise?
Well, in the Bible in Genesis chapter 8 we read:
God said, 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.
So God said to Noah, This is the sign of
the covenant I have established between me and
all life on the earth.
