We know what the symbol of the rainbow used by gays is supposed to connote in our modern cultural context:
Diversity. Multiplicity. Acceptance. Equality. Pride.
And how could anyone be opposed to equality?
Yet, a sad irony exists in the gays’ usage of the symbol of the rainbow.
WARNING: WHAT FOLLOWS WILL NOT BE POLITICALLY CORRECT
Jesus Christ, of all people, connected the end of the world to a cataclysmic event of centuries past. He said His Second coming at the end of the world in judgment would be at a time much like the time of the Flood.
“As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man.
For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark,
and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man,” Jesus proclaimed (Matthew 24:37).
Notice that Christ links the Flood to marriages in some way, as well as to carnal pleasures.
And for what reason did God send the Flood to wipe away the earth, save for Noah and his family?
Genesis 6:5 tells us, “The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (cf. v. 13). And therefore, God set to destroy every creature on the planet (Genesis 6:7), except for Noah, his family and the animals on his ark.
THE FINAL STRAW
What was so bad that God wanted to punish all of mankind?
The Babylonian Talmud tells us.
This was a collection of Biblical commentary from rabbis of centuries past that the Jewish people held as authoritative. This, along with the Jerusalem Talmud, preserved a great deal of history and tradition for the Jews as to the proper interpretation of the Sacred Scriptures.
Well, the Babylonian Talmud states the final straw that caused God to bring worldwide judgement on the earth was, in fact, tied to unnatural marriages that had been made. The Talmud reads in part:
“Rabbi Huna in the name of Rabbi Yosef (said): The generation of the Flood was not wiped out until they wrote gemumasi’ot (“marriage contracts”) for (the union of a man to) a male or to an animal” (Genesis Rabbah 26:5, emphasis my own).
When was the last time mankind wrote marriage contracts that defied the Natural Law and thus, divine law?
It wasn’t at the time of Sodom and Gomorrah. Nope, for only those two cities were destroyed.
Nope, as the Talmud states, you would have to go all the way back to the time before the Flood.
And again, what did God think of such moral perversions? He destroyed everyone, except one faithful man and his family!
And when did the symbol of the rainbow appear? Genesis tells us it came after the judgement of mankind for the terrible sins, especially for calling unnatural marriages real ones.
“I set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
“When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds,
“I will remember my covenant which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh” (Genesis 9:13-15).
APPLYING THIS TO TODAY
We are living in a midst of a Western culture as perverse or worse than that of Noah’s day. We have legalized so-called “same-sex marriage.”
Not only that, but our appetite for sexual license seems to know no bounds. We have laws enshrining child murder in the form of abortion and abortifacient contraception. We have a multibillion-dollar porn industry feeding into the carnal cravings of unreasonable people. Our society is drunk on fleeting aspirations of lust and sexual desire.
Fewer marriages are entered into. Even fewer last. Divorce is rampant and families fall apart. Children are treated as commodities, rather than as gifts from on high.
And we have a society embracing the gay agenda, with their symbol of the rainbow. A symbol of judgment. A symbol of restraint by God. As if that gives us license to defy Him without the worry of just punishment.
“As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of man.
They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all” (Luke 17:67-27).
Yes, God promised never to destroy the earth by a flood again (Genesis 9:11).
But that doesn’t rule out fire, or anything else for that matter (see 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10, 2 Peter 3:8-10).
What’s your take on the symbol of the rainbow for the gay agenda?
