In Genesis 9:8-17, God made the rainbow covenant with Noah. God had resolved in His heart not again to destroy the earth and all flesh therein by a flood. This covenant embraced not only all of those living on the earth but all who should later live, both man and beast. This covenant was a promise, a pledge, a covenant by Jehovah.
The design of this covenant was for the good of all men and all creatures then living and all of their descendants. The covenant was to have a token, a sign, by which it would be recalled; and this would endure so long as the earth stands. “I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth” (v. 13).
A rainbow results when the rays of the sun are reflected from falling raindrops at an angle from the viewer. A lovely arch of variegated light is thus formed, and the rainbow indicates that the sky is not wholly overcast; otherwise, the rays of the sun could not appear. Thus, a more fitting symbol of the assurance of God in this respect could not be imagined, when we see in the sky the beautiful rainbow.
Let us recognize the rainbow as God’s token of His goodness and kindness to us and not a symbol that represents homosexuality, which is a degrading and despicable sin as described in the Bible (Romans 1:21-27). Homosexuality was a sin in the days of Abraham and Lot; it was a sin in the days of Moses; it is still a sin today. For many years those who practiced homosexuality did so in secret hiding their shameful act of sin of which it is. Now they have surfaced from their cesspool of abominations and are parading their sinful acts of perversion before the world with a so-called Pride month.
These perverts of God’s natural laws fail to understand that God clearly condemned homosexuality, both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament. Christians cannot support the sin of homosexuality, because it is a sin they have chosen on their own volition. It is not something they were born with but have chosen this sinful lifestyle.
The word of God can definitely be blasphemed by homosexuals using the rainbow as their symbol! (Titus 2:5) “That the word of God be not blasphemed.” The word “blaspheme” simply means to speak evil of it or to hurt the influence of as the homosexuals are doing with God’s symbol, the rainbow! When we say one thing and practice another, we give the world an occasion to speak against the word. It was said of some who were blaspheming God, “They profess that they know God: but in works they deny him, being abominable, and unto every good work reprobate” (Titus 1:16).
The homosexuals claim to have the right relationship with God; however, they have turned away from the truth. Since they have turned away from the truth, they live ungodly lives. Their ungodly lives deny that they have a right relationship with God. The reason they live ungodly lives is because they are abominable (despicable and detestable). The Bible plainly teaches that homosexuality and lesbianism are despicable sins.
Because of the practice of the very grievous sin of homosexuality in those cities, the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire out of heaven! (Gen. 18:20) Under the Law of Moses, the sin of homosexuality was punishable by death (Lev. 20:13). Therefore, I refuse to recognize LGBTQ month using the rainbow to celebrate their sin of homosexuality!
