Recently, Ken Hamm, of the Ark Encounter, in Kentucky, lit up the life-size replica of Noah’s Ark with the colors of the rainbow. This was in keeping with the original intent of the rainbow. After the worldwide flood of Noah’s time, it is reported in the Book of Genesis that the rainbow was the sign from God that there would never be another judgment of water upon the earth (Genesis 9:11-16).
Of course, this does not sit well with the LGBT community. Bright colors have historically been associated with the gay and lesbian lifestyle. They have been used to identify oneself as a homosexual, and to attract others of the same sex. Even the famous song, “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” made popular by Judy Garland, was initially associated with homosexuals. People who identified themselves as such came out in droves to hear Garland sing.
Now let’s talk about the rainbow flag. It has six colors. Six is the number of mankind, or imperfection. The rainbow of God has seven colors. Seven is the number of perfection.
The gays and lesbians, like all of us, fall far short of perfection. Romans 3:23 says that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” But the next verse tells us that all of us can be “…justified as a gift by his grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.”
