The image of the rainbow has become closely tied to homosexuality. The link is so strong to homosexual practices that many Christians shy away from the use of rainbow colors or imagery to avoid promoting actions and a lifestyle that Scripture states is sinful.
This avoidance does not have to be the case, and it should not be the case. The Bible prominently features a rainbow as a sign of a promise that God made with Noah after he destroyed the world via a flood. The promise that God made was that he would never again destroy the world with water. (Genesis 9:12-17)
The rainbow can thus remind us of God’s promise to Noah and all living creatures. We can look to the rainbow and be reminded of how God has given us promises that are both of Law and of Gospel.
When we look to the rainbow, we are reminded that God did destroy the world once due to the wickedness of mankind. We can understand how wicked we are capable of being when we consider the many millions of deaths that occurred in the 20th century under atheistic, communist regimes. Just how bad men had become in the days of Noah, Scripture is not clear, but certainly evil enough that God felt compelled to destroy all of mankind, except Noah and his family. Noah was spared because he alone found favor with God through his walk with the Lord.
Concerning Law, the rainbow’s outside color of blue reminds us of the flood waters of Noah’s day. The outer color of red, reminds us that God has promised that he will destroy the world again. He will keep his promise by not use water. This time the world and everything in it will be destroyed by fire. (2 Peter 3:10-13)
The rainbow also reminds us of God’s promises of good news. The rainbow’s outside blue, reminds us of baptism into Jesus Christ. The way to be saved when the world is destroyed by fire is to be in the waters of baptism. Peter tells us that the waters of Noah’s day, the waters by which eight people were saved, symbolize the waters of baptism that now save us. He says that the waters of baptism save us through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 3:18-22) In baptism, we are buried with Christ in his death and raised with him to new life. (Romans 6:3-11)
The rainbow also points to Jesus. It is a bow, as in a bow and arrow. God’s bow is no longer pointed down at us. It is pointed up to heaven. God’s wrath against the wickedness of men has been turned to his Son, who became sin for us, and who was pierced for our transgressions. (2 Corinthians 5:21 and Isaiah 53:5)
The rainbow reminds us of God’s promises of both Law and Gospel.
