Rainbow Connection

I don’t know whether it’s visible to all visitors to this blog – but sometime during the last hour, WordPress seem to have added a “rainbow” header across the top of the page.

I can only assume it is intended to be an expression of support to the LGBTIetc. campaign regarding same sex marriage, currently under way in Australia.

In Genesis we are told that the rainbow was a covenantal sign from God:

And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” And God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth.”

Sadly that sign has been appropriated to represent a cause rebelling against God and His creation.

I have no control regarding the display across the page header but while it’s there I reclaim it for the purpose for which God intended.

If that colourful header isn’t there on your screen  – it does no harm to be reminded of the rainbow’s Godly significance.

  1. Not seeing the rainbow on this end. But we all see it continually in the LBGT context: so this is a much-needed reminder it’s GOD’s symbol, with HIS meaning.

  2. Hi Tim,

    I don’t see the rainbow header here, but thanks for putting this information out for your readers. Satan inverts and perverts everything of God, but the rainbow still belongs to God. Let us all reclaim it for Him.


  3. He Steve and Jeanne, I suspected the rainbow header wouldn’t be visible worldwide.
    I assume it’s only being used in Australia where the topic of homosexual marriage is high on the current political agenda. A postal vote has been scheduled for later this year, asking whether we think that same sex couples should be able to marry. If there is a majority yes vote, the issue will be voted on in Parliament, with the expectation that the legal definition of marriage will be changed to match the yes vote.

    If the majority vote no – then it will NOT go to a Parliamentary decision, and the status quo will remain (until after the next election when it’s sure to be raised again).

    The issue has exposed a lot of anti-Christian sentiment. While the LGBT community claim they are being bullied subjected to hate-speech (and there has been some), the majority of what I’ve come across has been directed at Christians and others who believe marriage should remain between a man and a woman.
