It's been a long time since God created the first rainbow. Some 4,300 years. And so it's easy to see why many people ignore what happened in the days of Noah. How ironic that the recent White House rainbow was used to celebrate sin rather than to remind people about God's judgment against sin and His love for sinners.
The biblical timeline reveals the point in history when God brought the Great Flood upon the Earth. It was an act of divine judgment in response to man's wickedness. And the rainbow God created after the flood was to assure man that the Lord would never again flood the Earth as he did in the days of Noah.
And so it is ironic, and yes even tragic, that President Obama would choose to light the White House with a rainbow after the recent Supreme Court decision. It was his loud and proud way of celebrating the sin of same-sex marriage. Obviously, the president doesn't seem to believe that the Old Testament stories of Noah's Ark and Sodom and Gomorrah were actual events in history. If he did, then he might also be inclined to believe what Jesus said about being the only way to heaven. (See John 14:6.)
You see my friends, the "ark" today is the cross where Christ died, and the flood is coming in full force on Judgment Day. The rainbow in the sky reminds us of God's judgment and His love, and it points us to the only way to escape the coming wrath and be safe forever in paradise. Noah and his family escaped the flood. And so will all those who come to Christ for salvation.
