God's Purpose of the Rainbow...

God’s Purpose For the Rainbow…


There are many who claim they’ve nothing to “hide!”

They tend to use the rainbow

 as a source of their “pride.”


But if you read in the book of Genesis, it is revealing.

God’s purpose of the rainbow

had a different meaning!


The rainbow was there when much

 of mankind disappeared!

There was a promise of God that was very clear!


He promised to never again destroy man with a flood.

This was his promise!  An extension of his love!


It was never intended as God’s approval for perversion!

Mankind still needs a Jesus’ filled holy conversion!


The colors of the rainbow can’t

wash away sin’s dark stain!

This can only happen by the

 power of Jesus’ name!


The colors are beautiful! But man’s heart

is filled with deceit!

Without the soul cleansing power of Jesus…

 We’re never complete!


No court decision can give the freedom that many desire!

Only the power of the cross can

 change you this very hour!


The only way to find equality with God,

is through the cross!

Without his words of truth…

We are forever LOST!


Look past the colors of the rainbow! 

 Seek the power of the blood!

Then you too, can be changed from

 God’s power from above!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
