Beautiful rainbow photographed from our home.
We were treated with this view recently. I’m sure everyone thinks of the promises of G-d when he or she sees a rainbow. What a wonderful sign to comfort and reassure us that G-d remembers what He promises to us and that He will never leave us or forsake us.
Of course this does not mean that “everything will go our way” or that all of our prayers will be answered with a “yes.” That certainly is not the case. What it does mean, though, is that as we read the Bible, and learn of the many promises G-d has made to us, Israel, etc., we can be assured that He will honor those promises.
Many people teach that G-d is finished with the Jewish people and Israel. They teach that Israel has “lost out” on the promises of G-d because of their disobedience. Should that make us, as believers, somehow feel good…that supposedly G-d has given to “the church” what He promised to Israel? NO! This should make us feel very uneasy. For if He gave promises to Israel and then cancelled them due to Israel’s disobedience, what would that mean to us and our salvation? Certainly we have been disobedient to G-d. Wouldn’t that mean that He would take salvation away from us?
G-d is faithful. G-d never lies. G-d never turns His back on us or lets us down. Even though we are disobedient at times, all of us, He is faithful to His promises and the redemption we receive through the shed blood of Messiah Yeshua is for our past, present and future sins.
Let us live in the confidence we have in our salvation through Messiah Yeshua!
