Reflection on the rainbow
Written and posted by Jean-Louis at The Light Seed on October 21, 2014
The idea to write this post came to me when a few days ago, I saw a
picture of a rainbow cake on Facebook.
I had previously read several articles in the past few years about
Christian businessmen and women who refused to cater to homosexual couples weddings
with their services such as baking the wedding cake with a gay theme, providing the photographers or for a pastor to perform a same sex wedding ceremony.
They did that not out of hate or
lack of love because true Christians do not hate anybody but on the contrary
love homosexuals with the love of the Lord Jesus who died for the whole world
regardless of what kind of sins they commit. They refused to bend the knee to
the Political Correctness relentless pressure of Cesar out of integrity of
conscience and their desire to not offend the Holy God that they love and
And for that righteous and courageous stance, they were threatened with
heavy fines until they complied with the unjust laws. Some of them ended up losing
their family business altogether.

symbol of celebration and of the participation of the guests, family and
friends in the deep love and life commitment of two people who chose to unite their
life in the bond of matrimony?

peace maker and try to follow Paul´s admonition to be ambassadors for Christ
and bring reconciliation between God and man and between men themselves by proclaiming

rainbow and its significance in the lives of men.
The rainbow is one of the magnificent signs the Lord God Almighty
has placed in the heavens for all of mankind to admire and to worship Him.
Characteristic and interesting properties can be
deduced from observing this marvelous heavenly phenomenon.
First, a certain amount of clouds, rain and sunlight has to be present in order for us to
witness the glorious appearance.
Secondly, it takes place in the atmosphere which is the sphere of
Satan´s spiritual influence and operations. It helps us understand the reason why God provides signs that are visible to
all mankind and the lessons we can learn for watching the heavens especially in these precarious and perilous times in
which we live.
Thirdly, I notice that like the wind that you cannot take in your hand, you cannot grab it and say [….]
