The Purpose: Genesis 9 [MSG REMIX] This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and everything living around you and everyone living after you. I'm putting my rainbow in the clouds, a sign of the covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will floodwaters destroy all life. When the rainbow appears in the cloud, I'll see it and rememeber the eternal covenant between God and everything living, every last living creature on earth.
This is one of the many promises God has give us throughout the Scriptures.

There may not be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but there are streets of gold at the end of our time.
