Genesis 9:12-17 gives the account of God setting a token of his covenant with man and every living creature. The token of the covenant was a bow (rainbow) in the sky. Did you ever wonder about God’s painting in the sky? The colors of the rainbow start with Violet (or Purple), the color of royalty and ends in Red, the color of blood.
Points to ponder:
Just as the rainbow signifies God’s covenant to not destroy his creation totally, Jesus is the token of the covenant of God. On one end of this token is Red – the color of Jesus’ blood signifying the blood of Jesus that cleanseth all sins,and on the other end is Violet/Purple – the color of royalty signifying the Kingship of Jesus and whenever God sees Jesus, God will remember to hold back his righteous wrath and not destroy all of mankind or any of his creation.
Genesis 9:12-17 (KJV)
12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
