  • Well, the Earth has been flooded of many disastrous occasions, such as the recent South Pacific Tsunami, and countless devastating hurricanes, so...what does that tell you?
  • The rainbow is the refraction of light through rain as in a prism effect :o)
  • Go back to the text: Here it is in Genesis 9 13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. ======================= "Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life." God will not end history by water, although history will be ended by His hand (see Book of Reveleation)
  • After the flood Jehovah made a covenant with Noah, using him as a representative for the human race. The covenant contained a promise that Jehovah God would never again destroy all flesh by means of a flood. Because the rainbow was given as a visual symbol and reminder of it, the covenant came to be known as the rainbow covenant. Genesis 9:11, 13 tells us: “I do establish my covenant with you: No more will all flesh be cut off by waters of a deluge, and no more will there occur a deluge to bring the earth to ruin. My rainbow I do give in the cloud, and it must serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.”
  • I think either way you word it still makes it God's call whether to never flood the earth or to never allow the earth to be flooded. Semantics don't govern God. I like the never to allow it to happen option better than the first wording. We seem to be headed in the direction where a man-made global warming could make vast regions of earth uninhabitable.
