After the flood receded and the animals left the ark, God established a covenant.

Genesis 9:8  Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him: I now establish my covenant with you, and with
your descendants after you and every living creature that was with you-

Genesis 9:11  I establish my covenant with you:  Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of the 
flood;  never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.

God promises Noah, all people and all living creatures to come that there will never again be a flood to destroy the
earth.  But how does God remind us of his covenant?

Genesis 9:12  And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every
living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come.

Genesis 9:13  I have set a rainbow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the
earth.

Genesis 9:16  Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting
covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on earth.

Whenever you see a rainbow, it is a reminder of Gods covenant that he will never again flood the earth to destroy it.

Have you ever noticed that a rainbow appears when it stops raining and the sun appears, just like for Noah?

Although God will never again destroy the earth by a flood, one day there will be a new heaven and a new earth as
we will study in Revelation.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
