The Truth Behind God’s Rainbow and The Counterfeit Versions

I came across something really interesting recently.
I’ve always been fascinated by the rainbow and how it’s been counterfeited in recent decades and taken over by the LGBT community.
It’s not really surprising, the Devil always steals and counterfeits from the true original.
He has no creative power on his own, he can only copy and counterfeit.
So he did what he always does with the rainbow, trying to take it over within the LGBT community.
But here’s what I found really interesting….it only uses 6 colors and not the full 7 of God’s rainbow.
Which is a funny phrase “God’s Rainbow”.
God’s Rainbow is simply “The Rainbow”. The one true creation that he made.
Anyway, here is the LGBT Rainbow, and note only six colors:
Isn’t that interesting?
God chose 7 colors, the LGBT “community” chose 6.
I don’t think that’s any accident.
And you know what else?
The color they omitted was Indigo, and this might be why:
So the next time someone tells you not to use the Rainbow because it supports LGBT, kindly remind them it’s GOD’s Rainbow and we’re using the accurate 7 colors not the counterfeit!
Here’s more that I found on the topic, in an EXCELLENT summary from RforH.com:
In 1978 San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker created his version of the rainbow flag in response to a local activist’s call for the need of a community symbol. Baker dyed and sewed the material for the first flag himself and it had 8 colors. This multi-colored flag morphed into a banner of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender movement, which is commonly referred to today as LGBT.
Each of the colors had a specific meaning:
Hot Pink for sex
Red for life
Orange for healing
Yellow for sun
Green for serenity with nature
Turquoise for art
Indigo for harmony
Violet for spirit.
On November 27, 1978, the openly gay San Francisco City Supervisor Harvey Milk was assassinated. As a consequence the demand for the flag greatly increased. So, in order to meet the demand, the Paramount Flag Company began selling a version of the flag using stock rainbow fabric consisting of seven stripes of red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, and violet. Baker eventually dropped the hot pink color because he couldn’t find the fabric.
In 1979 the flag was hung vertically from the lamp posts of San Francisco’s Market Street. Because of the width of the seven stripe flag the center stripe was covered up by the post itself. In order to fix this problem they changed the design to have an even number of stripes so they dropped the turquoise stripe. That left them with the six stripe version of the flag that we see today consisting of — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.
So, even though the LGBT flag might be called by the name of God’s token of promise to all mankind, it’s NOT a true rainbow. God’s rainbow has always had seven colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
God’s rainbow doesn’t have to change colors because of a lack of “fabric” or not fitting on a lamp post. No, God’s rainbow still is a promise that He will not destroy man by flood waters ever again. Next time it will be by fire!
Seven has always been the number of colors used in rainbow flags throughout the centuries, so a flag with fewer than seven colors isn’t really a rainbow flag…it’s just a multi-colored flag.
Throughout human history, we find those things which are in opposition to God’s will and ways are often simply counterfeit copies. Such copies might come close, but they always fall short. All false religions have enough truth to sound good, but they all teach lies often using subtle twists of the truth. That was Satan’s ploy in the Garden. He tempted Eve not by presenting a totally false teaching but by twisting God’s Word. With subtle deception, he created confusion and caused Eve to forget God’s words and commit sin.
Satan never presents himself in truth, as the accuser that he is. Instead he is able to transform himself into an “angel of light,” and his minions are able to transform into “ministers of righteousness” (2 Cor 11:14-15), all with intent to deceive. They may “look” good, but they are nothing more than “copy-cat” appearances of that which is good, and their desire is to lead people away from the One True God who is omni-benevolent (all good).
God created the rainbow and it belongs to Him. God’s rainbow has seven colors. Interestingly, according to Strong’s Dictionary, even the word “rainbow” has seven letters (qesheth). God’s rainbow represents His goodness, His mercy and grace, His love and longsuffering, and, most of all, it is a reminder that His promises are true and faithful. The true rainbow will never represent, nor can it ever celebrate, any sinful behavior.
I hope you’ll never look at the LGBT flag in the same way again. It is NOT a rainbow flag, falling short with only six colors. And it certainly does not represent God’s rainbow. The LGBT community uses a multi-colored flag that falls short in every way….especially in what it represents.
I told you that was an awesome summary!
Now you know “the rest of the story” (apologies to Paul Harvey).
And here’s what Franklin Graham recently said on the issue, from Newsweek:
Prominent Evangelist Franklin Graham thanked President Donald Trump and the U.S. State Department for helping deny embassies’ requests to fly the rainbow flag during Pride Month.
The son of late U.S. evangelist Billy Graham and current president of the Samaritan’s Purse took to Facebook Saturday to applaud Trump and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for “making the decision not to fly the gay flag over our embassies” in June. Thousands of his more than 7 million social media followers appeared to support Graham’s claim that rainbow-adorned gay pride flags are “offensive” to Christians and much of the country.
State Department sources last week reportedly confirmed the agency had denied multiple diplomatic requests to fly the rainbow pride flag on official embassy flagpoles this month in honor of LGBT Pride Month.
“I want to thank President Donald J. Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for making the decision not to fly the gay flag over our embassies during June in recognition of gay pride month. That is the right decision,” Graham, 66, wrote on Facebook over the weekend.
“The gay pride flag is offensive to Christians and millions of people of other faiths, not only in this country but around the world. The U.S. flag represents our nation—everyone—regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation,” the North Carolina native added.
LGBTQ activists say the recent decision to reportedly deny embassies in Brazil, Germany, Latvia and Israel from flying the rainbow pride flag on official flag poles is just the latest affront to gay rights since Pompeo took over the State Department in April 2018.

Dozens of top replies of the more than 30,000 responses to Graham’s Saturday Facebook post also applauded the State Department and Trump for pushing gay people, as one poster said, “to realize the sin that they are all doing and turn from the wicked ways!”
“God meant the rainbow for a promise to his creation. Satan is very good at taking what God meant for good & turning it to evil. The Gay Pride- rainbow. Pride also being a sin against God—- we are not better or greater than HE!” wrote another Graham supporter.
Graham frequently weighs in on Twitter and Facebook over social issues he claims are an affront to Christian conservatives. Last month, Graham told openly gay South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg that God has laws and standards against what he described as the sin of being homosexual.
