The Rainbow Prophecy
"I do set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between Me and the Earth"
When the Flood had served its purpose, the waters receded back into the Earth (see the Fact Finder question below to understand that rain alone did not, and could not, cause a worldwide flood).
"8:13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
Noah remained in the Ark until the LORD commanded him to disembark from the long and stormy voyage.
"8:15 And God spake unto Noah, saying, 8:16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee. 8:17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth." (Genesis 8:15-17 KJV)
So the world was populated again by man, bird and beast.
"8:18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:
Noah then made a burnt offering with some of the clean creatures (see What Makes Creatures Clean or Unclean?).
"8:20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar." (Genesis 8:20 KJV)
The burnt offering pleased the LORD (to understand the history and meaning of burnt offerings, see The Burnt Offerings Of The Ancients).
"8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease." (Genesis 8:21-22 KJV)
Although to many today the "rainbow flag" is a symbol of sodomy, the true symbolism of the rainbow was about the destruction of those who choose to live in any manner that the LORD declares to be filthy and immoral i.e. an adulterer is just as evil in the sight of the LORD as a Sodomite (see Sexual Abominations). While there is not going to be another worldwide flood of water, there is coming a worldwide flood of fire to destroy those who pervert the clean and natural Law of God in any manner (see Who Were The People Born After Each Of The Three Worldwide Floods?).
"9:8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 9:9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 9:10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. 9:11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
Fact Finder: The Flood was not caused by rain alone. What actually caused the worldwide flood that made possible the covering of even high mountains?
This Day In History, April 7

1141: Matilda (also known as Empress Maude or Matilda of England) became the first female ruler of England with the title "Lady of the English."

1967: A few weeks before the outbreak of the Six Day War, a flight of Israeli fighter aircraft entered Syrian airspace and shot down 6 Syrian MiGs before circling freely over Damascus (see also Israel's Wars In The Twentieth Century).
1971: U.S. President Richard Nixon pledged a withdrawal of 100,000 more U.S. troops from interference in the Vietnam Civil War by the next December (see also Why Was Korea Divided Into North And South?).
1978: Development of the neutron bomb (high radiation that kills people but leaves cities relatively undamaged) was canceled by U.S. President Jimmy Carter because he believed that it would increase the possibility of nuclear war (see also Who Would Throw A Nuclear Boomerang?).

1985: Mikhail Gorbachev declared a moratorium on the deployment of Soviet middle-range missiles in Europe (see also Russia Or Europe - Who Has Been The Invader?).
1990: U.S. national security advisor John Poindexter was found guilty in the Iran-Contra scandal.
2003: U.S. and British invasion forces captured Baghdad, the capital city of Iraq. The government of Saddam Hussein collapsed 2 days later.
No "weapons of mass destruction" (the sole legal pretext, revised later after nothing was found, that was used by George W. Bush and Tony Blair for the invasion that devastated Iraq's civilian population and infrastructure) were ever found. Nor has there ever been found any connection between Saddam Hussein and the 9-11 terrorist attacks that were perpetrated by the al-Qaida terrorist organization. All of the suicide attackers entered the U.S. legally, directly from Saudi Arabia (the native country of Osama bin Laden) and Pakistan with tourist and student visas issued by U.S. Immigration (none of the terrorists entered the U.S. from Canada, a malicious myth that is still perpetuated by some who ignore the official U.S. immigration records).
Perhaps more ironic than the fact that Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, where all of the 9-11 terrorists came from, are regarded as among the closest allies against terrorism in the Middle East, Iraq, that had nothing to do with 9-11, faced the greatest retaliation after the 9-11 attacks. While, just like numerous other tyrants around the world that are conveniently (i.e. those with oil) or fearfully (those with the military ability to defend themselves from invasion) ignored, Saddam Hussein was a murderous dictator within his own country (although the invasion killed and maimed far more Iraqi civilians in a few years than Saddam Hussein ever did over decades), captured documents indicated that not only was Saddam Hussein not connected to the al-Qaida terrorist organization, he actually feared al-Qaida, and regarded it as a radical foreign threat to his own regime.
