Whose bow is it after all?

Right after the flood, when Noah came forth out of the ark, he builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

And the Lord smelled a sweet saviour [BBQ lamb chops] 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.

And God blessed Noah and spake to him saying behold I establish my covenant with you and your seed after you. This is the token of the covenant. I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant. 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.

The above are words compiled from the account of the Flood in Genesis Chapter 9. To me, it is quite clear that God put HIS bow in the cloud. He looks upon it and remembers a covenant He made towards ALL flesh (you and me included).

God spoke of an "everlasting covenant". Today, the rainbow (or what God called "my bow") is used to tell a very different story.

Can someone explain to me, please, how did we get from there to here. Or may be the Lord just knew what would happen, when close to five thousand years ago, he said the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth.

13 in the Bible

The consistency of numerical patterns in the Bible is one of many infallible proofs of its inspiration. Remember the Bible is made up of 66 books written by 38 authors across 1800 years in 3 languages on 3 continents, by people of all walks of life writing against their own people and government. With this said, observe:

1. The 5 kings rebel against Chedorlaomer king of Elam in the 13th year. (Genesis 14:4)

2. 13 is Ishmael’s age when he was circumcised. Ishmael was “born after the flesh” (Galatians 4:29)

3. Haman’s commandment “to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, […]and to take the spoil of them for a prey.” was written on the 13th day of the 1st month. The day for carrying out the commandment was to be year later to the day, on the 13th of the 1st month, according to (Esther 3 verse 13).

4. Nimrod, a type of the antichrist, is the 13th from Adam (1 Chronicles 1:10)

5. Manasseh, the most evil king of Judah, is the 13th king from the division of the kingdom.

6. It took Solomon 7 years to finish the house of God (1 Kings 6:38). He spends 13 years on his own house. ( 1 Kings 7:1)

7. Jeremiah begins prophesying in the 13th year of Josiah. The Jews never hearken to him (Jeremiah 1:2, 25:3)

8. Jesus lists 13 evil things that proceed out of a man’s heart in Mark 7:21-22

Rome shows up as the 13th region in Acts 2:10.

10. The beast shows up in Revelation 13.

11. “Dragon” appears 13 times in Revelation.

12· Dagon (god of the philistines and one letter removed from dragon) appears 13 times in
the Bible.
