Great Flood

Ecclesiastes 3:15

15Whatever is has already been, and  what will be has been before;and  God will call the past to account.

It narrates in Genesis 6:11-13, 11Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. 12God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. 13So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 

The Lord sent great flood to destroy all living things on earth during Noah’s time. For about 100 years Noah built an ark, and during the great flood, Noah and his family sought refuge inside the ark he built. Why did Noah take 100 years for him to build the ark? During those 100 years while building the ark, Noah may have been warning people who were curious about his ark that a great flood was coming. The great flood serves as warning that this present earth will be totally destroyed.

It says in 2 Peter 3:10-13, 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. 11Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

In the past, the Lord warned, and only Noah and his family believed, and they were saved from the great flood. The Lord warns of the ends times, and believers will be saved. While anyone may claim to have received eternal life, our lifestyle should reflect the reality of being assured of eternal life. Christ’s Spirit is God’s guarantee of our salvation. Do you sense the presence of Christ’s Spirit in your life? Make sure that the fruit of Spirit reflects in your lifestyle…

Lord Jesus, please assert Your Lordship over my life even when I am not aware of it.
