Noah’s Ark

Noah’s Ark!

“HE wiped out every living thing that was on the surface of the ground, from mankind to livestock, to creatures that crawl, to the birds of the sky, and they were wiped off the earth! Only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark!” Genesis 7:23

Finally, the frightful morning began! The heavens gathered blackness. Angry tempests conflicted in the skies. The lightnings flashed over the world! Word was spread, that Noah and his family had entered into the ark. The ungodly then began to fear!

Before long, floods of water poured from the sky. Some now began to turn their eyes towards the ark; others stood doubting; others still dared to scoff!

The waters go on to increase. The rivers fill–and start to overflow. The waters begin to rise in the streets. Some flee into their houses; others, more intimidated, hasten to the hills! Others are now convinced, and with dreadful fright, are seen wading towards the ark!

The fountains of the great deep are now broken up! The waters rise more rapidly, and begin to rush with impetuous force. With difficulty they stand against the stream. They struggle for their lives to reach the ark! Thousands come–some wading, some swimming, some sinking, some hanging onto the ark with the grasp of death–all screaming for admission!

But it is too late! Time was, when the ark was open and they might have entered in–but that time is past! Where are now those tongues which derided the enormous vessel and the man who built it? Now what do you think of him–who for more than a century has borne the character of a fool and madman! They would give a thousand worlds–to be in his condition now!

Those nearest to the ark, cry and plead for admission, but in vain! The waters roar! The ark is lifted up! They sink and are seen no more!

By this time, every wretch on earth is thoroughly convinced. Hear their cries from the tops of the houses, which are answered by wails from those on the hills. See the multitudes who have fled to the mountains. How like frightened sheep they crowd together! Now the waters, roaring and foaming, have reached their feet! They flee up to the highest ridge–but the floods pursue them there! Some are able to climb the lofty oaks–and the waves overtake them there! They flee to the highest branches, and for a moment have time to reflect on their former madness: “How could I disbelieve the Lord’s prophet? Where is now the ark which I scorned? Where am I going? O eternity! eternity! What a dreadful God have I despised!” On the topmost bough, the impetuous torrent sweeps them away! Their hold is broken–and they sink to rise no more!

The ark floats by–and sails over the heads of the revilers and persecutors! Only that blessed family in the ark are safe!

The same terrors will seize an unbelieving world when Jesus comes again! “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and swept them all away! That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man!” Matthew 24:37-39

  1. I’ve heard similar descriptions of the Flood before. However, it seems to me as I read Genesis and our Lord’s further comment in Matthew 24:39 that “they were all unaware until the flood came and took them all away,” that the Flood came like a tsunami and just swept them away. There was no time and no warning. They had had decades of “warning,” and it was too late.

    • Amen! I too was completely blind to God and His Kingdom for the first 29 years of my life, living for myself and my desires. But God saved me…and i constantly keep asking why??

      I also have many thoughts like this post and it shows in a little way what i was saved from. It brings me to my knees and i thank God for what He has done for us.

      Thanks for this great comment and for taking time to read, like and meet with me here! God bless you. 😀

      • One of your other readers commented on the recent change in your posts and you responded about the Puritans having a much more serious view of things. Indeed, they did. The understood the reality of the justice and wrath of God – lost ideas in this day. Thank you for posting them, and for following my blog.

  2. What a very real portrayal of the terror that faces those who ignore God’s warnings. Thank you for this reminder that we serve a God who desires that all people be saved and who longs for all to come to Him.

  3. Steve what happened i mean your content has changed from the high flying Christian to dooms day preacher

    • Hi James! Lol. At the moment i’m studying/researching the 17th, 18th & 19th century preachers and men of God. So my recent post have been a lot more hard hitting as they didn’t try to be people pleasers or try to water down the Gospel to suit the listeners.

      I hope this blog is still balanced and a pillar of Truth, I have been so convicted by the way they wrote and simply preached the word, bad news and good news. I am noticing that the Gospel is often neglected in our church services today.

      Thank you so much(as always) for stopping by and leaving a great challenging comment. I was wondering if anyone would notice i’ve been posting puritan quotes and they are a lot more serious! God bless you James. 😀

  4. A amazing description of what may have happened. Like today they had plenty of warning. We need to listen today as well or we will miss out on the rapture. Blessings!

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
