Noah and the Flood

"They were totally unconcerned until the flood came and destroyed them." Matthew 24:39

Is there proof that Noah really existed, that he built an ark, and a great flood destroyed much of the earth? We may or may not believe the proof gathered by subsurface radar scans, metal detector surveys, chemical analyses, and archaeological finds made by a group of scientists who found the shape of a large ship in a mountain in Turkey near its border with Iran. Robert Ballard, a respected archaeologist who found the Titanic, believes the flood really happened because of an ancient shoreline he unearthed. 

But I do not need scientific proof. Jesus believes it and that's good enough for me. In Matthew 24, Jesus warns that His second coming will be just like what happened in the days of Noah. People would be going about their business, totally unconcerned about God and His instructions. In Genesis 6, we see that Noah is described as a good man. Why? Because he walked with God. And the earth was described as a "sewer"!!! There was violence and corruption and depravity. Here in the Philippines, I can see that we can be described as a sewer too! Extra judicial killings, people resigning en masse because of corruption, disgusting questions asked by Congressmen in a House justice committee hearing. 

Lord, teach us to walk with You, to learn Your ways. I do not have to wait for Your second coming. May I be faithful so that one day You will come for me!

  1. Thank you for this reminder that we need to walk intimately with Jesus every day, especially in these last days when there are so many things to distract us from fixing our eyes on him. Your painting is beautiful and you are an inspiration.
    Blessing hugs,


I am so glad you dropped by! You are a blessing!
