This year’s attention to the Ebola has caused us to examine procedures all over the world to eliminate the virus. The ability to control it has been questioned and eradication has been determined to be the only way to save the world from Pandemic. That is what God faced at the time of Noah. Men had become so evil that God needed to eradicate evil completely. The attempt to control sin and men became futile. There disregard for God was celebrated. As Noah, his family and a collection of animals from all over the world rested on the Ark, God wiped out every living thing left on earth.
There really is a tipping point. There comes a time when the independence from God and worship of the created over the creator becomes the law of the land. We see it in Genesis, Judges, Isaiah an Romans. We are also seeing it in the world today. Millions of dollars are spent annually to attempt to eradicate God from all things that are public. Conversely, Billions are spent to worship self, stuff and sex. The World has once again moved to the point where God is not welcome.
We need to take a stand–we can follow the Lord. We can pray, follow the Lord and train our kids to love God. If we do, God is always willing to forgive and restore. Once again, in 2 Chronicles 7:14, says, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” We can make the difference, but we have to affirmatively choose to Worship God and God Alone!!! Join me, will you?
God Bless You
For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. 18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits.[a][b] 21 Every living thing that moved on land perished—birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. 22 Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 23 Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.
24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.
