I read Genesis 7 and I meditated on the theme “The Flood and The Coming Of Christ.”
The flood can be compared to The Coming Of Christ. Before the flood, men had the possibility to repent and change their behavior in order to please God, but once the door of the ark was closed and the flood began, it was too late.
“The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the Lord shut him in.
For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth.” Genesis 7:16-17
Similarly today, God gives everyone time to repent and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in order to enter the ark, in this case Eternal Life. When Christ returns, The Ark’s Door (Eternal Life) will be closed.
“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of The Son Of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:26-27
Each of us should watch and prepare for The Coming Of The Lord Jesus by accepting Him as Lord and Savior and walking according to The Way Of God at all times because we know neither the day nor the hour.
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.” Matthew 25:13
