Flood of God’s Wrath!

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 took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

Matthew 24:37-39

Can you imagine how it must have been for those who were alive when the flood came and covered the entire earth? It was just a cloudy day. Then it became a heavy rain and storm. Then it became a flash flood. Finally a serious flood was upon them and even that did not stop. It was unprecedented. Nothing like this had ever happened before.

“Is this what that old man Noah had predicted? But Noah was an idiot! Who could believe his ranting?” Then there was no turning back the judgment of God on the world. The time for repentance had ended. There was no more time for revival. God had decided to destroy the earth and everyone in it except Noah and his immediate family. God baptized the earth and cleansed it from all wickedness.

God promised never again to destroy the earth with water. You can rest assured that there will not be another world wide flood. But God’s judgment of wickedness has never ended. He will deal with evil. There is only one way to avoid the recompense of God for evil. That way is by repentance which results in revival.

The grace of God does not ignore evil. Evil is either dealt with by the blood of Jesus or it is dealt with by the wrath of God. Evil is either covered by the blood and wiped away by its cleansing power, or it is covered by the flood of God’s wrath and burned away in the fire of His judgment.

The days of Noah are being repeated on this earth. This time God’s judgment will come with the return of Jesus to the earth. Will you be Noah or part of the wicked world which is oblivious to the imminent coming judgment of God? Don’t be fooled. Be ready!
