STEEMCHURCH - The end of the world? PART 2
Welcome to my blog
God bless you!
And the Lord closed the door.
Enter through the narrow door (Jesus Christ); because the door is wide ... that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter through it.
Noah climbed into the ark and God closed the door. Then, for forty days and forty nights, a flood of water submerged the earth. Everything was destroyed, except Noah and those who were with him in the ark floating above the waters.
Thus God's plan was fulfilled, and Noah was saved because he obeyed God.
Today, as in Noah's time, many men and women seem to ignore that God will not endure forever for humanity to violate its laws and moral principles. Violence and immorality, so widely spread in today's world, will attract the terrible judgments that will precede the return of Jesus Christ to earth, as Sovereign, at a time that only God knows. The end of today's world will take place later, and will be followed by the creation of new heavens and a new earth (2 Peter 3: 12-13; Revelation 21: 1).
Today, the only way to escape God's judgment is not to build a "survival space." Noah's ark described in the Bible is only an image of what God has foreseen so that man can escape his anger and his judgment. To find grace in the eyes of God we must obey Him, that is, believe in Jesus Christ, the only means of salvation (John 5:24).
Even today God invites us to "enter the ark" through the only door of salvation, Jesus Christ. One day he will close the door of grace, and those who remain outside will have to endure their anger.
