I wrote this blog not to scare but to share. Typhoon Haiyan is one of the strongest that hit earth, estimated casualty was about 4,000 people out 7 billion on planet earth. As my friend reminded me there are earlier typhoons equal or greater than Haiyan even though Haiyan is stronger than Camille, Katrina etc.
Back to the mother of all typhoons, what I had in mind is the flood during the time of Noah. Water came from above and below. It flooded the whole earth and only eight people survived. How did I know this ? The Bible tells me so. The eight people survived led by Noah, by building the ark that God told Noah to build. Out of these eight people God repopulated the earth. We are almost 8 billion, so out of the eight, people are multiplied a billion times.
Will this flood of this magnitude happen again ? No, God promised that He will not send water anymore to destroy the earth.
Here on earth we experience war, famine, sickness, earthquake , typhoon, accidents , deaths ,etc., so what should we do? My suggestion or recomendation, come to Jesus.
Make sure our faith in God and in Jesus is real. Believe it or not, Jesus is God's present version of Noah's ark. And in Jesus we can survive any storm here and in the days to come. We will be safe for eternity, as long as we stay in the ark. Jesus is the ark of the covenant.
