Our Lord Jesus says His return will be like the days of Noah.Let us ask who is Noah and what are his days ? According to the Bible , Noah is a man who existed long time ago. While other human beings were doing their own thing, Noah found grace in the eyes of God.
Basically the God who created man looked at His creations and see if anyone is calling after Him, but He saw that man were minding their own ways, not paying any attention to Him. God thought about destroying man but Noah found grace in the eyes of the God. So Noah was told to build an ark, or a vessel like the modern ships we have now. At that time the Bible says there were no rains then and at that time there is water in the atmosphere which more like seas in the atmosphere. People were living over 500 years old.
People laughed at Noah when they saw him building the ark. Patiently Noah warned the people while he kept building. As the story went no one believed Noah and so the flood came and destroyed man leaving just Noah, his wife , their three sons and their wives and from them we have the over 7 billion people we have now.
Are we different from the days of Noah ? Look around us, and we see a very busy world, we hardly have time for God. Television and movies and computers and the internet which is our window to the world, to the world of entertaiment, sports, travel, etc. Man live and work to have and enjoy what looks like the pleasure of life.
At this point, we may be asking what is wrong with the pleasures of life ? This can be answered by asking ourselves what is our priority God or the things money can buy ?
I hope we will choose God first and His kingdom and righteousness and God promised He will give us our needs.
