Just Like In The Days of Noah

“When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.  Matthew 24:37-39 (NLT)

If you have watched the movie “Noah” debuted in 2014, you probably had been misled totally. God, the Father is not a psychotic madman out for blood as depicted in the movie. The “people” who were merrying in the banquets and parties, as Noah stepped into the Ark; were not normal human beings. They were very much “monsters” birthed out of wedlock from demons (fallen sons of God – fallen angels) and human women (Genesis 6); also known as giants or Nephilites. God saw the extent of this wickedness on the earth, and He saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil.

He did what needed to be done.

You see, what God had done was not a genocide, but a restoration to the original order. The world then had became corrupt and was filled with violence. And God had observed all this corruption in the world. For Noah and his household, it was probably a really difficult time to live in the midst of all the chaos and evil. So when God made an escape plan for Noah and wiped out the rest of the corrupted world, God in essence was delivering and restoring to Noah a higher form of living.

In the same way, in this new year, 2015; God wants to deliver His redeemed people, that’s you and I, from this corrupted world to a higher form of living; a divine victorious way of life. With so many mindless killings, deaths, disasters, tragedies, vicious virus and economic turmoil; God, our Father wants to bring and restore His people back to His divine order and coverings. Just as Noah stepped into the Ark; we the new covenant people can also step into our Deliverer, Jesus Christ, our Saviour.

The Lord will bring us above and beyond reach from the judgement. And although we may still see and hear the destructions all around us, we will be protected from them as we stay safe within our Ark – Christ.

In this new year, the Ark is waiting, the rain is coming; it is time to step into the Ark – to reaffirm the relationship with Your Lord and Saviour.


Psalm 121:5-8 The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.
