The Flood Is Coming
By Brian Price 01/07/2014

"And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all." - Luke 17:26-27

We read here in Luke chapter 17 about Noah, and how Jesus described the catastrophe of the pre-flood world. Notice that Jesus said, "They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all." In other words, Jesus was essentially saying that life was going on as usual. The day of the flood was like any other day. People were getting married, they were having children, people were going to work, and life was going on as usual. But after Noah entered into the ark, the Bible says that the flood came and destroyed them all.

In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina became the most expensive natural disaster the United States has ever seen. It claimed more than 1,800 lives. In December 2013, Typhoon Haiyan struck the coasts of the Philippines. The typhoon killed more than 6,000 people, and displaced more than 3.9 million people. For these people, the final moments leading up to their deaths were as any other day. Perhaps they were buying and selling, getting married, or having children. But the day that the flood came for them, these thousands of people perished. Friend, you or I are no exception to the rule of death. Death sometimes comes with little to no warning.

There are hundreds of tales and stories that recount the loss of lives due to disasters. The point that Jesus was trying to make here was that of the end of the world. When the end comes, the Bible says that man will become more precious than fine gold. That means that the loss of life will be so high that mankind will become a rare find. So what can one do to prepare for such an event? Repent.

Jesus said, "Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." - Luke 13:2-5
