Skeptical scientists question the possibility of a worldwide flood, and even more so the possibility of a man-made ark being the means of saving the air-breathing population of animals and humans. But what if it is true as the Bible consistently teaches? The story of the Bible is the story of God’s dealing, often miraculously, with the people He created. And that’s what we see vividly portrayed in today’s message. God’s judgement upon the sin of the human race through the cataclysmic worldwide flood was matched only by His miraculous salvation of Noah, his family and the animals in the ark. God today still promises judgement upon sinners, but has provided salvation for us in the person of His divine Son, Jesus Christ, who has taken that judgement in our place. We must all face the prospect of that day of judgement and only Jesus can save us when it comes. Are you trusting Him?
God made a covenant with Israel, but Israel broke that covenant and that led to big problems for Israel. God was not happy to let his people suffer and through Jeremiah, God promised a new covenant that couldn’t be broken. This promised new covenant began with the life and death of Jesus. By understanding the hopes of the Old Testament like this one, the life and work of Jesus takes on more meaning and colour.
One of the best known stories of the Bible is the story of Noah and the ark. But is it true? Could it really have happened? Should we believe it today? The answer to each of these questions is yes…yes…yes. This message begins a three part look at this incredible event. But more than the event itself, we look behind the scenes at why it happened and what it has to teach us about life today. Far more than a fascinating fairy story, the story of Noah is a potent warning to our generation about the danger of rejecting God, and our urgent need to find personal safety and security through faith in Jesus Christ.
