Flood and The Blood
-- Recently our church presented a drama of Noah and the Ark, complete
with a massive wooden ship right in the sanctuary. There were many terrific animals
in the production, including a 1400-pound zebra, an alligator, a python, a leopard,
a lion, some monkeys, birds, and you name it. Thousands of children, teens, and
adults sat there with eyes like golf balls--especially when the storm hit with
thunder, winds, and rain!
I have wondered what this planet was like before
the great deluge. Many believe that there was more living space on Earth then,
compared to the present 58,000,000 square miles that are only about a third of
the total surface. Some believe that England was connected to the mainland of
Europe before the flood. Fossils of plants have been found in great deserts such
as the Sahara, indicating that there was once lush vegetation there.
think that the eastern coast of North America extended much farther eastward into
the Atlantic and in the northern parts was even connected to Europe. We believe
that western Kansas was once underwater and the home of great marine reptiles.
Genesis 6 begins the amazing story of Noah, a man of faith and conviction
who God used to spare humanity. Over a period of decades, he and his boys laboriously
constructed that 450-feet long Ark that would carry family and a bunch of animals
to safety. The Ark was made of wood, the same as another implement of divine safety,
the cross of Jesus Christ.
In Noah's time, those who availed themselves
of the Ark survived. In our day, those who avail themselves of the blood of the
Cross have abundant life beyond measure.
