"The earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence" Genesis 6:11. Two characteristics of the Genesis account of the world prior to the flood was great moral depravity and violence. The parallells with today are undisputable as the world news portrays a shocking ammount of violence as if the whole world is errupting like a dormant volcano suddenly awakened and spewing forth. Jesus said prior to his return the times would be "as the days of Noah" and because of his faithfulness God is once again preparing a means of escape from Gods coming judgement. The ark was made of wood and held nails. The cross was made of wood and held nails. The ark had one door. Jesus said he was the door. All the promises of safety and a future are to be found in Christ, just as they were for Noah and his family in the ark. Run to Jesus Christ he is the only Saviour.
