In light of historic and almost biblical proportion of rainfall and flooding, do consider just how quick and how high, and how deadly water rises after a mere few INCHES of rain in an hour or so.
Towns erased as it were, some with nary a loss of life, so don’t you dare try to tell me God is not good. It is within His rights to take His giant hand of grace away from His creation, since mankind has pretty much forfeited his rights to the title deed of the earth, by DISMISSING God from His very terra firma.
That’s right, by word, deed, principle and practice, man has become the very cesspool that he finds in others. Of course there are exceptions, there are Some who have not bowed the knee to DeGrasse, Nye, Hollywood, the lying gods of evolution and atheism, CNN, NPR, (Fox is not always innocent either) and the sinister henchmen who line their pockets with the preaching of that false gospel called ‘global warming.’
And I am being entirely too kind by calling these people sinister- for the floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, hail, freezing weather, intense heat, are all but part and parcel of the four winds which alone control the land we call home, aka, the earth. But I digress.
To gripe about flooding without recognizing the Creator of water is well, not too smart, stupid even. People complain with utter disdain about the impossibility of the water from the rock of Moses, while speaking with the forked tongue that evolution in fact produced the oceans of the world from that little rock and the so called big bang to begin with! Idiots I tell ya. Too much head banging perhaps.
But the floods. ‘As it was in the days of Noah.’ Of course people will laugh, ignore, despise, mock, try to embarrass others, as they ridicule God Himself and His very recording of His doings, but they miss ENTIRELY that it has not rained for 40 days and forty nights since………just as God promised.
……….He is good like that, keeping His oath to Himself. God cannot lie. It is not that He can and chooses not to, but He CANNOT. This is why God’s word is despised. It is good, because He is good. This is why Christ was despised. He told the truth because He is the Truth. Light has this effect on darkness. Turn the light on in a dark room and watch the night critters head for the hills.
But we go about our ways, and rebuke God for our temporary inconviences, while forgetting and ignoring ten thousand days of health and prosperity. I think of the clowns who had their amusement at the expense of Noah as he built a rather large vessel. Imagine the social media of the day, with people drawing cartoon images of a man and his family as the ‘retardation of the species,’ those unfit to grace the dirt of the earth while they ‘believe’ there is a God above all, with Whom we have to do. Yeah, Noah was just a fool.
But it is safe to say that Mr. Noah was a gracious man, a hard working honest craftsman, whose skill would no doubt exceed even the expertise of the mortise and tenon work of the Amish, and King Solomon, that other excellent builder.
But what is ‘even as it was in the days of Noah?’ It is not a flood let me tell you. It is daily life, going to and fro, nothing unusual, people marrying the same sex, opposite sex, some even dare to marry a horse. ‘Even as it was.’ Some living as if they were animals themselves, others oblivious to decency and law, others creating mayhem and mischief, stealing, lying, and others of course, with one sharp eye on the goodness of God while being careful to remember that earth is but a temporary place, with the sun and moon also testifying to the fleeting of time.
So what’s it to be? Who and what gets your vote? Is it the goodness of God, or is it the decadence of man in which you place you trust? It’s a no -brainer if we engage the God given brain.
(And do remember that the world is darn near 75% water………. But this is irrelevant……yeah, sure, okay)
