The Flood - Beware of Scoffers

Fossils speak of death, and death speaks of sin and judgment, not of creation and development.  When correctly interpreted, whether theologically or scientifically, this world- wide witness in the very earth itself testifies of a sovereign Creator who controls and judges His creation.  Rather than evolutionary progress over many ages, these stones cry out concerning a judicial termination of one age.

The Biblical record is complete with a first hand account of that great hydrodynamic convulsion with which God judged the wickedness of the antediluvian world.  Whatever geological problems may be suggested, there can no longer be any question that, if the word of God be true, the Genesis Flood was a world covering, cataclysmic judgment imposed by the strong hand of God.

Because we live in a world of scoffers please join me in II Peter 3 and see what the Lord tells us what to do when you find yourself in a world that denies their Maker!

*       TRUST THE WORD v. 2

*       EXPECT THE SCOFFERS v. 3

*       RESIST THE LIE v. 4

*       AFFIRM THE CREATOR v. 5

*       REMEMBER THE JUDGE v. 6

*       ESCAPE THE FIRE v. 7

*       SEEK THE SAVIOR v. 8-9 

It will be a moment of sheer terror when unbelievers face a holy God and realize with absolute certainty that they are eternally lost. That must have been the feeling of the people of Noah's day when they saw the flood waters rise above their heads and knew the door to the ark was unalterably shut.
