God is ever willing to receive even the vilest offender that comes to Him. Whoever comes to Him He will in no wise refuse or turn back.
When we look at the three examples shared very closely, we will see a trend and a life of occurrences that is very similar to what is happening today. For instance, just like in the days of Noah, there are many men and women out there who are laughing at the church. There are several who even believe that there is no God. There are also those who believe there are several other ways to reach God and to make it to heaven other than through Jesus.
Jesus already expressly said that he is the way, the truth, and the life. Really, no one can ever even come close to God except by him. Just as men may have been mocking Noah for building the ark according to God’s instructions, even so people are mocking the church today. People are mocking the gospel that we preach. The enemy is also not at rest as he tries to manipulate the minds of people to lead them to believe that there is no God or that the God that we call upon is not God.
The enemy leads people to engage in pleasure and all kinds of abomination to satisfy their own fleshy desires.
The enemy leads people to engage in pleasure and all kinds of abomination to satisfy their own fleshy desires. But God desires to see many people saved. God wants us to come to him as we are. God is ever willing to receive even the vilest offender that comes to Him. Whoever comes to Him He will in no wise refuse or turn back. God is able to save to the uttermost.
Just as the ark closed and there was no way for men to come in again, even so will God close the door to salvation through faith when the rapture happens. Men and women will have to pay for their own salvation through their own death and blood. The price for salvation and for heaven has been fully paid by Jesus on the cross. However, it is only available for those who receive him as Lord and Savior. This is why the scripture says, “But as many as received him, to them he gave power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (Jn. 1:12, KJV). Those who receive Jesus have their names written in the book of life.
Everything that happened in the Old Testament is only a shadow of the New Testament. Whenever we allow the Holy Spirit to open up the scriptures to us, he shows us deep and secret things, which we have not seen or heard before then. Revelation is the key to understanding the scriptures. God’s word doesn’t just have one interpretation. The word of God (including all the stories written in scripture) contains eternal truths for us to live our lives by.
