Will God Destroy the Earth Again by Flood?

In Noah days, humankind are so evil that it cause God to regret of creating them. As a result, he decided to destroy them with flood. Only Noah found favor in God’s eyes. Noah is obedient and always do what God says so God decided to spare his life. God commanded Noah to build an ark so that he could save himself, his family members and the animals. Noah is to bring two of every kind of creatures into the ark with him during the floor so that they will be kept alive. Noah is to take every kind of food for himself and the animals. When the flood ended, the ark came to rest on the Ararat mountain.

The first thing that Noah did is to offer a sacrifice of some of the clean animals and birds to God. When God smell the pleasing aroma of the sacrifice, he decided not to destroy all living creatures with flood water again as he has done even though mankind are subjected to sin. Romans 3:23 states that all men have sinned and fall short of God’s glory. The earth needs a savior to save and deliver them from their sins. God put a rainbow in the sky as a sign of the covenant he made with Noah. The rainbow always appear after rain.

However, this does not mean that there will be no more flood again. The covenant that God made with Noah is that he will not destroy the creations in the entire earth with flood waters again. During the last days, those who are left behind from the rapture will have to experience the calamities. Different natural disasters will occur when Jesus comes back for the second time including storm, earthquake, flood, and etc.

God showed his intolerance towards sin via Noah’s flood. He was merciful to Noah an save him and his family because he was righteous. He made the first covenant in the bible with Noah. The flood did not get rid of the sinful nature of humankind. We are all used to be dead in our sins. We used to be slaves to our sins and belong to the devil. Despite that, God loves us and decided to offer his salvation by sending his son, Jesus Christ to come to the earth to die for our sins.

In 2 Peter 3:5-7, Peter prophesied that God will destroy the earth with fire one day just as how God destroyed all living beings by flood in Noah days. This will be the final judgment just as how it was with the deluge that took place globally during Noah days. Now is the time to repent. We should not be like those who die during the days of Noah. They made fun of Noah’s warning and did not prepare for the day the flood came. Noah trusted in God and built the ark.

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (2 Peter 3:5-7 KJV)

Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. (James 4:17 KJV)

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23 KJV)

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:8-10 KJV)

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23 KJV)

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. (Galatians 5:13-26 KJV)

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7 KJV)

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:16-17 KJV)

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. (1 John 3:4 KJV)

All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. (1 John 5:17 KJV)

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 3:23 KJV)

And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. (Isaiah 35:8 KJV)

And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine. (Leviticus 20:26 KJV)

If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work. (2 Timothy 2:21 KJV)

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; (1 Peter 2:9 KJV)

For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. (1 Thessalonians 4:7 KJV)

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23 KJV)

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: (Hebrews 12:14 KJV)

As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. (1 Peter 1:14-16 KJV)

Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. (1 John 3:6-10 KJV)

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1 KJV)

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV)
