In the Days of Noah
by David Rives
In biblical history we learn that there came a time when wickedness filled the land. Even so, there was a righteous man who found grace in God’s sight. He was given instructions on the building of a ship which would preserve the lives of everyone on board. God revealed that He would send a flood to destroy everything that was not sealed in the ship.
Noah built the ark as commanded, and prepared for the coming flood, while the rest of the world continued as they were, too caught up in their daily lives.
The deluge that came wiped the earth clean, and after the waters had receded, the ark was opened, and life began anew.
We read that God “spared not the old world, but saved Noah…a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly” (2 Peter 2:5).
