Noah preached righteousness for 120 years. Only few got into the Ark to find refuge from the flood.
Today people preach the Gospel of Salvation to get people into Christ. The Gospel was given as a means for fallen man to get into Christ. Getting into Christ means becoming a member of Christ’s body. God’s Holy Spirit puts you into Christ. Scriptures teach by one Spirit we are all baptized into one body. 1 Cor. 12:13
Get into Christ and then stay in Christ. Don’t miss the boat. Don’t miss Christ. God’s Judgment was the flood in the days of Noah. God’s Judgment will be with fire after the Rapture of the Church.
Jesus is like an Ark that saved many from the Judgment of the flood. Being a member of Christ’s body gives the child of God refuge from the Judgment of fire and devastation that is coming. The Rapture is the Churches escape from God’s future Judgment.
There are some who don’t believe in a Judgment of come. There are some who don’t even believe in Hell. Many do not want to face the fact of the Great and terrible day of the Lord spoken of in the Bible.
The Church won’t be here to experience God’s future Judgment. The Church will escape God’s Wrath where the Bible states the elements will melt with fervent heat. The Church the body of Christ is like an infinite ark that saves people from God’s future Judgment.
Noah warned people of such Judgment. The Bible likewise makes such comparison and warning. Look at the contrast between Noah’s Ark and souls being saved by getting put into the Church, the body of Christ.
1 Peter 3:19-22…By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
The Church – the body of Christ is a like figure to that of Noah’s Ark. The Church saves all of its members from the filth of the flesh (in the present tense) and the Judgment to come (in the future tense). Jesus and the power of His resurrection are like an Ark. He saves us when we find refuge in His body.
Get into Christ, now and stay there. Don’t wait. Today is the day of Salvation! This includes young and old. Don’t wait! Get into Christ now. Many people wait until its to late! Get in now! Being in Christ is a better life than a life of sin and disobedience to God. Being a member of Christ’s body will save your soul and provide holiness of conduct every day of your existence on this side of Heaven. A child of God is prepared to go up – when God’s curtain comes down.
Get into Christ before its to late. Teens, Elderly, scholarly, Theologians, business people, poor people, destitute, educated, uneducated, masters, servants…doesn’t matter. There is refuge in Christ. Get into Christ before its to late. After you get in…stay in and be blessed.
