Genesis 6:11-13 Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight, and the earth was filled with violence. And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. And God said to Noah, “I have determined to make an end of all flesh; for the earth is filled with violence through them; behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Matthew 24:37-39 As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man.
This movie that I am reading about, “Noah” and all the things that are being said against it from every quarter of society is, I find, quite appropriate for the days in which we live. Take a look at the scriptures in the Bible that talk about the reasons that the Creator destroyed the earth and all its inhabitants, was it not because of all the corruption and violence and every evil thought that was so against His word, that book of instructions as to how to live a quiet and peaceable life. Talk about wars and rumors of wars, where is that love of neighbor as oneself and love of God with all your strength and mind and heart? I am honestly appalled at the lack of the Fear of God I see all around the world.
Psalm 139:14 (The Voice Bible Version) I will offer You my grateful heart, for I am Your unique creation, filled with wonder and awe. You have approached even the smallest details with excellence; Your works are wonderful; I carry this knowledge deep within my soul.
