Genesis chapter 6 tells us the most sovereign warning issued by God after Creation " the destruction of the earth through the Great Flood because of the great wickedness of man. But did the Flood really happen or not? What are the evidences? Is it just a myth? And if it is true, how does it impact our lives?

All over the world, hundreds of stories are recorded about a great flood. Most of the stories talk about a global flood, the wickedness of man, a favored family, a boat and animals being saved. Evidence of the Great Flood can be found in the Chinese character for “boat.” This character is a combination of the words for “ship”, “eight,” and “people.” Geological findings such as the marine fossils found on Mt. Everest as well as the folded formation of sedimentary rocks of the Grand Canyon point to the occurrence of a great flood.

The problem is not lack of evidence, but it is prejudice in the heart of people. History, literature, science, archaeology, etc. all present evidences to prove the Great Flood. But if people do not want to believe, no amount of evidence will convince them that it really happened. They would rather look for ways to disprove it. Actually, the problem is our heart. If we do not want to believe in the flood, no amount of evidence will convince us that it really happened.

Even Jesus Himself, believed in the story of Noah. He paralleled the end times with the days of Noah. “For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be” (Matthew 24:38-39). Like the days of Noah, today, people are so busy with the activities of the world that they do not heed God’s warning.

God warns us to be alert, as we do not know the day of Jesus’ Second Coming (Matthew 24:42). The truth of the past teaches us what to do (2 Peter 3:11-12). We have no excuse. Our response must be to heed God’s warning. How do you heed God's warning?

Be Faithful

In Genesis 6:14-17 God gave Noah definite instructions about the ark he was to build and the flood God was about to send. Noah had no concept of rain and flood. But Noah obeyed God’s instructions anyway (Hebrews 11:7).  Noah was faithful because he knew God and had faith in Him. In the same way the faith that God desires in us is not one that is temporary and fleeting but faith that is enduring.

Live Wisely

Ephesians 5:15-18 admonishes us “To be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Just like Noah in Gen. 6:8-9, God wants us consistently walking according to His ways and will, finding favor in the eyes of God despite the sin that surrounds us. Let us be imitators of God, making the most of our time with what is important, which is the advancement of the gospel.  

The ark points to Jesus and is a picture of salvation. When Noah entered the ark, God shut the door (Genesis 7:16). Inside the ark, Noah and his family were under God’s protection, as we are when we believe in Jesus Christ. Those who did not heed God’s warning were outside the ark and suffered destruction. If you have trusted in Christ but are living in sin, do not wait until disaster strikes. Heed God’s warning now!
