God Has Not Closed The Door Yet


“It Is Time To Get In The Ark”

13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make yourself an ark…” Genesis 6:13-14a NKJV

 

13 That very day Noah had gone into the boat with his wife and his sons—Shem, Ham, and Japheth—and their wives. 14 With them in the boat were pairs of every kind of animal—domestic and wild, large and small—along with birds of every kind. 15 Two by two they came into the boat, representing every living thing that breathes. 16 A male and female of each kind entered, just as God had commanded Noah. Then the Lord closed the door behind them.” Genesis 7:13-16 NLT

 

       The Ark of Noah is a typology of the church today. Just as the Ark of Noah was messy and stinky with all the animals manifesting their bowel movements, the church can also get messy and stinky as people manifest their own bowel movements through ungodly behaviors, lack of discipline, injustices, backbiting, etc. However, when the rain of God’s judgment came down, everybody wanted to get in that ark for safety, but by then it was too late, as God Himself closed the door.

 

One hundred years went by between God telling Noah to build the ark and the arrival of the flood, however during that time no one listened. Only Noah’s wife, three sons and their wives made it into that ark together with thousands of animals of all kinds.

The church is in trouble today; I take time on this blog to point out what the Lord tells me to share. However, make no mistake about it, the church will be the only Institution standing in the world. Everything else will be destroyed. For those folks that are out of fellowship, may this word serve as a loving warning that it is time to get in the ark. Oh, and by the way, going to church on Sundays or even becoming a member is not enough… Not even close to enough!
