The Days of Noah

Matthew 24:37. “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away: so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

Noah faithfully built and preached for a very long time before God turned loose the faucets of the sky and the earth. Rain?  What was rain?   Flood?  Really?

“Riiiiiight, Noah.  You preach it, fella.  We’re just going to keep on partying and having a good time, and you go ahead with your weird little sons and their weird little wives. You gather up all the livestock and you just toddle right on into your funny-looking tub.

“What’s that?  If we repent and enter the ark with you, we’ll be saved?  Hey, guys!  The END OF THE WORLD is coming.  Y’all want to be SAVED, just repent of your ‘sin’ and climb into the ark with Noah and his nerdy little family. HA!  Hahahahahah!  What a joke!”

They were given plenty, more then plenty, of warning.  They were told exactly what was about to happen, but they weren’t listening.  They weren’t concerned.  They were having a great time, and they didn’t figure they were doing a single thing wrong. After all, they had good hearts, right?  They meant well. And God would understand.  He was supposed to be merciful, right?  So how could a merciful God allow a “flood” to destroy the whole earth?  Come on!  Let the doom-sayers go live in their ark with all the smelly animals. I’m staying here.

      1. I also do not know. usually copy righted images have water mark on it. You can use http://www.gettyimages.com I could solve the problem of embedding. you can see the method here http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/getty-images/. But this method of copy/paste didn’t work for me. Then I right clicked the image and selected copy image url. In post add media, insert from url, paste the url in the box and insert in post. That way worked. First search the image in http://www.gettyimages.com, then find an icon like is there, click on it. If this icon not found, then that image is not allowed to embed.

      2. Thanks. I sometimes have tried to use a picture but after a few minutes it disappears. I suspect that’s because of a copyright issue. I’ve never tried gettyimages, will take a look to see what’s there.
