But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Jesus Cites Noah’s Dispensational Lesson

Written by

(Read Part 2)

The Lord Jesus Himself provides a startling warning for those living during the eschatological time that replicates the days of Noah and the building of the ark. The common thought is that the gospel narratives only contain the account of the birth and general events in the life of Jesus, such as His death, burial and resurrection....

God’s Sovereignty over the Flood

Written by

God was sovereign over the flood. As Psalm 29:10 states:

The Lord sat as King at the flood;Yes, the Lord sits as King forever.

Not only did the elevation of the oceanic waters result in a great catastrophe upon the physical earth, but  also the breaking of the waters above added to the universal flood. Genesis 1:7 records God creating...

Only Evil Continually

The Lord Jesus believed in Noah and a worldwide flood—and even said that the moral climate at the time of the flood was indicative of the conditions that would exist shortly before His return.

Jesus stated in Matthew 24:37-42:

But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the...

The Extent of the Flood

What was the extent of the flood, and where did the waters of the flood come from? The Gilgamesh Epic and similar flood stories (e.g. Berossus) say that the cause of the flood was a mighty downpour.[1] There is no great stress laid on the “fountains of the deep” as in Genesis.[2] But Scripture reveals not just rainfall but...

The Biblical Prominence of the Flood

All of us need to grasp, first of all, the Biblical teaching about the prominence of the flood.

Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “If you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me.  But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” (John 5:46-47; cf. Luke 24:25-27).

The Enormity and Importance of the Flood

Written by

Researchers have discovered evidence of water beneath the surface of the Earth, as deep as 650 kilometers (404 miles). The vast amount of water beneath your feet is enough to fill oceans. The water, however, is not in liquid form (and is thus unavailable as a reservoir); rather, it is trapped within underground materials. The research is...

The Waters of Creation and the Flood

God and the Waters of CreationIn the very first chapter of the Bible there is an awful lot of water. It does not come from the sky, nor does it run off the mountainous slopes Hermon. The waters (mayim) which are mentioned first in Genesis 1:2 are just there after the initial act of creation. They are there even before any land is present. Water is...

Greetings from the Ark EncounterAnswers in Genesis’ life-size reconstruction of Noah’s ark.

In this first report following a very big day at the Ark, I want to emphasize a few simple points.

Just getting to the Ark proved to be quite a challenge this morning. My wife Lynnette and I thought...

When I think of the great flood of Noah, I usually think immediately of my revered seminary teacher, Dr. John C. Whitcomb, in whose many classes I came to a deep appreciation of the Old Testament Scriptures. He was in the vanguard of a renewed call to Biblical literalism in Bible-science studies, beginning with The Genesis Flood (Presbyterian...
