|Noah Warning the People|
A local official, John Pennington said, “This entire year we have pushed message after message that there’s a high risk of landslides. The dangers and the risks are known.” According to Pennington it was a “high risk”.
Then why didn’t people act? Why didn’t people listen? Why did people continue to build homes in the very area that was declared a possible disaster area?
As Jesus gave earthly illustrations (parabolic) to press home spiritual points, I am acutely aware that this particular incident can serve as a warning to all of us.
Over and over Jesus gave us warnings about His return. The prophets of old gave warnings of impending judgment. And like the residents of Oso, WA those warnings were ignored, laughed at, and even thought impossible.
Ah yes, there’s the rub, we are today living in the times; “as it was in the days of Noah.” Are you prepared to enter the “Ark” that Jesus has provided?
