The Knock That Never Came

    And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood. There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.  And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were upon the earth (Genesis 7:7, 9-10).

   Noah preached about the coming flood for 120 years while he and his sons were building the ark. It is interesting that after Noah and his family were in the ark with all the animals, etc. that they waited 7 days before God closed the door. Even in Godís wrath He waited for seven days, hoping that some of the people would knock on the door of the ark and be saved. That hope for a knock never came because the people just didnít believe God. How sad is that?

   In Matthew chapter 24:37-39, Jesus spoke of the people of Noahís day. They were given every opportunity to be saved, but they just ignored the Lord and went on about their everyday business until the flood swept them away. They frustrated the grace of God and ignored the offer of so great a salvation.

   Jesus warned that as in the days of Noah, before the Lordís return to earth, people will go about their business and many will frustrated the grace of God by not accepting Jesus.

God Bless
