In the last days, the Bible says, the fact that God once flooded the earth (Genesis 6) would be denied (2 Peter 3: 5-6). There is a mass of fossil evidence to prove this fact, yet it is flatly ignored by most of the scientific world. The fact that the scientific world discounts the Biblical account of the flood is not surprising, it is exactly what the Bible says would happen in the last days. Listen to the words of the Apostle Peter, written 2000 years ago:
vs 5: “But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water.”
vs 6: “By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.”
Why would people ignore such clear truth? The answer is found in Revelation 12: 9–
“Satan, who deceives the whole world.” The closer we get to the Lord’s return, the more we see people ignoring the truth of the Bible, and believing theories make no sense at all. And we see this happening more and more each day, just as the Bible said it would. Not a sermon, just a thought.
Take advantage of our regular mid-week ministries that happen here at Lakeside, Youth, AWANA, Women’s and Men’s Bible studies, and take some time to pray for those who lead these ministries. I don’t know what we would do without these faithful people.
Paul said, “Encourage one another, especially as you see the day approaching.” I want to encourage you to check out the flowers in the front of the church and up by the sign. They are beautiful, and we give a big Lakeside salute to all who helped plant them. It seems that Spring is in the air here at Lakeside Church. I can’t wait to see you Sunday.
