Roy’s Blog: “What Comes Next?”

Hosea 6:3b “He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth.”

Do you want to know what comes next? Do you want to understand what God will do in the future? Look at what God has done in the past. God doesn’t leave us in the dark, in ignorance. He has a plan and it’s laid out in His Word, beginning to end.

When God decided to flood the entire earth because man’s sin was so prevalent, He gave instructions to Noah. He gave Noah 120 years to build the ark, but He also gave Noah the words to tell others what was going to come. For 120 years Noah exhorted everyone to repent before it was too late, that judgement was coming. They could see the ark, a marvel in itself, being built. But, they only laughed at him and called him crazy. It had never rained before so why should they worry. They didn’t repent. So what came next? Judgement. They perished. When the rains came and the waters began to rise, they stormed the ark, but the door had closed.

The Bible says that’s the way it will be at the time of the end. “Just like in the days of Noah…they will be drinking, marrying and giving in marriage until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Matthew 24:38
