Two by Two?

Come with me to a place many years ago. Back to a time when the earth was full of people and Sin. Noah was instructed to build a ark that when he was finished would save him and his family. The Ark would also provide salvation for two of every animal (not water living ones).

Are you with me!

In a world much like today God came down and took Noah aside and spoke with him. Build an ark and you will live. His heart must have been full of excitement to know God was talking to him. God told him that the Ark would be full of each kind of animal. I would have been like come on really. No way! But Noah built the ark and probably to his amazement saw animals two by two come onto the ark.

So I have to ask How did he fit all the animals on there? Well the  Ark had about 97,000 square feet of space. According to John Courson that is about five hundred twenty boxcars.  When you do the math the animals fit into 240 of the boxcars and that would leave 280 for Noah and his family.

So that means that God did some cool things with Noah and his family.

Now God did all of this to give Noah and his family new life. That is what we must remember when we look at the Bible. God also sent his Son Jesus to live and to die so that we can have a new life. There was a door on the Ark that allowed Noah and his family to be safe from the storm. In our lives we go up and down in the storms of this life and we too have a door to salvation. All we have to do is call upon the name of the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.

Genesis 6:22 "Thus did Noah(Eric); according to all that God commanded him, so did he." Again I want to end my live and this sentence to be at the end.

What do you want at the end of your life?
