Re: Verse reading–Genesis 7:1-4, 17-24; 8:1-5, 13-16, 20-22 (day four)
Why do so many seek to discount the message of Genesis? Why do they question the account of creation? Why do they try to limit the scope and impact of the flood? It is a tactical attack! In order to destroy a complete system of belief, the focus must be on the elimination of the foundation of the structure. If the foundation crumbles, everything above it collapses.
It was Satan’s original attack in the garden. He cast doubt on the truth of what God said. “Has God said,…you will not surely die.” His attacks are the very same today. If we question the truth of God’s Word, then how can we believe anything that God says? With no authority over us, we can then decide for ourselves what is truth. How can we trust Him for our salvation? Do we even need salvation?
In Genesis 7, the world came to that conclusion…they could do what they want. It did not work in Noah’s time…it sure won’t work today either!
