As In the Days of Noah…
As in the days of Noah, there was wickedness in the land!.
So shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man!
There were many forms of ungodliness that were enjoyed!
Until the day of the flood...
Then it was all destroyed!
Imagine building an ark that took one hundred
and twenty years!
The labor it took! Throughout the blood,
sweat and tears!
The people laughed, and thought Noah
was “out of his mind.”
But soon, the wrath of God,
is what they would find!
God gave them a chance to repent, but no one would.
So he had Noah and his family made an ark out of wood.
Noah warned them all, consequences there would be!
And warned them of where
they’d be spending eternity!
Then, the rains came and poured like never before!
The people got scared!
They couldn’t take anymore!
They cried and shouted, “Noah” “please let us in!”
“We didn’t believe you, when you told us of our sin!”
The door on the ark was shut! God’s judgment came down!
Other than Noah’s family, there was no one else around!
America’s days of wickedness will be coming to an end!
Very soon, God’s judgment will certainly begin!
Will you mock the men of God? Who preach God’s word?
Or will you live as if, his truth, you never heard?
As in the days of Noah, so shall it be at Christ’ return!
Will you join him in heaven?
Or stay on this earth to burn?
