Who said God isn't current with electronic technological messaging?
Once upon a time, God gave Noah a very complex mathematical equation to solve. He sent him an electronic message to let Him know three important things: 1) That He was (and is) a great mathematician, 2) That He was (and is still) a great Architect (playing into His mathematical abilities), 3) And that a flood was coming that was going to wipe out the whole earth.
Check out the message (Gen 6:13-17): “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch. And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be 300 cubits, its width 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits. You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to 1 cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, 2nd, and 3rd decks. And behold, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth..."
Keep in mind that there were no electronic computers in Noah's time. Neither were there any electronic calculators. The only gadget he had to build this huge structure was his "brain." Then you can imagine the people of Noah's time. Their ears were so clogged up that they couldn't hear what he was saying. Their hearts were filled with so much filth that they couldn't abandon all their evil projects and repent with their faces turned up towards the heavens. They kept doing all they knew how to do...eat, drink, celebrate marriages...
But Jesus came to simplify this electronic mathematical equation. In our time, the equation has really become simple, although the activities of today's society has become much more complex. Those evil projects which were in Noah's time have been amplified by today's technology. Now we do not need to gather in a bandwagon to perform evil activities, the internet is right there...you can have an orgy online, right? It's so funny how the equation God sent became simplified, but yet the evil activities became amplified.
The equation became simplified when Jesus said these words "IT IS FINISHED!" He died on the cross to make the equation simple. Now we need no ark, neither do we need sacrifices...we just need to believe in His blood.
In Matt 24:36-44 He also said, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect."
The major statement here is, "watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming..."
While Dot.com industries are exploding,
and internet billionaires are unfolding,
While cell phones are expanding,
and palm pilots are booming,
we need to keep watch,
because we do not know what hour He's coming.
While high school children are shooting,
and street gangs are enlarging their territories,
while drug use is becoming a pastime,
and bed time stories are fading,
we need to keep watch,
because we do not know what hour He's returning.
While marriages are booming,
and yet divorce rates are increasing,
While some pastors are raping children,
and some are yet scamming their members,
yes, we need to keep watch,
because we know not when He's coming again...
Make the complex electronic message simple,
and start your watch tonight...
