Why would Noah build an ark for 75 years at the most? If there were a local flood then he didn’t have to build an ark. He could travel to another place where there was not a flood.
Why would God have to bring two of e…very land-breathing creature to the Ark? If there was a local flood they would be safe where they were located.
The answers to the above questions have no logical sense when we try to interpret the Genesis Flood as a local flood like many has said.
8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him: 9 “I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you 10 and with every living creature that was with you—the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you—every living creature on earth. 11 I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.”
16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”
If we interpret the Genesis Flood to be a local flood, then God’s everlasting covenant is meaningless because we have many devastating local floods throughout the world and they do not wipe out all the animals. The only interpretation that is consistent with God’s everlasting covenant is that it was a worldwide Flood. Since the fossil records have proven that it was worldwide. What then is my point! I am pointing to the fact that the flood was real.
The Genesis Flood was a judgment on the world’s sin. Sin will always bring death. Jesus talked about the Flood. This world mocks God. This world system loves to sin. God hates sin and must punish sin.
People love the baby Jesus but I have to tell you something. He will bring judgment on this world. If a person refuses to repent and follow Jesus then the person will face the wrath of God.
The world will be surprised when the wrath of God is upon this world.
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
