Hidden in Christ

Noah was sent to save the faithful. Christ was sent to do the same.
A flood of water came then. A flood of fire will come next.
Noah built a safe place out of wood. Jesus made a safe place with the cross.
Those who believed hid in the ark. Those who believe are hidden in Christ.

[Max Lucado]

And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. Genesis 7:1

Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. Isaiah 26:20

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matthew 24:37

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 ♥
