The ark

I just want to praise God for the ark.  I want to praise God for the ark that He used to save Noah, I want to praise God for the ark that He used with the Isrealites in the wilderness and I want to thank God for the ark He has used with us.  I believe Jesus is our ark.  You know there are many people out there that think God is out to punish them rather than save them.  There are people out there who see an angry God and not a loving and forgiving God.  But God does not desire to punish, He desires to save us.  There had to be a punishment for sin, because God is righteous.  But instead of pouring our His wrath on us, which He did not want to do, He sent His beloved son Jesus to receive the wrath in our place.  This is how much God did not want to punish us for our sins.  He did not want to pour His wrath out on us, but it had to be poured out, so Jesus took it.  So how can you refuse such an awesome gift of salvation.  We all need and want God, He is our creator and we yearn for Him.  He wired us to need to be in relationship with Him.  He knows that He did, that is why it is so important to Him for us to be reconciled through Jesus Christ.  Some people ask, when will Jesus come back? Why is He waiting so long?  How long is He going to let this evil go on in the world?  While the heart of God gets grieved, lemme tell you why He is letting this evil go on in the world.

2 Peter 3:9
9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,[a] not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

There are people out there that have not accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.  God is being longsuffering towards those individuals, because He doesn't want them to perish.  He is giving them time to repent because He loves them.  Though He will not wait forever, He waits in love right now.  If there is anybody reading this blog who has not accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior, He is waiting on you.  He lets evil go on and His heart gets grieved but He is giving you time to repent and turn to Him for forgiveness.  God is so loving that He waits.  We have an ark and His name is Jesus, get into the ark.  God's #1 intention towards you is to save you.  Get into the ark.
