Article: Did God Once Flood The Entire Earth?

June 10, 2019

The water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere under the heavens were covered. Gen. 7:19
If you believe in the Biblical doctrine of divine inspiration, that God inspired every word in the Bible, you WILL find yourself having to defend it. It just comes with the territory.
Most non-Christians, and even a lot of Christians, have been taught and accept the evolutionary model which takes God and the six days of creation out of the picture. The conclusion is that the Biblical account of creation is just a myth, a fable.
Professing to be wise, they became fools, Rom. 1:22
But if Genesis 1 isn’t 100% true as written, it casts doubt on the rest of God’s Word. If there is one error anywhere in the Bible, the whole thing is suspect.
Genesis 1 is the foundation of the Bible—it tells us where we came from and to whom we’re accountable. And if the foundation is destroyed, the entire building will fall.
Thankfully, if you know the facts, you can scientifically defend the Scriptures and the Lord Who inspired them. You can learn to boldly defend Genesis 1 to Revelation 22.
Take the Biblical account of the worldwide flood of Noah 4500 years ago.
[God] did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly 2Pet. 2:5
The account in Genesis 1 is literally scoffed at by most the world. It’s mainly scoffed at because to accept the account as accurate means the Bible is true, we have accountability to God, there is a judgment, etc. They can’t go there. So instead they scoff while using the magic ingredient of “time” to allow a way for rocks to change into humans.
Denying the worldwide flood account in the last days was prophesied some 2000 years ago. Peter said the time will come when ungodly men would mock the Bible and dismiss the truth of a global flood of judgment about 4500 years ago.

Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation. For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 2Pet. 3:3-7

Even a lot of Christians are duped about not believing the Biblical flood account because they’ve not been taught correctly. Yet Jesus Himself testified about Noah and the worldwide flood.
. . . Noah entered the ark, and the flood came
and destroyed them all. Luke 17:27
So as a Believer, it’s imperative to be able to defend what we Believe to a lost world. For some scientific evidences that defend the Biblical account, go to compass.org and read our free article A Flood Of Evidence.
