Download To destroy all flesh

Scoffers point to verses such as this one to declare God’s vengeful anger and rage.

They would seek to impugn God’s character, by painting Him as something other than merciful. But they are blasphemous and dead wrong.

One of the principles established in these early books of the Bible is that God only takes righteous action.

Simply put: if God does it, it is right.

It is not for man to judge the timing or the extent of His mercy.

With that being said, let us also establish that He acts in judgment only when His overflow of mercy has been scorned.

His consistent lovingkindness, abundant mercifulness, and everlasting grace are without parallel.

Let us not forget who He is when we see the drama of His Old Testament acts.

Genesis 6:17 “And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.”
