From February 01, 2014 through December 31 we will take a journey through the Bible, and looking at pictures of Jesus and the very fulfillment of Jesus when we get to the New Testament.

It is awesome the way God has preserved, and inspired His Word to proclaim His Son and His glorious salvation. Looking at the verse above we see the means of Noah’s, his family’s and many other creature’s salvation from the devastating flood.
In this historical account of the worldwide flood of Noah’s day we have a wonderful picture of Christ Jesus in the ark, and of God’s marvelous grace. That invitation is still valid, and powerful today when we look at Jesus as the only source of hope and salvation for mankind. He says “Come unto Me…, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
