Once before the human race passed its probation and destruction came upon them – it was the experience of Noah and his family at the time of the flood. After he and his family had entered the ark, “The Lord shut him in.” Noah did not close the door, his sons did not close it, it was not blown shut by the wind; God closed it. God, and God alone, knows when the last man hears the call of grace. He, and He alone, knows when a human soul rejects forever the offer of salvation. That is why God, and not man, closed the door of the ark. But when He closed it, the probation of the people in Noah’s day was ended. And Jesus says: “As the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Just as certainly as the ark was a place of safety, and the only place of safety, for those people in the time of Noah, so God has provided an ark of safety for His children in the last days of this earth’s history.

God closed the door of the ark when all those who willingly had entered. There were plenty of signs of the coming Flood – first, the preaching of Noah for over a hundred years; then the building of the ark; and at last the animals’ going in two by two. Then God closed the door. Those who were within were safe from the Flood which destroyed the earth. The door of the ark was closed seven days before the rain came, and no doubt many laughed at the foolishness of Noah and said that he had locked himself in there. But God not only shut Noah and his family in to safety and salvation from the Flood, but it shut the others out to their destruction.

Family, if we are shut out of God’s ark of safety we have only ourselves to blame. The door is open now, but it will not always be. The signs of the times are telling us that Jesus’ return is near. One of these days God will say: “It is enough. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still.” We will be sealed for eternity . . .
Now is the time: today is the day for us to make a decision.
