Here is an interesting scripture,
Remember Lot’s wife. Luke 17:32
Jesus spoke those words and it adds validity to the story in Genesis where Lot, his wife, and daughters were fleeing from the judgment of God on Sodom and Gomorrah.
But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. Gen 19:26
I know that sounds impossible but even Jesus did not dispute it.
Jesus did not dispute the Jonah story. In fact He said,
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matt 12:40
The fact is the wild and fantastic unbelievable stories of the Old Testament are very believable in and of themselves; but more so because the Savior believed them.
To me this makes all of the New Testament believable and to be expected.
1 Thess 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
While that sounds utterly fantastic and many doubt that it will occur, if the Bible speaks the truth about the past then it speaks the truth about the future.
Abba, I believe the word. Guide me to live according to what I believe. In Jesus name, YES&AMEN!
