What are our priorities?

Genesis 7:21-23 – “And all ?esh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.”

II Peter 3:6, 7, 11-13 – “Whereby the world that then was, being over?owed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto free against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on free shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness.”

The sentence of judgment upon the earth has already been passed and is simply awaiting execution. Only those residing in the ark (now Jesus, of which the first ark was a picture) shall survive the calamity.

I John 2:15-17 – “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the ?esh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is
not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God
abideth forever.”

Our ambitions outside of the will of the Father are simply sand castles built on the beach at low tide.

I Corinthians 3:11-13 – “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble, every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by free; and the free shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.”

May we as readers beware!
