    Some Plainly Revealed Truths

    Now read the passage again, and note the following points:EVCO 40.4

    1. Those who scoff at the promise of the coming of the Lord are willingly ignorant of some of the plainest and most important events recorded in the Bible, namely the creation and the flood. They say that “all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” But they were not there, while God, who was there, says that things have changed much since creation.EVCO 40.5

    2. The word of the Lord created the heavens and the earth in the beginning. “By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.” 2Psalm 33:6. “And God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good.” 3Genesis 1:31.EVCO 40.6

    3. After a few hundred years, however, “God looked upon the earth and behold it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.” 4Genesis 6:12.EVCO 40.7

    Then by the same word by which the earth was made it was covered with water, the water with which it was stored being made to contribute to its destruction. By the flood the earth “perished;” the earth in its present condition bears scarcely any resemblance to that which existed before the flood.EVCO 40.8

    4. By the same word by which the earth was created and destroyed, the earth which is now is kept until the time of perdition of ungodly men, when it will be overwhelmed by a lake of fire instead of a flood of water.EVCO 42.1

    5. “Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.” The same word accomplishes it all.EVCO 42.2
