  • According to the Bible, the world was full of sin and that was God's way of cleansing it.

  • Noah and his family were the only people saved because they were the only ones still be obedient to God, in those times. Remember too that God dealt directly with man in those days. Ever since Adam and Eve sinned and were removed from the garden, this earth and all its inhabitants and animals and plants etc. became temporary. For whatever his reasons, not that He owes us any, it is His plan to bring those whose are His home with Him for eternity and to condemn those who are not His. God tells us that he is " the Alpha and the Omega", the beginning and the end. Our human wisdom is but a mere fraction of God's and our ways are not always His ways.

  • Ok... When God destroyed the earth the first time it was a world wide flood. He said that he will never destroy the earth again by water but by fire. Why would he want to do this? SIN. If you read about the flood and how people were acting on the earth.... it was nothing but sin .... it was disgusting, immoral and just ugh! God saved one family who was righteous and they would reproduce . When God destroys the earth .. fire is a good thing, it kills every thing on the earth like a forest fire does and it enables the earth to be restored, refreshed. Again He will do this to rid the earth of sin and to bring about His Kingdom on the earth.

  • That link Armageddon a Happy Place has a lot of errors in it. I encourage you to read end times on Mike Bickle's page instead. This man did over 20 yrs of indepth studies on the book of Daniel , Revelation and many other books as well as listing to the voice of Holy Spirit in regards to the end of time.
