And the Waters Receded (The Antitype) (Hand Out)

The Antitypical Ark of Safety:
1 • What are some of the dangers of our day that relate to the days of Noah?
2 • What can we do to resist the strong current of evil and keep safe from these evil influences? (Luke 21:36)
3 • Considering that we live in the days of the Son of Man, what are our responsibilities as New Creatures to ourselves, our brethren and the world?
4 • How can we take advantage of the increase of knowledge to prepare our hearts and the hearts of others?
5 • Since being "in Christ" is our "ark of safety," what can we do to control our fears of losing temporal security in the coming flood? (Pensions, investments, health care, Social Security, Medicare, insurance, etc.)
6 • What evidence is there of the flood of truth in relationship to the destruction of the old order (examples: BP Oil spill accountability, the green movement, Habitat for Humanity, Wikileaks, etc.)
