The 1949 Bulletin of the Societe Jersiaise contains a full record of the deer antlers fossilised in this beach. Together with those mammalian remnants were a good number and variety of marine mollusc – indicating again a possible catastrophe embracing both land and water based animals. Deer antlers were entombed with marine life and preserved in stone.
Many scientists reject the concept of Noah’s flood as recorded in the Book of Genesis in the Bible. They reject it not because it doesn’t fit with the evidence but because they wish to interpret facts – and draw conclusions - without reference to the God of the Bible – the God of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
What, to many, is highly persuasive, however, is the fact that Jesus Christ referred to Noah as a real person and to the global flood as a real historic event. See bold above.
It’s noteworthy that Jesus did not predict another flood. Almighty God promised Noah (as recorded in the book of Genesis) that that would never be. “I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth….. I have set my [rain] bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”
Instead Jesus drew attention to the fact that his return to earth (after his death on the cross and resurrection and ascension to his Father above) would be as unexpected to people on earth as were the flood waters of Noah’s day….
He urged his hearers to be ready - to be ready because the hour of his return would be totally unexpected - totally unexpected because of eating, drinking, marrying, giving in marriage, working, preparing, planning, and sleeping.
What do you think Jesus wanted these folk – those who heard him – to actually do in order to avoid being caught unawares? What did he want to happen? He asked only that they stay awake – which means to give attention to, to take heed of, to actively watch…what?
