+ Transformation Followed Tragedy

> In the pages of the Bible, human tragedy is almost always followed by miraculous transformation. Consider the story of the world-wide flood. When everything on the planet and everyone on it were destroyed by a flood, God brought about a new existence for mankind through Noah and his family. He wiped the slate clean through destruction and gave mankind a fresh start. Every rainbow is a reminder of this. This may be the biggest example, but there are countless more in the Bible...

> Through the ten plagues in Egypt God delivered his people from slavery

> Through the destruction of Jericho came the birth of a new nation in a promised land

> Through the death of Christ came the salvation of all mankind

> Through the horrific judgments in Revelation will come the Eternal Kingdom

+ Good Out of Trouble
