I suppose an analogy is liking cleaning/renovating a room or building. If a room or building is sort of filled with dirt or completely ruined with walls, floors and furniture that is beyond repair then we could think of God's Flood recounted in Genesis 6-9 as being a complete "total deep cleaning"(for lack of a better phrase) / complete renovation of entire said room or building.
Even though God tells Noah in Genesis 9:11 that He will Never flood the world again in order to destory it, we can still continue elaborate on the analogy
Genesis 9:11 New American Standard Bible 1995
11 I establish My covenant with you; and all flesh shall never again
be cut off by the water of the flood, neither shall there again be a
flood to destroy the earth.”
Now let's elaborate on said analogy by saying that as time goes by, said room or building becomes dirty or has need of new renovation due to damage which can be compared to the account of ( Genesis 19:1-14 ) Sodom and Gomorrah's sin which chronologically happens after God's Flood recounted in Genesis 6-9.
Genesis 19:1-14 New American Standard Bible 1995
19 Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening as Lot was sitting
in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them and
[a]bowed down with his face to the ground. 2 And he said, “Now behold,
my lords, please turn aside into your servant’s house, and spend the
night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your
way.” They said however, “No, but we shall spend the night in the
square.” 3 Yet he urged them strongly, so they turned aside to him and
entered his house; and he prepared a feast for them, and baked
unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 Before they lay down, the men of the
city, the men of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old, all
the people [b]from every quarter; 5 and they called to Lot and said
to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to
us that we may [c]have relations with them.”
.....more....scripture... 12 Then the two men said to Lot, “Whom else have you here? A son-in-law, and your sons, and your daughters,
and whomever you have in the city, bring them out of the place; 13 for
we are about to destroy this place, because their outcry has become so
great before the Lord that the Lord has sent us to destroy it.” 14 Lot
went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who [l]were to marry his
daughters, and said, “Up, get out of this place, for the Lord will
destroy the city.” But he appeared to his sons-in-law [m]to be
God's Flood recounted in Genesis 6-9 ----analogical comparison--> "total deep cleaning" / complete renovation of entire said room or building
God's destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah Genesis 19:1-14 ----analogical comparison--> minor scrubbing of dirt / or doing some renovation of an isolated area in a room or building
Therefore, some of the major themes are:
-Sin is way too evil, wicked and horrendous that destruction of the world can Not be enough to end and/or pay for sin itself, and therefore, sin can Only be destroyed by form of payment which is referenced in the following verses:
John 3:16 New American Standard Bible 1995
16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His [a]only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
1 John 2:2 New American Standard Bible 1995
2 and He Himself is the [a]propitiation for our sins; and not for ours
only, but also for those of the whole world.
-LOL, To all the climate change/global warming activists / protesters in the world, I suppose that both God's Flood recounted in Genesis 6-9 and God's destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah in Genesis 19:1-14 are examples of how God uses natural disasters in order to make some sort of short-term redress / correcting of some sin in this world.
