IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
Main text: Gen 6:7-8 “And the Lord said. I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man, and beast, and creeping things and the fowls of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made man. But Noah found Grace in the eyes of the Lord”
“But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the Ark, thou and thy sons, and thy wife and sons wives with thee”.
The second generation of the world started with Noah. The first water that covered the earth was due to the sin of Lucifer, and that was the first generation of creation. In the second generation, which was in the days of Noah, God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was evil continually, and it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at heart (Genesis 6:5-6).
God saw the Ego, pride in man that is the body of flesh. Man became a free human agent, doing whatever he likes, living in the flesh and abandoning the faithfulness, Righteousness and Holiness of God. The earth became corrupt, filled with violence. “And God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth (Gen. 6:12). God gave Noah the fashion and pattern to make the Ark, and Noah dedicated and devoted his time and attention to the construction of an Ark for the Lord without any mistake. God told Noah to enter the Ark. “And Lord said unto Noah, “come thou and all thy house into the Ark, for thee have I seen righteousness before me in this generation” (Genesis 7:1).
Noah and his family were righteous that they were the only family that was saved from the flood. Can you be like this wonderful family that God would boast of and trust?
LIVE A LIFE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS LIKE NOAH AND HIS FAMILY.
