Living In The Time of Noah
November 22, 2021
The story of Noah has more meaning today than any other time. Why? Because we are living in the times of Noah, just like Jesus predicted prior to His return.
“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” (Matthew 24:37)
Regarding that time there is a powerful emphasis about the safety of the Ark. How Noah followed God’s instruction to build a large vessel regardless of how he felt, or what others might think to judge him.
During that time of chaos in the world Noah remained focused to the task God assigned to him, and as Noah worked, many were drawn to witness what He was doing to watch or ridicule. Each day Noah and his sons worked as God increased his audience. Noah would speak to the crowds of the impending storm; to warn them to turn back to God. For in the end it won’t be the strength around the vessel that would keep Noah safe, but the Spirit of God from “within.”
Gen 7:16 says .." The animals going in were male and female of every living thing as God had commanded Noah.. then God SHUT HIM IN.
Noah had built the Ark, he remained focused on his job in which he could have never completed had God not been with him. Then when the time came for God’s judgement upon the world and those who rejected Him - it would be God Himself who had shut Noah inside the Ark in order to seal out the waters of the flood.
"The Lord sealed them inside”
Christians today - are you focused on the task the Lord has given you for this time? And as you work are you warning others of the impending storm that’s fast approaching?
For spiritual wisdom isn’t about the fact that you have locked your house that keeps you safe at night, nor your good driving skills that keeps you safe on the road. For its God that keeps you safe, and the only one who can shut out the devil that is devouring lives today.
“Father we pray that your children follow the example of Noah, to focus on what you have given each one of us to do during this time in the state of unrest in the world. That as we work to know that you work with us to accomplish (by your strength) the things we could never do alone. “
“Lord Jesus, we pray for our children and our grandchildren to cover them to protect them from the dangers and forced injections that are destroying countless lives around the world right now. That you shut them in, Lord, and to keep out the flood waters of: abuse, rape, murder, accidents, diseases and untimely death. For you are the one and THE ONLY Living God who can save and protect your people. “
“Shut us in Lord, within your Ark of protection , and as we work may we have your compassion to reach the lost and the rebellious, to warn them to turn their lives around before it’s to late.”
And as your children focus on the work you have given us may we experience your love and the peace knowing that your inside directing us and guiding us until the time comes when you remove us from this world.
For it’s only by knowing your Word and Trusting your Word that SHUTS US INSIDE your protection.
For God “set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”
(2 Corinthians 1:22)
