Pamphlet #6241 Genesis KC 16-1

Noah was preaching against getting involved with the sons of God, the fallen angels!

Let's pause for a moment of reflection and try to imagine what it was like for Noah,
whose name means "rest".

Our Father has given him the plans and told him to go out and build this humongous boat in the backyard,
which is not exactly a weekend project, so there won't be any "rest" for awhile, anyway.

Now we know from 2 Peter 2:5 that Noah was a preacher of righteousness,
and by putting two and two together
(that's a figure of speech and has nothing to do with how the animals were assembled for the ark)
we know what he was preaching and warning about.

Noah was preaching against getting involved with the sons of God, the fallen angels!

Keep away from them!

Keep away from Satan and his own!

But ultimately only he and his family would remain pure and uncorrupted by these supernatural charmers.

So not only wasn't anyone heeding Noah's warnings,
but you can be sure they had him labeled as a "far right wing religious extremist".

And now he starts to build this floating stadium to house the broncos, the cardinals, the bulls and the eagles
and adds the flash flood warning to his sermons.

I'm sure this went over really big and as a result brought forth the best scoffers of the day!

The point is that Noah and his family stood alone in the land
against tremendous pressure and ridicule
and yet were willing to take a stand against the "fiery darts",
against this same locust army that we will face in this generation,
the final generation, the generation of the fig tree, yes, the "Baby Boomer" generation.

Twice for emphasis, once in Gen. 6:22 and again in Gen 7:5, our Father had Moses record,
"And Noah did all that the Lord commanded him".

What an example he was for us.

What a tremendous servant of God!

I can't wait to meet him someday!

Next we'll go to chapter seven of Genesis, which flows rather smoothly.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
