Morning Message of Motivation
Noah and the Flood 12
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
God gave Noah’s family and the animals seven days to enter the ark.
Genesis 7:4 NKJV
“For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.”
The Ark was ready.
Men had been warned through Noah’s preaching.
It was now time.
Those who believed God’s word had to enter the Ark.
Jesus told us what those who didn’t believe were doing.
Matthew 24:38 NKJV
“For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark.”
Men were planning for the usual mundane things of life.
Matthew 24:39 NKJV
“And did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”
Noah entering the Ark in dry weather looked foolish, but in seven days the wisdom of the Ark would be revealed.
Genesis 7:10 NKJV
“And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth.”
An unprecedented deluge of water came upon the earth.
Rainwater poured from the skies.
Underground cisterns broke up, and water from beneath the ground poured on the earth.
There were countless billions of gallons of water underground.
Genesis 7:11 NKJV
“In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.”
The Flood made the Ark become attractive and essential.
After the Flood began, people wanted to get into the Ark.
Unfortunately it was too late.
God had shut the door of the Ark.
The Flood lifted the Ark.
Genesis 7:18 NKJV
“The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water.”
May you be lifted and raised.
May God vindicate your faith and obedience, in Jesus’ name.
