Morning Message of Motivation
Noah and the Flood 4
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
There was great expectation on Noah’s life because of his prophecy. Noah was expected to provide the needed relief from their daily struggles because of the cursed ground.
Genesis 5:29 NKJV
“And he called his name Noah, saying, “This one will comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord has cursed.”
Satan released his counterattack on two fronts.
Every prophecy is opposed by Satan.
First, Satan wanted to pollute the human race, through intermarriages of women and the “sons of God,” until there would be no more purely human beings on earth.
Secondly, Satan was introducing great violence, lawlessness and murder through the giants.
Genesis 6:4 NKJV
“There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.”
Noah grew up in this time of great evil. Lawlessness and violence ruled everywhere.
Genesis 6:11 NKJV
“The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.”
Noah’s prophecy preserved him from the evil.
Everyone with a prophecy must live for God and not for selfish pleasures.
Isaiah 59:19b NKJV
“When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.”
Noah’s life of righteousness was God’s opportunity to give the human race a new start.
Genesis 7:1 NKJV
“Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation.”
Noah was a man with a prophecy, and he was filled with purpose and vision. He didn’t pollute himself with the violence and rampant immorality of his generation.
He chose to shun sin and evil, and live for God. God also chose to preserve and honour him.
May Almighty God cover and preserve you from all evil.
May you stand out in your generation.
May you be selected for special favour and grace, in Jesus’ name.
