Noah and the Flood 5
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
Noah was a peculiar person in his generation.
Noah was a type of the church.
The ark was a type of Christ’s salvation.
The Flood was a type of the coming final judgment.
1 Peter 2:9 NKJV
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
Noah was different in his generation because he lived a purposeful life.
His vision gave him a focus.
Noah refused to add to the problems of his visionless generation.
He was determined to fulfill his prophecy, and bring relief to mankind from the toil and labour of the cursed ground.
Proverbs 29:18 ESV
“Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law.”
Noah lived among a hedonistic people who lived solely for selfish pleasures. Even angels were taking human form to sample various beautiful women on earth.
The giants born from these unions were physically far stronger than normal men.
This gave birth to violent bullying and a culture of “Survival of the fittest.”
Genesis 6:11 NKJV
“The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.”
Great men dare to be nonconformist. They create their own path, when they find that the majority are on a wrong track.
Everyone in Noah’s world was living in unimaginable immorality.
Everyone was greedily taking whatever they wanted by violence.
Romans 12:2 NKJV
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Noah chose to be nonconformist.
He wanted to do God’s will.
Mockery didn’t move him.
Enticements to violently grab things didn’t move him.
The beautiful women who were moving even angels to change to human form, couldn’t move Noah into immorality.
May you also be unshakable and immovable in your commitment to God.
You are finding divine favour that will lift you into a superior destiny.
May you and your family find salvation, deliverance, healing and blessing, in Jesus’ name.
