Morning Message of Motivation

Noah and the Flood 8
By Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi

Christ Jesus predicted that the stubborn attitude of the people of Noah’s generation would persist in the days before His Second Coming.
Luke 17:26 NKJV
“And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:”

About 3,000 years after the Flood, our Lord Jesus said nothing had changed.
The attitude of men in Christ’s time was the same as the men of Noah’s day.
Men ignored the coming judgment and chose to continue in their sinful lifestyles.
It’s about 5,000 years since the Flood and men are still the same. However the true church will continue to preach righteousness, and warn this generation to repent and believe in Jesus for salvation.
There are mockers who refuse to believe in the coming judgment.
2 Peter 3:3 NKJV
“Knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts,”

These scoffers claim that all things have remained the same.
2 Peter 3:4 NKJV
And saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

They give the excuse of the continuity of all things.
Jesus preached a message on Noah to warn men.
Luke 17:27 NKJV
“They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.”

Jesus did not refer to the wickedness of men in Noah’s time.
He did not preach about the giants that lived in those days.
Those factors were the reasons for the coming judgment.
Jesus rather explained why men did not believe Noah’s preaching.
Men had become used to everything remaining normal despite their wickedness.
However, God’s long suffering and patience delays His judgment, to give men a chance to repent.

May you be ahead of your generation in understanding and grace.
May you provide an example to your peers, in Jesus’ name.
