“It was by faith that Noah built a large boat to save his family from the flood. He obeyed God, who warned him about things that had never happened before. By his faith Noah condemned the rest of the world, and he received the righteousness that comes by faith.” Hebrews 11:7 (NLT)
Noah is still preaching to us today! He was warned by God to prepare for something not there yet, for something that had never happened before. And as he did, his actions spoke loudly to the wicked culture around him. His obedience “condemned” the rest of the world! Noah operated by faith, not by fear. His faith caused him to act differently than everyone else. Likewise, God is calling us to be different, and the world will take it about as well as it did for Noah!
Earlier this year I had the opportunity to see the Ark Encounter in Kentucky. It is a life-sized rendition of what the Ark could have looked like! It totally stood out, like a mountain against a valley. Just as the Ark stood out, so should the church stand out. And though it wasn’t popular, God was pleased with it and used it to bring salvation during a global flood. Yes, the flood waters covered the whole earth, every mountain as God brought a global reset. It was a global salvation. And today, a divine global reset, a flood of His glory is coming.
Ask God for a faith that crushes fear, for a faith that those around you take note of, for a faith that causes you to act differently from the world! Pray that your pastor would preach Bible centered, sin convicting sermons. Pray that your church would stand out in this dark culture, like the Ark did against the land around it. Thank the Lord for His salvation and the divine global reset that is coming!!!
