Why Noah found grace in the sight of God?
Noah seemed to be the only one who believed!
Remember, he was laughed and mocked when he tried to warn people of the upcoming catastrophe.
Everyone thought he was crazy.
God found Noah and his family to be the only righteous believers.
God wants a clean vessel
Very good Daniels:jesus-sign::amen:
For the newbies, what makes a clean vessel, or who is a clean vessel... So we can all be like Noah
Obedience to God's word in fullness and Truth!
Noah and his wife were chosen to, in effect, be the new Adam and Eve since all humans are descended from Noah and his wife (her name was not recorded in the Scriptures).
"These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation; Noah walked with God. And Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight, and the earth was filled with violence. And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. And God said to Noah, "I have determined to make an end of all flesh; for the earth is filled with violence through them; behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make yourself an ark of Gopher Wood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and out with Pitch. This is how you are to make it: the length of the ark three hundred cubits [see How Big Was Noah's Ark?], its breadth fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits." (Genesis 6:9-15 RSV)
I would say not exactly because Naoh's son's wives were also brought (Genesis 7:7), so there was other ancestries included. Though, it's interesting that the son's are named, but the wife isn't...
Noah was the only faithful servant that was left. He was a new beginning.
very true clean the inside of your cup.this to myself was a long prosess.nearly a year and half.
Blessed family of Noah
- Genesis 91. Saved People
And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
- Gen 9:1
2. Supernatural Power
And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
- Gen 9:2
3. Sufficient Provision
3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.
6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
- Gen 9:3-7
4. Sincere Promise
8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;
10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.
- Gen 9:8-19
5. Successful Profession
20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
- Gen 9:20-24
6. Sweet Progeny
25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
26 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
- Gen 9:25-27
7. Secured Privilege28 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
29 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died.
- Gen 9:28-29
Noah was indeed a man after God's heart;
2Pe 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
True faith produces a life full of actions, not a head full of facts.
Oo...I like that statement.
...Funny, it suddenly reminded me of a former member here that used to think statements like (Bible-sounding phrases) that were anti-Christian. I nearly forgot all about him/her until now...
Amen brother Daniels!
