And as it came to pass in the days of Noah, even so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
My friends the Bible says that in the last days the times of Noah shall manifest once again. Yes we know that as per Genesis 6:5 man was sinning in actions and thoughts continuously but Noah is especially mentioned as a different personality amidst a wicked generation. Why did Lord JESUS CHRIST mention the name of Noah? For every scripture there is a reason. There was something special in Noah which very few had in the Bible.
Then Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him entered the ark because of the water of the flood. Of clean animals and animals that are not clean and birds and everything that creeps on the ground, there went into the ark to Noah by twos, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.
We know in Genesis 6 the Bible says
“Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and shall cover it inside and out with pitch. “This is how you shall make it: the length of the ark three hundred cubits, its breadth fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. “You shall make a window for the ark, and finish it to a cubit from the top; and set the door of the ark in the side of it; you shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. “Behold, I, even I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is on the earth shall perish. “But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall enter the ark–you and your sons and your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. “And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. “Of the birds after their kind, and of the animals after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive…”
My friends Noah was honored by God and found grace in the eyes of God. (Genesis 6:8). The grace on Noah was not ordinary, he had the privilege that just because of him, his whole household got saved. Before the great floods swept across the whole planet, we notice that only the qualities of Noah are mentioned in the Bible but none of his family members qualities are mentioned. Noah had the amazing anointing to save his whole household irrespective of their spiritual stature in God. The only quality that was in the family members that they never opposed, questioned or challenged Noah about the authenticity regarding the command of God given to him to build an ark.
Luke 9:50 says
And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
Yes the whole family agreed to the request of Noah the man of God.
My dear friends in the last days we will witness such people rising up in our midst who will carry the mantle of Noah upon their lives to deliver their whole household in the times of trouble. All those people who are praying for their household salvation, when they receive this kind of anointing, it will enable the grace of God to descend on the whole family to be saved.
But there is a word of caution in the Bible.
Ezekiel 14:13,14 says
“Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famine on it, and cut off man and beast from it. Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness,” says the Lord God.
However there is a condition as per the above scripture- if anyone continues to sin against the Lord by being unfaithful then even if Prophet of God like Noah, Daniel and Job were present, only these men of God will be saved by their righteousness.
Hebrews 10:26 says
“For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins…”
My friends it is important that we play our part. Noah’s family were in one accord with Noah. Therefore they came under the umbrella of grace that was on Noah.
This mantle is about to come upon this generation in these last days. So get ready my friends.
