Last Days #4: Get in the Ark: Lessons from Noah – Key Points
There are a lot of events happening in our world today that are setting us up for the end times. In Matt. 24:37-38 and Luke 17:26-29 we see that the days of Noah and the days of Lot were times of partying, violence, and sexual promiscuity. On one hand, things were flourishing as people were building and multiplying (Gen. 6:1-3). However, in Gen. 6:2, “the sons of God saw the daughters of men,” so the godly people mixed and married with ungodly people. When you see those who are saved marry and buddy with the world and accept it, it is the start of a downward sinful cycle! They were willing to let go of God and let go of having his name, because they had a love for themselves and magnified themselves rather than God (2 Tim. 3:1-2,4).
In the days of Noah, there were people who were focused on making a name for themselves. When the godly blend with the world and make a name for themselves, iniquity, wickedness, and evil grow in the land. The imaginations of the thoughts of their hearts were only evil continually (Gen. 6:5). The Hebrew word for evil comes from the word ra’ which speaks of a man going after what he sees! In the days of Noah, it was not just what they could physically see that was drawing them, but it was the imagination of the thoughts of their heart that were evil continually. In the days of Noah there was a lot of corruption and sexual immorality. Gen. 6:12-13 mentions that “…for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.” All flesh included the birds, the beasts, and everything that crawled (v. 19).
Why did God destroy the earth? Not just because of their sexual immorality, marrying and giving in marriage but the earth got so out of control that all flesh corrupted itself and all flesh got destroyed because all flesh was doing wrong! One of the things the Word of God says is the reason He’s had enough is because “the earth is filled with violence through them” (Gen. 6:13). We have to make sure that we are not mixing with the ungodly and allowing our imaginations to rule us! We must not become corrupt and destroy ourselves because of the corruption of this world, but we have to focus on our relationship with God!
No matter what is going in the world right now, Noah shows us we can be righteous in an ungodly world and saved through godliness! Noah represented a covering for the people and he also found grace in the eyes of the Lord! The word Ark is the Hebrew word Tebah which is God’s picture of a man standing in a house (Beth ב) with a cross on it (Tau ת), beholding with his hands lifted up (Hey ה), which represents the church! It’s doesn’t matter how much violence and sexual immorality is going on outside of the ark of safety (in the world) today, there is a place inside the ark of safety for those who believe the Word that is preached and answer the call! The world already looks exactly like it did in the days of Noah but we have an opportunity to get in the ark, and be saved!
