Did Noah build an ark?
There are some in the media questioning if Noah really built the ark. There is a bigger question: how powerful is your God?
The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the LORD said, “I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth-men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air-for I am grieved that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.
Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways.
I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. Genesis 6:5-8, 9-12, 17
So did Noah build an ark? The more important question is why did Noah build an ark. It is about God. It is not about Noah. It is about a God who hates wickedness.
Answer the following questions about your perspective towards God. Your answers will either open up God’s Word to you or close HIS revelation to you.
The question is not if Noah built an ark. The question is did God create the Heavens and Earth? Did God send a flood to destroy all life under the heavens? If God is the creator of heaven and earth does HE have the power and might to flood the earth?
The questions reveal your perspective towards God. Did God free the Israelites from slavery in Egypt? Did God send a Passover lamb to save the first-born Jewish males in Egypt? Does God have the power and might to inflict plagues on the Egyptians and spare the Israelites? Does God have the power and might to open up the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross over to safety and kill the Egyptians? Does God have the power and might to send manna to the Israelites in the desert?
Did God send HIS only son Jesus as a sacrifice for all of man’s sin? Does Jesus Christ have the power to forgive man’s sin? When you see and witness people who have been transformed and healed from the sin addiction of alcohol, cocaine, homosexuality, adultery, worry, pride, arrogance and greed, can you believe Jesus Christ healed them and has forgiven them of their sin? Can God forgive you of your sin?
How you deal with these questions will impact your life now. How powerful is your god or GOD?
