Morning Message of Motivation
Noah and the Flood 10
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
The time for judgment to begin finally came after a series of events spanning at least 100 years.
1 Peter 4:17 NKJV
“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?”
God always offers mercy before His judgments.
God always sends a preacher with a message that calls people to repentance.
God always presents a plan of salvation and deliverance.
He makes a way of escape.
God always gives a grace period for men to repent.
God always prepares a way for a remnant to escape the judgment.
For example, Lot and his family had to enter a city of refuge, before fire destroyed Sodom.
Genesis 19:22 NKJV
“Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there.”
Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.”
There was a 100 year period of grace from Noah’s 500th year to his 600th year.
Judgment came immediately after this period of grace ended.
God gave Noah and his family, seven days to board the Ark.
Genesis 7:4 NIV
“Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”
Noah and his sons went into the Ark.
Genesis 7:7 NIV
“And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him went into the ark to escape the waters of the flood.”
The Flood came right on time as God predicted.
Genesis 7:10 NIV
“And after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.”
May you be counted worthy to escape the coming judgments.
May you and your household be preserved, delivered, protected and saved by God’s power, in Jesus’ name.
