God was about to destroy every living thing. Noah had never even seen rain and yet in faith he obeyed God and built an ark – God’s means of protecting him and his family. God’s grace gave them seven more days to get settled in their new “home” which they were sharing with hundreds of animals! Noah carefully did all that the Lord had commanded.
Genesis 7: 1, 4-5, 16
Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation.
4 For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.” 5 And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him.
16 So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the Lord shut him in.
God Himself shut the door; there was no way out. God’s grace through faith saved Noah as it will save every one who will believe.
PRAY ALL ISRAEL WILL REPENT OF SIN BEFORE GOD MUST BRING DISCIPLINE AND JUDGEMENT.
