Have you ever felt like you are at the stage of your Christian walk where the visions from God have started to flood your mind?
Listen! Those visions have been given to you for a reason. Do not make light of them!
As we continue with on with the Chronological Bible Study, we will focus today’s study on Genesis chapter 9.
You may or may not have been following along the other studies, but if you haven’t please click on the CHRONOLOGICAL BIBLE STUDY tab of this webpage so that you may watch chapters 1-8 in Genesis. Our focal character for today’s study is Noah. There’s something really special about Noah. God really wants us to know that while other people have strayed and no longer believe as God as their provider; Noah never stopped believing. So much so, that wickedness filled the earth, yet Noah is not spoken of in such manner. As a matter of fact, Noah is the OPPOSITE of wickedness. Noah loves the Lord. Noah walks with the Lord, and Noah obeys the Lord.
Because Noah has been faithful to God while others sin, God decides to flood the earth so that wickedness does not prevail. He cares about Noah and his family in such a way that He removes all iniquity out of Noah’s world so that he and his family can partake in God’s original plan.
Now that the flood is over, Noah is charged to leave the boat and to make a new life after the flood. Noah is charged with 3 things; to prosper, to reproduce, and to fill the earth. Sheesh! Those are all ginormous tasks, right?
See, you are no different than Noah. You who love God, who obey God, and who remain faithful to God have been given the same charge. PROSPER! REPRODUCE! FILL THE EARTH! Say what? Yeah. It’s true. But doesn’t that sound a little “charismatic” or “pentecostal”? Listen, you are here for a purpose, and that purpose is for you to do the will of God and to live out your calling, that includes the other previously stated charges.
