But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall enter the ark– you and your sons and your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. Genesis 6:18
Covenant – A contract between two parties
Throughout history God has made covenants with humanity.
- The Covenant of Marriage (Genesis 2)
- Covenant of Abraham (Israel) (Genesis 15)
- The New Covenant of Jesus Christ (Jeremiah 31 , Luke 22)
In the days of Noah, when the world was full of wickedness and evil, God made a covenant with Noah and his family; through the ark he provided salvation for humanity. God made a promise to provide a way even though humanity didn’t deserve it.
While Noah showed obedience to God, the world mocked him. The world continued there sinful ways and didn’t repent or listen to Noah, because of there human pride, they all lost their lives.
“For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. Matthew 24:37
Just as God provided a means of salvation by a wooden ark, Jesus gave us salavation from a wooden cross. On the cross, Jesus said “It Is Finished”, establishing the “New Covenant” that provides us salvation from sin and death.
Just like in the “days of Noah”, Christians are being mocked and ignored. But just like the “Great Flood” the day of Judgement is coming. Your only hope for salvation is through Christ, don’t be the wicked and foolish who rejected Gods salvation in Jesus Name Amen!
