  • 00:07:25.627 --> 00:07:27.128
  • further than that.And so, let's go back to sixteen
  • 00:07:27.562 --> 00:07:30.165
  • And so, let's go back to sixteenhundred and twenty.
  • 00:07:30.165 --> 00:07:30.298
  • hundred and twenty.That would be compared to where
  • 00:07:31.666 --> 00:07:32.367
  • That would be compared to whereNoah was with creation,
  • 00:07:33.401 --> 00:07:35.804
  • Noah was with creation,thereabouts, all the way back
  • 00:07:36.304 --> 00:07:37.906
  • thereabouts, all the way backto sixteen hundred.
  • 00:07:37.906 --> 00:07:38.773
  • to sixteen hundred.Think about all the changes that
  • 00:07:39.307 --> 00:07:40.742
  • Think about all the changes thathave been made, all the
  • 00:07:41.710 --> 00:07:42.978
  • have been made, all theadvancements we've made, but
  • 00:07:44.012 --> 00:07:44.980
  • advancements we've made, butalso all the things that have
  • 00:07:45.680 --> 00:07:46.481
  • also all the things that havehappened that have not been
  • 00:07:46.715 --> 00:07:47.716
  • happened that have not beengood.
  • 00:07:47.716 --> 00:07:48.149
  • good.So, look at that and then look
  • 00:07:50.185 --> 00:07:51.820
  • So, look at that and then lookat today.
  • 00:07:51.820 --> 00:07:52.087
  • at today.And so, we say, "Well, why would
  • 00:07:53.722 --> 00:07:54.089
  • And so, we say, "Well, why wouldGod destroy such a beautiful
  • 00:07:55.357 --> 00:07:55.423
  • God destroy such a beautifulearth?"
  • 00:07:55.924 --> 00:07:56.791
  • earth?"And here's the reason.
  • 00:07:57.425 --> 00:07:58.727
  • And here's the reason.Because "The wickedness of man
  • 00:07:58.960 --> 00:08:00.328
  • Because "The wickedness of manwas great on the earth, and that
  • 00:08:01.630 --> 00:08:03.265
  • was great on the earth, and thatevery intent of the thought of
  • 00:08:03.465 --> 00:08:04.866
  • every intent of the thought ofhis heart was only evil
  • 00:08:05.367 --> 00:08:06.401
  • his heart was only evilcontinually."
  • 00:08:06.568 --> 00:08:07.936
  • continually."Well, you watch the television,
  • 00:08:08.270 --> 00:08:09.271
  • Well, you watch the television,listen to the radio and listen
  • 00:08:09.571 --> 00:08:10.338
  • listen to the radio and listento people talk.
  • 00:08:10.705 --> 00:08:11.640
  • to people talk.Does that sound a lot like this?
  • 00:08:13.308 --> 00:08:13.542
  • Does that sound a lot like this?"Every intent of the thoughts
  • 00:08:15.076 --> 00:08:15.544
  • "Every intent of the thoughtsand of his heart was only evil
  • 00:08:17.178 --> 00:08:17.979
  • and of his heart was only evilcontinually.
  • 00:08:17.979 --> 00:08:18.413
  • continually.The Lord was sorry that He had
  • 00:08:20.215 --> 00:08:21.383
  • The Lord was sorry that He hadmade man on the earth, and He
  • 00:08:21.816 --> 00:08:22.784
  • made man on the earth, and Hewas grieved in His heart."
  • 00:08:23.218 --> 00:08:24.553
  • was grieved in His heart."That is, God was brokenhearted,
  • 00:08:26.421 --> 00:08:27.222
  • That is, God was brokenhearted,"The Lord said, 'I will blot out
  • 00:08:28.523 --> 00:08:29.090
  • "The Lord said, 'I will blot outman whom I have created from the
  • 00:08:30.158 --> 00:08:30.425
  • man whom I have created from theface of the land, from man to
  • 00:08:32.260 --> 00:08:32.360
  • face of the land, from man toanimals to creeping things and
  • 00:08:34.362 --> 00:08:36.498
  • animals to creeping things andto the birds of the sky, for I
  • 00:08:36.498 --> 00:08:36.531
  • to the birds of the sky, for Iam sorry that I have made
  • 00:08:38.567 --> 00:08:40.068
  • am sorry that I have madethem.'"
  • 00:08:40.068 --> 00:08:40.235
  • them.'"And so, that's very dismal, very
  • 00:08:42.604 --> 00:08:42.637
  • And so, that's very dismal, verydiscouraging.
  • 00:08:43.371 --> 00:08:43.805
  • discouraging.God said, "I've created all of
  • 00:08:44.673 --> 00:08:45.240
  • God said, "I've created all ofthis, now I'm sorry."
  • 00:08:47.142 --> 00:08:48.810
  • this, now I'm sorry."And so, in spite of all the evil
  • 00:08:48.810 --> 00:08:49.110
  • And so, in spite of all the evilgoing on, the next verse says,
  • 00:08:51.046 --> 00:08:51.146
  • going on, the next verse says,"But Noah found favor in the
  • 00:08:53.615 --> 00:08:55.617
  • "But Noah found favor in theeyes of the Lord.
  • 00:08:55.617 --> 00:08:55.617
  • eyes of the Lord.And these are the records of the
  • 00:08:56.952 --> 00:08:57.018
  • And these are the records of thegeneration of Noah.
  • 00:08:58.753 --> 00:09:02.390
  • generation of Noah.Noah was a righteous man,
  • 00:09:02.390 --> 00:09:02.557
  • Noah was a righteous man,blameless in his time, and
  • 00:09:05.093 --> 00:09:06.628
  • blameless in his time, andwalked with God."
  • 00:09:06.695 --> 00:09:08.196
  • walked with God."Righteous, blameless, and walked
  • 00:09:08.563 --> 00:09:09.097
  • Righteous, blameless, and walkedwith God.
  • 00:09:09.097 --> 00:09:09.197
  • with God.Somebody says, "Well, does
  • 00:09:10.532 --> 00:09:12.067
  • Somebody says, "Well, doesblameless mean he never sinned?"
  • 00:09:12.067 --> 00:09:12.067
  • blameless mean he never sinned?"No.
  • 00:09:12.934 --> 00:09:13.401
  • No.There are two Hebrew words for
  • 00:09:15.604 --> 00:09:16.171
  • There are two Hebrew words forsin, and one of them which
  • 00:09:17.772 --> 00:09:19.441
  • sin, and one of them whichindicates that a person sins
  • 00:09:19.608 --> 00:09:20.809
  • indicates that a person sinsoccasionally.
  • 00:09:20.942 --> 00:09:22.077
  • occasionally.The other one indicates that a
  • 00:09:22.243 --> 00:09:24.145
  • The other one indicates that aperson is just a sinner, just
  • 00:09:24.279 --> 00:09:26.581
  • person is just a sinner, justlives that kind of life.
  • 00:09:26.681 --> 00:09:28.750
  • lives that kind of life.And so, the Scripture says, "The
  • 00:09:28.750 --> 00:09:28.750
  • And so, the Scripture says, "Theearth was corrupt in the sight
  • 00:09:30.352 --> 00:09:32.287
  • earth was corrupt in the sightof God, and the earth was filled
  • 00:09:33.355 --> 00:09:34.656
  • of God, and the earth was filledwith violence.
  • 00:09:34.656 --> 00:09:34.823
  • with violence.God looked on the earth, and
  • 00:09:36.291 --> 00:09:36.591
  • God looked on the earth, andbehold, it was corrupt, of all
  • 00:09:37.659 --> 00:09:38.159
  • behold, it was corrupt, of allflesh had corrupted their way
  • 00:09:39.561 --> 00:09:40.328
  • flesh had corrupted their wayupon the earth.
  • 00:09:40.328 --> 00:09:40.929
  • upon the earth.Then God said to Noah, 'The end
  • 00:09:42.397 --> 00:09:44.332
  • Then God said to Noah, 'The endof all flesh has come.'"
  • 00:09:44.332 --> 00:09:44.499
  • of all flesh has come.'"So, one family, one man in all
  • 00:09:47.569 --> 00:09:48.103
  • So, one family, one man in allthe earth.
  • 00:09:48.103 --> 00:09:48.403
  • the earth.So, think about this for
  • 00:09:49.070 --> 00:09:49.638
  • So, think about this fora moment.
  • 00:09:49.638 --> 00:09:50.672
  • a moment.Suppose we, in this country and
  • 00:09:52.240 --> 00:09:53.074
  • Suppose we, in this country andaround the world, suppose we
  • 00:09:54.242 --> 00:09:55.143
  • around the world, suppose wecontinue to move in the
  • 00:09:55.377 --> 00:09:57.145
  • continue to move in thedirection we're moving, away
  • 00:09:57.145 --> 00:09:58.713
  • direction we're moving, awayfrom God, with the intent of our
  • 00:09:59.381 --> 00:10:00.582
  • from God, with the intent of ourheart, seeking pleasure at any
  • 00:10:01.750 --> 00:10:02.917
  • heart, seeking pleasure at anycost, mistreating each other,
  • 00:10:03.918 --> 00:10:05.520
  • cost, mistreating each other,killing each other, all kinds of
  • 00:10:06.187 --> 00:10:06.755
  • killing each other, all kinds ofatrocities that go on.
  • 00:10:07.622 --> 00:10:07.822
  • atrocities that go on.Let's suppose we keep doing that
  • 00:10:09.424 --> 00:10:09.457
  • Let's suppose we keep doing thatfor a couple of generations.
  • 00:10:11.693 --> 00:10:11.693
  • for a couple of generations.Where will we be?
  • 00:10:14.929 --> 00:10:16.698
  • Where will we be?We can't even imagine it.
  • 00:10:16.798 --> 00:10:17.999
  • We can't even imagine it.But that was what was happening
  • 00:10:18.333 --> 00:10:19.834
  • But that was what was happeningin the days in which the Bible
  • 00:10:19.834 --> 00:10:19.968
  • in the days in which the Biblesays that, "Noah found favor in
  • 00:10:22.170 --> 00:10:23.972
  • says that, "Noah found favor inthe eyes of the Lord."
  • 00:10:23.972 --> 00:10:24.039
  • the eyes of the Lord."That is, He looked at Noah, and
  • 00:10:29.110 --> 00:10:29.277
  • That is, He looked at Noah, andhe saw a man who was absolutely
  • 00:10:30.779 --> 00:10:32.180
  • he saw a man who was absolutelydifferent.
  • 00:10:32.313 --> 00:10:33.782
  • different.And God reached down and spoke
  • 00:10:33.782 --> 00:10:33.782
  • And God reached down and spoketo his heart and gave him a
  • 00:10:34.916 --> 00:10:35.950
  • to his heart and gave him acommand, which he, of course,
  • 00:10:37.018 --> 00:10:38.620
  • command, which he, of course,followed.
  • 00:10:38.720 --> 00:10:41.256
  • followed.So, I ask you this question: if
  • 00:10:41.256 --> 00:10:41.256
  • So, I ask you this question: ifGod were looking for righteous
  • 00:10:42.691 --> 00:10:43.625
  • God were looking for righteouspeople today, would you fall in
  • 00:10:44.426 --> 00:10:44.726
  • people today, would you fall inthat category?
  • 00:10:46.628 --> 00:10:46.961
  • that category?Could you say that you are
  • 00:10:48.596 --> 00:10:50.799
  • Could you say that you areliving a godly life, a holy
  • 00:10:50.799 --> 00:10:51.199
  • living a godly life, a holylife, a righteous life?
  • 00:10:53.835 --> 00:10:55.303
  • life, a righteous life?Or would you be caught up with
  • 00:10:55.303 --> 00:10:55.370
  • Or would you be caught up witha crowd that Noah was having
  • 00:10:57.205 --> 00:10:58.506
  • a crowd that Noah was havingto deal with?
  • 00:10:58.606 --> 00:11:00.909
  • to deal with?While he was a blameless man,
  • 00:11:00.909 --> 00:11:01.176
  • While he was a blameless man,the days in which he lived were
  • 00:11:02.310 --> 00:11:02.977
  • the days in which he lived werefull of sin and wickedness, to
  • 00:11:04.813 --> 00:11:05.180
  • full of sin and wickedness, tothe point that God said, "I'm
  • 00:11:07.015 --> 00:11:07.949
  • the point that God said, "I'msorry I made them.
  • 00:11:09.984 --> 00:11:10.885
  • sorry I made them.And therefore, here's what I'm
  • 00:11:10.885 --> 00:11:10.919
  • And therefore, here's what I'mgoing to do as a result of it."
  • 00:11:13.221 --> 00:11:17.325
  • going to do as a result of it."So, when I think about Noah and
  • 00:11:17.459 --> 00:11:21.663
  • So, when I think about Noah andthink about how long he lived,
  • 00:11:21.663 --> 00:11:22.197
  • think about how long he lived,and then God said, "Can't put up
  • 00:11:23.965 --> 00:11:25.567
  • and then God said, "Can't put upwith any more of it."
  • 00:11:25.667 --> 00:11:27.202
  • with any more of it."But He found one man.
  • 00:11:27.202 --> 00:11:27.368
  • But He found one man.That man had three
  • 00:11:28.303 --> 00:11:28.737
  • That man had threecharacteristics that all of us
  • 00:11:29.671 --> 00:11:30.271
  • characteristics that all of usshould have in our life.
  • 00:11:31.706 --> 00:11:34.642
  • should have in our life.And that is that we do what?
  • 00:11:34.943 --> 00:11:36.478
  • And that is that we do what?We listen to Him.
  • 00:11:36.845 --> 00:11:37.912
  • We listen to Him.We what?
  • 00:11:38.079 --> 00:11:39.447
  • We what?Trust Him.
  • 00:11:39.447 --> 00:11:39.848
  • Trust Him.And we obey Him.
  • 00:11:40.982 --> 00:11:42.484
  • And we obey Him.So, think about this, if I
  • 00:11:42.484 --> 00:11:42.617
  • So, think about this, if Ilisten to Him, I'll know what
  • 00:11:44.018 --> 00:11:44.953
  • listen to Him, I'll know whatto do.
  • 00:11:45.019 --> 00:11:47.055
  • to do.If I trust Him, that means
  • 00:11:47.322 --> 00:11:48.289
  • If I trust Him, that meansI know it's going to work out
  • 00:11:48.289 --> 00:11:48.923
  • I know it's going to work outright.
  • 00:11:49.190 --> 00:11:50.258
  • right.And if I obey Him, I'm going to
  • 00:11:50.492 --> 00:11:51.593
  • And if I obey Him, I'm going tobe blessed.
  • 00:11:51.693 --> 00:11:53.595
  • be blessed.If I don't listen to Him, I am
  • 00:11:53.595 --> 00:11:54.162
  • If I don't listen to Him, I amnot going to trust Him and I'm
  • 00:11:55.029 --> 00:11:55.697
  • not going to trust Him and I'mnot going to obey Him.
  • 00:11:56.030 --> 00:11:57.565
  • not going to obey Him.So, what does that tell you
  • 00:11:57.565 --> 00:11:57.799
  • So, what does that tell youabout people around us today?
  • 00:11:59.334 --> 00:12:00.435
  • about people around us today?They're not listening to God.
  • 00:12:00.435 --> 00:12:00.435
  • They're not listening to God.They're listening to all kind of
  • 00:12:01.536 --> 00:12:02.036
  • They're listening to all kind ofstuff, but not to God.
  • 00:12:03.671 --> 00:12:03.705
  • stuff, but not to God.Now, people say, "Well, I don't
  • 00:12:04.839 --> 00:12:04.873
  • Now, people say, "Well, I don'tbelieve the Bible."
  • 00:12:05.974 --> 00:12:06.207
  • believe the Bible."Well, if you'll look around you
  • 00:12:07.075 --> 00:12:07.509
  • Well, if you'll look around youand read the Word of God, you'll
  • 00:12:08.143 --> 00:12:08.943
  • and read the Word of God, you'llstart believing it.
  • 00:12:10.345 --> 00:12:11.312
  • start believing it.Because God's already pictured
  • 00:12:11.813 --> 00:12:13.515
  • Because God's already picturedfor us what evil and wickedness
  • 00:12:14.249 --> 00:12:15.183
  • for us what evil and wickednessand sin is all about, and the
  • 00:12:16.317 --> 00:12:16.518
  • and sin is all about, and thekind of effect that it has.
  • 00:12:18.219 --> 00:12:19.921
  • kind of effect that it has.And so, God said, "There's one
  • 00:12:19.921 --> 00:12:22.824
  • And so, God said, "There's onefamily that I'm going to save,
  • 00:12:22.824 --> 00:12:23.658
  • family that I'm going to save,and that's Noah and his family.
  • 00:12:24.692 --> 00:12:25.193
  • and that's Noah and his family.So, I want us to think about
  • 00:12:25.627 --> 00:12:26.561
  • So, I want us to think aboutthat for a moment.
  • 00:12:27.128 --> 00:12:28.863
  • that for a moment.And the Scripture says that Noah
  • 00:12:33.334 --> 00:12:33.434
  • And the Scripture says that Noahwalked with God and he listened
  • 00:12:35.603 --> 00:12:37.005
  • walked with God and he listenedto God.
  • 00:12:37.005 --> 00:12:37.005
  • to God.And therefore, God saved
  • 00:12:39.407 --> 00:12:39.407
  • And therefore, God savedcivilization through one family,

  • civilization through one family,and that is through the family
  • 00:12:44.412 --> 00:12:45.580
  • and that is through the familyof Noah.
  • 00:12:45.747 --> 00:12:46.748
  • of Noah.So, think about this for
  • 00:12:46.748 --> 00:12:47.849
  • So, think about this fora moment.
  • 00:12:47.849 --> 00:12:47.982
  • a moment.Who do you know that knows you
  • 00:12:52.453 --> 00:12:53.388
  • Who do you know that knows youwho would say of you,
  • 00:12:55.456 --> 00:12:57.192
  • who would say of you,"He listens to God.
  • 00:12:57.192 --> 00:12:57.525
  • "He listens to God.She listens to God."
  • 00:13:00.628 --> 00:13:00.662
  • She listens to God."Who among your friends or people
  • 00:13:02.230 --> 00:13:04.933
  • Who among your friends or peoplewho know you would say of you,
  • 00:13:05.033 --> 00:13:07.135
  • who know you would say of you,"They listen to God because they
  • 00:13:07.135 --> 00:13:07.202
  • "They listen to God because theytalk about prayer and I think
  • 00:13:08.837 --> 00:13:09.304
  • talk about prayer and I thinkthey're listening to God."
  • 00:13:10.805 --> 00:13:11.239
  • they're listening to God."Who would say about you that we
  • 00:13:14.042 --> 00:13:17.045
  • Who would say about you that welisten, we trust, we obey?
  • 00:13:17.045 --> 00:13:17.111
  • listen, we trust, we obey?That those three simple
  • 00:13:18.279 --> 00:13:18.947
  • That those three simplecharacteristics, that's what
  • 00:13:19.747 --> 00:13:20.381
  • characteristics, that's whatpeople think about when they
  • 00:13:20.882 --> 00:13:22.517
  • people think about when theyknow you.
  • 00:13:22.650 --> 00:13:23.751
  • know you.You have a family, so people
  • 00:13:23.751 --> 00:13:23.885
  • You have a family, so peopleknow you.
  • 00:13:25.453 --> 00:13:26.054
  • know you.You work with people, so they
  • 00:13:26.654 --> 00:13:28.556
  • You work with people, so theyknow you.
  • 00:13:28.556 --> 00:13:28.957
  • know you.You have friends, and so they
  • 00:13:29.991 --> 00:13:31.526
  • You have friends, and so theyknow you pretty good.
  • 00:13:31.526 --> 00:13:31.793
  • know you pretty good.When they think about you, do
  • 00:13:33.361 --> 00:13:33.461
  • When they think about you, dothey think about you in terms of
  • 00:13:35.129 --> 00:13:37.398
  • they think about you in terms ofgodly qualities or the rest of
  • 00:13:38.366 --> 00:13:39.100
  • godly qualities or the rest ofthe world?
  • 00:13:39.100 --> 00:13:39.100
  • the world?She dresses well.
  • 00:13:40.535 --> 00:13:40.535
  • She dresses well.He drives well.
  • 00:13:41.736 --> 00:13:41.736
  • He drives well.They live well.
  • 00:13:42.804 --> 00:13:42.871
  • They live well.He makes this, that, and
  • 00:13:44.138 --> 00:13:44.806
  • He makes this, that, andso forth.
  • 00:13:44.806 --> 00:13:46.908
  • so forth.Or do they think of you in terms
  • 00:13:46.908 --> 00:13:47.876
  • Or do they think of you in termsof someone who listens to God,
  • 00:13:50.445 --> 00:13:50.812
  • of someone who listens to God,trusts God, and obeys God.
  • 00:13:54.515 --> 00:13:56.517
  • trusts God, and obeys God.Could they say that about you?
  • 00:13:56.517 --> 00:13:56.584
  • Could they say that about you?So, I want us to think for just
  • 00:13:57.719 --> 00:13:57.986
  • So, I want us to think for justa moment about what went on in
  • 00:14:01.689 --> 00:14:02.090
  • a moment about what went on inNoah's heart and mind and life
  • 00:14:05.059 --> 00:14:05.093
  • Noah's heart and mind and lifewhen God told him what He wanted
  • 00:14:07.061 --> 00:14:08.263
  • when God told him what He wantedhim to do.
  • 00:14:08.263 --> 00:14:08.596
  • him to do.And we've talked about the whole
  • 00:14:10.298 --> 00:14:10.598
  • And we've talked about the wholeissue of building the Ark, and
  • 00:14:12.700 --> 00:14:13.201
  • issue of building the Ark, andall the things that took place
  • 00:14:13.935 --> 00:14:14.736
  • all the things that took placewith that.
  • 00:14:14.736 --> 00:14:15.637
  • with that.And I think about what he had to
  • 00:14:17.338 --> 00:14:17.672
  • And I think about what he had todeal with personally.
  • 00:14:19.540 --> 00:14:20.008
  • deal with personally.He had to live with this in his
  • 00:14:22.577 --> 00:14:22.844
  • He had to live with this in hisheart, in his mind, in his
  • 00:14:24.746 --> 00:14:24.879
  • heart, in his mind, in hisemotion: they are all going to
  • 00:14:27.348 --> 00:14:29.284
  • emotion: they are all going tobe destroyed, and my family and
  • 00:14:29.450 --> 00:14:30.385
  • be destroyed, and my family andI are going to be the only
  • 00:14:31.152 --> 00:14:33.087
  • I are going to be the onlyones left.
  • 00:14:33.554 --> 00:14:35.590
  • ones left.And so, you and I live in a time
  • 00:14:35.590 --> 00:14:35.990
  • And so, you and I live in a timewhen we see wickedness on the
  • 00:14:38.393 --> 00:14:40.194
  • when we see wickedness on theincrease.
  • 00:14:40.194 --> 00:14:40.762
  • increase.And we think, "Well yes, but
  • 00:14:41.329 --> 00:14:42.830
  • And we think, "Well yes, butthis is the United States
  • 00:14:42.830 --> 00:14:43.031
  • this is the United Statesof America."
  • 00:14:43.398 --> 00:14:44.799
  • of America."Yes, it is.
  • 00:14:44.799 --> 00:14:46.134
  • Yes, it is.And so, while we rest in our
  • 00:14:47.101 --> 00:14:48.736
  • And so, while we rest in oursense of security, watch this
  • 00:14:49.237 --> 00:14:50.405
  • sense of security, watch thiscarefully, the only security you
  • 00:14:51.005 --> 00:14:52.540
  • carefully, the only security youand I have is our personal
  • 00:14:53.141 --> 00:14:55.677
  • and I have is our personalrelationship with God.
  • 00:14:56.044 --> 00:14:57.445
  • relationship with God.That's the only thing we have.
  • 00:14:57.779 --> 00:14:58.780
  • That's the only thing we have.And then I think about, for
  • 00:14:58.780 --> 00:14:59.347
  • And then I think about, forexample, to get all these
  • 00:15:00.248 --> 00:15:00.815
  • example, to get all theseanimals in, I don't know how God
  • 00:15:01.783 --> 00:15:02.417
  • animals in, I don't know how Goddid that.
  • 00:15:02.550 --> 00:15:03.618
  • did that.Somebody says, "Well, how could
  • 00:15:03.751 --> 00:15:04.285
  • Somebody says, "Well, how couldthat have happened?"
  • 00:15:04.285 --> 00:15:05.053
  • that have happened?"I don't have an answer and I'm
  • 00:15:05.486 --> 00:15:06.187
  • I don't have an answer and I'mnot going to give you some
  • 00:15:06.387 --> 00:15:07.255
  • not going to give you someanswer I don't know.
  • 00:15:07.255 --> 00:15:07.622
  • answer I don't know.But somehow God, over a period
  • 00:15:09.791 --> 00:15:10.992
  • But somehow God, over a periodof time, He got all the animals
  • 00:15:11.859 --> 00:15:12.961
  • of time, He got all the animalsin there, and ark was finally
  • 00:15:13.795 --> 00:15:15.730
  • in there, and ark was finallyfinished, and It's going to
  • 00:15:15.930 --> 00:15:18.399
  • finished, and It's going tostart raining, and it's not
  • 00:15:18.399 --> 00:15:18.833
  • start raining, and it's notgoing to stop for forty days and
  • 00:15:20.501 --> 00:15:22.236
  • going to stop for forty days andforty nights.
  • 00:15:22.837 --> 00:15:24.138
  • forty nights.Now, when we have a little spell
  • 00:15:24.505 --> 00:15:25.707
  • Now, when we have a little spellof something for about three
  • 00:15:25.707 --> 00:15:26.441
  • of something for about threedays, we have a fit.
  • 00:15:29.010 --> 00:15:29.844
  • days, we have a fit.And the Bible says not only did
  • 00:15:30.345 --> 00:15:33.147
  • And the Bible says not only didit come down, it came up.
  • 00:15:33.648 --> 00:15:35.183
  • it come down, it came up.Noah was locked in by the grace
  • 00:15:35.783 --> 00:15:37.552
  • Noah was locked in by the graceof God because, listen
  • 00:15:37.552 --> 00:15:38.319
  • of God because, listencarefully, because he listened
  • 00:15:39.787 --> 00:15:41.089
  • carefully, because he listenedto God, because he trusted God,
  • 00:15:43.157 --> 00:15:43.324
  • to God, because he trusted God,because he obeyed God.
  • 00:15:44.459 --> 00:15:44.559
  • because he obeyed God.Listen carefully.
  • 00:15:45.493 --> 00:15:46.227
  • Listen carefully.Those three things can save you
  • 00:15:48.896 --> 00:15:49.630
  • Those three things can save youfrom heartache, troubles,
  • 00:15:50.231 --> 00:15:50.965
  • from heartache, troubles,trials, difficulties, cost your
  • 00:15:52.367 --> 00:15:54.936
  • trials, difficulties, cost yourlife.
  • 00:15:55.236 --> 00:15:57.138
  • life.Listen to Him, trust Him, and
  • 00:15:58.740 --> 00:15:58.973
  • Listen to Him, trust Him, andobey Him.
  • 00:15:59.407 --> 00:16:00.508
  • obey Him.Do what He says.
  • 00:16:00.508 --> 00:16:02.677
  • Do what He says.It was not enough for Noah to
  • 00:16:02.910 --> 00:16:06.514
  • It was not enough for Noah tolisten to God or to trust Him,
  • 00:16:08.016 --> 00:16:09.083
  • listen to God or to trust Him,but obey Him.
  • 00:16:09.317 --> 00:16:13.488
  • but obey Him.And so, there he was.
  • 00:16:13.821 --> 00:16:14.956
  • And so, there he was.Can you imagine what they must
  • 00:16:15.023 --> 00:16:16.224
  • Can you imagine what they musthave felt when they heard the
  • 00:16:16.224 --> 00:16:16.524
  • have felt when they heard thecries and the calls of their
  • 00:16:17.458 --> 00:16:18.793
  • cries and the calls of theirfriends?
  • 00:16:19.060 --> 00:16:20.361
  • friends?And it rained and kept on
  • 00:16:20.361 --> 00:16:21.029
  • And it rained and kept onraining.
  • 00:16:21.362 --> 00:16:23.631
  • raining.And then all of a sudden, that
  • 00:16:23.631 --> 00:16:24.065
  • And then all of a sudden, thatbig old boat moved, just a
  • 00:16:26.134 --> 00:16:27.869
  • big old boat moved, just alittle bit, because there was
  • 00:16:27.869 --> 00:16:28.302
  • little bit, because there wasenough water now to move it.
  • 00:16:30.138 --> 00:16:31.005
  • enough water now to move it.Forty days, forty nights, it was
  • 00:16:33.641 --> 00:16:33.808
  • Forty days, forty nights, it wasnot a drizzle, but it was
  • 00:16:35.510 --> 00:16:36.310
  • not a drizzle, but it waspouring rain from above and
  • 00:16:38.146 --> 00:16:38.179
  • pouring rain from above andcoming out of the earth, until
  • 00:16:40.915 --> 00:16:42.683
  • coming out of the earth, untilfinally, there was not a sound.
  • 00:16:44.852 --> 00:16:46.054
  • finally, there was not a sound.The only sound was on the inside
  • 00:16:47.955 --> 00:16:48.056
  • The only sound was on the insideof that boat.
  • 00:16:50.825 --> 00:16:52.326
  • of that boat.The days went by, the weeks went
  • 00:16:52.326 --> 00:16:52.360
  • The days went by, the weeks wentby, the months went by; and
  • 00:16:55.930 --> 00:16:57.498
  • by, the months went by; andfinally, after God had
  • 00:16:58.232 --> 00:16:59.200
  • finally, after God hadaccomplished what He set out to
  • 00:16:59.734 --> 00:17:01.536
  • accomplished what He set out toaccomplish, the ark landed.
  • 00:17:03.171 --> 00:17:04.605
  • accomplish, the ark landed.God told him when he sent out a
  • 00:17:05.373 --> 00:17:05.773
  • God told him when he sent out abird, you remember, see what was
  • 00:17:07.708 --> 00:17:08.409
  • bird, you remember, see what wasgoing on.
  • 00:17:08.409 --> 00:17:09.277
  • going on.The bird came back.
  • 00:17:09.577 --> 00:17:10.311
  • The bird came back.Finally, one came back with
  • 00:17:10.812 --> 00:17:11.679
  • Finally, one came back witha leaf.
  • 00:17:11.813 --> 00:17:14.082
  • a leaf.God said, "Now you can go out."
  • 00:17:14.482 --> 00:17:15.550
  • God said, "Now you can go out."And one of the first things Noah
  • 00:17:15.683 --> 00:17:17.919
  • And one of the first things Noahdid was to build an altar.
  • 00:17:17.919 --> 00:17:18.252
  • did was to build an altar.Don't you know that was some
  • 00:17:19.287 --> 00:17:20.588
  • Don't you know that was somealtar, big altar, thanking God
  • 00:17:23.858 --> 00:17:25.726
  • altar, big altar, thanking Godfor what has happened.
  • 00:17:25.726 --> 00:17:25.760
  • for what has happened.The Scripture says he, "Built an
  • 00:17:26.961 --> 00:17:27.228
  • The Scripture says he, "Built analtar to the Lord, and took of
  • 00:17:28.529 --> 00:17:28.629
  • altar to the Lord, and took ofevery clean animal," and so
  • 00:17:29.430 --> 00:17:30.431
  • every clean animal," and soforth, and the Scripture says
  • 00:17:31.766 --> 00:17:32.533
  • forth, and the Scripture saysthat God said to him, "I will
  • 00:17:34.135 --> 00:17:35.103
  • that God said to him, "I willnever again destroy every living
  • 00:17:36.637 --> 00:17:37.572
  • never again destroy every livingthing, as I have done.

  • While the earth remains,seedtime and harvest, cold and

  • heat, summer and winter, day andnight shall not cease."
  • 00:17:47.582 --> 00:17:48.616
  • night shall not cease."That is, it will never happen

  • That is, it will never happenagain that way.

  • again that way.But He didn't say He wouldn't do
  • 00:17:53.788 --> 00:17:55.356
  • But He didn't say He wouldn't doit by fire.
  • 00:17:55.523 --> 00:17:56.457

  • 00:17:59.460 --> 00:17:59.760
  • Testament, that's God's view.And so, when I think about that
  • 00:18:00.962 --> 00:18:01.629
  • And so, when I think about thatand think about what God said,
  • 00:18:03.531 --> 00:18:04.098
  • and think about what God said,He said, "I establish My

  • I think about it in two ways:how beautiful it is, but I think
  • 00:18:43.104 --> 00:18:44.038
  • how beautiful it is, but I thinkabout what God said, "By this
