Introduction

  1. The Flood was a great Judgement.
  2. Only 8 persons were saved.
  3. We have lessons to learn from it.
  1. ONE CAUSE OF THE FLOOD: MIXED MARRIAGES

    1. The TWO families before the Flood
    2. The meaning of Genesis 6:1-2
    3. The 'giants' of Genesis 6:4
    4. The principle of marriage: 2 Corinthians 6:14
    OBSERVE: How this should affect our lives.
  2. THE MAIN CAUSE: EXTREME LAWLESSNESS

    1. The breakdown of morals: v.5, 11-12
    2. God's "repentance" (Explain)
    3. How "it grieved God at his heart": v.7
    OBSERVE: Importance of having right thoughts and imaginations.
    APPLICATION: TV, books, etc.
  3. GOD'S PATIENCE MAY COME TO AN END

    1. See v.3: a period for repentance.
      Proof that God's patience was ending: v.13
    2. This taught elsewhere: (i) Gen. 15:16 (ii) Sodom (Gen. 18:20-21)(iii) The nations of the past: Babylon, etc. (v) The Jews, 40 yrs after the Crucifixion: "His blood be on us..."
      APPLICATION: Is this perhaps relevant to our nation?
  4. THE EXTREME IMPORTANCE OF BEING GODLY

    1. v.8: "found grace" (Explain)
    2. v.18: God's "covenant":
      1. a promise of mercy
      2. strengthened by an oath
      3. guarantees eternal life
      4. to all who believe God's word
      5. for the sake of Christ - recall the words at the Last Supper re. the covenanted mercies of God.
      APPLICATION: Are you in this covenant of grace?
  5. THE SIGNS OF BEING IN GOD'S COVENANT

    1. That God deals in mercy with us
    2. That God teaches us by His word
    3. That we are different from the world
    4. That we obey God carefully - see v.22
    OBSERVE: So Christ makes clear: Matthew 7:21
    Noah is an example of a godly man who lives by faith: See Hebrews 11:7

CONCLUSION

  1. All true Christians are so.
  2. Be obedient to God in all things.
  3. We too are preparing - for a great FIRE (2 Peter 3)
