Walk With GOD or Swim With the Fishes: Heb. 11:7; Gen. 6:9-22, Are You Walking With GOD?

Heb. 11:7; Gen. 6:9-22
Man had become wicked. Man was created to be a steward of the earth but had made the earth a cesspool of immorality and a society of lawlessness and violence. Man was not living for GOD but for his flesh., living for beauty and sex, living for money, possessions, power…man had forgotten GOD. In fact man was working against the very purpose for which GOD created him.

When you read the text dealing with Noah, you should note the contrast between Noah and the rest of the earth. Noah was just and walked with GOD. Everyone else was corrupt and violent. No doubt the people the people of his day hated him and persecuted him. Noah’s life and teaching bothered then just like the life of a GODly man bothers the heathen today

(6:9a) Noah was Just! The Hebrew word tsaddiq means two things.
1. To be justified or counted righteous before GOD. I person is Counted righteous when he really believes GOD’s word.
2. To be righteous also means to live a righteous life and treat others the way you want to be treat. Fair and just.
It’s not enough to claim you know GOD!

(v.9) Noah was “perfect”. The Hebrew word for perfect, tamim does not mean sinless. It means honest and with good morals. Noah walked with God. The implications of walking with GOD are…
1. “You must be taken away.
2. you are at peace with GOD.
3. Fellowship is experienced.
4. Progress in Christian life.

The Maintenance of Walking with GOD
1. Bible Reading.
2. Secret Prayer.
3. Mediation.
4. Faithfulness to GOD.
5. Association with GODly

Motives for walking with GOD
1. It is a walk that is honorable
2. It is a walk that is pleasant
3. It is a walk that ends in heaven.

(6:11-16) Note the word earth means mankind. Man had become so earthly he was called earth. Remember man was created in part, to care for the earth but man had abused and defiled his heritage. Man was not taking care of himself or the earth. He was not offering himself a sacrifice. This reminds me of the current state of man. The things GOD called upon Noah were unbelievable, yet he believed GOD and accepted his word. Noah had to believe GOD’s commandment and build an ark on dry land in the middle of nowhere.

Why I Don't Eat Pork or Shellfish And You Shouldn't Either By Prince Malachi

"The truth is Christ is real, the truth is Satan's real The truth is one came to give life, one came to kill, The truth is Christ is real, the truth is Satan's realWhich truth do you choose? Which truth do you reveal? - Tunnel RatzMany Christians like to believe Yahweh exist but they pretend Satan does not. That is one of his greatest tricks. Yahweh wants us to be healthy and whole. But Satan wants the opposite of that for us. But you also have to understand this. Even though Yahweh wants us healthy, he also gave us free will. He allows us to make our own decisions and choices. But he still wants us to live a healthy life. Yahweh is not happy with his children dying of cancer, heart disease, strokes or suffering from diabetes, obesity and arthritis.Well like I said, we have the freedom to choose right.Nowadays most most Christians consider the dietary laws found…See More
