Now the sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem and Ham and Japheth; and Ham was the father of Canaan. These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated. Then Noah began farming and planted a vineyard. He drank of the wine and became drunk, and uncovered himself inside his tent. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it upon both their shoulders and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were turned away, so that they did not see their father’s nakedness. When Noah awoke from his wine, he knew what his youngest son had done to him. So he said, “Cursed be Canaan; A servant of servants He shall be to his brothers.” He also said, “Blessed be the LORD, The God of Shem; And let Canaan be his servant. “May God enlarge Japheth, And let him dwell in the tents of Shem; And let Canaan be his servant.” Noah lived three hundred and fifty years after the flood. So all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years, and he died. Continue Reading Genesis 9:18-29…

Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying, “Now behold, I Myself do establish My covenant with you, and with your descendants after you; and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you; of all that comes out of the ark, even every beast of the earth. “I establish My covenant with you; and all flesh shall never again be cut off by the water of the flood, neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth.” God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations; I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth. “It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh. “When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” And God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth.” Continue Reading Genesis 9:8-17…

Design of the Week – Promise

This week’s featured design is one that holds a lot of warning for America and the rest of the world. The design shows a rainbow going from cloud to cloud. In recent times, the rainbow has become one of the major symbols of the homosexual movement. I find this ironic to say the least.

The first instance of a rainbow found in scripture comes in Genesis 9:13. The time period is right after the global flood and Noah’s family being saved on the ark. When the water recedes and Noah leaves the ark, God places His bow in the sky as a promise. God promises Noah that He will never again judge the world in a global flood. The rainbow is a sign of His promise. It’s ironic that the sign of God’s promise regarding judgment has become a symbol for something that God later judged two cities for. Sodom and Gomorrah were so sinful that the sin “cried out” to God. What should be a reminder of God’s ability, desire, and promise to judge sin has become a symbol of one of the most rampant and “socially acceptable” sins in the world today.

Homosexuality has become so acceptable in today’s society that anyone that speaks out against it is automatically a “bigot”. Sadly, many people who profess to follow Christ support the homosexual lifestyle, with a large number actually living that lifestyle. This goes directly against both Old Testament and New Testament scriptures. Genesis 19, Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:20-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Galatians 5:16-19, and Revelation 21:8 make it clear how God feels about homosexuality. For anyone to say otherwise is for them to show a severe lack of scriptural understanding.

The saddest and scariest part of this is the fact that while God has promised to never again judge the world with a global flood, He has promised to judge the world again. He says that the world will be judged by fire this time. Homosexuals who do not repent will find themselves face to face with God and have no excuse for their lifestyle. The truth is, it doesn’t end there. Liars, thieves, adulterers, gossipers, and all other sinners that have not repented of their sin and put their trust in Jesus will be judged by God and spend eternity in hell.

God is not slack on his promises and He will follow through with them. The fact that He hasn’t done so shows His great grace and mercy in giving us time to repent and be saved and then tell others about the grace available to them!
