Gen1toRev22: A Way of Deliverance

Scripture Passage: Genesis 7:7-24

Observations on the Context:

In verses 7-10 we see reiterated that all life perished. The Flood was global and catastrophic. The fountains of the deep burst forth and the windows of Heaven (water canopy) was opened. For 40 days and nights rain fell and it wasn’t no sprinkle but a torrential downpour!

Yet God preserved life. He made a way of deliverance, of salvation, for Noah who sought Him.

Note the detail of the deluge; the tops of the mountains were covered with water. Everything land-dwelling died. Their lives were blotted out. For 150 days the waters prevailed.


Apply It:

God has saved people from eternal destruction and agony by making a way of deliverance through the cross of Jesus Christ. His substitutionary atonement of grace, through faith that isn’t even of our own volition but of His, saves individuals from the wrath to come. The question is, are you in Christ?

Pray It:

Cause my ears to hear and my eyes to see, O Lord. Accept my full surrender, join me to Thy elect people, chosen in Christ to bear His name as a witness to the nations. In Jesus Name, Amen.
