As The Days of Noah

Seven days ago FATHER had me focus on the faith during the times of judgment.  Once again this morning HE directed me to the Words Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 24:

37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

I must treat this as a warning to be shared among the brethren since my only intent is to share what is on FATHER’S Mind rather than my own.  Jesus clearly tells us that there is a parallel between the environment Noah was living in and the specific time we should expect “the coming”.  Further, Jesus mentions some specifics:

38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,

39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

Unrighteousness and wickedness had filled the earth and Noah and his family were the only ones to be saved from the imminent judgment to cleanse the earth.  The purpose of the flood was to remove the unrighteous and leave only the righteous to inhabit the earth.  Noah was not to be “raptured” away but was to dwell on the earth after the judgment was completed.

In similar manner, when the judgment came on Egypt the children of Israel were covered by the Blood on the doorpost on the night of Passover.  They were not taken away from the judgment but were protected by the Blood until the judgment was completed.

The days of Noah represent the transition between two ages.  The Pentecostal Age has drawn to a conclusion and those who represent that age are no longer of consequence.  There has been much written about the transition from Pentecost to Tabernacles and we are called to be patient during this transition just as Noah was patient as he endured the ridicule directed toward him and his family as they were building the ark.  Genesis chapter 6 provides us with perspective of just how bad it was:

5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

The issue at hand is the intent of the heart.  Do we have unconditional Love or evil intent?  Evil intent produces wickedness and results in wars, famines, perversity, and anything else that challenges FATHER’S Divine Intent of peace, blessing, and life.  FATHER gives men plenty of time to repent and change their ways.  In our court system this is called “probation”.  Once found guilty, mercy allows for the court to place you on a time of probation to see if you have truly repented of your lawless acts.  If you “break” probation then you are required to serve time in prison and are taken away from the population.

My friend Kemper has been led to focus on this “probationary” period and has been in our discussions recently.  The aspiring Sons are required to go through probation to determine if they are acceptable as mature Sons to represent FATHER.  These are also known as vessels of honor.  Noah had to go through a time of probation and testing.  Jesus had to as well.  You and I must go through a similar time as the harvest comes forth with its fruit.  The firstfruits must be inspected to see if the harvest is ready.  Will FATHER find us ready for the harvest?

Let us each walk squarely in the middle of FATHER’S Divine Intent of Love and await HIS instructions.  Once received we must respond without hesitation and carry out HIS Will in accordance with HIS plan and purpose for our individual lives.  This writing is in response to HIS direction as is every one I write.  It is clear that the transition period is nearly complete and we must listen closely:

22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

FATHER closed the door to the ark and judgment came.  Get ready.
