“Are We Noah’s Generation?”

 

Genesis 6:9-22  This is the account of Noah.

Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. 10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.  11 Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. 12 God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. 13 So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 14 So make yourself an ark of cypress [3] wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.

15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high. [4] 16 Make a roof for it and finish [5] the ark to within 18 inches [6] of the top. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks. 17 I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. 18 But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark-you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you. 19 You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. 20 Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. 21 You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.” 22 Noah did everything just as God commanded him.

Background

 

A- Noach’s Father was Lemech

B- Lemech was 56 When Adam Died—111 When Enoch was no more—168 when Shem passed away

C- Lemech was taught by all these men and would have had to meet with them throughout the year to celebrate G-d’s “moedim” –His Holy Feasts

D- As Torah was in the Garden with Adam—so it was in the heart of Noach

E- Noach was righteous before the L-rd because He found grace 6:8

Background 2

Noach’s generation was exceedingly evil and G-d was grieved that He had made Man

 

A- G-d was grieved to the point that He had to act

B- G-d decided to destroy the earth by water

C- Genesis 6:13-16

Genesis 6:13-16

 

13 So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 14 So make yourself an ark of cypress [3] wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high. [4] 16 Make a roof for it and finish [5] the ark to within 18 inches [6] of the top. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.

G-ds plan of Salvation is clearly seen in His ‘instructions” to Noach

1- The Arc was set up along the same dimensions as the Temple—with it’s three decks-mirroring the three courts of the Temple

2- It had rooms-which in Hebrew is the word for “nests.”  The animals were most likely young and these “nests” were lined with everything they would need—this is a picture of Messiah preparing our bridal chamber—a place of rest from the storm of tribulation that is coming upon the earth

3- The Arc was covered in “Pitch”—which comes from the Hebrew word “Kippur” meaning to “protect, cover, annul, forgive, and pardon.”

4- Here G-d is prophesying His redemption plan –His planned “Atonement”—or Yom Kippur for the world.

G-ds plan of Salvation is clearly seen in His ‘instructions” to Noach

5- The Arc had a Roof—also mentioned as a Window and “An Opening”

 

This is taken from the Hebrew word “Sohar” Means light or Light source for Illumination

 

6- Genesis 1:3  Yeshua IS the  LIGHT

Genesis 1:3

3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

What were the Days of Noach Like

MORE BIBLICAL EVIDENCE

Son’s of Elohim desired man’s daughters v.2

People took whoever they wanted for wives v.2

Son’s of Elohim sired Children with the daughters of Men v.4

Thoughts were only evil at all times v.5

These things filled G-ds heart with pain v.6

 

Matthew 24:37-39

37As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

Lost Books of Oral Halacha

1—Referred to in the “New Testament” in the book of Jude 1:14

2- Recent archeological discoveries have revealed much to us about this intertestamental period: We now know about the Qumran Essenes, the Jubilee’s and other communities Jesus was familiar with

3- Do they shed any light on this time?

 

Historical Record and
Modern Comparison

Historical Record and  Modern Comparison

Jesus Knew all these things—this is why He said, “AS IN THE DAY’S OF NOACH”

 

We are on Par with Noach’s Generation

The ARC

A- Was built in the shape of the Temple

B- Only in building up our internal Temple—will we find safety in the day of destruction

C- We only are built up by Faith

D-”Faith Comes by hearing and hearing by the “TORAH” –Word of G-d

E-Only by putting Faith into practice will we find the Grace Noach found Hebrews 11:7

7By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.

Faith Brought Obedience Faith motivated Noach to action

 

Genesis 7:22 “By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith. “

There’s Only One Way Out

A- The Arc Sealed Noach and His family IN—as the Holy Spirit Seals us for the Day of Redemption

B- The Window—on the Arc was made of Skins—letting in the Light—The Torah is written on Skins and Yeshua IS the light

C- John 3:17-21

John 3:17-21

17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.[7] 19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”[8]

The Flood Destroyed All Outside Wickedness

A-Noach’s family was all saved—but His Son’s were not ALL sinless.  This is a picture of our battle with killing the fleshly thoughts and desires that burn in our mind against G-d’s Word

B-The Arc comes to Rest—a Picture of our Shabbat Rest from our own Works

The “Window” Was Opened

A-Since it was made of Skins—it had to be pierced.  This word in Hebrew is “Challah” meaning pierced.

B-In Genesis 8:7-Noach releases a Raven—the unclean bird

C-In Genesis 8:8- Noach Releases a Dove—which was a clean bird

Yeshua is the Opening

A-Yeshua was pierced, (CHALLAH) from His side both blood and Water flowed

B- The Raven is a picture of the unclean “blood” that flowed from Yeshua—And the Water is a Picture to us of the clean Dove that followed the destruction of the World

C-John 19:34-35

John 19:34-35

34Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. 35The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe

Noach’s first Dove returns

A- This is a type and shadow of Yeshua’s first appearing

B-There was no place for Him to place His feet—so He returned to the Father

C-Mark 1:10

Mark 1:10

10As Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.

The Second Time the Dove returns to Noach with an Olive Branch

A- This is symbolizing Yeshua’s Millennial Reign  where He rules from Jerusalem with the Torah going out to the whole world

B-The Olive Branch directly represents the Two Houses of Israel—in Peaceful Covenant with G-d

 

7″To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. 8I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. 9I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars–I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 10Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth. 11I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name. 13He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

Alechem Shalom and Shavuatov
