“Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth” (Genesis 7:2, 3).Text — Genesis 7:1-5
God’s wisdom cannot be surpassed by any other. Before the great deluge that came upon the earth, God instructed Noah to construct an ark by which he planned to save both man and beast to keep seeds alive. It is disheartening to note that animals occupied a larger part of Noah’s ark as only Noah and his family were saved. The condition for Noah’s qualification to enter the ark with his family was righteousness, holiness and obedience to God’s instructions.
This present earth is already marked for destruction by fire as the Scripture says, “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men” (2 Peter 3:7). Just as in the days of Noah, only the righteous shall be saved. Jesus is our ark of salvation today. As many as come to Him now, shall be saved and reserved for eternal life of joy in Heaven. Enter the Ark now while you may, tomorrow may be too late.
Enter the Ark now
Strive to be part of the preserved seed.
Prayer for today
Oh Lord, preserve me for heaven.
