He outlived his great, great, great, grandson.

“Noah was the last recorded person in the Bible to live over 900 years. Genetic bottlenecks at the Flood and subsequently at the Tower of Babel were likely the main reasons for the decline in ages. But consider that Noah lived another 350 years after the Flood and outlived his great, great, great, grandson Peleg, who was the first recorded death (of a person) after the Flood. So it makes sense that many cultures began revering and worshiping their ancestors (e.g., the Shinto religion, Greek mythology, Egyptian mythology, Norse/Germanic mythology, and others) since they simply outlived their descendants!” Ken Ham 

Genesis 9:28 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.29 So all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years; and he died.

God and the “sound man.”

Every human being is morally obligated to thank and praise God for the precious gift of life. So often we treat Him as we would the “sound man” at church, giving Him no thought until something goes wrong. As Christians, we should also be bursting with worship, praise, and thanksgiving to God for laying the foundation of our eternal salvation. See also Psa. 136:1; Rom. 1:20,21.

Ezra 3:11 And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord: For He is good, For His mercy endures forever toward Israel. Then all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.

The horror of 9/11.

At times, the power of hunger, thirst, pestilence and plague may not be enough to soften the hard hearts of wicked men. America was brought very low by the horror of 9/11, but it wasn’t long until she crawled her way back into sin. Adversity sometimes makes people look to God, but often they prefer to find solace in sin. So don’t make the mistake of waiting for misfortune to come to the ungodly, thinking that it will give you opportunity to witness. It may harden them or distract them from your words.

Amos 4:6 “Also I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities. And lack of bread in all your places; Yet you have not returned to Me,” Says the Lord.7 “I also withheld rain from you, When there were still three months to the harvest. I made it rain on one city, I withheld rain from another city. One part was rained upon, And where it did not rain the part withered.8 So two or three cities wandered to another city to drink water, But they were not satisfied; Yet you have not returned to Me,” Says the Lord.9 “I blasted you with blight and mildew. When your gardens increased, Your vineyards, Your fig trees, And your olive trees, The locust devoured them; Yet you have not returned to Me,” Says the Lord.10 “I sent among you a plague after the manner of Egypt; Your young men I killed with a sword, Along with your captive horses; I made the stench of your camps come up into your nostrils; Yet you have not returned to Me,” Says the Lord.

Become a soul-winner!

“You all desire to glorify Christ by becoming soul-winners—I hope you do—and be it remembered that, other things being equal, he is the fittest in God’s hand to win souls who pities souls most. I believe he preaches best who loves best, and in the Sunday-school and in private life each soul-seeker shall have the blessing very much in proportion to his yearning for it. Paul becomes a savior of many because his heart’s desire and prayer to God is that they may be saved. If you can live without souls being converted, you shall live without their being converted; but if your soul breaks for the longing that it hath towards Christ’s glory and the conversion of the ungodly, if like her of old you say, “Give me children, or I die,” your insatiable hunger shall be satisfied, the craving of your spirit shall be gratified.” Charles Spurgeon 

Genesis 30:1 Now when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister, and said to Jacob, Give me children, or else I die! Now when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister, and said to Jacob, Give me children, or else I die!

“God wants to keep people from knowledge!”

Some skeptics see the word “knowledge” in Gen. 3:5 and conclude that God wants to prohibit man from having knowledge. They claim God likes people to be ignorant and unthinking, but they fail to consider what it is a knowledge of. But their sin brought evil into the world, and once mankind knew both good and evil, he had to choose between the two.

Before sin was in the world, Adam and Eve knew, and experienced, only good; in fact, God’s entire creation was “very good.” These same skeptics often complain about the evil they see in the world and blame it on God—yet it was because of Adam and Eve’s desire to know good and evil that we now know and experience evil.

Genesis 3:5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.

Wake up!

The church in America is like a sleeping giant that needs to be awakened.

Studies show that only two percent of evangelicals share their faith. The problem is the millions of spurious converts who sit within the Church—tares among the wheat, foolish virgins among the wise, goats among the sheep, etc. These people are in the midst of the American church, but they are not part of the true Church. If they were awakened to their true state, instead of a mere 2 percent we would see 100 percent sharing their faith, because they had a passion to do the will of God.

Zechariah 4:1 Now the angel who talked with me came back and wakened me, as a man who is wakened out of his sleep.

We come to know Him.

When we come to Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, we no longer walk in darkness. Non-Christians are like someone who is driving directly toward the sun, low on the horizon. It is very difficult to see clearly. But it is so different when driving with a low sun behind you—everything can be seen clearly. To those who have never repented and trusted in Jesus Christ, nothing will be clear. They search outer space to try to find their origins, because they don’t know where they came from. Neither do they know why they are here, or where they are heading. However, repentance is a complete change of direction. When we repent and trust in Jesus, all things become clear. Our eyes are opened to the truth and we hear the words of the Lord. We come to know Him and why we are here. We are not an accident, but were made by God for God. That is the purpose of our existence: to enjoy Him and His creation forever.

Numbers 24:15 So he took up his oracle and said: The utterance of Balaam the son of Beor, And the utterance of the man whose eyes are opened;16 The utterance of him who hears the words of God, And has the knowledge of the Most High, Who sees the vision of the Almighty, Who falls down, with eyes wide open…
