Word Received for the Churches
Wednedsay, June 10, 2020

The Spirit of the Lord would say to the churches: Hold fast to that which you have been given. Hold to the promises for I am a faithful God. Hold fast to that which is good. Hold fast to the confession of your hope. Hold fast to the confidence of that hope.

I am the God of great surprises. I am separating, sanctifying, sifting, and sorting. I am the Chief Shepherd. I know My sheep and they know My Voice. Do not fear, for I am the LORD. I am raising up a Holy Bride. I am a God of order and I am ordering things aright for Mine. Repent and follow the Christ. I am bringing to Mine love, power, and a sound mind. Be renewed in the spirit of your mind. I am your safety, your safe place—wherever you are, I am with you to prevail.

Come unto Me you burdened and anxious ones. In Me is Life. I AM.

So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you. Revelation 3:3

Dear Friends,

The message attached is next in our series, “Covenant: God’s Way of Relationship.” We are moving along in Genesis and have come to “
Noah: The Covenant of Preservation.” Since Jesus spoke of the time of His coming again in judgment relative to “the days of Noah,” this message helps us, I believe, better understand the mind and heart of God, that in His wrath He remembers mercy.

I hope this message will spark interest in Noah as a person and also in God who initiates the covenants unilaterally as a bond in blood sovereignly administered. This is Part One of the Covenant of Preservation.

With what we are seeing in the news or living out firsthand, Noah can “teach us a thing or two.” He lived in the midst of evil, yet he found grace in the eyes of the LORD. He remained faithful and held to the positive and let the wisdom of the Word of God inform his decisions, including what God said as He judged the earth and its inhabitants. He obeyed God when it seemed really ridiculous, since it had never rained yet on the earth and He was told to build an ark exactly to God’s specifications. He believed in something, the Living God, the Creator, someone greater than himself. He trusted the Source and Supplier of all Life and Blessing and found comfort in the Words God gave him and in his relationship with the LORD. God demonstrated His faithfulness.

God’s assignment for Noah gave him a mission, a purpose, and meaning. He would be responsible for building that ark, believing that the surely coming judgment of God would mean destruction to masses of people and animals and creeping things and birds, but he and his family would, by God’s grace, be spared, along with selected animals and creeping things and birds. His mission involved caring for himself, for his own family, and for God’s good creation according as God said. Noah kept a positive attitude and stayed strong in the grace of God by the preservation power of God. People likely mocked, scorned, and laughed, but Noah kept his focus with whole-hearted obedience to the LORD.

We persevere because God preserves. Be encouraged and recognize that as we support one another through prayer and words of wisdom, encouragement, and comfort, we are supported in the process.

Grace is not deserved and cannot be earned. It is the gift of God, and not of works. Noah wasn’t perfect; he fell short as have we all. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. God declared Noah righteous. God spared a remnant in His loving-kindness and mercy, and hit, as it were, the “restart” button. Find out more…and be blessed.

Mary Craig, D. Min.

Noah: The Covenant of Preservation Part 2 Sunday, June 28
. . .

Genesis 6:9 begins the book of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time. The earth was corrupt and filled with violence. God looked on the earth and then said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth… Make for yourself an ark …" (Genesis 6:13 ff). Total and absolute destruction will come on the seed of Satan; free and unmerited grace will be shed forth on a remnant, the elect Seed of the woman...

Noah: The Covenant of Preservation Part 1 Sunday, June 21
. . .

So we have creation culminating in the creation of man. Adam fell and plunged humanity into the estate of sin and misery. After the Fall of Adam, two seeds or offspring emerge: those who are of their father the devil and those who are in Christ, whose Father is heavenly…a Heavenly Father. When corruption and violence come to cover the earth, God brings judgment and we have the Flood. Let's look at it.

Corruption infiltrates to the point that "every intent of the thoughts of his [mankind's] heart was only evil continually. (Genesis 6:5)" God is grieved, and judgment is coming. God plans to wipe out humanity all together, and not only humanity, but animals, creeping things and birds of the air; God was sorry that He had made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. (Genesis 6:6-8) A remnant of human and animal life, and more, will be spared.

Genesis 6:9 begins the book of Noah. What can we say about him? In contrast to those living around him in his generation, Noah is found righteous in God's eyes, blameless in his time. Noah walked with God and had three sons. Noah had integrity. He was right with God and with man. Noah obeyed God wholeheartedly. His actions were just. He was not divided in his loyalty and supreme attachment to God. This does not mean he had no sin. He walked in living communion with God, but he was not perfect. "It was with God that Noah walked." (Derek Kidner)....
