The Ubiquitous Noah

Article#: 1287

The Word of God found in the majority-text Authorized King James Version of the Bible is direction and instructions for life. Those who embrace it find life and find life more abundantly, even eternal life. In the U.S., man spends 65 years of his life preparing for five years of retirement, but not 65 minutes preparing for eternal life. Obviously this disparity will not stand in the day of a soon-coming judgment. 

Have you prepared for eternity? Have you made your peace with God? Have you been born again — born a second time — this time of the Spirit? Do you follow Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? It is written in John 3:3:

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 11:25-26:

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

GOD SAID, Psalms 19:7-11:

7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

MAN SAID: The Bible is an irrelevant, unreliable composition for today’s enlightened man. 

Now THE RECORD. There is no reasonable doubt that there was a Noah, that there was an ark, and that there was a global flood. There is no reasonable doubt that the Bible is accurate when it records that God destroyed all that was upon the earth within whom was found the breath of life in their nostrils, with the exception of those preserved in the ark. There is no reasonable doubt. Brother Peter compares the skeptics concerning the return of the Lord Jesus Christ for the redeemed, to the days of Noah. II Peter 3:3-7:

3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

7 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.

At the end of this feature you will find listed for your consideration the Noah series.

Biblical minimalists, those who criticize the accuracy of the Bible but actually claim to be supporters of it (wolves in sheep’s clothing), and those who discount the Bible as the writings of mere men claiming it has no credible historic value, are consistently knocked on their aggregate ears. 

The Scriptures are true and righteous altogether. Truly they are the only place to build a life that will last forever. Welcome to GodSaidManSaid. This is feature article #551 that certifies the glorious, supernatural accuracy of holy writ. These features are archived in text and streaming audio for the building up of the faith and as ammunition in the battle for the souls of men. May the face of the Lord shine upon you with light and truth. We look forward to your visits. 

For you and me, the most powerful force in the universe is the spoken word of faith, for this very word can harness the very power of God. Be advised that Satan is busy attempting to erode this place of safety in your life. It is by the spoken word of faith that Satan’s stranglehold is broken and captive souls are set free. Romans 10:8-10:

8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 

9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

It is by the spoken word of faith that you and I, as the redeemed, have been given all power and authority over Satan and his minions. Be assured that no scientific discovery, or otherwise, has ever controverted the Word of God. Let your faith abound. 

The accuracy of the Word of God is more than staggering — it is supernaturally inerrant. Minimalists have challenged the accuracy of the historic record of the Scriptures, names, places, dates, etc. It should be a eureka moment for the minimalists to discover that the names of Noah, and his sons, and grandsons, and great-grandsons are ubiquitous in today’s world. They are still with us. They are everywhere, but unfortunately for the skeptics it seems to escape them. In the Answers in Genesis book titled, The New Answers Book 2, telling information is published regarding the names of Noah, his immediate offspring, and today’s history.

The accounts in the Word of God are true and righteous altogether. Surely it is a place to build a life. There is no reasonable doubt.
