CCLII. A Notable Warning.

HEB. xi. 7. “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things
not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving
of his house, by the which he condemned the world, and became
heir of the righteousness which is by faith.”

I. NOAH was warned by God of things not seen as yet,
and herein he resembles all of us, or certainly the most of
us.
When we die we shall not cease to exist.
The Lord Jesus returns to judge.
After the judgment will come the execution of the
sentence.
II. Noah believed the warning thus received.
He asked for no further evidence than God’s word.
He was in a minority of one.
He held to his belief a hundred and twenty years, when
there was nothing to support it.
Some say, for God to judge men is too severe, and
against their sense of justice. Does God judge and punish
now?
III. Noah acted upon the belief that the warning should
make him wary.
He made an ark. Our Ark is already prepared for us,
and we have only to enter.
There is but one Ark.
That one Ark is waiting for you.
Charles H. Spurgeon
