#028 God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? (Numbers 23:19). In this episode, DrZ unveils in a discussion of the flood narrative of Genesis 6-7 three important points for believers. First, God will bring judgment against the wicked, their wickedness, and their wicked words against God using a means and measure appropriate for the situation. Second, God always announces what He is going to do to his prophets. And third, God will not destroy the righteous with the wicked.
The first point is seen in Genesis 6:5-7 - The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7 So the LORD said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.”
The second point is seen in Jude 14-15 - Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones 15 to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” And in Genesis 6:13 - So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.
The third point is seen in Genesis 7:1 - The LORD then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation.
There is a coming judgment against the wicked which may be coming soon as Jesus’ return is indicated by the signs of the times. As were the days of Noah, so the days are now…
Enjoy, share, and be blessed… DrZ
