 Grace in the eyes of the LORD              January 21, 2018

Genesis 6:5-8  And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  6.  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.  7.  And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.  8.  But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Genesis 7:1  And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Genesis 7:7  And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.

Genesis 7:23  And every living substance was destroyed . . . and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

This is like the wicked time we live in now. But for just one (Noah) God gave him grace to believe, even the impossible. This is the first time in the word of God the word grace is mentioned. Notice it changed everything for one. We don’t find grace in our goodness.  It’s how God sees me – with grace in His eyes. What do you think He will do for you? He opened up the windows of heaven because that is where the blessings come from.

James 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights,

The blessing that saves you will destroy the unbeliever. I am the apple of His eye. He said, “I fight for you”. That’s the supernatural life that lives in you. The plagues against Egypt saved Israel, but tormented the unbelieving. He abides faithful because of the grace in His eyes for you. Even when you mess up or don’t believe. It melts your heart and encourages you to live for Him. He is working on you through the power of the Holy Ghost. Things that kill men, deliver us. Take the helmet of salvation and live the supernatural life of the forefathers of faith. The enemy wants you to fear. We are loved with perfect love.

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

When I see the things in my life that seem fearful, I’m expecting a supernatural deliverance. Salvation for healing, strength, wisdom. All the things the devil wants to lie to us about, God comes in with the helmet of salvation, to have His thoughts.

Romans 8:37  we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Everything about the Lord is different than man. Don’t live man’s reality, live God’s possibility. Nothing is hard for God. Expect this supernatural life. Have a heart like David when he faced the giant; and Moses at the red Sea. I will not fear what man can do unto me, the Lord keeps me. Know that you are in His care. Noah listened to the word of God. Do you want to be ready? We must listen to the word of God also. God is for me, who can be against me? Noah was in tune with the voice of the Lord. He wants you to hear His voice. Tell Him thank you – praise Him. Full overcomers believe all the word of God. Don’t go half way, see the height of His deliverance. There were believers that perished in the flood. They didn’t completely believe. Noah built a ship in the desert, and believed God when He said it would rain when it never had before. It’s called faith. Believe Jesus in this age, that He is going to take a small company of believers from the body and rapture them. Noah kept believing. He and his family entered the ark. We are in a similar time. The windows of heaven are going to open again and those that remain alive are going to be lifted right out of here. The innumerable multitude will have to have a tear wiped away because they didn’t enter in. God’s word is true – absolute.

Hebrews 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith…

Noah had the message of the opening of heaven. Like Noah, the Apostle Paul has that message too, the message of the first trumpet rapture. A supernatural deliverance awaits those that believe. God doesn’t just want us to know about the ark, He wants us to enter in. Make the move now. What matters is how you finish!
