Then the LORD said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. Genesis 7:1
God chooses the righteous, He covers the righteous, He hides the righteous under His Wing, He protects the righteous and He never leaves nor forsakes them, He remembers the righteous.
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. Genesis 7:11
Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. Genesis 8:1
When God remembers you He remembers you and your household, and He will cause stormy waters, and stormy winds to pass you by.
But The Lord will not pass you by, He will always be with you.
The Lord must open the windows of heaven, pour out a blessing, and release the latter rain. God is not going to do this for just anybody. The Lord is about to open the windows of heaven for the righteous.
Those that love unrighteousness in these last days will not inherit the Kingdom of God, they will be left behind on the day of rapture, and they will drown. However, those that have been serving The Lord in Spirit and in truth He says that your hour of visitation has come! Arise for His Light has come.
You will no longer remain where you are. You will reap the harvest because you obeyed Him, and you sacrificed. You offered Him the best of your first fruits, and He shall reward you accordingly. The Lord rewards the RIGHTEOUS.
There is great significance in the seasons mentioned in this scripture. Remember seven is a significant number, and here the seventeenth day of the seventh month which is July is declared as the day where the ark rested.
Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. Genesis 8:4
The ark rested after being on stormy seas, and passing through stormy winds, the ask rested. The Lord is preparing you for a time of rest, and I decree and declare that by the seventeenth of July this year you and your household shall be in a season of rest.
Note that July is usually a time of rest, it’s a season of taking a break, of holidays, of vacating, going away. You’ve worked, you’ve toiled, you’ve passed through stormy winds, and stormy seas, but through it all The Lord kept you because of your righteousness, and righteous people deserve a time of rest. He hides the righteous in His love.
There will come a season where The Lord will bless the works of your hands. I’m focusing on where it says and He opened the window of the ark which He had made.
So it came to pass, at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made. Genesis 8:6
Noah obeyed instruction to create the ark therefore He had the authority and the go ahead to open the window of the ark, and because He obeyed instruction God also empowered Noah with wisdom to send out a messenger to check out the conditions of the land. Noah was expected to enter into the season of change, of new life, and of a new covenant. Noah waited on The Lord and after waiting He acted out in faith.
Four times Noah sent messengers, and after the forth attempt his messengers did not return to him.
So he waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove, which did not return again to him anymore. Genesis 8:12
After acting out on faith Noah waited on The Lord again, and indeed the flood had stopped.
The first month being January, and the first day of the month to. A reminder to give our first fruits our first source of income in the first month of the year to bless God, and His Kingdom. Again, it’s amazing that the flood stopped in the month of February and on a significant date to, the 27th, seven being a divine number.
The month of February is a season where The Lord releases the latter rain, brings a stop to the stormy seasons, and brings forth a refreshing. It is a time where we must see the glory of The Lord, but first bring a sacrifice and what is that sacrifice true worship, righteousness, obedience.
Noah obeyed, he sacrificed, he offered, he stepped out in faith, he acted, and he worshipped. ‘Worship unlocks heaven.’
And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, that the waters were dried up from the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked, and indeed the surface of the ground was dry. Genesis 8:13
And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dried. Genesis 8:14 ❤️🙏
Bring out with you every living thing of all flesh that is with you: birds and cattle and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, so that they may abound on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.” Genesis 8:17
Then Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. Genesis 8:20
And the LORD smelled a soothing aroma. Then the LORD said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done. Genesis 8:21
The Lord hears the cry of the righteous. Whether it was a dry season or whether it was a rainy season. The windows of heaven removed all that was evil, and restored all that was good. The dry season was a fresh season , and for Noah it was a fruitful season. There is a season, a time for everything.
“While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22
God blesses the righteous.
So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth. Genesis 9:1
God blessed Noah, and reminded him again that He has given us dominion and authority.
And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be on every beast of the earth, on every bird of the air, on all that move on the earth, and on all the fish of the sea. They are given into your hand. Genesis 9:2
Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs. Genesis 9:3
And as for you, be fruitful and multiply; Bring forth abundantly in the earth And multiply in it.” Genesis 9:7
God is a covenant keeping God. Because of the righteous His covenant is forever established. He remembers the covenant because of His son He shall forgive and remember you.
“And as for Me, behold, I establish My covenant with you and with your descendants after you, Genesis 9:9
Noah was not perfect but He served The Lord with his whole heart, he obeyed God, he sacrificed, he understood worship, he was a humble man, and most importantly he understood covenant. However, this same man of God that done all these things still got drunk.
And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard. Genesis 9:20
Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent. Genesis 9:21
Another man of God that understood covenant, and that God established his covenant with was Abraham.
When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. Genesis 17:1
And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” Genesis 17:2
Walk before The Lord in righteousness, and be blameless and He shall establish His covenant with you. The Lord loves the humble heart, He loves a heart full of worship. Abraham understood the actions to worship and reverence the presence of God.
God speaks when we serve Him in spirit and in truth, when we worship.
Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: Genesis 17:3
“As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. Genesis 17:4
No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. Genesis 17:5
When The Lord establishes His covenant with you, He changes your name, He changes your identity. A blessed man, a man of covenant is a changed man.
I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. Genesis 17:6
And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Genesis 17:7
Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” Genesis 17:8
And God said to Abraham: “As for you, you shall keep My covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations. Genesis 17:9
This is My covenant which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants after you: Every male child among you shall be circumcised; Genesis 17:10
If we keep the covenant that The Lord established with Abraham then we also inherit the same blessings.
Also remember there is no where in the bible that it says a female child must be circumcised. This is a man made abomination, and has nothing to do with God’s laws.
He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised, every male child in your generations, he who is born in your house or bought with money from any foreigner who is not your descendant. Genesis 17:12
He who is born in your house and he who is bought with your money must be circumcised, and My covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. Genesis 17:13
It is good to be circumcised however the New Testament states that a circumcised sinner is no different from an uncircumcised sinner. We are made righteous through Jesus Christ, so no one ought to believe that they are better than the other.
And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law. Galatians 5:3
For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. Galatians 5:5
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love. Galatians 5:6
Then God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. Genesis 17:15
And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her.” Genesis 17:16
Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Shall a child be born to a man who is one hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child? ” Genesis 17:17
And Abraham said to God, “Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!” Genesis 17:18
Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. Genesis 17:19
His covenant is established through Isaac making Isaac the first born.Isaac is Israel. Because of The Lord Jesus Christ His covenant has also been established through us, this is the new covenant.
We have been redeemed through The Blood of The Lamb. “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— Jeremiah 31:31
not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the LORD. Jeremiah 31:32
But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Jeremiah 31:33
No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” Jeremiah 31:34
And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. Hebrews 9:15
Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you. Luke 22:20
However, only to those that apply the same principles of His Word, that obey, walk in righteousness, operate in faith, love, serve in humility, worship God in Spirit and in Truth inherit the Kingdom of God. We must walk in the new covenant, and then we are changed. If we do not apply the principles of His Word, then we will not inherit the Kingdom of God. He promises and establishes His Kingdom with those that obey and put their trust in His Word.
And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. Genesis 17:20
Ishmael is blessed the Arab world is blessed, but His covenant is not established with them.
But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year.” Genesis 17:21
Covenant keeping God! There is no one like You. Alpha and Omega! There is no one like You.🔥❤️🙌
And the LORD visited Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did for Sarah as He had spoken. Genesis 21:1
For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. Genesis 21:2
Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. Genesis 21:5
And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.” Genesis 21:6
She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.” Genesis 21:7
King Abimilech understood that Abraham was a man of covenant. He knew that Abraham was a blessed man, and despite his title his status of being a king he humbled himself and associated himself with Abraham. He strategically positioned himself with Abraham, and made a covenant with him so that he to and his people would also be blessed. That is wisdom.
And it came to pass at that time that Abimelech and Phichol, the commander of his army, spoke to Abraham, saying, “God is with you in all that you do. Genesis 21:22
Now therefore, swear to me by God that you will not deal falsely with me, with my offspring, or with my posterity; but that according to the kindness that I have done to you, you will do to me and to the land in which you have dwelt.” Genesis 21:23
And Abraham said, “I will swear.” Genesis 21:24
Thus they made a covenant at Beersheba. So Abimelech rose with Phichol, the commander of his army, and they returned to the land of the Philistines. Genesis 21:32
Then Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there called on the name of the LORD, the Everlasting God. Genesis 21:33
You know Abraham and many of God’s servants in the bible understood the importance of establishing altars, honouring and reverencing the presence of God. We must learn to apply the principles of God in our lives in this day and age. Whatever we do it is sure to affect our future generations to come. Do you know that this same king Abimilech that established a covenant with Abraham, also established a covenant with his son Isaac.
Then Abimelech came to him from Gerar with Ahuzzath, one of his friends, and Phichol the commander of his army. Genesis 26:26
But they said, “We have certainly seen that the LORD is with you. So we said, ‘Let there now be an oath between us, between you and us; and let us make a covenant with you, Genesis 26:28
that you will do us no harm, since we have not touched you, and since we have done nothing to you but good and have sent you away in peace. You are now the blessed of the LORD.’ ” Genesis 26:29
Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him. Genesis 26:12
The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous; Genesis 26:13❤️🙌
Be in the company of the righteous for they are blessed, and you shall find favour. He has established His covenant let us abide in it, and continue to walk in righteousness. Whatever you have sown, you shall surely reap in The Mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.❤️🙏
The Lord has established His new covenant.He said “Do this in remembrance of Me”.To eat of His Body, and to drink of His Blood.Holy Communion, a reminder for all of His children of the new covenant and the sacrifice that He made for our salvation.You and I have been redeemed by His Blood, and have become a new creation.Now therefore, we have become a new creation in Christ Jesus.The old has passed away, and we have become new.Yet we are still heirs of the Abrahamic blessings, because He has purchased us by His Blood we have become heirs of salvation.
Dedicated to P.Z.G 😊🔥❤️🙏
