As you know that were in gymasis chapter six, through nine today in inthe original language, when genes was was written written in Hebrew, therewere no chapter divisions, there were no verse devisions, it all was togetherand Jenis's. Chapter six through nine was Al together with the entire book ofGenesis, but for the Jews it would have been icorporated the story of Noah,very powerful passage, and so that's what we are today of port tomorrolsreading. Let me encourage your Genesis Chapter Ten, an eleven I have with metoday, blike...

I have some children and some of my children when they wereyounger, they had a Securiti or safety or comfort like and that linket wouldgo with them everywhere, because that was their comfort, that would comfortthem and in fact we have names for some blankets that are called coperrs. Now. Can you imagine this blanket, bringing someone comfortand then the person saying I want to comfort the blanket I'm going to comfort the comforter?Well, of course not that would be foolish. You don't comfort, anadamantobjects, but, interestingly in the text today the one that would bring Noah comfort was comforted by Noah Noah comforted the comper. It's anincredible passage that we see, in fact,...

Five, I'm going to begin readingwill read through rverse the then the Lord saw that the wickednessof man was great only earth and that every andear of the thoughtsof Man's heart was only evil continually. The Lord was sorry that he had made man on the Earth and God was grief in his heart. The Lord said I wil brought out manwhom I have created from the face of the LAN from a hand to animals to creepingthings to birds of the sky, for I am sorry that iave ever made m but no...

...found favor in the eyes of the it's interesting, the name Noah itself,meams Cumperor, so lets read it. A different way got issorry that he had made him but comfort found favor in the eyes of the Noah, Bro God, comfort, the heart ofGod, is not one that creates for the purpose of destruction, God created for Good God, desired manto have a relationship with you and it grieves God it hurts God. When mansends and Genesis six Manputs, evilcontinually and God's response to Man's evil. Heart is a wounded Ar we hurt Yoo by our seep.

What a loving and gracious Guf is, God, just of course he is ReaChapter Seven and eight. Yes, God is just, but God is Love, love and greace. In this chapter, it's not as justice.That's emphasized hits his love and rints. What a contrast. Man hadcontinually evil intentions, but no mankind as a whole was evil, but incontrast, one man Noah found grace in the eyes of o the rest of chapter sits highlights theamazing faith of Noah as no oe believed in God and believed in God's Wor, even though what God said seemed impossible, Noastilltily...

...at a time when God was grieved, no comforts, er, great God, no walk with God. We see in thischapter. You know that turn Wal is only been used of Adam before the fall Adwen eeven Walkd, with God of the cooltoday and Eno. Those are the only ones where the termWale Noah had such an incredible relationship with God and Noan's faithand obedience comforted God tart. That was winded because of man.

...walk with Yom, and that's the beauty of this pet inhigh lifes, no UF, comforting God, but don't forget that the far greater significance ofhis text is God's salvation of Noah as amazing as NOA's faith is. The text is not side tract from theGreater Mirac of God's gracious salvation. In fact, the next few chapters chapterseven an eight- were focused on the salvation of no one, his family throughthe arm and clearly the arc is a typhology, a pointing to Jesus Christ. The art saved man from the punishmentof Sein, as one considers the AR there are acouple of features that point to the person and work of Jesus crush.Interestingly, in this art that God...

Once you get in you're it, the Great Gud, once we're saying we'resayin we can, ex God selli. He holds us inhis ead forever and ever.
