Lessons from Noah, the Ark and the Flood – Part III “The Flood and the Righteous Wrath of God”
February 16, 2014 Message Title: Lessons from Noah, the Ark and the Flood – Part III “The Flood and the Righteous Wrath of God” Part 7 of The Scarlet Thread series Pastor Ayars Scripture— Romans 1:18-32 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. Main Idea—The Flood and the Righteous Wrath of God Four Foundational Truths Creation by the direct act of God Fall of man – sin Righteous wrath of God Salvation through blood atonement The Truth of God is revealed to all (Romans 1:19—20) so everyone is without excuse! Application Time— What have you learned about God’s wrath? Why is it important? Have you let the world corrupt your mind to the truths of scripture? How has God used this message in your life?
