You Will Be Remembered

You Will Be Remembered

Genesis 7: 24 - 8: 1


24 And the waters prevailed on the earth 150 days.
But God dremembered Noah and all the beasts and all the livestock that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind blow over the earth, and the waters subsided.

When GOD remembers Noah, GOD:

1. Begins the process of readying Noah to exit the ark and reconstitutes his purpose as the agent of a new Divine Covenant; Noah is preserved for a purpose.

2. Breathes a fresh wind on the earth signaling that GOD's Spirit does show up in dead and confusing places with the ordering power of GOD’s life. 

  • A. The Waters of creation - Genesis 1: 2 
  • B. The Valley of Dry Bones - Ezekiel 37: 5 
  • C. A Garden Cemetery on the first Resurrection Sunday morning - Romans 8: 10-11 

3. Causes the flood waters to subside...they are not gone, rather, they have abated. It is a glimpse of a brighter future and a reminder that a better day is coming.

The storm is not done, the storm is passing over!

John 14:15-17 ESV If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you
