The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark — The Summary

What a journey we’ve been on through The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark!

It’s taken awhile, but I hope you can now see God’s work in Noah’s Ark that sails past your childhood Sunday School lessons. 

Below, I’ve collected each of The Red Threads we’ve seen, and I’ve shown how we can apply them to our lives today. [Read more…]

The Cloud ~ The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark (Part Eleven)

Rainbows & Clouds ~ Grace & Righteousness find themselves in Jesus Christ

Rainbows & Clouds ~ Grace & Righteousness find themselves in Jesus Christ.

 

“I set my bow in the cloud . . . ”
~ Genesis 9:13

 

in the cloud . . . not in the sky . . . not in the heavens . . . in the cloud.

Could this mention of “the cloud” be nothing more than a random detail? 

If rainbows couldn’t be seen anywhere else but in clouds, I might not have stopped to think about it, but they can, so I did.

I’m not going to tell you why God stated that He set His bow “in the cloud” because I can’t.

I can’t find any verse in Scripture that explains exactly why He didn’t set it “in the sky” or “in the heavens,” but let me tell you what I did find. It just may take your breath away as it did mine. [Read more…]

Noah and his family stepped out of the ark into a new world.

After Noah worshipped God at the altar, God responded.

“Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him:  ‘I now establish My covenant with you and with your descendants after you and with every living creature that was with you—the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you—every living creature on earth.

I establish My covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.’” ~Genesis 9:8-11

Don’t gloss over this monumental moment in the history of the world: [Read more…]

John 15:13 -- "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends."

At the end of my last Red Thread post, I told you I had one more post in The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark series.

Psyche!

In writing what I intended to be my last post, I realized The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark is just too rich to wrap up in only one more post. In fact, it requires three more posts, including this one.

Now on to today’s Red Thread in Noah’s Ark . . . [Read more…]

The Red Thread in Noah’s Ark (Part Eight) — The Resurrection

"The former things have passed away." ~ Revelation 21:4

“The former things have passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:4

 

Death is awful.

It’s worse than awful. It’s every bad word you’ve ever had your mouth washed out for saying!

We weren’t created to die. We were created to live!

The only time death will be joyful is when sin and death die forever.

Until then, we must face it and the excruciating pain of separation.

Thankfully, however, that doesn’t have to be the end of the story. [Read more…]

When the door of the ark slammed shut, life on earth was never the same. 

“. . . on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open,
and the floodgates of the sky were opened.”
~ Genesis 7:11b

It wasn’t until I was an adult that I began to realize how intense the rain of the flood had to have been.  [Read more…]
