“By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family.By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteous that comes by faith.”
Hebrews 11:7a says that Noah was warned about things not yet seen. What does “things yet not seen” refer to? (Genesis 6:7,13-21)Why was it difficult for people to believe the warning given to Noah?Yet, how was Noah able to believe it? (Hebrews 11:7a)What can we learn from Noah?
In holy fear Noah built an ark to save his family.Genesis Chapters 6 through 8 describe how this happened.What do the following expressions show about God’s way of salvation: 1) “Get into the ark, you and your whole family” (Genesis 7:1; John 1:12-13); and 2) “On that very day…Noah…entered the ark”? (Genesis 7:13; Mark 1:15; Luke 17:32)
Hebrews 11:7 says, “By his faith he condemned the world…”How does this parallel the way God uses believers in our own generation to condemn the world? (Genesis 7:16; John 3:19; 1 Cor 6:2)
Noah became heir of the righteous that comes by faith.What does “heir of the righteous” mean?(2 Tim 4:8; Psalm 1:1-6)
