    DAILY MEDITATION - Hebrews 11:7


    Hebrews 11:7 
    7 By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, BY WHICH HE CONDEMNED THE WORLD and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
    What is so interesting about this verse of scripture is that when Noah OBEYED the Word of the Lord and prepared/built the ark to save his household, that very act of OBEDIENCE spoke condemnation to the world!

    This is what happens when we all walk in obedience to the Spirit of the Lord as He reveals His will and purposes to us and instructs us to do whatever it is He is speaking to us to do. The very act of obedience brings condemnation on all those who see what we are doing and reject it.
    2 Corinthians 2:14-17 
    14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things? 17 For we are not, as so many,[a] peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.
    These verses also speak of the manner in which we influence the world, whether we intentionally try to or not. If we choose to walk in obedience to the Spirit of the Lord, we have a profound affect on everyone near us. To those perishing, we have the "odor" of death leading to death as the Spirit convicts the world of righteousness and sin and of judgment.
    John 16:8
    And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
    In essence, all we have to do is do what God is calling all men to do. Repent and believe the Good News. When we do this, everyone else who does not repent and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ, come under the condemnation of those who are judged for their sin. Isn't THIS the reason the heathen rage against the true church?

    Think about this! The world is becoming more and more enraged against God and those who love Him and call themselves by His name. Jesus said this would happen and the reason is clearly seen in Hebrews 11:7. So don't be surprised when men revile you and hate you and want to kill you for so they hated the prophets before you for the same reason. You are doing what they refuse to do and this act of obedience brings condemnation upon them and they feel it!

    Soon after I received the Lord in 1976, I started receiving prophetic visions and warnings about the future of the church and the United States. I share my visions on my Hidden Manna websites and offer free of charge my two ebooks entitled “Hidden Manna” and “Hidden Manna 2”.
