Genesis 6:9-12 When the women of Cain, the daughters of men married the sons of God, the men of Seth’s family, wickedness reigned on the earth. Seth was a godly man and so were his early descendants but it is suggested they married ungodly women. “Do not be yoked with unbelievers.” (II Corinthians 6:14-16) Believers should not marry unbelievers. The unbeliever may influence the believer to depart from their faith.
Noah, a righteous man and blameless among his people, was the only one who wanted communion with the Lord. He kept himself apart from the horrible sins and wickedness, which surrounded him. He served the Lord God. He was a preacher of righteousness but a preacher who had no converts. In II Peter 2:5 and 9 it says, “If he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others….then the Lord knows how to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment.”
Noah and his family stood alone on the face of the entire world to take a stand against evil. Could you stand alone against everyone and all public opinions? If you and your family were the only ones on the entire earth who loved and served God could you speak against the decay of today’s society? Could you make a difference to lead others to repent from their evil ways and serve the Lord?
