Genesis 6:1–8 ESV
When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. So the Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
Genesis 6:
Today we are looking at a time of terrible catastrophe. A time when the wickedness and the violence of depravity of man reached stooped to such a level that God could no longer stomach it. Now we are living in a day in age where the scoffers and the wicked men of the day laugh and scoff at such stories in the Bible. Yeah there go those Bible thumpers again with their archaic fables. But may I tell you that Archaeologist tell us will tell you that there was a worldwide flood. We have found all across the globe from every great civilization stories, or legends about a worldwide flood.
We can see from geology that there was worldwide flood. In fact you can go to the Grand Canyon and see plenty of evidence for a flood. carved out in the canyon we can see rock layers and we can see where the rock lays all of a sudden shoot straight up. We have millions of dinosaurs who have been fossilized and that means that they died and were buried very quickly, that's the only reason we have a fossil record.
THE DAYS OF NOAH ARE SIMILAR TO THE DAYS OF CHRIST
But let me tell you why you should believe the Bible when it speaks of this dangerous time of the flood and that is because Jesus believed that there was a flood. and He warned of a day leading up to the time when Noah and His family boarded the Ark would parallel to the days when he returns. Days that I am afraid we might be living in today.
Matthew 24:37 ESV
For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Matthew
Matthew 24:36–39 ESV
“But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Matthew 24:36
The lord gave us signs to be watching for that will let us know that His return is near. That is the last C on that chart. The Consumation when the Son of God returns and takes his rightful place as Lord over all the Earth and all that you and I have done for the Kingdom will be brought into account and tested with fire.
Now how are the Days of Noah and the days that preceed the return of Christ the same?
First of all they were

Days of Apostasy

Genesis 6:1–5 ESV
When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Gen 6:1
Now there are a couple schools of thought on this passage, And who these Nephelim and the identity of the sons of God and the daughters of men. Some believe that when it refers to the Sons of God that it is referring to the godly son of Seth marrying the cursed daughters of Cain. The other main theory is that the fallen angels that we call demons looked upon the daughters of men and these demons impregnated women and they gave birth to these half demon half human giants. Whichever the case it was an unholy alliance and these were days of apostasy. Days that corruption settled into the darkest depths of mans heart and they did what they wanted
Jesus said that in the last days there will be a rise of false teachers and false prophets. Paul tells us in
1 Timothy 4:1 ESV
Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons,

Days of Anarchy

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
What were these mighty men renown for? Well it is obviously connected with the with the great wickedness on the Earth
They were the revolutionists of their days. They were the movers and shakers of their day. Now the use of intention of the thoughts, is an interesting word in the Hebrew and it means “to shape, as a potter would shape with his hands”. These men were the influencers of their day, inventing new ways of evil. Introducing to the world new wicked philosophies of their day. They were renown for normalizing perversity, and spreading vice and immorality.
They were the Hugh Hefner, the Lady Gaga’s, The Richard Dawkins of the Days that were setting out to influence the world into rebellion against Almighty God. That are introducing new social norms, doing all that they can to convince people that there is no God to fear, no hell to shun. That God is dead and you are the captain of your own ship, the ruler and inventor of your own destiny. We are living in dangerous days.
look at Verse 112
Genesis 6:11 ESV
Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight, and the earth was filled with violence.
The earth was filled with violence.
Now I want you to think about the day that we are living in. Is there a spirit of anarchy around the world? Hatred rules the day. Have you seen riots with looting , plundering and destroying property. have you seen the anti law enforcement mentality? Have you seen a deluge of pornography that has destroyed millions of families? Do we see worldwide terrosim and domestic terroism. Think of the programming on TV today. How violent things are today. How graphic things are today. Think how vicious people are today. Jesus said those days are coming.

Days of Apathy

Adrian Rogers Sermon Archive C. The Days of Noah Were Days of Apathy

But not only was there apostasy and anarchy in the time of Noah, but there was apathy. Jesus there, in the scripture that we referred to in Matthew chapter 24, verse 38, said that just before the flood—I mean, to the very day that the flood came—they were eating and drinking, they were marrying and giving in marriage, and knew not until the flood came. (Matthew 24:38)

The bible also said that Niah was a preacher of righteousness whose message lasted for 120 years. For 120 years God’s prophet stood before the people preaching a message of repentance, warning them of the impending judgment of God Almighty. They watched Noah and His family build this monstrous ship, but all they did was laugh and mock, and scoff at his message. Much like they do today. But listen every playboy has his playday. And the waters of Gods wrath are about to overtake the dam of His mercy. And there is a time when sin and corruption reaches to the heights of heaven and the only thing God Almighty can do is enter into judgement.
Adrian Rogers Sermon Archive III. Grace Provides Security

—2 Peter chapter 3—and begin reading in verse 3. Peter’s talking about the end days, and he says, “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts …”—and every time you find a person that scoffs at God’s Word, you’re going to find a person who’s walking after his own lusts. You find a man who mocks God’s Word; I’ll show you a man with the devil’s initials carved on his heart.

—2 Peter chapter 3—and begin reading in verse 3. Peter’s talking about the end days, and he says, “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts …”—and every time you find a person that scoffs at God’s Word, you’re going to find a person who’s walking after his own lusts. You find a man who mocks God’s Word; I’ll show you a man with the devil’s initials carved on his heart.

2 Peter 3:3–7 ESV
knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.
But the Lord is not slack concerning his promise, but is not willing that any should perish buyt that all should come to repentance.
Genesis 6:7–8 ESV
So the Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
Love that little word but, But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord!!
Grace ! Beautiful grace
We also have a grace. Noahs grace was found on the inside of an Ark! It became an Ark of deliverance, and Ark of Salvation. An Ark that protected from the judgment waters of a Holy God. Who’s desire is for man to walk in righteouness, when there is righteouness there is peace.
THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE ARK
Made From Gopher Wood
Genesis 6:14 ESV
Make yourself an ark of gopher wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and out with pitch.
-
Gopher wood, many believe to be Cyprus wood. And Cyprus wood is an incorruptable wood Throughout scripture God uses Wood to describe humanity.
Adrian Rogers Sermon Archive A. The Security of the Ship

And Jesus was human, and the wood of this ship speaks of the humanity of Jesus. Isaiah says He’ll be like a shoot out of a dry ground. (Isaiah 53:2) A tree represents a righteous man. And God said, concerning a righteous man, “He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water.” (Psalms 1:3) And Jesus, God’s righteous tree, was cut down in His youth.

You see because of our sin it had to be a human that stood in for humans. It had to be a human that paid the price of sin. God could not send an angel, He could not find a good person. So God would send his only son, born of a woman, born under the law but yet without sin!.....
THE PITCH
Look again at verse 14 and
Genesis 6:14 ESV
Make yourself an ark of gopher wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and out with pitch.
Now what is pitch? Well, pitch is a gummy tar, a rosin, if you will, made out of an oily substance that was very much like goo and glue put together. And this pitch would be smeared all on the outside of the ark, and then it would be smeared all on the inside of the ark, because this ark made of gopher wood has to float.
Now the interesting thing about this word pitch, it’s the Hebrew word “kopher.” It is translated in the Bible more than seventy times “atonement”—the same word. And atonement and pitch are the same word. It all depends on how you use it.
What does the water represent? The water represents the judgmentof Holy God. his nature demands punishment of sin. And let me tell you this was the most waterproof vessell in all of human history. Not a drop of water made it to the inside because it was covered in pitch. It was covered with atonment.

11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life

THE SHAPE OF THE ARK-
Genesis 6:15 ESV
This is how you are to make it: the length of the ark 300 cubits, its breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits.
This was not built like carnival Cruise ships. In fact this thing didn’t have a rudder on it . it was guided by the nad of God. It was 300 cubits, long that is this thing was as long as a fottbal field and a half. 50 cubits wide (75 foot wide) and 30 cubits high 45 foot high. and there were three different levels within it. Man built a Titanic out of steel and iron with the best ship engineers in the world and it sunk. God built a box and it preserved all of life. Do you know what this Ark looked Like?
They were days of Apostasy- The day had become full of
It was shaped like a coffin. Now remember this ark is a type of the Lord Jesus Christ and Noah, His family and a two of every type of life is boarded on this Floating coffin… and not only that but this floating coffin has three different levels in it. This pictures the death of the Lord Jesus Christ and the three days that he remained in that Grave.
There was one Entrance to the Ark and that was the Door in the Side. No man can come to the Father except through the Lord Jesus Christ
Genesis 6:16 ESV
Make a roof for the ark, and finish it to a cubit above, and set the door of the ark in its side. Make it with lower, second, and third decks.
They were Days of Anarchy-
Genesis 7:16 ESV
And those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him. And the Lord shut him in.
Genesis 7:
Listen when Noah went into that ship he went in as a fool. When he caem off he came off the wisest person that there was! When he went into the ship he went in as a pauper when he came off he inherited the wholke earth. Blessed are the meek for they will inherit the Earth
(The earth was filled with violence)
Adrian Rogers Sermon Archive III. Noah’s Ark Pictures Our Security

Now that would be ridiculous, but that’s the kind of faith some people have. They think that they are kept by their holding on to God. It’s not so. I can see Noah holding that slimy peg, saying in the midst of that storm to his wife, “Sweetheart, pray for me I’ll hold out faithful to the end.” Well, I will promise you he never would have made it.

God put him in the ark. God shut the door. God shut the storm out. God shut Noah in with Himself

Did you know why Methuselah lived to be 969 years old? Because God said, “When Methuselah dies, the flood will come.” I can show you from the Word of God that the flood came exactly the day that Methuselah died. And the reason that Methuselah died old was not that he had good genes, but that God had great mercy. God kept letting him live—God kept letting him live—because God did not want anybody to die and perish in that flood. So God kept giving one more opportunity and one more chance.

What’s all of this saying? Listen, folks. Listen to me. God wants you saved today. And God says, “Don’t yawn in the face of God and say, ‘Well, it’s been two thousand years; the judgment is not coming.’ ” As sure as I’m standing here, the judgment is coming. The earth is going to melt with fever heat, and you’d better be in the ark of safety, whose name is the Lord Jesus Christ. And you’d better know the grace of Almighty God—God’s amazing, wonderful grace.

I can imagine a little boy back in Noah’s time coming home to his dad and saying, “Daddy, listen. You know where I’ve been? I’ve been over there to Mr. Noah’s place, and Daddy, Mr. Noah is building a boat. You won’t believe how big that thing is. And, Dad, Mr. Noah has been preaching. Every now and then, he’ll put the hammer down, and he’ll turn around and preach to those people who are watching. And Mr. Noah says that he has it from God that God is sick and tired of the way that people are living, and God’s going to judge this world, and God’s going to send a flood. And, Daddy, Mr. Noah says that everybody’s got to get on board that ship, because if they don’t get on board that ship, they are going to drown.”

“Ha, ha,” this father, he begins to laugh, “ha, ha, ha.” And the little boy has a tear in the corner of his eye, and the daddy sees it. “Oh,” he says, “I’m sorry, Son. I wasn’t laughing at you, Son. If I was laughing at anything, I was laughing at myself. You see, Son, let me tell you something. Noah has been building that boat for a long time. When I was a little boy, I went out to see Noah building that boat. Son, he told me the same story. It scared the wits out of me. He told me that same old story about a flood, when I was your age, Son. That’s why I was laughing. I was really laughing at me. And, Son, here’s the funny part. I went home and I told my daddy, just like you told me. You know what my dad said? My dad said, when he was a little boy—ha, ha—he went out there, and that crazy old man told him the same story. When your granddaddy was a little boy! Son, don’t let that old religious fanatic scare you. Go in the house, Son, and eat your supper.

“As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be.” (Matthew 24:37) “There shall come in the last days scoffers … saying, Where is the promise of his coming?” (2 Peter 3:3–4) You say, “Well, I don’t want to give my heart to Jesus; I want to save my life. You’re the one that’s going to lose it. I believe, when Noah put that last nail in the ark, it was probably the last thing he ever had. He went into the ark a pauper, but when he came out of the ark, he owned the whole world. “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” (Matthew 5:5)
