“Deliberately entering into this Loving Covenant Grace-Faith Relationship with God is a must if you are to be part of the visible Remnant who are going to build the Ark for the Time of the End.”
Chapter 18, Page 181 –
Look – yes, in that Bible that you keep always with you when we talk – look at Hebrews 11:7. Now notice how the verse begins. “By faith, Noah being warned by God about . . .” and it goes on with the details. But did you see how it began? The building of the Ark began – by Faith.
Where did that Faith come from? Let me suggest to you that that Faith comes from the deliberate mind-set of Noah – or Elijah or David or any Bible member of the Visible Remnant that you want to name. Read with me. Go ahead. Open your Bible and read it for yourself. Yes, I know that you know it, but read it again. Nothing is so powerful as reading Scripture. Deuteronomy 6:5 says, “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”
Noah’s Ark – and the Ark that the Visible Remnant must build – begins with a deliberate mind-set to enter into a Covenant Grace-Faith Relationship of Love with God.
Noah responded to God’s Love with a deliberate and intense love for the Lord that involved every fiber of his being. Out of this shared love grew the Covenant Grace-Faith Relationship that Noah shared with God. Therefore, Noah talked with God – just like you talk with someone with whom you are deeply in love and with whom you share a relationship.
The Visible Remnant must love the Lord their God just as much, just as intensely, just as deliberately – in order to begin building their Ark.
Personal question: Are you talking to God? Are you listening when He talks to you? Do you love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, all your strength, and with all your mind? Deliberately entering into this Loving Covenant Grace-Faith Relationship with God is a must if you are to be a part of the Visible Remnant who are going to build the Ark for the Time of the End.
