NOAH: A BABY OF PROMISE, A TYPE OF CHRIST – Sermon for Nov 30, 2016 – Genesis 5:28-29 (Adv MW1A)




Genesis 5:28–29
28 When Lamech had lived 182 years, he fathered a son 29 and called his name Noah, saying, “Out of the ground that the LORD has cursed, this one shall bring us relief from our work and from the painful toil of our hands.”
1 Peter 3:18–22
18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, 19 in which he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison, 20 because they formerly did not obey, when God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water. 21 Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22 who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to him.
Matthew 24:36–42
36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. 37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38 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, 39 and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. 42 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.
Psalm 29
            1       Ascribe to the LORD, O heavenly beings,
      ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
            2       Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
      worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness.
            3       The voice of the LORD is over the waters;
      the God of glory thunders,
      the LORD, over many waters.
            4       The voice of the LORD is powerful;
      the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
            5       The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars;
      the LORD breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
            6       He makes Lebanon to skip like a calf,
      and Sirion like a young wild ox.
            7       The voice of the LORD flashes forth flames of fire.
            8       The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness;
      the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
            9       The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth
      and strips the forests bare,
      and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
            10       The LORD sits enthroned over the flood;
      the LORD sits enthroned as king forever.
            11       May the LORD give strength to his people!
      May the LORD bless his people with peace!
