Scandal

Genesis 9:20 And Noah began to be an husbandman (planter), and he planted a vineyard: 9:21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. 9:22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. 9:23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. 9:24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. 9:25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

Introduction

What happens when you have given over to a people who cannot give back to you in return, so in a moment of weakness yout find yourself in an undesirable disposition and those whom you would assume would cover you in weakness exposes your human frailty (physical weakness)

after you have labored for their:

1. Freedom

2. Protection

3. Covering

Yet there seem not to be an appreciation for your labor of love or the fact that you obeyed God concerning their well being in the process.

What if I suggested to you, the things that you are going through today are only because you uncovered what covers you. Now you have found yourself aborting your predestined God's plan for your life by your own personal choices.

What you have allowed to be your silent killer?

What has you in a cursed state?

1. Your Attitude

2. Your Behavior

3. Your Mouth

4. All the above

Body

The sin of Ham was not what he saw, The sin of Ham was what he said after he saw.

Ancient commentators suggest that Ham was guilty of more than what the Bible says. The Targum Onkelos has Ham gossiping about his father's drunken disgrace "in the street".

Scandal

How many times have our lives, our churches or our associations made it difficult for people seeking to see Jesus?

You will be judged according to the light you live and what you use to cover up will not defend you. your light will!!!

Ham's Decision had Consequences:

The enemy is on assignment to get you to live a life with no boundaries, a life where nothing is finished because of Bad Decisions, Gossip, Backbiting, etc.

Your choices create confusion!! The deeper the hole you get in, God gets us out, the greater the glory!! Let him crucify you and resurrection is on the way.
