Summary: Based on God Calling Noah to Build the Ark
When God Closes the Door
In Genesis Chapter Six, God saw the Wickedness of mankind and it Grieved God in His Heart. He said that he would destroy mankind off the face of the earth. But, there was one family and one person who found Grace in the eyes of God. It was Noah and his family. Note a few things about this man called Noah;
-Noah did as the Lord Commanded him to do.
-Noah had Faith in what God was going to do.
-He Preached for 120 years without a single convert.
-He and his family were the only ones saved.
But, notice the last six words of Verse Sixteen of our Text Verses today; "AND THE LORD SHUT HIM IN". Let us notice some important points about that door today.
1. The Door is Open Right Now: (The Age of Grace) Revelation 3:20
2. The Door Could Close at Any Moment: (Two Ways)
[a]-Death: Hebrews 9:27
[b]-Rapture: Matthew 24:36 & 44
3. The Door is almost Closed Right Now: (Evil Today) Matthew 24:37
4. When the Door Closes, It would Not Re-Open: Matthew 25:1-12
Application: Have you come through the door? God awaits for you. The Door is open. Why not come through that door today.
