Genesis 6

God’s resolution to destroy mankind for his wickedness.

Those who truly repent of the sins they have committed will resolve, in the strength of God’s grace, to get rid of them from their life and even undo it. We mock God if we say we are sorry and then continue in it without changing our behavior.

In Genesis Six God says: “I will wipe off man from the earth,” as filth is wiped off from a place which should be clean and is thrown into the sewer, God decided to flush the earth and cleanse it.

But Noah found grace (Divine favor) in the sight of the Lord.

God speaks of man as His own creature even when He resolves upon his destruction; “Though I have created him, this shall not excuse him,” Isaiah 27:11. The Scripture, therefore, helps us to understand that if the God of the Holy Bible is not our ruler then He will be our destroyer.

The degenerate world rejected the holy influences of heaven.  Are we paying attention?  We better.

None are ruined by the justice of God but those who refuse to be reformed by the grace of God.
