The Door of The Ark and The Doors of Scripture

  1. 1. The Door of The Ark and the Doors of Scripture
  2. 2. The pre-Flood world was exceedingly wicked and filled with violence. Why Did God Send the Flood?
  3. 3. The Bible states that all flesh had corrupted its way on the earth.
  4. 4. God sent the global Flood to judge the evil world,
  5. 5. while preserving Noah’s family and every kind of land animal.
  6. 6. One of God’s specific instructions for Noah was to build a door in the side of the Ark. The Ark’s Door
  7. 7. Noah and his family entered this door to be saved from the Flood.
  8. 8. Everyone outside of the Ark perished.
  9. 9. God created a perfect world, but our first parents, Adam and Eve, chose to rebel against their Holy Creator. What is Wrong with This World?
  10. 10. Their sin brought suffering and death into creation
  11. 11. and since all people are descendants of Adam, all have inherited a sin nature set against God.
  12. 12. Furthermore, all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
  13. 13. We live in a fallen, sin-cursed world where men love darkness rather than light.
  14. 14. The Bible states that God will judge this wicked world once again, Will God Judge the World Again?
  15. 15. but the next time it will be by fire.
  16. 16. In fact, Jesus compared the days of His return to the days of Noah.
  17. 17. People were caught unaware by the judgment because they were so focused on the things of this world, such as eating, drinking, and marriage.
  18. 18. Similarly, the Apostle Peter prophesied that Skeptics would come in the last days,
  19. 19. and would mock the Biblical teachings of Creation, the Flood, and the coming Judgment.
  20. 20. We see these things happening in our day,
  21. 21. and God always keeps His promises—Judgment will come.
  22. 22. Noah’s family entered the Ark’s door to escape the physical destruction of the Flood. Another Door
  23. 23. God has provided another “door” to save people from the coming eternal Judgment.
  24. 24. Jesus Christ said, “I am the door of the sheep” (John 10:7).
  25. 25. In that culture the shepherd really was the door to the pen
  26. 26. —they would rest in the entryway, ensuring that the sheep would be kept safe.
  27. 27. Jesus, the Good Shepherd, is The Door through which we must enter to be saved from our sin.
  28. 28. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, became a man, lived a sinless life The Substitute
  29. 29. and then willingly died on the Cross as a substitute.
  30. 30. As man’s sin brought death, the Son of God died to redeem man from his sins.
  31. 31. Three days later, Jesus rose from the dead,
  32. 32. showing that He held power over death and demonstrating God’s acceptance of Christ’s payment for sin.
  33. 33. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
  34. 34. Since God is holy and just, He must judge sin. Who Needs to Be Saved?
  35. 35. Each of us deserves to face God’s justice because we have broken His Laws.
  36. 36. If you stop and examine your own heart, you will recognize times where you have lied, stolen, coveted
  37. 37. and failed to honour God as He deserves.
  38. 38. On our own each of us stands condemned to suffer eternally because of our rebellion
  39. 39. and we need someone to save us from God’s wrath.
  40. 40. We cannot earn God’s forgiveness as manmade religions teach, How Can I Go Through This Door?
  41. 41. —it is offered freely through the sacrificial death, burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  42. 42. We receive God’s forgiveness only through faith in what Christ has done.
  43. 43. This means that we repent of our sins, trusting in Jesus
  44. 44. and believing that He died for our sins and rose from the dead.
  45. 45. In faith, we acknowledge our guilt before God
  46. 46. and plead with our Creator to forgive us and save us from our sins.
  47. 47. “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
  48. 48. Have you placed your faith in Christ alone to save you from your sins? Have You Entered the Door?
  49. 49. If not, we urge you to turn from your sins (repent) and plead with God for His merciful forgiveness.
  50. 50. Enter the door of Salvation today.

  52. 52. TRUST AND OBEY
  53. 53. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word, What a glory He sheds on our way! While we do His good will, He abides with us still, and with all who will trust and obey. Chorus: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
  54. 54. Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies, But His smile quickly drives it away; Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear, Can abide while we trust and obey. Chorus: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
  55. 55. Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share, But our toil He doth richly repay; Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a Cross, But is blessed if we trust and obey. Chorus: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
  56. 56. But we never can prove the delights of His love Until all on the altar we lay; For the favour He shows, for the joy He bestows, Are for them who will trust and obey. Chorus: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
  57. 57. Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet, Or we’ll walk by His side in the way; What He says we will do, where He sends we will go; Never fear, only trust and obey. Chorus: Trust and obey, for there’s no other way To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
