God wants faith to be our lifestyle. The way things are now is not the way things will end up. We’ve wasted too much of our lives on what’s going on in this world. What if you could know the future, how much would it change your life? It is your choice whether or not to be a partaker of the divine nature during this time.
The only answer for our people is spiritual renewal. Those who finally see things for what they really are, sense a longing for something greater. Faith is what leads us home. The question is: do you want to learn and live by the ways of God? Let us continue on as we look at the life of Noah.
7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
In the days of Noah there were huge problems, the most serious being that the Adamic race had fallen into the wickedness of race mixing (Genesis 6:1-4). God could no longer allow this to continue, therefore His judgment was imminent (Genesis 6:5-7). Yet how could God uphold His perfect justice and still perpetuate the race He created to love forever?
Noah (whose family had not been corrupted) found grace in the sight of Yahweh (Genesis 6:8-10). God then extended Noah an invitation into the unseen realm of faith. Through Noah, Yahweh would allow the Adamic race to continue on, even beyond the pouring out of His wrath (Genesis 6:11-14).
Noah became a man of great vision. God gave him the plans, dimensions, and would provide all the resources to build the ark (Genesis 6:15-21). Noah devoted his whole life to God (Genesis 6:22). The results of this project would not only be the solution for himself and his family, but for the future of the White race. God gave Noah everything he needed. All God wanted from Noah was his faith.
Noah heard God’s warning which pertained to the future and it seized his attention. It obviously wasn’t good news, but it was what Noah needed to hear. If we have faith, we want to hear what God has to say, whether it be good or bad. Noah listened to God and so can we, if we will make it a priority to get out of the noise.
Call it the news, call it living in the modern world, call it what you will – it’s noise. Of course it’s impossible to be in constant silence. Yet even in the midst of all the hustle and bustle, we must make the time to get alone with God each day. The Jews have figured out a way to render us powerless thru distractions, fear, and worry, keeping our minds occupied with other things – preventing us from listening for God.
We should speak to God in prayer each day. We should try spending at least 10 to 15 minutes a day clearing our minds of all the clutter we’ve accumulated in our minds, experiencing a time of calm refreshment – silence. Noah was listening for God or else he never would have heard Him.
10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
BY FAITH WE LEARN THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING STILL. Our awareness that He is God is lifted when we only hear sounds from His natural creation. The wind rustling through the leaves, the crickets, the birds, or the roaring of the ocean. This is creation’s symphony. There is peace and tranquility to be found hearing only what God has made. Be still and know that He is in control, and hear His voice. OUR MINDS NEED THIS DAILY RENEWAL.
Additionally, faith develops within us by hearing His Word – “So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” (Romans 10:17) “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4) The Word of God enriches our faith and gives us direction. Noah already had faith or else God would have never spoken to him. Yet when God spoke to him it gave Him further clarity and focus. If we are living by faith, God will inform us of what’s going on and what’s going to happen.
Like Noah, we should expect to hear God’s voice. It’s one thing to hear God and quite another to expect God to speak to you and actually be willing to act upon what He says – Noah “moved with fear.” The difference between just hearing the Word of God and actually doing something about it reveals the presence of faith. Noah expected God to speak to him because he was ready to move.
Most people only move because they have to. We move out of bed in the morning because we have to go to work or school. We move through traffic because the light turns green or someone behind us is honking their horn. But when it comes to faith, we move because we want to. Due to the nature of faith, there is usually no immediate result. Yet those who understand that their faith has an impact on the future, are ready to believe and are preparing for action.
“By faith” Noah saw the future. Within the warning that God spoke, Noah was able to comprehend “things not seen as yet.” Are you grasping the magnitude of this?! Within the unseen realm of faith is the potential of seeing the future – your future. Remember, “NOW FAITH is the substance of THINGS HOPED FOR, the evidence OF THINGS NOT SEEN” – faith is our window into the future.
Indeed, the future God told Noah about was bad for the world – but not for Noah and his family. Noah’s faith connected Him to God and God gave Noah the knowledge, ability, and resources to construct his own future. How did all of this happen? Simply by faith. “Ah that’s just a bunch of hogwash,” that’s probably what those were saying who wound up on the outside of the ark.
Though faith exists in the present, everything it involves is in the future. Remember God is the Ever-Present I AM and at the same time, the Eternal One – He see everything all at once. We may not have the ability to see everything all at once, but by faith we can be in tune and occupied with what is going to happen in the future, right now and everyday, until it comes to pass.
This is why He gives us His Word sometimes in sort of mysterious or cryptic language. God is not in the business of ‘drive by religion’ or spoon feeding. When we will slow down and take the time to meditate on what He has to say, our spirit begins to process it in our minds and our faith begins to expand and grow within us. Scripture comes to life, not only making us more intelligent, but giving us a divine foresight into the future reality that God has in store for those who trust in Him.
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
One who lives by faith may start off small, but he will end up doing big things for God. Though every Israelite has been dealt “the measure of faith,” it is our “reasonable service” to live by it. How do we begin? We realize that the only purpose of our lives is to be pleasing to God. We were not given these “bodies” just for our pleasure, but to be offered for His glory. The main reason Noah found “grace” was because his and his families’ bodies were “holy and acceptable to God” – they had not race mixed.
Yet it does not stop there: Noah gave God his “mind.” That’s the reason Noah moved with fear when He heard the Word of God. His mind wasn’t filled so much with the world that it kept him from seeing the future by faith. If one is being “conformed to this world” he has very little or no desire to live by faith. He think he knows best, he wants to make his own way without needing to trust God. He has no interest in the invisible realm or knowing the future, because his affections are set on the present, material world. He is in dire need of the type of conversion Christ spoke of:
1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
To become “greatest” in this world, you’ve got to be slick, charming, calculating, ‘a self-made man’ – underhanded. To be “greatest in the kingdom of heaven” is the total opposite of that. What we need is to “be converted,” or changed back – the reNEWing of our minds that can only take place when we “become as a little child.”
Being conformed to this world means we’ve lost something, we gave something up or had something taken from us; we are no longer as a little child. We rely upon logic and reason, we worry, we are easily offended, we are quick to anger – we don’t want to spend time with our Father. We become more self conscious and self-aware, while less aware of our Him.
This “renewing of our mind,” is making our minds new like a little child again in relation to God. A child’s mind is new, it’s fresh, it’s untainted by the world. IT IS A MIND THAT IS FREE, THAT AUTOMATICALLY BELIEVES IN HIS FATHER. It is a naturally humble mind that is willing to listen, learn, and follow.
Children don’t normally worry, they naturally dream, imagine, and see life in a positive way. Children don’t feel the need to spend time trying to figure out how their parents are going to accomplish something for their good, they just enjoy it when it arrives. The more we learn of God’s ways, the more we want to depend on Him for everything. The world may call it a ‘crutch,’ other Christians might even call it being shallow, but the Bible calls it child-like faith and God loves it.
When we’re conformed to this world, we’re always taking matters into our own hands rather than taking them to our Father. Those with faith learn to leave things in God’s hands because He is the only One Who can make the difference.
JudeaChristianity for the most part is a group of systems that seek to take everything out of God’s hands and put it in the hands of men, and look where it’s gotten us. Yet the bottom line is we need for God to transform our race and the key is to humble ourselves as little children:
II CHRONICLES 7:14
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Over and over, Scripture repeats the same theme throughout to our people Israel, through all these centuries, and in so many situations – HUMBLE YOURSELVES BY HAVING FAITH IN GOD.
When our minds are renewed like children, we don’t think we are more than what we are. It should no longer be about my rights, my abilities, my education… my way. This type of selfish attitude exposes one’s conformity to the world.
Our Father’s “perfect” will is always for our “good”, and it’s always “acceptable” to our spirit within – here lies true fulfillment, happiness, and joy. The only way to fully acheive His will is through living by faith. His perfect will for our lives is the future destiny He has planned for us, revealed through our desires and realized by us through faith. This is yet another way to understand how living by faith shows us the future, even if we don’t realize it until it all comes to pass.
THEREFORE ONLY ONE WHO HUMBLES HIMSELF CAN LIVE BY FAITH. For the essence of faith is confidence in God Who lives within you, while having no confidence in your flesh. We need the manifold “mercies of God” at all times along with the “grace” of God. The mercies of God involve His Divine protection. This is exactly what God did in Noah’s situation. Noah was a humble man because He listened to God and by faith, he and his family were the only souls who ended up in the ark.
We must no longer neglect and ignore the unseen realm of faith. When we become racially aware, it’s easy to become irritated by the world around us. Yet God did not give us the knowledge of the truth to create further stress in our lives, for it is to be the foundation of our faith.
Rather than letting hate take control, recognize the more excellent way to deal with this world through Noah’s example. For Noah “condemned the world” through building his family’s future by faith. For when God’s judgement came, the ark was what protected and raised them above all the death and destruction. For those who put their trust in God, the very worst of times this world will ever see, can become the best of times unto the glory of God. The future of the whole White race was made certain from what God accomplished through one man’s faith.
