Noah Pleases God

But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. 10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.

(Genesis 6:8-10 NIV)

Who Are Four Women With The Great Flood?

Every successful man has supportive women behind them. I thought that if without his wife and children that Noah could not finish work. Of course, they were saved because of Noah's righteousness but God also gave a wife's Noah watching her husband worked and ready help him anything he needs in the work for God. The four women in the Noel family certainly helped him as much as there could.

There are many famous women, many have honored and praised but there are also many the meek women who quietly work in sacrifice, endure a hard time for the family and their nation.

Behind the success of a man is always the silhouette of a woman. Evangelist Billy Graham, a confidant to presidents and preacher who converted millions to Christianity, wife of Pastor Billy Graham, Ruth Bell Graham, she does not preach it, she just simply lived it. In the great of the flood, Noah's wife and his three daughters-in-law are four women who accompanied him to complete the big ark and were saved.

So God said to Noah, I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high.
‭‭(Genesis‬ ‭6:13-15‬ ‭NIV‬‬)

Noah, A Preacher of Righteousness

The Flood Came on The Earth

For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits.

(Genesis 7:17-20 NIV)

What Are Challenges There for Four Unnamed Women?

The Lord is sorrowful and angry when He sees the wicked and sinful, and corrupt in the earth. He wants to destroy mankind off the ground with the continental water. But God sees a righteous man, Noah. Noah had a wife and three sons. The names of his sons are Sh em, Ham, and Jephthah. And every one of them has a wife. So the family of Noah had eight. Now God wants Noah to do something strange. He told him to build a big ark. This vessel is very large, but looks like a big and long box. God said, 'Make three floors, and divide into many rooms.' These rooms were used as shelter for Noah and his family, for animals, and for food for both humans and animals.He called him to build a ship of three hundred yards in length, fifty cubits wide, thirty feet in height.
It is hard work, Noah have to make the ark is too large for the Lord. Every one are peaceful, ít is not rain, while everyone around the fun enjoys life, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage. Noah, his three sons, his wife, and three daughters-in-law had to give up all their desires, to play in their lives, to go to the forest, worked day and night, to build an ark that was too large for Noah and his families strength are a little. I am the wife of the evangelist, my children are children of a preacher, so I sympathize and understand the difficulties of the four women in Noah families.

In the midst of working hard, it is just as good to announce the good news that God will save them if they renounce sin, repent on the ship to be saved. Did they respond to his message? The Bible says that the people of that time are for in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. (Matthew 24:38, 39) People have not seen rain or storm, nor do they believe in Noah's preaching. While they were joking, enjoying, partying, marrying the Bible, they were probably tired of Noah's warnings and preaching.

Being a wife and a daughter in law of a righteous man, "the teacher of righteousness" (2 Pet. 2: 5), is surely subject to many sacrifices, surely mocked by his people, that he is living differently. But these four women quietly endured obeyed their husbands as obedient to the Lord, worked for the Lord, and served their husbands, to build ships according to the word of the Lord.
Time to build the ship too long, work too hard, have to lower the old trees, to cut them out, to worry about finding the glue, making nails to shut up ... oh! How many hard works! At times these four women feel exhausted, waiting for the promise of God weary, the mockery of people around it more and more. At times the four weak women fainted, wanting to retreat, but by the strength of God-given, they stood firmly, persisted, worked and worked, hid their tears in their hearts, persevered in prayer and hold the faith.

Noah And His Families Came Out of The Ark

So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives. All the animals and all the creatures that move along the ground and all the birds everything that moves on land—came out of the ark, one kind after another.

Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it.

(Genesis 8:18-22 NIV)

Four Unnamed Women Went Out to Worship The Lord

Then the ark was completed, with the blessing of God. Noah fulfilled the commandment of the Lord, and his family was saved from the waters of the continent, with each animal, one pair in a pair, one in the ship and rescued. While all mankind, every animal and every things are cut off from the earth. So Noah went out, and his sons and his wife and his son's wife with him.
After the great flood, Noah and his family built an altar to the Lord and worshiped Him. Every animal, every creeping thing, every bird, and whatever creeps on the earth, according to their families, when out to the ark.
Who is behind Noah's great victory? Who is helping him fulfill God's responsibility? Contemporaries are four silent, unnamed women, recorded in the story of Noah.I thought that if without his wife and children Noah could not finish work. Of course, they were saved because of Noah's righteousness, God also gave a wife's Noah watching her husband worked could not any help him. The four women in the Noah family certainly helped him as much as there could. Family is essential for a successful person.
Today, the great commandment of the Lord is to go to the whole world to preach the gospel to all, and warn that the coming of Jesus is near (Matthew 28: 19-20) “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” The command is urgent, the Bible reveals that the end is predetermined and God has set a concrete time for the event.
No one knows about that day or hour, including the angels in heaven and the Son, but only the Father knows. Let be wake up and watchful, for you know not the time appointed. The righteous preachers are called to go so God needs women like four women in the story of the Great Flood. The women quietly, obediently, sacrificed, endured trials, difficulties in the world filled with sins, and people are also living unbelief, brutality, and corruption is like Noah's day.
These women, themselves called or will help the righteous to accomplish the great command of the Lord. Certainly, that woman will save herself and her family and receive the glorious reward of Jesus' return. “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done." (Revelation 22:12) I wish God use me as an unnamed woman for the Kingdom of God. I hope my articles interest you, inspire you and helps of your life What is on your mind?
