Because Noah heeded the spiritual warnings that were given to him by God, he and his family were protected. What spiritual warnings have you heard from modern-day prophets? What can you do to listen for and recognize these spiritual warning signs so that you are prepared for the unique challenges of our day?
4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
5 And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.
We also are blessed by spiritual early warning signals as a source of protection and direction in our lives. Recall how Noah was alerted by God of things not yet seen, and he “prepared [the] ark to the saving of his house”…
Spiritual warnings should lead to increasingly vigilant watching. You and I live in “a day of warning.” And because we have been and will be warned, we need to be, as the Apostle Paul admonished, “watching … with all perseverance.”
