Was there a speciality in the ark and why should we learn about this ark?
7 The Lord then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation. 2 Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and one pair of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate, 3 and also seven pairs of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth.4 Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”
5 And Noah did all that the Lord commanded him
We find that God said Noah to enter into the ark.
In Gen 6:14
Make yourself an ark of gopher wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it with pitch inside and outside. This is how you are to make it: the ark will be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. You are to make a roof, finishing the sides of the ark to within 18 inches of the roof , you are to put a door in the side of the ark. Make it with lower, middle and upper decks.
God had a precise way in making of the ark. God wanted Noah to do as God had instructed. To build an ark was not an easy thing.
For people it would have looked like foolishness, for some it would have looked like waste of resources, for some it would have been a joke but for Noah it was life changing experience, test of faith, a step of righteousness.
To make an ark with such huge dimensions was not an easy thing and God said Noah that He is going to destroy all flesh and this was not an easy statement to accept.
But Noah believed in that statement and. Built an ark.
Gen 6:22 – And Noah did this he did everything that God had commanded him.
Then LORD said to Noah to enter the ark.
So after Noah did everything then LORD said to enter the ark.
Now let us get into the ark in the ark there was no silence, there was no neatness.
I don’t think Monkeys flushed the bathroom after they used it, I don’t know whether the animals were in silence.
Today many say they want a well ordered, organised church.
Everyone want everything to be in place. They say how can they talk like this when they go to church.
I want to tell this there is nothing called a perfect church.
We all are different some are tall, some are short, some are fast and some are slow, some are huge and while some are small.
Every member in the church is not as other and there’s will be differences but even in all the differences, do not leave the ark because outside the ark there is only smell of death and I the same way there might be confusion in the church, there might be people who wil not be spiritual.
Look what the verse says in Gen 7:2 – take clean and unclean animals as well.
So in the ark there were clean and unclean animals as well.
Church no matter what happens don’t leave the ark, the ark might be messy, might be chaos there might not be a silence, there might not be order bit as long as you are in the ark you are safe. The moment you go outside the ark you are killed and only the smell of death takes over.
As long as we are in the Church and in our faith no matter what happens do not leave or back slide because outside it might look nice but don’t forget you do not have place there. It only leads to death.
The animAls were all placed in different floors but in ark everyone were equal it’s only because of Noah’s righteousness all the animals were saved N the same way we are all saved by the righteousness of Jesus and not because of our cleanliness or uncleanness.
