In this sermon These are My Witnesses, we learn God always gives man a chance to repent before He brings judgment. He uses His witnesses for this purpose. Let us look at the witnesses in the days of Noah, before the flood. The first witness in the days of Noah and his generation, was Enoch. When Enoch walked this earth, he preached and warned of the coming judgment of God, on the ungodly. The Bible does not tell us how long Enoch preached and prophesied. When God was finished with Enoch as a witness, Enoch was raptured into Heaven. The second witness in the days of Noah, was Methuselah. The name, Methuselah means, “When he dies, the end will come.” This was the reason God allowed him to live longer than any other man on earth. God did not want to destroy the generation of Noah, He wanted to save them. God, in His extreme mercy, allowed Methuselah to live 969 years. Methuselah was a sign to his wicked generation. The people knew what his name meant, but they didn’t care. Every time the people looked at Methuselah, they were looking at a sign, a sign of coming judgment. The very year Methuselah died, the flood came. The flood came within 30 days, after his death. Before God sent the flood; however, He used the third messenger as a witness to the people. Noah was the third witness to his wicked generation. Noah was a preacher of righteousness. He began to preach and warn the people of God’s coming judgment. He preached for about 120 years to his wicked generation. His text and sermon was the same everyday, “Repent or perish.” The people would not listen to the witnesses of God. They were content in their pleasures of sin. They were content in destroying themselves. God felt that these three witnesses was enough, to that generation. The flood came and destroyed them all, except Noah and his family. Their end of the world had come. God came with ten thousands of His saints, and executed judgment. This was not a literal coming, but a coming in might and power, in the execution of judgment. [Read less]
