Today, reply is on displaying accountability for Creation and preserving the universe as inseparable aspects of the divine goodness GOD provides to created beings and living creatures. While finite consciousness can conceive form and process for life experience that focuses on things carnal, material and social, created beings and living creatures can not depend on their own intellect and self-will (willpower) either to secure a permanent place as life companions to divinity, or to overcome the operations of sin without divine intervention. GOD must appear among the living as active presence who initiates and completes multiple sacred tasks that include atonement, forgiveness, ending mortality, rebirth, sanctification, resurrection, and executing the second death. It is written: Genesis 6: 5-8, King James Version (KJV): 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

If god is good why did he send millions to a watery grave?

even if they did bad things he could have shown them the error of their ways in a peaceful way being all powerful. yet this monster god everyone loves so much drowned them all. how can you all worship such a god?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 5: 17-21, KJV)

wandering vagabond”, mature Christian believers trust that, in addition to faith, holiness, longsuffering and lovingkindness, the goodness of immortal, incorruptible GOD also must display accountability, authority, consistency, impartiality, integrity, justice, mercy, and uncompromising wrath against sin. The operations of GOD to cleanse, heal, preserve and restore mankind are not constricted by the frameworks of time and space, or mechanical and natural law. Even so, there are multiple elements that appear relying on immutable divine laws, sacred principles, published proclamations, promise, prophecy, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Deitrick Haddon:

(1.) Ecclesiastes 9: 17-18, King James Version (KJV): 17 The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools. 18 Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good.

(2.) Ezekiel 18: 20-24, KJV: 20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. 21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. 22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. 23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord God: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? 24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.

(3.) Ezekiel 16: 49-50, KJV: 49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. 50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2YfMZ4_JQI.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Lord Of The Animals Noah And The Ark With Animals (The Lord Fulfilleth All His Words)

 

Today, reply is on human knowledge, the flood, and the operations of GOD to preserve Creation from the devastating spread of sin. The ability, knowledge, and grasp upon sacred law that was granted to Adam in the beginning was so great that mankind was fully equipped to have dominion and rule over the entire earth, and every living creature. The knowledge gained through the transgression of the pair only fitted them for struggle and survival. The fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” Religion and Spirituality public forum using the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information shared) posted the following:

 

How did Noah know of the species from the new world seeing the new world hadn’t been discovered yet?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. 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. And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him. And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood. (Genesis 7: 1-7, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, in agreement with the Scriptures, here are some of the points regarding Adam, Jesus, Noah and the flood that Christian believers continue to receive as part of the full revelation of GOD to mankind:

(1.) Neither angels nor mankind were created as “all-knowing”, as “knowing the future,” and as having fore-knowledge. The angels (who are neither immortal nor mortal, and whose duration is according to divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and sovereign will) do not acquire knowledge by discovery, gradual growth, and learning as do men; and the angels were endowed at their creation with the full measure of the knowledge they would use throughout their service to GOD.

(2.) Adam was created to exist as a companion to immortal, incorruptible divinity, and lived for nearly a full millennium (1,000 years) on the earth that did not have the present day problems of automobile gridlock, air and water pollution, disease, or sanitation and waste removal for plastic straws. The capacity of mind provided for the first male, Adam, was on a scale such that the man could name, recall, and recognize every animal presented to him by the Creator.

(3.) As a patriarch himself and the heir to the priesthood of Adam, Noah lived for hundreds of years, and proclaimed prophecy from GOD through the operations of the Holy Spirit (we also say, the Comforter; the Holy Ghost; the Spirit of Prophecy; the Spirit of Truth). Aspects of Noah’s knowledge had been handed down as inheritance and instruction through oral traditions; other elements, like the animals being drawn to the ark, were provided by the same Spirit that worked during Creation.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) The figure or type represented by Noah in the holy writings is that of “the second Adam,” one we also see applied to Jesus Christ. Adam and Noah both were commanded to be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. Jesus, however, established new life, rebirth, resurrection, and a new creation.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
