He Did as God Commanded
“A major storm is expected. Death and destruction will be suffered throughout the land.”
Suppose you were to hear these words on a radio broadcast. Suppose you had the only radio receiving set in the community. You alone knew of the coming disaster. How would you feel? What would you do? Probably you would think first of your family. You would warn them, “Come, we must try to save ourselves!” Then you would hurry to your neighbors’ homes, calling to them, “A storm is coming! Get ready for the storm!”
Suppose they would not listen. Suppose they said to you, “You are not an expert in matters of the weather. We will not get excited just because you come with some big story of a storm. We are having a feast. Go away. There has never been a storm like that here before. Why should we believe you?”
How rejected and defeated you would be! How sad to know that your efforts to help others were in vain. But if you were sure in your own heart you would do everything possible to save your family and yourself, wouldn’t you?
Events similar to the ones we have supposed were experienced in reality by Noah. The voice he heard did not come from a radio broadcast Noah heard the voice of God. We will discuss in this lesson the experiences of Noah. We will learn why the terrifying storm came upon the earth, what God said to Noah, and how Noah escaped with his life as flood waters swirled all about him.
