Today we had another near full house with my Living Waters church body, as we came together corporately to praise, worship, and celebrate our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
Our Lead Pastor Bob continued his message series titled “The Days Of Noah Have Come” – based mostly on Scripture from Genesis 6, 7, and 8. He continued his ongoing theme on types and shadows as well – a theme that our Worship Pastor Ben introduced to us in a sermon last June (which I continued in a few of my sermons since then).
I never heard of types and shadows before last June, and now I’ve been studying them almost nonstop since then.
The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down, and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
(Genesis 8:3-4 NIV)
So Noah is a type of Jesus Christ. The ark is a type of church. The single door of the ark is a type of Jesus Christ (“I am the door.”). The 17TH day of the 7TH month (Nisan) is a type of a Glorious day ! (It’s also the day that Christ is risen.)
Yesterday (my day of rest) I spent much of the day in God’s Word sitting in front of my desktop computer finishing the manuscript of my next sermon that I hope to preach titled “Church & State”. It’s all about the importance of being a part of – and playing an active role in – a church body. I’ll share a portion of my sermon on my next “Sunday Scripture”.
