A Preacher of Righteousness…

Noah was a preacher of righteousness…

Scripture tells us this…

God told Noah something that He hadn’t really told anyone else…

That He was going to destroy the entire world with a flood…

At the time God told Noah this it had never rained…

Noah believed God…

Noah preached what God had told him – which He hadn’t told anyone else (so Noah had no support in this) – for one hundred and twenty years…

When the flood came the sum total of people who believed his message (apart from himself) was seven (eight including himself)…

He was a preacher of righteousness and through his obedience he condemned the world…

God was clearly pleased with Noah through this commendation which was given to him by scripture – by I believe the Apostle Paul (who I believe wrote Hebrews)…

How would we view Noah?

He preached for one hundred and twenty years and only seven other people believed his message…

But God had spoken to him…

He remained faithful…

He didn’t waver in unbelief – just like Abraham didn’t (who came after him)…

He believed God and he acted – he built – and he preached…

He “got on with it”…

Even though it appears that he “did it alone”…

I am not trying to say that each of us should be loners – not at all…

But I am trying to say that each of us should obey the Lord…

At the end of the day we each “stand and fall” before Him…

If He says to do something – we should do it before Him – in His Presence – knowing that we are standing before Him Alone…

No matter what response we get from people we are to be faithful to the heavenly vision – as the Apostle Paul was…

Even if we have to “go it alone” for periods of our lives…

I’ve found great consolation in the life of Noah from this perspective…

I “stand and fall” before the Lord Alone…

I am happy with this (I’m smiling as I type this)…

This is true contentment and this is the absence of the fear of man…

If anyone is to join me that’s between them and God…

I’m not pushing for it…

I’m content with “me and God” (I’m also content for “me, God and everyone else who will follow – as led by the Lord to follow” 🙂 – Thank You Jesus 🙂 – I feel the joy 🙂  )…

Yes, I’m a part of a local congregation, yes, I’m a part of a local prophetic intercessors group, yes, I have fellowship with everyone who comes across my path – I am open for all this – for anyone who wants to be surrendered to the Lord – but I’m “going on” with the Lord – wherever He’s calling me – and I’m not waiting for others to join me until I follow Him – and I have joy in this – the same joy which I believe Noah had as he was mocked about the preposterousness of God destroying the entire world with a flood…

We are each called to lead in our different ways…

Let’s lead as the Lord leads us…

Praise You Jesus… 🙂

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
