Noah’s Year of Deliverance
|Event 1: Entering the Ark: What is Our Ark (“Chambers”)?
13 May 2011
We have, quite literally, two arks to enter, for the Scriptures speak of two very different arks, one a very practical refuge, a large ship built by Noah (Genesis 6:13-21) and the other a small chest built under Moses’ direction, designed to contained the stones of Yehuveh’s instructions (Deuteronomy 9:9; I Kings 8:9; 2 Chronicles 5:10).
Both arks serve the same purpose, both being associated with Yehuveh’s instruction and everlasting covenant: “With thee [Noah] will I establish My covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark.” “Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of Yehuveh your Elohim, that it may be there for a witness against thee.” Genesis 6:18; Deuteronomy 31:26.
The practical ark, as Noah built it, was to be a haven and means of deliverance for a people facing exceptionally threatening circumstances. In our time, Yehuveh provides similar shelter for every one of His children: “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, Yehuveh cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:20-21.
Thus Yehuveh’s promise for this time is very individual: “Yehuveh will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.” Isaiah 4:5.
Many with willing hearts will experience dramatic reversals and unexplained changes which will only begin to make sense as the events of this year unfold.
Likewise, our second ark, Yehuveh’s instructions, are to be our haven and deliverance from confusion, deception, vanity, and destructive life choices. His covenant, a binding union between Himself and those who choose to unite with Him, becomes a protective shield around these people.
Covenant-protection, and the defense it provides, is a very individual and family matter, not a national affair as when the nation of Israel made their exodus from Egypt. Individually, we must ask and understand: What is Yehuveh’s everlasting covenant with me?
In its simplest terms, the covenant contract which becomes our safety and salvation is Yehuveh’s offer and appeal: “As for Me, this is My covenant with them, saith Yehuveh; My spirit that is upon thee, and My words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith Yehuveh, from henceforth and for ever.” Isaiah 59:21.
Simplfied, Yehuveh’s everlasting covenant is this:
Do as I instruct you, and I’ll take care of you!
Meet with Me every Sabbath for further instructions!
In its simplest form Yehuveh’s everlasting covenant is a “marriage agreement” in which we choose to do as He instructs and He, in turn, protects us and provides for our every need.
We enter Yehuveh’s ark of safety and instruction when we make the choice to follow His instructions. This does not involve some great mystic action or secretive ritual. It is not, as Christianity would have us believe, something we are incapable of doing. To the contrary: It is a decision we can and must make for ourselves, a decision to accept His instruction and act on it.
