• In the Bible, all three were portrayed as having faith in God. Faith in God is one of just a few themes equally strong in both the Old and New Testaments.
  • You may want to edit out Ark. It was not Noah's last name. They didn't just 'have faith' they proved it by keeping the commandments of God.

      Noah, although he was righteous relative to his contemporaries, does not fit with the others on the basis of behaviour alone. He was the one who tended to become drunken after the flood and cursed his sons when they questioned his drunkenness. But, most of all, the commandments did not exist before Noah.

      True, but he didn't curse him for questioning his drunkenness. He was cursed for seeing him naked in his drunken state and telling his brothers. It also said when he awoke from his drunkenness he 'knew what his youngest son had done' Some interpret this to mean his youngest son sexually abused him while passed out. The commandments have existed since God taught them to Adam and Eve and commanded them to teach their children. True its difficult when your parents don't teach what they should, but they existed. Noah had faith and obeyed God's command to build an ark when it had never rained before! That's strong faith and obedience regardless what happened after. But you are right about him being a 'wine bibber' and his son being cursed. Even Prophets are human and sin. David's sin was recorded as well. I'm sure every Prophet sinned at some point in his life. It doesn't cancel out the great faith and obedience they exhibited. Consider Peter who had faith enough to actually walk on water, yet we remember him as the one who denied Christ 3 times at one of the most critical points in his life! They were all still men of great faith and obedience!

      "The commandments have existed since God taught them to Adam and Eve and commanded them to teach their children." Can you site a passage?

      I keep forgetting that you use a totally different Bible than other Christians.
  • They were being faithful to the ONE Single God.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      A "single" God? You are stepping on mud by mentioning an abstraction of a sequence.
  • It is all about faith in believing the promise is true. Hebrews chapter 11 focuses on the reason why faith gives substance to the things we hope for:
  • The purity of their faith. Prophets are not made, they are born.
    • mushroom
      Moses was something of a reluctant prophet: living in exile, he had to be shown the burning bush before he accepted God's lead. Noah "walked with God" and did not question his task. Jesus, being the son of God, didn't need to be convinced..
  • They each had exceptional faith and endurance (Hebrews 11).
  • *** (Acts 10:34, 35) At this Peter began to speak, and he said: “Now I truly understand that God is not partial, 35 but in every nation the man who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.
  • Hebrews 11: 24 - 29 By FAITH Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. By FAITH he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. Through FAITH he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them. By FAITH they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned. Hebrews 11:7 By FAITH Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by FAITH.. Where as Jesus coming and purpose was foreordained before the foundation of the world, (2 Tim 1:9). And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.” (Luke 2:40) 2.“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14) So the glory of Jesus was the glory of the only begotten Father, Jesus asked his Father to do this John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. Jesus was the image of the invisible God, and Jesus was without sin, and God describes the person you have to be for him to come to “But to this one I will look, To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word. (Isaiah 66:1 – 2). The mind of Jesus is described in Philippians 2: 3-13 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:" Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But "made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:" And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.For it is God which worketh IN YOU both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Hence, Jesus was here to do the "will of the Father," the FULLNESS of God dwelled in him, (Colossians 2:9). The fullness of God are mentioned in Isaiah these are also the seven spirits before the throne in revelations. 1)And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, 2) the spirit of wisdom 3)and understanding, 4)the spirit of counsel 5)and might, 6)the spirit of knowledge 7)and of the fear of the LORD; And the same is meant for you, this is the way the Father reconciles you to with, with Jesus Christ, and eventually reconciles everything to himself so that he is all and IN all. Days of Noah? Aleister Crowley 33rd degree freemason, satanist, practicer of Theosophy "The Devil' is, historically, the God of any people that one personally dislikes... This serpent, SATAN, is not the enemy of Man, but He who made Gods of our race, knowing Good and Evil; He bade 'Know Thyself!' and taught Initiation.

Madam Blavatsky Lucifer represents life, though, progress, civilization, liberty, independence. Lucifer is the Logos, the Serpent, the Savior. The world is not prepared yet to understand the philosophy of Occult Sciences - let them assure themselves first of all that there are beings in an invisible world, whether 'Spirits' of the dead or Elementals; and that there are hidden powers in man, which are capable of making a God of him on earth. Annie Besant Socialism is the ideal state, but it can never be achieved while man is so selfish. No philosophy, no religion, has ever brought so glad a message to the world as this good news of Atheism. Alice Bailey The Masonic movement... is the custodian of the law; it is the home of the Mysteries and the seat of initiation. It holds in its symbolism the ritual of Deity, and the way of salvation is pictorially preserved in its work. It is a far more occult organization than can be realised, and is intended to be the training school for the coming advanced occultists. In its ceremonials lie hid the wielding of the forces connected with the growth and life of the kingdoms of nature and the unfoldment of the divine aspects in man. There is no question, therefore, that the work to be done in familiarising the general public with the nature of the Mysteries is of paramount importance at this time. These Mysteries will be restored to outer expression through the medium of the Church and the Masonic Fraternity ... When the Great One comes with His disciples and initiates we shall have ... the restoration of the Mysteries and their exoteric presentation as a consequence of the first initiation.
  • Once again to proclaim the verdict: without faith it is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6)
  • These men,were all were faithful ,obedient servants Faultless Among His Contemporaries. The world in which Noah lived had become degenerate. During this period angels who left their original position and proper dwelling place had married women and produced offspring, “men of fame,” whipping up the violence filling the earth (Ge 6:1-4; Jude 6), until “every inclination of the thoughts of [man’s] heart was only bad all the time” and the earth became “ruined, because all flesh had ruined its way on the earth.” (Ge 6:5, 11, 12) But Noah avoided this corruption and is described by God’s Word as “a righteous man. He proved himself faultless among his contemporaries. Noah walked with the true God.” (Ge 6:8, 9) Noah could be spoken of as “faultless” because, unlike that ungodly world, he measured up fully to what God required of him.​—Compare Ge 6:22 Moses 1Did Moses learn from the practical training he received as a shepherd? Indeed he did! God’s Word says that Moses became “by far the meekest of all the men on the face of the earth.” (Num. 12:3) He had cultivated humility, which helped him to deal patiently with a variety of people and their difficult problems. (Ex. 18:26) Jesus Declared Righteous and Worthy. By his entire life course of integrity to God, including his sacrifice, Jesus Christ accomplished the “one act of justification” that proved him qualified to serve as God’s anointed King-Priest in heaven. (Ro 5:17, 18) By his resurrection from the dead to life as a heavenly Son of God, he was “declared righteous in spirit.” (1Ti 3:16) Heavenly creatures proclaimed him “worthy to receive the power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing,” as one who was both lionlike in behalf of justice and judgment and also lamblike in giving himself as a sacrifice for the saving of others. (Re 5:5-13) He had accomplished his primary purpose of sanctifying his Father’s name. (Mt 6:9; 22:36-38) This he did, not just by using that name, but by revealing the Person it represents, displaying his Father’s splendid qualities​—his love, wisdom, justice, and power—​enabling persons to know or experience what God’s name stands for. (Mt 11:27; Joh 1:14, 18; 17:6-12) And above all, he did it by upholding Jehovah’s universal sovereignty, showing that his own Kingdom government would be based solidly on that Supreme Source of authority. Therefore it could be said of him: “God is your throne forever.”​—Heb 1:8.
  • When the time of their suffering was full, God chose Moses to deliver the descendants of Jacob out of Egypt. In other words, the four hundred years from Noah to Abraham, which had been lost due to Abraham's mistake, was now made indemnity by his descendants, and a new dispensation of restoration was to start with them. For this mission, God chose Moses. If God, Jesus and the nation of Israel had been totally united into one there would have been hope for God's side to win over the Roman Empire at that time. If Jesus had attained that goal without being crucified on the cross, there would have been no talk about a Second Coming because no more revelation would be needed. The will of God and ideal of creation would have been consummated in his own time.
  • Noah was a righteous man who walked with God during a time when people were violent and immoral. He was a man who obeyed God and Did Just So. Hebrews 11 v 7. Moses was also a man who feared God and was obedient. He was a meek man and chose to serve God rather than life as an Egyptian Prince. Hebrews 11 v 24 - 29 Jesus was the Son of God. He loved his father Jehovah and whatever he did or said, was always to the glory of his father. He gave his life as a ransom in exchange for what Adam lost. - Romans 5 v 12 and 19.
  • Do you know that the Bible actually tells you the answer. I will save him because he cared enough to call on me by my name! Yes the Bible says there's going to be plenty of people that say Lord Lord didn't I do this and didn't I do that and I'll confess to them I don't know you you know why I don't know you because you never cared enough to call me by my name! The Bible makes it abundantly clear by the use of the tetragrammatin Yahweh Jehovah in the Old testament that God intended you to call him by his name and then they even had a contest in the Old testament what should we worship shall we worship the Lord or shall we worship Jehovah. We all know the story about Elijah and the two altars it's already been decided we're supposed to call God Jehovah Yahweh not generic Lord!
  • The sheer persistence of Jehovah God making sure that life on this earth will continue, regardless of disasters we might have, shows that the scripture "the earth will remain as the home of people" . And his plan about the resurrection , proved by Jesus and Lazarus, shows that all the people who have ever died will benefit. So our death, now, untimely or not, will not exclude us from the future benefits. Of the soon to be here...KINGDOM!
