Get Your House in Order
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.
We are living in days of chaos and disorder. Order, as referred to here, suggests a harmonious arrangement in proper condition. Paul described the days in which we now live in his second letter to Timothy. Men and women are lovers of themselves, covetous, boasters, unthankful, unholy. Many are without natural affection, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof (see 2 Timothy 3:1-5). As in the days of Noah, our houses (lives), are not in order.
There is an event on the horizon that will change the order of every man, woman and child. God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth” (Genesis 6:13). Why? Because, “God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart” (verses 5, 6).
God’s Word clearly warns us, “Get your house in order!” Once again, mankind is at the place where he has become an abomination in God’s eyes. In His great mercy, God gives us fair warning—space to repent. It is time for godly men and women to rise up like Noah, who was moved with fear at the warning from God of things to come. Noah had his house in order; he obeyed the Lord and escaped the judgment that came. Would you be like Noah? In this day of chaos, is your house in order?
