Are You Uncovered Or Covered

Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris

Genesis 9:19-28 KJV
(19) These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.
(20) And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
(21) And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
(22) And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
(23) And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
(24) And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
(25) And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
(26) And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
(27) God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
(28) And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.

Do you ever consider what it was like before a disaster comes? Noah probably was not happy before the flood or after the flood. Noah a preacher of righteousness/faith, knew God had promised him a future if he obeyed, yet those around him only seen an old man building a boat with his family. A boat that was taking a long time to build. People made fun of his boat, and his family. Never think what if Noah was right. The rain came and destroyed all outside the boat of safety. Now Noah waited for dry land to appear. It was 40 days of rain inside the ark and not until the seventh month did the ark rest on Mount Ararat. Noah planted a vineyard, made wine and got drunk. He had a period of time to think about getting drunk. As the grapes grew he must of thought of the day he could forget what had happened. Did he want to even consider what he saw and heard.

Being drunk has it cost. One thing if drunk enough you will not remember the party you had. Two if drunk one will not remember how you landed up where you awake from. Three there is always someone to tell at least a little of what happened. Ham saw the result of his fatherís weakness and had to tell someone. Maybe Ham could not believe his father would get that drunk, or never seen a drunk man. Maybe Ham had never consider his father being human with frailties. Whatever cause Ham to gossip about his father, only cause his brethren to cover up the problem by not looking at their father but placing a blanket over him. They were willing to cover their fatherís sin. Noah upon waking and hearing about Ham gossiping cursed his son Canaan saying he would be a servant to his brothers.

God covers our sin with the blood of Jesus. He does not glorify our sin in anyway, but covers it. The devil uncovers sin. The devil place is in hell and the fiery lake of fire. When he in his permit home, he only be able to torment those there in his habitation. Our sin by belief in Jesus is covered by His blood. The vail of blood that covers us, is our protection. Christ life paying the price for our transgressions. His life covering all our sin upon belief. There is no other payment but killing of Godís word for us to receive salvation. Every person that believes is covered. For the world crucified Jesus because He is the Word of God. There is not one person that as not misunderstood God and twisted at some point in their life to fit their need. There no one perfect. Yet believe gives us the hope of salvation. The eternal knowledge of knowing we are saved by grace and not by our works. God is so holy that he can not look upon our sin, He covered us before we sinned the first time, yet there has to come a place of receiving His work already done for us. One has to come to a place of repentance and feeling remorse for sin to understand the power of the cross of Jesus. We are doomed by the refusal to receive Godís covering. Noah other two sons received a covering because they gave a covering. Ham son would be punished for his fatherís transgression. Godís sin is cover by his Sonís transgression. Did God sin no but He made his creation imperfect with the ability to sin. Admitting our mistakes makes us not God. God admitting He created us that way, only makes Him God.

The other day I got in argument only to be able to declare I was right this time. Yet in my mind I was thinking I might not be right next time. God is right all the time. Man can not destroy Godís word, they may try but Godís word remains and is faithful and true. If God promises hope then hope is there. God gave man hope upon belief. Adam and Eve lost hope through unbelief of Godís word. They were cast out of the garden of Eden.

Dear Heavenly Father restore each of your children upon belief to the hope of eternal life through your Son Jesus. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Countdown To Thanksgiving 11 Days left: Thank God for the hope of salvation and blessing of His promises through His word.

Continual Scripture Study for Devotion:1 John 1:7-10 KJV
(7) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
(8) If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
(9) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(10) If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
