Hello! I’m getting married in a month so no blogs will be happening for the next few weeks. Please feel free to come to the blog and see the show notes and verses each week though! Also, Susan would like to hear any questions you have. In the coming months, we will try to have an additional segment where we discuss and try to answers what other listeners leave for us. So if that’s you, make sure to leave a comment on the blog below.
Lot and Noah Comparison Before the Judgment
|Live among sinful people who are warned by God of judgment||Yes||Yes|
|Obediently executes God’s instructions||Yes, Convinces family, build’s ark for years, gathers animals||No, Tries to tell son in laws but his faith is not respected enough to be convincing. He himself hesitates with doubt|
|Loves God more than loves the world.||Yes, willingly leaves all he loves for the unknown of a floating zoo.||No, Loves his world so much he doesn’t want to leave and has to be forced. Begs to be able to go to another town rather than the mountains.|
|Has faith that saves.||Yes, Saves family||No, Faith waivers. Saves only daughters, even wife doubts and dies.|
|Survives a devastating judgement||Yes, by flood||Yes, by fire|
Continued Comparison of Noah and Lot After the Judgment
|New life, new place||Yes, prospers||Yes, but hides in fear|
|Sexually taken advantage of by children||Son Ham / grandson Canaan||Daughters|
|Become nations opposed to God’s principals and people||Canaan has Canaanites: Jebusites, Amorites, Hivites and eventually…Sodom||Moab (means from father) become Moabites
Ammon (means son of my people) become Ammonites. See the map in the show notes because the Moabites and Ammonites are people that David must defeat in 2 Samuel
