OPENING PRAYER: Father, please give me the grace to be among the people that will make it to heaven on the last day.
PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Who are the destiny manipulators? The leader should ask the members.
MEMORY VERSE: “And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; ” – 2 Peter 2:5
BIBLE TEXT: Genesis 6:1-8, Matthew 24:37-39 (KJV)
1 And it came to pass when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5 And 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.
6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
LESSON INTRODUCTION: In a corrupt and depraved era, Noah walked with God. The Scriptures made us to know that man’s wickedness on the earth became great and every inclination of the thoughts of man’s heart was only evil at all times (Genesis 6:5). That was why God in His wrath planned to wipe the unrepentant sinners off from the face of the earth (Genesis 6:6-7). However, because Noah loved God and believed His word, he found grace in the sight of God (Genesis 6:8).
LESSON AIM: To illustrate the times of Noah’s days of disobedience and flood and to compare it with the coming “Day of the Lord”.
TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to:
i. Explain what happened during Noah’s time.
ii. And to compare it with the second coming of Jesus Christ.
TEXT REVIEW: Genesis 6:1-8, Matthew 24:37-39
i. The bible states that iniquities were renowned and these things grieved God.
ii. God decided to destroy the world and He made a way of escape for everybody.
iii. But only eight people were saved. Jesus said this generation would experience the same.
TEACHING METHOD: The leader should use the teaching/lecture method.
TIME MANAGEMENT: Share the teaching time using the suggested time schedule.
LESSON OUTLINES: There are two outlines:
A: HOW MANY PEOPLE BELIEVED IN GOD?
Only a few people, eight in all, believed in God: Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives were the only eight who were saved. – 1 Peter 3:20
B: WHAT HAPPENED TO THOSE WHO DID NOT BELIEVE IN GOD?
God said to Noah in Genesis 7 to go into the ark with his whole family because He found him righteous in that generation. He also commanded him to take with him seven of every kind of a clean animal, a male and its female, and two of every kind of an unclean animal, a male and a female and also seven of every kind of a bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive upon the face of the earth. Noah did as God commanded and the door of the ark was shut. Heavy rain fell resulting in a great flood. Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out by the flood (Genesis 7:1-23).
ACTIVITY: What happened during Noah’s days?
SUMMARY: Please strive and make sure that you don’t miss heaven.
CONCLUSION: As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man (Matthew 24:37).
The day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night (1 Thessalonians 5:2). God has planned another day when He will judge the people of the world and that coming day of judgement will be more terrible than the judgement which came upon Noah’s generation.
