The Noahic Covenant
Pastor Scott Suskovic
I. One Sided vs. Two Sided Promises
II. Genesis 6 – 9
Now the LORD observed the extent of the people’s wickedness, and he saw that all their thoughts were consistently and totally evil. So the LORD was sorry he had ever made them. It broke his heart
And when the Lord smelled the pleasing odor, the Lord said in his heart, “I will never again curse the ground because of humankind
I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood. . .This is the sign of the covenant. . .I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you. . .I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature on the earth.
III. The Noahic Covenant
No more let sins and sorrows grow, nor thorns infest the ground. He comes to make His blessings flow far as the curse is found.
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree.”
