Follow the Prophet Noah

What can we learn from following the Prophet Noah?

Certainly no Bible story is more famous than Noah and the ark. It has been the subject of serious science, cartoons, plays, movies, and uncountable Sunday school lessons.

Noah was a good man from his youth. At the age of ten he received the priesthood at the hands of his grandfather Methuselah. And he was faithful his whole long life of 950 years. The Bible records some of his life on earth.

Modern revelation also tells things Noah did in the preexistence before this life. He was a valiant spirit named Gabriel.

He later appears as the Angel Gabriel to strengthen Daniel in vision and prayer. In the New Testament he announces to Zacharias and also to Mary the imminent birth of Jesus.

Living almost a thousand years may require some patience. Noah had to wait 450 years until his first son Japheth was born. Then another 42 years until Shem blessed their family. Ham must have seemed almost like a twin to Shem when he came only eight years later when his father was 500 years old.

All three boys were true to the faith, and so were called, “Sons of God.” They married women who were likewise faithful, and as a result they and their wives were saved on the ark. Unfortunately the daughters of the “Sons of God” married disbelievers who mocked the Lord and were known as “sons of men.” Apparently they all perished in the flood.

The scriptures record that a few others besides those in Noah’s ark escaped the flood. These believed and followed Noah. The Lord took them up to be with him as he did the city of Enoch.

Perhaps the most vital message Noah leaves us is don’t procrastinate. Follow the prophet when he speaks.

Noah gave the people of his day 120 years of warning. We know not what the future holds in today’s unstable society. But we are promised if we follow the words and example of the Lord’s prophet and prepare, we shall not fear.
