A.) Noah’s Investment

B.)The People  

The real estate they had was not real.  It was covered with water.  Their money was worthless.  Noah went into the Ark a Minority But he came out an Majority! 

C.)Noah’s Reward and Noah’s Fortune! 

Noah gained it all! The whole world was his, and no one was there to dispute that fact. Matthew 5:5.

D.)The most important fortune   Hebrews 11:7

E.)The Ark was a picture of Christ!

There was only one door on the ark-There is only one way to Heaven, JESUS! Jesus is the door, and faith is the gang plank!

God shut the door! God sealed our salvation!  Ephesians 4:30

Genesis 7:1

 

“And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark;...”  God was already in the ark, and He said come in!  Noah and his family were not outside the ark hanging on pegs. Noah may have fallen down in the ark lots of times, but he never fell out of the ark. Security is not in a place but in a person!  You can today become an heir of righteousness!!!
