He commanded our forefathers to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands. (Psalms 78:5–7, NIV 1984)
My Musings – Our forefathers taught their children, so that they would know the gospel and that they would in turn teach it to generations yet to be born. Take a look at just about any poll, on religion in general and Christianity in particular, and it is quite obvious that there has been a progressive erosion in knowing the truth about God and trusting in God. The correlation between the decline in these statistics and the increase in violence, divisiveness and downright evil is hard to dismiss. Before much more time passes, we may be witnesses to “as it was in the days of Noah.” Many would argue that the “ark” is almost ready to take on passengers. Jesus said that it would be a generation that would not pass away, meaning that when it comes there will not be a next generation to teach.
My Advice – Noah continued to warn others even as he made preparations for the ark. We should follow suit and warn what could very well be the omega generation.
