Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God.

Because salvation has come by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, all who believe in Jesus’ testimony and gospel are righteous by faith.  That same righteousness we often talk about that was credited to Abraham when in truth Noah was credited with the same righteousness by God.  Righteousness, since it is universally available to all who believe, is not the concern for an elect of the Lord, the Holy Spirit, and neither is the walk with God, for the Holy Spirit, as Jesus said, “…lives with you and will be in you.” Since the Holy Spirit is also God, then all disciples of Jesus who have been baptised by Jesus with the Holy Spirit all walk with Him in them.  You see, righteousness is by faith through grace, and it is a gift, as well as the Holy Spirit is a Gift from Jesus… but blamelessness is not a gift, but rather, it is that which we are responsible for.

You see, Abraham, the man of faith, was not blameless, for he lied about his wife Sarah twice and endangered Abimelech who thought Sarah was Abraham’s sister, for Abraham told him, “She is my sister.” In this Abraham would not have been blameless for Abimelech’s adultery had God not intervened.  God found Noah blameless before He spoke to Noah, but God had to say to Abraham, no, command him, “…be blameless.” For earlier Abraham had already lied to pharaoh about his wife and God inflicted serious diseases on pharaoh and his household.

As such, elect, your concern is never that which concerned Peter when he asked Jesus about John, saying, “What about him?” and it is not a matter of casting blame on others though it seems that way.  Rather, we are only raising up what has been written in its truth when the Holy Spirit first began to show us how the twelve and then the eleven had a habit of not listening to Jesus.  A habit we all indulge in, truly a sin common to all disciples of Christ.  If it was our concern to be asking after the Lord, “What about them?” then you will find your conversations with the Lord will be very short.

Rather, your concern, my concern, is not, “What about him?” but rather, it is, “What about me?”

We can see everywhere the sorry state of the denominationalists and the lack of knowledge about the words of the Lord Jesus.  Now, it is not about the elect of the Holy Spirit being more knowledgeable than others, more faithful, holier or more correct… that is an easy thing for us to personify and indeed in our youth and immaturity, we have all been guilty of this.  Now that you have matured sufficiently to be taught the way of the elect, our concern is and will always be blamelessness.  Blamelessness not in the sense of according blame to everybody else, but rather, having been shown the errors, the shortcomings and the humanness of others, even of the twelve’s, the eleven’s and Paul’s, you concern yourself with being blameless yourself.

This command of God to all men called by God, like Abraham was called, is universal: “I am God Almighty; walk before Me and be blameless.” But the quality of blamelessness found in Noah was without command, and as such, without need for judgment nor can it be judged.  For if you do something according to a command, you can be judged or graded according to how well you obeyed the command.  However, if you do that which is not commanded or you become that which is desired without being commanded, there can be no judgment, there can be no grading or for that matter, degrading.  You are, as it were, above judgment, for you are before you were commanded.

You see, righteousness was not accorded first to Noah, but to his uncle whom he never met, or rather, great granduncle (to the eighth generation), Abel, who made an offering that was looked on with favour by God and was accorded to him righteousness, for Jesus said of Abel, “…the blood of righteous Abel…” And the walk with God came from Noah’s great grandfather, for Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.

However, blamelessness is a first and an original of Noah’s and as such, all of us who believe God are righteous by that faith and all who seek to fellowship with God must walk with God.  So, as Noah was blameless, then all who are to be instruments of God’s wrath must be blameless.  For not every believer or disciple is used as an instrument that brings the fulfilment of God’s wrath.  Rather, most believers, if their faith was full, would be bringers of God’s healing and deliverance, for as Jesus has said, “And these signs will accompany those who believe:  In My Name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” And every person who walked with God would likewise be harmless.  For Enoch walked with God and God took him away.  Enoch’s closeness in his walk with God harmed no one and benefitted no one, only himself.

So you see, a believer benefits many when he is able to heal and drive out demons from those afflicted, and his faith also benefits him, for by his tongues he edifies himself and is able to drink poison and pick up serpents and be protected.  A man who walks with God harms no one and is himself the beneficiary.  But as for a blameless man… in all of scripture, there is only one man who has these words written about him:  Noah… blameless among the people of his time. In 2 Samuel 22.24, David may have said, “I have been blameless before Him and have kept myself from sin,” in his song, but I doubt very much if Christ would agree.  No, no man has ever been credited with blamelessness by God except Noah… and through him – the blameless man – God brought forth the wrath!  Through Christ – the Innocent, the Lamb of God slain before the creation of the world – God brought salvation… but through the blameless man, wrath!

You see, there was only one other creature that was credited with blamelessness, and that is that guardian cherub, as God said, “You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.” Satan alone from the beginning was blameless.  Indeed, had he not been wicked, had he no wickedness and no forsaking of God in him, that question he asked Eve would have been a blameless question – the question of an enquirer seeking to have the truth clarified – “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” However, it was the wickedness that was already in him that made his question evil… a question that would bring out of Eve not the truth, but a lie.  And that same wickedness in him would cause him to use the error, the lie, of Eve to twist it for his purposes, for he is the father of lies.  When Eve lied she spoke his language, and when Eve herself had within her the propensity to forsake God – that is, wickedness – then she became one in nature with Satan… a liar who desired to forsake God.

For by now (as an aside and an affront to those who are following us when they have no business to do so) you know, elect, there was a liar, a lying spirit, without wickedness, for in him was not the desire to forsake God but to fulfil God when he said, “I will go and be a lying spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,” when God held council to see who would volunteer to entice Ahab to his death.  There is a place where being a liar, a lying spirit, has the consent of God, for the Lord said, “You will succeed in enticing him.  Go and do it.” Now hopefully that would have thrown off any who are reading the Codus out of curiosity and not out of election.

Now, begin to understand why God said to Abraham, “…walk before Me and be blameless,” as his forefather was blameless and why the encouragement of Paul to his churches was never just only about being holy and pure, but…

  • …be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight.
  • …without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
  • …be pure and blameless until the day of Christ…
  • …so that you may become blameless and pure…
  • …holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed.
  • …that you will be blameless and holy in the presence…
  • …soul and body be kept blameless at the coming…
  • An elder must be blameless…
  • …he must be blameless—not overbearing…
  • And from Peter… make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with Him.

And finally, look at the final word on the 144,000 from the twelve tribes that follow Jesus in Revelation 14.1-5:  …they are blameless.

The apostle who really understood the true value, the true power – the fullness of grace that in its suffering is what allows the power and strength of our Lord to be made perfect in us – is the one who knew that it was his blamelessness that afforded him that blinding encounter with Christ and yet lived because his zeal for God by the letter of the law he was under made him blameless also amongst the people of his time.

So, concern yourselves, elect, with what the Holy Spirit is seeking in you as the knowers of God amongst the people of your time… beyond righteousness, holiness, piety and a deep walk with God… concern yourselves with this question:  “How can a man be blameless before God?”  Then you will truly be a Noah of God and a builder of His ark to save those He has purposed to spare from the coming wrath!
