Jesus Christ said, “It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer.”

Grace is the Only Way for the Human Race

TEXT: Genesis 6:1-8

We live in a very pluralistic society. Many people believe that there are many ways to God; there are many paths to true happiness; and that all roads eventually lead to Heaven. However, my friends, the Bible tells us otherwise. Jesus Christ said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Jesus Christ is the one and only way to get to God, true happiness in this life, and eternal life in heaven.

This passage in Genesis takes us far back in the history of the world. Scholars tell us that the events described in this passage which we will talk about today happened 1,600 years after God created the earth. That is about 4,300 years ago. Our passage tells us that after God created the earth, men began to multiply greatly on the face of the earth — in other words, people had many children, and the population of the earth greatly increased. Then, the Bible tells us that something happened. It says that the “sons of God saw the daughters of men and took them wives of all which they chose.”

Scholars are divided on exactly who these sons of God are, but based on studies from the Word of God, we know that they are either fallen angels who intermarried with the human race or godly human beings from the line of Seth who intermarried with the daughters of the ungodly line of Cain. Either way, it was something that God was not pleased with, and it had a corrupting influence on the world at that time.

Because of man’s great sin during this time, God says that he is tired with man’s disobedience. There are three terrible consequences that occur because of man’s sin. Allow me to share with you these three consequences, and the only way that you and I can be saved from them.
