Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“Take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them” (Gen 6:21).

God put in Noah a burden for the whole world – to save every living thing. We need to have a burden for souls to be saved and be made ready for New Jerusalem and Zion. Noah had to provide food for all the living creatures. The Lord gives spiritual food or revelations to those who have a burden for the salvation of the perishing.

“It shall be for thee, and for them.” When you eat, don’t forget you should feed others as well. And when you gather food for others, don’t forget that you need it too.

“Thus did Noah.” How much money, material and resources Noah must have needed! We do not read that he was very rich like Abraham or Job, and yet, when God gave him the burden to do the work, God provided his needs as well. The Lord not only provided for the construction of the ark, but also for the food needed for everyone. Noah was the first man to live by faith in this respect.

The Lord wants us to have faith for our spiritual needs as well as for all our material and physical needs; and also for those of others. “Without faith it is impossible to please Him” (Heb 11:6).
