Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
John Wesley’s Commentary:
Noah being warned of things not seen as yet – Of the future deluge.
Moved with fear, prepared an ark, by which open testimony he condemned the world – Who neither believed nor feared.
Genesis 19:26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
Luke 17:32 Remember Lot’s wife.
(Don’t hanker after the things of this world.)
A blessing promised upon those who bless the followers of Jesus Christ …
Matthew 10:41-42 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
John Wesley’s Notes:
He that entertaineth a prophet-That is, a preacher of the Gospel: In the name of a prophet-That is, because he is such, shall share in his reward.
John Wesley’s Commentary:
v. 42. One of these little ones – The very least Christian. Mark 9:41.
Luke 10:16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
John 13:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

CHRISTIAN ZIONISM, HAGEE, CUFI, AND IDOLS
Proverbs 23:20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:
1 Peter 4:1-7 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
