The Windows of Heaven

Genesis 7:11

(Genesis 7:11) In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

The 'windows of heaven' is an interesting phrase. God has used this phrase a number of times in the Scripture. In the text this morning it is used to describe the way that God poured out the rain upon the earth to bring about the flood. It is also used to describe God's desire to pour out blessings upon our lives in Malachi 3:10, "...Prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it". The picture we get is that God is looking down upon us through the 'windows of heaven' and every so often He opens them and sends us something we need. Sometimes it is judgment and sometimes it is blessings. This morning I want to focus on the blessings we receive when God opens the windows of heaven.

God Opened the Windows of Heaven andů

I. Sent Us a Savior.

II. Sent Us the Holy Spirit.

III. One Day He Will Send Back His Son.

What a wonderful God we serve. He opened the windows of heaven and sent us His Son to be our Savior, He sent us the Holy Spirit to convict us and comfort us, and one day He will open the windows and send His Son back for us! Will you be ready? Have you put your faith in His finished work on Calvary? With the heart man believeth and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Have you accepted Christ and made a public profession of your faith in Him? Why not come today?
