The Act of Obedience


Noah is said to have been OBEDIENT to do what God called him to do…. TO BUILD THE ARK.

Although it took him some 120 years to build it, Noah did finally complete it and the Ark actually received his family and all the animals and saved them from the flood.

NOAH did move in Fear or Reverence to the Word of God and went to work.  The reason he was fearful and had respect [he knew that what God had said would happen (the flood to kill people was coming) and he simply knew God would keep his word and the Flood was going to happen].


Nothing is said about Noah as to how he built the Ark or who funded his work and who helped him build.

The Bible says only he did it by FAITH.  Yet we know, Noah could not have done all that work by himself.

It was not possible that Noah could lift all those heavy timbers by himself.

SOMEONE HAD TO HELP HIM, but the Scriptures does not go into that detail.

Many think Noah’s sons helped him, yet the Scriptures do not elaborate that fact.


Can Faith alone [faith is a principal of believing God] build the Ark?

Does the Ark just appear and God built it?

Did Noah go out one morning and find the ark built?


The Scriptures tell us NOAH MOVED AND BUILT THE ARK.. in other words NOAH WENT TO WORK.

He had his carpenters tools and he put in the time and labor to actually build.  Faith drove him in HOPE that he would have it done before it rained.

If God told you to build an ark…..  could you build it by yourself only on a faith principal?

Do you believe that the Work would get done simply by believing God?

Of course, someone said… But how?  If nobody helped Noah did God build it himself?  NO.

Noah built it with some who did help him.  We do not know just how many people contributed funds, and how many took up the saw and hammer.

How many did go to the mountains and cut down the trees.  Who found the pitch and who fitted the timbers?

Who build the cages IN FAITH OF ANIMALS COMING IN…???


Who could even do this Work without help?

And do you think God who commanded Noah did command someone else to help work or even give?


Do you know the answer?

If you do please let me know because God told me [Prophet Ken Dewey] to build an Ark in the Desert.

He did tell me things were going to happen soon that would destroy all things as we know it and that Life would depend upon Obedience to build.


I have prayed, asked, looked, and even somewhat begged for help, and found a few people… but these few just by themselves along with me have not been able yet to do all.

The work lies before me and I alone cannot do it nor even can I understand how I can without a lot of help.

As I said, IF YOU KNOW THE ANSWER, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.  Am I totally wrong [as some have even said to my face] asking for Help and Money to build?

Just days ago I heard that 300 were coming to help by giving and working etc..  (See HKP article:  “Desert Zion and His 300 Men!

Am I wrong believing that?  Should I look for them [all three hundred people]…  To rise up?

Help me know what to do.  I need your help

I don’t know how old Noah really was, but is think he was old.  I am 75.  Did Noah have help in his old age?

“By faith [with confidence in God and His word] Noah, being warned by God about events not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his family. By this [act of obedience] he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith.” Hebrews 11:7.

The Act of Obedience — 1 Comment

  1. I believe it’s possible the Lord said to build in a desert. However could it be not the literal desert but desert of the heart?

    A desert can be described as a dry barren area of land especially one covered with sand that is characteristically desolate, waterless and without vegetation.

    Could it mean the Lord wants you to help others clear everything in their hearts till it’s back to dust so he can build in truth? For I believe calamity will indeed come, however the condition of ones heart will determine the survival of that person during the times of trial.

    I say this because when the Lord gives instructions to do anything, He will by himself provide. He will raise the help required himself. Think in line of when Solomon had to build the house of the Lord. God himself anointed those who will make it possible. I believe If this is what he wants, then, He will send all required help before you ask for it. He knows what you need before you even so for it.

    The King is a good and compassionate Father and will not instruct without making a way…easily.. for the job to be done.

    My thoughts.. Remain blessed
