Dear Partner, What does the New Year hold for us? Most of us have those thoughts around this time of year. There will be opportunities, and if it is like most years, there will be challenges. There will be very unexpected events, too; some in the form of setbacks, but I believe the Lord will also bring extraordinary opportunities our way if we ask Him to, and if we act upon them when they come. Sometimes I run into those who are discouraged because the Lord has not returned yet. I do my best to encourage them by reminding them I believe the Lord will bring that His timing is best. As a friend of extraordinary opportunities our mine is fond of saying, The Lord has put me on the committee for preparing way if we ask Him to, and if we people for His returnnot the arrange- act upon them when they come. ments committee! I agree with that statement, and I actually thank the Lord that Hes postponed His return so even more people will be saved! I always receive negative mail when I say something like that. They write, Dont you realize that with that philosophy the Lord would never return? No, that never occurs to me, and Ill tell you why. For one thing, mankind will eventually mess things up so badly that it will be difficult to sustain life. The nuclear arms race is heating up again, and some madman will use nuclear weapons. Besides, mankind has become so evil that one of these days the Lord must say, Thats enough! and He will come! But whatever the future holds, I dont believe we have much longer to preach the Word. 3ABN is pledging to you and to the Lord to pull out all the stops and proclaim the truth even more strongly than ever before! Thank you for joining with us. Your prayers and support keep us going. Keep on Keeping on With Jesus,
Jim Gilley, 3ABN president

new source of light will brighten the midnight sky on New Years Eve, as 3ABNs Dare to Dream Network begins shining the light of Gods Word on North Americas biggest cities!

Yvonne explains. Aaron Chancy is on fire for the Lord, and the fact that he speaks from experience goes a long way in reaching our target audience. They need hope, and they need to see someone who is excited about life!
Dr. Yvonne Lewis says shes excited about the Seventh-day Adventist Churchs new initiative, Mission to the Cities. The Lord is laying the burden on those of us who work in media ministry to reach the inner cities, and were excited to join with the church in this tremendous effort. Surely, the Lord is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9.

Lighting the Cities


Dream into existence? Simply, it was the cries of Gods children. There are many specific challenges inner city residents face, says Dr. Yvonne Lewis, general manager of the fledgling network, so weve designed specific programming with them in mind. We see the erosion of the family unit, and that single parents are raising most of the children in the cities. We see large numbers of ex-offenders who struggle to re-enter society while carrying the scars of their years of

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Matthew 5:1415 try our best to bring them a better way to liveand thats why God brought Dare to Dream Network into existence! Innovative Programming Perhaps the most difficult challenge is how to reach a diverse audience with programming that makes a difference; but after much prayer, Yvonne says Dare to Dream will begin with the family. Making It Work is the first program weve produced with this Were deliberately seeking young hosts for our Dare to Dream programs, she continues. Minorities face tremendous challenges, and they need to see others whose lives have been dramatically changed by the Lord. Well talk with exoffenders whove gained victory over their problems and addictions; well also give them the tools they need to successfully re-enter societythings like how to find a job when they get out, and who their Ultimate Resource is! We believe

based tools to strengthen parents and connect them to a loving God who can solve their problems. Another great challenge comes with trying to help the millions of ex-offenders, who after spending time behind bars, struggle to become integrated in society. Dare to Dreams solution is a new program called The New Journey. Its important to have someone they can relate to, so we chose a host who is an ex-offender himself,

that when they find hope in Jesus, theyll seek out other ex-offenders and share what happens when the Lord takes control of their lives. Poverty is demeaning, and the mental stress about finances can

completely overwhelm even the strongest person. Dare to Dream addresses financial problems with a new series, Take It to the Bank, hosted by Cordell Thomas, MBA. This program addresses poverty and debt and provides real tools to rise above them, Yvonne says. Cordell will teach budgeting, tithing, and how to take control of our finances, using biblical principles for money management. Sexual purity is a topic rarely addressed in todays society, but Dare to Dream is not afraid to deal with it in a program called Pure Choices. We wont be shying away from difficult topics, Yvonne states. Instead, well be dealing with some pretty sensitive issues in a frank but tasteful way. This program features a live audience of young people interacting with a panel of pastors and special guests, hosted by Pastor

Dare to Dream will also use the power of music to lift viewers spirits in praise to God. Magnify Him is the flagship music program and will feature interviews and two songs from each artist, giving viewers a glimpse into their ministry. I have the privilege of co-hosting this program with a wonder-

ented health lecturer, Parris Carter SoBrian, and will feature manon-the-street type dialogue with community members as they discuss their health issues. Our topics will range from chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes to obesity, and well also address nutritional concerns, like artificial sweeteners, Yvonne adds. Parris

Proper nutrition and food preparation are also important, and Dare to Dream will seek to educate those whose eating habits have rarely gotten past processed and fat-laden foods. A Taste of Paradise is structured in a very different way, Yvonne explains, because the first half of the program focuses on raw food preparation, and the second half features cooked food and nutritional tips. Evita Tezeno and Brenda Kemp are from Dallas, Texas, and Evita will draw from her experience as a vegan chef to come up with some amazing ideas for raw food. In the second half of the program well work with Nyse Collins, an international health educator and lecturer who has appeared many times on 3ABN. This program is fun and informative, and the recipes are yummy! she adds.

If every 3ABN World reader who has cable writes a note on their cable bill each month, saying, Please add Dare to Dream to your lineup, the results would be a tremendous boost! It costs nothing to do this, she adds, and the Lord has promised to bless our efforts to further the gospel. Dare to Dream posters are available for free, and we encourage you to put them up on church bulletin boards and other prominent locations, such as your place of business. Let them know theres a new network, and how they can get it.

Tears came to my eyes immediately, because I was so grateful that the Lord used me to draw someone to Him. In fact, I couldnt stop crying for a long time; it was such a humbling experience for me. I believe Dare to Dream will bring many thousands, if not millions, to the Lord. I sense His hand and His power in this effort! But we cannot do this alone. This is something we all have to link arms and be serious about. Its our home mission field, and if we dont do it, who will?

in 3ABNs ministry through the years, she continues. Im confident that the Holy Spirit will impress them, but meanwhile, well continue to step out in faith. Just as the waters of the Jordan River parted when the priests stepped into it, God will swing the doors of cable companies wide open for this network. No one else is focusing on the inner city with the gospel and tools for living. Therefore, there will be a real demand for what we offer. God is calling us to do this for Him, and by His grace, it will be done!

Mysterious Ways

Am I the only one who can tune in 3ABN television? she asked, adding that shed been watching us for the last 10 years. Well, she sounded a little agitated, and since I couldnt tell by the tone of her voice exactly what

she was feeling, I asked if she was upset about it. Oh no! she exclaimed, Im just wondering why God thinks Im the only one in this whole building who needs to hear about Him! We laughed, and then and I told her Id ask our engineers about it. They had no explanation, so we decided she should just continue enjoying the programming, and that someday shed find out what God had in mind. The Mountain Mystery That brings to mind a story about one of our early affiliate stations. Since FM radio transmits a line-of-sight signal, only those who can see the tower can receive ita few trees notwithstanding. However, if the signal hits a mountain or tall building, it is blocked, and no one on the other side of that obstruction can hear the broadcast. This particular affiliate was situated in a valley, but the station kept hearing from people living around the side of the mountain who were enjoying the broadcast! I remember Jim Morris, our operations manager at the time, saying, That just shows that this message

is going to go where God wants it to go! The Mystery of the Driveway Then theres the man who suffered from agoraphobiaa fear of open spaces and crowded places. He rarely left his home, where he felt safe, and the best he could do was drive around late at night and listen to the radio. As God would have it, one night he drove into an area where he picked up a few seconds of a signal from one of our affiliates; although he only heard a few words, they were powerful, so he glanced at the frequency. Later, while sitting in his driveway, he tuned in the frequency again and discovered that he could listen to the stationeven though he lives quite a ways outside the coverage area! Hes still listening, and the Holy Spirit is teaching and comforting him! Mysterious Timing Just the other day I told someone about an e-mail I received from a woman who tunes in 3ABN Radio when she has trouble sleeping.

That doesnt sound like a praise report if it puts her to sleep! they laughed, but thats not how we look at it. What could be more soothing than to fall asleep hearing about Jesus? In fact, many of our listeners tell us they leave 3ABN Radio on all night so that if they wake up theyll hear something comforting, instead of lying awake and fretting about not being able to sleep. They also tell us that they often mysteriously wake up just in time to hear something they need to help them through a difficult situation, or to get the answer to a Bible question theyve struggled with. Weve all heard the first lines of William Cowpers old hymn, God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform. Over the centuries, those words may have become a worn-out clich to some, but to us theyre an immense reassurance that God will literally move mountains to reach those who desperately search for truth! Mysterious to us? Yes. Mysterious to God? No. Amen!

Impressed to do something, Jim made some personal sacrifices and donated two satellite receivers and a satellite dish, so the radio staff could broadcast 3ABN Latinos television audio track over their radio station to the local community! cians in a moving concert, drawing us all closer to the Lord. The choir sang four songs from 3ABNs Pillars of Our Faith album, and they were ver y well received. Two of the songs were translated and adapted to Spanish by the university staff. This was their first public performance of these songs, and Im happy to say that Danny was so impressed with t h e u n ive r s it y choir that plans are underway to prepare the Spanish version of the CD! But the best part is that because of our meetings with the Chilean Adventist Church leaders, we expect to see the 3ABN Latino network added to at least 15 cable companies in Chile! Little could Jim Petts have known that his efforts to spread the gospel many thousands of miles away in Chile would pave the way years later for 3ABN Latino to be wellreceived. Because of his sacrifice, untold thousands will find their way to Jesus Christwho is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!

Dannys participation would serve as an inspiration for students and staff to allow the Lord to lead them and move forward in faith. And so it was I found myself traveling with Danny and our 3ABN Latino production manager, Jorge Jaque, to this grand event in Chile.

hile is a country in South America that is home to more than 16 million people. This ribbon of land borders Peru and Bolivia to its north, and Argentina to its east, and travels down the west coast of the continent along the Pacific Ocean to the very tip of South America. More than a year ago, we were privileged to receive several visitors from Chile Adventist University, including their chamber choir, who taped several songs in our studiosmuch to the delight of our 3ABN Latino viewers. So when university officials invited our founder, Danny Shelton, to visit their campus on their 105th anniversary, he was delighted to come and share how the Lord miraculously brought 3ABN into existence. The organizers of the event rightly believed that
John Dinzey is the general manager for 3ABN Latino Network.

Expect Big Things


Danny was scheduled for Friday evening, the Sabbath morning worship service, and an afternoon concert later that day, and a near capacity crowd turned out the first night. Danny sang some songs and shared some of the miracles that propelled Three Angels Broadcasting Network into a worldwide television ministry, and after the service many expressed how theyd been blessed by 3ABNs programming over the years. On Saturday morning about 1,200 people crowded the University Church as Danny told stories of the miracles that led to 3ABNs fullpower television stations in Manila, Philippines, and in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. Quoting Matthew 28:1820, Danny encouraged those present, and all those who watched around the world via the universitys Internet broadcast, to move forward in faith. Then, on Saturday afternoon, Danny was joined by the universitys chamber choir and local musi-

Paving the Way


Although our signal reaches them on the Intelsat 9 satellite, Chile is one of the few countries where 3ABN Latino is not available on local cable companies. So our plans included meeting with local church leadership and cable companies to further the work of preaching the gospel. However, upon our arrival, we learned that the groundwork had been laid nearly ten years ago, when Jim Petts, a 3ABN employee, had visited the university on a mission trip. Jim was very impressed with the school and the fact that they had a radio station broadcasting to the local community. However, he noticed that the majority

Crafts Playful Penguins


Hey, check this cool penguin craft! These little guys are fun and easy to make! 3abn.org/kidscrafts

Coloring Activity
Hi Kids! Did you know that penguins are actually birds? They dont fly, but theyre covered in feathers and lay eggs. They use their wings for swimming, and most of them swim at about 15 miles per hour. Thats pretty fastbut they need speed to get away from the leopard seals that try to catch them! Most penguins live in and around Antarctica, and they dont drink water, but eat snow instead. They also love to slide along the ice on their bellies! The female emperor penguin lays a single egg, and then the daddy keeps it warm by balancing it on his feet for up to nine weeks while the mommy is away feeding in the ocean. When she returns, she finds her mate and baby by calling out to them and hearing their unique call back! They are very loving parents, too. Arent Gods creatures wonderful?

Use your markers to color this happy Penguin family. Weve included a small color guide if you need help.

to travel, and the dangers are not readily discernible? First, we must daily submit our lives to Jesus, who made the ultimate sacrifice for us by humbly leaving His throne in glory, His royal crown, and His robe, to come to this world.Here He ministered through love and humility, stooping down to touch the life of a perishing soul without ever sacrificing His principles. This young woman had been in multiple foster homes, and when she turned 18 the state declared her an adult and dropped her off at a city park with her meager belongings! Now homeless, and experiencing what she describes as pure hell, she made a disastrous choice by mistaking a mans attention in a local bar for love. After years of abuse, loneliness, and misery, she paired up with him, and ultimately they were both arrested.

In the beginning, I didnt really know what to think of my predicament. I was in shock, but slowly I began to grow bitter. Then one day I just broke down and cried in my bed, and for some reason I began to argue with GodI probably sounded crazy to the other inmates around me. I grew up fighting Him all my life, and you could say I had an enormous chip on my shoulder. Throughout my life I was taught the Scriptures and at 17 I accepted Him into my life and was baptized. I truly believed I was heading in the right direction and felt a touch of happiness. But that feeling was very short-lived, and soon I allowed Satan to take control of me. What an argument I had that night with God!When completely exhausted, I began to feel something I hadnt felt in a long time: peace and comfort.I began to see what people were talking about when they said God knows how much youre capable of handling. At first I fought the reins, believing that life had put me through too much, and this was too much for me to bear.But, I am still alive. I am here and going through this for a reason.

Thank you again for all youve done, and please keep up the good work of ministering to everyone.God bless. This young womans journey with God has just begun, but let me tell you about a young man who has steadily climbed the spiritual ladder since he began corresponding with us over six years ago. His bad choice of friends led him to become a member of a gang, and after a murder happened he went to trial and was sentenced to life in prison, too.At the time he was first being charged, his girlfriend gave birth to a precious daughter whom he has not been able to see grow up. But look at these excerpts from the letters weve received: I lost my state court appeal, so prison is looking permanent unless the federal courts (God really) says otherwise. But Ive come this far, and Im mature enough to see the reality of the situation; I see more of others needs than mine.Im right where God can use me, and I pray for those I cant heal (those Ive hurt), or apologize to.

Complaints, criticism, and a judgmental spirit are tools of Satan.The tools of Jesus are a meek and quiet spirit.Pride and selfimportance must not reside in the heart of a child of God. The Scripture tell us in Psalm 52:2, Your tongue devises destruction, like a shar p razor, working deceitfully. There have been times in my own spiritual journey when I took the words of Jesus too lightly, but those words have become the stepping stones that today allow me to minister to inmates too numerous to count. In my younger years I would likely have turned down such an opportunity, but God uses life circumstances to change us. We are called by Jesus in John 13:34 to love one another, as He has loved us.This is not to be taken lightly; this is not an option if were seeking eternal life. In Isaiah 61:1 the prophet Isaiah calls on us to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.Jesus himself spoke similar words while speaking Through the Eyes of Jesus As Ive prayed earnestly to see others through the eyes of Jesus, my eyes have been opened to my own shortcomings, and I earnestly desire to have the mind and character of Jesus.If we could truly discern the circumstances that surround each individuals life, we wouldbe far less likely to speak hasty, judgmental words, and would be possessed

What an argument I had that night with God!When completely exhausted, I began to feel something I hadnt felt in a long time: peace and comfort.
of a much greater love!Jesus, the Redeemer and Mender of broken people, willingly came to free all men and women burdened down by the ravages of sin. Are we guilty of shunning the captives? Oh yes, it can easily happen when were in our comfort zone and see no need to step out of it.Our precious Savior had a marked love for the captives and less fortunate. Can we do any less? P.S. 3ABNs pastoral ministries department did send this young woman information on what happens when we die. Please join us in prayer for her, and all the others we seek to help.

faith-builders from our to-do list. But dont despair! Beginning Wednesday, January 11, at 7:00 p.m. CST and continuing every Wednesday, 3ABN will air a prayermeeting-style live broadcast. It will feature a vital time of prayer, and a study of topics that are vital to our Christian growth. In fact, our first episode will be on Victorious Christian Living, addressing how we can live a spiritual life in a natural body. A special website will enable viewers to send us their prayer requests for mention on the air, along with downloadable study topics. I will be privileged to be your host, along with other 3ABN presenters as their schedule allows. If your church doesnt have a midweek meeting, why not join us live, or record the service and share it with your congregation? Ellen White encourages us with these words: Prayer meeting is the pulse of the church body. A prayer meeting will always tell the true interest of the church members in spiritual and eternal things. The prayer meeting is as the pulse to the body; it denotes the true spiritual condition of the church. A lifeless, backslidden church has no relish for the prayer meetings. (Pastoral Ministry, p. 183.) She also wrote, Those who are really seeking for communion

by John Lomacang

enr y Clay put it well when he said, Prepare! The time will come when winter will ask you what you were doing all summer. I believe the time is coming when it will be revealed whether or not we have prepared for the winter that lies ahead of us. Jeremiah pointed to a time when opportunity would be exhausted and possibility would all but evaporate. His words are a chilling reminder that the days in which we live demand we take inventory of our future preparedness. His words seem to echo the regrets of those that ignored vital opportunities when he declares, The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved! Jeremiah 8:20.

10:25 cautions us to do this, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. In a push to revitalize the church and restore the essence of who we are, 3ABN is taking a bold step to restore the midweek service as a focus for the church. Isaiah laid out the blueprint: And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. Isaiah 58:12. Too often we apply this only to the restoration of the Sabbath, but I believe it has a far greater reach. Its a call to re-establish those assemblies that have safely sustained us Spending Time Together One of the greatest prepara- from generation to generation; to tions we can make is to spend time rebuild the vital elements that have together corporately.

with God will be seen in the prayer meeting, faithful to do their duty, and earnest and anxious to reap all the benefits they can gain. They will improve every opportunity of placing themselves where they can receive the rays of light from heaven. (Heavenly Places, p. 91.) As a people, we believe that Jesus is soon to come. If we continue to neglect one of the most basic avenues of preparation, I believe that time will prove, as former president George W. Bush said, The enemy has found our Achilles heel. So get your Bibles and join us as we get back to basics!

mation. High blood pressure can cause fluid retention, and serious pathological conditions such as congestive heart failure and kidney disease are accompanied by edema, as well. But here we shall be discussing the benign but still undesirable forms of fluid retention, and suggestions on how to reduce it.

5. Fasting This is a remarkably effective way to reducing swelling. Often, one or two days of fasting will reduce the swelling, or will prevent the swelling of premenstrual tension. 6. Diet The use of salt, oil, sugar, and other concentrated nutrients is often a cause of fluid retention. These foods also tend to increase the blood pressure. By strictly omitting these items from the diet it can be almost guaranteed there will be some reduction in blood pressure and fluid retention.

9. Exercise Vigorous exercise always results in burning up extra calories, and increasing the meta-

Muscle Movement Walking is very good for reducing fluid retention in the feet and legs. The muscle contractions milk the large veins and increase blood return to the heart. They also milk the lymphatics, which tends to reduce the tissue fluid.

Individuals who have this affliction should use elastic stockings and get plenty of walking exercise. Varicose veins in the legs are caused by an increase in intra-abdominal pressure from such sources as overweight or pregnancy, constipation, or the use of girdles or constricting bands. These should be avoided. 8. Sleep Get plenty of it, since loss of sleep is a common offender. The blood pressure tends to be maintained at a high level, and lymphatic return of fluid is less effective in sleep loss. The accumulation of fatigue products and toxic metabolites may also promote fluid retention. bolic rate, which will eventually result in weight loss. However, if muscles become sore from overuse, they may become swollen and retain fluid. Many a woman feels her weight reduction program is a failure because of this kind of fluid retention, but if she continues her weight reduction, after a few days the inflammation in the muscles will go down, resulting in the loss of several pounds of weight. 10. Raspberry Tea The premenstrual time is characterized by fluid retention in many women. Although no treatment other than the ones given above is needed, a cup of red raspberry leaf tea may be helpful.

use of elastic stockings or ACE bandages on swollen extremities may help to reduce fluid retention. Elastic stockings may be worn for years without harmful effects. 4. Arm Elevation Walking with swinging of the arms causes fluid to accumulate in the fingers, even to the point of making them stiff; however, this fluid usually dissipates in an hour or two after ending the walk. Should the fluid last longer than two hours, one may need to elevate the arms for a few minutes, being careful that there are no constricting bands around the hands or arms.

esentment is like eating poison and hoping the other guy dies! I remember hearing that pithy saying for the first time, and I cant say I laughed at it because I had no clue what resentments were actually doing to me. Ive always been fascinated with the origins of words, though, and resentment comes from the Old French word, resentir, or re-feel. When I felt harmed also had to justify themIf this (whether it was real or perceived), happened to you, I bet youd be mad, too!

Understanding produces transformation, and transformation is just what God wants! Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2. Brian was walking the very path God was calling him to walk. As Brian would ask his oftenbrilliant questions, we would go to Gods Word for the answers. Why do evil people get away with doing evil? Why do good people suffer and die young? Why has God allowed Satan to run rampant for thousands of years? On and on it went, but Gods Word gave Brian the answers he needed. Never Give Up This continued for nine years! Nine years of transformation by the Word of God. Thats where Brian found wisdom. Thats also where he found powerpower to rise above anger by forgiving his enemies. It also provided him with the peace that God promises in Philippians 4:7, And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

His Calls?
For a number of years hed called several other ministry prayer lines, as well as ours, and unfortunately, the guidance he received from some of the other prayer warriors only added to the confusion. On one occasion, someone at another ministry prayed that an individual who angered Brian would die! As Brian pointed out the error in their beliefs, these ministry workers became disenchanted with him and blocked his phone number, refusing his calls. This resulted in him calling us even more often, using excessive time, and honestly forcing us to consider blocking his calls, as well.

fter Cain rejects Gods grace and forgiveness, the Bible says he walks away from the Lord and begins a genealogical line that runs parallel with the righteous line of his younger brother Seth, the appointed one.

The wicked ones continually reject the Holy Spirits pleadings, and now they endanger the righteous! Finally, He says, My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years. This isnt a reference to mans lifespan, since Noahs descendants certainly lived longer than that. Instead, it indicates how long the Holy Spirit will continue pleading with men. Indeed, Noah preaches for 120 years before the flood comes, but men harden their hearts to the point where the Holy Spirit cannot reach themthe truly unpardonable sin (see Matthew 12:31). The Genesis 6:4 reference to the nephilim (often translated as giants) causes great confusion. Some speculate these were giants in stature, others believe they were notorious rulers, and still others believe they were fallen angels. But while nephilim literally means fallen ones, they cannot be fallen angels, since neither Heaven nor angels are mentioned; they cannot be rulers, since no kings or kingdoms are mentioned; and as

far as giants, theres no immediate contextual evidence indicating physical height. Instead, the detailed lineages mentioned in the previous chapters indicate the fallen ones to be those who have fallen into sin. They are giants, all rightgiants in wickedness, not in stature! Theyre men of renownnotorious evildoers. The next verse confirms this, when the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. God Regretted? The Bible now makes a sad statement: And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. Genesis 6:6. The danger here is to make God human, since the writer, by necessity, must use human words to describe Gods feelings. Did He change His mind? Can God make mistakes? What we do know is that He grieved in His heart. We stretch to understand Hebrew thinking; we must stretch much more to understand God! The antediluvians reject the Holy Spirits pleas for 120 years before they finally commit the unpardonable sin. What amazing grace God shows mankind through Noahthe only man who found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
