Noah Believes God – Genesis 6:9-7:10

Noah Believes God  Genesis 69710

These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, and [a]perfect in his generations: Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 And the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.

13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; [b]rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. 15 And this is how thou shalt make it: the length of the ark three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 [c]light shalt thou make to the ark, and to a cubit shalt thou finish it [d]upward; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. 17 And I, behold, I do bring the flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is in the earth shall die. 18 But I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds after their kind, and of the cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. 21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. 22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

And Jehovah said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee seven and seven, the male and his female; and of the beasts that are not clean two, the male and his female: of the birds also of the heavens, seven and seven, male and female, to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living thing that I have made will I [e]destroy from off the face of the ground. And Noah did according unto all that Jehovah commanded him.

And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood. Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of birds, and of everything that creepeth upon the ground, there went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, male and female, as God commanded Noah. 10 And it came to pass after the seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.

Noah Believes God – Genesis 6:9-7:10

When God saw that the earth was ruined by the sins of humanity, He warned Noah that a great flood would come. This prompted him to build an ark, so that he and his family could escape the watery disaster that threatened all life on earth.

Throughout the Bible, the faithful are characterized by their faith. Those who save their lives by saving faith have an eternal covenant with the One True God (see John 17:3).

The Lord promised Noah, “If you obey my command, you will be saved” and “I will never again destroy the earth by water.” These are two of the most important promises that God makes in the Bible. They are a royal grant covenant between the Lord and all of His creation.

How does this covenant relate to our relationship with Christ?

When a person enters into this covenant with Christ, they are sealed by His blood for eternity. They are entrusted to the care of the Holy Spirit in order that they may live and grow in Christ’s grace and truth (2 Timothy 1:14).

Noah Believes God

In the time of the flood, mankind was in a state of extreme corruption and violence. All of the elements that make up man’s nature were corrupted by sin. This included every inclination of the thoughts of their hearts, which were all evil continually (Genesis 6:5-6).

The sinful nature of mankind was such that it was unable to distinguish good from evil. This led to constant exploitation and harm to the weak or unhealthy. As a result, the world was filled with disease, war, and death.
