Story 5: Noah’s Ark ♫

Genesis 5:28-11:10

 

 

The Bridge: As the earth was populated, it became more and more filled with violence and wickedness because of sin. “Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.” (Genesis 6:5-6).

 

The Story:

  • “The LORD said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.” But “Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD” (Genesis 6:7-8). Noah was a righteous man because
    he walked with God, and he trusted Him (Psalm 27:5, 33:18; 2 Peter 2:9).
  • God told him to build a large boat, called an Ark, which would hold not only his family, but pairs of all the animals of the earth along with extra pairs of clean animals for a later sacrifice (See Leviticus 11). The Ark took many years to build, but Noah obeyed God and built it.
  • It rained for 40 days and 40 nights and flooded all the earth for one hundred and fifty days. Everyone perished except for Noah and his family. Afterwards, the Ark landed on a mountain. When Noah and his family got off the Ark, Noah offered sacrifices to God. God promised never to send a flood to cover the earth again and gave the rainbow as a sign of that promise.
  • God blessed Noah and then gave him a command; He told him, “…Go out from the ark, you and your wife, and your sons and your sons’ wives with you. Bring out with you every living thing that is with you of all flesh—birds and animals and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth—that they may swarm on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.” (Genesis 8:15-17, ESV). And they did [Acts 17:26].
  • After the flood, the people became rebellious and determined to build a tower to the heavens to reach God. God confused them by giving them different languages so they could not work together (Genesis 11:1-9).

 

How did God reveal His provision for sin?
