Story of Noah-Part 10

The Biblical Account of The Story of Noah

story of noahWe come to the end of the story of Noah. The Noahic Covenant begins a new dispensation in God’s plan for mankind, one that lasts until God’s call of Abraham and the patriarchs. Like all covenants, this agreement came with certain features to help set the agreement apart and mark its establishment. And we also want to consider a question: what did the Flood ultimately accomplish on Earth? It came in response to the extreme nature of man’s sin on Earth, but what did the Flood achieve toward that end?

The Story of Noah-Part 9

The Biblical Account of The Story of Noah

story of noahAs we continue the story of Noah in chapter 9 of Genesis, we see Noah entering a strange, new world. Noah’s experience continues to mirror the story of Creation and Adam in the Garden. The world has been made new out of water and Noah has come into a world with no one else, a new beginning. Not coincidentally, there are 8 people on the Ark, and the number 8 in the Bible is associated with new beginnings. But more  than just looking different, Noah’s world will be different in several important and fundamental ways. God is now about to change His dispensation of grace from what

The Story of Noah-Part 7

The Biblical Account of The Story of Noah

story of noahSo the story of Noah continues in its final stages. When we last heard from Noah and his family, they were floating in the ark while the waters above and below poured onto the Earth. The water level rose for 150 days and now it’s reached the pinnacle of the flood waters.

Genesis 8:1-4 (NKJV)

Noah’s Deliverance

Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. The fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were also stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained. And the waters receded continually from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters decreased. Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. Continue reading
