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.

And move forward from there. Continue reading

story of noahAs we continue the story of Noah we see God is true to His word. God brings the flood. We must look at this event from a couple of perspectives. First, let’s examine the facts as they relate to the pictures and shadows that God is presenting through the story. In the next part in the series on the story of Noah, we’ll look at the nature of the physical events  themselves and how God accomplishes this remarkable moment. In verse 11, the monumental significance of this event is emphasized with Moses’ careful accounting of the day on the Jewish calendar. It was the second month, the seventeenth day of the month. Moses seems to be imposing the Jewish civil calendar onto the events of Noah’s day, based on divine inspiration.  By that same calendar, Jesus was resurrected from the grave on the seventeenth day of the second month.  Continue reading
