Noah and the Great Floodpage 2
While building the ark, Noah preached to the wicked people, saying; “Those who refuse to honor God shall be destroyed.” Sadly, everyone mocked Noah and laughed at God’s warning.
But Noah and his family believed God, so at the appointed time they entered the ark, and the Lord shut them in.
During the Flood, the waters covered everything on the Earth, including the hills, and even the mountains. All living creatures on Earth died, except for everything in the Ark.
Then God caused it to rain on the Earth for forty days and forty nights. From underground, water spouted up like fountains and the waters increased on the Earth. The waters kept rising, until the ark floated.
Finally, the water covered everything on the Earth, including the hills and even the mountains.
The waters covered the Earth for one hundred and fifty days. But God took care of Noah and every living thing in the ark. Then God made a wind to pass over the Earth causing the water level to begin to go down. The waters continued to recede from the earth.
When the ark came to rest upon the mountains of Ararat, and the plants began once again to grow, God spoke to Noah, saying, “Go out of the ark, you and every living thing with you.” And they went out.
Afterward, God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful, have many children, go out and refill the Earth. Also, besides the plants I gave you for food, animals are now delivered into your hands to eat. But anyone who kills another human being must forfeit his own life, because man is made in the image of God.”
Then God said, “Behold, I am establishing My promise with you, and with your descendants after you. Never again will all people and animals die from a flood.
I am putting My rainbow in the clouds as a token of My promise.
Whenever I bring rain clouds over the Earth, you will see the rainbow, and I too will see it, and honor My covenant.”
