You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to a cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third decks.

  6. 6. Genesis 6:19-20 And of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.

  7. 7. Genesis 6:21-22 And you shall take for yourself of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to yourself; and it shall be food for you and for them.” Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

  10. 10. Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.
  11. 11. - What things were not yet seen? - Had it ever rain on the earth? - Was the earth at that time similar to a greenhouse? (Genesis 2:5-6)

Genesis 7:4-6 For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.” And Noah did according to all that the LORD commanded him. Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters were on the earth.
  19. 19. Genesis 7:7-10 So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood. Of clean animals, of animals that are unclean, of birds, and of everything that creeps on the earth, two by two they went into the ark to Noah, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth.
  20. 20. - Was God precise in the times given to Noah? - Was the ark God’s salvation for his chosen from His judgment?
  21. 21. Genesis 7:11-13 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights. On the very same day Noah and Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark.--
  22. 22. Genesis 7:14-16 they and every beast after its kind, all cattle after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort. And they went into the ark to Noah, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the LORD shut him in.
  23. 23. - Where are the fountains of the great deep? - Was water coming out from inside the earth? - Was this the first account of rain on the earth? - Who commanded the animals to enter the ark? - Who shut the door of the ark? - Can anyone enter once the door was closed? - Who decided when was the time to shut the door?
  24. 24. Genesis 7:17-20 Now the flood was on the earth forty days. The waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. The waters prevailed and greatly increased on the earth, and the ark moved about on the surface of the waters. And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered. The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered.
  25. 25. Genesis 7:21-24 And all flesh died that moved on the earth: birds and cattle and beasts and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man. All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all that was on the dry land, died. So He destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive. And the waters prevailed on the earth one hundred and fifty days.
  26. 26. - How high were the waters over the highest mountain? - Was the ark safe?? - Did Noah has any control over the ark’s destiny? - How many days were the waters over the earth?
  27. 27. - What did God say 120 years earlier? - Did men repent from their ways? - Was God patient with men? 1 Peter 3:20
  28. 28. 1 Peter 3:20 to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water.
  29. 29. - Why did men rebel against God? - Is disobedience an expression of rejection? - Were men grateful towards God? - Did they have any regard for Him? - What were men doing? Matthew 24:37-39
  30. 30. Matthew 24:37-39 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
  31. 31. - Who is the Son of Man and when will He come?? - Is there going to be judgment with His coming? -Were men heeding the commandments of God? - Can a good God destroy His beloved creation? - What was Noah doing?

  34. 34. Ecclesiastes 12:14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. - What happened with Noah after the rain stopped? Genesis 8:1-4
  35. 35. Genesis 8:1-2 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.
  36. 36. Genesis 8:3-4 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.
  37. 37. - Did God forget about Noah? - Aren’t we all in His presence at all times? - Have we found the remains of the ark over mount Ararat? - How long has been Noah inside the ark? - Where did the waters go? Psalms 104:5-9
  38. 38. Psalms 104:5-9 You who laid the foundations of the earth, so that it should not be moved forever, You covered it with the deep as with a garment; The waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke they fled; At the voice of Your thunder they hastened away. They went up over the mountains; They went down into the valleys, to the place which You founded for them. You have set a boundary that they may not pass over, that they may not return to cover the earth.

Then he sent out a raven, which kept going to and fro until the waters had dried up from the earth.
  41. 41. - Was Noah trying to get out of the ark? - Was he tired or worried about the provisions in the ark? - When did he come out of the ark? Genesis 8:13-17
  42. 42. Genesis 8:13-14 And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, that the waters were dried up from the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked, and indeed the surface of the ground was dry. And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dried.
  43. 43. Genesis 8:15-17 Then God spoke to Noah, saying, “Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons and your sons’ wives with you. Bring out with you every living thing of all flesh that is with you: birds and cattle and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, so that they may abound on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth”.

Every animal, every creeping thing, every bird, and whatever creeps on the earth, according to their families, went out of the ark. Then Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
  46. 46. Genesis 8:21-228:21-22 And the LORD smelled a soothing aroma. Then the LORD said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done. While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease”.

  48. 48. - Did animals reproduce in the ark for a year? - Why the sacrifices of clean animals produce a soothing aroma to God?
  49. 49. - Who provided the animals? - Does God only accepts His own provision? - Why did Noah offer the sacrifices? - Was it to come close to God?
  50. 50. - How did the climate change after this event? - Is the earth the greenhouse that He created in the beggining?
  51. 51. WHAT DID WE LEARN TODAY? - The judgment of men’s sin is inevitable. - God provides a way out for His chosen in the midst of His judgment. - We shall not confuse the patience of God with indifference. - When the door of the ark was closed by God, judgment came and the ungodly understood. There is no second opportunity. - God gives the just all that he needs - The weather in the earth changed radically after this event. The seasons started. Share your own comment …
