Genesis Chapter 7 ~ The Flood!

Genesis Chapter 7

God told Noah to get his family and himself in the ark. God told him he would send rain for 40 days and 40 nights to kill every living thing on the earth. When the floods came Noah was 600 years old. 2 of every animal on earth loaded onto the ark, and the floods took 7 days to come on the earth. The Lord shut them in the ark, and everything God said would happen happened. The water was so high that even all the mountains of the earth were covered by water. God blotted out every living thing that was on the dry ground. The waters prevailed on the earth 150 days.

This is a foreshadow of God’s final judgment. God hates sin, and this is only a glimpse of how He judges sin. To appease God, blood must be shed (Heb. 9:22). This also is a foreshadow of how God would later make a way for people to be saved through His only Son, Jesus Christ. If by repentance and faith we enter the ark of Jesus Christ's body we will safely navigate the waters of His terrible, just, good wrath at the end of days.
