Bible Q & A Genesis (Born of Noah)

Hi, Amazing people,

In my last blog, we read about Noah, his father was Lamech and today we gonna read about how he was going to take the responsibility to save mankind and other lives.

Genesis Chapter 5:32
And Noah was five hundred years old; and Noah begat Shem, Ham and Japheth.

Then along with boys girls were also born and boy married with the girls of their choice. Everything was going smooth, however, there was one problem, the problem of such long-living years upon which LORD thought to himself since mankind has grown so much now I should cut down on their lifespan.

Genesis Chapter 6:3
And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with Man, for that he also is Flesh, yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.

That is how our LORD cut down on the lifespan of human beings. Later, God observed that the wickedness of man is increasing on the earth and every imagination of thoughts are evil of man. Then Lord felt so grieved that he decided to finish humans and all living things from the earth as the earth was fully corrupted.

Genesis Chapter 6:7
And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man and beast, and the creeping things and the fowl of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them.

This is so heartbreaking, that our creator felt this way and he still feels the same when we bend towards evil thoughts. Isn't it?

But LORD's grace was upon NOAH, GOD made a plan and instructed Noah to execute his plan.  What was that plan? Let's find out.

 Genesis Chapter 6: 13 & 14
  And GOD said unto Noah, the end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold I will destroy them with the Earth.  Make thee and ARK of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou, make in the ARK and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

That is how LORD instructed Noah to prepare an Ark and when the Ark was prepared, GOD asked Noah to bring his wife, his sons and their wives and a pair of all living things into the Ark, because a huge Flood was going to hit the earth sent by the GOD. Noah followed instructions of the LORD and brought his wife, sons and his wives along with all living thing's pair.

After that, a huge flood hit the Earth and it lasted till 40 Days and 40 Nights, but Noah, his family and all the living things that were with him in the Ark were saved.

Genesis chapter 6:24
And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

Have you heard about such a huge flood in the history of mankind except the one that is mentioned in the BIBLE?

But people understand why the LORD, had to take this step because Earth was fully corrupted, our GOD is pure, he can't tolerate corruption anywhere. He wasn't left with any other choice but still, he showed mercy upon man and we are all alive because of Noah.

My question for today is are we living a corrupted life?

Are we testing the patience of our LORD daily, just because he forgives us?

In my next blog, I would continue telling you about this chapter.
