Transcript of Copy of The Great Flood

Noah's Ark
The Great Flood God's Message God told Noah that there would be a great flood that would wipe out all of the people on Earth. Building the Ark On the Ark he was to put two of every kind of animal and seven of certain types. On The Ark God had protected them from the rains, and now they were safe as a family. After many days Noah's family became very tired and didn't want to be on the Ark anymore. SLAM! God shut the door of the ark. The rains finally began. Gen. 7:16 God's Promise God had promised Noah and his family that when the floods came, He would keep them safe. To honor Him they built an altar on the land But the people on Earth had become wicked and very disobedient. God looked down at the world and was sorry about all the evil things people were doing. In fact, He was sorry that He had even created man! There was ONE man that loved God and was righteous. His name was Noah. He told Noah to talk to everyone he could and warn them that He was going to destroy the earth and everything in it. But the people wouldn't listen. Noah and his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, began building. The whole time they were working, Noah was also preaching to the people. He warned them to turn back to God or they would ALL be destroyed. He told them it was going to start raining and would continue to rain for FORTY days... Instead of turning back to God, they started making fun of Noah. They thought he was crazy for building such a big ark. They had never seen rain, because the earth was watered by dew that rested on the ground in the evening. They LAUGHED and LAUGHED at Noah. B......UUUUUMP! "What was that?" They noticed that the ark had stopped floating. Noah wanted to see if it was time to come out of the ark, so he opened a window and let one of the ravens fly out. He watched as the raven flew around. The people of this time were very intelligent. Some began to build highly developed cities. Some people lived to be almost a thousand years old. Think about what you could learn and accomplish if you could live several hundred years. God instructed Noah to build an ark of safety Genesis 6:19-20:
"And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive." Genesis 7:2-3:
"Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth." Noah was trying to live righteously in this wicked world, so God was merciful to him and his family. (Gen. 6:8-9; 7:1). After the last timber had gone into place, then it must have started. It was like someone turned a switch and every animal slowly began moving to the Ark … Seven days before the rain started, God ordered Noah, who was 600 years old, to come into the Ark with his family and all the animals. (Gen. 7:1-4, 6). God caused water to both rise up from below the earth and to fall from the sky for 40 days, until the water was 22 feet deep over the highest mountain. (Gen. 7:11-12, 19-20). Everyone and everything that had lived on dry ground was drowned. Only those in the Ark survived. (Gen. 7:21-23). After 150 days the water began to subside. The Ark came to rest on a high mountain of Ararat. Three months later the tops of the mountains could be seen. (Gen. 8:3-5). When the surface of the ground was dry enough, the Bible says that God told Noah to go out of the Ark, 365 days after he entered it. (Gen. 8:16). God made a promise that "never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth." The rainbow is the sign of His covenant. (Gen. 9:8-17). Noah was given instructions about how he was to build a big boat--450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. (Gen. 6:14-16). I am told that its dimensions were similar to today's oil tankers, making it practically impossible to overturn even in the worst storm at sea. Then he sent out a dove. He watched as the dove tried to find a place to rest. Since it couldn't find a good spot to build a nest, it flew back to the ark and Noah knew that there was still too much water on the ground. About 7 days later he sent out a second dove. It returned with a branch in its mouth. About 7 days later he sent the dove out for the third time, and it did not return. This meant it had found a place to stay.
