Transcript of Noah's Covenant with God

Challenges Overcome
Noah
Noah's covenant with God is by the far the most important as it saved the human race from extinction. God decided that evil had over-shadowed good so decided to make it clean. Noah found favour in God's eyes so God told Noah to build an ark and he and his family would be safe from an impending flood. God instructed Noah to take two of each type of unclean animal and seven pairs of every clean animal as well as his family onto the ark.


Noah's Covenant
Noah's covenant with God stands above all others and is by far the most important. Without this covenant the human race would be extinct. God said to Noah, "I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth”' (Genesis 9:11). This covenant has ensured the continuation of human life.
Noah's Character
Noah's character is described in Genesis: "Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord . . . Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God" (Genesis:6:8-9). To build the ark for God Noah needed determination and above all, faith. Noah had always been faithful to God even throughout the building of the ark when he was ridiculed by the unbelieving people. He was a kind, generous man determined to follow God and make the world a better place.
Noah
Noah's faith was challenged when he had to wait for God to fulfill his promise. During this time the unbelieving people ridiculed and verbally abused him. Noah had to remain strong and faithful to get through this time.

Without Noah and his covenant with God we would not be here today. When God was set on destroying the earth Noah stepped up to the challenge. We owe our lives to Noah.We should all strive to be like Noah. His qualities are exceptional. With his compassion, faith and determination, he is a shining example for all of us to follow.
As God had said it would, it rained on Earth for forty days and forty nights and every living thing on earth was destroyed. When God invited Noah out of the ark, Noah set up an altar and began to sacrifice offerings to God. God established a covenant with Noah insuring that the human race would never again be destroyed by flood and as a sign of peace at this covenant God created a rainbow.
