Who Was Noah? & Noah’s Ark

You seem a bit upset.  So when You looked down upon the earth from Heaven did everyone, but Noah, look like a bunch of annoying flies?  Did You just smash everyone with a huge fly swatter?  What about Noah?

God told Noah to build an ark – 450 ft. X 750 ft. X 45 ft. It would take him 120 years to build it (Gen 6:3) and then he, his wife, his sons, their wives, and two of each animals were to enter get in it. God also told him to put enough food to feed all for 150 days (Gen 6:14-8:14).

“And behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under Heaven; and everything that is in the earth shall die.

But with thee will I establish my covenant…”(Gen 6:17-18).

For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth 40 days and 40 nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth (Gen 7:4).

Note: Noah lived in the desert so I can only imagine the ridicule him and his family must have went through when neighbors saw him building a huge boat in their front yard. Aside from why he was building it. No one had ever seen rain; the earth watered itself with a mist (Gen 2:5-6).

Noah had true faith, he did what God said and followed His orders.

Noah’s ark was possibly found on Mount Ararat, in Turkey. As God said after the flood receded, the ark settled on a mountain of Ararat (Gen 8:4).
