Genesis 7:1-24
esv
7 1 Then the Lord said to Noah, p “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that q you are righteous before me in this generation. 2 Take with you seven pairs of all r clean animals, 1 the male and his mate, and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and his mate, 3 and seven pairs 1 of the birds of the heavens also, male and female, to keep their offspring alive on the face of all the earth. 4 For in seven days s I will send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, t and every living thing 1 that I have made I will blot out from the face of the ground.” 5 u And Noah did all that the Lord had commanded him. 6 Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came upon the earth. 7 And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him went into the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8 Of clean animals, and of animals that are not clean, and of birds, and of everything that creeps on the ground, 9 two and two, male and female, went into the ark with Noah, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And after seven days the waters of the flood came upon the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the v fountains of the great deep burst forth, and w the windows of the heavens were opened. 12 And rain fell upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13 On the very same day Noah and his sons, Shem and Ham and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them entered the ark, 14 they and every beast, according to its kind, and all the livestock according to their kinds, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, according to its kind, and every bird, according to its kind, every winged creature. 15 They x went into the ark with Noah, two and two of all flesh in which there was the breath of life. 16 And those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in y as God had commanded him. And the Lord shut him in. 17 The flood z continued forty days on the earth. The waters increased and bore up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. 18 The waters prevailed and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the face of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed so mightily on the earth that all the high mountains under the whole heaven were covered. 20 The waters prevailed above the mountains, covering them fifteen cubits 1 deep. 21 And a all flesh died that moved on the earth, birds, livestock, beasts, all swarming creatures that swarm on the earth, and all mankind. 22 Everything on the dry land b in whose nostrils was the breath of life died. 23 He blotted out every living thing that was on the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens. They were blotted out from the earth. Only c Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark. 24 And the waters prevailed on the earth 150 days.

The flood came, just as God had said Introduction Imagine £5 million in an account which has, for the past 10 years, gained £10 per month. When was the account opened? You don't know. You don't know what drastic changes have or haven't happened. Either a long time with small changes over time, or a short time with huge changes. With our views of the ancient history of the world - including geology and fossils, the same is the case. Are we talking about very long time periods with tiny change along the way? Or a shorter time, which included a cataclysmic catastrophe? 'Cataclysm' is how the Greeks translated the Genesis 'flood'. It depends on what our assumptions are. So what should inform our assumptions? Realise that these kinds of assumptions affect so many things. E.g., how old was Adam when he was created? How old was the wine Jesus made from water? 1. Noah and his family enter the ark safely along with the animals (v1-16) v1 righteous before me in this generation v2-3 reason for the seven pairs of 'clean' and a pair of unclean...to keep them alive. God caring for his creation. v4 Seven day warning, then 40 days of flood, then 110 days (ie 150 days total). Symmetry with how the flood ends. v5 Noah did it all v6-10 exactly as God had said v11-12 how did the flood happen? 'rain of biblical proportions' - NO! That would require earth and heaven opening up, not just rain. Plus, no one around to report on it. v13 the future of humanity bound up in these eight v14-16 similarities to the animals before Adam v16 the LORD shut him in. Salvation belongs to the LORD. Our only hope in life and death is that we are not our own but belong to God. 2. The flood came and destroyed every living thing (v17-24) v17-24 this is the great cataclysm Days 5 and 6 of creation are being saved through the Ark Did this really happen? Add section summarising evidence from geology and fossils. FCF: Not believing that God will do exactly as he has promised. This was the issue for Noah's generation as they lived life as if nothing would happen, despite Noah a preacher of righteousness. [Luke 17.20-27, or 1 Peter reference to Jesus preaching through Noah] Person of Jesus: like Noah, his blamelessness condemned his generation (cf Jesus before Pilate and co). He did all that his Father gave him to do. Work of Jesus: the day of judgement came onto the people of God, focused entirely on Jesus of Nazareth. He was blotted out. The breath of life left him as he said 'it is finished' and breathed his last. He was de-created. Union with Jesus: He who hears my words and does them will be like a man who built his house upon rock. When the flood came, his house was firm. Why? Because all the destruction and condemnation I deserved has already fallen on Jesus. Wrap-up: The flood came, just as God said. Jesus will return to judge his enemies and rescue his people, just as he has said. When he comes, will he find us faithful and ready?
