Genesis 6:1-8 :: The Days of Noah


Jesus told us plainly, “As the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”

Noah’s days were marked by wickedness – great wickedness. The form, shape, imagination, thought, and intent of man’s heart was only evil all the time. The world was filled with violence.

God had once looked upon His creation and said it was very good. By the days of Noah, God’s view had changed dramatically. This world was completely ruined physically and spiritually. Therefore, God changed His actions and gave man 120 years to repent – to change their minds and actions.

One man out of the multitudes found grace in the eyes of the LORD – Noah. Only seven others listened to God’s warning about the impending judgment.

Those who choose to walk with Jesus, like Enoch and Noah, will be taken and delivered from God’s wrath.

Those who choose to walk away from Jesus, like the multitudes of Noah’s day who ignored truth, will be left to His righteous judgment.

Find God’s grace and love and peace by faith in Jesus.
