The Flood

Genesis chapter 6 says “Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth”
His journey of faith was to build the ark. When he built the ark it wasn’t raining. So people started to make fun of him. But that didn’t stop Noah. He just did what God commanded him to do. It wasn’t easy for Noah to build. He built the ark out of Cypress wood. He put 2 pairs of every unclean animal on the ark. He put 7 pairs of every clean animal on the ark. Then Noah sent out a raven. It didn’t land because it couldn’t land. Then Noah sent out a dove. It returned. Then he waited 7 more days & sent it out again. It returned with an olive branch. Hallelujah! The family rejoiced.
