Genesis 6The Days of Noah I. Why is

Genesis 6The Days of Noah I. Why is the study of the days of Noah so relevant to today? A. The days of Noah mark a significant event in human history. 1. It tells us something of the nature of God. There is an end to His patience and

longsuffering (Gen. 6:3; I Pet. 3:20). 2. It marked a new beginning in human history. a. In Adam and Eve God populated the earth from two people. b. In Noah and his family God populated the earth from eight people (I Pet. 3:20).

3. It has significance in the world of geology and science. B. The days of Noah are prophetic of the end times (Mt. 24:36-44). Jesus prophesied that the days prior to the return of the Lord would resemble the days of Noah in some way. Jesus focused on three similarities between the days of Noah and the days

preceding His return. 1. The judgment of God will certainly come on the earth. a. In the case of the days of Noah it was to come in the form of a flood upon the earth. b. In the case of the end times it will come when Jesus returns at the Second Coming.

2. The judgment of God will come when everything seems to be proceeding as usual (Luke 17:28). 3. The judgment of God will be escaped by those that are ready and faithful (Heb. 11:7; I Th. 5:46). II. What are the things that characterize the days of Noah?

A. The days of Noah are described for us in Genesis 6:1-5, 11-13). 1. There was a population explosion (6:1). 2. Marriage vows were taken lightly (6:2; Mt. 24:38). 3. The focus of man was on seeking pleasure (Gen. 6:2; Mt. 24:38; Compare Luke 12:19). a. There was a focus on

satisfying the physical appetites of man. b. This will be true of the end times as well (II Tim. 3:1-5). 4. The earth was filled with violence (6:11, 13) 5. The moral climate was one of wickedness (Gen. 6:5). 6. Mankind had lost his way and become corrupt (Gen. 6:11-12).

7. The spiritual climate was one of darkness (Gen. 6:5-6). B. The days of Noah are a prophetic example of what we can expect in the last days prior to the return of the Lord. III. Why would God be so apparently harsh in His judgment on man? A. The people in the days of Noah

had powerful testimonies. 1. They had the testimony of the Cherubim and flaming sword. 2. They had the testimony of the mark of Cain as a warning to all. 3. They had the testimony of Adam and other Godly men and women. 4. They had the testimony of the

translation of Enoch. 5. They had the testimony of the ark. B. The people in the days of Noah had strong warnings. 1. They had the prophetic preaching of Enoch (Jude 1415). 2. They had the prophetic naming of Methuselah (when he is dead it shall be sent).

3. They had the preaching of Noah (II Pet. 2:4-5). 4. They had the signs of the times (Mt. 16:1-4; Luke 19:44). C. The people in the days of Noah had the ministry of the Holy Spirit (Gen. 6:3; II Pet. 3:9). IV. How did Noah stand out in his generation?

A. Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord (Gen. 6:8). 1. Noah was a righteous and just man (Gen. 6:9; Ezek. 14:14, 16, 18, 20). 2. Noah was a perfect man (Gen. 6:9). 3. Noah walked with God (Gen. 6:9; Amos 3:3). 4. Noah was a preacher of righteousness (I Pet. 3:18-21; II

his home (Heb. 11:7; II Pet. 2:45). B. Noahs name is used in a rather unique way in this chapter (Gen. 6:8-13). 1. Five is the number of GRACE. The fifth time his name occurs in the Bible it says, Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord (Gen. 6:8). 2. Six is the number of MAN. The

sixth time his name occurs in the Bible it says, This is the genealogy of Noah (Gen. 6:9). 3. Seven is the number of PERFECTION. The seventh time his name occurs in the Bible it says, Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. 4. Eight is the number of NEW BEGINNINGS. The eighth time

his name occurs in the Bible it says, Noah walked with God. 5. Nine is the number of FRUITFULNESS. The ninth time his name occurs in the Bible it says, And Noah begot three V. How is the Ark seen as a type of the Church? The ark of Noah was the place of Gods provision or place of refuge

from the coming judgment. A. The ark provides us with a wonderful type of the Church. 1. It was built by Gods initiative (Mt. 16:18). 2. It was designed by God. God provided the pattern. 3. It was made up of many trees built together (I Pet. 2:5). 4. It had many rooms or

compartments (Gen. 6:14; John 14:2, 23). 5. It had an atonement (pitch) covering (Gen. 6:14). 6. It only had one door into it (Gen. 6:16; John 14:6). 7. It was a place of the presence of God (Mt. 18:20; Eph. 2:22).

8. It was available for clean and unclean animals (Acts 10:9-16). 9. It was a place of food or provision. 10. It was the God ordained means for people to escape judgment (Compare Acts 27:31). B. The ark was big enough to fulfill its purpose. 1. It was measured in cubits.

a. It was 30 cubits high, 50 cubits wide and 300 cubits long. A cubit is approximately 18 inches or one half of a meter. b. It would be approximately 15 meters high, 25 meters wide and 150 meters long. 2. It was a big box. a. The cubic volume of the ark

would be approximately 1,500,000 cubic feet or 56,250 meters. b. cubic This size would be equivalent to approximately 522 standard box cars or nearly 600 standard size shipping containers. c. It has been estimated that this size would accommodate

approximately 125,000 sheep. C. The ark was prepared in advance of the flood (Genesis 5:32 with VI. What are the theories concerning the giants of Genesis 6? There are two primary issues and three main theories involved. All of the theories have difficulties

with which to deal. A. View #1 1. This view is that the sons of God were the offspring of the godly line and the daughters of men were individuals from the ungodly line. 2. The problem with this view is that is does not explain the unique

nature of the offspring created from their union. Some have suggested that giants merely means tyrants and that mighty men means champions. However, it still does not explain B. View #2 1. This view is that the sons of God were fallen angelic beings who somehow interacted sexually

with women of the human race producing an unusual offspring. 2. The problem with this view is whether or not such a union between a human being and a spirit being is possible.
