Genesis 4:27 – 12

Read Genesis 4:27 – 12

Notable Verses:

  • God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.” (Genesis 6:12-13)
  • But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.” (Genesis 11:5-6)

Main Ideas:

  • God does not like violence.
  • God protects His people.

Interesting Concepts:

Noah’s Ark: The modern concept of species unlikely meant the same thing as, “kind,” in the Bible. The idea of Noah having all the animals needed to repopulate the earth after the flood seems farfetched until one considers the fact that sea animals remained safe from the flood. Animals in eggs could have survived, too. Not to mention the likelihood of female animals being pregnant before they boarded the ark. Since Noah’s Ark is estimated to have been the size of a modern ocean liner three stories high, many animals could have fit on it. (Hudson, 12) Also, there were seven pairs of each ‘clean’ animal and two pairs of each ‘unclean’ animal. (Genesis 7:2-3) Instead of just one pair of each type.

The Faithful Remnant: God’s desire to save Noah and his family demonstrates a theme common throughout the Bible: God’s desire to save a portion of humanity that remains faithful to Him and His commandments. (Knight, 16)

Bible Words:

  • The word rainbow means battle bow in Hebrew.

And that concludes the summary of my in-depth Bible study.

  1. Good stuff, Rae. God does always keep a remnant. He loves His creation,including man, although we have been so disobedient. He still loves us! I look forward to more!

    Great things to pay very close attention to, As many do not understand that this is mirrored in today’s world and time, though we are in a new covenant with Jesus, of who is the second Adam to be amongst humanity. He did come to fulfill the laws of the old testament covenant. But not abolish it, and when we pray thy kingdom come thy will be done… This is not a parable, but a parallel between heaven and earth..and since God is in the infinite and eternal, and we live under the governing of time per the fall of man, I truly believe that we should have some understanding of all of knowledge that was meant for us. And to truly believe and hold fast to faith love God, Jesus, and learn all that we can through instruction of the holy spirit of God.. right now in the heavens I fully believe that there is a battle being fought in the heavens for humanity, and I mean that literally. I have been awakened out of a slumber since around January 27th 2015 and have witnessed some things that would cause a secular doctor to lock one up if they were told these things lol.. but very real occurrences of both good and evil.. and at the present since around late September,2016 there has been something very evil and chaotic circling the heavens that is very deep giant voiced that the dogs start barking at, about 1 or so minutes after I hear it?? And after this happens sirens start going, car alarms go off and people start arguing,fighting. I thought I was loosing my marbles until my 8 yr old asked me what is that rumbling that almost sounds like a voic?? so then I recorded it and,it is very faint, but it’s there.
    Yet no one else can hear it that I’m aware of.. im not to positive about what it is exactly, but I felt an impression of holy spirit and revelations I believe 17 or 19?? Where jezebel is spoken of.. and no sooner was there a female voice arguing with a deep male voice.. and I promise you I am not crazy,or playing.. but if it were accurate and at that point of revelations.. I almost always ask, and remind myself that we live within time, and God is not bound to time, but in the infinite and eternal.. mind blowing
    . But after all that,only he knows the exact time.. but yet we are just a minute piece of one uncomfortable eternal fabric, and what if since the kingdom of heaven is within, it is us that are awakened to the truth and we are merging into the reality of heaven on earth? I am sorry I have offended anyone.. these are just thoughts, and things that only God knows.. And has answers to. But in essence we may be mirrored or reflective of heaven? Genesis chapter 1, and John 1 makes me think of this as well. The light shine in the darkness,yet the darkness perceived it not. God bless you all…

  3. Pete, thank you so much for your comment. I love the concept of God’s remnant because it shows He is consistent and persistent throughout time. Knowing that is a huge comfort. Again, thank you for your words. Be blessed brother!

    Perhaps the motto of the first story is to have a good umbrella, and the motto of the second is that humans shouldn’t talk so much rubbish!? 😉

  5. How can you conclude that “God does not like violence” and “God protects His people”? His solution to people being violent and cooperating by having a single language (a non-violent act), by killing everyone but one family. That’s super-violent and definitely not protecting people. Why not just change their minds and behavior? Evidently He’s not all-powerful.

    And what’s the deal with demanding perfect obedience? No healthy parent would demand complete obedience of their children because that would make them dependent and vulnerable to every con artist who came along. It has been said “Only parents who expect to live forever should have perfectly obedient children.” You may argue that God does live forever. But why would He create humans with a brain who He doesn’t want to think for themselves? I know the world was supposedly “perfect” when Adam and Eve didn’t know right from wrong. I’ve never understood how they could be held responsible and punished when they didn’t know right from wrong. So the “perfect” human is continually obedient without question? How do you decide what perfect obedience is without thinking about it?

    By the way, no boat, even the largest ocean liner, could hold all the species on earth (even ignoring sea animals), and all their food and waste. The story is a fable found in several other cultures long before the biblical version. What do you think the mythological point is? Something more than just blind obedience?
