Wednesday’s Word: The Flood Arrives

So, we always heard in Sunday School that the “animals, they came on , they came on by twosies, twosies,” and into the ark went the “elephants and kagaroosies, roosies,” but is that really the way it went down?

Hear Genesis 7 today for another look at that famous flood!

    An impressive story that I appreciate and get something different from each time I hear/read it. This time, as a guy who’s in the over 50 crowd, I am impressed that Noah was 600 when the waters came.

    Also, I am remembering one more reason to be close to and fear the Lord: The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him. Ps 25:14 reminds us, “The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.” Certainly Noah is one who was close to and feared the Lord.

    Thank you for sharing this important story.


    • Hi Bill,

      Thanks for reading, and your comment! You might like a Noah “fun fact” I heard one time: Did you know that the Chinese character for ‘salvation’ is eight people in a boat? Heard that at Bible Study Fellowship, from the teaching leader.

      By the way, I loved what you said about reading things differently at different ages. So true! A few years ago, I re-read my favorite book from when I was 16, the one that Blair Tenney and I sat reading together in her bean bag chair in her cute attic bedroom, the book Katherine, by Anya Seton. The character is also about 16 at the beginning of the book, and I loved everything about it. The last time I read it, I was leaning toward middle age, when I was the same age as the character at the end of the book. Wow, did I relate to the book differently this time! I cringed at the character’s immaturity at parts, and was crushed by the tragedies and poor decisions that followed in her wake.

      Thank you, too, for sharing that wonderful verse. Don’t you love the idea that God would confide in you? Pretty cool.

      A wonderful Thanksgiving to you and your family!
