Welcome.  Let’s begin our study of Noah’s Ark.

Genesis 6:5  The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclina-
tion of the thoughts of his heart was only for evil all the time.

Genesis 6:6-8  The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain.  So
the Lord said, “I will wipe mankind whom I have created, from the face of the earth-  men and animals,
and creatures that move along the ground, and the birds of the air-  for I am grieved that I have made
them.  But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

Genesis 6:13-17  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.  So make yourself an ark of cypress 
wood;  make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.  This is how you are to build it:  The ark 
is to be 300 cubits (450 feet) long, 50 cubits (75 feet) wide and 30 cubits (45 feet) high.  Make a roof
for it and finish the ark to within 18 inches of the top.  Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, 
middle and upper decks.  I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens,
every creature that has the breath of life in it.  Everything on earth will perish.

Because of man’s great wickedness, God decided to destroy man, the animals and all of the earth.  He is starting
over.

Because God found favor with Noah, he instructed Noah to build an ark the length of 1.5 football fields with three
levels.

Next week, we begin to study the animals that came upon the ark.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
