The story of Noah’s Ark

After sharing the oil painting of Noah’s Ark by Giovanni yesterday, I’m sharing the story of Noah’s Ark today.  God had seen the wickedness of man & was grieved and “His heart was filled with pain” we’re told in Genesis 6:6.  God also told Noah that He was going to bring a flood upon the earth to “destroy all life under the heavens”, except for Noah and his family and 2 of every kind of creatures that would go into the ark.

In chapter 9 of Genesis, God makes a covenant with Noah and all living creatures that He called “a covenant for all generations to come” (v.12).

The covenant that God made is the rainbow, as He told Noah:  “Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”  Gen. 9:16 NIV
