Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen – Hebrews 11:1. It is a deliberate confidence in God. Faith is needed to believe God who we cannot see.
Noah was the son of Lamech. As many began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw their beauty, they came down to earth to them. Children borne to them were mighty.
Wickedness sprang on earth. The thought of men were only evil. God saw this and regretted that he created man on the earth. He decided to destroy man and the beast in it. Noah and his generation were the only righteous people God found on the earth at that time. Noah found favour in the sight of God.
God was annoyed with wickedness and the evil doing of mankind on earth.
God told Noah that he was determined to wipe out all flesh, for the earth was filled with violence. He asked Noah to build an ark with gopher wood for himself and his generation, as he would destroy the earth and everything in it with a flood.
Noah exhibited the right actions of faith, built an ark as been warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear for seeing his household.
God established a covenant with Noah, his wife, sons and daughters-in-law. They entered the ark with every living thing of all flesh, male and female.
On the seventh day, God sent rain for forty days and forty nights. Everything on earth was destroyed except those in the ark.
