<< Matthew 24:37 >>



  • Luke 17:26-27
    “ Remember how it was in the days of Noah. It will be the same when the Son of Man comes.People were eating and drinking. They were getting married. They were giving their daughters to be married. They did all those things right up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
  • Hebrews 11:7
    Noah had faith. So he built an ark to save his family. He built it because of his great respect for God. God had warned him about things that could not yet be seen. Because of his faith Noah showed the world that it was guilty. Because of his faith he was considered right with God.
  • 2 Peter 3 6
    The waters also flooded the world of that time. And so they destroyed the world.
  • Genesis 6:1-7
    There began to be many human beings on the earth. And daughters were born to them.The sons of God saw that the daughters of human beings were beautiful. So they married any of them they chose.Then the Lord said,“ My Spirit will not struggle with human beings forever. They will have only 120 years to live.”The Nephilim were on the earth in those days. That was when the sons of God went to the daughters of human beings. Children were born to them. The Nephilim were famous heroes who lived long ago. Nephilim were also on the earth later on.The Lord saw how bad the sins of everyone on earth had become. They only thought about evil things.The Lord was very sad that he had made human beings on the earth. His heart was filled with pain.So the Lord said,“ I created human beings, but I will wipe them out. I will also destroy the animals, the birds in the sky, and the creatures that move along the ground. I am very sad that I have made human beings.”
  • 2 Peter 2 5
    God did not spare the world’s ungodly people long ago. He brought the flood on them. But Noah preached about the right way to live. God kept him safe. He also saved seven others.
  • 1 Peter 3 20-1 Peter 3 21
    Long ago these spirits did not obey. That was when God was patient while Noah was building the ark. And only a few people went into the ark. In fact, there were only eight. Those eight people were saved through water.The water of the flood is a picture. It is a picture of the baptism that now saves you too. This baptism has nothing to do with removing dirt from your body. Instead, it promises God that you will keep a clear sense of right and wrong. This baptism saves you by the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead.
  • Job 22:15-17
    Will you stay on the old path that sinful people have walked on?They were carried off even before they died. Their foundations were washed away by a flood.They said to God,‘ Leave us alone! What can you do to us, you Mighty One?’
  • Genesis 7:6-23
    Noah was 600 years old when the flood came on the earth.He and his sons entered the ark. His wife and his sons’ wives went with them. They entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood.Male and female pairs of“ clean” animals and pairs of animals that were not“ clean” came to Noah. So did male and female pairs of birds and of all the creatures that move along the ground.All of them came to Noah and entered the ark. Everything happened just as God had commanded Noah.After seven days the flood came on the earth.Noah was 600 years old. It was the 17th day of the second month of the year. On that day all of the springs at the bottom of the oceans burst open. God opened the windows of the sky.Rain fell on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights.On that same day Noah entered the ark together with his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth. Noah’s wife and the wives of his three sons also entered it.They had every kind of wild animal with them. They had every kind of livestock, creature that moves along the ground, and bird that flies.Pairs of all living creatures that breathe came to Noah and entered the ark.The animals going in were male and female of every living thing. Everything happened just as God had commanded Noah. Then the Lord shut him in.For 40 days the flood kept coming on the earth. As the waters rose higher, they lifted the ark high above the earth.The waters rose higher and higher on the earth. And the ark floated on the water.The waters rose on the earth until all the high mountains under the entire sky were covered.The waters continued to rise until they covered the mountains by more than 20 feet.Every living thing that moved on land died. The birds, the livestock and the wild animals died. All of the creatures that fill the earth also died. And so did every human being.Every breathing thing on dry land died.Every living thing on earth was wiped out. People and animals were destroyed. The creatures that move along the ground and the birds in the sky were wiped out. Everything on earth was destroyed. Only Noah and those with him in the ark were left.
  • Matthew 24:39
    They knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be when the Son of Man comes.
