Going Deeper into God’s Covenant with Noah: The Promise

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 9) We all learned in vacation Bible school that God has given us a token of His covenant. That token was the rainbow. We will think about that marvelous sign from God in greater depth in an upcoming article. We begin this time by looking at Genesis 8:20-22 (NASB): Then Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. The [...]

The Flood Subsides: Covenant

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 8) We know what God said in His heart because it is revealed right here in the Scripture. Here is what He "said in His heart" after the conclusion of the flood: I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. While the earth remaineth, seedtime [...]

The Noahic Flood and God’s Sovereign Plan

(Read Part 3) We have come to the concluding point in in our study of the Noahic flood. Many readers of Genesis 1 have made the observation that “God saw . . . that . . . was good” occurs in the record for every one of the six days of creation except the second (1:4, 10, 18, 21, 25). The final occurrence of the statement changes to “very good” and covers all six days (1:31). Why did God forego that evaluative judgment [...]

The Flood Subsides: Sacrifice

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 7) And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar (Gen. 8:20). We always need to be careful not to build a doctrine out of a historical account. This account tells us what Noah did, and what Noah did may or may not be what I should do. Later on, in fact, we will see Noah behave [...]

Peter’s Revelation Concerning the Noahic Flood

(Read Part 2) Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so (Gen. 1:7). A significant Biblical text regarding the Noahic flood appears in the Apostle Peter’s second epistle: For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, through which the world at that time [...]

The Flood Subsides: Remembrance

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 6) We have been walking through the Genesis account leading up to the flood, and have come in our study to Genesis 8. As we begin, let me ask you this question: Do you ever feel forgotten? Have you ever felt like God had forgotten you? When we come to this point in the text—as far as we know—Noah had not heard from God for nearly a year during the events of the flood, since [...]

Noah’s Obedience: Remaining in God’s Protection

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 5) Noah had more than 100 years of experience in obedience by the time he went in the ark with his family and the animals that God had instructed him to take in order to keep all the kinds that He had created alive during the flood year. These were difficult things to do, as we have seen, yet Noah was faithful to do them. What an example he is for us who may [...]

Noah’s Obedience: Responding to God’s Instructions

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 4) Having considered the reasons for the flood, we now turn our attention to the man Noah and the obedience to God's instructions that he practiced in the days before the flood. And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of [...]

The Saving Work of God

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 3) We ended our last discussion by introducing a bold notion regarding the flood of Noah's day—namely, that destroying work of God actually turned out to be the saving work of God. We continue in our study today by looking first at Genesis 6:15, which gives us the dimensions that God provided for Noah to use in building the ark: And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the [...]

The Destroying Work of God

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 2) We thought previously in this series about the family tree of Noah. We considered his great-grandfather Enoch, grandfather Methuselah, father Lamech and then Noah himself. Think about this: For Noah to learn about the past, all that he had to do was talk to his grandfather Methuselah, who lived 969 years (Gen. 5:27) and knew Adam personally. In fact, the lives of these two men (Adam and Methuselah) spanned all of history [...]
