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 [...]

What Actually Happened at the Flood?

(Read Part 1) We are continuing our study that highlights 22 reasons from the flood narrative’s text that lead to the conclusion that the account describes a global flood, rather than a local, or even regional, flood. We are considering each reason in the order of its appearance in the text. Last time we looked at the first 13 reasons, and in this article will think about nine more such reasons. The Biblical account claims that "the waters prevailed exceedingly" and "covered" "all the high hills under the whole heaven" [...]

What Does the Text Actually Teach?

Does the Scripture depict Noah’s flood as a global event or as a local event? What sort of Biblical evidence supports a global flood as opposed to a local flood? This study highlights just 22 reasons from the flood narrative’s text that lead to the conclusion that the account describes a global flood, rather than a local, or even regional, flood. The following list presents each reason in the order of its appearance in the text. Genesis 6:5–7 (see also 6:11–12; 7:1) reveals [...]

The Man God Used

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 1) In Genesis 6:3, God is giving mankind one final warning. There is a long period of warning—120 years—but, nevertheless, it is final. What is it that has brought on this situation? It is, of course, described in Genesis 6:1-2: And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were [...]

You’ve Been Warned!

(Read Part 3) The voice of God reached the ears of Noah declaring the most severe judgment ever proclaimed since God created the universe in a literal six-day period (cf. Gen. 1:31). God instructed Noah by providing, in exact detail, the specifications of a massive ark that would provide the only escape from guaranteed judgment. Think about it—out of millions of people, only eight survived the catastrophic judgment of the universal flood. Why were these few people the only ones that God saved? [...]
