Genesis 8:18 "And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him: Gen 8:19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark." Although there is no clear mention in Scripture (to my knowledge) that the flood, "cleansed" the earth from.... Genesis 6:5 "And Yahweh saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." There are some wonderful truths revealed in the flood. My thoughts are on what the flood accomplished. My thoughts are centered on how wicked that man had become. Lets start with blood. The following is what happened.... Genesis 4:8 "And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. Gen 4:9 And Yahweh said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? Gen 4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground." The murder of Abel by his brother Cain was the second attack on the human race that Elohim had created to ultimately bring about salvation thru Messiah Jesus. I can see here, the early attempts of the enemy of our souls, Satan, to eliminate the godly line of men in who our Savior and Israel's Messiah would be born. Satan's plan was to eliminate all believers in Elohim (Father EL, Son Yahshua, and Holy Spirit Ruah ha` Qudesh) The Names for the Trinity are from the Paleo Hebrew which is the oldest language given to man from YHWH when He wrote the 10 Commandments, given to Moses. Then we progress to Genesis 6. This is a very controversial portion of Scripture, no wonder, Satan has always been busy, hiding his plan to create his own race of wickedness to take over what Yahweh had created. Think about it my friends. Whether you believe Genesis six is true or not, Enoch said it was true, and he was so prized in Elohim, he was taken to Heaven (Shawmaeen) like no other. I'll take Enoch's word over man's any day....Satan is very clever in hiding Truth right up to today. Thank and Praise Elohim for preserving His godly line thru Noah.... Genesis 6:8 "But Noah found grace in the eyes of Yahweh. Noah and the Flood 6:9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with Elohim." Please notice that this Scripture says, "Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations."....Elohim knew of Satan's plan, even thoughts and plans, even though he hadn't committed them yet. As a result, all thru Noah generations, Elohim hedged up Noah's forefathers so that evil could not destroy this line of godly ones so that Yahshua, our salvation could be realized. Having said all this, the flood completely cleansed the earth. Water cleanses, as does the blood of Yahshua. After the flood, Satan is defeated....Can man keep it clean?
