Genesis chapter 7 bible study

Genesis chapter 7 bible study is the study of the account of the great flood that God sent to destroy the earth because of the wickedness of its inhabitants. God chose Noah, a righteous man, to build an ark and bring aboard two of every kind of animal, as well as his own family, to survive the flood.

The chapter begins with God instructing Noah to enter the ark, along with his family and the animals, because a great flood was coming to cleanse the earth of its wickedness. Noah obeyed God’s command and entered the ark with his family and the animals, and God closed the door behind them.

The rains then began to fall and the waters from the earth and the sky merged, causing a great flood that covered the earth for forty days and forty nights. The waters rose so high that all of the high mountains were covered, and all living creatures on the earth were wiped out.

The ark floated on the waters for 150 days, and then the waters began to recede. After another forty days, the ark came to rest on the top of a mountain, and the waters continued to recede until the earth was dry again.

God then made a covenant with Noah, promising never to send a flood like that again, and as a sign of this promise, he set a rainbow in the sky.

In this chapter, we see the faithfulness of Noah as he obeyed God’s command to build the ark and enter it with his family and the animals. We also see God’s faithfulness in preserving Noah and his family, as well as a selection of the earth’s animals, through the flood. And we see God’s mercy in making a covenant with Noah and promising never to send a flood like that again.

This chapter teaches us the importance of obedience to God and the consequences of disobedience, as well as the faithfulness and mercy of God.

 
Shalom.
