Genesis 6–The Fall of Man and the Rise of Noah

As stated yesterday, by the time Noah was born, the world was a complete mess.  God saw the state of the world and regretted ever creating men.  They had become a true eyesore and disease to the wonderful creation of God.  The most striking phrase was, “Every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.” 

The Evil of Men

What a distressing thought to the loving God and creator.  God then decided it was time to clean the slate and kill man and beast.  He simply could not take it anymore.  It was at that moment that God focused on Noah.  The grandson of Methusaleh and the son of Lamech found favor in God’s eyes.  It is the picture of a diamond resting in a box of coal.  It is obvious that God wrestled with the decision, But in the end, God, the Father, and Creator was willing to save mankind if even one would follow.  Noah was that one.


In our lives, God seeks and saves the lost world through the sacrifice of Christ.  As God said, “Every inclination of the hearts of men is only evil all the time.” But, as it says in Romans 5:8, “God demonstrated His love for us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”  God’s expectations of men never changed.  But through the saving power of Christ, we can stand out as Noah did as a new creation. The old is gone and the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17.

he world was beyond repair, But the love of God saw a savior in Noah. What followed was an absolutely amazing Journey.

God Bless You

When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with[a] humans forever, for they are mortal[b]; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.


This is an amazing Journey. I hope you will hear from the Lord, as you seek Him with your heart. Matthew 6:33
