Genesis – God and Noah
Genesis 6 begins with the statement that the divine ones took wives from among the daughters that pleased them. In this chapter, you also have the reference to H’Nfilim [Nephilim] who appeared on earth during that time and later – they appeared on earth when the divine ones were cohabitating with those daughters of men. The Nephilim were considered heroes.
During that time, Noah found favor with God and is told to stay in the ark while the floodgates open and the creatures on earth “perish” due to the rain and flood. Noah had three sons [Shem, Ham, and Japheth] that were given the task to also stay in the ark during the flood. Noah is also given the task from God to shut all the beasts of the earth inside the ark – the creatures ranged from birds, cattle, and two of every kind that had the breath of life within them and were clean.
If you are ever in the situation where a storm comes, you are not alone. During Noah’s flood that Noah stayed in the ark for…it is stated that the rain and floodgates opened for 40 days and 40 nights. The Holy One then makes the statement that never again will the creatures of earth be destroyed through a flood nor will mankind and creatures of God be completely destroyed. God makes the covenant with Noah and all living creatures that never again will there be a flood to destroy all flesh and that God’s bow is set in the clouds as a sign to remember the covenant between God and all flesh.
