Genesis Chapter 6

Outside of the Resurrection, the Creation account and the Flood account are the two most parts of the Bible attacked by the enemy, through liberal theology. This was predicted long ago in regards to both but, specifically, the Flood.

(2 Peter 3:3-8)
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. You did not know, fail to realize or refuse to acknowledge that the reason evolutionism was invented was to erase God, not explain where we came from at all. You miss the prophesy of UNIFORMITARIANISM right here. Tell me, does evolutionism predict the Bible?
For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

  • The present is not the key to the past in the earth.
  • The Flood is the key to the past.
  • The Bible is the key to the past. It says so.
  • This is not a set of false claims.

  1. There is no worldwide unconformity-period.
  2. There is no explanation from evolutionism/Uniformitarianism for this phenomenon.
  3. The sediments were obviously laid down under water rapidly, one after another, before hardening en situ, together as one, thinly layered with all sorts of stuff trapped and waiting to fossilize. Included in that are varves, turbidities, moon's tides, etc.
  4. There is no, none, zero, zilch nada mechanism on earth today nor in the concepts of evolutionism/Uniformitarianism to explain fossilization on the order (with complete exceptions to that order, magnitude, and types of the fossils in the record. It is a special circumstance with special conditions, naturally unrepeatable.
  5. A worldwide hydraulic catastrophe, including the fountains of the deep, the waters of the firmament, volcanism, etc. is the only, better explanation.
  6. This is undeniable from science, denied by evolutionists who, when they practice their craft, cease to do science and are like High Priests for Darwin, and Liars for Darwin as well.
  7. Most of the supposed geologic column is absent in layers, much in fossils, and is imaginary.

(Genesis 6:1)
And it came to pass,when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

In the command to be "fruitful and multiply", they were simply doing the "multiply" part

(Genesis 1:28)
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

(Genesis 6:2)
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
  • These are fallen angels by the context "of all which they chose" is basically a free-for-all The punishment for this when God had enough was swift, immediate, eternal

THE SONS OF GOD

(Job 1:6)
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

(Job 2:1)
Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.

(2 Peter 2:4)
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

(Jude 1:6)
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

(Genesis 6:3)
And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
  • God is merciful and, if anyone doubts that, they need only to see it here
  • Allowing people to continue in sin for yet another 120 years is giving people a chance to repent which the did not do, for 120 years straight
  • He is also flesh and man, in the flesh, in unity and great numbers, always tends towards evil

STRIVE, v.i. pret. strove; pp. striven.
[G. This word coincides in elements with drive, and the primary sense is nearly the same. See Rival.]
  1. To make efforts; to use exertions; to endeavor with earnestness; to labor hard; applicable to exertions of body or mind. A workman strives to perform his task before another; a student strives to excel his fellows in improvement.
    Was it for this that his ambition strove to equal Cesar first, and after Jove? Strive with me in your prayers to God for me. Rom 15. Strive to enter in at the strait gate. Luke 8.
  2. To contend; to contest; to struggle in opposition to another; to be in contention or dispute; followed by against or with before the person or thing opposed; as, strive against temptation; strive for the truth.
    My spirit shall not always strive with man. Gen 6.
  3. To oppose by contrariety of qualities.
    Now private pity strove with public hate, reason with rage, and eloquence with fate.
  4. To vie; to be comparable to; to emulate; to contend in excellence.
    Not that sweet grove of Daphne by Orontes, and the inspird Castalian spring, might with this paradise of Eden strive.

(Genesis 6:4)
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
  • Giant people's skeletons have been found all over the place on earth
  • This intermingling probably started at the beginning of the 120 years and continued through it to the end, up to the Flood ("in those days; and also after that")

(Genesis 6:5)
And GOD 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.
  • Man's heart, turned away from God, makes him proud to be evil, his mind twisted, his heart produce thoughts that are "only evil continually"
  • This is what "he also is flesh" means
(Genesis 6:6)
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
  • Think about how bad people have to be and how far they have to fall in order for God to be sad that He made man, the pinnacle of His Creation

Creeping; as a repent root.
REPENT', v.i. [L. re and paeniteo, from paena, pain. Gr. See Paint.]

  4. Applied to the Supreme Being, to change the course of providential dealings. Gen 6. Psa 106.
  5. In theology, to sorrow or be pained for sin, as a violation of God's holy law, a dishonor to his character and government, and the foulest ingratitude to a Being of infinite benevolence.
    Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Luke 13. Acts 3.
  6. REPENT', v.t
  7. To remember with sorrow; as, to repent rash words; to repent an injury done to a neighbor; to repent follies and vices. [See Repentance.]

(Genesis 6:7)
And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
  • Sin affects and permeates all sorts of creatures, just from the sin of man
  • Sin is universal and, while animals will not be judged or go to heaven or hell, that affect in this life is still present
(Genesis 3:17)
And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

(Romans 8:19-22)
For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

(Genesis 6:8)
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
  • But Noah........was different. Noah=Comfort
  • Noah found the same grace offered for 120 years to the rest of the earth, which they rejected wholesale
(Genesis 6:9)
These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
  • The generations is account of the days in which he lived
  • Noah found grace, was a just man, was perfect around the people of his time, precisely because Noah walked with God
(Genesis 6:10)
And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
  • These are the three people from whom all of the people on earth came
  • These three all had the same father, so we are all genetically the same from Noah
  • There is no mention of the word "race" in regards to people in the Bible, just an activity.
(Ecclesiastes 9:11)
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

(1 Corinthians 9:24)
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

(Hebrews 12:1)
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

(Genesis 6:11)
The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
  • There is the earth and the world, interchangeable, but interesting that the word "earth" is chosen, which includes the animals "as well
  • This surely calls for a global flood, since the effects of man's sin were global, and the earth was "filled" with violence
  • It is almost as though God is sparing them all from merely killing each other off anyways
  • Imagine violence filling the earth for 120 years, getting progressively worse each day
(Genesis 7:21-22)
And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

(Genesis 6:12) And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
  • Filled with violence, corrupt, all flesh corrupting his way...ripe for judgment
  • God sees everything, and cares, and spares those whom He wills
(Genesis 6:13)
And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
  • God, speaking to Noah, is thinking out loud
  • This is actually a prophecy, which is now fulfilled
  • Filled, acted out by billions of people
  • "Behold"...........see what I am about to do.
BEHO'LD, v.t. pret. and pp. beheld' [L.observo, from servo, to keep.]
  1. To fix the eyes upon; to See with attention; to observe with care.
    Behold the lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world. John 1.

  1. To fix the attention upon an object; to attend; to direct or fix the mind.
    Behold, I stand at the door and knock.
    Rev 3:20.
    The word is much used in this manner for exciting attention, or admiration. It is in the imperative mode, expressing command, or exhortation; and by no means a mere exclamation.
(Matthew 24:37-39)
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

(Genesis 6:14)
Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.
  • Gopher Wood is unknown to us today
  • Pitch is like tar, gum. No idea where Noah got or made it from
  • Pitch is also the same word for "atonement", and it would keep the waters of judgment out, as the blood keeps the judgment of our sin out
  • The ark with rooms for people, animals, cages, etc. Rooms for everyone and everything
  • There is no indication either way that Noah was a carpenter
(Genesis 6:15)
And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
  • So using an Egyptian cubit of 24 inches, that means 600 feet long, 100 feet wide, 60 feet high, and three decks with rooms.
  • Whatever size cubit, the ark was large enough for every kind of creature alive, plus room for food, plus extra for Noah and his family to live in.
  • The average size for a dinosaur would have been around the size of a sheep, or smaller if you count less larger ones that is widely held.
(Genesis 6:16)
A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.
  • So the window would obviously have an eave or overhang, and be closable to keep the rain out.
  • Or was it to be able to see the Flood and destruction outside?
(Genesis 6:17)
And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
  • All life on land, breathing, must die.
  • All flesh and every thing, no wiggle room, Global Flood
(Genesis 6:18)
But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.
  • Except the eight souls on the ark.
  • The key was being in the ark
  • This ark is a type of Christ
(1 Peter 3:20-21)
Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

(Genesis 6:19)
And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.
  • This is an unknown number of kinds of pairs of animals, just to re-populate the earth with
  • INTO the Ark is not the same as to bring TO the Ark
(Genesis 6:20)
Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.
  • Domesticated animals, creeping things, dinosaurs, insects, etc.
(Genesis 6:21)
And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
  • This means they will be eating, and going to the bathroom, which means some sort of moon pool, or opening to the bottom to the ocean
  • This food must not spoil, and sort of rules out 100% hibernation and aestivation
(Genesis 6:22)
Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
  • God said that Noah walked with Him
  • Think about how much "all that God commanded" was, and that it took 120 years straight to complete it, non-stop, without giving up, enduring the mocking of the world
  • In addition to building the ark, he also preached
(Hebrews 11:7)
By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

(1 Peter 3:20)
Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

(2 Peter 2:5)
And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
