Noah: The Line Preserved

As time passed more and more people on the earth began to follow the way of the serpent instead of the way of God.  This made God angry and he decided to send a flood to destroy the people of the earth.  However, there was one man named Noah who followed the way of God with his family.  God told Noah that he was to build a huge boat, called an ark, in order to save himself and his family.  So Noah obeyed God and started to build.  

 

The people around Noah made fun of him and thought he was crazy.  It had never rained before and no one could see how this huge boat would help Noah.  Since they followed the way of the serpent they did not believe that God planned to cover the earth with water.

 

Finally Noah finished the ark.  God told him to bring two of every type of animal into the ark.  Noah obeyed and he and his family got on the boat full of stinky animals, trusting God.  When they got inside they couldn’t close the door so God closed it for them.  Then it started to rain.  And rain.  And rain.  It rained for 40 days and 40 nights, until the whole world was covered in water.  When the flood water went down and Noah and his family could finally get out of the ark all the people who were following the way of the serpent had died.  Only those following the way of God, Noah and his family, were saved from the flood.  God promised Noah that he wasn’t going to destroy the world again, but next time was going to send a Son to save it from the way of the serpent.  As he made this promise he sent a rainbow in the sky to remind his people of his great plan to save his people.
