Tag Archive: Noah

How many times have you heard someone say this?:

‘In Genesis 6, it talks about how Noah and his family were the only ones without corrupted seed.’

I’m going to address this, because it’s something we’re hearing virtually every day.  But not everything that’s being said is true.  God’s WORD however, IS true.

In the Bible, it is very typical for something to be REPEATED several times, to reinforce the meaning.  (While those who come up with false doctrines latch onto seemingly vague and isolated phrases.)

Let’s look closely at the verse from which this misunderstanding springs:

 ‘These [are] the generations 8435 of Noah 5146: Noah 5146 was a just 6662 man 376 [and] perfect 8549 in his generations 1755, [and] Noah 5146 walked 1980 with God 430.’  (Genesis 6:9)

(The next verses go on to list the generations (Strong’s H8435=descendants) of Noah.)


What is this verse trying to convey?  The meaning is stated 3 times, in 3 ways, in the verse:

  1. Noah was a just man (H6662)
  2. Noah was perfect in his generations (H8549, H1755)
  3. Noah walked with God


It’s stated again in Genesis 7:1

 ‘And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen RIGHTEOUS before me in this GENERATION 1755.’


Despite what we are being told, Genesis 6:9 is telling us that Noah was RIGHTEOUS–not genetically perfect!!  This is also restated in Ezekiel 14:14 and 14:20.

Let’s look at the definitions of the words used in Genesis 6:9 . . .


Just (H6662)

1) just, lawful, righteous

…a) just, righteous (in government)

…b) just, right (in one’s cause)

…c) just, righteous (in conduct and character)

…d) righteous (as justified and vindicated by God)

…e) right, correct, lawful


Perfect (H8549)

1) complete, whole, entire, sound

…a) complete, whole, entire

…b) whole, sound, healthful

…c) complete, entire (of time)

…d) sound, wholesome, unimpaired, innocent, having integrity

…e) what is complete or entirely in accord with truth and fact (neuter adj/subst)


Generations (H1755)

1) period, generation, habitation, dwelling

…a) period, age, generation (period of time)

…b) generation (those living during a period)

…c) generation (characterised by quality, condition, class of men)

…d) dwelling-place, habitation


Hopefully you can see, after reading the definitions above, that to say that ‘Noah was perfect in his generations’ meant he was genetically perfect, is quite a stretch.  It would also be taking these few words completely out of the context of the verse they’re in . . . and of everything else that is ever said about Noah in the whole Bible!


There should be no room left for doubt, after 2 Peter 2:5, that Noah was saved because of RIGHTEOUSNESS, not genetics!!

 ‘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’


I urge you all to pray about this, because once we have accepted a false teaching, it can be hard to unlearn.  Pray that the Lord would show you, and that if what I’ve said is true–and what you’ve heard is wrong–that God would erase it from your mind and replace it with His truth.

Amazing video proof of the discovery (over 30 years ago) of  Noah’s Ark.


In light of all the dark warnings that are going forth, I hope this video will be an encouragement to you, and a confirmation of God’s faithfulness.



We Will Turn The World Upside Down!!

Was Judas Set Up . . . By Jesus?

God created everything from ‘nothing’, yet it was formed of some substance.  That substance was not pure.  It was seeded with corruption.  Everything created from that substance had the ability to either mature into evil–which would eventually consume all good within it–or to mature into good.

When God created darkness and light, He ‘saw that the light was good.’  When he created the land and the seas; the plants; the stars, the sun and the moon; the birds and the animals; He ‘saw that [His creation] was good’.  And when He created man He ‘saw that [His creation] was very good’

Mankind has always interpreted that as ‘perfect’.  God’s creation was not perfect, because the substance from which He formed it was not perfect.  Neither was the Garden of Eden perfect.  But it was a place of protection.  A place of God’s absolute provision, peace, and safety.  Similarly, God’s promise to the Israelites was protection, provision, peace, and safety.

God’s hope for mankind was that they would choose Him, and be content with that–that they would not even learn about evil, much less experience it.  But, through disobedience, sin entered the world.

By the time of Noah, sin had become so rampant that only eight souls could be spared.  By the time of Abraham, only one man sought Him.  Years later, when God led the Israelites out of Egypt, He hoped they had seen enough evil that they would leave it behind and let Him lead them in the paths of righteousness.  But that was not to be.  Most of them died in the wilderness.

The real promise of the ‘Promised Land’ was that it would be a place set apart, a land of abundance, protection, peace, safety, and the presence of God–but first, evil had to be conquered.

The land itself was filled with evil–evil brought about by its inhabitants worshiping the spirit beings (principalities) that God had appointed to oversee the different areas of the earth.  Along with man, angels fell.

It was God’s plan to carve out a small place on the earth, for Himself and His people–a place to which others could come, who wanted to know Him.  God directed His people to purge the land of its inhabitants, because they were consumed with evil, and His angels did war in the spiritual realm, binding the principalities of darkness and preparing a place where He could reside.

There He lived among them.  The land flourished and the people became prosperous.  He gave them guidelines to live by, so that evil could not gain a foothold in their hearts.  He promised His protection, whenever evil would come against them.  But He could not abide evil within them.  God’s war has always been a war against evil, in whatever form it takes.  Woe to him who harbors evil inside himself, for he has made himself an enemy of God.

And there He lived among them–those whom  He had chosen to protect from the evil outside their borders, those whom He would teach to overcome the evil within themselves.

He allowed the light that emanated from that place to provoke the forces of darkness and evil to wrath.  Driven mad by their rage, they would come against the place of light, and the people of God, and He would execute judgment against them.  This is how He continually purged the land of evil.

Yet, even His people continued to gravitate towards sin, so He let them go into captivity.  They preferred evil, so He gave them over to it.  Too few chose righteousness, and they invited the gods of the surrounding nations into their land.  Eventually He withdrew His presence.

Eventually people covered the face of the earth, and sin abounded.  The time had come to send His son–as savior, and ambassador of the good news about Him.  Jesus came and sought out eleven men in whom He saw the desire for righteousness–and one more, who was locked in a life and death struggle with the powers of darkness, and needed His personal intervention.  He would teach them to overcome the evil within, and to battle the evil without.

He would not promise them His abundance and protection in the earthly realm, because shielding men from evil had only caused them to become complacent and proud.  He would not promise them peace, because it would be their duty to confront evil and battle it head on.  He would not promise them safety, because their motivations in serving Him must be pure. But He would promise them His presence, and power to overcome.

It would be their task to seek out others and teach them, and those would eventually go on to do the same.  He told them to go to the four corners of the earth to share the truth about good and evil, and how to be reconciled to Him.  And He postponed judgment on those who persecuted them, because He wanted to sift the souls and intentions of all men.

Again, as He had done with the nation of Israel, He used the light that emanated from them (‘the Church’ aka ‘Christians’) to provoke the forces of  evil to wrath.  Driven mad by their rage, they would come against the ambassadors of truth,  the people of God, and He would store up judgment against them.  This is how He would finally purge the earth of evil.

We are living in the final days of this part of God’s plan.  The forces of evil are rising up once again, to come against all of God’s people, in the hopes of erasing His presence, His name, and His people from the earth forever.

And, as He always has, God will let His light shine forth to infuriate the forces of darkness into attacking.  This will bring judgment upon them–but this time, judgment will be quick in coming!
