God told Noah, “I myself am going to send floodwaters on this earth to destroy every living thing that breathes. Everything on earth will die. You are to build a large Ark.” Then God added, “You and your wife and your sons and their wives will all enter the Ark. You will also take aboard a male and female of every kind of animal, seven pairs of every kind of flying creature, and two of every kind of animal that scurries along the ground. Bring seven pairs of the clean animals you will use for sacrifices, like cows, sheep, goats and rams. Oh, and Noah, be sure to take on board enough food for your family and all the animals.”

This sounded like a huge, impossible assignment, but do you know what we read? “Noah did everything exactly as God had commanded him!”

What Was an Ark?

An ark was a container used to preserve life. It was not a ship that needed an engine to get from one place to another. It was a large, long ship whose job was simply to float and keep its cargo safe.

The purpose was clear.
The person was in place.
God shared His great plan,
To judge the human race.

An Ark would be built.
God had specifics in mind.
So next came the preparation,
That would spare mankind.
