Noah's genealogy all the way back to Adam was unstained by the angelic invasion and therefore there was still pure humanity on the earth.
The times were extremely violent and no doubt Satan sought to kill any humans who refused the universal genetic engineering policy that he had forced itself upon humanity.
This is the same thing Satan will seek to do in the Tribulation period, kill anyone who will not receive a number on their hand or forehead and comply to his new one world government, Rev 13:16-18.
God is to be commended and praised for His preservation of true humanity, for on the ark was Shem, the seed which would eventually produce the Messiah, TLJC - the virgin‑born Son of God.
The patience of God waited 120 years! During that period they received the most intensive Gospel proclamation in all of human history.
God kept waiting under the principle that grace always precedes judgment.
kibotou = a treasure chest or a wooden ship which was constructed of gopher or cyprus wood, used because it is a light but tough wood.
It was [300 cubits] 450 feet long [that's one and a half football fields], seventy-five feet wide, and forty-five feet high.
It had one material, gopher wood, representing the humanity of Christ.
Jesus Christ is the ark, He is the treasure chest.
COL 2:3 In Whom [Jesus Christ] are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Those who were not on the ark represent those who do not believe in Jesus Christ and are destroyed.
The bulkheads were secured with pitch or asphalt. The pitch used to secured the bulkheads is analogous to the work of Christ on the cross. It keeps out the waters of divine judgment.
There was only one set of plans that were used analogous to the PPOG for us.
There was also only one door in the ark, analogous to the fact that there is only one way to come to God and be saved and that is through TLJC, JOH 10:9 "I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved."
The one window is analogous to the fact there is only one objective after salvation, one perspective, divine viewpoint, Bible doctrine.
There were also three floors to the ark, which for us represent the concept of progress after salvation, S.S.E., S.A., S.M.
There is only one place of security in time of disaster, inside the ark. The ark represents to us the principle of eternal security and being in union with Christ.
All the believers inside the ark were not mature believers but they were blessed by being in the ark as we are blessed by being in Christ.
There was no judgment to those in the ark because ROM 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
This is NOT a reference to water baptism or baptismal regeneration because those who went under the water were destroyed.
Prin-Water was an instrument of destruction for unbelievers but physical deliverance for believers.
"corresponding to that" is the Greek word antitupon which means an anti-type or a copy or a representation of something. Actually it is a representation of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
The baptism which now saves us is the baptism of the Spirit not water baptism, EPH 4:5 There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism.
Union with Christ delivers each member of the Royal Family of God from any form of divine judgment!
For they were delivered from the catastrophe of the flood by being inside the ark, just as we are delivered from the lake of fire by being in union with Christ, due to the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
ISA 43:25 "I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins."
ISA 44:22 "I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud, And your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you."
The pledge of good conscience toward God begins with becoming a new spiritual species and a member of the royal family of God and understanding the implications of resurrection.
Since Jesus Christ ascended, He is now higher than all angels in a human body.
When our Lord Jesus Christ went to the fallen angels of Gen 6 in Tartarus He announced to them a victorious proclamation, that they had not succeeded in their great attempt to prevent Him from coming in the flesh as true humanity.
The Holy Spirit transferred our Lord from Paradise to Tartarus to make His proclamation.
Then our Lord gave those demons an entire dissertation on the dispensation of the hypostatic union, and how He had been judged for the sins of the world.
Resurrection is far greater than we can imagine for in resurrection, God makes no distinction between those who completely fail to execute the Christian way of life and those who succeed in executing the Christian way of life.
The believer's victory is the execution of the PPOG in time.
God's victory is the death and resurrection of the believer.
1Co 15:57 says but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
You can earn a victory by becoming a mature believer, executing the PPOG.
There's one victory you cannot have; it's a gift: the resurrection body.
God would give 120 years to this half-human race, under the principle that grace precedes judgment.
Prin-The saturation of evil on the earth was so great that the human race had reached a point of total self-destruction.
To protect the remnant of believers, God had to destroy the antediluvian civilization.
The only way that God could keep His divine promise was by destroying the corrupted part of the human race so that only true humanity would be preserved beyond the great catastrophe of a universal flood.
Prin-Noah and his family were the last human beings who had not been corrupted by the angelic infiltration that produced the Nephilim.
There must be a line of true humanity which extends from Noah to the true humanity of Jesus Christ.
"Eyes" are an anthropomorphism, ascribing to God human anatomy which He does not possess, used to express in human language a concept we can understand.
The phrase "Then Noah" reveals that this is the one place where Satan's plan did not succeed.
The Hebrew word for found is the Qal perfect of the verb matsa which means to attain, to arrive at something, to reach or to acquire.
One of the signs of manhood and maturity is the fact that a man controls his family, his family does not control him.
He's not the only one who made a mistake for one thing that is absolutely necessary and makes life very pleasant is for women to recognize authority; 1Pe 3:1-6, Gen 3:16, Eph 5:24, Col 3:18, 1Ti 2:12, 1Co 11:3.
For one of the great blessings in the original blessings of life is when God gave man the woman and a woman is designed to be a blessing.
The only ones that are mentioned in this passage are the men because God has designed society for men to run society.
Most males want to take absolutely no responsibility for the decisions that they make so you ladies should very selective if you still have the opportunity.
Righteous means that he believed in Jesus Christ! Blameless means that he was uncontaminated in his genealogy!
Gen 6:9 This is the family history of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man [a believer], blameless in his time [uncontaminated in his genealogy]; Noah walked with God [a mature believer].
1Pe 2:24 "He carried our sins in his own body on the cross."
Prin-God protects the believer fulfilling His will in time of extreme catastrophe.
