Mrs. Noah & a Woman

Most women in Noah’s day, woman with wicked hearts, steered their ship off course.

“Mrs. Noah, you are not going to get on Noah’s boat, are you?” the woman taunted her. “I would leave my husband if he did anything that foolish.”

“Lenora, you do not understand. My family believes in God. God said, ‘Noah, build a big boat. People are so wicked that I will send rain. It will flood the earth.’ Yes, I will board that boat. I do not want to drown.”

“Do not be silly. It has never rained on the earth. We will not drown.”

“Oh, Lenora, I wish you believed God. He always speaks the truth.”

No one believed God except Noah’s family. Only eight people climbed in the boat. All the others drowned in a worldwide flood. God also saved two of every kind of animal. This boat was big and could easily accommodate that many baby animals, including the dinosaurs. Noah may have housed smaller animals in cages.

God punished mankind for their wickedness “Every imagination of the thoughts of his (her) heart was only evil continually.” God says in Proverbs 15:9, “The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.” Noah’s wife and her family boarded the ark by faith. They sailed and landed safely on Mount Ararat.
