Then the Lord ALMIGHTY said to Noah, “I have seen that you are a good man, even among the evil people of this time. Therefore gather your family, and all of you go into the vessel. Get seven pairs (seven males and seven females) of every kind of clean animal.
And get one pair (one male and one female) of every other animal on the earth. Lead all these animals into the vessel with you. Do the same with the birds of the air. Get seven pairs (seven males and seven females) of all the birds.
This will allow all these animals to continue living on the earth after the other animals are destroyed. Seven days from now, I will send a lot of rain on the earth. It will rain for 40 days and 40 nights, and I will wipe everything off the face of the earth. I will destroy everything I made.”
Noah 600 Years of Age @ Time of Flood
Noah did everything the Lord ALMIGHTY commanded him to do. As far as the time period, Noah was 600 years old at the time the rains came. He and his family went into the boat to be delivered from the flood. His wife and his sons and their wives were on the boat with him.
In this way God ALMIGHTY wiped the earth clean—HE destroyed every living thing on the earth—every human, every animal, everything that crawls, and every bird. All that was left was Noah and his family and the animals that were with him in the boat.
From Genesis chapter 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.
2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
5 And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.
6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.
24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
It had to be very important for the ALMIGHTY to wipe away everything that HE made, especially when HE said it was “Very good,” after the sixth day. It was; this piece of history is recorded in many documents of the nations, especially those nations of the east.
We shall also learn yet another vital principle; the ALMIGHTY must and will fulfill HIS words! That means plainly, if and when the ALMIGHTY (the WORD of GOD) speaks, HE will fulfill. Therefore, as we read in scriptures, “Thus saith the LORD,” whatever follows will be done! Amen.
