Genesis 7:18- 8:15
After the 150 days God remembers Noah and all those that are in the ark. He brings forth wind that subsides the waters. Why not bring out the Sun? Why winds?
7th month 17th day of the month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ar’arat
The waters continue to lessen until the 10th month.
“In the 10th of the month on the first of the month, the tops of the mountains appeared.”
New beginnings supported by God. Mountains also show and is symbolizes as the power of God. Just as the Mountains are present and powerful so is the power of God. A mountain just is… you can not denying their energies their power as they stand silently and mighty.
Again at the end of 40 days Noah opens the window of the ark.
Why a raven and not any other bird that is better suited for the job. Why not the king of the sky’s a falcon or a eagle. Ravens are closely linked to death and the underworld
Then a dove… the bird of love. He puts his own hand out for the dove when the dove finds no resting spot for its feet.
7 days he waits until he sends the dove out again and a fresh olive leaf is stuck to his bill this time when he returns. Noah waits another 7 days but this time the dove does not return.
601st year in the 1st month on the 1st day of the month on the 27th day of the month the earth dries off. and until finally god speaks to Noah to allow him and all that are within the ark out.
Would you have the patience to wait for Gods word to allow you out? Would his ancestors other then Enoch of had the patience or his ancestor Cain had the patience to wait? Theirs a reason why those he favors or those that walk with him are chosen to do his work.
Once Noah comes out of the ark he builds an alter to Jehovah on which he puts burnt offerings. What are burnt offerings???? Items of mother nature perhaps that can be burnt at this alter. ( Yet women are condemned for such practices or spiritual beliefs of others that one chooses to impose hate apon in the name of the bible.)
“And Jehovah began to smell a restful odor, and so Jehovah said in his heart: Never again shall I call down evil upon the ground on man’s account, because the inclination of the heart of man is bad from his youth up; and never again shall I deal every living thing a blow just as I have done.”
Noah’s incense reaches God.
