The events that followed the Flood prove that the seeds of sin in human nature are still developing. He was an upright and blameless man, and hed he walked with God as Enoch did before him. Noah found grace in God’s eyes. The sons of Noah and his most outstanding descendants who came out of the ark were: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
Ham is the Father of Canaan. These were Noah’s three sons in number, and from them, people spread throughout the whole earth. God’s offer of grace, however, was directed not only to Noah, but it was also for “his house,” for his wife and children. “You and your house” is a common phrase in the Bible. God wants to save not only individuals but houses and families.
The biblical text then tells us that “Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years. Reading this article, you will learn more things about Noah’s descendants and his son’s connections with Enoch.
How did God save Noah and his family?
“And the Lord said to Noah, ‘Get into the ark, you and all your house; for after seven days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe out from the face of the earth all the works that I have done.’ After the seven days, the waters of the Flood came upon the earth” (Genesis 7:1-4)
God saved Noah and his family by telling Noah to take his family in the ark during the Flood. And after the great episode of a flood, God remembered Noah and all those who were with him in the ark, and God brought a wind upon the earth, and the waters stayed.
The springs of the deep closed up, the rain stopped, and the water began to run down. Just five months after the Flood began, the ship came to rest on Mount Ararat. Noah finally opened the window of the ark, and let out the first herald, the raven, who, though flying, did not give exact news of the state of the earth.
What happened to Noah and his family after the Flood?
The Flood is mentioned in ancient Chaldean, Chinese, Mexican, Phoenician, Egyptian and Greek writings. And among many peoples, who did not know the technique of writing. The knowledge of the Flood remained by tradition, it was transmitted orally from Father to son. The peoples of the world have, since ancient times, had legends and stories about a universal flood.
After the Flood, Noah’s family and he went to fulfill and grow the earth. And conquer the whole surface of Terra. God begins anew the continuation of life in mankind by blessing the new families of Noah to multiply and possess the earth, as He blessed the first family, Adam and Eve, to multiply and possess the earth.
Was Noah’s family saved?
The Lord saw that Noah was good and that he was an honest man, so He thought to save him and his family: his wife and sons Shem, Ham, Japheth, and their wives. The Lord commanded Noah to take one pair of each animal and seven pairs of birds and put them on the ark so that they would be animals on the earth again after the Flood. Some say the Flood lasted 365 days, others say it was 371 days before the ark failed on top of Mount Ararat. But the Bible says the Flood lasted 40 days.
Noah’s family was rescued from the floodwaters. They were the only human survivors of the Flood being saved by God’s grace. What was impossible for Noah was possible for God. Because with God nothing is impossible. God said to Noah, I want to save you and your family, so build an ark big enough for your family. In the space, you have left you are to bring animals, two of each race, male and female, so that they may multiply afterward.
“In the days of Noah, the injustice and violent deeds of men were great. That is why God decided to destroy mankind in a flood. But He did not do this without warning people first. In His long patience, God granted another 120 years for repentance and return to Him. Peter writes of God’s long-suffering waiting in the days of Noah.”
(1 Peter 3:20 – NIV ).
Which son of Noah did not enter the ark?
God teaches Noah to build this ark. He makes the plan and gives him the measurements. Then God began to regret creating human beings. But there was only one thing he could do, and that was to create humans again. Since He was very angry, he decided to destroy the whole world. However, this decision brought him a lot of suffering, He wanted to destroy not only human beings but the whole world, therefore He decided to drown everyone, to flood the whole world.
Not a single one of Noah’s sons was left out of the boat. All his sons entered the ark he had made with the help of the Lord. All humans come from Noah and his family. It says in the Bible, in Genesis chapters 6 and 7 that Noah had 3 sons who married, and survived the Flood.
Maybe after that, he had other sons or daughters. So it’s obvious that they had different blood types, like today’s body brothers do.
What was Noah’s wife’s name?
Because Noah was found to be like a saint in God’s eyes, he and his family were saved. God saw that people were only doing bad things so he told Noah to build an ark because he was going to send a flood. God told him to take a pair of all the animals of the earth and put them on the ark. While Noah was building, the other people were making fun of him.
Noah’s wife was Naamah and she was one of the Father’s blessed people who survived the Flood. After Noah finished the ark he went in with his wife, Naamah, the animals, and the rest of his family who had 8 people along with Noah. God sent rain 40 days and 40 nights.
What nations descended from Japheth?
Japheth is a great man, Father, and Bible character. He is the third son of Noah. Noah was blessed with 3 sons, and the wonder of wonders… they were also passed as righteous in the eyes of the Lord because of their righteous Father.
The nations that are descended from Japheth are the following seven:
I consider Japheth’s tribe to be a rich one, one from which 7 other great heads came forth.
Who is the second son of Noah?
Noah is a prophet, who in times of trouble saved a pair of every species of animal on his ark. He had 3 sons from whom all the tribes of the world spread.
Ham is Noah’s second son. He was seen as righteous because of his Father, Noah. Ham saw the rainbow which was the symbol of God’s friendship and gratitude to Noah, his sons, and their descendants and the symbol that ended the Flood.
Because Noah was a man loved by God, God considered him His friend. He chose him to be the source of all the tribes of the world. Including the bloodline of Jesus. HE is a qualified descendant of Shem, according to the great Gospel of Luke, chapter 3, verse 36: Jesus is a real and bloodline descendant of Shem.
The direct descendants of Shem were the Semites who spread to the Near East.
- Noah entered the ark with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives. They were all saved.
- Noah’s sons were not saved by their Father’s faith, but because they entered the ark in obedience to God’s Word.
- God made a covenant with Noah and his descendants. The sign of this covenant is the rainbow in the clouds.
“The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.)These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the whole earth.”
Genesis 9:20 (NIV)
