The events that followed the Flood prove that the seeds of sin in human nature are still developing. He was upright, blameless, and 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 was directed to Noah and “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 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 to 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 ark’s window 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 people who did not know the technique of writing. The knowledge of the Flood remained by tradition. It was transmitted orally from Father to son. Since ancient times, people have had legends and stories about a universal flood.
After the Flood, Noah’s family went to fulfill and grow the earth. And conquer the whole surface of Terra. God begins the continuation of life in humanity anew 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 have the world.
Was Noah’s family saved?
The Lord saw Noah as excellent and honest, 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 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, men’s injustice and violent deeds were great. That is why God decided to destroy humankind in flood. But He did not do this without warning people first. God granted another 120 years for repentance and returned 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 furious, 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 entire world. Therefore He decided to drown everyone, to flood the whole world.
No 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. Genesis chapters six and seven say in the Bible that Noah had three sons who married and survived the Flood.
Maybe after that, he had other sons or daughters. So it’s evident they had different blood types, like today’s body brothers do.
What was Noah’s wife’s name?
Because Noah was found to be a saint in God’s eyes, so 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 would send a flood. God told him to take a pair of all the earth’s animals and put them on the ark. While Noah was building, the other people were making fun of him.
Noah’s wife was Naamah, 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 eight 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 three 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 wealthy, one from which seven other great heads came forth.
Who is the second son of Noah?
Noah is a prophet who saved a pair of every species of animal on his ark in times of trouble. He had three 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, symbolizing God’s friendship and gratitude to Noah, his sons, their descendants, and the emblem 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 natural 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 son’s wives. They were all saved.
- their Father’s faith did not save Noah’s sons were not protected by their Father 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 Noah’s three sons, and the people scattered across the earth came from them.”
Genesis 9:20 (NIV)
