God’s Purpose for Noah
After Adam sinned, the earth was filled with sin; the sin was so bad that the angels (the sons of God) were having sex with the daughters of men (Genesis 6:2). God called Noah as a preacher of righteousness to warn the people about the flood (2 Peter 2:4), because the earth was filled with sin and sin was continually running rampart (Genesis 6:5-7).
The fallen angels who had sex with the daughters of men are still chained today to be reserved until the day of judgment because of their atrocious (wicked) acts (2 Peter 2:4, Jude 6). Angels are given the ability to take on different forms, especially the form of humans. God told Noah to warn the people there was going to be a flood that would destroy everything on the earth (Genesis 6:11-13).
God used Noah to tell the people that destruction was coming, and if the people had listened, they could go into the ark and be safe. The people had plenty of time to take heed.
The people did not listen, and they took the wrong exit because they chose their own way (Genesis 6:13).
The people never got on Route 66, because they would not listen to Noah and they were destroyed (Genesis 7:21-23).
Noah, his family and two of every kind of species went into the Ark that God had instructed him to build, and they were safe. The pitch inside and outside covered (sealed) them with His redemption (Genesis 6:14; Ephesians 4:30). These are other ways that the Ark was symbolic of Salvation, which comes through Jesus Christ. God spared them of His wrath that would come upon all the earth (Genesis 6:13).
Notice that there was one door to the Ark which was the only way they could enter (Genesis 7:1). Jesus is the door and the only way to Salvation (John 10:9, John14:6). God gave the invitation for Noah and his family to enter the Ark (Genesis 7:1, John 6:37), and God sealed them in the Ark, which is symbolic of eternal security (John 10:28-29, Ephesians 4:30).
