19)“And without faith it is impossible to please Him,for he who comes to Godmust believe that He is,and that He is a rewarder of those who seek H im.By faith Noah,Being warned by God about things not yet seen,in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his household, by which he condemned the world,and became an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.”Hebrews 11:6,7

Remember reading how wicked people were!As people were becoming more wicked the LORD God was filled with sadness.He was sorry He had made people on earth .He decided to stop all the badness by removing all the people from the earth.

He saw that Noah was the only good man of his time and walked with Him ,pleasing Him.God told Noth to make a big boat, called the Ark .He was to make it with three stories or floors and many rooms and nests on each floor .He was to use a special kind of wood and water .proof the Ark by covering the wood inside and out with a material like tar .The Ark ,God said ,was to be 300 cubits long and fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high and was to have a roof and window around it near the top .He was to put one door in the side.

Noah was to bring on the Ark his family and two of every kind of living bird ,animal ,and creeping thing .Noah was to bring every kind of plant for the living things and for his family to eat .Noah obeyed and did all God told him to do .In the Bible read Genesis 6.

Some places do not have fresh fruits and vegecables during all seasons of the year. Have you tried dried raisins,dried mushroom,and dried apples,noodles and greens?What dried food do you like best?Noah and his family and the animals ate dried fruits and vegetables,They prepared these for their meals in the ark.Pretend you are on the ark.Have a family meal together. Ask someone to help you make a meal from dried fruits,vegetables,flours and other stored foods,Is the food good?


“挪亚因着信,既蒙神指示他未见的事,动了敬畏的心,预备了一只方舟,使他全家得救。因此就定了那世代的罪,自己也承受了那从信而来的义。” (希伯来书十一章七节)






20)Who once were disobedient,when the patience of God kept waiting in the days of Noah,during the construction a few,that is,eight persons,were brought safely through the water .1 Peter 3:20

Noah compieced the Ark,God told him to  enten the Ark.He was not alone.He was to take his family.So Noah and his wife,their three sons,Shem,Ham and Japheth,and each son`s wife entered the a Ark.

Remember all the rooms on each floor,God sent two of every kind of animal to the Ark.God told Noah he was to let them in the Ark.and make them at home .God sent a male and its mate.Animals were called clean and unclean by God.Of the clean animals seven pair of each kind entered the Ark.Of all birds,seven pair of each kind entered,A pair of each creeping thing on the earth came also.

Two of each unclean animal came:Two pigs,two horses and all others.Fourteen clean animals came:fourteen sheep,fourteen chickens and all others.When all had entered,then the LORD closed the door to the Ark.

Then God sent the water,It began to rain.No one else could enter the Ark.All in the ark who had obeyed God and come were safe from the rain and other water.

Two by two by two the animals came,Two unclean animals went into the Ark:1,2,Can you count by twos?2,4,6,8,10,12,14.Fourteen clean animals went into the Ark to stay with Noah and his family. What animals can you see and count? The ancestor of each one of those animals was on the Ark with Noah.Please draw a picture of sone ofyour  favorite animals.In the Bible read Genesis 7:1-16.














21)For if God…did not spare the ancient world,but preserved Noah,a preacher of righteousness,with seven others,when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly;then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation,and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment。”2 Peter 2:4a 5,9

Water,water everywhere except inside the Ark,Not a drip.No leaks,God had kept His Word,He kept Noah and his family safe when He sent water on the earth,God caused all the fountains of the earth to burst open and shoot water up rom inside the earth.

Tsunamis spilled onto the land. God opened the floodgates of heaven and poured down water.Rain began to fall. Rain fell without stopping for forty days and forty nights.

The big Ark was lifted up above the earth by the floodwaters,The Ark floated on the water,What a big,big boat to float and not break:It was 450 feet!138 meters)long by 75 feet(23 meters)wide by 45 feet (about 13.8 meters)high.Everything was covered with water on the earth,ever the tallest mountains were covered by more than 20 feet (about 7 neters)of water.Everything on the earth died.What a sad time it was for ereryone who refused to obey God.

Take a large piece of paper such as newspape.Draw a rectangle on it:make it 30 inches(76cm)long and 5 inches(13cm)wide.Draw a border for the walls around the rectangle 3 inches(8cm)wide.Cut a long the outer lines and then fold up the border crenthing sides.This is the boat,Make a roof  for it .This is what this big Ark was like ,What a strange boat .It is like a box.It was a wonderful boat-box.It rode on the water safely.Everything and everyone in this boat-box called an Ark was kept safe.Now scientists make boats safe by using these same proportions.In the Bible read Genesis 7
