In the name of the Father and of the +Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Noah and his sons emerged from the ark. God repeated His blessing and command given to Adam and Eve (Gen. 1:28) three times (Gen. 8:17; 9:1, 7), “Be fruitful and multiply and the fill earth. Make it a paradise of those who walk with God, who trust in Him who will send His Son born of human flesh to crush the works of the serpent. (Genesis 3:15; 4:1)” But it doesn’t take long—just the space of four generations (Gen. 10:6-10)—for unbelief to take hold, for the great-grandson of Noah to not walk with the Lord in faith. But rather to lift himself up (Gen 10:9-11). To turn to himself and his own works. To build a city to make his own name great on the earth (Gen. 11:4). Rather than walking with (Gen. 6:9) and calling upon the name of Him (Gen. 4:26) whose Son will save all mankind from sin and death.
