(Jan 3) The Longest Week of Noah's Life

Genesis 7:10 "And after seven days the waters of the flood came upon the earth."

Noah's life was an interesting one. The word of the Lord had come to him instructing him to build an ark (Genesis 6:14). The dimensions of what he was to construct were given in detail. The purpose of the ark was also stated: "For behold, I will bring a flood of waters upon the earth to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life under heaven. Everything that is on the earth shall die" (Genesis 6:17).
