GENESIS
CHAPTER 9
Vs. 1

And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

God blesses Noah and his sons just as He did Adam and Eve even using the same words for “replenish the earth” which would support the theory that there was a creation prior to the one we are in right now.

Vs. 2-7

God puts a fear of man in the animals and allows Noah and sons to eat meat, which it seems was already a practice if not endorsed by God but now it is allowed for a practical reason in my opinion. They had just spent 150 + days in a flood that wiped out everything, including all of that years harvest, if the months were the at about the same time of the year then as they are now the flood came during the growing season, we are in the 7th month of the Jewish calendar now, (Jews have 2 new year days a year, if you are curious ask Kindred, she can explain it much better than i).  So it would be a year before a new crop would be available.  Even though God allows eating meat He forbids eating meat with the blood, which is the life of the body. Funny how they new this (because God told them) 4500 years ago and the brilliant scientists that discount the bible only found this out 100 years ago, the life is in the blood, they should have read the book and maybe they wouldn’t have bled people to cure them for a few hundred years. Anyway this is a rule that has never changed, it is repeated in the book of Leviticus 5 times and in the book of Acts 1.

Some people call these the Noahide (not sure of the spelling) laws or covenant. Unfortunately I am not familiar enough with it to really go into it but if anyone wants to I promise to be nice. :-)

God also lays down the law concerning murder “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed”  and God blesses them to multiply.

Vs. 8 - 19

God establishes His covenant with Noah and with his seed after him and with the animals. Notice that God has given a set of rules, then says He is establishing a covenant, then makes a promise. This is a pattern that is repeated all the way to the gospel of John when at the last supper Jesus says “if you love me, keep my commandments” as He is establishing the new covenant.

The promise from God is that never again would there be a flood that would kill everything and He makes a token to seal it, the rainbow.  But listen to what He says about it.

“And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:  And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.  And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.”

“And I will remember my covenant” not you will remember but God said HE would remember. Later He would say;

Exo 12:13  And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

When He was redy to deliver the children of Israel from Egypt.



Later still it would be the blood of a bullock and a goat on the mercy seat that would atone for the sin of Israel and finally the blood of Jesus for all. Thank you Jesus.

Vs. 20 - 29

In these verses Noah makes some wine and gets drunk, notice that there is no condemnation for the wine or even the getting drunk but for what Ham did which would later be given as a law not to do. Rather than speculate on what Ham did I’ll just say that the result is that Ham is cursed and Shem and Japheth are blessed.

And Noah lived 350 years after the flood, to the ripe old age of 950.
