Pamphlet #6245 Genesis KC 18-2

Notice the repetition of the word "And" at the beginning of the verses in chapter 9.
 It is the same figure of speech, a Polysyndeton, that we saw in Genesis 1,
whereby each "And" is independent, important and emphatic, i.e.
giving special emphasis the words which follow. See #6207  also #6209  and #6211  and #6212  and #6213  and #6215  and #6216   and #6217

Genesis 9:7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
Go make some babies, Noah.
[8] And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

[9] And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;

And so the covenant that God is about to make is not just with Noah but includes you and me!
[10] And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
And it includes everyone else who dwells on the earth, as well.

Notice the repetition of the word "And" at the beginning of the verses in chapter 9
. It is the same figure of speech, a Polysyndeton, that we saw in Genesis 1,
whereby each "And" is independent, important and emphatic, i.e.
giving special emphasis the words which follow.

[11] And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
When God makes a promise He always keeps it.

And when He says that no flood shall destroy the earth, that includes the "flood" of Satan (Rev 12:15).

Some preachers teach gloom and doom and worldwide devastation and destruction from the Book of Revelation.

Don't they know that the warfare of the end time is spiritual and requires the gospel armor, not armored tanks?

[12] And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
Perpetual generations means just that, forever and ever.
[13] I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
The beautiful rainbow, containing the full prism of colors,
and which follows a rain storm, is to remind us of God's promise.
[14] And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
[15] 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 when God sees it, it also reminds Him of His promise.
[16] 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.
[17] And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
Did you know that our Father added an amendment to this covenant just for His elect?

To them, when they see the rainbow,
it reminds them of our Father's love and His promise not to be angry with His children, i.e.
we are fully protected from the wrath of God which is directed only towards His enemies, Satan & Company.

Isaiah 54:9
For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

Isaiah 54:10
For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

Oh, how He loves His children!

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
