Let’s go ahead and get our first question up here. All right, so Gloria is asking genesis 617 to 19. And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ark to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female. Does this mean men and women were allowed to board also? If not, where did the evil men women come from after the flood? Or does it say in the Bible?
Gloria, that is a fantastic question. I really like that one because I want to make sure it’s very clear. So actually, if you go back to the book of Genesis, chapter six, verse 18, I want to show you some things that are very, very clear that the Bible says to answer your question, Genesis six and verse 18, and it reads, but I will establish my covenant. This is God speaking. I will establish my covenant with you, Noah, and you shall go into the ark, you, your sons, your wife and your son’s wives with you. So the only people that were allowed onto the ark was Noah, his wife, his three sons and their hopefully eight and their wives. So Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives. The Bible is very clear, actually. Jesus says Noah, the 8th person, was on the ark. So the Bible is very clear that only Noah and his three sons and their wives were allowed onto the ark. So when it says two by two, the two by two is only for the unclean animals. It’s actually not two by two of all the animals, the clean animals that it says in chapter seven, the next chapter and verse two, it says take clean beasts that would be basically so that they could be eaten.
And it says seven after their kind. So a male and his female and seven of them. So basically, I would assume it would be one male and six female when it came to the clean meats, like cows and things like that, actually, there’s.
Some uncertainty there because the real word there is sevens. So it’s not clear if it means seven pairs or if it means in sevens.
Just like how time times can have different meanings.
Got you. And I appreciate that. But basically it was more than two is what I’m saying. So when it came to clean meats, it actually was more than two, like it says in Genesis, chapter seven, verse two. So clean meats was something that was established before the law of Moses that you see later in Leviticus. And so as far as where the evil people came from. Now, if you understand that Noah and his sons were still in a fallen world, so they were not perfect, and you kind of read about this even just after the flood, after this amazing catastrophic event, that they survived by a miracle of God, by faith building that ark. If you go to Genesis, chapter nine and verses 18 through 25. And I’ll say this really quick. Genesis 18, Genesis 918 through 25. And it reads there now, the sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Jaiff. And Ham was the father of Canaan. So just very clear. Those were the only three men. These three were the sons of Noah. And from these the whole earth was populated. And you keep going. And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard.
So that’s what Noah did. And you keep going. And it says, then he drank of the wine and was drunk and became uncovered in his tent. So Noah, I think, maybe accidentally I don’t know, I can’t say for sure was drunk after drinking from his vineyard. Maybe before the flood, things didn’t ferment. I don’t know. But Noah drank this alcohol. Maybe he didn’t know how much was okay, what would get him drunk. So anyways, he ends up getting drunk. And if you keep reading this story, it’s a little bit sad. But in Genesis nine and verse 22, it says, and Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brethren, brothers outside. So Ham actually a lot of people aren’t sure exactly what this means, but they believe that there was something inappropriate that happened with Ham and his father. Obviously, Noah was drunk and passed out and just naked. And so Ham did something inappropriate with his father. And so then you see the two sons, Jaffith and Jaffith and Shem. And in verse 23 it says, and shem and Jaffith took a garment and laid it both upon their shoulders and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father.
And their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness. And you go on to 24, and it says, so Noah woke from his wine and knew what his younger son had done to him. So there was something done to Noah by his son Ham that was obviously very wrong. And so even though Ham was spared, even though Ham went through this, there was still sin in him. There was still something evil in him for him to dishonor and abuse his father in some way, according to this story. And then in verse 25, you basically see a curse given to Ham because this is then he said noah said curse would be Canaan, which is the land that Ham had been the father of. It says, the servant of servants he shall be to his brethren. So basically a curse was upon him. Even though somebody might be in the church, even though somebody might be having the name of Christianity, of God, that doesn’t mean that there’s not sin or evil in them. And so, I mean, everybody has sinned. The Bible says all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
So the evil people after Noah and his sons. Noah and his sons still were not perfect. They still needed a savior, just like we do. But Ham was definitely the one who made the biggest sin after the flood and his lineage from Canaan. The Canaanites were not good people. They did not know God. They were always at war with Israel. So the main line of evil people, I would say, would probably came from Ham. But all of us, like I said, needed Messiah, and so that would be what I would say as far as where the evil people came from after the flood. Jay, Wendy, any other thoughts on that?
No. Those were my thoughts exactly, too.
