Thots on the first 2000 years


There was some type of Law given at this time, since Cain and Abel were aware of the need to make sacrifices and which sacrifices were acceptable/not acceptable.

Living to be 800 or 900 years old was common before the flood.

Enoch never died.

Lamech knew when Noah was born, that he had a special purpose.

Our life span is supposed to be 120 years.

Some think the Nephilim were one of the main reasons for the flood – to destroy them from corrupting the seed of mankind.

The animals came to Noah.

Noah knew the difference between clean and unclean animals.

YHWH shut the door of the ark.

We are given specific days for the following:

  1. 7th month, day 17 – ark came to rest on Ararat
  2. 10th month, day 1 – mountain tops seen
  3. 1st month, day 1 – waters dry from earth, face of earth dry
  4. 2nd month, day 27 – earth dried out

The rainbow covenant was made to Noah and for all future generations.

Man is commanded a second time to be fruitful and multiply.

Mankind is given permission to eat meat for the first time on record.  See notes from JK McKee
