Genesis 7:11-24 NIV – 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the
second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of
the heavens were opened.  12  And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13  On that very day Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the
wives of his three sons, entered the ark.  14  They had with them every wild animal according to
its kind, all livestock according to their kinds, every creature that moves along the ground
according to its kind and every bird according to its kind, everything with wings. 15  Pairs of all
creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark.  16  The animals
going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the
LORD shut him in.
17  For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the
ark high above the earth.  18  The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark
floated on the surface of the water.  19  They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high
mountains under the entire heavens were covered.  20  The waters rose and covered the
mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits.
21  Every living thing that moved on land perished—birds, livestock, wild animals, all the
creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind.  22  Everything on dry land that had the
breath of life in its nostrils died.  23  Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out;
people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped
from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark. 24  The waters flooded the
earth for a hundred and fifty days.

Ezekiel 18:23 NLT – 23  “Do you think that I like to see wicked people die? says the Sovereign
LORD. Of course not! I want them to turn from their wicked ways and live. VS. 31-32 – 31  Put
all your rebellion behind you, and find yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should
you die, O people of Israel?  32  I don’t want you to die, says the Sovereign LORD. Turn back and
live!

C.S. Lewis once said, IF we don’t have an understanding of or grasp God’s Holiness… how will
we be amazed at His Amazing Grace?!

Isaiah 6:3 – Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD GOD Almighty.

1 Samuel 2:2 NCV – “There is no one holy like the LORD. There is no God but you; there is no
Rock like our God.

Psalm 96:9 ESV – Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the
earth!

1 Peter 1:13-16 ESV – 13  So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your
hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the
world.  14  So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of
living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then.  15  But now you must be holy
in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. 16  For the Scriptures say, “You must be
holy because I am holy.” (Leviticus 20:26)

Genesis 8:1-NIV – 1 But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that
were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.  2  Now
the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had
stopped falling from the sky.  3  The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the
hundred and fifty days the water had gone down,  4  and on the seventeenth day of the seventh
month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.  5  The waters continued to recede until
the tenth month, and on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains became
visible.

Genesis 8:6-12 NIV – 6  After forty days Noah opened a window he had made in the ark  7  and
sent out a raven, and it kept flying back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth.
8  Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground. 9  But
the dove could find nowhere to perch because there was water over all the surface of the
earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and
brought it back to himself in the ark.
10  He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark.  11  When the dove
returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah
knew that the water had receded from the earth.  12  He waited seven more days and sent the
dove out again, but this time it did not return to him.

Genesis 8:13-19 NIV – 13  By the first day of the first month of Noah’s six hundred and first
year, the water had dried up from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark
and saw that the surface of the ground was dry.
14  By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry. 15  Then God
said to Noah,  16  “Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives.  17  Bring
out every kind of living creature that is with you—the birds, the animals, and all the creatures
that move along the ground—so they can multiply on the earth and be fruitful and increase in
number on it.” 18  So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’
wives.  19  All the animals and all the creatures that move along the ground and all the
birds—everything that moves on land—came out of the ark, one kind after another.

Genesis 8:20-22 NIV – 20  Then Noah built an altar to the LORD and, taking some of all the clean
animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it.  21  The LORD smelled the pleasing
aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even
though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I
destroy all living creatures, as I have done. 22  “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and
harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”
