100 words on the sanctions of Noah and the Flood.
Ethics are a code of morality—knowing what’s right or wrong. In the Bible, man broke from the guidelines of ethics our Creator set for us by our own choice and so God initiated a punishment, for no crime can go without sanction. He caused a flood to pour down from the heavens for 40 days and 40 nights. By obeying God’s ethical code, Noah and his family were saved body and soul. New grace was bestowed on the earth by God, and He promised, “Never again will I curse the earth because of human beings, because their heart contrives evil from their infancy. Never again will I strike down every living thing as I have done.” ~Genesis 8:21. To signify this oath he painted a rainbow across the sky. The lesson of this story is to remind us that if we follow the rule of ethics like Noah and his family, we will also be spared from the punishments of God.
