Then God said to Noah: Come Out of the Ark

8: 15-19

For over a year God had been silent, but now He commanded Noah and his family to leave the ark. All other human life had been destroyed in the Flood. Now Noah’s three sons and their wives would repopulate the earth. Although the rest of humanity had been judged, Noah and his family were saved. None had been lost. The LORD brought them through the judgment of the Flood by telling them exactly how to escape it and live. They believed Him and obeyed. Throughout the long history of mankind, God has always rescued those who believe in Him and obey His word. Because God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ (First Thessalonians 5:9).

The animals shared Noah’s deliverance and because they entered the ark with him, they also left with him. They were also rescued from the Flood and now they could resume their charge to multiply and increase in number (9:19). ADONAI would soon bless Noah and his sons with a similar command. But before that blessing was spoken the aged patriarch would worship the LORD by building an altar to Him and sacrificing offerings on it. Worship and fellowship would blend in joyful celebration as a redeemed man and a redeeming God communed together.155
