Question 559

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? Seriously, How did Noah get all the animals to the Ark with the widespread of all the continents and with all the oceans and seas in between?


The solution is simple, #1 – God put into the minds of the animals that he wanted to be saved to go to the Ark, Noah DID NOT go get the animals BECAUSE his job was to “Build the Ark”.

Genesis 6:13-14 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. (14) Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

#2 – Prior to the Flood, scripture tells us that the continents WERE NOT divided until the days of Peleg, so by conductive reasoning ALL the continents were ALL JOINED together into one large land mass, therefore there were no Oceans, or Seas for those animals to cross.

Genesis 10:25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.

Since we are on the subject of Noah’s Ark, I Just want to clear up a MIS conception on how many animals were put on the Ark, some people think that only two of every animal were on the Ark yes although that is partly true, BUT, in this case, I’ll let the scriptures speak for themselves…

Genesis 7:2-3 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. (3) Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

To put it simple there were “Seven sets of Two Male and Female (1+1=2 x7) brought onto the Ark according to Genesis 7:2,3 & 9.

There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.

In Conclusion:

– God brought the animals to the Ark.

– All the continents were all joined together in one large land mass prior to the flood.

– In the days of Peleg were the continents (earth) divided.

– The Ark was God’s salvation TO ALL who would enter (Believe, Trust).

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
