Daily Bible Portion 7 of 7

(Weekly Reading>> Genesis 6:9-11:32, Isaiah 54:1-10, Numbers 28:1-15, Matthew 24:36-44, 1 Peter 3:18-22)

Be Fruitful and Multiply

Genesis 9:1 “So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.’”

Yahweh commanded Noah and his family to be fruitful and multiply. These are the same directives given in Creation to Adam and Eve (Genesis 1:28). All families on earth are to produce “seed” (from the Tree of Life) that would bring forth and multiply generations who would glorify and praise the Name of YHVH.

Psalm 78:1-4 “Give ear, O my people, to my law [Torah –The Tree of Life - seed]; incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old, which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, telling to the generation to come the praises of Yahweh, and His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.”

Do Not Eat the Lifeblood

At this time man’s diet also increased. Along with green herbage Yahweh gave them permission to eat animal flesh. Only clean animals without blood are called “food” and are acceptable for human consumption in the Bible. Pork, shellfish, carnivore birds and animals for example, carry diseases and are unfit for human consumption; consequently they are not considered edible and therefore not called food in the Bible. Also, Yahweh warned man not to eat the lifeblood of the animal in the meat they consumed (Genesis 9:4). The lifeblood was that which flowed through the veins and arteries and took life into the body and also removed debris. This lifeblood was not to be eaten as the blood is for atonement.

Genesis 9:4 “But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.”

Today, this principle to refuse to consume the lifeblood still applies and is a universal eternal law, just as the rainbow is a universal principle still activated for all the generations of Noah’s descendants, including us (Acts 15:20, 29; Acts 21:25).

The Sons of Noah

The sons of Noah were Shem, Ham and Japheth. From these sons came many people groups and nations that populated the earth (Genesis 9:18-27).

Noah worked the soil and planted a vineyard. Noah’s youngest son Ham found his father lying naked inside his tent, quite drunk from the wine. “Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside” (Genesis 9:22).

The word saw is ra’ah (Strong’s #7200) in Hebrew, which means to look, see and understand. The lesson of this story in Scripture is that in Yeshua, as a redeemed people, we are learning to walk in a redeemed lifestyle, and while we learn together we are to cover (forgive) each other’s sins of dishonor and not expose them. The phrase "uncover ones nakedness" is used in scripture to describe sexual relations [Leviticus ch. 20]. While Noah was still under the influence of wine, his other two sons reverently and with respect covered their father to restore dignity.

Upon waking, Noah said,

“Cursed be Canaan [son of Ham]; a servant of servants He shall be to his brethren.” And he said: “Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Shem, and may Canaan be his servant. May God enlarge Japheth, and may he dwell in the tents of Shem; and may Canaan be his servant” (Genesis 9: 25-27).

The Generations of Noah and the Tower of Babel
(Genesis 10:1-11:9)

After the flood Noah (the tenth generation since Adam) lived 350 years and died at the age of 950 when Abraham (the twentieth generation since Adam) was 58 years old.

Recorded in this Scripture reference Genesis 10:1-11:9, is the list of generations and lines of descent within their nations that filled the earth after the flood. In Genesis 11 we see the extent to which evil has intensified upon the earth. Yahweh kept His promise not to flood the earth again, but to control the evil He caused great confusion among the populace by changing their one language into many. The various languages they spoke thereafter were just babble to those listening who spoke in a different tongue. With this, Yahweh scattered them over the earth.

1 Peter 3:18 –22 “For Yeshua died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to Yahweh. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit, through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison who disobeyed long ago when Yahweh waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also-- not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward Yahweh. It saves you by the resurrection of Yeshua, who has gone into heaven and is at Yahweh’s right hand-- with angels, authorities and powers in submission to Him.”

2 Peter 3:3-17 “In the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, ‘Where is this coming he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.’ But they deliberately forget that long ago by Yahweh’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With Yahweh a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. Yahweh is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

But the day of Yahweh will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.

Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of Yahweh and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.

So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with Him.”
