Read Genesis 8:20 - 9:17
God's Covenant of Grace unfolds further in history as we come to the time of the great flood upon the whole of the earth, in the time of Noah. This flood reveals the depth of God's wrath and judgment against the sinfulness of men. It also reveals the need of God's grace in salvation, as he calls Noah [a type of Christ] to prepare an ark, in which Noah and his family are saved. Further, upon exiting the ark, the LORD God extends his "everlasting" covenant with Noah, sealing it with the rainbow; God's promise to preserve the world for hsi grace of salvation to be completed.
