Bible Prophecy

Noah Was Quarantined

Feeling bad about being quarantined for so long? Well, look to your Bible for encouragement. Did you know that Noah was quarantined in the Ark for 150 days? In fact, after the flood, he had to wait seven days for the water to recede. Check it out.

God was killing the virus of sin that plagued the earth. But before he sent water to sanitize everything, he instructed Noah to take two of every couple, male and female, in the animal kingdom into the Ark including his sons, and their wives.

“Of every clean animal you are to take seven couples, and of the animals that are not clean, one couple; For in seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights; I will wipe out every living thing that I have made from the face of the earth.”

Of clean animals, of animals that are not clean, of birds, and of everything that creeps on the ground, couples, male and female, went in to Noach in the ark, as God had ordered Noach. After seven days the water flooded the earth.”

B’resheet (Gen) 7:2,4, 8-10

The quarantine period last more than forty days and forty nights:

‘The flood was forty days on the earth; the water grew higher and floated the ark, so that it was lifted up off the earth. They went in to Noach in the ark, couples from every kind of living thing that breathes.
Those that entered went in, male and female, from every kind of living being, as God had ordered him; and Adonai shut him inside. (iii) ‘ B’resheet (Gen) 7:15-17

Genesis 7:15-17 CJB

So while the rest of the world were being killed by God because of the virus of sin that plagued the Earth, Noah and his three sons were quarantined under God’s protection inside the Ark with every kind of male & female creature.

So while its frustrating to stay inside, imagine being stuck on an island in the form of an ark for months. In fact Noah couldn’t walk the dog or go to the store! You think Noah was able to go for a jog? No way! Be encouraged.
