Ark Day!

Today is Cheshvan 10…
the day that the animals started boarding the ark,
the day that Noah first stepped inside to ‘start packing’.

Let’s take a look at the verses, shall we?

And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.  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.  Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.  For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.  And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.

And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.  And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.  Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,  There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.  And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.  In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.  Genesis 7:1-11

So on the tenth day of the second month, Noah and the animals stepped inside the ark, and at that point, the shelter was accessible.  The tenth of Cheshvan is Ark Day.  And the excitement was high – it was TIME!!!  Who knows?  In our time, it might be a time of ‘going in’, too.  Hey… you KNOW I’m open to ALL possibilities!!

But I had to add that I *LOVE* this picture… cuz look how many sheep are coming on. Debunking chrischun ‘two by two’ crap also geeks me – there was a LOT more than just ‘two by two’ on that boat!  Also, in case I confused anyone, today is 10 Cheshvan, seven days before Flood Day.  It’s the day Noah went in with his family, and the animals came.  He was in the ark seven days before the Flood.  For the record!
