Two By Two

It’s as if the fire-vans have aged into fire-trucks. Time’s moved on, but they’ve stood still: expecting a fire; waiting for the flood.
God instructed Noah to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female... After they entered the ark, rain fell on the earth for a period of forty days and forty nights. The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days, and everything thing on the face of the earth was wiped out... Finally after an entire year, God invited Noah to come out of the ark. Immediately, he built an altar and worshiped the Lord with burnt offerings from some of the clean animals. God was pleased with the offerings and promised never again to destroy all the living creatures as he had just done. Later God established a covenant with Noah: "Never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth."As a sign of this everlasting covenant God set a rainbow in the clouds. Genesis 6:1-9:7
