In the time of Noah, he was the only one who feared the Lord. For the heart of every other man desired to do evil. God saw this and was sorry that He had ever created such beings. That was when He let Noah know of His plans to wipe out every living thing through a world wide flood. By faith, Noah spent 120 years building the ark. Trusting God at His word to bring the rain, Noah made the choice to walk in radical obedience.
