Why did God send the flood?
God destroyed all the evil people and their whole sinful world. He used the Flood to bury their evil cities and all their wicked belongings. He wiped out practically every trace of them. The destruction was so great that it changed the world’s environment and geography until this day. This is a reminder to everyone that God really does punish sin.
But God did remember the good people. There were only eight of them, but He saved them. God blessed Noah’s family and used them to give the human race a wonderful, fresh start. Every person living today came from one of Noah’s three sons—Shem, Ham and Japheth.
