A Supernatural Life-Preserving Event
Genesis 8:4 (KJB) And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
The ark touched down on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th of the 7th month. These are twenty important inspired and recorded words which explicitly describe this miraculous supernatural life-preserving event.
These words are also a beautiful picture of salvation.
The ark is seen by some as only a picture of baptism. Man going down through the waters and rising back up and out of the water. However, the much greater picture is one of death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The ark pictured a place of safety and a refuge for Noah and his family from the storm raging about them.
The Bible says not only did God save these people from certain death and destruction but He set them to rest upon the mountains. Just like God saved you and I from certain destruction in the fires of Hell and gave us a place of rest for all eternity.
If you take some time to study this particular date from the Bible: The seventh month and the seventeenth day you will find other important events recorded on this day which happened in different periods beyond the time of Noah.
