Genesis 6:10-13 – The Condemnation of All Things

Gen 6:10  And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Gen 6:11  The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

Gen 6:12  And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Gen 6:13  And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.


In verse 17 God tells Noah that He will destroy everything, all flesh (basar)



Gen 6:17  And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.



This means that all living creatures were the cause of God’s repentance.  Satan is not mentioned as the cause or reason for man’s depravity and corruption.

God was going to destroy all flesh, which He had created.


Hebrew sages say that humans were created with both a good and evil inclination inside them.

Does this mean that God created evil?

What is evil, how did it materialize, and how does it operate?


We are subject to the basic laws of our created universe; laws created by God.

These laws have specific boundaries and limitations (physics, gravity)

According to both astrophysicists and quantum physicists, we live in a hyperspace of more than four dimensions, and that there is a total of ten dimensions.

Some Hebrew sages agree with these physicists but they add one more dimension, the eleventh dimension of God.


Our universe contains four of these 11 dimensions;

Height, width, length, and time.

Eph 3:18  May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

Height, width, and length are measured by space, and this is what has become known as our space-time universe.

Here is an idea of just how big our universe might be:

In 1977, NASA launched a space probe, named Voyager into space to locate and study the regions and boundaries of the outer heliosphere, and finally to begin exploring the interstellar medium.

On September 12, 2013, NASA announced that Voyager 1 had crossed the heliopause and entered interstellar space.  Since it took about a year to receive transmissions from the craft, they discovered that this occurred on August 25, 2012, meaning that it took the craft around 35 years to reach the somewhere beyond the orbit of Pluto.

No matter how far Voyager goes, it will only just be in these same four dimensions.

But what about the remaining six or seven dimensions?

It is possible that these other dimensions don’t exist in our universe, not just because we can’t measure them, but because they exist in what physicists call “parallel universes.”

Not a mirror image of our universe where we exist again, but one that exists simultaneously along with ours, either existing within our completely outside our universe, or a combination of both.

Some examples for this are:

a.      Heaven or the after-life doesn’t obey the law of physics.

b.      God is timeless and eternal.

Eternal doesn’t mean a very long time; it means a state of existence without time; an existence of a realm in which time doesn’t even exist.

c.       God and His Spirit can’t be measured because our sensory organs can only sense physical things that make up our universe, yet we can experience the two; we can experience our walk with God through His Spirit.

d.      Since God, the Holy Spirit, and our life spirit can’t be measured, only experienced, then they must be from an outside dimension; God must place them into our universe.

e.      When God, from outside our dimension, created our universe, it was formless and void (empty and desolate), completely in darkness.

f.        This darkness was not just dark but evil or chaos (“choshek” wickedness).

g.      God brought light or “goodness” from somewhere else into our dimension (“or” illumination).

h.      Since God defined goodness, and because of how our universe operates (Newton’s third law of motion) and in order for it to exist, then it’s opposite, evil had to be defined


Isa 45:7  I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Amo 3:6  Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?



Mankind was created with a will to choose what he wants to do.  The result of this choice is magnified through the actions of Adam in the Garden and then those who were born under his fallen image.  Adam chose to disobey God, not because God tricked him, or by Satan’s influence.

He chose to sin, to do evil, just as this generation in Noah’s day.
