Ten Biblical Proofs That The Flood Was Worldwide

1. If the flood had only been of a local nature, an ark would not have been necessary.

2. The size of the ark was large enough to house two of all the unclean, and seven of all the clean, land animal species. (The total volume of the ark equaled that of 522 standard railroad boxcars!)

3. The purpose of the flood was to destroy all flesh (Genesis 6: 7,13,17; 7:4,21-23).

4. The flood's water covering the highest mountain on earth verifies its worldwide nature (Genesis 7:19-20).

5. The total duration of the flood was one year and ten days (Genesis 7:11; 8:14).

6. The raven and the dove would not have returned to the ark if the flood was only of a local nature.

7. God's promise speaks of never again sending this type of flood, one which would destroy all flesh (Genesis 8:21; 9:11,15).

8. All people have descended from Noah's three sons (Genesis 9:19).

9. Peter testified that the "world" was destroyed by the flood (II Peter 2:5; 3:6).

10. The Lord Jesus testified that "all" were destroyed in the flood, and compared this scene to the end of the world (Matthew 24:37-39; Luke 17:26-27).
