Genesis 12
October 30, 2011

Two weeks ago we looked at the account of the flood and how all humankind and animals were destroyed who weren't on the ark that Noah built.

The question I asked from that message was, "What Are You Building?"
Just like Noah was asked to build the ark as a sign of the coming judgment, what are you building with your life right now that shows the world that you believe that one day all this is coming to an end?

But now we are looking at conditions and people that existed AFTER the flood.

So, stand with me, and let's read a few verses to get us up to speed with Abram following the flood.

Genesis 11:10
