Plunged into Waters of a Mikveh

There are many hidden messages in the story of Noah’s Ark.  The rain which fell on Noah and the Ark was a forty-day mikveh, or immersion in water.  The Greek word for mikveh gives us the word baptism.

The Flood cleansed the earth in the same manner that immersing in a mikveh or a baptistry symbolically cleanses the inner person.  The flood waters washed away the dross of wicked men, whose “every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:5).  

Just as a mikveh is required to have forty seah of living water (about 200 gallons), so did living water from the heavens cleanse the earth around Noah’s Ark.  The world received a spiritual cleansing through forty days of rain, as part of God’s divine Redemptive Plan.  It was a type of burial and resurrection.  From this moment, the planet had a spiritual rebirth.  

There is more to understand regarding the mikveh.  May this insight fortify us as we face the election of a new U.S. president, and the challenging events to come.
