God led man from Genesis 3 through Genesis 8. Whenever man was damaged by the enemy, God always had a way to go forward. When man fell in Eden, God had a way. When Cain slew his brother, God had a way. Eventually, when mixture came in and man showed he was utterly incapable of fulfilling God’s expectations and hope, God used the flood to judge and destroy what had become absolutely corrupt and to usher in a fresh start.
