“And you shall enter the ark, you and your sons and your wife and wives of your sons with you. And from all that lives, from all flesh, two of each thing you shall bring to the ark to keep alive with you, male and female they shall be.“
The total number of humans who entered the ark were 8 people, 4 men and their wives.
Out of the entire world population, only eight humans were elected to be saved.
In biblical numerology, the number 8 stands for redemption and will remain so throughout the entirety of Scripture.
Another point is that both humans and animals are represented by one male and one female.
This is the pattern that God has set down and all other forms of intimate bonding whether homosexual or polygamous are outside of God’s will for mankind.
God’s ideal is that marriage is to be between one man and one woman.
