Why did Noah curse Canaan The son of Ham ?In Genesis 3;16 we read about the consequences of the penalty of disobedience.Eve was told that she would bring forth children in sorrow and her desire would betowards her husband and Adam her husband would rule over her.In Genesis 3 :17, we read that GOD cursed the ground, because Adam had listenedto the voice of his wife instead of listening to THE VOICE OF GOD.In Genesis 3: 18 we read about the consequences of the earth being cursed. - theground would bring forth "..thorns also and thistles..".Remember, how we read that when Our Lord Yeshua Ha-Mashiach The Lord JesusChrist was betrayed, and beaten with the Roman Cat of Nine Tails and a robe wasplaced on Him and The Crown of Thorns placed on His head ?Sin has consequences. We are free moral agents. We are not puppets. We are notrobots. we are not cyborgs. We were created to be free moral agents with the powerof choice. The decisions we make in life have consequences. We have to make wisedecisions in life because every decision we make in life has an impact on our journeyof life and impacts our course to our destination.Now the question is "..Why did Noah, curse Canaan the son of Ham ?.."That is a good question. It is a fair question.In Genesis 9 :19-29 we read :"…
These are the three sons of Noah: and of them wasthe whole earth overspread.
20
And Noah began to be an husbandman, and heplanted a vineyard:
21
And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and hewas uncovered within his tent.
22
And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakednessof his father, and told his two brethren without.
 
23
And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid itupon both their shoulders, and went backward, andcovered the nakedness of their father; and their faceswere backward, and they saw not their father'snakedness.
24
And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what hisyounger son had done unto him.
25
And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
26
And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; andCanaan shall be his servant.
27
God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in thetents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
28
And Noah lived after the flood three hundred andfifty years.
29
And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fiftyyears: and he died…".
In Genesis 9 :19-29 we read about Noah having a vine yard and one day heharvests his vineyard and make wine and gets drunk.Notice, in Genesis 9:24 -25 The Bible says that when ".. Noah awoke from his wineand knew what his younger son done unto him.." , Noah in his sober mind, in hissober senses, no longer drunk with wine, cursed Canaan , Ham's Son.Now Noah had come to his senses, he came to himself, just like the Prodigal Son,Noah awoke from spiritual slumber and not being drunk but being sober he realisedthat something had happened when he had got drunk.What had Ham done, that made Noah curse Canaan ?Why does the Bible say that Noah said ".. Cursed be Canaan: a servant of servants
 
shall he be unto his brethren..". [ Genesis 3;25].When did Noah awake from his wine ?Notice The Bible says that Noah awoke from his wine. It does not say that Noahawoke from his sleep.There is a difference. Think about it."...
24
And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew whathis younger son had done unto him.
25
And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren…".
Why would Ham want to go into his father's tent when his father was sleeping ?Be careful now. What would motivate Ham to go into his father's tent when Ham wasdrunk and sleeping the sleep of the drunk ? Think.Noah had planted a vineyard. Noah had become a husbandman. Noah had madewine. Did Noah become a drunken alcoholic ? Yes. Noah had become a drunkenalcoholic incapable to perform his duties as a husband. Noah's vineyard ruinedNoah's married life. Noah's new drunken lifestyle impacted on his marital conjugalduties. The wine would put Noah into a deep sleep. The wine would knock Noah out.Noah would just get drunk and "..sleep the sleep of the drunk and was not havingsex with his wife…".In Genesis 9:24 we read that "…And Noah awoke from his wine and knew what hisyounger son had done unto him…".What was it ? Noah was drunk for about nine months until Canaan was born. Andwhen Noah searched his mind to try and remember when last he had slept with hiswife, he could not remember because of the wine. The wine had made his mind goto sleep. The wine had made his mind sleep to the fact that Ham conducted himselfin such a manner as to suggest that Ham was the true father of Canaan and thatCanaan was not Noah's son. When Noah began to put two and two together, Noahrealised that Ham had disgraced him and that Canaan was not his son but Ham'sson.
