As In The Days of Noah

To even those who study the Bible from one end to the other, they do not know when Yeshua (CHRIST) will return again. Many parables were spoken but no date was ever given of this coming event.

In Matthew 24:37-39 (1599 Geneva Bible) we read: “37 But as the days of Noah were, so likewise shall the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days before the flood, they did eat and drink, marry, and give in marriage, unto the day that Noah entered into the Ark,

39 And knew nothing, till the flood came, and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

This passage of Scripture really doesn’t tell us much about how things were “as in the days of Noah.”

Much research can reveal some ideas of just how bad things were at the time of Noah (preceding the flood) that Yahweh (GOD) would opt to destroy everything on the earth with the exception of Noah and his seed.

Studying the Complete Book of Enoch, Dr. Jay Winter (ebook), in Chapter Three, “Fallen Angels,” we read information that might give us a better idea of what life was like “as in the days of Noah.”

According to Enoch, a group of 200 angels banded together in Heaven and swore an oath to go to Earth and take wives from the human decedents of Adam. This “Great Sin” resulted in the birth of children who became “giants.”

Genesis 6:4, 1599 Geneva Bible reads: There were giants in the earth in those days: yea, and after that the sons of God came unto the daughters of men, and they had borne them children, these were mighty men, which in old time were men of renown.”

Enoch says these “giants” were 3000 ells tall. According to Google Search a “Biblical ell” is the same as a cubit. A cubit is described as being the approximate length of a man’s arm from his elbow to the tip of his middle finger (perhaps 18 inches.” 3000 ells would equal approximately 4,500 feet. This is difficult to fathom. (The World Trade Center, by comparison, is 1,268 feet.)

The Book of Enoch tells us that these giants, “…consumed all the acquisitions of men…and when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind.”

In addition, the giants “began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another’s flesh, and drink the blood.”

Have you ever wondered how men figured certain things out, if they actually did? For example, which plants to eat and which ones did what to you when you did eat it? Or how about how to extract iron from the ground to make things, or about valuable gems and minerals?

Enoch tells us that “as in the days of Noah,” the giants, “…taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all coloring tinctures.”

We further read, “And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray (the people), and became corrupt in all their ways.

The leaders of tens of the Fallen Angels taught the people certain things. “Semjaza taught enchantments and root-cuttings, Aramaros the resolving of enchantments, Baraqijal taught astrology, Kokabel the constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun, and Sariel the course of the moon.”

The higher angels in Heaven saw what was happening and heard the cries of those people being tormented by the Giants. They spoke with Yahweh and told of some of the things that were going on: [The Fallen Angels] “…hath taught all unrighteousness on earth and revealed the eternal secrets which were in heaven, which men were striving to learn…And they have gone to the daughters of men…and have slept with the women, and have defiled themselves, and revealed to them all kinds of sins. And the women have borne giants, and the whole earth has thereby been filled with blood and unrighteousness.”

With the exceptions of the fact that there are no 4,500-foot giants controlling all things and teaching everyone about all the sins, those “giants” are present today with much power to teach and cause all manner of sin. These powerful may not be 4,500 feet tall but nonetheless they rule over everyone causing all of the same kinds of sin as we saw “as in the days of Noah.”

If the Messiah said he would return when things were “as in the days of Noah,” certainly one has to realize that we are living today much as life was before Yahweh called upon Noah to build an ark to save him and his seed.

Some see it and some don’t. As in the days of Noah, those who saw the evil, cried out to Yahweh and he answered their call.

Call out to Yahweh. Call out loud and without seizing.
