The “Days of Noah” Have Arrived

Twice I have attempted to share with readers about what is meant in the Scriptures, Matthew 24, when the Christ Jesus (Jeshua) told his disciples that signs of the End of Times would be “as in the days of Noah.” In the first of my writings, I attempted to extract from the canonical Scriptures what things were like in the days of Noah. In my second writing, I took a bit of a different approach sharing with readers that as born-again believers in Yahweh (GOD ALMIGHTY) we have a lot to be positive about, as well as thankful and anticipating His Second Coming.

As you might expect, I have uncovered more Scriptures that reveal how things were in the days of Noah in order that readers can better make a comparison with how things were during the days leading up to the Great Flood and how things are in the present. An honest assessment is necessary but somehow I suspect there is little honesty to go around.

In the Second Book of Adam and Eve, after Adam has died, and leadership is passed down through Adam’s bloodline to the first born of each generation, i.e. Adam, Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, and then to Jared, Mahalaleel conveys to his son Jared that his children will disobey the commandment from Yahweh to not intermingle with the children of Cain (the son of Adam who murdered Abel).

The writing shares how life was being spent in the land of the Cainites. Below is that passage, but first I must point out from the canonical Scriptures what it says in Matthew 24 verse 10. Here Jeshua is answering the question from his Apostles as to what will be the signs that will tell us when the end is near. Verse 10 reads: “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.”

When we take an honest assessment of life today, there are few words that can be spoken by anyone that doesn’t offend somebody, causing them to rail on and being accusatory of racism, bigotry, privileged, etc. All of this has resulted in the anger and hatred of one to another; a betrayal of all sorts.

And so, here we are. To deny where we are according to the Scriptures and Yahweh’s prophesies, is the product of blindness. The “Children of God” became blinded by the desires of life with the Cainites and turned their backs on Yahweh. The Scriptures tell us that when the Great Flood happened everyone, except Noah and the other 7 family members, was completely unaware that their judgement was coming.

So is life today.

And now, here is the Scripture of the downfall of the children of Jared leading to the Great Flood – i.e. As in the Days of Noah so shall the coming of the Son of Man be.

Chapter XX.
Ravishing music; strong drink loosed among the sons of Cain. They don
colorful clothing.
The children of Seth look on with longing eyes. They revolt from wise counsel; they descend the mountain into the valley of iniquity. They can not ascend the mountain again.

AFTER Cain had gone down to the land of dark soil, and his children had
multiplied therein, there was one of them, whose name was Genun, son of
Lamech the blind who slew Cain.
2 But as to this Genun, Satan came into him in his childhood; and he made
sundry trumpets and horns, and string instruments, cymbals and psalteries, and lyres and harps, and flutes; and he played on them at all times and at every hour.
3 And when he played on them, Satan came into them, so that from among
them were heard beautiful and sweet sounds, that ravished the heart.
4 Then he gathered companies upon companies to play on them; and when
they played, it pleased well the children of Cain, who inflamed themselves
with sin among themselves, and burnt as with fire; while Satan inflamed their hearts, one with another, and increased lust among them.
5 Satan also taught Genun to bring strong drink out of corn; and this Genun
used to bring together companies upon companies in drink-houses; and
brought into their hands all manner of fruits and flowers; and they drank
together.
6 Thus did this Genun multiply sin exceedingly; he also acted with pride, and taught the children of Cain to commit all manner of the grossest wickedness, which they knew not; and put them up to manifold doings which they knew not before.
7 Then Satan, when he saw that they yielded to Genun and hearkened to him in every thing he told them, rejoiced greatly, increased Genun’s understanding until he took iron and with it made weapons of war.
8 Then when they were drunk, hatred and murder increased among them; one man used violence against another to teach him evil taking his children and defiling them before him.
9 And when men saw they were overcome, and saw others that were not
overpowered, those who were beaten came to Genun, took refuge with him, and he made them his confederates.
10 Then sin increased among them greatly; until a man married his own
sister, or daughter, or mother, and others; or the daughter of his father’s
sister, so that there was no more distinction of relationship, and they no
longer knew what is iniquity; but did wickedly, and the earth was defiled with sin; and they angered God the Judge, who had created them.
11 But Genun gathered together companies upon companies, that played on horns and on all the other instruments we have already mentioned, at the foot of the Holy Mountain; and they did so in order that the children of Seth who were on the Holy Mountain should hear it.
12 But when the children of Seth heard the noise, they wondered, and came by companies, and stood on the top of the mountain to look at those below; and they did thus a whole year.
13 When, at the end of that year, Genun saw that they were being won over to him little by little, Satan entered into him, and taught him to make dyeing – stuffs for garments of divers patterns, and made him understand how to dye crimson and purple and what not.
14 And the sons of Cain who wrought all this, and shone in beauty and
gorgeous apparel, gathered together at the foot of the mountain in splendour, with horns and gorgeous dresses, and horse races, committing all manner of abominations.
15 Meanwhile the children of Seth, who were on the Holy Mountain, prayed and praised God, in the place of the hosts of angels who had fallen; wherefore God had called them ‘angels,” because He rejoiced over them greatly.
16 But after this, they no longer kept His commandment, nor held by the
promise He had made to their fathers; but they relaxed from their fasting and praying, and from the counsel of Jared their father. And they kept on gathering together on the top of the mountain, to look upon the children of Cain, from morning until evening, and upon what they did, upon their beautiful dresses and ornaments.
17 Then the children of Cain looked up from below, and saw the children of
Seth, standing in troops on the top of the mountain; and they called to them to come down to them.
18 But the children of Seth said to them from above, “We don’t know the way.” Then Genun, the son of Lamech, heard them say they did not know the way, and he bethought himself how he might bring them down.
19 Then Satan appeared to him by night, saying, “There is no way for them to come down from the mountain on which they dwell; but when they come tomorrow, say to them, ‘Come ye to the western side of the mountain; there you will find the way of a stream of water, that comes down to the foot of the mountain, between two hills; come down that way to us.”
20 Then when it was day, Genun blew the horns and beat the drums below the mountain, as he was wont. The children of Seth heard it, and came as they used to do.
21 Then Genun said to them from down below, “Go to the western side of the mountain, there you will find the way to come down.”
22 But when the children of Seth heard these words from him, they went back into the cave to Jared, to tell him all they had heard.
23 Then when Jared heard it, he was grieved; for he knew that they would
transgress his counsel.
24 After this a hundred men of the children of Seth gathered together, and
said among themselves, “Come, let us go down to the children of Cain, and see what they do, and enjoy ourselves with them.”
25 But when Jared heard this of the hundred men, his very soul was moved, and his heart was grieved. He then arose with great fervour, and stood in the midst of them, and adjured them by the blood of Abel the just, “Let not one of you go down from this holy and pure mountain, in which our fathers have ordered us to dwell.”
26 But when Jared saw that they did not receive his words, he said unto them, “0 my good and innocent and holy children, know that when once you go down from this holy mountain, God will not allow you to return again to it.”
27 He again adjured them, saying, “I adjure by the death of our father Adam, and by the blood of Abel, of Seth, of Enos, of Cainan, and of Mahalaleel, to hearken to me, and not to go down from this holy mountain; for the moment you leave it, you will be reft of life and of mercy; and you shall no longer be called ‘children of God,’ but ‘children of the devil.’
28 But they would not hearken to his words.
29 Enoch at that time was already grown up, and in his zeal for God, he arose and said, “Hear me, 0 ye sons of Seth, small and great-when ye transgress the commandment of our fathers, and go down from this holy mountain-ye shall not come up hither again for ever.”
30 But they rose up against Enoch, and would not hearken to his words, but
went down from the Holy Mountain.
31 And when they looked at the daughters of Cain, at their beautiful figures, and at their hands and feet dyed with colour, and tattooed in ornaments on their faces, the fire of sin was kindled in them.
32 Then Satan made them look most beautiful before the sons of Seth, as he
also made the sons of Seth appear of the fairest in the eyes of the daughters of Cain, so that the daughters of Cain lusted after the sons of Seth like ravenous beasts, and the sons of Seth after the daughters of Cain, until they committed abomination with them.
33 But after they had thus fallen into this defilement, they returned by the
way they had come, and tried to ascend the Holy Mountain. But they could not, because the stones of that holy mountain were of fire flashing before them, by reason of which they could not go up again.
34 And God was angry with them, and repented of them because they had
come down from glory, and had thereby lost or forsaken their own purity or innocence, and were fallen into the defilement of sin.
35 Then God sent His Word to Jared, saying, “These thy children, whom thou didst call ‘My children,’ – behold they have transgressed My commandment, and have gone down to the abode of perdition, and of sin. Send a messenger to those that are left, that they may not go down, and be lost.”
36 Then Jared wept before the Lord, and asked of Him mercy and forgiveness. But he wished that his soul might depart from his body, rather than hear these words from God about the going down of his children from the Holy Mountain.
37 But he followed God’s order, and preached unto them not to go down from that holy mountain, and not to hold intercourse with the children of Cain.
38 But they heeded not his message, and would not obey his counsel.

First Book of Adam and Eve – Chapter 3

1 God said to Adam, “I have ordained on this earth days and years, and you and your descendants shall live and walk in them, until the days and years are fulfilled; when I shall send the Word that created you, and against which you have transgressed, the Word that made you come out of the garden, and that raised you when you were fallen.
2 Yes, the Word that will again save you when the five and a half days are
fulfilled.”
3 But when Adam heard these words from God, and of the great five and a half days, he did not understand the meaning of them.
4 For Adam was thinking there would be only five and a half days for him until the end of the world.
5 And Adam cried, and prayed to God to explain it to him.
6 Then God in his mercy for Adam who was made after His own image and
likeness, explained to him, that these were 5,000 and 500 years; and how One would then come and save him and his descendants.
7 But before that, God had made this covenant with our father, Adam, in the same terms, before he came out of the garden, when he was by the tree where Eve took of the fruit and gave it to him to eat.
8 Because, when our father Adam came out of the garden, he passed by that tree, and saw how God had changed the appearance of it into another form, and how it shriveled.
9 And as Adam went to it he feared, trembled and fell down; but God in His
mercy lifted him up, and then made this covenant with him.
10 And again, when Adam was by the gate of the garden, and saw the cherub with a sword of flashing fire in his hand, and the cherub grew angry and frowned at him, both Adam and Eve became afraid of him, and thought he meant to put them to death. So they fell on their faces, trembled with fear.
11 But he had pity on them, and showed them mercy; and turning from them went up to heaven, and prayed to the Lord, and said;—
12 “Lord, You sent me to watch at the gate of the garden, with a sword of fire.
13 But when Your servants, Adam and Eve, saw me, they fell on their faces, and were as dead. O my Lord, what shall we do to Your servants?”
14 Then God had pity on them, and showed them mercy, and sent His Angel to keep the garden.
15 And the Word of the Lord came to Adam and Eve, and raised them up.
16 And the Lord said to Adam, “I told you that at the end of the five and a half days, I will send my Word and save you.
17 Strengthen your heart, therefore, and stay in the Cave of Treasures, of which I have before spoken to you.”
18 And when Adam heard this Word from God, he was comforted with that
which God had told him. For He had told him how He would save him.

The First Book of Adam and Eve – Chapter Two

1 But when our father Adam, and Eve, went out of the garden, they walked the ground on their feet, not knowing they were walking.
2 And when they came to the opening of the gate of the garden, and saw the broad earth spread before them, covered with stones large and small, and with sand, they feared and trembled, and fell on their faces, from the fear that came over them; and they were as dead.
3 Because—whereas until this time they had been in the garden land, beautifully
planted with all manner of trees—they now saw themselves, in a strange land, which they knew not, and had never seen.
4 And because, when they were in the garden they were filled with the grace of a bright nature, and they had not hearts turned toward earthly things.
5 Therefore God had pity on them; and when He saw them fallen before the gate of the garden, He sent His Word to our father, Adam and Eve, and raised them from their fallen state.

The First Book of Adam and Eve – Chapter One

1 On the third day, God planted the garden in the east of the earth, on the border of the world eastward, beyond which, towards the sun-rising, one finds nothing but water, that encompasses the whole world, and reaches to the borders of heaven.
2 And to the north of the garden there is a sea of water, clear and pure to the taste, unlike anything else; so that, through the clearness thereof, one may look into the depths of the earth.
3 And when a man washes himself in it, he becomes clean of the cleanness
thereof, and white of its whiteness—even if he were dark.
4 And God created that sea of his own good pleasure, for He knew what would come of the man He would make; so that after he had left the garden, on account of his transgression, men should be born in the earth. Among them are righteous ones who will die, whose souls God would raise at the last day; when all of them will return to their flesh, bathe in the water of that sea, and repent of their sins.
5 But when God made Adam go out of the garden, He did not place him on the border of it northward. This was so that he and Eve would not be able to go near to the sea of water where they could wash themselves in it, be cleansed from their sins, erase the transgression they had committed, and be no longer reminded of it in the thought of their punishment.
6 As to the southern side of the garden, God did not want Adam to live there either; because, when the wind blew from the north, it would bring him, on that southern side, the delicious smell of the trees of the garden.
7 Wherefore God did not put Adam there. This was so that he would not be able to smell the sweet smell of those trees, forget his transgression, and find consolation for what he had done by taking delight in the smell of the trees and yet not be cleansed from his transgression.
8 Again, also, because God is merciful and of great pity, and governs all things in a way that He alone knows—He made our father Adam live in the western border of the garden, because on that side the earth is very broad.
9 And God commanded him to live there in a cave in a rock—the Cave of
Treasures below the garden.
