Is There an Upside to “As in the Days of Noah?”

I’ve written before about the warning signs that Christ Jesus (Immortality to the flesh) told his disciples when they asked him when he would return again. Matthew 24: 37-39 says, “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.

In my previous writing, due, in part, to my own ignorance and partly due to my negative character, my focus was and has mostly been on all the negative aspects of what things are going to be like that would prompt the return of Jesus Christ (flesh to Immortality).

(Note: Take notice that verse 39 says that the people living in that day prior to the Great Flood, “knew nothing , till the flood came and took them all away.” Christ Jesus likens his second coming to that event, i.e. that He will return and the people will know nothing until it happens.)

With much prayer and supplication, the Spirit of Truth has guided me along at a pace at which only He knows I can handle. I think I have discovered that there is also an upside or a good side, if you will, that applies to “in the days of Noah.” Let’s look.

In order to understand Noah and the Great Flood, we must understand the Creator of All Things and the Word of God, for Jesus Christ is the Word.

We can find in several places throughout the canonical Scriptures where God said he was the Alpha and the Omega – the Beginning and the End. We read in Revelation 22:13“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”

See also Revelation 1:8; Revelation 21:6,7; Revelation 1:17,18; Isaiah 44:6; and this verse found in Isaiah 48:12“Hear me, O Jacob and Israel, my called, I am, I am the first, and I am the last.” How can God Almighty be both the beginning and the end, the alpha and omega, unless He never changes?

In James 1:7, we get but one example that tells us that not only is God the beginning and the end but that He never changes: “Every good giving and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”

If God never changes and if He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End, then what is in the Beginning will also be in the End. The disciple Thomas writes (Apocrypha Scriptures) that when they asked Christ Jesus “…how will our end come,” Jesus replied, “Have you found the beginning, then, that you are looking for the end? You see, the end will be where the beginning is.

“Congratulations to the one who stands at the beginning: that one will know the end and will not taste death.”

We know that Yahweh (God Almighty) chose to destroy what he had created with the Great Flood. He decided to send a flood and destroy it all, except Genesis 6:8 tells us that “Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord” and ordered Noah to build an Ark where he and seven others were spared.

If the Second Coming will be “as in the days of Noah,” then we must consider all aspects of what it was like in the days of Noah in addition to all the terrible bad things that had happened and were happening.

Among all of the terrible sin, God looked upon Noah and “found grace.” In other words, he saw something in Noah nobody else had, otherwise wouldn’t they also have been saved?

If the beginning is like the end, then to understand the end that is coming we must understand the beginning.

God will destroy this fleshly existence. Some will gain everlasting life, others will not. Those who will not will be those that “knew nothing” until it had happened. In today’s existence, can God find another Noah? Are all of us “as in the days of Noah” that we know nothing about His Second Coming? Will He “find Grace” in some of us?

In the beginning was the Word and nothing was hidden. I have learned that throughout history, some, for sinister reasons, decided to hide many of the Scriptures, the inspired Word of God, that man would be incapable of unlocking the mysteries that would gain us the eternal life, and to allow evildoers and the “churches” to carry on their own agendas of Satan’s work while attempting to hide behind the false security of presenting themselves as God’s Church. In Luke 11 we can read of Christ Jesus chastising the Scribes, Pharisees, and Lawyers, during a feast by the Pharisees, for keeping the Truth from the people. They began a process to hide the Word of God. The Churches have carried on that tradition over the centuries, leaving churches to misguide, mislead, and bear poor fruit.

However, the Word of God promised that nothing can be hidden and that there would be a restoration of those lost Scriptures during the “Latter Rain.” Luke 8:17 reads: “For nothing is secret, that shall not be evident: neither anything hid, that shall not be known, and come to light.”

Also in Luke 8, Christ Jesus tells the Parable of the Sower. This is clearly a parable within a parable to those who might hear. In brief, the parable of the sower is about a sower, sowing his seeds and how some fall by the wayside, others upon the rocks, while yet others within the thorns, and finally the seeds that fall on good soil and produce well.

As a bit of a rarity, Christ Jesus explains the parable, but within His explanation, we can find another parable. Understand that in His explanation He tells us in part, in verse 12, that the seeds that fell by the way, “are they” (meaning in reference to the kinds of people) who hear God’s Word (seeds). The verse further explains that after they “hear” the Word, Satan comes along and “taketh away the Word out of their hearts.”

When the Scribes, Pharisees, Lawyers, and church leaders decided certain Scriptures did not belong in their bibles, they removed them; they “taketh away the Word,” and hid it in order that they not believe or believe the wrong and incomplete Truth.

What was once hidden is now being revealed.

If we give honest examination to the way things are in the world today, they really are not unlike “as in the days of Noah.” But can God find another Noah? Or can God find many “Noahs” that have sought and found the keys that will unlock the “hidden” Word of God? Will we find “grace” in the eyes of our Creator? Will we be truly saved?

I believe that we are in that process of restoration now, that many have commenced to find the beginning as they are looking for the end. The end must be as the beginning. Once we are there, we can rest. Once they find the beginning and there are enough “Noahs” to fulfill Yahweh’s quota of “The Elect,” then we will commence the promised 7th Millennium…that Day of Rest.

So be it!

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.
