Bible Study – Days of Noah
Bible Study Days of Noah vs. Today
“Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were pleasing; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. And Jehovah said, My Spirit shall not continually strive with man, for indeed it is in flesh to sin; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years. There were giants on the earth in those days. And also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them, these were the mighty men from antiquity, men of renown. And Jehovah saw that the evil of man was great on the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all day long. And Jehovah regretted that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved to His heart. And Jehovah said, I will obliterate man whom I have created from off the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and flying creatures of the heavens, for I regret having made them. But Noah found favor in the eyes of Jehovah. These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generation. Noah walked with God. And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and behold it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them along with the earth.” Genesis 6:1-13
The question being answered today is whether or not we are living in times like the days of Noah. The obvious answer is ‘Yes’ as Shannon blurted out last week. The purpose of this study is took take a more in depth look into what the days of Noah where like and then look at the prophecy Jesus stated in the Gospels then go on from there in a comparison.
What things do we see in the Genesis chapter 6 account?
1.) Men where becoming multiplied.
2.) The ‘sons of God’ took wives for themselves.
3.) Giants on the earth.
4.) The ‘sons of God’ reproduced through women.
5.) The evil of man was great on the earth.
6.) ‘every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all day long’
7.) ‘The earth was corrupt before God.’
8.) ‘…and the earth was filled with violence.’
9.) ‘…all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.’
In verse 13 God says that He ‘will destroy them along with the earth.’
So now we are going to jump ahead to the prophecy from the Gospels.
“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and did not realize until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Matthew 24:37-39
“And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:26-29
The account recorded in Luke also records alongside the comparison the ‘days of Lot’. This study is not going to focus on that but keep that in the back of your mind and read about the days of Lot in the Old Testament.
So breaking apart the two accounts of Jesus’s words in the Gospels this is what we have:
1.) ‘as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.’
2.) They were eating drinking, marrying, until the day that Noah entered into the ark.
3.) They did not realize until the flood came AND took them all away.
4.) The coming of the Son of Man will be like that also.
First let’s take a look at the ‘sons of God’ and their interbreeding with women, giants and compare that briefly with what we know currently. We have talked about this recently in depth so I will just simply refresh your memory here that indeed science is playing with not only manipulating the genetics of plants but also animals. They have created animals and human hybrids and have talked about inserting a human brain into a mouse or giving another animal human feet. These creatures that man create is reminiscent of the day of Noah where our mythology that we have read about is indeed not that far fetched. These creations of man can not be Saved. What about giants?
I have yet to come across whether or not giants have been created but can only speculate that mythological type creatures have most likely been created in labs run by governments around the world. Nearly all of the information that comes out regarding these sorts of things is in the public science domain and not from top secret government projects. We know that the government science is decades ahead of the public science so thus should be able to conclude that despite the lack of evidence of giants in today’s society the government has likely created them under the public radar.
Next we will look into ‘every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was evil all day long’ and ‘…the earth was filled with violence.’ The recent American Music Awards ceremony had Adam Lambert playing one of his songs live with a very satanic, openly perverse and homosexual contact. This was on televisions throughout the US and saw by the young and old. Recently I read that in the past 4 years the amount of profanity on television has increased 100 fold. Things are getting bad and getting bad quickly. In Michigan we hold some of the most dangerous cities in the US. We now here frequently about mass killings being committed with the most recent one in Florida where a man shot his wife and three children dead on Thanksgiving. Our cities are filled with violence as is most of the world. The movies and television shows being put out reflect that men have evil in their hearts and dwell on that all day long. We can’t just blame Hollywood because the American people watching such things is what keep them producing them. Our society morals are in the toilet, families are destroyed and the true God is rarely to be found in society.
The fact that men did not realize until the flood came AND took them away is surely reminiscent of the days we live in. Here we have a show called ‘V’ that literally is barely masking the reality of what is going on with some fictional plot and no one seems to quite get that. The warnings of those who are watchmen go unabated and men continue on down the sewer of lies, believing the lies and propagating those same lies. Surely they will believe whatever lie the governments put out to explain the disappearance of Christians from the earth at the start of the tribulation. They have been prepped for it unaware, they have enjoyed the evil and will continue to believe the lies.
Yes, the days of today are certainly like the days of Noah. We are in the last days, the last times and soon Jesus will come for us. Until then we must follow Jesus.
“Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.” Genesis 6:22
We must do all that God has commanded us to do. We must live holy and righteous lives loving the Most High with all of our heart, soul and body, serving His Son Jesus Christ until our time to exit these bodies and dwell with Him in Heaven has come.
