“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
PART 4 – 10 OBSERVATIONS
ON PRE-FLOOD RELIGION AND CIVILIZATION AND THE END TIMES
It’s been said the devil and his many minions attack Genesis and Revelation (the first and last books in the Bible) hardest of all the Bible’s books. This is to confuse man, not only on where he has been, but also on where he is headed.
Some observations on the pre-flood civilization and religion and its various aspects; what the Bible says about the pre-flood time and the end times; and, why it is important to believers.
This will no doubt be a big bite of information for some. But it is broken down into a number of easily-digested pieces.
Some are based on various discussions over the past month or so, and some are not. At some point, some of these points likely will be revisited and expanded upon.
1- The Bible declares (in several places) there will be a return to the government and religion of the pre-flood times during the days before Jesus Christ returns.
“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be…and there is no new thing under the sun.”
Okay, so those two references are general in nature. But there’s other places where it’s more specific.
“And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.”
There was not one place it was not corrupt on the earth.
That’s a government project. Or rather, that’s a joint project of government and religion.
But there’s one place in the Bible that’s even more specific.
2- The beast (system) that was will be again.
The Bible “commentators” and “teachers” (and other mouthpieces of the dragon) have turned the two beasts of Revelation 13 into people. They are not people: they are systems: one political and the other religious.
The reader can know this for himself by reading the explanation the angel gives John in Revelation 17.
“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”
3- The reader can also know this beast system was used before the flood by Revelation 17.
“The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”
“Was, is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit…”
So the beast (system/empire) was (had been at one time), is not (was not around at the time John was receiving the Revelation) and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit (there never was a worldwide system of government after the flood. Why? Because God had it consigned to the abyss.)
The angel gives even more details.
“And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.”
The angels tells John of seven kings (empires): five had already fallen (different commentators argue over which particular five great empires these are), one is (the Roman-Greco empire at the time of John) and the other had not yet come.
The empire that was to come (the seventh)?
Could be the British-American one of the past several hundred years.
Though this was also said of the short-lived Spanish empire which arose before the British.
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition”?
That is the coming one-world empire.
Commentators attribute the past (the beast which was) world empire to one of the historical empires after the flood (Assyrian, Egyptian, Babylonian, Persian, Grecian, etc.) by saying the Bible means “the KNOWN world.”
The only time the entire earth was ruled by one government was before the flood.
4- Though the Bible declares the time before the flood as “great wickedness,” the wicked naturally see this time as a golden age.
The wicked, lost and deceived view the days of Noe (Noah) much differently than the Word of God portrays that time.
The Word of God declares that those days were filled with violence and wickedness.
“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
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 his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”
–Genesis 6:5-7, 11-13
Likewise, the time immediately before Jesus Christ returns will also be a time of great wickedness and sin. The whole world will worship the man of sin, even though the mouth of the beast will blaspheme the God of heaven and all that is holy.
“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
PART FIVE: Mysteries of the Pre-Flood Civilization
So before Jesus Christ returns, the world will once more be almost completely filled with sin, corruption and wickedness. However, the wicked will see that time as a Utopia; a “heaven on earth.”
5- Fables, such as Atlantis, refer to the time before the flood.
The fables of the wicked include tales of Atlantis (one of the stronger pre-flood components which was submerged by the waters of the sea) and New Atlantis, esoteric writer “[Francis] Bacon’s vision for a Utopian New World in North America.”
Written in 1627, this story about a faux Christian country which is, in reality, ruled by members of a secret society. There is a STRONG resemblance between Bacon’s New Atlantis and the country which is known as the United States of America.
Francis Bacon played a leading role in creating the English colonies, especially in Virginia, the Carolinas, and Newfoundland in northeastern Canada. His government report on “The Virginia Colony” was submitted in 1609. In 1610 Bacon and his associates received a charter from the king to form the Tresurer and the Companye of Adventurers and planter of the Cittye of London and Bristoll for the Collonye or plantacon in Newfoundland and sent John Guy to found a colony there. In 1910 Newfoundland issued a postage stamp to commemorate Bacon’s role in establishing the province. The stamp describes Bacon as “the guiding spirit in colonization scheme” of 1610.
Atlantis was said to have been submerged into the sea. This happened to other parts of the pre-flood civilization as well.
The ancient religion of the pre-flood years was wicked and demonic in nature. The remnants of that ancient religion’s priesthood survive until today, still deceiving and leading men astray and still being deceived by that which they worship: illegitimate supernatural power.
6- When the wicked refer to “freedom” and “liberty,” they are referring to that wicked time before the flood when they had “freedom” from the precepts of God Almighty.
When one of their number refers to an “ancient hope” they are referring to a return of the way it was before the flood.
“We have confidence because freedom is the permanent hope of mankind, the hunger in dark places, the longing of the soul. When our Founders declared a new order of the ages, when soldiers died in wave upon wave for a union based on liberty, when citizens marched in peaceful outrage under the banner “Freedom Now,” they were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled.”
—George W Bush, Second Inauguration Speech, 1-20-2005
There are other ways the reader can know the coming world government and religious system existed on the earth previously.
7 – The only surviving structures of the time before the flood are found throughout the ENTIRE earth.
These great stone structures are described as being megalithic. They are many times composed of stones so large, modern man has no way of moving them, even with modern equipment.
These structures are found throughout the entire world: North and South America, Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia and on various islands, both isolated (Nan Madol) and populated (Stonehenge). A great many of these structures lie submerged off the coasts of North America, India and Japan, among other places.
Some of the pyramid-type structures still remaining are very similar to each other and are located in Egypt, other parts of Africa, as well as in North and South America.
Of course, NONE of the many sources of information about such “mysteries” propose that these are the remnants of the pre-flood civilization.
8- There is an entire academic, cultural and media group dedicated to misleading men away from the real origin of these pre-flood megalithic structures (and other pre-flood artifacts). Any number of deceptions have been used to distract men from their true origins.
Sometimes, it is said that these structures were built using any number of discredited, ridiculous theories (e.g., Man used to have a lot of time on his hands.)
Sometimes, these structures and their stories are claimed to be hundreds of thousands (often MILLIONS), of years old. Their origins and how they were built is claimed to be “lost to history.”
Some are said to be “mysteries” to science.
Increasingly, these structures are used as proof that “ancient aliens” used to frequent the earth in time long past. In the case of artifacts which have been found composed of metals modern man STILL has no knowledge of (at least publicly), various combinations of the previously-mentioned deceptions are used.
The reader could easily devote hundreds of hours of research to these topics: both the artifacts and their deceptive explanations litter the Internet.
9- There are ancient records of how these huge stones (some weighing hundreds of tons) were moved.
From Peru to Central America to the South Pacific islands to Egypt to the Middle East and elsewhere: there exist ancient records telling how these great stones were moved. In every case, they were moved by demonic power.
The old records don’t call it demonic power (though in many cases, the people who moved these great stones were sometimes called “gods”). The records refer to usually some sort of “vibrations” or “psychokinesis” (both code words for the demonic) in many cases caused by musical instruments of some kind. In one case, the stones were said to have been moved by whistling.
10- Though remnants of the ancient priesthood still survive among various secret societies and cults, as well as in science and esoteric groups, much of the pre-flood knowledge has remained hidden to the public.
Still, there is one case of modern man using these same methods to move quite large stones–and doing it publicly: the Coral Castle in Florida.
So, these structures are located throughout the entire earth and it’s recorded that they were moved by demonic power. This confirms the religion used before the flood was worldwide.
It also helps confirm upon what the coming one-world religion will be based.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
Is the reader busy living his life? Has he listened to cunningly-devised fables? Will sudden destruction overtake him?
“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
There is yet still time to enter the kingdom of heaven.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
