Why Did God Flood the Earth?

God created the heavens and the earth.  He created man, Adam, to fellowship with him and have dominion over the earth.  Adam fell by disobeying God and lost fellowship with him.

Progressively, sin and evil overtook the earth.  One of the things that happened is that fallen angels had sex with woman and begat giants.    One third (1/3) of the angels were cast out of heaven with satan when he fell because he tried to take over God’s throne.    The offspring of the fallen angels are the types of creatures talked about in mythology…they were “gods” to the human and were a mix of fallen angel and humanity.  The stories of them have come down as myths.

Jesus said in the last days it would be as in the days of Noah.  Now, the new thing they, the ruling elite, are trying to do with humans is transgenderism, which is merging men with machines.  They will try to put chips in people and do various things to interface humans with non human machines or AI (Artificial Intelligence).  This is called the mark of the beast.  So this generation is having to deal again with the attempt to mix human and non human.

In order for there to be a blood line for Jesus to come through, that was pure and not tainted with the blood of fallen angels, God had to destroy fallen mankind up to that point.  Noah’s bloodline was pure enough to be saved.  Noah worshipped the Lord God.  We can see that by his obedience to what God commanded him and the offerings he gave to the Lord.

Eventually, God called out a certain nation, Israel, and gave them certain requirements to keep their national worship to God.  Through the nation of Israel, came the Messiah, Jesus.

But it started with Noah to Abraham, then Isaac, then Jacob, then Moses and the nation of Israel and on to King David and onto Christ.

 

Genesis 6:1 When men began to multiply on the surface of the ground, and daughters were born to them, God’s sons saw that men’s daughters were beautiful, and they took any that they wanted for themselves as wives. Yahweh said, “My Spirit will not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; so his days will be one hundred twenty years.” The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when God’s sons came in to men’s daughters and had children with them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

Yahweh saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of man’s heart was continually only evil. Yahweh was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him in his heart. Yahweh said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the surface of the ground—man, along with animals, creeping things, and birds of the sky—for I am sorry that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in Yahweh’s eyes.

This is the history of the generations of Noah: Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time. Noah walked with God. 10 Noah became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 The earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 God saw the earth, and saw that it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.

13 God said to Noah, “I will bring an end to all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them and the earth. 14 Make a ship of gopher wood. You shall make rooms in the ship, and shall seal it inside and outside with pitch. 15 This is how you shall make it. The length of the ship shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 You shall make a roof in the ship, and you shall finish it to a cubit upward. You shall set the door of the ship in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third levels. 17 I, even I, will bring the flood of waters on this earth, to destroy all flesh having the breath of life from under the sky. Everything that is in the earth will die. 18 But I will establish my covenant with you. You shall come into the ship, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19 Of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ship, to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds after their kind, of the livestock after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every sort will come to you, to keep them alive. 21 Take with you some of all food that is eaten, and gather it to yourself; and it will be for food for you, and for them.” 22 Thus Noah did. He did all that God commanded him.

Matthew 24:1 Jesus went out from the temple, and was going on his way. His disciples came to him to show him the buildings of the temple. But he answered them, “You see all of these things, don’t you? Most certainly I tell you, there will not be left here one stone on another, that will not be thrown down.”

As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? What is the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?”

Jesus answered them, “Be careful that no one leads you astray.For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will lead many astray.You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you aren’t troubled, for all this must happen, but the end is not yet.For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be famines, plagues, and earthquakes in various places.But all these things are the beginning of birth pains.

“Then they will deliver you up to oppression and will kill you. You will be hated by all of the nations for my name’s sake.10 Then many will stumble, and will deliver up one another, and will hate one another.11 Many false prophets will arise and will lead many astray.12 Because iniquity will be multiplied, the love of many will grow cold.13 But he who endures to the end will be saved.14 This Good News of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.

15 “When, therefore, you see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take out the things that are in his house.18 Let him who is in the field not return back to get his clothes.19 But woe to those who are with child and to nursing mothers in those days!20 Pray that your flight will not be in the winter nor on a Sabbath,21 for then there will be great suffering, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever will be.22 Unless those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved. But for the sake of the chosen ones, those days will be shortened.

23 “Then if any man tells you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘There!’ don’t believe it.24 For there will arise false christs, and false prophets, and they will show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen ones.

25 “Behold, I have told you beforehand.

26 “If therefore they tell you, ‘Behold, he is in the wilderness,’ don’t go out; or ‘Behold, he is in the inner rooms,’ don’t believe it.27 For as the lightning flashes from the east, and is seen even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.28 For wherever the carcass is, that is where the vultures gather together.

29 “But immediately after the suffering[c]of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken; 30 and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky. Then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory.31 He will send out his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together his chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

32 “Now from the fig tree learn this parable: When its branch has now become tender and produces its leaves, you know that the summer is near.33 Even so you also, when you see all these things, know that he is near, even at the doors.34 Most certainly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things are accomplished.35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

36 “But no one knows of that day and hour, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only.37 As the days of Noah were, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.38 For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ship,39 and they didn’t know until the flood came and took them all away, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and one will be left.41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and one will be left.42 Watch therefore, for you don’t know in what hour your Lord comes.43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch of the night the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.44 Therefore also be ready, for in an hour that you don’t expect, the Son of Man will come.

45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has set over his household, to give them their food in due season?46 Blessed is that servant whom his lord finds doing so when he comes.47 Most certainly I tell you that he will set him over all that he has.48 But if that evil servant should say in his heart, ‘My lord is delaying his coming,’49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and eat and drink with the drunkards,50 the lord of that servant will come in a day when he doesn’t expect it and in an hour when he doesn’t know it,51 and will cut him in pieces and appoint his portion with the hypocrites. That is where the weeping and grinding of teeth will be.

Begin your journey to peace with God.
