Days of Noah

Complimentary Story

   “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.”  (Matthew 24:37).

   This oft-quoted verse is usually the proof text for all sorts of alt-news, fringe fodder, and conspiratorial musings. In the days of Noah there were Watchers copulating with human women, Nephilim giants being spawned, genetic mutations and experiments, hybrids, occult rituals, the worship of false gods, and every manner of sin, wickedness, evil, and iniquity all throughout the earth. Therefore, it’s all coming back, and this is all our children and grandchildren have to look forward to. Right?  

   I have no doubt that the end of days will carry with it a fair share of eye-popping, jaw-dropping frightening revelations and experiences — especially for those with no fear of God (or common sense). But when Matthew writes of the “days of Noah,” is an “attack of the killer tomatoes” scenario what he had in mind?

   Matthew 24 is a chapter all about perilous times. Or is it? Well, partially — 28 verses of it to be exact. But the chapter doesn’t end at verse 28. Verse 29-31 shifts gears and talks about the glorious return of the Messiah and the gathering of His elect from the four winds. Verses 32-41 is a parabolic section where the comparison is drawn between the ripening of a fig tree and the signaling of a new season. So also did the forewarnings of Noah foretell of a changing season — a season that the hard hearted and the rebellious chose to ignore. 

   But Matthew 24 is telling us what the days of Noah were (and would be) like for those who are not in covenant with Yahweh. But what do the days of Noah look like through the lens of the bride? 

   Perhaps Isaiah 54:9-10 can shed some light on the subject.

   “For this is like the days of Noah to Me, When I swore that the waters of Noah would not flood the earth again; So I have sworn that I will not be angry with you nor rebuke you. For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, but My favor will not be removed from you, nor will My covenant of peace be shaken,” says the LORD who has compassion on you.

   Do you see this? For sinners, the days of Noah remind us of the flood; but for Almighty God, the days of Noah remind Him of the covenant!

   According to Isaiah, the pre-incarnate Messiah will return, not to destroy, but to woo, Zion, His bride! Like the knight in shining armor that rides into the midst of battle to rescue the beautiful princess — so will Yeshua ride in, victorious, in the midst of the battle; and He, too, will remember the covenant of peace made with His chosen people. 

    What were the days of Noah like? It depends on who you ask! The Watchers, now relegated to the Abyss will tell you it was a time of judgment and imprisonment in Tartaroo. To the Nephilim, it was a time of death and terrestrial imprisonment in a disembodied state. To the men and women who refused to heed Noah’s warnings, it was a time of physical death. But to Noah and his family, it was a time of rescue, vindication, and salvation!

   The phrase “the days of Noah” has become a bit of a trigger word these days, evoking all sorts of horrors of impending doom as the earth is subjected to a brutal satanic takeover. But this is just yet another tactic of the enemy to kill, steal, and destroy.

   According to the words of Isaiah, the return of the days of Noah, for Believers, will be the culmination of every birth pang felt by every follower of Christ since the day of Genesis 3:15; when a promise was made that One was coming who would swallow death for good. When the great and holy Swallower of Death returns to the earth, this will not be a day of terror and judgment for those who have longed for His coming. This will be a day of victory. Resolution. Joy. Celebration. Fulfillment. Salvation. A reunion — a betrothal — a consummation. 

   See how the devil takes the day of our emancipation and churns it into a day of dread? Do you see his thieving fingerprints on this strategy? Jesus taught us to pray, “Thy kingdom come,” but Satan hisses, and our hearts grow cold with fear over the very day we are commanded to eagerly await. 

   Let us resolve as a People, to be a happy people. We are a chosen race! A people loved by God!  We have nothing to fear — not even the days of Noah.
