Due to the length and detail of this study, it will be in 2 parts:
Genesis 9:11-15 KJV
11 And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
If you’ve turned on the news at all in the past few months you may have seen quite a bit of news pertaining to floods here in the U.S. Floods happen worldwide each year, and they have for thousands of years, but God promised He would never destroy the Earth with water again (Genesis 9:11-15). As devastating as these floods are, and as deadly as some may be, there is a bigger flood that is coming in the end times, and it will cause death to the spiritual body for those that get taken in it.
As we know in the bible there were two major floods. The katabole (Genesis 1:2, Jeremiah 4) and Noah’s flood (Genesis 5:32-10:1). We will be doing a deeper study on the katabole at a later date, but today were mainly going to focus on Noah’s flood because it relates to the flood of the end times.
Matthew 24:37-39 KJV
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 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,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
There were many evil things going on in Noah’s time, Genesis 6, and Jude 1 tell you exactly what was taking place, and why God told Noah to build an ark. The fallen angels came down to mate with daughters of men which is where the giants (nephilim/geber) came from.
Genesis 6:2-4 KJV
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Jude 1:4-6 KJV
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
God was angered that this took place in the same way he was angered about the sin going on in Sodom and Gomorrah, and it is also compared to the flood of Noah and what will be taking place in the end times.
Luke 17:28-30 KJV
28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
So the earth in the days of Noah was full of people who rejected God and walked after their own flesh and served their own interests. And the earth was full of violence. And what about during Lot’s day in Sodom? God’s Word says that the people of Sodom had given themselves over to sexual fornication and ‘strange flesh’, which is homosexuality. So Jesus is saying that the world in the end times would ‘mirror’ what it was like in the days of Noah and Lot. Do we have a world like that today? Absolutely!
Not only do we live in a world full of violence and sexual immorality, including homosexuality. These things have become the ‘norm’ with violence and sexual immorality being turned into ENTERTAINMENT!!!
Things were so bad back in Noah’s day that God even repented of making mankind on earth. We cannot imagine the anguish of our loving Heavenly Father when He looked down upon the earth and saw no one (except Noah & his family) living a Godly life, and I would imagine His heart is saddened by what is going on in the world today.
Genesis 6:5-6 KJV
5 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.
6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
So now that we have established why there was a flood in Noah’s time, let’s move on to the flood that will take place in the end times, the very times we are living in right now. The flood of the end times is not a physical flood, but a spiritual flood. We are building up to this flood right now with all the false doctrine that is being preached in churches today. The flood of the end times is a flood of lies, the lies Satan (the antichrist, the son of perdition) will use to get the whole world to whore after him.
Revelation 12:9 KJV
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Why will the whole world be deceived? Because Satan (antichrist) will be here on earth pretending that he is God.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 KJV
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Satan will be here at the 6th trump with his fallen angels, and he will deceive the whole world into believing that he is Christ. The only ones who won’t fall for his flood of lies are God’s elect, those who know the false Christ comes first. They know the true Christ does not return until the 7th trump.
1 Corinthians 15:50-52 KJV
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Did you notice what it said in verse 52? It said at the LAST trump, the furthest one out, that is the 7th trump. Christ will return at the 7th trump. Satan comes at the 6th trump. Most churches today teach that Christ comes first to “rapture” Christians out of here, but that is part of the flood of lies that Satan wants everyone believing. That is why the whole world will be deceived. They are looking for Christ to come first instead of Satan, and it does not say that anywhere in God’s word. So what will happen when Christ returns at the 7th trump? We will all be changed into our incorruptible bodies, that is our spiritual bodies. We have 2 bodies, the flesh body, and the spirit body. When we put on the incorruptible, we are no longer in our flesh body.
1 Corinthians 15:40 KJV
40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
The celestial body is your spiritual body, and the terrestrial body is your flesh body. Paul is telling you in this verse that within what you call “self”, you have two bodies, an earthly body that will die off and return to the elements that it is made of, and a heavenly body or soul that at the death of the earthly body returns to the heavenly realm or dimension that it came from. Each of the bodies have their own glory or dignity and honor.
Jesus tells his disciples in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 exactly what to expect before His return.
1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
The disciples were pointing out how magnificent the buildings were, and Jesus is letting them know that when He returns, there won’t be one stone left standing there. All these stones, every last one of them will be turned to dust! God tells us in Zechariah 14 exactly what this will be like on the day the our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ returns.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
The disciples are asking Jesus what to expect before Christ returns, what signs to watch for so they know when His return is near. The first thing Christ warns them of is that there will be people who come along and try to deceive followers of Christ. Satan was a scripture lawyer, and knew scripture very well, but he would always twist it just a little at the end trying to deceive. There are many pastors and preachers doing this very same thing today by teaching false doctrine, part of the flood of lies in the end time. Very rarely will you find a church that teaches the true word of God chapter by chapter, verse by verse. In this chapter Jesus will be laying out for you the 7 events/7 seals that we all need to be watching for. So what can you do to keep yourself from being deceived? You need to get into the word yourself, trust in no man. There is no way to know what the word really says or means unless you get into the word of God on your own. Make sure you are also looking in the Strong’s Concordance so you can look up the original Greek and Hebrew to help you understand God’s word better.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Throughout history there have been many wars, but the last 100 years there have been wars literally all over the world. Now with new technology you don’t even have to send troops to a country to attack. It can be done at the push of a button. There have also been rumors of wars, lies about things that never happened, and false flag events created to stir up the people. There have been more earthquakes and disease than there ever was before. The word sorrows here means birth pangs. The word is used only here and in Mark 8, and marks the beginning of the travail of childbirth. The number in Strong’s Dictionary is 5604, and this is important, because it reflects the intervals between the events of the signs of the end times. It’s just like a woman in labor. The closer she gets to delivering the child, the closer together the labor pains or contractions get. The closer we get to Christ’s return, the closer together the events that take place before His return happen.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Because you will know that the Antichrist, Satan, is not Christ, and you will be siding with God, and the two witnesses, your family, friends, ect. will deliver you up to death. Death is one of Satan’s names (Hebrews 2:14) and you will be delivered up to him to be a testimony for Christ (Mark 13:9). They won’t be killing anyone at this time. You wouldn’t be able to speak against Satan and for Christ if you are killed. You will be browbeaten at this time because everyone in the world is deceived into believing that Satan is Christ, and they hate you because you speak against him. Satan also won’t be killing anyone because he is trying to be like Christ. No one would believe he is Christ if he was going around slaying people.
12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.
13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.
18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
Notice what it said in Luke 21:18….”But there shall not an hair of your head perish.” God always protects His own. This is the destiny of God’s elect. During this time that they are delivered up, the Holy Spirit will speak through them. This is when the TRUE word of God will be spoken. Most churches today are teaching traditions of men that make void the word of God. They teach you that you don’t need to know the book of revelation because you will be flying out of here in the “rapture.” They don’t tell you what actually happened in the garden of Eden. They just let everyone believe that Eve ate an apple and that was the sin. They celebrate and teach pagan holidays instead of God’s Holy days. The preachers teaching these things are false prophets. Many think that through satellites and internet that the word has been preached all over the world, but it hasn’t because it has not been the true word of God. When the Saints are delivered up and the Holy Spirit speaks through them like it spoke through the apostles on Pentecost, everyone in every nation will understand what they say in their own language down to the very dialect. This is when they will know the TRUE word of God. Even the gainsayers will believe.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
Verse 15 is speaking about Daniel 9:27. The “abomination” is when Satan stands in Jerusalem, and proclaims that he is God, and the world believes it.
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
The “desolation” is an incorrect translation into the English, which should read “desolator”, and Satan is the desolator that will make the claim that he is God, the true Christ. “Desolation” is a condition, in the Hebrew manuscripts it is written, “On the wings of the desolator,” this is not a condition, but a entity, a person. It is through this individual, Satan that the abomination shall come from. It is the desolator, Satan that shall cause all but the sealed of God, to become desolate, or deceived.
Jesus then tells the disciples that when Satan, the Antichrist is here that you should flee to the mountains. Satan only has a short time here, and Jesus lets them know that when Satan is here pretending to be Christ that you won’t have to worry about packing anything or taking anything with you.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
It’s not talking about those who actually have children or are nursing children during Satan’s reign as Antichrist in verse 19. This woe is for those who are spiritually in bed with Satan, that is, they are no longer spiritual virgins for Christ because they are whoring after Antichrist and nursing along his works. They have left their first husband (Christ) and they are worshiping Satan because they believe him to be Christ.
Praying that your flight is not in the winter means that you don’t want to be harvested in the winter, or out of season. It is important for you to know the season that Christ will return. No one knows the day or the hour, but we should all know the season which is why Jesus gave us these signs to look for.
There are 2 tribulations, and this one that is spoken of is the tribulation of Satan, the one who will deceive the whole world, and it will be a great tribulation! The book of Joel tells us what will take place during this tribulation. This tribulation of Satan has been shortened for the sake of the elect, and we know by reading Revelation 9:5 & 9:10 that this time was shortened to a 5 month period.
5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
This also relates to the flood in Noah’s time as it was 5 months as well:
3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Satan is a supernatural being, and because of this he will be able to perform miracles. This is how he will be able to deceive so many.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
Because everyone will be deceived and believe he is Christ, they will be saying, “he is here.” We pointed out earlier in this teaching what will happen when Christ returns at the last trump. You will be in your spiritual body, so as long as you are in your flesh body still, know that the true Christ has not returned. When Christ truly returns, EVERYONE will know it, and it will happen very quickly just like a strike of lightening.
Eagles in verse 28 should actually be translated to vultures, and what do vultures do? They are scavengers, they prey on the dead. This verse is speaking of those that are spiritually dead, and these vultures, Satan’s vultures will be feeding on the spiritually dead.
