Hi Bob & All.... BOB! You're totally seeing it...I'm just going to add in how the parts I've seen, and how it's been shown to me, totally correlate....
ALSO, because we're looking at "as it was in the days of Noah...," here's more on what was happening (and this also ties in with what Charisma noted on the #58 in Deut 29:29 thread; Grace = 58):

There is indeed much information surrounding this first mention that is also central to this whole revelation. As we dig deeper into this, keep in mind the following:
• Jesus said, 'As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the coming (parousia/presence) of the Son of Man.'
• Noah is Grace spelled backwards in Hebrew—a picture of reflection
• Noah means 'Rest'
• Noah is referred to as being 'perfect' – this word means, 'whole, ‘without spot or blemish,’ complete' and is associated with being full of Truth.
• Noah Walked with God
• Noah was instructed to build an Ark, the dimensions of which were 300 cubits long (20x15 and equivalent to 450 ft, which is 30x15), 50 cubits wide (equivalent to 75’ or 5x15’), and 30 cubits high (2x15 -- equivalent to 45 ft. [3 x 15=45]). 300 cubits length times 50 cubits width made its floor space 15,000 square cubits. Furthermore, the instructions for the dimensions are found in Genesis chapter 6, Verse 15 (not a coincidence!). So the dimensions of the Ark were all multiples of 15 (5+5+5). Keep that in mind as we proceed. And if that’s not enough '15’s' to capture your attention about this—when the flood reached its peak, it was 15 cubits (22’) above the mountains and the water covered the earth for 150 days (Gen. 7:20,24).
I don't know if you saw my thread on Tim Tebow (#15, Quarterback for Denver Broncos), but I was pointing out the relations there, too. Te-BOW = Tav (22nd) - BOW
"I will put my BOW in the CLOUDS...."
This is all RIGHT ON THE MONEY!!

Link to Tebow (T - BOW) thread:
And it is just increasing and increasing...Kathryn emailed me about her daughter getting an "unexpected check for $1500" 15 x 100/fullness.
Here's some of what I wrote on that in my 555 book:
"Moreover, dunameoos, which is the genitive case of dunamis, adds to 1500 (15x100, 'fullness,' 100-fold, etc.). This is way beyond coincidence that both forms of this word reflect the number 15 (dunamis adds to 555), and highly significant prophetically. The content of the verses containing dunameoos also reflect this:
Matt 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. KJV
Matt 26:64 Jesus said to him, "It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven." NKJV
(The above two verses are also repeated in Mark & Luke: Mk 13:26; Mk 14:62; Lk 21:27; Lk 22:69)
Can it get any more exciting?!
He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. Eph 1:9-10
