    Days of Noah

    Days of Noah
    When the leaves change colors, then we know the time of year,
    and when the men chase after men, the Lord's return is near.
    As it was in the days of Noah, and in the days of Lot.. Luke17:28
    The end is coming surely -- don't think that it is not!

    This once-great Land of Liberty has become a Land of Shame..
    Because our government officials have disdained the Jesus name.
    Instead of ONE GOD whom we trust; We have to recognize them all!
    And never-mind the Bible Way -- the IRS knows where the 'chips will fall'..

    They live it high upon the hog, with pockets full of [our] money,
    Then 'take the 5th' and disappear, with blessings from their honey...
    His Majesty claims 'Benghazi sound', even when he can't be found..
    Except on TV or the links -- could be, he thinks the Oval Office stinks?

    Stonewalling what he knows so well, and those who doubt can GTH,
    A scalawag down to the roots, and now we see his kind of fruits! Mt7:20
    This once-great Land of Liberty is now a Land of Shame..
    Since Political Correctness has stomped on Jesus name..
    Handing out free 'goodies' to all of those who vote,
    For Him it's only proper to keep his Ship of State afloat.


    From the Sons of Noah to the Daughters of Lot, the Families of Scripture are a tale that is taught!

    The Final One Hundred Years..
    Noah's name means "Comforter" (as in Holy Ghost), and his babies had only one hundred years before the Ark was ready and the rain began.

    There may be other events that compare more favorably with that time period, but World War One (WW1 - 1914-1918) began as the European War and ended up Global. Woodrow Wilson (the 'Educator') was the U.S. President at the time.

    Adam named all the animals and found none 'suitable', so GOD put Adam to sleep and took a rib from him to create Eve. Not until 1Cor15 tells about Jesus being the "2nd Adam" (also seeking a bride, as was Isaac and the 600 Benjamites), were we able to connect the two stories and wonder if WE in the New Covenant aren't being Ribbed also? You think?

    Four (4) couples aboard Noah's Ark, but ONLY two (2) generations unless one of the kids married strangely, because parents and children are different generations. Since Noah didn't have kids till he was 500 years old, his was the Longest Generation in scripture, notwithstanding all the notoriety about Abraham's advanced age before having sons.

    Abraham was ~57 years old when Noah died, so it's possible they met and had a dialogue.. You think?
    There's no mention of Noah's wife, or other children, so Lev18:7 may pertain to what caused Ham to receive such a curse..

    It's certainly fishy that god would be able to create everything in 6 days, but needed to steal a rib to make a woman.

    That is, if you take the stories to be literal.

    A mystery story deposits clues along the way, and entices some to read the whole book, but doesn't tell about the TWO (2 special) covenants until Gal 4:24, and doesn't tell how a thousand years are as One Day until 2Pet3:8, and I'm guessing He reserves the "ribbing" for those who are blessed w The Joy of the Lord! LOL!

    If we do not take every word of the story literally, we should take the lesson of the story. Woman was created second. To all the other of God's creations we are told, he made them male and female and we have no separation in time between the two.

    There is method (wisdom) in what appears foolishness with God. Similarly, the cross is regarded as foolshness (1 Cor 1:18) For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

    There is an echelon that does not change. God, then Jesus, then man, then woman. In the sight of God both men and women are equal when they accept the word of God. In life, there has to be a hierarchy. God always knew a man could be perfect. It was the intention of God to produce (begat) the perfect man and so be vindicated. However, to reach that stage, we cannot have a world solely of men or women. There has to be both sexes in order to multiply, which is what God intended to happen. Adam was made first because God's son would be a man. That is just the principle God has set. Women are physically different to men and are typically the weaker sex physically. A woman's role is for bringing up children while the man has to provide for his wife and is also responsible for teaching. Man and woman by sexual union become one flesh and the taking of Adam's rib is teaching us the lesson that woman is of the flesh of the man. They are the same in that respect.

    God is laying down principles at the beginning which do not change.

    (Eph 5:28-33) So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord, the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

    Eve had the inquisitive mind and her mind was deceived. Adam was not deceived and bore the greater guilt. Therefore, it is by Adam (one man) that sin entered into the world. (Romans 5:18) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. It was always the intention God would provide a way out knowing at some time man would not be perfect until God begat his own Son that would be completely obedient to his commands.

    God has given us the assurance that we can expect eternal life as a result of grace and mercy shown by God toward those who believe in him. (Acts 17:31) whereof he (God) hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

    We now wait the return of Christ to set up God's kingdom and for paradise to be restored and for all the saved ones at the end of the millennial reign of Christ to live for eternity, having been perfected at the resurrection. It is only in Christ that we can win the victory over death (the devil). (1 Cor 15:57) But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

    God's plan does not look foolish to me.

    Miriam: means "rebellious". Sister to Moses & Aaron, who became leprous and was ejected from the camp for seven (7) day period for her criticism of Moses marrying the Ethiopian woman. God said: "If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed?.." Numb 12:14
    No reason given for why Aaron escaped similar punishment, but synecdoche may play a part. The "7" of the OT like the first seven that Jacob served for Rachel was stressing the 'male first' period. It's the second seven; the "Leah 7", that pertains to the fruitful female period.

    Similar to the account of the fig tree cursed by Jesus -- Trees of Righteousness are supposed to bear fruit and people who appear to be christians but aren't bearing fruit (as women are 'land', Jer3:1 and designed to be 'fruitful'), represent the NT period.
