Stairway To Heaven In Noah’s Ark

Stairway To Heaven In Noah’s Ark


The story of Noah’s ark and the flood epic is one of the oldest nursery legends in the world and it has captivated the imaginations of children and adults alike throughout the ages. From childhood memories one may recollect that God sent the deluge to destroy all the evil people upon the earth. It is known that Noah and his family were saved by departing on a titanic ark with every species of animals and birds on board the floating zoo. The ark began its maiden voyage on the 17th day of the second month when the rain began and it lasted for the proverbial 40 days and 40 nights.

Celestial Knowledge Of The Flood Saga

Some of the more precise details after that may be a little sketchy but the Book of Genesis tells that the waters started to rise on the earth over a period of 150 days. Few will remember hearing of so many days, but they may recall that the tops of the mountains finally disappeared below the waves. Perhaps children rub their sleepy eyes when they listen to how the ark docked on Mount Ararat and miss out on the fact that it was on the 17th day of the seventh month.

Noah’s ark seemed so real then right up to where the saga ended with a rainbow on the horizon. It was the ultimate image of a colourful finale but never did anyone realize that there was a magical formula of celestial knowledge of the heavens on display in the timing details of the flood saga. Those timing details listed particulars days and specific months together with the length of periods in days. It was very mysterious how the dates and periods were so precise as if they adhered to a deliberately planned timetable.

The Riddle Of Noah’s Age

The first sign that there was some time amiss in the flood story was with an anomaly with the ages of Noah and his son Shem. It stated in the Book of Genesis that Noah was 500 years old when he became the father of triplets, one of whom was Shem. It also outlined that the flood finished on the end of Noah’s 600th year.

Hi Everyone,

As a believer I believe in The Bible and what it testifies to in Genesis and Jubilees (apparently, the Lesser Genesis Book), so I've never seen it as an Nursery Rhyme but, it never crossed my mind to begin with other people might.

I think in human circles the feeling is more like just how bad was it that God or in the case of the Ancient World's Spiritual belief system gods nearly destroyed Earth over it.

I admit, I Faithfully believed that The Flood was for The best; and Still Do in God's Eyes things had gotten way out of control with Earth so ravaged by Sin.

In Genesis alone there is a grim picture of the State of the World. It always left me with The Feeling, that I never wanted to bear witness too.

Sometime ago I reacquainted myself with the most contested Biblical Book ever by The Christian World itself accept for Ethiopia. Enoch and from Enoch I learned of Jubilees said to be written by Moses.

It was what I read about the complicated matter of the Son's of God saw the daughter's of Man that they were beautiful and came down married the women who gave birth to Giant's and they were Warrior's; Men of Old and Re-known.

Until Enoch I hadn't paid much attention mostly because the Church taught which is True because The Bible Teaches the same lesson Believers are not to marry un-believers Be Not Un-equally Yoked before God in Marriage.

That's not what Son's of God saw the daughter's of Man weren't talking about they were actually referencing the fact God's Angels whom Enoch and Jubilees referred to As the Watchers intermingled with Human Women and polluted Creation.

These Fallen Angel's which numbered 200 contaminating all of Creation were the direct consequence for The Flood and Noah's Ark because of those Wicked Angels behavior God literally had to purge Earth of this Corruption by the Rogue Angel's.

Learning of this factor in The Bible; helps me to understand The Great Flood a lot better. So thank God he saved Human Kind from extinction. Oh right that reminds me Adam in Hebrew means PEOPLE; so Enoch 2 The Book of Secrets of Enoch God declares PEOPLE Destiny was to be An 2nd Angel attached to our Home World Earth.

In Job a man living during Abraham's Time on Earth (so Genesis/Jubilees Time) chapters 1 & 2 deals with God having a Meeting with quote The Sons of God came to a Meeting in Heaven.

These Son's were there to represent other World's and Universe's, of course Satan came too this same Meeting claiming to represent Earth. Originally that's what Adams role was supposed to be that's why God said Adam was an Second Angel but, because of Eden Adam was in The Grave and could no longer represent Earth.

So Satan at the time represented Us up until Christ died on The Cross where He purchased Us with His Blood; Satan Lost his claim that Earth was his (it seems too Me for a Time God allowed Lucifer to believe his own delusion) till the Cross and The Resurrection took place that's why Jesus in The Gospel of Matthew tells his Disciples "That the Prince of This World, has been cast down".

These are my thoughts on Noah's Ark and The Great Flood and why I see it not as an Nursery Rhyme but, as Truth.

There is a concept I learned from National Geographic when they did the documentary on In Search of Adam, 2008 (it's still on ytube), The Bible is a Book of Faith while Science operates on The Idea of an Adam I did think Ideas were on an the same but, science keeps a whole manner of definitions within Science itself.

So why not when Studying Noah and The Flood test out a scenario on The Idea of Obedience when following God's Commands or The Idea of Disobedience The Act of Defying God's Commands see if any what you come back with this Hypothesis Biblically Speaking.

This is where I leave everyone so until next time which ever article that I read and comment on Goodbye!
