The five months period or the
hundred fifty days, from the time the flood started until the water receded
off the face of the earth is, the number of grace that God gave all inside
the ark rest from the storm. (30 days x 5 Months = 150 days).
(Genesis 7:17-24) After the devastation of Noahís flood, God made an
everlasting covenant with him and, He swore to never again flood the earth
with water to destroy it.
Isaiah 54:9-For this is as
the waters of Noah unto Me: for as I
sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth.
Genesis 9:11-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.
God promised that the waters
of Noah shall never again cover the earth to destroy it, then how can we
account for this second flood in the Scripture, and what does it consist of
if itís not water?
Revelation 12:15-And the
serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he
might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
The flood is cast from the
serpentís mouth because, unlike Noahís flood which was a physical saturation
of water, Satanís flood will be a spiritual saturation of lies that is
spewed from his mouth. Also observe the switch in the purpose of
each entity, as we go from the Satan the accuser casting the flood from his
month, to the dragon as the false Messiah casting the flood from his month.
The dragon represents the second beast, he looked like the Lamb of God, but
he spoke as the dragon, because he was the dragon. (Revelation 13:11 &
Revelation 12:16-And the
earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth,
and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast
out of his mouth.
Here the scripture tell us
that the earth will open her mouth and swallow up the flood that Satan is
sure to bring against the Elect. God used this method of destruction once
before when the earth opened her mouth and swallowed the men of Korah
(Numbers 16). The prophet Daniel revealed this second flood to us in his
prophecies long before the Apostle John received his revelation of this same
Daniel 9:24-Seventy weeks
are determined upon thy People and upon thy holy city, to finish the
transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for
iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the
vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
The seventy weeks in
this prophecy, is actually seventy sevens of years.
7 x 70 weeks = 490 years
