"As In The Days Of Noah" Revisited [Update!]

I have noticed an upward trend in my stats lately where people are searching for information regarding the biblical view of same-sex "marriage."  New York state recently approved a bill giving the right for same-sex couples to marry.  Perhaps that is the main reason why those who oppose the deviancy of same sex unions are searching for answers as to why such a decision is bad lawmaking.

If you have followed this blog, you may have already read a post dated back in 2008 entitled The Days of Noah Are Here.

While checking a Bing search, I found two interesting posts on this topic.

1. True Discernment: Jesus, The Days of Noah, and Same Sex Marriage informs us further:


Jesus said in Luke 17:26-30, “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when Son of man is revealed.”

Jesus being a first century Rabbi, like most Jewish teachers, coupled Sodom with the flood generation as a typical image of evil. His intent was to inform his audience that at His second coming the conditions of the world would mirror Noah’s days and the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.

As in the Days of Noah

The Midrash Rabbah Genesis is a specific form of rabbinic literature of ancient Judaism commentaries of the Hebrew Scriptures. It is based on the interpretation of the Torah (Old Testament). It speaks about the subject of same-sex marriage during the days of Noah.

The rabbis wrote in the Midrash Rabbah Genesis that the flood in Noah’s day was primarily triggered when males starting writing marriage deeds with other males, and between men and beasts (bestiality). Based on the account of Midrash Rabbah Genesis, same-sex marriages took place during the days of Noah. There was nothing new under the sun and this is stated by Solomon in Ecclesiastes 1:9. Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah is synonymous with the destruction of the flood generation in Midrash Rabbah Genesis. It states in the Midrash Rabbah Genesis that Lot pleaded all night for mercy for the Sodomites, and that the angels permitted him to plead for them. But once the people said, “… bring them out [the angels] so we may have sex with them,” mercy ran out. The angels told Lot, “for now on you have no right to plead anymore.” Judgment was sent upon Sodom. Flood water was the judgment of God on the people in Noah’s day. Fire and brimstone was the judgment against Sodom and Gomorrah.

The blog author explains that the book of Enoch is not inspired, and thus not part of the canon of Scripture, however the book of Jude contains some quotes from it. Enoch is being used by the author as a good reference resource.


The book of Enoch was written before the birth of Christ and although it is not an inspired book, it is a good resource. Parts of it are quoted in Jude 14-15. 2nd Enoch 34-1, 3-4 states, “God convicts the persons who are idol worshipers and sodomite fornicators, and for this reason he brings down the flood upon them. And all the world will be reduced to confusion by iniquities, wickedness and abominable fornications. That is, friend with friend in anus, every other kind of wicked uncleanness which is almost too disgusting to report, and the worship of the evil one. And that is why I shall bring down the flood onto the earth, and shall destroy everything, and the earth itself will collapse in great darkness.” Second Enoch states that perverse homosexual relationships were the main cause of the flood. Both Midrash Rabbah Genesis and the second book of Enoch state that God frowns on homosexuality in cultic prostitution, and in so-called “loving consensual” homosexual relationships. So don’t believe the liberal Christian theologians, gay-affirming churches and inclusionists. Homosexuality and same-sex marriage are an abomination in God’s eyesight.

I was pleased to see that the author linked to my blogging friend DL Foster's GCM Watch: Why Gay Marriage And Why Now?

John, the blog author concludes:

GCM Watch’s article on June 24, 2008, “Gay Marriage: the ‘days Noah’ return” examined the fact that same-sex marriage caused the flood in Noah’s day in the Babylonian Talmud. The Talmud is the interpretation of the Hebrew scriptures 1000 years before Christ.

The True Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is the prophetic voice to this world. Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! We must be prepared to start looking up for our redemption draweth nigh. We must get the gospel message out and call sinners both in and out of the church to repentance. Acts 3:23 says, “And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which shall not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed among the people.” That Prophet is Jesus.


Jeremiah 6:10 says, “To whom shall I speak and give warning, that they hear? Behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the Lord is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.” If you continue to believe that same-sex marriage is right, if you scoff at the Word of God, if you ridicule the true Bible-believing Christians as ignorant and small minded, let the Sword of the Spirit circumcise your spiritual ear to receive the truth…or believe a lie and be damned.

So you see, dear readers, as Solomon so wisely stated there really is "nothing new under the sun" when it comes to the homosexual agenda!

I know friends and relatives (some Christian, some I'm not sure about) who don't see what the big deal is about this subject. It is as if their minds have been seared with anything but the truth of God! When the God of the Bible tells us that homosexual behavior is sin and that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, who are we to try and change such truths?

But people still try. They use every weapon of human error in order to get their way here on this earth.   But every person who dismisses what I am sharing here must ask themselves this question, "what about how it will affect your eternal destiny?" Isn't that even more important than the here and now? I think so.

People will call Bible-based Christian believers every negative name they can think of. They accuse us of not being "tolerant." But what they truly mean is that they want total acceptance of their aberrant behavior!  Sorry, but no can do! I follow my Lord and Savior and it is HIS morality and ethics and values that carry truth and meaning in this brief life on earth.  What HE THINKS of such matters mean more to me than what those who accept or defend such abominable behavior think of me for speaking out against it.

God has given us every indication to teach us that homosexual behavior is dangerous.  It is sinful, unhealthful, prideful, abominable in God's eyes, and yet mankind STILL wants to push such an agenda upon the world.

And, if you are reading here today and happen to be Jewish, do you follow what these ancient Jewish writings tell you about the sin of homosexual behavior? Or, are you a leftist who follows the whims of men rather than the God of the Old Testament?

What's more, several days ago the UN took it upon themselves as a (so-called) "governing" body to Endorse Gay Rights for the First Time Ever.

We can see how correct Jesus was when he told us that the closer we will get to the end times, the more our world will look (again!) like "in the Days of Noah" and "in the Days of Lot."

The following link has much more!

The World Is Shaking Blogspot: Satan's Very Successful Lie Points to The End of the Age.

Please go to the link to read it all. Here are some devastating paragraphs to consider:

It may sound curious as to why any human would declare PRIDE in the practicing of a deviation from normal; a deviation that actually caused the G-d of creation to send the Flood and to annihilate Sodom and Gomorrah to the point that the region is now the lowest place on Earth.

However, when we research, we find that PRIDE is the root of all sin and the express reason that Lucifer, Satan, was cast out of Heaven.

If Satan, the enemy of mankind, can delude people into actually being proud of sinful rebellion against God and His law; then he is more likely to successfully win their souls to spending eternity in hell with him, when he is cast into the lake of fire.

When there is pride in sin, then repentance is rare. The enemy is well aware of this. That is why he continues to delude and foster "pride" in this deviant, sinful behavior.

This age old plan by the enemy is fast gaining ground.

People who are cheering on (or participating in) the homosexual agenda have been caught up in a lie - one of the most successful lies (unfortunately) to be perpetuated by the enemy of our souls - Satan.

The letters being used to identify all of the sexual deviance's (G = "gay" male; L = lesbian; B = bi-sexual; T = transgender; Q = questioning - or sometimes queer) are all examples of defiant, sinful, unrepentant men and women shaking their fists at the God of the Bible and denying His Will for their sexual lives.

The blog author, Gina Suzanne, concludes:

The rainbow is a symbol which has been adopted to represent homosexuality. After the flood of Noah, the rainbow was given by God as His promise to mankind to never again flood the earth.

Genesis 9:12 And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.

The fact that the rainbow has been chosen to represent the very purpose for which the earth had to be flooded to begin with, exposes Lucifer's hand.

Satan, in his pride, always tries to mock God. The rainbow symbol is mocking the rainbow Covenant made by God to man after the Flood.

Interestingly the homosexual rainbow has six colors and the true rainbow, given by God, has seven.

Notable is the fact that number six, as in the well known 666 of the antichrist, is associated with Satan and the number seven is God's number of completeness and perfection.
Even the very order of God's created nature proves that homosexuality is wrong. He made all living creature to procreate.

In fact, after the flood, God instructed Moses and his sons to "be fruitful and multiply":

Genesis 9:1 Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth. The mere fact that homosexuals cannot reproduce should evidence that this is abnormal and deviant behavior that should elicit shame and not pride.
Since homosexuals cannot reproduce, they recruit. This is what is one of the driving forces of the "gay pride" movement. They try to force homosexuality as "normal" and into the limelight in order to recruit.

Satan hates humans because we are made in God's image. The more humans that deviate into homosexual behavior the less amount of humans there will be as homosexuals, whose behavior is contrary to what God intended for His creation, cannot reproduce.

Genesis 9:6 "...for in the image of God has God made mankind."

Homosexuality thus leads to less human beings and this is why Satan deludes people into thinking it is normal and something to be "proud" of, due to his hatred of mankind.

Also, to the devil's satisfaction, homosexuality means more human company for him in hell.

Those who practice this sin or any other unrepentant sinful lifestyle will descend into the pit and be in torment for eternity.

Satan is the Father of Lies and this is one of his favorites that he is trying to propagate. His ultimate goal is to make this sin accepted as "normal" so as to tempt more humans into practicing it.

Sadly, there are actually churches that call themselves "Christian" which promote homosexuality as both normal and acceptable.

The apostate leaders of these churches convey that since God is a God of love, He loves homosexuals for who they are. God does love homosexuals, just as He loves all sinners.

However, in the same vein, He cannot condone and wink at their unrepentant sin just as He cannot with any type of sin that continues unabated.

These blasphemers fail to convey to their deluded church members the truth: that God is also a God of righteousness judgment, who cannot allow sin in His Holy presence.

Homosexuality is breaking God's law and thus is a sin. Those who practice it are therefore living a lifestyle of continuous sin.

Just like any other unrepentant sinners, if homosexuals die in their sin, they cannot be allowed into Heaven,into God's Holy presence.

Therefore, to the enemy of men's souls, his escalating the promotion of gay PRIDE equates to LESS humans born on earth and MORE humans being cast into hell!

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

Hat Tips to all links.

P.S.  I have several blogging friends who once practiced homosexual behavior but are now released from both the behavior and identity because of salvation of their souls through Jesus Christ!  I have heard many life stories about their transitions out of that lifestyle.  One common theme is the non-acceptance (and often hateful rhetoric) hurled at them by the GLBTQ people and organizations.  Why is that??  If these GLBTQ people pride themselves on "tolerance," why are they often the most intolerant of others desires to leave homosexuality? 

I think we all most likely know the answer to that question...


Interesting Update!

I did a search to see which color of God's rainbow is missing from the homosexual pride rainbow.

Here is the identity of the seven colors of God's rainbow:

Always remember the name ROY G. BIV
Red, Orange, Yellow. Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet.

Or Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain - a reference to the War of the Roses. English history and science both at once.

Read more:
Then, on another page I read this:

Schueller House.comSeven Colors of the Rainbow (Hat Tip)

The color that is missing from the homosexual rainbow flag is the color blue. It only has the indigo color - dark blue. Read what the author has to say about the blue color of the sky:

Blatant sexuality in the world has made it hard for people to remember the possibility of delicate feelings, of personal intimacy that occupies the private world inside and has no need to compete with what happens elsewhere. Modesty is not inadequacy; boundaries are not restrictions. If anyone asks the reason why, then the answer only has to be that there are laws for people's lives just as there are laws for the natural world: “Things are made to fall down, not up, and I'm doing as I was made to do.”

This law corresponds to the blue color in the rainbow. Blue is the purest color and the closest to white, which represents original knowledge and truth. Blue is the color of the sky, a cool, soothing color, and it signifies the fulfillment of kindness and love, their peaceful nature which brings us near to heaven.

If you are reading here today and happen to be Jewish, do you remember that those ancient Jewish writings also tell you that homosexuals are to be put to death? Or are you like the present-day Pharisees (read: Christian Nationalists) who use their whims to execute people for consensual activity, rather than for actual crimes, such as murder and robbery?

Christine, I find it the height of arrogance on your part to remind the Jews of what their god said—the very same god you claim to worship! Even your much-beloved Jesus was one of their own: Christ was not a Christian.
Is it just the word "marriage" that disturbs you, or something else? Are you telling me that all those willfully unmarried clergymen have more rights to marry than a gay couple who wants to, but can't? Well, as of now, there's one less place where they can't.

The 'pride' your link refers to is actually is “hubris”. Are you not 'proud 'of being an American? Are you not 'proud' of being a Christian? Pride is the median, with arrogance on one end, and humility on the other. Don't sling that word around so freely; I've never seen you humble on these pages.

Now I know the recent events in NY have upset you, but take heart; according to the scriptures and you, we are now that much closer to that glorious day you've been longing for. You should be happy.

Sharing what the Scriptures say is not the height of arrogance. It is telling the truth. You, however, do not acknowledge the truth of anything that I have written since you became the nemesis of Talk Wisdom. For you to make claims about me like you do is quite sad. But your darts of hate bounce off because the Lord has given me His armor and has taught me how and when to use it.

Your secular mind sees "gay rights" as something good. God labels it as evil because it comes via the father of lies - Satan himself. When you are against God and His Word, you are an enemy of God. There is no gray area in this, even though some people want to believe in a made up doctrine of purgatory.

Christ never minced words when he spoke of hell. In fact, he mentioned how important it was to avoid going there more than he mentioned heaven.

The Bible is filled with warning, as well as the path to salvation. But one cannot be saved if one denies God's provision for salvation.

You claim to have never seen me as being humble on this blog. So be it. But you, sir, need to take the plank out of your own eye to see the truth about yourself.

And no, I am not "proud" of being a Christian. I am grateful to God for sending His Son Jesus to take my place for punishment for my sins. With confession and repentance at the foot of Christ's Cross at Calvary, God has offered us all His grace and mercy to be reconciled back unto Him.

That is what I desire for all men and women to come to realize, including homosexual offenders. Some never will accept Christ's offer of salvation, but many will. And I plan to continue testifying to the truth here even if you don't like it.

Jhn 3:11 "Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness.

Jhn 5:36 "But I have a greater witness than John's; for the works which the Father has given Me to finish--the very works that I do--bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me.

Jhn 5:37 "And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form.

Jhn 5:38 "But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe.

Jhn 5:39 "You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.

Jhn 7:7 "The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil.

Jhn 15:26 "But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.

Act 10:42 "And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God [to be] Judge of the living and the dead.

Act 20:24 "But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
