YOU MUST BE READY
The word “flood” is used about 28 times in the Bible. It is used eleven times in the Book of Genesis and refers to God’s Judgment on the world for sin by the Great Flood.
It is used either in general terms or symbolically, twice in Job, five times in Psalms, once in Proverbs, Isaiah and Nahum, once in Luke.
It is used in reference to God’s Judgments, once in Daniel, twice in Matthew, once in Luke once in 2 Peter and once in Revelation. All of these references are related to the End of Days in some way, except for 2 Peter.
But I want to focus on the mention of a flood in conjunction with God’s Judgment and the “End of Days” as mentioned, in Daniel 9, Matthew 24 and Revelation 12.
These references link Past events of God’s Judgments with the Present Day and the Present Day with future Judgments.
Why does this matter? Jesus tells us it is important that we know and stay ready for what is coming and may already be upon us:
The FLOOD is a prophetic mystery, mentioned 4 times in scriptures. Here are the 4 sections of Scripture and the “Mystery of The Flood” revealed!
I. Genesis 6:5 – Wickedness, Evil, Regret, Judgment
Genesis 6:5.-7 , “Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. The LORD said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.
Genesis 6:17 , “Behold, I, even I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is on the earth shall perish.

II. Daniel 9:24 – The Flood, Times of Distress
“Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.
Verse 25. “So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress.
Verse 26. “Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.
Verse 27. “And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate.”

Verse 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.
Verse 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.

All four sections of scriptures are speaking of the same thing. The key word “FLOOD”
When God repeats Himself it usually means He is communicating something very important to His people. Please study these messages as your instruction to GET READY & STAY READY and to be prepared for that day!
Hebrews 1:1 “God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, (v2) in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.
God has spoken this message at least four times and in at least four different ways.
This, therefore, is how we are to prepare and to conduct ourselves until “The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore, comfort one another with these words.”
