DEAD SEA SCROLLS
26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
Next, I would like you to listen to a radio show from Rob Skiba with his host Zen Garcia. This man is not part of Traditional Christianity, neither is Zen Garcia. They both keep the 10 commandments, the Sabbath and the Holy Days. I know they are not called and don't understand the meaning of the Holy Days either, but they study the Bible (and many translations) with a zeal, which I do admire. Among other people's video's, I have also used Rob Skiba's material for FLAT EARTH.
So, the question I'll ask: is it important to believe and understand these books that are not part of the cannonized Bible? And the next question would be: does it make any difference to understand Gods Plan for all of Mankind? Does it make any difference to what was revealed to Herbert Armstrong, Rob Elliott and Mark Little, and other servants on topics like false teachings and doctrines, and on how to overcome carnal nature? To all these questions I can say NO, it doesn't make any difference, but it does give you a much clearer picture on what really happened in Genesis 1 to 6. And on the flat earth theory, it only confirms more what the sun, the moon and the starts are. When I read the Psalms King David wrote, I can only but believe he must had a copy of the Book of Enoch. How he describes in a lot of detail the sun, moon and stars, the deep. But also in the Book of Job, where Job is being silenced by God (the Word) and where He starts to question Job on the creation of the earth, the animals (Job 38, 39, 40 and 41) and how God made the chief of Beasts Behemoth (dinosaur) together with man, and Leviathan (a huge sea monster, definetely NOT A WHALE). In the Book of Enoch these creatures are described as still alive. The Leviathan lives in the Great Deep, while Bohemoth is a massive land animal. Only 5% of all oceans is discovered. That means 95% isn't. When you look on a Flat Earth model, you can see that 30% is land and about 70% is water. There is a lot what we don't know, and what we know is what THEY WANT US TO KNOW. Why? Because they don't want us to know we live in an invironment that was specially created by God also known as The Word, The Logos, Jesus Christ. Jesus says in Luke
"I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
Is it thus important to believe there's a gap theory in Genesis 1 and 2 and that there were maybe two creation accounts instead of only one? Does it make it any difference to our salvation? Again, I have to say NO, IT DOESN'T. I believe humanity started with our forefather and mother Adam and Eve. That is what is important. We are decendants from them. In the Ancient world (before Noah's Flood) men and beast got so corrupt that God had to bring a flood on the earth, and wipe out all humanity and all living creatures save 8 people and those animals on the Ark. When the Great White Throne Judgement Period will begin, all decendants from Adam and Eve, all the way up to the Day of the Lord, when people died because of the plagues, and during the Battle of Armageddon mentioned in Revelation (6,000 years) will rise to physical life to be judged.
