We focus on Bible prophecy each week, calling it a “Prophecy Update.”
We are considered futurists. We interpret the unfulfilled prophetic portions of the Book of the Revelation and the Book of Daniel, and all other unfulfilled prophecies, as future events in a literal, physical, apocalyptic, and global context.
In His prophetic sermon we call the Olivet Discourse, Jesus said the End Times would be like the days of Noah.
Jesus specifically referenced the strange marriages in the days of Noah.
In Genesis chapter six we’re told that certain fallen angels were marrying human women.
Their offspring were called Nephilim. They were a race of giants.
The Old Testament talks about giants in many places. For example ten of the Israelite spies reported there were giants in the Promised Land. The giants were so big that they made the spies seem like grasshoppers in comparison. Their fear of these Nephilim is why they refused to enter the land God was giving them.
These giants were not just tall men. At least one is described as being 15 feet tall.
This isn’t giantism. Humans who suffer from giantism are slow, clumsy, uncoordinated, and die relatively young. The giants in the Bible were fierce, agile warriors.
I have to add something even grosser. Extra-biblical literature reports that these fallen angels also mated with animals. It was a terrible time.
It was mainly on account of the corruption of human DNA that God sent the global flood. He spared Noah & company because they were “righteous in their generations.” They had uncorrupted human DNA and would restore the human race.
We should therefore expect tampering with human DNA to become more popular and weirder.
I read an article titled, First part-human, part-monkey embryo created by scientists sparks outcry.
Researchers have grown human stem cells in monkey embryos to try and better understand how the cells communicate.
Some people are totally against this kind of experimentation and think it could lead the way to “human-nonhuman” creatures.
The controversial embryos were made at the Salk Institute in California. They’re scientifically known as monkey-human chimeras.
Professor Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte led the research. He also worked on the first human-pig hybrid in 2017.
According to the BBC, Prof Julian Savulescu, director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, said the experiment “opens Pandora’s box to human-nonhuman chimeras.”
He said: “These embryos were destroyed at 20 days of development but it is only a matter of time before human-nonhuman chimeras are successfully developed.”
It is beyond being weird and unethical. It’s Noahic.
We believe the resurrection and rapture of the church are imminent. It could happen any moment; nothing needs to happen before it. It will happen before the Great Tribulation.
Jesus will return in the clouds.
He will raise the dead in Christ.
He will transform the bodies of living believers to glorified, resurrection bodies.
We will all join Him in Heaven while the earth endures one final seven-year campaign of severe evangelism.
Are you ready for the rapture? If not, Get ready; Stay ready; Keep looking up.
Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
