Why God Wrote the Bible

After God’s secretly prophetic 7 day Creation week and Adam & Eve’s spiritual fiasco in the Garden of Eden were history, allow me to clue you in to God’s ensuing intentions for communicating with His spirit children on Earth.  Simply put, God wanted to continue to prophesy “things” to mankind that would confirm and build on those “things” He had already prophesied through His 7 day Creation week.  The only catch … these prophesies would also be secret!

Are you getting this?  Mankind has just fulfilled (accurately during their first 1,000 year period of history on planet Earth) God’s Day 1 Creation story prophesy concerning “light& dark” (good & evil) becoming separated or discernible in their spirits (hearts).  Therefore, God’s Game of Life was now completely set up for His spirit children to be able to play and have a chance to either win or lose!  In other words, God had no need (or sense of urgency) to supply mankind with the “Messianic information” concerning His plan of how they could one day be reunited in perfect spiritual union with Him.  Do you see?  Because mankind already knew EVERYTHING THEY needed to DO to obtain eternal life … just make a willful choice in their Earthly lifetime to follow after God’s way of good (love) and forsake Satan’s way of evil (not love) as outlined by always striving to obey the 10 Love Commandments.

So revealing His “plan of salvation” to deliver mankind’s souls out of their bondage to sin and death (through a sinless Messiah who would one day be able to offer them “forgiveness of sins”) took a back burner.  Rather, God decided next to secretly prophesy to mankind about the time surrounding their final redemption — i.e. the 2nd Coming of the Messiah to Earth, with the subsequent setting up of his glorious, millennial, Sabbath reign to be enjoyed by all those resurrected righteous souls who won in the Game of Life during Earth’s first 6,000 years!  (Are you starting to gain an appreciation for how God loves to prophecy “END things” first?)

But watch this … God would choose to secretly prophesy these things (not by simply speaking words through prophets) but rather by meticulously controlling events and circumstances in certain people’s lives, so that the meaning behind the events and circumstances and specific details of them would do the prophesying for Him!  I know … heavy, huh?  But try and stay with me, for grasping these truths is proof God exists, the Bible is real, and thus Heaven or Hell is in your soul’s future.  In fact, this is precisely WHY God wanted to perform these ancient secret prophesies, record them in a book called the Bible, and then later reveal there meaning through end-time prophets to “last days” mankind!  It was all so YOU (reading this right now, living in a post modern, scientific world, seemingly hell-bent on proving there is no God!) would have undeniable Biblical proof God is real, which will then give you great incentive to make a willful decision in your life to turn from your sins (repent) by following after God’s way of love in order to obtain forgiveness for your sins and eternal life for your soul!  Yes, friend, the Word of God (Bible) was written out of love by God for His spirit children to increase their belief (or faith) in Him

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17)..

Now one more thing before I begin the amazing prophetic revealing … I want you to know that from the very beginning (in other words, from Adam!) God was making sure a written record of EVERY father (or patriarch) in the Earthly lineage of the coming Messiah was kept for mankind’s future knowledge.  These names were all recorded later in God’s Bible.  But here is the deal … it was from THESE patriarchs that God would pick certain ones to work with (manipulating events and details in their life) in order to make His secret prophecies!  And on top of that, even the number of the father in the chronological order to the Messiah was used by God to contain prophetic meaning and significance.

 

Enoch

Alright, here we go: Enoch was the 7th patriarch in the Earthly lineage of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ.  He was born during mankind’s 622nd year, which would have been right around 3350 BC on our current Gregorian calendar.

Here is the special event or circumstance God controlled in his life to secretly prophesy future events to mankind:

“Enoch was TRANSLATED that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that HE PLEASED GOD” (Hebrews 11:5).

Do you see it?  God RAPTURED him!!!  His physical body just disappeared!  It would not be until the time of the Apostles that God would speak clearly through them about a rapture event (or a “catching away” up off of the Earth) of all believers at Christ’s 2nd Coming.  But God had secretly prophesied the event by controlling this event in Enoch’s life.  And God did it with the 7th patriarch to confirm the “rapture event” would occur at the very beginning of mankind’s 7th millennial day on planet Earth (or year 6,000)!  Isn’t God incredibly awesome!!!

Incidentally, did you notice WHY God translated (caught away) Enoch?  It was because while he lived on Earth his thoughts and deeds PLEASED GOD!  Do you know how a person does this?  The Bible has the answer:

“And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him (God), because we KEEP His (10 Love) Commandments, and DO those things that are PLEASING in His sight” (I John 3:22).

Friend, THOSE will be the ONLY type people God will rescue (rapture up) off of Earth in the End during Christ’s 2nd Coming!

 

Noah

Noah was the 10th patriarch in the Earthly lineage of the coming Messiah, and he was born during mankind’s 1,056th year.  In other words, the second 1,000 year period of mankind’s history on Earth was now in progress and it was now time for God to proceed with fulfilling the prophecy He had made during Day 2 of Creation — which you remember had foretold the global flood!

The “global flood event” was to be one massive, detailed, prophetic picture of Jesus Christ’s 2nd Coming, but again ALL A SECRET!  It would contain the “rapture scene” and the “destruction of the surface of planet Earth scene”, along with much more.  And it would also contain a “timing detail” God would precisely control to verify Christ’s 2nd Coming will absolutely, positively occur during mankind’s 6,000th year, giving more credence to the fact that His 7 Day Creation story truly was/is His master time plan for mankind’s time on planet Earth in this present age.

So here we go … Noah’s name in ancient Hebrew meant “rest, comfort”!  Listen to God prophesying through Noah’s father, Lamech, about Noah:

“And he (Lamech) called his name Noah, saying, this same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord hath cursed” (Genesis 5:29).

Friend, THIS is prophecy about the Messiah!  It is Jesus Christ and his 2nd Coming that will usher in the RESTFUL, millennial reign on Earth where God will regenerate planet Earth back to its original, peaceful condition before Adam & Eve sinned and the ground was cursed.  In other words, here (through the very name God had Lamech name his son) God was secretly confirming Noah will be a prophetic picture of Jesus Christ!

 

The Ark

Well, you know the story … the world was full of wicked people, so God decided to destroy them ALL, along with the surface of planet Earth (listen to every prophetic word God speaks to Noah and then think about the soon coming fulfillment of them through the Antichrist’s brief reign on Earth):

“And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the Earth, and that EVERY imagination of the thoughts of his heart (spirit) was only evil continually … And God said unto Noah, The END of ALL flesh is come before me; for the Earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I WILL DESTROY THEM WITH THE EARTH” (Genesis 6:13).

God tells Noah to build an ark to save his house (family) from the coming destruction.  Here is what the ark prophetically represents: It is the KINGDOM OF GOD!  A.R.K = A Righteous Kingdom.

God tells Noah to build it with 3 levels, windows, rooms, and 1 door!  Friend, THESE are ALL Biblical characteristics of God’s Heavenly Kingdom that Jesus Christ is currently BUILDING for HIS HOUSE of righteous souls:

“I knew a man in Christ…such an one caught up to the THIRD heaven” (II Corinthians 12:2).

“… and the windows of heaven were opened” (Genesis 7:11).

“In my Father’s house (Kingdom of God) are many mansions (rooms): if it were not so, I would have told you.  I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME AGAIN, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:2-3).

“I (Jesus Christ) am the door: by me if any man enter in, HE SHALL BE SAVED” (John 10:9).

Do you see it?  God found the perfect way to represent His Kingdom (or the place all the resurrected righteous will enter) in this secret prophetic story concerning Christ’s 2nd Coming by having Noah build an ark to SAVE his HOUSE!

 

God Shuts the Door

Noah completed the building of the ark (Jesus will soon complete the building of rooms in his Kingdom) and God tells Noah’s HOUSE (family) to enter it:

“And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and ALL thy HOUSE into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation” (Genesis 7:1).

Listen to God describe (later in the Bible) who all the spirit children (living on Earth during its first 6,000 years) that willingly choose to live righteously represent:

“But Christ as a son over HIS OWN HOUSE: WHOSE HOUSE WE ARE, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end” (Hebrews 3:6).

Do you see it?  Anyone who willingly chooses to “repent of their sins” literally becomes a spiritual son or daughter of Jesus Christ, meaning they are part of HIS HOUSE (or his family) of people, just like Noah’s house in the prophetic story!

So just Noah’s house of 8 — him, his wife, his 3 sons, and their wives or his daughters in law — enter the ark, and GOD SHUTS THE DOOR!  Listen:

“…and the LORD shut him (them) in” (Genesis 7:16).

Isn’t that a weird choice of words for this story back then, to be displayed for all to read in God’s Holy Bible for thousands of years?  Well, not at all once you understand what the story is all about!!!  It is GOD who will SHUT THE DOOR to the ark (Kingdom of God) in the End, and NO ONE after that point will enter!  Listen to Jesus tell a parable authenticating this truth:

“When once the MASTER of the HOUSE is risen up, and hath SHUT THE DOOR, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us: and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence (went to church), and thou hast taught in our streets.  But he shall say, I tell you, I KNOW YOU NOT whence ye are; DEPART FROM ME, ALL YE WORKERS OF INIQUITY (SIN).  There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the Kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out” (Luke 13:25-28).

I cannot say it any clearer, my friend … the only reason a person will not be in the ark (Kingdom of God) is because while they had a chance on Earth to repent of sin, THEY WOULD NOT!  Church attendance won’t matter!  Millions who go to church every week still live in willful wicked sins, and God does not know them.  So don’t fool yourselves, only “true repentance (willful cessation of sin)” will prompt God to “forgive your sins” through Christ’s redemptive work at the cross of Calvary, allowing you entrance into His glorious, heavenly Kingdom.

In other words, the door that enters the ark exists IN YOUR HEART! It is in your spirit! To enter the ark and become a spiritual son or daughter of Jesus Christ’s house all you have to DO is turn from your sins.

 

The Ark Goes Up

With Noah’s house safe inside the ark, the day of reckoning arrived.  God broke open the deep and destructively flooded the entire surface of planet Earth, physically killing (or cutting short the time) all His wicked spirit children’s souls had to play in the Game of Life on planet Earth:

“… the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up … and the waters increased, and BARE UP the ark, and it was LIFT UP ABOVE THE EARTH … and ALL flesh died that moved upon the Earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the Earth, AND EVERY MAN: All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died … and NOAH ONLY REMAINED ALIVE, AND THEY THAT WERE WITH HIM IN THE ARK” (Genesis 7:7-23).

Do you see it?  Do you see the secret prophetic picture of Jesus Christ’s 2nd Coming?  Do you see the rapture (lifting up off the Earth) of the believers (house of Christ) on the SAME DAY that the Earth and all its godless inhabitants are simultaneously being destroyed?  I sure hope so!  Because this prophetic story of Noah is less than 20 years away from being fulfilled on this planet!!!

 

The Prophetic “Timing Detail”

And now for the prophetic “timing detail” God controlled in the story to absolutely prove Jesus Christ’s 2nd Coming will occur during mankind’s 6,000th year:

“And Noah was SIX HUNDRED years old when the flood of waters was upon the Earth” (Genesis 7:6).

Oh, friend, do you see it?  Noah’s ark was ready to receive his house and be lifted up off Earth when he was 600 years old, because Jesus Christ’s Kingdom will be ready to receive his house of resurrected righteous souls and be lifted up off Earth when it is precisely 6,000 years old!!!  Noah’s whole story was/is a prophecy!  And Jesus Christ is about to fulfill EVERY prophetic detail of it.

This is why Jesus said:

“But as the DAYS (all 600 years) of Noah were, SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN (JESUS CHRIST) BE.  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them ALL away; SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE” (Matthew 24:37-39).

Do you see?  Even Jesus Christ himself authenticated the story of Noah was actually one massive, prophetic picture of his 2nd Coming!  And now (as Paul Harvey would say) you know the REST — pun intended! — of the story.
