What does the Bible tell us about Noah? A quick look into Hebrews 11 gives us a short description:
By faith Noah, when warned of things not yet seen, in holy fear built an Ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith. (Hebrews 11:7)
If we look back to Genesis 6-9, we read of all that God commanded Noah to do and the covenant He made with him after the flood had cleared away. While Noah was building, he preached to the people around him that God was angry and that He was about to judge the world with a flood. They would have jeered at him. Nobody believed Noah’s warnings and so, perished when the floods came. Only 8 people were saved out of all who were alive in the world at that time. By faith, I believe that the whole world was flooded just as the Bible says: Genesis 7:17-24.
There’s a teaching going around that spearheads from the gospels. Christ told His followers of the end times when the days would be likened to Noah’s day in that people would completely ignore the signs calling out to them of the Lord’s return, and of His wrath to fall upon the earth before He comes back. In Matthew 24:37-39, we read these words: As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 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; 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.
You notice that this is all the Lord reports about this time. But now, there’s an industry surrounding a strange teaching that tries to make us believe in something called “The return of the Nephilim”! There are books about it, films, sermons – you name it. But did Jesus ever mention anything about these things? Absolutely nothing came from His mouth about it. Nothing is recorded in Christ’s sermon concerning this strange teaching whatsoever, and yet, people are buying and selling stories in whatever manner they can. The Box Office is bursting at the seams with people wanting to see the various films on this subject; Authors have got people caught up in their teachings on the subject and the books are selling and making million-dollar profits, sermons are being spoken from pulpits, catching people up in their unholy teachings and it’s all become very much of a religion all of its own.
Here’s the Scripture where people try to get their teachings from: Genesis 6:1-4 talks about the “sons of God” who came down to the daughters of men, had sex with them and produced giants on the earth. And yes, the Bible calls these beings Nephilim! But NOWHERE in Christ’s text does it teach that these beings are coming back. Jesus was ONLY EVER talking about the state of Mankind in general who will be without Christ, right up until He returns. Here’s what will mark men out in the days when the Lord pours out His holy wrath upon this earth: mankind, in general will only ever find it in his heart to curse and hate the God of heaven, because of all the plagues being poured out upon the earth. We must NEVER take Scriptures out of context. We must NEVER add to what Christ said and we must NEVER add to His warnings. Jesus warned about mankind’s failure to grasp the signs of His return.
That is all.
