Transformation and The Coming Day of Noah

Everywhere I look today, I see the word "transformation." Transformation is a major theme this year. There's even a movie coming out this year called "Transformers 2: Revenge of the FALLEN." Revenge of the what? Revenge of the "fallen." This is so in our face, I could'nt make this stuff up. The key words in there are: transform, revenge, fallen. What do you think they are trying to say?

I read yesterday about a major new European effort to crack down on the internet freedom, as well as ensure that everything, and I mean everything can be tracked. From your shoelace, to your body, they want to track it all. They cite various reasons for this, but you can guess what the real reason is. There are many levels that transformation is taking place today. The most potent one is the transformation of people's minds. The world is being "transformed" into a satanic society before our eyes. People's minds are being conditioned. There are also bio-physical changes taking place with the bodies of mankind. Here satan really treads on thin ice, and least as far as the church is concerned. We, the true believers are the literal temples of the Holy Spirit. When Satan starts defacing, destroying the temples, well...lets just say that does'nt please our master. He lives in us.

The reading I've done so far on this shows me that the plan is to change mankind bio-physically, and spiritually so men can directly interact with demons. That's the gist of it. Remember in Luke we are told that things are coming "on the world" that will cause mens hearts to fail them for fear? All the nanotechnology, bioweapons programs etc all play a part in whats coming, and it appears to be coming soon.

This leads me to, the coming day of Noah. We have a day coming, that will be exactly like it was for Noah. Think about that. The Lord specifically tells us that a day is coming..for us..that will be exactly like the days of Noah and Lot-Luke 17, Matt 24. What happened in the days of Noah?

Genesis 7:1 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 7:4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth. Genesis 7:5 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.

Verse 7:1 says what? Come into the ark. Verse 7:4 says in 7 more days I will bring the rain. People like to argue "hey, but it did'nt rain for 7 more days!" Who cares? What happened first? Noah was told to come into the ark, FIRST. Once in the ark, who cares when it rained?

What do we know about Noah's experience? 1. He did what the Lord commanded, he was obedient 2. He was physically separated/segragated from the wrath and judgement. You need to read the specific words of how he was separated: Gen 7:And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.

So, we enter the ark BEFORE the "7 days" and before the "40 days and nights of rain" and we are lifted up above the earth. Arguing about the 7 and 40 days is irrelevant, the relevant fact to our escape is that Noah entered first.BEFORE. Everything has to fit, we can't force pieces into the puzzle right? Luke 21:36 tells us there is an escape from all that's coming. Did Noah escape all? Yes, he did. Did Lot escape all? Yes, he did. Will we (if counted worthy) escape all? Yes, we will. I am absolutely 100% positive that we will look back on history, after the Lord does what he does and say "Yep, exactly, precisely like it happened to Noah and Lot. Yep, we did "escape all" exactly as the Lord said it would happen. The details are in the Lord's hands.

To really understand how this is going to work, transport your mind back in time, into Noah's or Lot's body, and take with you your understanding of every detail of how their experience worked out for them. That's what is coming. We are going to have a "Noah and Lot experience." It will be exactly like that. The Lord said it, not me. Many are those who would explain new details into the Noah and Lot experience. Read both stories, I see nothing, absolutely nothing about them being persecuted, executed, chased/hunted down by wicked men, treading water, putting out fires on their clothes from brimstone saying "whoa, that was close!" Nada, not even remotely close. Before a single act of judgement even starts, the righteous have to be removed, that's a fact. Who said that? Look below. Also, guess what word I see written five times down there? You guessed it: escape.

And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city. 16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city. 17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed. 18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my LORD: 19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast showed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die: 20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live. 21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken. 22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

I cannot do anything till thou be come thither? Yea, no destruction, not a lick of it till Lot was out. And escape, escape, escape, escape, escape, gosh where have we read that before?

Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

The indisputable facts of the Noah and Lot stories were, Noah went into the ark first, verse 7:1 then he waited 7 days (verse 7:4) and 40 days for men to be judged. Lot went out of Sodom before a single fiery ember was allowed to fall.

Here's something else thats very important to realize, what was Noah and Lot's situation before Noah entered the ark, and before Lot left Sodom? Do we read anything about them suffering the judgements of sword, famine, death and hell, plague, beasts of the earth hunting them down? Well, that's what's coming for this world. If Noah and Lot did'nt face those things, neither will we. The book of ezekiel clearly states that the sword and famine are signature judgements by the Lord our God. Those exact same judgements are what open the tribulation period in Seals 1-5.

The book of Matthew tells us that the world was eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage right up to the day Noah entered the ark. So you should expect to eat and drink, marry and give in marriage right up to the day we enter the ark. If the Holy Spirit wanted Matthew to tell us, "be ready to dodge the sword, famine, beasts, the anti-christ, death and hell up till the day you enter the ark," he could have, but he did'nt.

The Lord's word will be exalted. It will be vindicated. So we can give ourselves a 100% guarantee that right up to the day we enter our "ark," this is what we will see:

they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

The Lord told Noah "come in here," our Lord Jesus will tell us "come up here." Noah entered the ark through an open door, then the Lord close the door behind Noah. We will enter heaven through an open door (Rev 4) and the Lord will close it behind us: Matt 25: 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Our Noah/Lot, experience is ahead of us and approaching quickly. If you want to understand the experience, put yourselves in Noah's and Lot's shoes. With your mind and spirit, enter their experience and understand it the way it happened to them, because that's what's coming, exactly like that. Physical removal from the physical location of judgement and wrath is what happened. This time, the wrath and judgement will be world-wide, so where do you think we go? A door open in heaven give you a clue?

Many will be left behind, for various reasons. Already their hearts tell them they will be in the tribulation. There's but very little time to change that. Grace and peace
