Another Look At The Events Surrounding The Flood



Recently, certain comments were brought to my attention
regarding some beliefs held by those who adhere to the
doctrines of the Urantia Book. The comments which were
shared with me have to do with the events surrounding Noah's
Flood. I have discussed this topic in previous articles such
'Noah's Ark And The Worldwide Flood' and 'Nephilim: The
Giants Of Genesis' as well as in a few others. You may wish
to read those to obtain a fuller understanding of my
comments expressed in this current paper. In this article I
will be quoting from the comments I received and then
providing my own remarks based on what has been said. I hope
that this brief study will assist you in understanding The
Truth surrounding Noah's Flood so that you can combat
Satan's lies, the purpose of which is only to discredit God
and call Him a liar. Remember, if there is any lie involved,
it certainly is not on the part of God, but originates from
the father of lies himself and from the sin and vanity of
our own hearts:

"God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of
man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not
do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?"
(Numbers 23:19)

"In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie,
promised before the world began;" (Titus 1:2).

"God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as
it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy
sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged."
(Romans 3:4)

Speaking of Satan's deceitfulness, Jesus tells us in the
Gospel of John:

"...He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in
the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he
speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar,
and the father of it." (John 8:44b)

Let us begin now with this person's first comment:

"Besides, the reality of a global flood would entail the
loss of most of the plant life, not only the animals. It
would also mean the erosion of the world's deserts and
destruction of most habitats."

----- End Of Quote -----

This is indeed true. The world was literally turned upside
down topographically-speaking when the Lord destroyed the
wicked men of the past by The Flood:

"Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden?
Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was
overflown with a flood:" (Job 22:15-16)

As pointed out in the previously-mentioned articles, all
land-based air-breathing life was destroyed:

"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 every living substance was destroyed which
was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and
the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they
were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive,
and they that were with him in the ark." (Genesis 7:21-23)

Whether or not the phrase 'every living substance was
destroyed' includes all plant substance is a matter of
conjecture. Personally, I am inclined to believe that 'all'
means exactly what it implies. I will amplify on these
verses a bit further on in this article. One thing we do
know is that the Lord caused the worldwide ocean to overflow
past its natural boundaries. The Grand Canyon is a prime
example of the creative and Earth-carving power of the
global drainage which occurred following The Flood of Noah's
day. In fact, the magnificent and awe-inspiring granite
cliffs of Yosemite National Park also stand in testimony of
the time when God broke up the very foundation of the Earth
as if with a Divine Sledge Hammer:

"In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second
month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were
all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the
windows of heaven were opened." (Genesis 7:11)

And after the forty days were ended, we read:

"The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven
were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;"
(Genesis 8:2)

Concerning the granite foundation, (or cornerstone), of the
Earth, and the oceans being placed within their borders, we
read in the book of Job:

"He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and
night come to an end." (Job 26:10)

"Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the
measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the
line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof
fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the
morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted
for joy? Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake
forth, as if it had issued out of the womb? When I made the
cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a
swaddlingband for it, And brake up for it my decreed place,
and set bars and doors, And said, Hitherto shalt thou come,
but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?"
(Job 38:4-11)

In the book of Isaiah, we also have the Lord saying through
his prophet:

"Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I
am the first, I also am the last. Mine hand also hath laid
the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned
the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together."
(Isaiah 48:12-13)

'They stand up together' is a very interesting choice of
words. Could this be a reference to the granite baserock
being uplifted to form the worldwide mountain chains? Could
it also be a reference to volcanoes being raised up spewing
out lava? After all, granite is an igneous rock. And
finally, the Lord also spoke through the prophet Zechariah
saying:

"The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the
LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the
foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man
within him." (Zechariah 12:1)

Here we also see a reference to how man is a multi-component
being as I have pointed out in other articles. It is the
union of soul (physical body) and Spirit which form the
whole man.

So then, if the Almighty God through Jesus Christ created
all of these magnificent wonders of the natural world, is it
a great matter for Him to destroy and break them up in a
global catastrophe as is described in the book of Genesis?
Certainly not.

This same person then went on to say:

"Practically speaking, there is also the impossibility of
creating an ark for so many various types of animals and
returning them to the environments in which they were
specialized. Think of North American or Australian wildlife;
how would Noah collect and then subsequentially release
these?"

----- End Of Quote -----

The above comment reflects a total lack of faith in and
understanding of the Word of God. It is a prime example of
trying to understand things with the carnal mind instead of
seeing them with the eyes of the Spirit. This person
severely underestimates the power of God:

"For with God nothing shall be impossible." (Luke 1:37)

First of all, Noah did NOT collect the animals; the Lord
BROUGHT them to him just as He had likewise brought all
living creatures to Adam several chapters before when he
first named them:

"And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of
the field, and every fowl of the air; and BROUGHT THEM unto
Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam
called every living creature, that was the name thereof."
(Genesis 2:19)

"There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male
and the female, as God had commanded Noah." (Genesis 7:9)

"And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all
flesh, wherein is the breath of life." (Genesis 7:15)

Notice how it says that 'they went in unto Noah.' There was
no forceful collecting here, chasing after the wildlife.
They willingly came to him. As explained in other articles,
it was not until AFTER The Flood when it became permissible
to eat meat that the Lord put the fear of man into the
animals:

"And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon
every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air,
upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes
of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. Every moving
thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green
herb have I given you all things." (Genesis 9:2-3)

One other point worth mentioning concerning the above
statement is that this person is under the assumption that
the world was already divided into its various climates and
continents at the time of The Flood. There are those who
believe that when the Lord made the dry land to appear in
Genesis chapter one, that it was one solid mass surrounded
by a worldwide ocean. They claim that it was not until about
one hundred and ten years AFTER The Flood, in the days of
Noah's descendant Peleg, that the Lord began to slowly
divide the Earth into its current continents:

"And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was
Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his
brother's name was Joktan." (Genesis 10:25)

This physical division of the Earth is said to have begun
after the Lord had separated the inhabitants of the Ancient
World into various nations of people following Nimrod and
the Tower of Babel; what some believe was the root of the
later Babylonian empire, and in fact the spiritual beginning
of Babylon the Great Whore of Revelation. You can read all
about this in Genesis chapters ten and eleven. It is
believed by some that this division of the Old World was
accomplished through continental drift beginning with small
cracks, then larger fissures, and eventually rift valleys
which slowly filled with water as the Earth continued to
slowly divide over the next six thousand some years, until
today the continents are divided by great oceans. It was a
slow steady process which was not cataclysmic in nature. As
these land masses slowly separated, whatever was living on
them at the time eventually became trapped on them.

Some go as far as to theorize that the idea of the lost
continent of Atlantis was nothing more than the American
continents slowly falling below the horizon as they
continued to drift westward away from the Eurasian and
African land masses. Whether this is true or not, I cannot
say; but if it did occur this way, it must have taken
hundreds if not thousands of years for humans to make this
observation. Regardless, I do not believe that Atlantis was
some great super-advanced society which sunk under the ocean
due to the mis-use of nuclear power as some New Agers like
to suggest. They go as far as to state that ancient
civilizations such as the Atlanteans, Indians and others
possessed flying craft powered by mercury and other
substances. These are vain imaginations of sinful men.

It is also possible that it was at the time of The Flood
that the Earth was thrown off-balance due to the collective
action of the great power behind the tidal waves which were
needed to cover the dry land, the water being displaced from
the fountains of the deep, and the water raining down from
above. Between this awesome power, the physical displacement
of the elements, and the added weight of millions of gallons
of water pouring down from above, perhaps the entire sphere
was shifted. It may be that this shift did in fact result in
our current axis which is believed to be responsible for the
various climates all around the world. This sudden tilt
would explain how the mastadons were washed up to Siberia
and immediately frozen. In thinking about this, the Lord
just gave me another amazing revelation. The Lord is so
faithful to reveal things when our minds are on Him!
Consider these verses from the book of Genesis:

"And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all
the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind
to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged; The
fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were
stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained; And the
waters returned from off the earth continually: and after
the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were
abated." (Genesis 8:1-3)

Here we have a picture of the Lord sending a wind to asswage
or calm the waters. How could this wind calm the waters?
Doesn't the wind make the water even more choppy? Doesn't
the wind create waves? Well this was a special wind which
passed over the entire Earth. And what did it do? I remember
reading the account of one person some time ago who believed
that the Lord used this wind to totally remove this extra
water from off of the face of the Earth and out into deep
space. I believe the theory was that this is what now
constitutes comets. I may be a bit mistaken on this.
Regardless, I don't buy that theory. I believe that what the
Lord just showed me makes a lot more sense. If you believe
as I do that the orignal Earth was a tropical paradise, then
it must have been located near the equator. This extra water
had to go somewhere in order for the dry land to appear
again, right? Well, what just came to me is that this wind
pushed the waters off and away from the land, and towards
both the north and south poles. This was a slow steady
process. As explained in my previous article on The Flood,
most people who are not familiar with the Bible are under
the false impression that The Great Deluge only lasted forty
days and nights, and that was the end of it. Here are the
facts of the matter: First of all, it was not Noah who
sealed the door of the Ark, it was the Lord Who personally
locked them up tight. As explained in other articles, the
Lord, (meaning Jesus) roamed among His creations in the
early days of the world:

"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...And they that went in, went in male and
female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD
shut him in." (Genesis 7:1, 16)

The Lord was there folks! He beckoned Noah and his family
and the animals to come into the Ark! How could He tell them
'Come thou and all thy house into the ark' unless He was
literally standing there inside the Ark beckoning with His
hand? I can just picture it! WOW! Once they were all safely
inside, He sealed up the door for them! We are then told
that it wasn't until seven days later that the water
arrived. In fact, we are given the exact year, month and
day:

"And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of
the flood were upon the earth. In the six hundredth year of
Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the
month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep
broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened."
(Genesis 7:10-11)

A little later on we are also told the exact year, month and
day when the ground was completely dry and Noah removed the
covering of the Ark:

"And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in
the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were
dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering
of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground
was dry." (Genesis 8:13)

As simple math will reveal to you, just over a year had
passed from the time Noah and his family entered into the
Ark. It wasn't just a forty day period as many folks
believe. If you want to see a further breakdown of this
period, please refer to my other article on this same topic.
Now, here is the point I am driving at: It took just over a
year for this whole thing to be over with. During part of
that time, the Lord was using this great wind He had created
to slowly push the extra water towards both the north and
the south poles where it froze! That is exactly what
happened to it! It is a scientific fact that both poles are
covered in ice and snow miles thick. I don't remember the
exact figure right off hand, but that is what I believe the
Lord did with all of that extra water! It had to go
somewhere, right? If it was just a matter of the ocean
overflowing its shores, it could have easily returned to its
place. But, we also had the fountains of the deep opening
up, (which I understand to mean underground streams, lakes
and rivers), and rain coming down from above for forty days
straight. That is what it took to cover the highest
mountains with some twenty-five feet of water:

"And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and
all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were
covered. Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and
the mountains were covered." (Genesis 7:19-20)

Aside from these facts, the Great Flood would also serve to
explain the vast oil reserves found in certain parts of the
Earth where thousands, if not millions, of dead bodies and
decaying vegetable matter accumulated in great quantities
due to the global drainage to low-lying areas. The fact that
the world's largest oil reserves are found in the Middle
East is a confirmation that this area was the cradle of all
life on Earth. It was here were life began, where it was
destroyed, and where it began anew following The Flood.

I would again like to remind the reader that some of this
information is speculation on my part as well as that of
others. None of it can be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.
The only thing we can be sure of is that the Global Flood
did occur exactly as it is described by Moses in the book of
Genesis. Exactly when the division of the Earth occurred,
none of us can really say with any degree of certainty. All
we can do is accept by faith what we have been given in
Genesis and leave it at that. In the Lord's time, and if He
so wills, He will reveal all things to us.

Having come to his own conclusions based on human logic and
reasoning, the person whose comments I am quoting then went
on to say:

"The only real answer is to go with the UB and localize the
flood and, thus, Noah's role in salvaging animal life. Even
in this day and age, it would be nearly impossible to
undergo such a global task as that of rescuing all animal
life, safely maintaining it for 40 days and nights, and then
releasing each species into their respective homes."

----- End of Quote -----

What a tragedy! Because his carnal mind has a difficult time
grasping the Genesis Flood as being global in nature, he
takes the easy way out and embraces the lies of the Urantia
Book which seems more logical to him! You see, this again
exposes the true subtle nature and evil purpose of that
damnable book of Satan, the Urantia Book, the Unbelief Book!
Just look at what it has done to this person's faith! In
this person's eyes, the account of The Flood in the Bible
has been discredited. It has been made into a lie by the
Urantia Book, the Unbelief Book! This person obviously felt
he had to make a choice between believing in the account of
The Flood in Genesis, and believing in the explanation given
in the Unbelief Book. Because the Unbelief Book appeals more
to his human logic and understanding, his carnal way of
thinking, he has erroneously chosen it as a source of Truth
above the Bible! Believe me, I can see exactly why the
Unbelief Book appeals to so many. It is written in a style
very different from the Bible. Its form of speech is more
elevated and geared towards the modern scientific mind. It
is more technical in nature. As I have mentioned in other
articles dealing with it, the Unbelief Book speaks in a
language which is difficult for the common man to even
understand. It is not the common simple language that Jesus
and His Disciples spoke. I know because I have read parts of
it. I am not the least bit surprised that it appeals to New
Agers and Technocrats. It was written for them, and they are
falling for its deceit head over heels.

Contrary to the lies swallowed by this person, the Bible
makes it very clear that this was a GLOBAL flood and not
just some localized event. If there was just one land mass
at the time, this would have made it even easier for the
Lord to wash the surrounding worldwide ocean over top of it
as well as to break up underground streams and rivers. Let's
take a look at those verses in Genesis chapter seven again:

"And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and
all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were
covered. Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and
the mountains were covered." (Genesis 7:19-20)

Notice it says ALL the high hills under the WHOLE heaven.
ALL of the mountains were covered everywhere. Again, if
there was only one land mass, and even if there wasn't, this
still would have been a small task for the Lord to
accomplish. Those who deny this possibility because of their
carnal understanding are calling both the Bible and God a
liar! Remember the very first verses I quoted in this
article. It is man who lies, not God; and it is all due to
his own pride and vanity. Carnal man refuses to accept that
he doesn't know as much as God. He wants to be just like
God, just as Satan longed for the same thing. The Lord makes
it very clear in His Word that there are certain things we
are not meant to understand, at least not for now:

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your
ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher
than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my
thoughts than your thoughts." (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Wicked man refuses to accept this. He wants to understand
everything now. To admit that he doesn't shows that he is
less than God. Evil man doesn't like this, so in his attempt
to raise himself above God, or to at least make himself
equal to God, he discards The Truth of God and replaces it
with lies and theories of his own fabrication which he can
understand. This is what the theory of EVILution is all
about. It is man's vain attempt to explain the
unexplainable. His carnal mind can't grasp Genesis, so he
invents something which does fit into his limited human
understanding; and it is just one elaborate Big Lie!

This is the same mentality that the Urantia Book, the
Unbelief Book follows, such as in this case of the account
of Noah's Flood. To those who are darkened in understanding
due to rebellion in their hearts, Genesis does not seem
logical. As this person claims, the whole account seems
impossible. This person asks, 'How could it be a global
flood? How could Noah collect all of those animals? How
could Noah get all of the animals back into their right
climatic environments after The Flood? How could he even
possibly collect them all? There must be a more logical
easier understanding to all of this!' he says. You see, that
is exactly what the Urantia Book provides. Everything is
made logical and clear according to human understanding; if
you are advanced enough intellectually to understand it. The
Urantia Book, the Unbelief Book, attempts to take the
mystery out of God's ways and translate everything into
human concepts which the carnal mind can grasp. It attempts
to put human understanding on par with Divine Wisdom and
Understanding, completely in contradiction to the Spirit of
Isaiah 55:8-9 quoted previously.

Contrary to the mentality in which the Unbelief Book is
written, Jesus did not come preaching some intellectual
dogma. He didn't come speaking in big fancy words. How can
you possibly win the poor and the illiterate of the world to
Christ if they can't even understand what you are talking
about? Even a fairly educated person has to struggle to
understand some of the things in the Urantia Book, the
Unbelief Book. The New Age psychobabble of the Urantia Book
sure isn't going to win the simple people of the world to
Christ! Jesus was spiritual, and He spoke of the things of
the Spirit through simple parables which the true sheep
could understand. And if they didn't, He later explained
things to them. He spoke of things of the Spirit, not of the
intellectual human mind. As Paul says, we must put on the
mind of Christ and resist our carnal human way of thinking
and seeing things:

"Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is
not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be."
(Romans 8:7)

"For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may
instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ."
(1 Corinthians 2:16)

"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed
by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that
good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
(Romans 12:2)

As I have clearly shown above, the Lord brought the animals
to Noah, just as He had brought them to Adam because they
were not afraid of man yet. Noah did not have to go about
some kind of global collection as this person is erroneously
assuming. Even if there was not one land mass, we still know
that the Lord brought the animals to the Ark, plain and
simple. The Scriptures prove this very clearly as I have
demonstrated.

As to this idea of returning animals to their proper
climatic environments, I believe I have offered one valid
explanation via the one super-continent scenario. Scientists
even have a name for it which I don't quite remember. I
believe it is something like 'Gondwanaland' or something
like that. Perhaps someone on the list can clear this up for
us since my memory is a bit faulty on this. Anyway, there
may have been one continent and one worldwide tropical
climate. It may be that a diversity of climates did not
exist until after The Flood when the Earth was tilted.
However, in thinking more on this, two other possibilities
have occurred to me, and the second one is a bold new
radical theory, at least for me. This is only personal
speculation, so you can take it for what it is worth. In
Genesis chapter one we read:

"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the
heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for
signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:"
(Genesis 1:14)

If we accept that the entire universe, was created during
the six days of Creation, then according to this verse,
climates must have existed from the very beginning, from the
very first week. If what scientists tell us is correct, then
it must be that the Lord tilted the Earth on its axis from
the day it was created in order to regulate the seasons. But
let us not put God in a box. If He is the All-Powerful
Creator, He could just as easily have made a global tropical
climate regardless of the positions of the Sun, Moon and
Earth.

The key point here is this word 'global'. Now, if dry land
currently takes up approximately one fourth of the Earth's
surface as we are taught, and if the tectonic plates 'float'
over the Earth's mantle, and if it was all one land mass as
I have proposed previously, is it not possible that the Lord
had that one land mass positioned in such a way that it was
all in the tropical areas of the Earth? This would
definitely eliminate the necessity of having to return the
animals to different types of climates, as they would all
exist in the same environmental conditions. If we also
accept that the Earth was divided into its current land
masses through slow but steady continental drift over the
last six millennia beginning in the days of Peleg, this would
explain how the animals, just like early man, were likewise
slowly carried to different parts of the world. Perhaps they
migrated to the various land masses before the continents
became completely separated by water. As stated above, one
thing which we cannot neglect is the fact that there was a
cradle of life from which the Earth was slowly populated. In
fact, technically speaking, there were two cradles of life.
The first one was the Garden of Eden. The second one was the
mountains of Ararat after The Flood. From that point on the
Earth, life slowly spread out to cover the world anew.

As can be seen, I am offering a lot of heavy speculation in
this article for your consideration. I am not saying that
this is definitely the way it was, for I honestly don't
know. None of us do simply because we were not there. Allow
me now to offer my final theory. It is primarily the same as
the above concept except for a bit of expansion on one of
the ideas. Even if there was one super-continent, how could
it possibly be positioned to allow all of it to be in the
tropics? It sounds like a difficult task as some land is
bound to loop quite a way northward and southward from the
Equator. Would the super-continent have been round? Square?
Rectangular? What if none of these are the right answer?
What if in fact it was strung all the way around the world
like one continuous elongated band extending out from the
equator? In other words, there would be land all along the
equator with a north sea or ocean, and a south sea or ocean.
Well, it's just a crazy idea which, of course, I cannot
prove; but can you disprove it? It would certainly create a
uniform climate even if the Earth was already tilted and
subject to various climates. Perhaps it was while Noah was
riding high on the waves above the mountains that the Lord
totally rearranged things so that when the Ark finally
landed, the Earth was totally unrecognizeable.

One final comment this person made in his attempt to
localize The Flood was the following:

"Don't think of only mammals, birds or reptiles; think also
of the billions of insects which would have easily drowned
in this alleged deluge."

----- End Of Quote -----

I am not exactly certain what the intention was in stating
this. One thing which might interest some of you to know is
that the Bible does not specifically mention the collection
of, or even the destruction of insects. Thus, it is really a
matter of personal interpretation. In describing what was to
go into the Ark, we read the following:

"And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the
earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life,
from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth
shall die. But with thee will I establish my covenant; and
thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy
wife, and thy sons' wives with thee. And of every living
thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into
the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male
and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after
their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his
kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them
alive." (Genesis 6:17-20)

"Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the
male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by
two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by
sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the
face of all the earth." (Genesis 7:2-3)

"They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle
after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth
upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his
kind, every bird of every sort. And they went in unto Noah
into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the
breath of life. And they that went in, went in male and
female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD
shut him in." (Genesis 7:14-16)

In describing the destruction of what remained on the Earth
outside of the Ark, we read the following:

"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 every living substance was destroyed which
was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and
the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they
were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive,
and they that were with him in the ark." (Genesis 7:21-23)

What I want to point out here is the word 'flesh'. Birds
have flesh, beasts have flesh, cattle have flesh, people
have flesh, and creeping things have flesh. The words
'creeping thing' might include insects, but I think it may
be referring primarily to reptiles such as snakes and
lizards and such which also have flesh. In his dissertation
on resurrected bodies, the Apostle Paul stated:

"All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of
flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes,
and another of birds." (1 Corinthians 15:39)

Collectively speaking then, these verses seem to be saying
that 'flesh' is that which covers muscles and bones;
something which all of the above possess. In this context,
insects really do not have flesh. Perhaps this word 'flesh'
in the book of Genesis is meant to be taken in a more
generic sense; but in comparing Scripture with Scripture as
is my practice, I think insects may have been left out of
the picture. Notice that it also says 'All in whose NOSTRILS
was the breath of life'. You normally don't think of insects
when you hear the word 'nostrils' do you? Only the four
previous groups really have what are actually referred to as
nostrils. It's possible that some insects came into the Ark
on the animals, or in some of the food they collected, or
maybe some crawled or flew in. I really don't know for sure.
Being as insects are very important to maintain the balance
in nature, even if they were all destroyed during The Flood,
the Lord could have easily created new ones. After all, He
is God. Most of us think that God created everything in the
first Six Days and that was the end of the creative process.
Why so? How do we not know that He didn't create things
after that? One example which I have pointed out in another
article concerning Genesis, is that the Lord made thorns and
thistles to grow AFTER the original Creation had been
completed. This occurred after the Lord had cursed the
ground following the First Pair's disobedience:

"And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the
voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I
commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is
the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all
the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it
bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the
field;" (Genesis 3:17-18)

The only other possibility is that the seeds for these
things were already in the ground because the Lord knew
prior to The Fall exactly what the outcome of things was
going to be. After all, He is All-Knowing and is not bound
by time as we are. As such, perhaps the seeds for the thorns
and the thistles were already in the ground but had not been
allowed to sprout until after the curse. Or you can also
accept that they were a brand new creation after The Fall.
It's up to you.

In conclusion then, the Global Flood was not an 'alleged'
event as this person wishes to believe. Regardless of how
many people reject the Bible and replace it with the Urantia
Book, the Unbelief Book, or who rely upon their carnal
wisdom and human knowledge to try to understand things, it
won't change the facts. The Flood was global in scope, just
as Genesis says, and NOT just a localized event. To say this
is to diminish the Power of God. It is an attempt to
diminish Him so that He easily and comfortably fits into our
limited human understanding. As explained elsewhere, the
carnal mind, the wicked human heart rebels against anything
which seems greater than itself. The lesson in all of this
is that the things of God which we do not yet understand, we
must simply accept by faith trusting that God will reveal
them to us in His time if we really need to know. To reject
the Bible because we don't understand parts of it, or
because it seems contradictory due to our own darkened minds
is utter foolishness. To replace it with something like the
Urantia Book, the Unbelief Book, is even worse! As I have
stated before, if you truly hunger after The Truth, you must
be willing to put on the mind of Christ and see things with
the eyes of your Spirit:

"For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may
instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ."
(1 Corinthians 2:16)

If you do this, the Lord will speak to you directly through
His Word and make things clear to you; but you must first
lower your defenses and have an open willing heart. I can
personally testify to this fact. The Lord is continually
teaching me things which leave me in total awe. I get so
inspired sometimes that I just sit hear saying 'Wow Lord!
That is really heavy!' The Lord just totally blows me away!
You can experience these things too. Just take a dive in the
waters of His Word. I hope this article has been a blessing
to many.
