Genesis Two

“The Great Flood”
Part 1

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, (Genesis:6:1)

That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. (Genesis:6:2)

And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. (Genesis:6:3)

I need you to get that picture you have in your head of a human being, whether it’s a male figure or a female figure out of your head!

I should have made this clear in the beginning. I will make it clear in the beginning when I do the rewrite for the book, but for now I need you to understand, when the “Author” writes the words “Man,” “Woman,” “Son” or “Daughter” in Genesis chapters one through ten, a literary device called Anthropomorphism is being used.

An anthropomorphism is a literary device that can be defined as a technique in which a writer ascribes human traits, ambitions, emotions, or entire behaviors to animals, non-human beings, natural phenomena, or objects.

Think of God as an “Army” of microorganisms working together to create, build and control things.

When necessary these microorganisms join together and become things. They are both male and female, so they reproduce continually.

Think of these microorganisms as being “Oxygen” which is “Air” which is “Wind.”

Think of the LORD as their Commander and Chief, the mind of these microorganisms, which, with just a thought can change the “Wind” into a “Tornado!”

Think of “Man,” created in the image and likenesses of God, as a far less “Powerful” version of that “Army” of microorganisms whose “Commander and Chief ” is God.

Think of “Man,” formed of the dust of the ground as “Man,” created in the image and likenesses of God encapsulated inside a body made of the dust of the ground; a “Seed,” that will develop and grow over time into a human being; with behavior issues.

The first living, breathing “Seed” (man formed of the dust of the ground) is named Adam.

Then came Eve and so on, until after generations of developing, the seed became a “Plant,” the plant became a “Tree” and the tree became a “Human Being.”

Something like that…

In Genesis chapter six verses one through three, the “Sons” of God and the “Daughters” of Man are microorganisms.

In verse three:

And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. (Genesis:6:3)

The LORD is speaking of “Future Man.” That is, “Man” in human form; like me and you.
We know this because, the characters being written about in chapter six are still living hundreds of years.

The word Flesh in this instance, has two meanings:

(1) flesh (from its freshness); by extension {body} person;
(2) to {stray} that {is} (figuratively) sin (with more or less apology): – X also for {that} {deceived} {err} go {astray} sin ignorantly.

I’m going to say the second definition associated with the word flesh is the reason God destroyed everything on Earth.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. (Genesis:6:4)

Giant means; a {feller} that {is} a bully or tyrant: – giant.

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (Genesis:6:5)

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. (Genesis:6:6)

And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. (Genesis:6:7)

But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. (Genesis:6:8)

The name Noah means; rest; quiet: – rest ({-ed} -ing place). to {rest} that {is} settle down; to dwell.

These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. (Genesis:6:9)

And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Genesis:6:10)

Noah’s Ark may seem unbelievable to a lot of people, but Noah and his three sons; Shem, Ham and Japheth are taken very serious.

In addition to the Book of Genesis, Noah is mentioned in the Old Testament in the First Book of Chronicles, and the books of Tobit, Wisdom, Sirach, Isaiah, Ezekiel, 2 Esdras, 4 Maccabees; in the New Testament, he is mentioned in the gospels of Matthew, and Luke, the Epistle to the Hebrews, 1st Peter and 2nd Peter. Noah was the subject of much elaboration in the literature of later Abrahamic religions, including the Quran.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. (Genesis:6:11)

And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. (Genesis:6:12)

Corrupt – to {decay} that {is} (causatively) ruin (literally or figuratively).

Way – road (as trodden); figuratively a course of life or mode of {action}.

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)

Violence – by implication wrong; by metonymy unjust gain: – cruel ({-ty}) {damage} {false} {injustice} X {oppressor} {unrighteous} violence ({against} {done}) violent ({dealing}) wrong.

I believe the story of Noah’s Ark to be a metaphor. The “Author” loaded the building of the ark with seemingly, great detail to create a sense of reality in the mind of the reader.

At the same time, instructing Noah to bring:

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. (Genesis:6:19)

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:6:20)

And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. (Genesis:6:21)

It is hard enough for some people to believe that the ark could have held two of every living thing and food for them, then in Genesis chapter seven verses two and three:

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. (Genesis:7:2)

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:7:3)

But then to throw in seven of every clean beast and seven of every fowl? The male and the female?

Knowing the “Author” like I do, there’s got to be something up with that!

I f*%king knew it!!!

In Genesis chapter six verse nineteen where the LORD instructed Noah, “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.” (Genesis:6:19)

The words, “Male and Female” are the same, “Male and Female” that the “Author” used in Genesis chapter one verse twenty seven:

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis:1:27)

Male – {remembered} that {is} a male (of man or {animals} as being the most noteworthy sex).

Female – to {puncture} literally (to {perforate} with more or less violence) or figuratively (to {specify} {designate } female (from the sexual form).

That being the case, just like the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God, every living thing of all flesh is “Pure Consciousness,” in the form of microorganisms.

Then in Genesis chapter seven verse two:

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. (Genesis:7:2)

The words “Male and Female” are the same “Male and Female” that the “Author” used in Genesis chapter two verse twenty three:

And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. (Genesis:2:23)

Male (same as “Man”) – an unused root meaning to be extant.

Female (same as “Woman”) – The first form is the feminine of the “Male” definition: to be extant.

Wow, that just confirmed, at least in my mind, that God is still with me…

I was worried that the “Author” had stopped writing or maybe just stopped communicating with me.

I’m thinking, the first five or six chapters which are loaded with literary devices, are the “Key” to how to read the rest of the “Holy Bible.”

Anyway, I take back what I said about the story of Noah’s Ark being a metaphor.

According to this information gleaned from the scriptures of “The Holy Bible” and the definitions taken from the Strong’s Concordance; God, Man and “every living thing of all flesh on Noah’s Ark are entities of “Pure Consciousness,” both male and female (Hermaphrodite); microorganisms.

A hermaphrodite is an organism that has both male and female reproductive organs and can perform both the male and female parts of reproduction. In some hermaphrodites, the animal starts out as one sex and switches to the other sex later in its life.

Therefore, Noah’s family, every living thing of all flesh and food for them could’ve and did fit on Noah’s Ark.

And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood. (Genesis:7:7)

Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth, (Genesis:7:8)

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 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. (Genesis:7:17)

And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. (Genesis:7:18)

And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. (Genesis:7:19)

Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. (Genesis:7:20)

I have a problem with Genesis chapter seven verse twenty, so I looked it up in the Strong’s Concordance.

Prevail – be strong; by implication to {prevail} act insolently: – {exceed} {confirm} be {great} be {mighty} {prevail} put to more {[strength]} {strengthen} be {stronger} be valiant.

No help there.

I’m looking for anything to explain to me, why in Genesis chapter six verse fifteen it reads:

And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. (Genesis:6:15)

Then in Genesis chapter seven verse twenty it reads:

Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. (Genesis:7:20)

If the Ark was thirty cubits tall and the waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, wouldn’t that be like putting a yacht in a pond?

I know, I’m just like that. I question everything.

So I went to Google to see what everyone else was saying. Here are two comments:

Fifteen cubits upward.—This apparently was the draught – Special sailing lingo – the depth for a boat to be able to float) of the ark, computed after it had settled.

The phrase “fifteen cubits” in 7:20 must refer to how deep the Ark sank into the water when it was fully laden.

Pick one!

I’m going to say the story of Noah’s Ark, seeing that every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth was in the form of pure consciousness/microorganisms encapsulated in bodies formed of the dust of the ground, is written from a “Pure Consciousness, other “Realm” point of view.

Therefore, it makes little difference how many cubits upward the waters prevailed.

Of course if I discover otherwise I will post a correction.
