‘Noah’ movie trailer out, while some are looking to the sky for the end.


A new depiction of the biblical flood made the news:

November 15, 2013 – CINEMA – The first official trailer for “Noah,” Daren Aronofsky’s much talked about follow-up to 2010’s “Black Swan,” hit the Internet Thursday. The latest adaptation of the Book of Genesis narrative stars a grizzly-bearded Russell Crowe as the titular hero, and also features Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins and Ray Winstone. With the exception of a leaked trailer that circulated online late last month, the clip is the first real look at the director’s grandiose take on the biblical epic. Despite the release of the trailer, there are reports that the director and Paramount are currently at war over the final cut of the film after test audiences reacted poorly to the movie in New York, Los Angeles and Orange County, Calif. “Noah” is expected to be released on March 28, 2014. http://nypost.com/2013/11/14/darren-aronofskys-action-packed-trailer-for-noah-debuts/

The Bible shows that that particular flood ended nearly all life of the earth:

21 And all flesh died that moved on the earth: birds and cattle and beasts and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man. 22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all that was on the dry land, died. 23 So He destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive. (Genesis 7:21-24)

As far as the things associated with Noah and the flood go, a concern that I have had for many years is that if at least part of the original ark that Noah built was found that this would be used to help not only persuade much of the world of the validity of the Genesis flood account (which is a good thing), but that it would also be used as a tool to recruit people to support the religion of the Beast of Revelation 13:1-8.

Both biblical (e.g. Revelation 13:4,8) and non-biblical prophecy warn of a time when an ecumenical religion will take over much of the world. If the biblical flood is ever truly accepted as having happened, this will likely represent part of a major turning point in getting more of humanity to accept a coming world religion that claims to be Christian.  The movie Noah may get more interest in the ark and finding it.  Since many cultures have a tale of the flood (see 300 Versions of the Flood), this will make the coming ecumenical religion acceptable even to certain cultures that do not normally refer to the Bible for their beliefs.

Jesus warned that the end times would be like the time  PRIOR to the flood of Noah’s time:

36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.  37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.  38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,  39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.  40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left.  41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left.  42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.  43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.  44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.  (Matthew 24:36-44)

While many are excited about the upcoming movie Noah, others are concerned that between now and shortly after Noah is released, there will be various signs in the heavens portending the return of Jesus Christ and/or doom and destruction like the time of Noah’s flood.  Specifically, some are pointing to the recently visible (to the unaided human eye) Comet ISON for that between now and the end of January 2014 (Could Comet ISON be Wormwood of Bible Prophecy?), while others are pointing to the expected appearance of blood moons between April 15, 2014 and September 28, 2015 (Blood Moons and Prophecy).  But those views differ from what the Bible teaches.

Of course, those who truly understand and rely on the Bible “have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place” (2 Peter 1:19, KJV). And we in the Continuing Church of God have the sure word because we believe what the Bible teaches and not opinions of humans that do not agree with the Bible.

We know the great flood happened.  We also know that while Jesus will return and the great tribulation will begin, neither of those will be prior to 2017–see also Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?  (that article also has information on the approximate date of the biblical flood that Noah was saved from).

Between Comet ISON, the movie Noah, and blood moons, various ones will wonder about the Bible and its prophecies.

Blood Moons and Prophecy There are four ‘blood moons’ expected in 2014 and 2015. Do they signal the Day of the Lord or the return of Jesus Christ? A related YouTube video is also available: Blood Moons, Prophecy, 2014, and 2015.
