This is DAY THIRTEEN of the daily devotional.
I am releasing a 50 day daily devotional about the end-times as revealed in Scripture. Along with the text, I will be providing a video where I cover the text of the day, and @verbal-d will be providing an audio version of it. That way, whether you want to read, watch, or listen, you'll be able to enjoy this study as you wish.
The plan is to release this devotional over the next 50 consecutive days, but life may "get in the way." We will do our best, but please be patient with me if I fall behind.

DAY 13 : SAME DAY 1
“And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” (Luke 17:26-30)
“They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all” (Luke 17:27).
However, He certainly does state that “the day Noe entered into the ark… the flood came and destroyed them all”. But does that necessitate the exact, same day? Let’s back up to Genesis quick to make sure.
“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… 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. And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him. And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his son’s wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood… And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.” (Genesis 7:1, 7:4-7, & 7:10)
If these verses were all that we had, I could see how someone might be able to think that Noah entered the ark seven days prior to the flood coming. However, we can neither conclude that Scripture has contradicted itself, nor that Jesus lied. What then shall we do? Unfortunately, I must leave you with a “To be continued…” for today.
Tomorrow, we will pick up where we left off.
Point #1: I believe that the “Day of the Lord” will begin on the same exact day that the rapture happens.
Point #2: In Luke 17, Jesus seems to teach that both of these events will happen on the same day.
Point #3: So far, Genesis appears to disagree.
If anyone is really interested, I did post the entire volume through an alt account over a year ago. I did so as an experiment to see how hard it would be for a new user to get noticed on steemit, so I didn't let anyone know that I was doing it. You can click here to a post that has links to the entire 50 days of this devotional if you really want to read ahead. That information has always been available there since I first posted it. It is not the purpose of this series to just copy all of my previous work, but instead to transform it into some new outlets by releasing it in an audio and video format, to broaden the reach that this work has.
Again, though I will certainly never claim to know it all, I do believe that many are being lead astray by some popular beliefs. I hope that this project will be able to help many others understand the end-times more accurately. Thanks!
