This is DAY FOURTEEN 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.

To pick up where we left off, Jesus stated that “the day Noe entered into the ark… the flood came and destroyed them all” (Luke 17:27). At first glance, Genesis 7:1-10 appears to teach that there was a week long wait between when Noah entered into the ark and when the flood came. Let us continue to read, to see if any more insight can be gained.

“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. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark… 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 7:11-13 & 7:16)

We see in verses 11 & 13 that “the same day… were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened” was the “selfsame day” that Noah and his family entered the ark. This matches up with the testimony of Jesus Himself from Luke 17:27. “Selfsame day” must indeed mean the same day, not seven days later. How then do we reconcile this with what we read in Genesis 7:4-10? My belief is that after a century of ark building, God gave Noah a one week warning, “For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain…” (Genesis 7:4). Noah then wrapped things up and got the animals into the ark over the week that followed the warning. On that seventh day, Noah is finished making preparations and entered the ark with his family.

Just as God had promised, “And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were upon the earth… The same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened… In the selfsame day entered Noah… into the ark.” This seems to be the only way that Scripture can remain intact, as well as the reliability of Jesus’ testimony on the matter. Let us now back up again to what Jesus has said.

“For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation. 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 17:24-30)

By backing up a few verses, we see that this cited section begins with “so shall also the Son of man be in his day” and ends with “in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” The day that Noah entered the ark, the world was judged by God. The day that Lot left Sodom and Gomorrah, those cities were destroyed by God. The day that Jesus “raptures” His church, God’s end-time wrath will begin to be poured out upon the earth.

Point: The “Day of the Lord” begins the same day that the rapture happens.


Hopefully you are all enjoying this so far and maybe learning a bit along the way. @Verbal-d and @Papa-pepper are very pleased to be able to bring this series to you.

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!


Just in case you are new to this series and wanted to check out the previous audio or videos, here are links to the posts from each day of this series.

Also - A special thanks to @allforthegood for helping design my cover image!

Until next time…

Nice, I like the opening images in blue too!

Prior to the final destruction of ungodly mankind, the Bible says that there will be a great tribulation such that the world has never seen until that time neither will such a time ever repeat itself after then - Mat. 24:21. Noah"s figurative ark is being constructed today, most people do not decipher it. Just like in Noah"s day, we are busy eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage. Well, there is nothing wrong in these normal activities of life, the problem is that we have "failed to take no note" about the fact that we are living in the last days of this ungodly world and that son God will bring an end to it.

Thanks @papa-pepper for such a great initiative nice topics there for such a time.Daniel and Revelation prophecy needs to be taught to the world.@mnmleger l used to hang that 70 week prophecy chat on my wall thanks again


i agree with you sir. keep spreading the word.

The end time event = ••Eschatology•• was formed from two Greek words "eschatos" means "Last" , and Logos mean "word" or "signigicance"
• The book of Daniel 9 reveals the end time event.
•Daniel 9 records the famous Seventieth week of Daniel, a portion of the prophecy seems to have been fulfilled at the time of the death of The one whom the Bible refers to as the prince in Daniel 9 Vs 25.
•The 70th weeks means the arithmetic 70 x 7 weeks.

I enjoyed reading your post. Hope to read more like this. It is high time mankind desist from ungodly things cuz the end is so near.

This is a better explanation as to the confusion about when Noah entered the ark

Only God knows the exact time of end times, so we need to guard ourselves...

Just as with Noah and the fountains of the deep broke open, so will it be when the Son of Man comes! All will know and every knee will bow to Him!

good post too begin the new year with..thanks for sharing this :)
