Yahu'shua told us that his second coming would be “as in the days of Noah” and this gives us some important patterns to observe so that we can assimilate the judgment of the flood, to the judgment of Yah's final wrath.
Genesis 7:11 tells us that the flood began in the 600th year of Noah’s life, and we can see a pattern here that in the 6,000th year since creation or the 6th “day” the resurrection of the believers in Messiah will occur “as in the days of Noah.”
In the same way that Noah and his family were “taken up” in the ark before YHWH poured out his wrath on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights in the form of rain, the wrath of YHWH begins to be poured out upon the earth as soon as the saints are “taken up” in the resurrection.
It was during the building of the ark, that Noah and his family suffered persecution or “tribulation” as they were mocked and ridiculed by the ungodly for building an ark on dry land:
1st Peter 3:20 …Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of Elohim waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water…
The wrath of Elohim was poured out with the flood once Noah and his family went into the ark, and after that, nobody else was saved. This means that there will be nobody saved after the resurrection. The only people that will be “left behind” are those who are appointed to God’s wrath. All of the saints get resurrected at one time:
Daniel 12:1-2 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
There will not be multiple resurrections. Everyone whose name is written in the book will be resurrected at one time, after the “time of trouble” or “tribulation.”
YHWH “baptized the earth” in the “water of repentance” with the flood because he “repented” that he made man:
Genesis 6:6-7 And it repented YHWH that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And YHWH said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
The final baptism will be the “baptism by fire” which Yah will bring to Mystery Babylon, the great whore of the earth, as YHWH will pour out his wrath in the form of fire:
Revelation 18:8-9 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is YHWH Elohim who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning.
Yah's final judgment to Satan and to those who are deceived by him comes also in the form of fire:
Revelation 20:7-14 “…And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison…and fire came down from Elohim out of heaven, and devoured them…..And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever…..And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before Elohim; and the books were opened…..And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire…”
More Patterns from the Days of Noah:
1.) In the parable of the 10 virgins (Matthew 25), there were 5 foolish virgins who were not ready and 5 wise virgins that were ready at Messiah's return. Once the 5 wise went in, the door was shut and nobody could get in. This means no people get saved after the Resurrection/Catching away of the bride (Rapture)!
2.) In the flood that YHWH sent in the days of Noah, once Noah's family went into the ark, the door was shut and no people were saved after that!
Do you see the pattern? Noah and his family were mocked as they built this ark on dry land. During this time, they endured tribulation (persecution). Once Noah and his family were in the ark, there was a seven - day waiting period before Yah poured out his wrath in the form of rain. (Genesis 7:4).
Likewise, as Yahu'shua said that his coming would be as in the days of Noah,when he catches away his bride, the door is shut and nobody can be saved after this. Then there is a seven day literal marriage (not seven years) before the Bride returns with Messiah and he pours out his wrath that is the same thing as when Noah and his family went into the ark.
Do you see this pattern?
There are 7 days between Noah's family entering into the ark (and the door is shut) until the wrath is poured out in the form of rain.
There are also 7 days between the bride being taken up into the marriage (and the door is shut) until Messiah returns and pours out his wrath in the form of fire.
Yah Baptized the earth the first time in water, and then the second time he will baptize the earth in fire! The same pattern exists with John baptizing in water, followed by Yahu'shua baptizing in fire! (Joel 2:20, Acts 2:19 Revelation 16:8, 17:16, 18:18).
Yom Kippur means “Day of Atonement” and this is a prophetic shadow picture of the “Day of Wrath” when Messiah returns riding on a white horse along with his army, which is his bride and they are also riding white horses as seen in Revelation 19.
The Fall Feasts of YHWH detail the timing of the end time events as follows:
1.) The Abomination of Desolation will be seen in the 3rd Temple (Matthew 24:15) and then the 42 months of the Antichrist's false ministry will begin, while concurrently the Two Witnesses prophecy against him globally for 3.5 years.
2.) Then there will be 30 more days of the month of Elul (1,290 days) see Daniel 12:11. At the end of the 1,290 days will begin the 7th month of Tishri (Feast of Trumpets), and this is “the last trump” (1st Cor 15:51-53). And this is when the 7th angel sounds as soon as the two witnesses are taken up. This all happens concurrently with the other books of Revelation leading up to Revelation 20, as the book of Revelation cannot be read sequentially.
3.) There will be a 7 day literal marriage (Wedding of Jacob, Leah & Rachel--one week) and this is when we are changed into incorruption. Those 5 foolish virgins who are not ready are caught off guard by the “thief in the night” and they shall not escape (1st Thessalonians 5:2-3).
*Note: What I see, is that there is the resurrection of Leah (10 Northern Tribes of Israel assimilated as Gentiles) and there is a 7 day wedding. Then on Yom Kippur, Yahu'shua comes back and gets Rachel also. Remember in the prophetic pattern, Laban (symbolic of the Father), said to Jacob, “finish the week with Leah, and I will give you Rachel also.” Jacob was married to Rachel (2 southern tribes, Benjamin & Judah, Jews) at the end of the “week” after 7 days with Leah. And so on Yom Kippur, the day of Atonement, is when the house of Judah (Jews) discover if their names are written in the book of life, they also call this “face to face.” This will be the same day that Rachel (Jews) see him face to face and they will look upon him whom they pierced and they will mourn for him as one mourns for his only son (Zechariah 12:10).
Rachel will also be married to Yahu'shua (the remnant of Jews who did not take the mark of the Beast). And they also will be changed into incorruption at this point. The Two Witnesses are a special group of people who thought that they were Gentiles (Ephraim) and they discover their Hebraic Roots, so they join the Jews (Judah), and this is when the Two sticks (Ephraim & Judah) become one stick in the Lord’s hand (Ezekiel 37:16-17) and this is the same “one new man” the Apostle Paul spoke about in Ephesians 2:12-15.
This is that two witness group. They also are taken at the 7th trumpet (as the 7th angel sounds) in Revelation 11:15. This group goes with redeemed Leah (Gentiles who become one new man with Jews). Then 7 days later, the remnant of Rachel who did not take the mark, are also redeemed on Yom Kippur and changed. Then the two groups (Leah & Rachel) Gentile & Jew go into the marriage together to celebrate the drinking of the wine of the covenant on Feast of Tabernacles.
4.) There are 10 days between the Feast of Trumpets & the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), and so there are 3 of those days where the bride is given a 3 day notice that the groom is on the way. She hears the shouts from a 3 days journey in the distance and she knows that some time in those 3 days, he will be there to catch her away.
5.) While this is happening in the heavenlies, the children of wrath are having bowls of wrath being poured out on them and they still won’t repent (Revelation 14-20). This all happens during the 10 days of awe.
6.) After the 10 days of awe (3 day shouts and 7 day marriage), the bride comes back on white horses with the groom (Revelation 19). This day is known as “face to face” when the bride removes the veil and she sees him face to face. Yahu'shua takes vengeance on her enemies and avenges the blood of the saints on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). This is the day of wrath for the wicked.
7.) There are 5 days between the Day of Atonement & The Feast of Tabernacles, and this is the white throne judgment seat of Messiah---where the dead are judged. The righteous will receive rewards as to whether his works were of “wood, hay or stubble” (1st Corinthians 3:12).
8.) The Feast of Tabernacles is the wedding celebration where the groom drinks the cup of the covenant with his bride and consummates the marriage.
