Atheists, and those without faith, condemned by the faith of Job and Noah

Updated on August 21, 2010

Noah and Job, real men of faith.


By Noah's obedience in doing all that Jehovah told him in the preservation of himself and his family [eight souls] and a selection of the animals, Noah condemned the rest of the world to death. Genesis 6:22.

Hebrews 11:7 (King James Version)

7By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

In the case of Job, all he had was what his eyes could see [no telescope, no satellite photos, no holy scrolls], and what he heard [what was passed down as the spoken word]. Yet, Job, maintained his faith despite serious losses and a deteriorating health. Even Job's wife and so-called friends prompted him to curse Jehovah.
With his endurance, Job spoke to God, who manifested himself through a windstorm.
As a result of the faith of Job, a man who had faith based on what limited evidence he could see and what he heard, there certainly, is no excuse for ANYONE, to doubt, that there IS a Grand Creator.

      Who is man to question God, shall the clay influence the potter?

      Most individuals are apparently unaware of the situation 120 years prior to Noah's flood. Research should reveal

      that mutant offspring from certain angels who forsook their position in heaven and cohabited with "daughters of men", were dominant on earth then. These were called Nephilims and were giants bent on violence.

      Let us look at Jude 6: “And the angels that did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling place he has reserved with eternal bonds under dense darkness for the judgment of the great day.

      The Scripture above is directly connected to the Scripture at 2 Peter 2: 4. What is it referring to exactly though?

      A look a Genesis 6: 1, 2 read: Now it came about that when men started to grow in numbers on the surface of the ground and daughters were born to them, then the sons of the true God began to notice the daughters of men, that they were good looking; and they went taking wives for themselves, namely, all whom they chose.

      This Scripture helps us to more fully understand what took place. It says that some angels [sons of the true God] forsook their positions in heaven and chose wives from the daughters of men. These rebellious spirit creatures of God de-materialized [resumed spirit characteristics] and so were NOT destroyed with their hybrid offspring and the rest of wicked mankind in the flood in Noah’s time. These rebel angels are called DEMONS or REBELS and have joined forces with the Devil/Satan [slanderer/ adversary]

      Please SEE also, 1 Peter 3: 19, 20 read: In this state also he went his way and preached to the spirits in prison, who had once been disobedient when the patience of God was waiting in Noah’s day, while the ark was being constructed, in which a few people, that is, eight souls, were carried safely through the water.

      Speaking of Noah and the mighty ark that lay parallel to a supposed covenant to save the chosen ones of the past: This God you speak about would be "shit-out-of-luck," as they say, if this divine creator relied on the lazy, obese, spoiled, pampered, coddled, delicate pansies & tulips of today's time of sluggish gluts & flatulent fu*ks with poor cognitive function -- especially if that "God" of the past asked Americans (for example) of today to get off of their fat, lazy asses to do something besides eat, sleep, and draw free funds.

      Of course I'm talking about the majority, as not all people fall under that category, but then again, ain't that what the flood was about - to wipe out the majority?

      Hmm, the more I think about it, the more the "Great Flood" makes Adolf Hitler's strategy look better every day. Interesting post... Many thanks! ;)
