Chapter 42: The Sign Of Noah
Understanding the Sign of Noah is to learn and be forewarned about the circumstances of Noah’s generation, which brought the deluge Apocalypse upon the antediluvian world. Jesus prophesied circumstances that would parallel the days of Noah.
This generation’s fate will not be manifested in watery, divine judgment. God did not promise to never punish humankind again; He only promised not to judge the earth with water again. Humankind will be judged once more, this time by fire, just as Sodom and Gomorrah were punished. 3 This is why the Sign of Noah is linked to Lot in Luke. Both Matthew and Luke echo Nephilim negligence that precipitated the corruption, echoes this generation ignores at its peril. Somehow Nephilim will mark this generation. The question is: how.
According to Gnostic teaching, the flood was merely a prototype for the end of the age. 4 Therefore, the end of the age will be destroyed by a similar catastrophe, but mostly with fire this time. The Popol Vuh also recorded a deluge of fire will destroy this age, whereas a deluge of floods destroyed the last age. 5 North American Indian legends further instruct that certain ages of the world inevitably end in catastrophe. 6 Both ancient Mayan and Babylonian astrological lore contain catastrophes past caused by fire at specific celestial precession cycles, or dates. 7 Remember, the Egyptian priest in Plato’s Timaeus warned future generations that the earth was traumatized many times throughout the ages with global catastrophes caused by fire and water, 8 and it will be again.
That Apocalypses would reoccur was a doctrinal foundation stone in antiquity. The Roman author Seneca quoted Berosus, stating that when planets align in Cancer, the world is ravaged by fire; when the planets align in Capricorn, the world is ravaged with water. 9 Berosus was one of numerous ancients citing global destruction within cycles of time, but according to John Michael Greer, Berosus is the only known astronomer to have fixed dates to these cataclysmic events based entirely on astrological alignments and celestial precession of the zodiacal ages. 10 Earth’s orbit moves the equinoctial and solistial points backwards throughout the zodiac at a rate of one degree every seventy- two years; one great month (a zodiacal age like Pisces) is 2,160 years. 11
These astrological and astronomical signs are undoubtedly end- time signs in the stars, sun, and moon prophesied by Luke, Matthew, and Mark: “There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars. On earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.” 12
