BIBLE STUDY 8-MARCH 3-17-2020


READ THE BIBLE WITH AMANDA GRACE-BIBLE STUDY NOTES
NOACH (NOAH) PART 3

Where we left Noah in the last video He was sorting through the largest zoo known to mankind and loading the animals 7 kinds of every clean animals, and 2 of every unclean animal, onto the Ark and the Lord says to Noah and his family COME into the ark.
You know it’s by no accident that the ark and cross were both made of wood, because one represents the other.
Noah received an everlasting covenant from the Lord through the rainbow, which we will get into, and we received an everlasting covenant through the blood of Jesus Christ, so truly Noah is us, he represents each and every one of us facing destruction and the salvation of the Lord and His mercy in the midst of Judgment saves us.

Jeremiah 31:31-34 speaks of this covenant KJV:
31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
So here we pick up where the animals are being loaded into the ark:

Genesis 7:7-10 King James Version (KJV):
The flood [the great downpour of rain] was forty days and nights on the earth; and the waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it floated [high] above the land. 18 The waters became mighty and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the waters. 19 The waters prevailed so greatly and were so mighty and overwhelming on the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere under the heavens were covered. 20 [In fact] the waters became [c]fifteen cubits higher [than the highest ground], and the mountains were covered. 21 All living beings that moved on the earth perished birds and cattle (domestic animals), [wild] animals, all things that swarm and crawl on the earth, and all mankind. 22 Everything on the dry land, all in whose nostrils was the breath and spirit of life, died. 23 God destroyed (blotted out, wiped away) every living thing that was on the surface of the earth; man, and animals and the crawling things and the birds of the heavens were destroyed from the land. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive. 24 The waters covered [all of] the earth for a hundred and fifty days (five months).
7 & 8  And Noah and his sons and his sons’ wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood. Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of everything that creepeth upon the earth,There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
So, we see here once again God is a God of order, 2 by 2 they entered the ark, the animals in pairs, male and female just as it was at the beginning in the garden, Adam, was paired with Eve.
So at 969 years old when Methusaleh, Noah’s grandfather, died, remember Methuselah's name means “his death shall bring” so his death triggered the 7 day countdown to the flood, as the lord gave Noah the traditional 7 day mourning period as was customary to mourn his grandfather.

Once again here we see the number 7, 7 represents:
The number 7 shows up for the appointment of sacred periods; (as in 7 days until the flood, one the 7th day God rested from that specific creation process, the book of Esther starts on page 777 of the Bible, there are 7, 7 year periods to the jubilee year the 50th year, we see here that the rain begins in chapter 7 of genesis, and we thus find the 7th month ushered in by the Feast of Trumpets, and signalized by the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles and the Great Day of Atonement; 7 weeks as the interval between the Passover and the Pentecost; the 7th year as the sabbatical year; and the year: succeeding 7 X 7 years as the Jubilee year. Seven days were appointed as the length of the feasts of Passover and Tabernacles (biblestudytools.org).

Noah is in his 600th year when the rains begin:
Genesis 7:11:

 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month, on that same day all the fountains of the great deep [subterranean waters] burst open, and the windows and floodgates of the heavens were opened.
Now Cheshvan is the 2nd month, Tishri is the first, of the Hebrew calendar and it was the 17th day of that month that the Flooding began.
Interestingly enough Tishri, the first day of this month, is Rosh Hashanah.
ROSH-meaning head, head of the year, also known as the feast of trumpets.

If that’s the 1st day of the 1st month, that is when the Lord created the heavens and the earth:
Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God ([a]Elohim[b]created [by forming from nothing] the heavens and the earth.

Let’s cross reference this to the new Testament to prove this:
John 1:1: 
In the beginning [before all-time] was the Word ([a]Christ), and the Word was with God, and [b]the Word was God Himself.
So, this was the calendar used for Noah’s time where Tishri is the 1st month and Nisan is the 7th month.  In Moses time these changes and the Lord gives the Hebrew people a different calendar where Nissan becomes the 1st month and Tishri becomes the 7th month. However, in Noah’s time Tishri was the first month and nisan is the 7th month, and we see for good reason.
A new calendar emerges in Moses Time. However, we are dealing with the second month in Noah’s time of Teshvan.

Genesis 7:11-12:
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12 And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.
That word for Great deep is Tehom which literally means THE DEEP or ABYSS.

The first place we see this word tehom show up is in Genesis 1:2:
 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness [a]was on the face of the deep (Tehom). And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
Darkness over the face of the TEHOM the DEEP.
Interesting in Hebrew that one thing(word) will come forth from another word.

EXAMPLE: DEEP-Tehom and WATER-MAYIM.
Tehom ends with a mem, MEM in the HEBREW Alphabet means water, chaos, or blood.
So, if you look at it this way, what is deep, the WATERS.
The word for fountain, which is in Genesis 7:11, is Mayan, which also begins with a MEM, which means water.
Mayan ends with a nun, which looks like a dot with a tale or squiggly line attached, nun means seed, fish/life, or continue.
And what comes out of Fountains, Mayan, RIVERS, Nachal, which begins with a nun because it means fish/life and fish are in RIVERS.

Another example: ABBA is Father is ends in a Beyt which sort of looks like the letter G laying down on its back, Beyt means house or family.
And SON is Ben, which begins with the Beyt Abba ends with because the son comes forth out of the Father!

So, there is your lesson in Hebrew!

So, now back to the Flood the deep has burst open and water is coming out but at the same time you also have something happening that humankind has NEVER seen before and that is rain falling from the Heavens!

We see this day 2 of genesis chapter 1:
Genesis 1:6-8: 
Then God said, “Let there be a [a]firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. So, the evening and the morning were the second day.

Now what on earth does that means?!! Divide the waters from the waters?
So, you have this waters on the earth, and to put an expanse, a separation between the waters you will ends up with water down below on earth and this watery bubble of water above and the expanse is literally between the waters separating them:
WATER
EXPANSE
WATER

So, it looks like that:
Now why is this important? Because it’s this water on the outer bubble that in a way bursts and is coming down during the flood.
What happens when a woman is about to give birth, like the process begins, what’s the first thing that happens? Her WATER BREAKS! That watery bubble around the baby bursts and comes down signaling the very important birthing process has begun.
In the same way when this watery area across the Heavens the Lord causes it to BURST it was signaling that the process of delivering the earth from all the wickedness the enemy had attempted to infect it with, to stop the seed of Jesus from being born, had begun.
Now if we look this is important in genesis 1 on days 1,2,3,4,5,6 the Lord sees His work as Good, HOWEVER on Day two you will see the Lord NEVER says that it was GOOD.

Genesis 1:6-8:
Then God said, “Let there be a [c]firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. So, the evening and the morning were the second day.
You see the Lord NEVER says that is good! That’s very interesting don’t you think.
A theory: one of the reasons when the lord separated the waters, since the Lord knows the end from the beginning and the beginning from the ending John 1:1 In the beginning was the word, and the word, was with God and the Word was God!, that when the Lord separated the waters and made that bubble of water up near the Heavens, he KNEW EXACTLY what that was going to be used for, to destroy the earth. The Lord For knew its purpose. So that is not good because the Lord grieved at having to destroy the earth.

Genesis 7:12:  
It rained on the earth for forty days and forty nights.
Interestingly enough the Bible says Noah brought into the Ark the animals, and His family but there is something missing in the text. There is not mention that Noah brought in any food.
We must remember that Noah could not run to the nearest Costco and buy in bulk everything including mass amounts of TOILET PAPER!
So, no mention of food and water.
And the Lord is the one who closes the door to the ark.

Genesis 7:16:
So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the LORD shut him in. So, there is 1 window near the top of the ark, its covered in pitch which is very dark. Its VERY DARK inside this ark. So, no light, no food, no water for months and months.

HOWEVER, there is a clue Genesis 7:1:
Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you with all your household, for you [alone] I have seen as righteous (doing what is right) before Me in this generation. 
Cross reference this to the new testament:

Matthew 11:28:
COME to ME all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
So, the Lord is not saying here GO as in sending them on their way as Jesus, Yeshua, did with the disciples when he said GO ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
NO, the Lord says COME into the ark which means the Lord is already in the Ark calling them under the covering, the TEBAH, with Him!
So, the Lord is in the ark with Noah, his family, and the animals.
What we can compare this to is when the lord Called Moses up Mt Sinai to be with Him.

Exodus 34:27-28:
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.” 28 Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he ate no bread and drank no water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments.
Here we see again 40 days and 40 nights, like Noah, Moses was with the Lord on Mt Sinai and he ate NO bread and Drank no water, why? Because the Lord sustained him.

New Testament Cross reference-John 6:35: 
Jesus replied to them, “[a]I am the Bread of Life. The one who comes to Me will never be hungry, and the one who believes in Me [as Savior] will never be thirsty [for that one will be sustained spiritually]. Because HE IS the bread and the one who COMES to Him will NEVER be hungry, and who believes in him will NEVER be thirsty. The Lord said to Noah COME because He is the Creator of Life and the sustainer of Life AND as far as the firmament issue is concerned being in darkness in the ark, they were not in darkness!

John 9:5:
As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world [giving guidance through My word and works].”
So, the Lord was their light source as well, so they had more light than con Edison, general electric, NYSEG, and central Hudson combined!! Oh, did they have light!
Under the ark, the TEBAH, the covering of the Lord God they had EVERYTHING they could need, both Noah and the animals to sustain them during that time!

Genesis 7:13-15:
1 On the very same day Noah and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark, 14 they and every animal according to its kind, all the livestock according to their kinds, every moving thing that crawls on the earth according to its kind, and every bird according to its kind, every winged thing of every sort. 15 So they went into the ark with Noah, two by two of all living beings in which there was the breath and spirit of life.
So, if we add up the amount of people Noah plus 1 wife plus 3 sons plus 3 wives equal eight people entered the ark. If we look at the number 8 biblically, and I have said this many times before, it represents new beginnings and this for sure, they were exiting out of the old life, the wicked sinful world, and were entering a new beginning on earth after the transitional 40 days and nights had taken place and the flood waters begin to recede.

Number Forty:
40 appears to be a transitional number as well, the end of 1 era, the exiting out of one period of time and the entering of a new era. The Jews wandered in the desert 40 years after being delivered from pharaoh and Egypt. That was a transitional time to enter a new beginning, the promised land I believe in the book of Joshua.
If we take the Lord’s name, Yahweh, and break it down via the Hebrew alphabet:
1.    Yod, Y, numerical value 10, is a hand, in Hebrew alphabet looks like an arm with a hand.

3.     vav, v, o, w, u, numerical value 6, looks like a Y or a staff, is Hook, Nail, Attach, Upright Man.
4.     he, H, numerical value 5, looks like a man with hands raised, is BEHOLD! Open window or revelation.

TOTAL:
Then you add the numerical values up =26=2+6=8.
Sentence reads hand BEHOLD nail/upright man, BEHOLD.
Yod (Yud) He (hey), Vav, he (hey).
The Hand REVEALS, The Nail Reveals= JESUS.
So revealed the lamb of God who being nailed to the cross revealed the Lord’s plan to save humanity.

Genesis 7:17-24:
This is VERY Serious and SOBERING. The word blotted out is used. The Lord is blotting out EVERY LIVING thing on the earth, EXCEPT Noah, his family, and the animals who are safe with the Lord God in the Tebah, the ark, the covering. However, this magnificent creation that the Lord thy God expended so much Power creating, all that work, he had to witness get destroyed because it had become so Corrupted with wickedness. Imagine how grieved in His heart the Lord was. Imagine yourselves making an enormous thanksgiving dinner or large dinner and you spend all this time and effort making it just amazing down to EVERY detail. Then the entire meal becomes infected with bugs and has to be thrown out, the WHOLE MEAL in the garbage. And ALL you were allowed to save was 1/8 of the stuffing, to give you just a taste of how the Lord must have felt.
Here is something to think about, the Lord NEVER says the fish and marine life would die or died. He ONLY says all on land would HOWEVER the fish and marine life survived the flood because the Lord can not drown marine life. So somehow the wickedness that had become so concentrated on the earth at that time did not saturate and infect the marine life IN the waters.
FIVE MONTHS!!!! is the number associated with Grace, the Grace of God and we are about to see why 5 months in Genesis 8:1:
And God remembered and thought kindly of Noah and every living thing and all the animals that were with him in the ark; and God made a wind blow over the land, and the waters receded.

THE LORD REMEMBERED:
Exodus 2:23-24:
 Now it happened after a long time [about forty years] that the king of Egypt died. And the children of Israel (Jacob) groaned and sighed because of the bondage, and they cried out. And their cry for help because of their bondage [a]ascended to God. 24 So God heard their groaning and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel).
Here we see the number 40 again as being the beginning of a new era, and the Lord REMEMBERED His Covenant.
It was like “Oh my gosh NOAH!!!! My goodness I just remembered I still have them with Me floating in this ark.”
So here after such a harsh Judgment we see the grace/mercy of God, Yahweh, “and God remembered Noah AND the animals”
After 5 months 5 being grace.
And the lord caused a wind to blow over the land and the waters receded. Where do we also see the Lord sending a wind to recede waters?

Exodus 14:21: 
Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord swept the sea back by a strong east wind all that night and turned the seabed into dry land, and the waters were divided.

Question: Where else in God’s word were the heavens shut up from rain?
1 Kings 17:1:
Now Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the settlers of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word.

Genesis 8:2-5:
 Also the fountains of the deep [subterranean waters] and the windows of the heavens were closed, the [pouring] rain from the sky was restrained, and the waters receded steadily from the earth. At the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters had diminished.  4 On the seventeenth day of the seventh month [five months after the rain began], the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat [in [a]Turkey]. The waters continued to decrease until the tenth month; on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen.
The Tebah, the Ark, RESTS, on Mt Ararat July (7)/ 17 and it took until October (10)/1 for the mountain tops to become visible, 73 days.
The 7th month on the Hebrew calendar is Nisan, the 17 day of Nisan is the Feast of first fruits.

The mountains become visible the 10 months (7 + 3) =10 divine order.

The number 7 is the Lord’s perfection.

The 3 is the complex trinity, father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

You see the combination of 37 or 73 these two numbers seem to always be together and now we see why!
